For now, since it's Wednesday, here are three of my outfits from the past week that combine buds of brightness borrowed from spring days to come with staples from my winter wardrobe.
Cool Colors, Warm Fabrics
... and bad pictures, apparently. It's been so gray and yucky here lately. Even standing practically on the window sill I still can't suck in any natural light, so please excuse the grainy photos.
Teal wool blazer - Merona (Target), many years ago
Blue print silk shell - Banana Republic, thrifted
Winter white matchstick cords - White House, Black Market
Neutral suede pump - BCBG, via Ross
Teal faux skin clutch - DSW
Necklace - Target
LOL. Did I cut myself shaving? Sure looks like it, but those little things on my face (and all over my jacket) are actually snowflakes. My sweet husband took these photos for me on Valentine's Day, which coincided with our once-a-month Tuesday morning standing date. After these were taken, we went in the house and didn't leave again until it was time to pick the little guy up from pre-school. It was one of our better dates ... HUBBA HUBBA! (Wink.)
Black cord jacket - LOFT
Pink polka dot sweater - Old Navy
Matchstick jeans - J. Crew
Leopard print belt - Talbot's
Neutral/black patent shoe - Audrey Brooks
Necklace - LOFT
Probably my favorite of the three - this outfit just had me feeling cute and perky all day long.
Can't you tell?
Pink sweater - Express, thrifted
Black/white striped tee - Pouf Excellence, TJ Maxx
Black skinny pants - PINQUE, TJ Maxx
Black booties - Impo
Necklace, black bracelet - Old Navy
Silver Bracelet, New York & Co.
So yes, my winter wardrobe got a healthy dose of the light and bright this week, and I plan to continue the trend!
Again, stop by tomorrow to get some quick ideas on how to bring your wardrobe out of its late winter slump with just 5 new easy-to-transition-to-spring pieces.
I'll be linking this post to What I Wore Wednesday and Real Momma, Real Style. If you're here from there, be sure to comment and leave me a link to your WIWW post so I can come see What YOU Wore.
See you tomorrow!
