Can you believe it’s already spring??
Maybe it’s because I was visiting the world’s official home of Santa Claus up in the arctic circle of Finland on the first day of spring (more on that to come!) but I’m still in shock that Easter is less than a month away and that soon all of Chicago will be in bloom.
(Be sure to check out my post on my 3 Favorite Places to Shoot Spring Blooms for this spring — it’s one of my absolute favorite times of year to shoot.
One piece I can’t wait to wear, remix, revamp, and wear time and time again is this gorgeous pink duster coat.
First of all, it’s $25! And while the fabric of this coat certainly isn’t silk, it genuinely feels like one of those pieces that most stores would charge at least $50 for. I’m looking at YOU Forever 21…
Secondly, it’s a spring wardrobe maker. The charming blush tone, mid-weight fabric, and long length make it perfect for all the crazy transitional weather we’re bound to encounter this spring. And works with so many different type of looks (I’ve actually already shot TWO looks with this piece already with more to come!).
And thirdly it’s ridiculously flattering. The easy wrap silhouette compliments so many different body types (and would even be great for expectant mothers!). It’ll easy be one of the easiest pieces to style in your wardrobe.
