Oh Polly Don’t Go Chasin’ Waterfalls Longline Lapel Coat in Lilac

I’m sure you guys are tired of hearing it, because I’m tired of saying it: where the heck is Spring?!? As of the time I’m writing this blog, it’s cold outside and angry thick gray clouds are threatening to release rain at any moment. I’ve heard of the saying “April Showers bring May flowers”, but this rain feels more like the plant killing rather than the plant generating kind. There are days I feel like being really stubborn and wear my spring clothes anyway. But predictably, it’s a decision I soon regret and I end up cabbing it most of the day because I’m too cold to walk around.

So how’s a girl supposed to keep the spirit of Spring when she’s forced to wear her winter gear for the foreseeable future? I’m doing it by bringing Spring colors to my outfit repertoire. I’m not typically one to go for a whole lot of pink, but I just feel like my life is needing that dose of Spring pastel. So I figured, what the heck, let’s go all out and do blush pink outfit.

The pieces that make up my outfit are actually great transition clothing items as well, not only just in its color but also in utility. The Oh Polly longline lapel coat is just the right thickness to protect you from the schizophrenic Winter/Spring breeze without the risk of overheating. The Wet Seal faux suede pencil skirt has become one of my favorites because it’s very bump friendly. I can just easily hike it up over my belly and it’s mega comfortable. You’ve probably seen this skirt plenty of times on my Instagram and I predict there will be more sightings of it in the future.

    I am loving blush this season, and that skirt is so pretty! I swear it’s been raining more than sunshine and I’m getting tired of it too! Hopefully, if we all wear Spring things it’ll just show up!
