March is the official memo to everyone, including Mother Nature, that warmer days are almost here. Unpleasantly , this month did not start on a good weather-note. It rained all day yesterday and the worst was the afternoon freezing rain. The next few days have been forecatsed to bring in some more snow and few freezing rain showers. No complaint whatsoever, coz the last day of February surprised us with a balmy, almost spring-like weather, which meant breaking out my new spring-ready coat.
This coat has it's own story about how it landed in my closet. Admittedly, it was an influential purchase, putting the blame partly on the snowed-in-Saturday and partly on the Instagram feed of a fellow blogger who rocked this coat on her baby shower. Anyways, I had seen the coat and liked it too, at one of the H&M stores. Buying it then would have been like adding one more to my arsenal, that would get worn once and thereafter forgotten for a while. Nonetheless I gave it a try, for the sole purpose of determining the size and fit, just in case of a future mind change. However I walked out the store..........empty handed. But when I spotted the same on that prego blogger, right from adding it to my shopping cart, to applying a coupon and to finally ordering it, it barely took me five. As if this blogger spotting wasn't enough, a store credit from a previous return and the cabin-fever pertaining to back-to-back snow days, further facilitated this decision. So despite all odds, this coat made it's way to my closet and I have to admit that I am totally delighted!
