spring is inching closer and our temps just might decide to match! either way, this girl is getting her spring game face on. it’s time to beat those winter doldrums with a fresh color palette and a little pattern mixing to boot. but a jacket is a necessity this time of year to keep the chill at bay. my favorites? trench coat, jean jacket, and utility jacket. these three wardrobe staples help me transition to winter/spring or fall/winter. today i reached for a Talbots green utility jacket that’s several years old. similar here and here. features that i look for in a utility jacket are a waist-defining drawstring and pockets. because we all know pockets make everything better.
this floral skirt from Boden is happy and bright. but the addition of yellow grosgrain ribbon around the waist is a lovely detail that makes this skirt sing. the fabric has stretch to it which keeps it comfortable yet retains its shape. what could be better for a form-fitting pencil skirt? a short sleeve breton tee gives this ootd some oomph and suede sandals help me step into spring in style. a bold lip color, cool sunnies and i’m ready to face the day!
happy wednesday, ladies! we’re halfway through the week.
