Where art thou, spring?

Posted on

Like, seriously, where are you, spring? It’s felt like the longest winter ever here in Indianapolis, long enough for the Weather Channel to title an online article with “Three More Chances for Snow (We’re Sorry).” Yeah, all of us in the Midwest and Northeast are sorry, too.

In the meantime, while we’re hoping for spring to actually arrive, we’ve got a few more chances to pull out our velvets, brocades and boots. This dressy winter look pairs a royal blue velvet wrap dress with a patterned coat in similar tones (file this under “Pattern Combining 101”) and a clutch in a contrasting color.

Maybe coats with flowers will bring actual flowers? Yeah, I haven’t got my hopes up either.
