Nothing New – Day 16

Spring Trench in robin's egg blue

Spring Trench in robin’s egg blue

Wearing: Banana Republic trench coat (similar) / Anthropologie top / Spun by Subtle Luxury ikat scarf (featured here) / Kut from the Cloth jeans / Aquatalia waterproof booties (similar) / Sundance earrings.

For the last day of April, it seems right to pull out my spring trench coat. I have a more serious/sleek black trench that I use for city travel and nice dinners out, but this one is my cheerful, happy-go-lucky coat. I swear I’ve had it for at least a decade, but the clean minimalist lines are classic, so I keep it.

Does everyone have garden-fever yet? Everywhere I go plants and flowers are calling out to me. Where I live, the frost-free date is around Mother’s Day, so we still have a few more days to go, but that doesn’t stop most people. They just pull their pots into the garage or put bags on top to weather overnight.

What is your favorite container plant? I always do at least one potato vine, because they cascade like crazy and look lush. Our daughter loves to pull it up at the end of the season and see the potato that grew.

Have a great day!
