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.
y’all know i have a deep affection for preppy style that harkens back to my youth. i’ve been smitten with floral jeans or a variation thereof for the past forty years. Talbots trots out a new version of floral jeans just about every year. this go-round the print is watercolor vases with shades of ivory, blue, and light jade. today, i’m wearing these preppy style floral jeans with a light blue tennis sweater that’s years old from Ralph Lauren. what caught my attention about this outfit is that Talbots carries a similar blue tennis sweater this year they modeled with the floral jeans. the outfit looked fantastic with white sneakers. but i decided to add a pair of yellow driving mocs (old, similar here, here, and here) which elevates the outfit while keeping it casual through and through. guess what? my white handbag is back in action today. this little baby goes with everything! especially with all the spring outfits.
it’s Wednesday, ladies; time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
