Hello Lovelies!I am standing vigil at the gate, it appears. This breezy Wednesday found me in lightweight, neutral colors, with red flats for a splash of color. My polka dot trench gives me refuge from the wind.
Like you, I am waiting for Spring. ( Okay like many of you; I am worried about you in California where it is already almost 100 degrees). It is simply not yet here. We get a tease of sunshine and then a blast of wind. A fellow blogger phrased it aptly: bipolar weather.
I am wearing my customary layers, which is comfortable in this weather. I thrifted my paisley silk skirt, it is by Etro, one of my favorite designers, and one of whom I have actually paid full retail price for in the past. Considering my luck that day I donated that day to various charities. I am pretty civic-minded, but when I bought that skirt I did feel compelled to pay it forward. (Especially, as there is a homeless person who resides on the corner of where I bought this.) A good and necessary reminder of how fortunate we are, and to not take anything for granted.
I am not normally a polka dot person, but this polka dot trench got to me. The sumptuous silk twill enticed me, and it is odd, because I am not really sure how it would hold up to rain, but it is a perfect layer for this 55 degree day.
