Winter to Spring Transitional Dressing

I have hope. The temps are supposed to be above 40° F all this coming week, and a couple of days we will even hit the 50°s! Do you know what that means? That means the snow will melt! It will be a wet, muddy mess, but the Godforsaken snow will be gone. YAY! Now, I’m not naive enough to think we are out of the woods yet… This is Michigan after all. It’s not totally uncommon for us to get a snow storm in April. However, I have hope and hope is a good thing to have. Am I right?

I find the winter/spring transition period very difficult to dress for. It’s still cold, but I flat out refuse to wear wool skirts, thick sweaters and tall boots in March. So, I try to layer the best I can and bare my lily-white ankles in defiance. TAKE THAT MOTHER NATURE. I’LL SHOW YOU!

Oh, and let’s talk about the elephant in the room, shall we? I failed my 100 day no spend challenge. I made it to the end of February and then said “screw it” and went shopping. Yes, I am a failure. I’m too picky to let items that I love pass me by. So, yeah… I’m done with that.

Thanks so much for stopping by and stay classy, my friends!

  1. Ha ha! you so crack me up. I was thinking that was a tough promise to keep. When it is winter for umm…yeah…FOREVER what does one have to do to avoid jumping off a building in desperation? Shop. I think you made the right choice. ; ) It was 8 C here yesterday! I almost put on my bikini! Now if this 2 ft of snow would disappear I’d also have hope.

    Carry on being fabulous woman!

  2. I know it’s March in Michigan and anything can (and will) happen, but please let this break in weather stay! I really enjoyed eating lunch outside today and bearing my ankles.

    I really, really love that bag. I think it might be time I give Coach another look!

  3. Ha ha. When I first read this, I thought you were cursing Mother F*$^er instead of Mother Nature. I had to do a double take. A lot of our snow melted today and yesterday. YAY! And don’t feel bad about breaking down and buying. I have no will power for anything (shopping, wine, chocolate…)

  4. Wow I bet you guys do get a lot of snow! I, however, am jealous of any and all snow and would love to get a little here (it never snows in rome!). Love the trench!

  5. You look great Ashley. I adore that Marsala Sweater paired with the B+W Gingham Shirt. And that trench coat is lovely. I love Marsala and I am doing an entire week of outfits with that color this week.

    Take Care, Ada. =)

  6. Love the marsala sweater and gingham mix! I’m glad to hear it is warming up a bit for you. Good for you for at least attempting to go 100 days without shopping. I am not nearly that brave.

Comments are fun! I love reading and responding to them.
