spring will have officially sprung in ten days, ladies. but what to wear on those days that are anything but spring-like. those days when the sun isn’t shining, but the weather just might be cooperating. well, at least the temps are hovering in the fifty to sixty-degree territory, which no one complained of ever in the merry month of March. but transitioning your wardrobe from one season to the next can be challenging. that’s when i rely on my wardrobe staples to see me through. today, i reached for stripes, blue jeans, and my trusty moto jacket.
this past week has been glorious weather-wise in Georgia. it’s time to make hay while the sun shines above. this week i started planning my herb garden, cleaned the birdbath, filled the birdfeeders, and organized the patio. now all i have to do is wait for warmer weather for the sod to be placed then my backyard will be complete. can i hear a hip, hip, hooray? this project has been on the back burner for years! Georgia has two windows of opportunity for landscaping – early spring or late fall. if you miss it, you miss it. and let me tell you, it’s been a struggle to find a landscaper to tackle this project. but i think i hit the jackpot this spring! they’ve done an excellent job, even with a few casualties along the way. a fencepost and water line were a little worse for wear. but, hey, it’s coming together even with a ding or two.
there’s lots of talk on the blog about wardrobe staples. one thing i love about these workhorses is that they help transition from one season to the next with ease. this time of year, it’s time to dust off my tees and put them back in action. my ballet flats too. and we all need a spring jacket or two to keep the chill at bay while keeping our style game strong. today i reached for stripes, blue jeans, and moto jacket.
today’s ootd is easy to put together since each item is a must-have wardrobe staple. and, yes, we’ve all heard it said that there isn’t a stripe we’ve met that we didn’t like. this striped tee from Ralph Lauren (old, similar here and here) doesn’t disappoint that notion. it’s part stripes, part graphic tee, and it looks fantastic underneath a faux suede moto jacket from Banana Republic. Tried & Tru blue jeans from Walmart are back in action once again. since the weather is playing nice, i pulled on my ballet flats from Tory Burch. to keep the outfit playful with a hint of femininity, i added a string of pearls.
it’s Wednesday, ladies, time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
