To A Haircut and Baseball Game

One thing about Spring weather in Ohio, is that it is unpredictable.  In one day, you can go from being cold, to warm, to hot, and back to cool.  On a day when I will be away from home a lot, it is not unusual for me to have not only a jacket, but also a coat in my car.  Because of these continual temperature changes, one thing that I seem to be drawn to when I am shopping, is outerwear.  I have jackets, coats, vests, scarfs, hats and gloves that I not only keep in my car's trunk, I have a closet full of them at home too.  I like to have different styles, weights, colors and types to get me through any weather or occasion. So, when I saw this Vera Wang for Kohl's jacket at a local thrift store for less than $5, I had to get it.  It was the perfect weight for a windy Spring afternoon, but I felt it was stylish enough that I didn't feel frumpy.  Do you have a favorite go to jacket or coat, or do you change out your outerwear as frequently as you change the outfit you are wearing?

  6. Curse you Ohio. We live in the southern part and it was killing me yesterday with this crazy rain storm. But I'm not as smart as you and didn't have a spare coat. This on is perfect because it would last through whatever weather roller coaster mother nature decided to throw at us
