Spring Fever

I know that spring finally arrived on Monday, but so far Chicago is behind on the time, you guys.   It’s supposed to warm up this weekend (and hopefully stay that way from here on out), so that means bringing out all of the light layers!

As you guys know, I’ve been obsessed with coats all winter long, and my love for them isn’t slowing down anytime soon! I had been wanting a longline coat for the longest, so when I saw this navy duster coat at Zara – and on sale – I just had to have it! Blue is one of my favorite colors, and the dark navy seriously goes with everything. I’ve worn it with black and blue jeans, and have been patiently waiting to pull it out with my white denim!

I love that it’s not too heavy but not too light, and can be worn during this crazy transitional weather. I mean, it went from 80 degrees at noon to 45 degrees on Friday in a matter of 5 hours… seriously. I also like to think that it’s the perfect length and makes my short stature look a liiiitle bit longer. Gotta get that extra height wherever you can!

Something I’ve noticed is that I’ve been stocking up on more classic pieces versus those trendy pieces that can be worn for only season. Along with this navy duster coat, I scooped up this amazing Ralph Lauren camel coat. I had been eyeing it for months, and on a road trip two weeks back, I randomly saw my size in stock and ordered it right there in the car! The good thing is that I’ll be getting a ton of use out this coat, and can’t wait to keep wearing it!
