Drew & Liz....Heathwood Circle

A reader sent me this photograph from her phone, thinking I would enjoy seeing daughter and mother, both wearing a variation on the trench coat--and I am most grateful for the submission! The original trench coat, as I'm sure you know, was created by Thomas Burberry (a rather dour teetotaler, I've been told) for officers to wear during the Great War (one of the few great things about it, if one asks me).

In the decades since, the trench coat has morphed considerably and become quite the fashion item. I love both cheery interpretations you see above. It helps, of course, that this mother-daughter duo is darling. And my goodness, such glorious hair they have.
