styling a spring duster with jeans… when it’s not spring

You can never plan everything so you might as well learn to roll with the punches.  That includes cooking, work, travel, and most recently the weather.  I had been monitoring the NYC weather forecast like a hawk a couple weeks before our trip.  There were so many cute spring pieces I was looking forward to taking on our trip!  For example, I wanted to share how I’m styling a spring duster with jeans for you all.  So before we left, the weather looked great and I packed everything I planned to and off we went.

Then I heard the word snow…

Generally I would do anything for it to snow.  I’ll eternally be that kid that dreams of a snow day.  (Even though I work from home!)  But this time I was worried because I hadn’t exactly packed accordingly.  Thankfully THIS trench coat really saved the day.  It was the only warm thing I brought with me and it really helped break the crazy wind that rolled into the city.  And despite the cold I had planned on wearing this spring duster outfit and the weather wasn’t going to stop me.  I had originally envisioned sitting at a little cafe in my duster while we people watched all afternoon.  With some luck (and after the snow had passed) I did just that… and layered it with my trusty trench.  Seriously that thing was a lifesaver!
