Coats, sweaters, tops and pants–that’s what you need for springtime in Chicago. Here it is, almost Easter and the temperatures are hovering around the freezing point. And we have 6 weeks more to go of this lovely spring weather, until about June 1st when summer usually arrives, hot and sticky.
I love this trench coat from Burberry, but this fabric could never be found in Chicago, so it’ll go on my wish list and maybe I’ll find it marked down 90% at the end of the season!
I wanted to make a pair of shorts to go with my DVF knock-off blouse and fatigue green linen was the way to go. I think the brown shorts paired with the blouse on the Bloomingdale’s site are cotton, but I wanted my shorts to be a little dressier.
