Think Spring.

Burberry Trench Coat

Sometimes I do crazy things, in the name of this blog. Today, it was pretending that it is actually nice out to show you some of my favorite things for Spring in the form of a simple, black + white look. These are some of the things you need. A great trench coat, an elegant top {I love this A.L.C. one – check out the back!} and duh… sandals. I had my eye on this pair by DVF from Nordstrom for a while before I took the plunge – and like a crazy lady I bought them because I was worried they’d sell out by the time I can finally wear them. So they’re sitting at home, proudly displayed… waiting for warmer days.

    Nothing is worse than having an item sell out before you get your hands on it. I’m glad you were able to pick up the DVF wedges. They’re gorgeous!

    Love your Mansur Gravriel bucket bag! I have been thinking about getting one for a while, but I was worried about the size, so it is great to see you wearing it. It looks so great, might have to move it to the top of my wishlist!

    I absolutely love the classic trench, and those sandals are perfection, roll on the sunny weather in England so I can step my feet into anything other boots.
