Hopefully this is the LAST TIME this coat appears on the blog – until next winter at least. Today I felt a warm wind blowing, which to me is a very promising sign of spring!
I actually wore this outfit in early January, before it started snowing, but it’s basically the same weather we were having last week: cold, no snow. This week it has been spring break so I’ve been exercising a lot (finally joined a gym!) and having an all-around epically productive staycation. As a result, I’ve barely been getting dressed. Although I did get dressed for a show and a bachelorette party, and I got an unexpected compliment on my boots!

I bought this beautiful purple floral jacket at a Suno sample sale back in the fall. It was a bit of a splurge, but then I saw the jacket on the Outnet and I got a way better deal! So yeah, sample sales for the win. It didn’t really make sense to wear in the winter, but as soon as spring started to happen I couldn’t wait to bust it out, which I did for a fun Clarins event last week (plus I was riding in a car so heels were a no-brainer). And I’m glad I did – the weather has turned cold again and I’m back to warm sweaters and my trusty orange coat. Womp.

This outfit was inspired by a good hair day. My hair was really neat, so I felt like my outfit should be, too. Or something. It made sense in my head!
I tried out Living Proof’s curl conditioning wash, curl detangling rinse, and curl defining styling cream. I was initially really pleased with the results. I felt like my curls were super calm and under control which is a rare occurrence! The only thing is that the curl defining styling cream wasn’t moisturizing enough. By the end of the day my hair felt dry and brittle. Thankfully I have DevaCurl’s Set It Free which I don’t really use on its own, but which is excellent when my hair needs a little extra help. The one other thing about the curl defining styling cream is that you can’t use it on dry hair – and not being able to use curly hair products on dry hair is a pet peeve of mine! But summer is coming so I anticipate lots of wet hair and thus lots of under-control curls.
FYI, right now at Sephora if you spend $25 you get minis of the curl conditioning wash and curl defining styling cream (with code “curlduo”), plus, they’re being offered as samples at check-out too. I’m not being paid to say this – I just figured if I’m talking about the products I should mention how to get them for free (er, free-ish)!
