Spring: Lilac and Check

LILACCHECK2 The sun was shining so I pulled on a dress only to be blown back indoors by an icy wind to rethink my outfit for the day. Spring!LILACCHECK3Cold enough morning to reach for the Vince coat and think about brogues instead of the tan leather slippers.LILACCHECK4I’m hoping by afternoon it will be warm enough to shed the coat. The cotton jumper is old by Zara Girls. Lined wool check trousers are J Crew also here that I shortened by several inches whilst retaining the turn up. The little gavroche match again! LILACCHECKCLOSEThere – can you see the ingenius poppers on the coat? Normally a very cheap and cheerful fastening method but here they are pretty neat and look like disc batteries. Very neat.

Thanks for reading!

    Sounds like your weather is like ours has been. It’s still chilly here, but often warms up in the day so that coats can be shed! You look quite spiffy, and casually polished as usual. Pretty, the lilac with the warm and cool neutrals. And your scarf is evocative … Grace Kelly, of course! Elegant you!

      Thanks so much dear Jan! The little scarf has the perfect weight so that it stays perky tied like this. I love wool trousers like these borrowing the style from the men – they have it so easy – though I know it looks like I might be missing a golf club lol! 🙂
