Spring Capsule # 1 : Jeans and a trenchcoat
Confession: I did intend this outfit to be pulled together from my spring capsule wardrobe, but I took the photos before I wrote the post, and I totally forgot to add this sweater to it: whoops!
I guess this at least illustrates why I don’t have a “proper” capsule wardrobe, huh? Let’s pretend that’s why I did it. Let’s also pretend the weather was every bit as spring-like as it looks in these photos, and that it didn’t actually start SNOWING while we were taking them. Yes, SNOWING: I kid you not. Before you go rolling your eyes at me for being out in the snow in those shoes and a thin trench coat, though, let me just sat that it was only a couple of flakes and they came – literally – out of a clear blue sky. I mean, OK, the previous day we’d had snow for almost the entire day (and not just a few flakes of it, either), but it was all gone by morning, and, I dunno, I just thought it was maybe winter’s last blast, or something? So I looked at the blue sky, threw on my trench coat and pumps, and out I went… into MORE SNOW. And then I literally died.
Anyway, I was relieved to see the daffodils had survived the cold snap (Er, can you even call it a “cold snap” when it’s cold all the time?), because at least they make it LOOK like Spring, even it doesn’t really feel like it yet. Thankfully it DID warm up later in the week, and … wait, what am I, the weatherman or something? Because I’m starting to sound like one of those people on Facebook, aren’t I? You know, the ones who post a status update telling everyone it’s raining (just in case the rest of us don’t have windows in our houses, and can’t see the rain for ourselves, I guess?), and then 50 people all comment with stuff like, “Raining here, too!”, “No rain here!” or “It was raining here earlier, but it seems to have stopped now!” And I’m just like, “What a story, tell me more!” Then I go and write a blog post doing exactly the same thing, because British people: we just can’t help ourselves, can we?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
