Mood Board of the Month: In Like a Lamb

There may be 7 inches of snow outside my door, but that doesn't stop me from thinking SPRING! It's March, time to start getting inspired for warmer weather and sunshine! I've got a new spring color palette based on marsala, the color of the year.

// Patterns //
This month I've got a mix of transitional clothing. For lounging around the house you can't beat these stretch pants (Vogue 8859) with a cozy Renfrew cowl neck t-shirt. Need to run out for ice cream? (Oh wait, am I the only one who does that when it's cold?) Try the brand new Josephine cocoon coat from Style Arc. When you're in need for something dressier, brave the temps with a dress like Butterick 6169, and top it with the coordinating moto jacket from the same pattern.

// Fabric //
Stretch pants are perfect for ponte, and this grey fabric from Emma One Sock will work perfectly. Coordinate it with the color of the year, marsala, making your Renfrew shine with an ottoman knit, also from EOS. Take your cocoon coat to the next level and color block it with navy and grey wool melton from Fabric.com. For your easy pull-on dress, go bold with a floral print rayon challis from Hart's Fabric. Keep warm with the moto jacket made from navy twill, from Mood.

  1. It didn't even enter my mind to color block the coat - great idea!
