thoughts of spring.

I have been getting the most emails lately about what to wear for spring. And believe you me, there is nothing I am more excited for than spring. But with temps still at or below freezing in these parts, I can't yet in good conscience start suggesting a lot of spring wear. It's just too much of a tease!

(However, I will have so pre-spring stuff happening around spring break... for all you "break-ers" heading to warmer temps for a vacay!)

I am making one exception today, though, for a trend I can't help but noticing popping up in all the stores - ANORAKS. Plus, this look is great for transitional wear from winter to spring. These anoraks are casual and high on style and great for layering over a sweater or pairing with a scarf to keep you warm until the temps start to rise for good. (click pictures for shopping details)

Forever 21, $36.90

Gap, $59.50

Kenneth Cole, $98


ps. my computer decided to call it quits yesterday. The gut wrenches and heart palpitations haven't quit yet. I am using my husband's laptop before he wisks it off to work with him for now. If posting is light for the next few that's why... all my apologies!

I like the look of the first one best, wish I could see it on someone! You should buy it and model it for us!

I was totally thinking about these the other day. Love them paired with sparkly or dressy things!
