Last Look at Winter

IMG_2867Guess how we got fooled on April 1st? A foot of snow. Truth be told, it was looking pretty magical and probably our last such wintery landscape. By Sunday, the sun was shining and temps had gone up into the mid 40s. No gloves! So as much as I’m looking forward to sporting some new Spring fashion, I pulled out some warm weather gear one last time.

Mud season is coming! You can never have too many cashmere sweaters as far as I’m concerned, plus this cozy colorblock turtleneck eliminated the need for a scarf. Embroidered and decorated denim has been a strong trend for awhile now. It’s a fun, chic way to elevate such an everyday item. If it’s already warmed up where you are, I still think these are good wardrobe additions to snag now (often on sale!) and save for Fall.

Coming soon…the first of Spring 2017 looks!

Jacket: (old, Barbour) but find it here and a nice lighter weight option here. (On sale with code MOREISMORE and comes in regular, tall and petite too.)

Sweater: (old, Vince) but similar here and here (bargain!)

Hat: (old, Woolrich) but multiple choices here

Jeans: (old) but love these and these

Boots: (old, Hunter) but loving them in matte navy

  1. Life’s a Spritz — what’s your advice as to best mothball protection for cashmere?!
    eek – hate the camphor but hate the holes.
    seems my cedar sachet blocks must have lost thier ‘cedar’

  2. I have not seen so much snow in such a long, long time 😮
    My sister (in the Boston area) is iced-in.
    And here I am in hot pants already … wow!
    Love the pic of you and Bowie, MP!
    He be sayin “Mom, you photo-bombing me with that hat!”

    BTW: mint leaves and peppermint oil, too, are quite good for moth-proofing!
