Spring Has Sprung

Spring Has Sprung

Spring has sprung indeed! these 70 and 80 degree days in mid-March in CHICAGO are pretty amazing if I do say so myself, and even though its supposed to rain a few days this week I don't mind. I mean hey it could be a blizzard, just sayin...

By the time I got this blog up and running the time for shorts, and really ANY sort of bare legs, had long since passed so I decided to take this opportunity to show off my first warm weather look.  Today the high temperature is supposed to be a record tying 77 and possibly a record breaking 80, even so, the wind and 59 degree temps this morning called for some sort of jacket.  I opted for this cropped trench because its not only lightweight, but can be folded up and easily stored in my tote ...after all I definitely wont be needing it later, lol. The "wrong-ness" about wearing sandals in March was something I just couldn't get over so I opted for a nice loafer. Oddly enough, I scored this dolman sleeve striped blouse in early February and stashed it in the back of my closet with every intent not to pull it out until Memorial Day, but its breezy enough to keep my cool on a warm March (?) day yet still polished enough to class up cuffed denim Bermuda shorts.

I've been meaning to jump back into running and I promised myself that as soon as the weather started to break I would start power walking/ jogging after work so that my mid summer I could run along the Lake (like just about everyone else in my neighborhood) so stay tuned for some 'runner chic' looks...

Hope you're enjoying the effects of global warming wherever you are, lol!
