Time for another How We Wore It post! I know I say this every month, but I seriously love these posts! I love that it makes me look hard at my closet and pair things together that I wouldn't normally think of!

I'm going to be honest here. I'm not a fan of wearing colour. I pretty much stick to neutrals, and if I ever do wear colour it is almost guaranteed to be blue. So when I saw the photo we were to draw inspiration from I had a little mini panic. I had NO idea what I was going to put together. Then I remembered that I had a bright red trench coat I bought 4 years ago at Target and knew it would be perfect for my outfit. 
Now my original plan was to just wear the coat with the blouse. A nice bright, light spring outfit. Then of course being the ironic Ottawa I know and love, we just got a huge snowfall!!! Seriously. This morning there was no snow at all, looked like a normal spring day. Now however it looks like we're back in December. So to match the weather I added this chunky, thick scarf, which I personally think works really well with the whole outfit.
