OOTD - Grey Coat for Spring


Typically around this time I'm focusing on transitional winter-to-spring outfits, but with the warm weather we experienced in Toronto over the weekend it was straight into Spring.  If only I could write poetry about how much I love this long line, oversized grey coat.  Seriously, this recent Spring wardrobe score has totally won over my heart with its casual silhouette, lighter fabric and the fact that it covers my tushy nicely. Paired with a grey t-shirt dress, nude lace-up pumps and my favourite leopard clutch (dusted off from the wardrobe), I'm ready to take on the new season.

Coat - TopShop, Dress - Aritzia, Shoes - Le Chateau, Clutch - Clare V



If you read my previous post about investment pieces, this leopard clutch from Clare V is definitely a case on why it's good to invest in handbags.  I've had this bad-boy for years and while it isn't in my daily rotation anymore, the clutch always makes me happy when I wear it.  Maybe it's the old Italian lady in me, but I firmly believe that any outfit could do with a little leopard print - am I right?!




I'm happy to have skipped straight from winter to spring and although the weather in Canada is temperamental, I hope that it's here to stay! What do you guys think?  Do you like the neutral shades of grey?  Was your weekend gorgeous weather-wise as well?  Let me know!
