This coat reminds me of the clothes I used to wear in kindergarten which is pretty much always a positive connotation. I mean, yes, my style inspiration should probably not be six-year-old-me (and technically it isn't), but I remember loving so many multi-colored outfits as a kid and dresses my mother made me--there's even a striped dress I remember that had a little puppet brooch of a girl with yellow braids that worked as both an accessory and toy. When I think about childhood clothes it's not just about the styles themselves, but how fun it was to get dressed and wear the same thing day after day because you liked it so much.
