Yes, somehow Monday snuck up on us again. I hope you all had the opportunity to enjoy the weekend. We certainly did and for the first time in what seems like forever, our weather cooperated as well giving us the ‘spring preview’ we have been craving for so long. Of course, despite the gorgeous weather this weekend and the promise of more to come this week, I have sneaky feeling that winter might have a little more in store for us in my neck of the woods. As soon as we become used to the warmer temperatures, BAM, we get socked with what is affectionately called by the locals as ‘spring snow.’ We have lived here almost 7 years now and I still cannot get used to snow in April! I mean, honestly, what is up with that?
Weather aside, my other focus for the upcoming season is adding to my wardrobe and what better way to do that than with some pieces that are wearable right now, in spring and then again in early fall. Take the colored suede skirt (fall trend alert!) from H&M I have chosen above. It makes a great outfit for work right now when paired with a blouse and cropped blazer, then lose the blazer come spring, add an adorable short sleeve sweater and you have yet another stylish look for work or play. Come fall, top it off with a cozy sweater and add knee high boots and you will be ready for those cool, crisp days in style.
I have also chosen some of my favorite items from the new arrivals at H&M shown above. Remember, Monday is easier to handle when shopping is involved.
