Wishing For Spring.

My favorite way to channel warm weather vibes right now is with a bright coat and a tropical pair of earrings. Practical but still warm!

Happy Monday friends! We head home from Cartagena today. I’m sad to leave but also excited to get back (weather permitting – I hear there’s another snow storm hitting the city tonight… womp.) This has been such an amazing trip. We did so much and I cannot wait to share it all with you in a fun city guide (hopefully next week)! I hope you guys had a great weekend.

Soooo… it’s a little late in the year to be buying a new coat, no? Yeah yeah yeah I know but it’s still really cold – and it’s my FAVORITE color, and it’s a great price. So yeah I bought and if you love emerald green as much as I do, you should too! (Or if you have Spring on the brain, buy this one. It’s equally fabulous and very well priced!)

Bright coat + fun, fruity earrings = the perfect antidote to the winter blues. Now is the time that I start breaking out my brights… hoping that the warm weather will follow! Fingers crossed.

Outfit Details: ASOS Coat // J.Crew Bodysuit (fits true to size and good on long torsos… wearing a 6) // Paige Jeans // J.Crew Belt (like ten years old but this is veryyyy similar and also awesome) // Cuero & Mor Purse // Manolo Blahnik Pumps (less sensible, but still comfortable)  // Polaroid Sunglasses // Holst + Lee Earrings (so so fun and tropical!)

Every blogger is talking about bodysuits right now and for good reason. They make getting dressed so easy! My shirts always come untucked and this one looks like a pretty blouse – it just happens to also be a bodysuit. I also have and LOVE this wrap bodysuit – it’s so comfortable and flattering!!!

    I’m soooo hoping that Spring will come to my town asap. I’m totally done with the Winter layers, snow, cold and all of that. 😀
    You are looking beautiful and elegant in this outfit! I love how you style all of your outfits.
