Spring Showers | Floral Raincoat with Pink and Mint Pastels

Spring style: Floral raincoat, pink trousers, mint loafers #pastels
I'm desperately wearing brights and florals in a vain attempt to bring out the sun... so far it's not worked. But there's something about wearing brights that lifts your mood, despite the cold and the wind and the rain. I still love my mint loafers even though they were "the" colour of 2012 (was it really that long ago?) - they just go so well with my pink Joules chinos. The AW13 Seasalt raincoat is also still a big hit with me and it's the perfect jacket to grab when I'm on my way out the door at this time of year.

The colours may not be reflecting exactly what we're getting weather-wise but it's nice to be reflecting the season at least. Expect more and more bright colours as the weeks go on...!

Are you consciously adapting your wardrobe and your choices to the seasons yet? What colours are going to be your go-to colours this spring do you think?

    1. Yes please do, Rotterdam ( only just across the Canal from Devon) is covered in clouds, sleet, wind and rain and moody people who are fed up with the total disappearance of Spring...

  3. What a cute pattern for a raincoat. We're still waiting for the last of our snow to leave.

  4. We have frozen our bits off in Oxford today, so much so I nipped into Fat Face and bought a scarf!! I did buy it in bright colours for the very reason you mentioned....to make me feel brighter despite the temperature and grey clouds :-) Love the way you wear colour its such an inspiration to someone like me who tends to stick with the same old shade. Hope you have defrosted and are enjoying your Saturday xx

    1. I was up in London on Saturday, Kareema, and it was FREEZING!!!!!! I'm not surprised you bought a scarf. But since then we've had some gorgeous sun and warmth so maybe my plan worked...! Thank you so much for your lovely comments x

  5. Hi Catherine, as we went straight in to Autumn here I'm still in my winterclobber and I'm starting to hate all of it! Try to wear lighter things but they don't yet work because a) I get too chilly and b) attract too many stains from all mud that s litterally everywere here ( and i live in a big city, go reckon) I do however have a pair of mint coloured suède broques and not caring one bit that they are so 2012 �� looking forward to wearing them again! Have a good Easter! i've already eaten all the chocolate eggs!

  13. Brave girl, making outfit photos in the cold with bare legs and summer clothes. Thank you, it brings a bit of spring.
    My colours are going to be white/blue/yellow. The shops are filled with it and I bought a lot of these colours last year too. But I long for bright red. Nowhere to be found. Nowhere.

    1. I always do that, Greetje (long to wear/buy a colour that's not on trend and can't be found in the shops)!! Very frustrating. It wasn't so cold that I couldn't do the bare ankle thing - I'm usually okay feet-wise... it's gloves I always need!!

      Plus I like the sound of white/blue/yellow - must give that a try myself! Thanks hun x

    2. I have gone overboard with it as well. Even bought a white/yellow/blue leather shopper in Italy. On my blog Sunday late afternoon.

  14. What a gorgeous rain coat. I try not to pay attention to the "it" color of the moment and just wear what I love. This way, it will feel good no matter what color is in at the moment.

    1. That's the best way to do it, Alice - I guess I do that myself but I do get drawn in if a certain colour is on trend and I love it anyway!! Thank you sweetie x

  15. Hi
    The post you have shared is doubtlessly wonderful. I was searching for this blog post for long ago. Womens Rain Coat is a must-have for women’s in spring season. If you are also looking to buy one, you can browse through the internet as numerous sites are operating over the internet today that deals in women’s rain-wear.
    Regards,
    Alexandra R.
