The Net-a-Porter sale has landed. And this is how I feel about it.
I don’t know about you but I’m growing quite sick of these grey rainy days. But when it’s spring time in Chicago, what do you expect? Actual spring weather with flowers blooming and people frolicking in the streets? We get that maybe a few days each spring…the lucky 48 hours of 70s and sun we might get to experience. But right now I’m staring out my window, wondering what I’m going to sacrifice today (meaning allow to get wet)…which inspired me to write today’s post.
Why oh why would we wear a coat and not even bother to put it all the way on? Silly fashion people, coats are for warmth! But are they always? Let’s take a look.
You guys…I think we made it. According to the ten day forecast, it looks like we can put away our puffer coats (although I don’t think they’re all that bad) and opt for something a bit lighter. I’m not saying it’s t-shirt / leather jacket time just yet, but I’m feeling optimistic here (which is rare for me this early in the year). If you’re excited to lighten up (whether by color or by weight of your outerwear), then you’re going to enjoy this.
In Chicago, we’re quite practical in the way we dress…considering we’re freezing our asses off a majority of the year. Our uniform often consists of puffer coats, typically not my jam, but there’s someone out there who may have just changed my mind about them…
