Over the weekend I found myself antsy for Spring to arrive. True, I live on the West Coast so really I have no place to talk (especially this year) but there’s an intangible feeling that I look forward to when winter melts away and everything around you starts feeling brighter, lighter and happier. My mood recently led me to inch towards a less-wintery look with a floral print. One way I validate my spring pieces in the trenches of winter is incorporating black basics into the mix. A simple black flat, a no-frills tote, black jeans and black tees are a few things I love pairing up with a blooming print. When I first spotted this moto jacket, the first thing I noticed was the black piping. I immediately tagged it as a piece that could brighten up a dreary winter day but also be a favorite well into the summer.
