The Trench and the Boys

I have to publish this post before the end of cold season in Southern hemisphere. While trench coats are colourful and mood uplifter on a rather dreary and cold mornings, I wouldn’t wear these to work on a normal winter’s day since it couldn’t really protect me from Sydney harbour’s chilly wind even in mid morning or early night. I like wearing trench on a Sunday to church or when I’m out and about with the boys in the shops and around the neighbourhood.

My love for trench is growing and here goes a juxtaposition of my trench coats and the boys. First up in green trench with black and white stripes lining. It’s nice donning it with a body-hugging dress underneath so it won’t look frumpy then leave it unbuttoned.

It’s not easy grabbing my eldest son to pose with me, thus, resulting to a non-smiling teen next to me.

Next is the creamy beige satin trench that I wore when we were shopping for house lights. It has mixed well with the wooden lamp and my Chanel medallion tote.

My baby's shy smile is the highlight of this photo, don't you agree?

Third is the purple coat which blended well in the lavender patch. While there are trench coats that look good unfastened, there are some that have to be closed off, otherwise, it will drop, flinging everywhere resembling to an opened raincoat just like this purple one.

And to give a waist to the trench is to buckle it or tie the belt in front and that accounts for a lot of the charm of the coat. Here is the leopard print number I wore on my brother-n-law's wedding ceremony by the Sydney harbour. I can't describe how cold and breezy that day but it was just brrrr!!!

Warm smiles from the boys (who were a bit younger in this pic, Jace the baby wasn't born yet :-)) on a cold day under the Harbour Bridge.

Buckle up with this red trench that I wore indoors, I have no more boys to pose with so this is a solo flight.

This shows the older the kids get the less smiling they become so a word to mothers out there to take photos with them while they are still cheerful and less moody. Well, I'm learning it now.
