Stripes and trench

I wore this outfit three weeks ago. I have no idea why it kept getting past up for posts, but at least I'm thankful for having a bit of a photo backlog which was non-existent month ago. It's great because the first week of May felt an awful lot more like the first week of March, and this trench was on repeat. With no sign of the sun, I quickly slipped back into my winter uniform of jeans and sweaters, but I would definitely appreciate the return of spring.

This weekend I'm looking forward to brunching with my Mom, and who knows, maybe even getting around to that closet clean out. Haha, good one.

  1. Oh, the closet cleanup. I just did another one this week, and am totally baffled - I feel like I have nothing to wear and yet, every three months, while only buying a few items per month, I manage to fill another duffle bag full of clothes to get rid of. But I see say that seeing all the empty hangers is very satisfying...! That said, spending this weekend going to brunch and enjoying time with your mom sounds like way more fun :) And even if the weather isn't amazing, at least you have a fabulous trench to wear!

  2. Ahhhh memories of no rain! Ha ha. We seriously need to go back to nice weather!

  3. What I would give for a back log of blog pictures! Love how a good trench just works to easily! My co-worker has been talking non-stop about her closet clean out that I might just do it too!
