I’ve never been much for transitions.
Whether it’s the transition from one stage or life to another—see college to the ‘real world’—or the transition between the seasons, I dislike the lack of predictability.
For instance, I took these pictures a few weeks ago a few days after it snowed. It was absolutely freezing and the wind needed to ‘do less’ as the kids say these days.
The following day?
A balmy 65 with not a gust of wind in sight. Go figure.
So until the weather is a predictable 70—and hopefully sunny—I’ll be living in this red toggle coat.
In stark contrast to my dark winter wear, this bright outwear is the perfect pop of color for spring. Even if it is only 50 outside.
It’s heavy enough that it keeps me warm enough on those crisp mornings, but lightweight enough I won’t be sweating if I choose to wear it as a fashion statement during the lunch hour.
Yet as perfect as it is, here’s to hoping this is the last time it makes an appearance in outfit pictures until fall.
Or, at least with no snow on the ground.
