Although I was born and raised halfway to Siberia, I’m still a wimp when it comes to cold weather. However as spring brings rising temperatures, I find myself wanting to ditch my coats and jackets ASAP. That said, it still remains chilly in the evening and May showers persist.

I always have my wool trench handy as I’m still not brave enough to wear skin-revealing skirts and shorts. As a compromise I substitute those for cropped tops and high wasted jeans. Note ladies: the midsection of your body is the smallest part of your torso, so bust it out with pride!

I wore my hight wasted Joni jeans and cropped top by Topshop (similar here and here), Karen Millen coat (I love this one by Vince) and Alexander McQueen silk scarf (also in cream/pink and white/blue).
