Spring.. so close yet so far. I figured since most of the East Coast is digging itself out from under a mountain of snow today, it was a good time to share an easy way to add freshen up your wardrobe no matter then weather – spring pastels.
I’ve been eyeing overalls for more seasons than I’d like to admit at this point. On cool girls in coffee shops, on Pinterest, everyone was pulling them off with ease. But for some reason I felt like on me they’d be all wrong. But then I reminded myself that I tried wide leg chinos recently to happy results and so I finally decided to give it a go. This pairwas less than $40 and as evidenced here – we’re getting along just fine.
I recently picked up this embroidered detail blouse and when I went to find it online for you all realized that it had quickly sold out (the one shoulder version or dress version are still available though). After searching ‘stripe off the shoulder top’ to find something similar, approximately 1 million cute options appeared. It’s worth stating – this look is having a major moment. Since I’ve already got this one, I’m not sure that I can indulge in another, but you all should take full advantage of the plethora of affordable options. Here – just a few:
Hello March! While you’ve certainly come in like a lion, I’ve taken to dressing like it’s already a lamb. Call it wishful thinking. This dark floral jumpsuit will be perfect for when it’s actually warmer – but in the meantime it works with an oversized cardigan and lace-up heels.
There is a very explicit happiness that I attach to Spring jackets. They signify a distinct shift – when the weather is not quite fully warm yet, but allows for the first chance to shrug your shoulders out of those oppressive Winter coats. For that reason alone I really like them. Couple that with a bold print and swingy shape (anddddd water-resistant finish and removable hood) like this one from Boden – and I’m in love.
