Transition Pieces

In this awkward in between time between the end of winter and the beginning of spring it can be tough to plan a wardrobe that meets the needs of the season. Although it's starting to warm up in Minneapolis, it's not fully spring yet. In this transition period, an intermediate coat is an absolute necessity. I've retired my winter coat but I still need to wear something. I love the outerwear options at Zara this season. Which of these is your favorite?

I think (okay, okay. I know) I'm leaning toward the colorful coat on the right. It's so ladylike and classic and the coral color makes it stand out. I've also been seeing it on the pages of Anna Jane's blog lately and can't help but love it there.

What are your favorite winter to spring transition pieces?


  1. I'm obsessed with that Zara coat! Such a perfect pop of color for spring

  2. I LOVE the orange coat! The color and style are fabulous. I hope you get it!! I have this gorgeous spring coat from years ago that's green and yellow, but I feel like I have to wait until it stops snowing to wear it :(

  3. The bright coat is gorgeous! Definitely a statement piece and perfect for transitioning into spring! You really can't go wrong with either of these though.

  4. I really like the colorful one, especially because the shape is totally different from any other coat I own. I have a classic trench that I wear all the time, but it's looking a little worse for the wear lately, so it might be time to replace it.
