hi ho! it’s off to work i go. happy monday morning, ladies! if you can believe it another week is underway. but i’m ready and raring to go thanks to spring arrivals from Ann Taylor. look at this nine-to-five ootd that starts with a soft and stretchy ponte pencil skirt that’s always a welcome addition to my closet. this seamed skirt has a flattering silhouette with an elasticized waistband, back yoke, and back vent. it comes in three colors: black, atlantic navy, and winter violet. plum was my top pick as it pairs beautifully with this stitched fringe sweater jacket in the same color palette. it’s a match made in heaven! don’t forget the beauty of separates is they can be mixed and matched with other items in your closet. i know for a fact the fringed sweater will be seen on the blog again and maybe again.
every suit needs a special blouse tucked underneath. and this knot neck blouse is modern and fresh thanks to the knot neck with side pleats. the blouse comes in winter violet if you wanted a monochromatic look. but i chose pink dust for subtle contrast. and we all know i have a penchant for pink.
diagonal stitched stripes are flattering and fresh. add a little fringe for texture and this sweater jacket can be dressed up or down with ease.
grey suede buckle pumps are the perfect compliment to purple and pink hues.
if you’re ready for spring like i am then put this floral jacquard sweater on your radar screen. it’s fresh and fun and packs a color punch without sensory overload. it has a flattering boatneck neckline and long sleeves. today i chose to wear this sweater with black ankle pants with a tied waist, front zip, and off-seam pockets. it’s available in black, blue, and green.
bow suede kitten heels in pink? yes, please. a 2″ heel is the perfect height any day of the week. but the feminine detail of the bow is just the sort of detail that sets this shoe apart. it also comes in navy.
as you can see the trees are in bloom. take heart, ladies; spring is headed our way. the temps will bounce back and forth for the next month or so at least in athens, ga. but last saturday was picture perfect with a high of seventy-three degrees and sunshine. i’ll take it! happy monday, gang. make it a good one.
