I didn’t grow up on the water, nor did I spend my holidays sailing the high seas. But every winter season, I feel this innate urge to go nautical with all my pre-spring purchases. A recent example — last night, I arrived a few minutes early for a meeting and found myself coincidentally passing by the brightly lit windows of the Ann Taylor Loft near Grand Central. This coat was all I could see — that and the sign crying, “25% off your entire purchase!” I went in, fell in love (did you see the cute ruffles at the neckline?) and decided to invest. New coat for spring? Check!
