Tigers, Gingham and Spring Showers

The weather here has been unseasonably cool and rainy and I definitely have some mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I'm getting a little bit sick of all of the rain and grey skies. Also, with it being a couple weeks until school lets out and summer vacation begins, I am ready for it to start feeling like summer! On the other hand, I'm not sure I'm quite ready for sweating it out in 90 degree heat (I'll probably complain about that too!), so maybe I should savor these cool days while they last? Another upside to the dreary, cool weather is that a couple weeks ago I placed an order for some sale steals at J. Crew like cashmere sweaters and this gingham trench coat, so this cool weather gives me an opportunity to wear these pieces and enjoy them before storing them away for next year. I guess there is a silver lining to every cloud, even storm clouds!

I decided to pair my new gingham trench coat with this silk tiger print blouse, which was also part of my sale haul from a couple of weeks ago! I love how everything this spring at J. Crew ended up being a perfect match in terms of color, which really has made for some fun color and pattern combinations in my wardrobe as of late! I also own pants in this fun tiger print print, so I'm looking forward to doing what J. Crew calls "the hook-up" by pairing a top and bottom of the same print together for a very matchy-matchy look! With warmer days in sight, that look may just have to wait until next year, though!
