Since it's that fickle spring weather where it switches from warm to cold within hours, this was definitely a look that was for the colder end. Desirae thought about pairing the look with bare legs, but since this is how she's been wearing it in cold NYC she decided not to mess with the warmth the boots provide. We saw plenty of tweed and flannel midi-length skirts on Dolce and Gabbana and Prada's runway for fall. So it's safe to say that this length of textile is going strong. Although this skirt here is pencil cut, it's a pretty good price for being designer. On a side note, are you guys interested in an awesome long pencil in blue boucle? Asos has it. You'll be stylin' since bigger sweaters with slim or straight skirts are coming on as a pretty legit trend.

Here is what Melody wore to the wedding she photographed last weekend. Very basic and comfortable, but still fitting for the occasion. It was super warm that day so the jacket was most definitely slung. Flats were a must and bare legs were finally fitting. We're sure you guys all have elements similar to this outfit. So break them out!

OK so you know we have a weakness for coats. We saw these come off the runways in Paris last week and seriously fell in love. Here are a few pointers for buying coats at the moment (or for next year). Look for over-sized, more boxy cuts (the coat sling we talked about yesterday from Vogue works perfectly for this look). Also, the 50's shape/cape look is still going pretty strong (we've been seeing this for a while now). Lastly, the shorter cropped jacket looks oh so chic with longer skirts. Remember Derek Lam last year? Yes, this is a nice look. It's also oh so nice for the spring. So break out your maxis with shorter/cropped jackets! You'll definitely catch us doing it.
