preppy style floral jeans

hello Wednesday! and goodbye March. while Georgia has seen its share of rain the past week or so, along with the dreaded yellow slime known as pine pollen, spring is in full swing. the birds are singing, the bees are buzzing, and butterflies will soon appear along with the most delightful creatures – hummingbirds. can you believe Good Friday is a mere two days away, with Easter Sunday fast on its heels? don’t forget to tune into fridays with oscar, where i share my Easter table and a charming Easter dress perfect for the occasion or any spring day. but today’s ootd is all about preppy style and a pair of adorable floral jeans.

there is nothing better than spring, in my opinion, when the earth renews once again. it’s a yearly reminder that all things bright and beautiful are possible. this is the time of year i love to add pastels or bright colors into my wardrobe. if you ever scratch your head wondering what colors to put together, look no further than mother nature. today’s ootd is a prime example. what is more calming than a beautiful spring day filled with blue skies and the yellow sun above? love, love, love any shade of blue that will complement any skin tone. but i have a deep affection for blue paired with yellow. now that’s a color combo certain to bring a smile to your face and a spring to your step.

    Blue, great color on everyone. Long ago, heard it’s why, along with purple, was worn by royalty in their luxurious gowns and robes. You compliment Springtime, Beth! Your latest haircut is growing out so nice, too~

    In New Orleans and along the MS Coast where I live, we would call your yellow shoes, un petit quelque chose en plus. A little something extra. I have a few pair of stripe summer pants but no floral. It might be time to try these out. Eve

    Hi Beth,
    I kinda want nuts ordering Talbot’s blue and yellow. It reminded me of my bedroom’s color scheme when I was growing up. The walls were about the color of your sweater with yellow accents. That’s also the color scheme of Monet’s kitchen. Great spring colors that look good on you just like the model in the catalogue I could plant some daffodils along the seawall to get the blue and yellow and in a couple weeks I’ll have my own blue and yellow outfits just in case I go somewhere

    That is a gorgeous outfit on you, Beth! I love your style. I have that same Ralph Lauren sweater but in cobalt blue. I will need to look for some pants to create a similar look. I really appreciate your wise advice to invest in good quality basics that can be worn for years. You can mix them in so many ways to get a lot of wear. Thank you for your thoughtful content! Have a great Easter weekend with your family.
