I always thought that if I was asked what my favourite time of year was, I'd say summer. As the days and months go by, I'm starting to think otherwise.
As spring sets in, I'm falling more and more in love with the season. Why wouldn't I? My ankles can safely come back out of hibernation without a worry of frost and so, for that matter, can my toes - and we all know how heavenly it feels to be back in open-toed sandals again.
Gone are the woolen jumpers and coats and out come the lighter jackets. The ones you can just thrown on. Not bundle yourself up in, hide away and cover the beloved outfit you spend hours deciding over.
We even start to forget about layers altogether. There's definitely nothing chic about wearing a vest under everything nor an extra jumper, just to be on the safe side. Scarfs can look cool with the right look, but it is such a triumphant feeling when you can tuck them away safely in storage and garnish your neck with a few jewels for a change.
But most of all, I think the real reason I'm becoming infatuated with spring is the promise of new additions to my wardrobe. And not just any old additions, ones that bring the promise of milder, brighter days - like this trench coat from H&M. I've already planned a trillion outfits in my head that it works with and it's perfect for keeping that beautiful springtime chill off of your shoulders.
