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.
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.
all right, ladies, are you ready to shop Ann Taylor spring arrivals? then let’s get tuesday underway.
