Like a grown woman

Whenever I wear trench coats, I feel like a "real" grown woman. There's something about the cut and shape that make me feel so mature and very ladylike - much more than heels do. Then I imagine myself going off to somewhere like New York or Paris, where a trench would be more suitable as a daily staple. I've had this trench in my closet for ages and only wore it a few times, just twice this year. Today, I decided to dress-up a little bit so I finally took it out. Same goes for this pair of oxford heels. I don't remember if I've ever shown these here at all in the past but they have been sitting in my shoe closet for so so long. I only remembered to bring them out the first day of my internship - when I needed a formal looking black pair of heels. 
Speaking of internship - it hasn't changed. But I decided that I won't complain anymore because there isn't really anything I can do. On the positive side, the work is not tiring. The more negative side is that if boredom could kill, I'd probably be dead already. I'm thinking of simple ways I can entertain myself while at work - nothing iPhone or internet related. Any suggestions? haha...

Cheers, Carla
