when spring arrives (and it will) everyone is ready to pull out their special duds and celebrate. not only do we kiss old man winter buh-bye but this is the season that ushers in graduations, tea parties, bridal and baby showers, easter, mother’s day, or just plain old sunday brunch. there’s no more contending with unpredictable cold weather or snowstorms. only blues skies, okay throw in a grey one now and then, and mild weather. that’s reason alone to get our party game on!
of course, dresses are a favorite of mine come easter sunday. but it’s nice to have separates on hand to mix and match all through spring into summer. and what’s not to love about a springtime color palette? soft pinks, vibrant greens, robin’s egg blue, buttery yellows all sound delightful this time of year as we watch nature burst into bloom.
today’s ootd is all about spring special occasion dressing. easter is only three weeks away! so out came a favorite three-quarter length coat that mr. style refers to as my lab coat. ha ha! it’s hard to see from the photos, but it has a lovely texture and hidden pockets. and we all know white goes with everything. Boden carries a similar coat this year that i discovered when ordering these adorable pink and green pants. i will mention the pants run small so size up. but the fabric has a hint of stretch, so it’s a comfortable fit. the blouse is also from Boden and comes in several colors and gingham! it’s adorable with buttons down the back and is 100% linen. several of you have asked about the Boden fit. it runs true to size. i typically wear a size 6-8 at J.Crew or Talbots, and a size 8 at Boden fits perfectly. but it is a slimmer fit. i hope this helps!
it’s a new week, gang, let’s make it a good one!
