I had almost made it through all of winter without wearing this duster coatÂ that I had picked up last year. Too light to wear in the thick of winter and too heavy to wear when spring actually starts peeping it’s head out there’s only a small window where it actually makes sense.
That small window finally came around this week! It’s chilly in the mornings but warming up at night and I think it’s safe to say that we’re out of the (winter) woods.Â This dress was like the unicorn that I couldnâ€™t find. Have you ever had you heart set on something specific and no matter how hard you look, store after store, you absolutely cannot find what youâ€™re looking for? Itâ€™s the worst.
Last November we were heading out to Marthaâ€™s Vineyard for MGâ€™s birthday celebration and because it was so cold, I really wanted to wear a long-sleeved dress with over the knee boots. No lie, I went to 15 stores looking for said dress and came up empty.
Sure enough, we came back from the trip and the next week I saw this dress online. It was exactly what I had wanted â€“ a flirty skirt, an easy print, and a slight boho feel to it. Usually when I think of boho I think of short shorts, Coachella, and more skin showing, so I wanted to try and give it a shot in the winter to break up the monotony of the all back ensembles Iâ€™ve been rocking to work.
These boots were by far my favorite purchase in the last 6 months and the cognac suede color were the perfect fit forÂ a transitional look. How do you make the transition between winter and spring?
