Hi there! I hope this finds you at the tail end of a really lovely weekend. After a pretty crummy week of weather, we finally got some sunshine in Nashville this weekend and it. has. been. GLORIOUS! Everything just seems better with the warmer weather, and the things that come with it- long runs outside, potting tiny plants, eating & drinking on patios, and cleaning with the doors open, to name a few for me this weekend :) 

I definitely need to get a few more wears out of this coat before the weather turns too warm (history shows that I'll have a few chances for sureee.) It has the perfect silhouette and makes me feel totally fabulous. I bought it on a whim at H&M a few years ago, and just don't reach for it for some reason.

I know all black and all neutrals are totally in style right now, but I personally, physically, cannot wear an outfit without some sort of color or pattern. Even if it's just lip color. So this outfit was in perfect harmony for me; I felt business-y and ready to get stuff done at work this day, but also vibrant, and maybe a little whimsical. I never shy away from color (there's probably only a few more years where I can get away with it!), even if sometimes it feels like a bit much. How pretty is this scarf though? I might have to save the full story of how I got it for later, but suffice it to say, it is a VERY random hand-me-down (just how I like 'em.) 

I'll be back tomorrow with my Current State of the Union for February (here's the start of this series last month, in case you missed it!) Some serious (and not serious) things I am OBSESSED with right now. Don't miss it!

I freaking LOVE this outfit! That polka dot top is perfection! I love polka dots SO much! That lipstick is gorgeous on you, girl! I also need to add some sort of color while wearing an all-black outfit!
Sincerely, Sara
