I’m still waiting for that nice spring weather. We got a little glimpse of it in the middle of last week, but then temperatures dropped back down. On Sunday I met up with a friend and I was underdressed (in terms of warmth). It was so windy/chilly that I had to run back to my apartment to grab a hat, scarf, and gloves!
Originally we’d planned to meet on Saturday, but it was so gross and rainy all day that we pushed our plans to Sunday. We had brunch at Mighty Quinn’s and it was quite tasty. Then we walked over to Sephora so that I could buy her birthday present. She’s talked about wanting to find a red lipstick that suits her, so I told her that we’d go to Sephora and find her perfect shade, which I’d then buy for her. Our trip was a success and she picked out a great lipstick from Kat Von D’s line. We browsed in a couple more stores in the area, but soon we started to get tired from our hearty meal earlier.
I just got this floral tee from Aeropostale and it’s so soft. It’s the perfect slouchy weekend tee. I know I’ll be wearing it again soon (hopefully without a coat next time!).

One of my many goals this year is to take a trip somewhere, preferably somewhere I have to get to by plane. After finishing my most recent read, Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum (more on that book later in the month), one European country jumped to the top of my “I Want to Go to There” list. That country is Switerzland! The main character in the book, Anna, is an expat living in Switzerland. When she’s not happy with her life, she takes solace in her surroundings. The way that the city center and the nearby towns are described has me convinced that I’d find Switzerland very charming. Have you ever been?
I’m on the hunt for a new spring jacket. I was trying to decide on a silhouette and I noticed the drapey trench popping up everywhere. I like this twist on the classic trench coat. They’re usually made of a lightweight material and I think they give outfits a relaxed polish. As you can see above, stores are carrying them in pretty, light colors that are perfect for spring. I’ve definitely decided that I want a colored coat and I’m leaning towards a blush/pink coat, grey, or perhaps light blue. I may still end up going for a more structured coat, like this pretty pink coat that I have my eye on. What do you think of the drapey trench?
