Blazer:  Club Monaco

It probably wasn’t the best idea to photograph an already bright outfit in full sun.  Live an learn.

I hope you have a wonderful long weekend.  The dogs and I will be (hopefully) spending some quality time outside getting the gardens ready for planting :)

Coat:  Vintage
Scarf:  Dynamite
Sweater:  J.Crew cashmere cardigan
Blouse:  found at Winners
Pants:  J.Crew Full-length Minnie in bi-stretch wool {really liking these pants!  I also bought them in burgundy during J.Crew’s last sale blowout :) I already have a pair of the Minnie’s in twill, but they are not my favorite (because of the fabric).  The bi-stretch wool version is far better!}
Purse:  Vintage
Shoes:  Pour la Victoire Carmendy {also here}

Is anyone else sick of winter?  I don’t normally complain about the seasons, but this winter is just dragging on and on… 
I know I’ve said it before, but wearing color really helps my break out of my winter funk…even if only for a short while.  For today’s look, I took a chance on pairing dark olive pants {thanks Wikipedia for help classifying this color!} with my vintage teal coat.  And I have to say, I am quite happy with the result!
