it’s always a good day when i partner with one of my favorite brands Ann Taylor. let me tell you Ann is dishing up some gorgeous outfits. so let’s step into spring with gingham and florals. two of my favorite patterns that usher in warmer temps. 

the outfits i’m wearing today are quite distinct. one touts a bold color scheme, cheerful gingham pants, and is casual through and through. the other is perfect for any special occasion that’s penciled on your agenda this spring. a sleeveless floral blouse adds the snap, crackle, punch to a sophisticated blazer and pleated pants. but the suede slingbacks might steal the show.

this time of year a sweater set helps to chase the chill away in style. what i love most about separates is they can be mixed and matched with other items hanging in your closet. but what about this bold shade of orange? personally, i’m on board with orange. and you’ll see this color everywhere this spring. if orange isn’t your thing how about black? the shell and matching cardigan come in orange and black for those of us who may be color shy. this textured sweater shell has contrast stitching along the neck and sleeves. i’m wearing a size medium that fits true to size. the stylish sweater jacket is a must-have this spring. and it has pockets! ’nuff said.

gingham pants are a tell-tale sign spring has arrived. i’m wearing a size 8 in this cropped ankle pant that fits true to size. it has a front zip, tailored fit and comes in orange and black.

florals for spring are always groundbreaking. and this sleeveless floral blouse is no exception. it has a mockneck tie which contrasts nicely with the floral print.

if you are looking for the perfect pant for work or any special occasion, look no further. this pleated pant is made from doubleweave fabric dyed and finished in Japan. the drape is exquisite! which is why it’s perfect for special occasions. the pant is lined with front zip with hook and bar closure. plus, a self-tie belt. i’m wearing a size 8. the fit is true to size. and it comes with a matching blazer in double weave fabric – the hutton.

this textured blazer is cropped, fitted and perfect for any occasion that comes your way. today, it’s styled for a special occasion but look for this lined blazer with piped trim paired with blue jeans in a future post.

special occasions call for special shoes. and these colorblock suede slingbacks fit the bill. it has a padded footbed and three-inch heel. it’s safe to say i’ve fallen head over heels for the sassy shoe.

    Beth I need your help! Wedding season is coming. We received an invitation that reads “formal/business casual”!? I have no idea. I can’t wear short dresses or skirts. Would you consider doing a wedding guest post? Signed, Clueless

    I, too, love the sassy shoes but can no longer wear heels so I am always looking for sassy flats. I like that your posts always show a variety of shoes with outfits.
    Spring in the south, always needs a light jacket and it is nice to have ones that will mix and match with what is already in the wardrobe.

      jackets are a great third layer especially with the fickle weather spring likes to deliver. xo

    lovely and it is even more beautiful in black and white but that it is my taste. Those shoes are to die for by the way. Anne Taylor looks like she has some lovely things. Must have a good peak over Easter. By the way how is the new E book coming along or have I missed it.

    You are always so on point, But not liking that blazer with that outfit. Maybe the photo isn’t showing the true color, but something about it just doesn’t look like your always perfect outfits.

      i hope you took a look at the matching blazer. that might be more to your liking with a longer length. xo

    I have some Ann Taylor pieces that are ten years old. They still work and look great. So many AT items are timeless in style and quality that they end up as investments.
