I Was Hoping to Start Wearing My New Spring Clothes

I was hoping to start wearing my new spring clothes.  But no! There was snow last week, frigid temperatures over the weekend and this week there is a threat of a Nor’Easter.  What’s a girl to do? Well, dress appropriately.

My version of a sensible winter outfit includes trying to adapt to monochromatic dressing with boots all the while the winds are blowing, and the temperature is below freezing, hovering around 25°.  The winter that won’t quit.

I Was Hoping to Wear My New Spring Clothes. Wearing: ASOS Oversized Swing Coat with Kimono Sleeve similar here, J. Crew Wool Camel Dress similar here, Cole Haan Barnard StormCloud Gray Suede Boots and Quay Australia Every Little Thing Cat-eye Sunglasses with Pink Lens.

Camel is my one-tone choice. I’m wearing my ASOS oversized swing coat with kimono sleeve, a J.Crew camel wool dress, and last season’s Cole Haan Pewter Suede Boots.

Below are the 2017 spring trends I’m excited to buy to wear once the weather breaks (save for the frayed jeans and bomber jacket):

Monochromatic Dressing:
I’m dressed in a monochromatic look is a great styling trick that is timeless and elegant.  It’s also a fabulous styling trick to make one appear leaner and taller while hiding flaws and problem areas.  However, a one-tone color outfit not only refers to head-to-toe black or white, but there are also other flattering colors to consider.

    I have that exact floral maxi chiffon dress and I love it. The dress drapes wonderfully and is very lady like. Spring will be here soon.;-)
