Winter's Spell is Broken!








Okay, the snow has pretty much entirely melted here and now my slowness at formatting/posting my photos is laid bare to all of you. But that’s okay, because I can honestly say that this is the last post of me wearing this winter jacket because spring has sprung people!!!! Anyhoo, I was going for a military-theme here (see with the cut of the coat and the army boots), with a little pop of cutesy and color interjected (my little birdie purse). But really, who cares? Because (did I mention this already?), this is it people – spring is here!!!! So let’s collectively bid adieu to the shackles of frost and ice that bind us during those long and sunless months and celebrate the change in weather together.

In more weather appropriate news, I saw this Topshop dress on Brunch at Saks and I am officially obsessed with this little number. What do you think?

I like the Topshop dress. It will look lovely with a little blazer with pushed up sleeves x

LOVING that Topshop dress.
The snow here is completely gone, as well, but the temperatures are still pretty cold. This has been such strange weather this year.
Your outfit is super cute. You really know how to rock the military theme.
P.S. Obsessed with your boots.
(I accidentally typed "boobs." I was tempted to leave it.)

wait... did I miss something? Because it is 38° and raining here and I'm only 15 mins away from New Haven.
But I do seriously wish it were spring, I'd love put my winter coats away!

Love the bird purse, adorable.

Those boots are fantastic! I so badly wanted a pair of knee high combat boots at the beginning of the fall and just never got them :( So I'm really jealous of you right now.

I love the bird purse and the Topshop dress rocks!

YAAAAY goodbye Winter!!! it's definitively gone here in southern Spain, and as I have all of my lighter clothes in boxes at my mum's while I move I'm walkin around in very useless uber-warm sweaters and chunky shoes :S

Love that coat you are wearing, military-styled jackets and coats are another weakenss of mine ;)

Michelle said...

I think I'm obsessed with that dress now too! It's adorable! I think I can recreate it with a skirt and shirt I already own. :)
