"In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours," Mark Twain. This quote from the famous author makes me think he must have spent a fair bit of time in Canada. Over the weekend I had an argument with my partner regarding swapping our winter gear for spring. For the record, I was against and he was for. I'm just not ready to pack up my winter pieces yet, because Twain is right, the weather is too darn unpredictable this time of year. The transitional times between seasons are annoying when you’re deciding what to wear as you walk out the door in the morning. Make the wrong choice and you'll either freeze and suffocate. In the end, we skipped the full on closet swap and compromised, banishing the heavy duty coats for next season and re-visiting our fall and spring favourites, the transitional coats and jackets. With the thaw in full effect I'm on the market for a new transitional coat and I stumbled on this beauty from Zara, which retails for $90.90. The style caught my eye with its beautiful emerald green hue, artful pattern and sleek menswear inspired silhouette. This coat would easily work year round in your wardrobe, as a transitional jacket in fall and spring and in the summer with a cotton maxi dress in an over air conditioned office or in winter paired with a turtle neck and tweed trousers.
