the perfect spring jacket

I'd argue that there are fewer days more difficult to dress for than the first few weeks of spring.  When I walked the dogs this morning, it was 40 degrees outside - weather certainly not worthy of bare legs & sandals.  However, we have a trip to the park planned this afternoon, when it's slated to hit 72 degrees!  What's a girl to do?  In March on days like that, your winter coats probably seem far too heavy (and too depressing!)  So yesterday I set out on a mission to find the perfect "coat" to carry me through to May, and I absolutely did!  I've never bought a trench coat before - most are too boxy, too manly - or on the opposite end of the spectrum, too girly due to the additions of ruffles, bows, or piping.  I headed into Gap with ideas of picking up a solid jean jacket, and while that's still on my list I put it off in favor of this tan trench coat.  I got it on sale (times 2, because the one I picked up had been an in-store return) so the price was unbeatable and I have a feeling I'll be wearing it for years to come.  It feels far more expensive than the price it's listed at.  I highly recommend stalking it on gap.com until they have one of their 40% off sales, which seem to happen frequently.  Of course I can't close it over the bump, but if I could I would only wear it for 3 months, so I figured wearing it open would suffice until the baby comes!
