Chicago has been so kind as to hand us a few 50 degree days so far, so i've been able to start transitioning into spring styles and pairings. as i'm writing this, there's a winter storm on it's way to drop off a few inches of snow (arghhh), so i'm still tapping into my winter wardrobe these days.
i found this jacket/outerwear piece a couple weeks ago and just had to have it, even though i may not be able to wear it much until next fall. it's the perfect piece that can be worn in so many different ways: pair it with a feminine dress for a funky feel, add it over a graphic tee for a polished look, or simply wear it with a classic white tee and jeans for an effortlessly chic outfit. this is one of those pieces that is a staple and i'm glad to finally have one. (it also wrinkles fairly easily, i see. interestingly, i steamed that sucker just before shooting...it may be a 2 or 3 time steam job in the future).
signing off now, as i continue to binge-watch Revenge from the comforts of my bed. the cats are asleep by my feet, tissues are in abundance beside me, and warm tea is in my hand. this cold better be the last one i meet for a long, long time...
