Signs of spring

Things are finally starting to look and feel like spring. The sunny days are peppered with rainy ones, but this week has felt like a huge turning point in the weather. No longer are we trending below average!

While I can be a bit a wimp when it comes to taking photos in the rain, it was barely misting, and the center of New Canaan, CT is too pretty to not take photos in, rain or shine.

  13. I love that your last two outfits feature classic and neutral colors, patterns and styles such as dark blue denim, black jeans, camel blazer/coat, stripes, chambray and leopard. Love these two last outfits and I have worn similar versions of them, myself.

    Have a great weekend, Lydia!

  14. Those jeans look like they fit you like a dream! I love the subtle nod to nautical in this outfit, too. Those bracelets are adorable!

  15. Yay! No more snow :) I love your striped top and anchor bracelet!

  16. I don't think a spring outfit gets any better than a striped top with a trench coat :)

  17. That looks like the perfect striped shirt, it is adorable!

  18. Love the trench! I am on the hunt for one right now. Our days here in OK have been so funny. One day it will be hot and the next chilly and rainy.

  20. I hope I get to see New Canaan in person one day - I've read a fair bit about it and then seeing it in your photos, I can always tell that it lives up to the hype. And what a perfect classic look for walking around in such a charming place. You've reminded me of that fact that I still need to add a good classic trench coat to my wardrobe. And a vintage Coach bag, too!

  21. Yay!! So glad it is starting to feel like Spring!! So in love with that trench! It looks perfect with the stripes and those pretty necklaces!
