Oh April, why are you so glum? Just a grey, wet, mess of a month you are! There’s pretty much only two things to get us through this limbo, and it’s the prospect of long summer days on the horizon and cute gear to help us through the New England downpours. That’s when the classic trench coat comes in. (*oh, and flowers – we’re cool with April showers if it brings May flowers)
If you can’t tell, this season we’re kind of very into neutrals — specifically greys and blacks. It’s just so easy to match them, and when they’re all a great texture, you can look really pulled together. This little number is especially awesome, because it involves stretchy pants and sneakers — two staples for weekend daytime wear. And because these leggings are coated, with a quick change of the shoes you have your Saturday dinner outfit all ready to go. This wool-blend coat will keep you warm from the winter chill, and the beaded-tassel necklace keeps you on trend.
Temps are still in the teens here in New England, but if things ever warm up a bit, I’d love to take a break from my snow boots and throw on some sneakers for a casual-cool look. I don’t think I could ever be as brave as these chicks and not wear socks, but I’d definitely throw on a patterned pair of cotton ones to make it winter appropriate.
Since Christa’s going to Italy in a few months, she mentioned that she’ll be stealing some of these looks so that she can be cute and comfortable while walking around. Here are some inexpensive styles she can choose from:
