good morning, good morning, good morning! spring has definitely sprung in the south with gorgeous temps all weekend long. and the sun has been shining overhead for the past week. i honestly cannot remember the last time that happened. this last winter was cold and dreary, to say the least. but old man winter is finally bowing out. and i’m closing the door behind him.
but today it’s all about what i wore shopping. saturday afternoon mr. style and i hopped in the car along with our youngest. it was time for suit shopping. ha! and you thought the shopping expedition was for me. no, saturday afternoon was all about christian and finding the perfect suit. mission accomplished as he came home with navy blue suit plus a coordinating double-breasted vest. a blue shirt and pink tie also found their way into his shopping cart. it’s all in preparation for his big brother’s wedding nuptials that is fast approaching. the first weekend in may to be exact.
since the weather was glorious, there was no need for a jacket. a third layer was added as the weather was warm, not hot. the addition of a cardigan (old, similar here) added some much-needed warmth and gave the white shirt a little pizazz. it’s all about a neutral color scheme today. notice the texture of the sweater. this is what adds that extra oomph to this casual ootd and personality. the cardigan is several years old by St. John. i know, i know it’s frustrating when a style blogger shops her closet. but that’s how i’ve thrown outfits together for years – the new with old. high end and low. it’s what keeps things interesting.
the white shirt is oversized with an on-trend high/low hem. this is a luxury brand shirt Layfayette 148, so the price point is high. white shirts are a staple in my closet and last and last. as a matter of fact, i’m always on the hunt for the perfect one. if it’s within your budget add one or two higher end shirts into your wardrobe.
the denim is from Talbots. it’s the girlfriend jean which gives a looser fit. the cap-toe ballet flats are from Banana Republic. and we all know how much i love ballet flats. whenever i’m in doubt as to what shoe to wear there’s a 90% chance, i’ll reach for a ballet flat.
all right, gang. monday morning has arrived. let’s get this week started!
