Only The Essentials

Happy Monday all!

For transitional seasons like Spring, I keep my outerwear choices simple since I only have a limited window to wear them.  Honestly, a trench coat and denim jacket are pretty much all I  wear during the season.  They’re easily interchangeable and go with everything in my closet.  On a chilly morning, I layer a sweater underneath to keep me warm.  While I endorse the trench and denim jacket,  a rain coat is essential especially during  those rainy April days.  Also a good  rain coat can  be a great substitution for a trench.  This way you’re killing two birds with one stone!

What are your favorite coats/jackets for Spring?

Have a wonderful day!

    Love the black and white outfit with the classy pop-of-color red shoes. Gorgeous! You have a great sense of color, very creative. Ever thought of a job in graphic design? ; )

    I’m loving all the knit blazers that are available now. I’m top heavy and for years, many years, I have not been able to wear a nice blazer. The last time I could wear somewhat of a blazer was back in the 80’s when jackets were big and loose and had quarterback shoulder pads in them!

    This is a great tip about coats for spring — I really struggle with outerwear (year round, but that’s another story), so the idea of having two or three basic coats is awesome!
