Spring Tease

I constantly remind myself to enjoy all the good I have in my life right now.

It was one of those strange spring weekends smack dab in the middle of February. Last Sunday I took photos during a snowstorm, yesterday I traded my boots for ballet flats and my heavy wool coat for this light striped trench that Cabi surprised me with.

I always find the mentality of the warm winter day a bit comical, to look around you might think it were August - women wearing sundresses and sandals with no coat, every convertible in town driving around, and the line at Milkcraft wrapped around the building, even after sunset - save for the fact that the ground is covered in snow.

Naturally I took a more practical approach, longsleeve silk blouse, knit skirt (another fall purchase getting its very first wear), light jacket, and even tights!

I won't deny that a little part of me did want to get ice cream, but I can wait. Spring is coming.

  2. LOVE this coat and all the scallops! It was so nice this weekend, but definitely not convertible weather. I guess people got overly excited on the first warm days :)

  3. When I lived somewhere colder, I always had a laugh on the first day of spring-like weather when people would put their shorts and t-shirts on, even though it was only about ten degree celsius. I do know it's easy to get excited about warm weather after a long, snowy winter, but personally, I'd rather take a page from your book and wear a trench with ballet flats than a sundress in February!

  6. I adore that jacket - it sort of screams "spring" to me too (not sure why, the stripes just seem so lighthearted and fun). The weather in my area has been very weird lately - one day it's -20 and then a few days later it's been +5.

  9. That coat is gorgeous and perfect for spring! I tend to be a bit more cautious with my clothing when the weather warms up too. You've found the perfect balance between taking advantage of the warmer weather while still being practical!
