Don’t Pack Away Your Coats Just Yet….

I thought the cold weather was gone for good, but Mother Nature had different plans for Atlanta.  Tuesday the cold blew in on a high wind advisory, and left us with freeze warning.  Ummm what the heck? It’s mid-April and I live in the south! Lol.  So, I woke up yesterday morning at 7am to take pictures, and O. M. G. it was soooooo cold outside.  I mean, just the other day I was wearing an itty bitty dress and sandals…but yesterday’s weather definitely called for a coat.  Mentally, I’ve kinda already transitioned to full on spring, so I was determined to put together a cold weather outfit that still screamed springtime…and my pink coat was just what the doctor ordered.

Paired with off-white jeans, a floral print blouse, and mint pumps…this look is spring ready, but more importantly warm.  (although my fingers were icicles…shoulda wore gloves!)

Now, about these white jeans. (Here I go again.)  I just don’t know what it is, but I always LOVE white jeans in theory, but when I see myself in them, I just don’t know.  I feel like my legs just look so…ummm…big? Like disproportionately big?  I’m sure it’s just in my mind because I’m a woman…and you know how we are…we just can’t help nitpicking ourselves.  (Why do we do that?)  I went through this last time I wore white jeans (the fact that I can count the number of times I’ve worn them says something, because y’all know I wear out the things I love.)  So, why do I keep wearing them?  I think because 1) I know I’m just trippin and 2) I really love white jeans when I see them on other people.  And I mean, seriously…this color combination is really lovely, right?  Blue jeans would have been cute, but the white jeans really make the look what it is.  I guess you could say I’m good at getting over my body image issues for the sake of fashion. Lol!  I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing???

It’s one of my latest buys from JustFab. For only $40, this bag has a really classy and expensive look and feel.  It comes in black and tan as well, but I think in the ivory and tan combo make it a great structured bag for spring and summer.  Of course, I work from home, but if I had to go into the office everyday, this would be my  new go-to for the season.
