Inspiration:  ModCloth

Clothes are so much more than fluff. Consider their ability to lift the mood of the one wearing it, and those around them! That is precisely the goal of today's outfit. When I saw the inspiration photo it sparked an idea to get creative with a skirt I wore last summer (here). I thought why not make it work for multiple seasons by pairing it with a yellow coat?! And the rest of the details fell into place. Spring can't get here fast enough!
