the best part of spring? besides the flowers in bloom and the birds singing that is. well, one of the best parts for me is lighter layers. it’s sooooo nice to slip into a sleeveless silk top, cotton pants, and my all-time favorite – linen. and while today’s ootn is casual glam as mr. style and i are headed to dinner this linen duster will easily make the transition to the office or the weekend. who doesn’t love a versatile item?
gray and white is a beautiful color combination come spring summer. and i’d lay a bet most of us have at least one pair of white pants hanging in their closet. if you don’t, think twice as white pants are an essential wardrobe staple. today’s version is a cropped ankle pant that can also transition to the office or weekend with ease. haven’t i mentioned your clothes need to work for you? yes, they do.
for today’s ootn i threw on a lovely silk blouse found on sale late last summer. this is the first opportunity i’ve had to wear it. once high temps roll into town, i’m certain it will be on summer repeat. but for now, it’s tucked underneath a lightweight linen duster (also found on sale last year). white cotton pants, jeweled block heels, a little bling, and clutch purse are all that’s needed to complete this outfit. oh, and a little lipstick refresh before i head out the door.
