This week I will be sharing with you the looks that I wore while we were on our trip to London! I have to admit, packing for this trip was hard.  I wanted to pack all the sun dresses, and sandals, and lightweight cardigans, but the spring weather in London is so much different than here in Southern California. That got me thinking; I love coming up with spring looks to wear when it’s hot where I live, but what would I wear if I lived somewhere that was still chilly this time of year? I lived in Utah when I was in college and first married, and I remember being so upset when we got snow in April or clear into May or June. So this post is dedicated to all of you that are dying to wear shorts and sandals, but still have grab your coats as you head out the door.

I teamed up with Nordstrom to round up some warmer coats for chilly spring days that still look on trend for spring. This challenge was actually pretty fun for me. It turns out there are a lot of good options, the trick is getting the right color and pairing it correctly with the rest of your look. Thank goodness for Nordstrom and their unbeatable return policy! I was crunched for time prepping for my trip, so I ordered a few sizes in different coats and sweaters, with the peace of mind that I could return the size that didn’t work. It was a lifesaver!

I think a camel colored coat or trench is a must have for a cool spring. It is so versatile, and it has a lighter feel to it than a dark black coat (it can easily transition into the fall/winter too). My camel coat is currently sold out, but Nordstrom has other great options like this one and this one. And this trench coat is so incredible! If it rained more in LA, I would add this one to my closet in no time. I also love the lighter colored coats like this one and this one. How cute is this floral coat? It’s so spring, but still nice and warm. I finished off my look with a bandana and comfy printed flats since we were walking all over that day!
