Comfort Zone

Look

de jour

the scoop

After the overalls look from Monday which I am still not sure how I feel about I dressed for today staying in my comfort zone. This look is probably the type of style that I am most comfortable wearing. I love the relaxed fit of the flared trouser jeans, the crispness of the white long-sleeved white tee and the classic look of the navy and white cardigan. I wore a pair of tan booties and carried my leopard clutch. For jewelry I wore a pair of white earrings and my initial necklace. Everything in this outfit is old, like many years old except the white tee. I have had these trouser jeans (I have three pairs) for probably five years. The sweater is that old at least maybe more. My booties are four years old and my bag is a couple of years old. It just shows that when you buy classic pieces they never go out of style and are worth the investment.

Let me know what are you most comfortable wearing? Do you ever go outside your style box?

I’m linking my exact necklace and bag as well as similar tees and jeans.

My Look

My jeans were purchased at the Loft, my tee from the Rack and my cardigan is INC from Macy’s. My booties were bought at Nordstrom, the brand is bp. My Clare V bag was also purchased at Nordstrom. My earrings came from Target last winter and my necklace is from the Rack. I will see how many of these items I can find or at least something really similar to link for creating your own look!

Spring Style While Waiting For Spring Temperatures

Baby It's cold outside

So what's a girl to do? Well this girl is still going to add spring elements to her style.

White jeans are an any time of year item these days, but really are even more perfect for spring transitioning. For me they make it feel like spring even when it is still really chilly outside. Add a white tee, also a spring staple and some fun wedges and you have a complete spring look. Now warm it up with a cozy waffle knit sweater in a beautiful spring color and you have it all. Spring style while staying warm. 

I'm linking up my earrings, jeans, tee and bag and a cute cardigan and wedges for this look!

Add fun Jewelry in vibrant colors

For me, my new assortment of colorful earrings are a staple for adding spring details to a look. 

I thought I needed a bold anchor color for this look so wearing a belt that matches my shoes did that for me. My leopard clutch seemed just right to complete this look.

Here are some more fun options for creating your own look!

As always Gang, thank you for stopping by!

Peace!

The Petal Hem

What is a petal hem?

It's the thing for spring! We all know about the raw hem, and the step hem but now we have the petal hem. And I love it.

You all know that I'm not afraid to try new things. I am what my husband calls an early adopter. And the minute I saw a pair of these jeans I knew I would wear them a lot for spring and summer. There are different versions of these jeans but the hem is shaped to different degrees like a petal. These are minimal but I have seen some that the split goes up to the middle of the lower leg. I also notice that the lighter colored jeans are popular for spring. I still love my dark flares but these are in close competition for my heart!

Now add a pop of yellow!

If the petal hem is not enough to make you think spring, then get a load of this yellow cardigan. Think sunshine, daffodils or tulips. 

Most places will have a cool day or evening as spring approaches so a spring colored cardigan can carry you through. In my case it will carry me all year long in the mountains where even in the dead of summer our nights drop down into the 40s and 50s. 

Show a little toe?

Yes! I think sandals can be one of the first things you switch to for spring style.

The last thing in this look that is new for spring is the tie front shirt. Well the tie front anything is fun and on point for spring. I'm linking up my jeans, and sweater and options for creating your own look!

As always gang, thanks for stopping by.

Peace!
