florals for spring? groundbreaking. valid point, miranda priestley, but i, for one always look forward to spring and those delicious florals that come with it. let me be the first to say spring in the south is spectacular. nature knows how to show off with a spectacular array of blooms from wisteria, forsythia, azaleas, and red buds. let’s not forget the gorgeous white bartlett pear trees. yes, spring is just around the corner. at least it is in Georgia. so it’s time to think about pulling out those florals and raincoats and easing into spring.
one thing i love about January is that brands start to tease us with pastels and pops of bright colors. of course, we all love our sophisticated neutral color palettes. but there’s something to be said about incorporating pinks and blues and soothing greens into our wardrobes especially come spring and summer. nothing puts a smile on my face faster than wearing pink. it’s truly my favorite color of all time, whether it’s a vibrant fuschia or soft baby pink. navy blue comes in a close second. guess what? navy and pink look fantastic together. let’s take a look.
this pinkilicious raincoat is from Talbots, although purchased last year and seen here. not to worry, as there is a 2021 edition available online and in stores. one feature i love about raincoats is a hood. how many times have you been caught in the rain without an umbrella? not to worry with a hooded raincoat. simply flip the hood over your head. at least your hair is protected from those raindrops. and how adorable is this floral scarf? scarves come into play big time in the spring. not only do they add an extra layer of warmth, but they’re the perfect accessory to any outfit.
since i’m in the pink today, why not wear a pair of pink denim? this pair is a slim ankle jeans from Talbots. typically, i can wear a size six or eight in Talbots, but i’m happy i chose a size 8 as this is a slim cut. a tried and true navy blue sweater (old, similar here) from J.Crew is back in action, along with a stripe ruffleneck shirt last seen here. a pair of navy loafers (old, similar here and here) from Everlane, and this ootd is just waiting for spring temps. don’t hold it against me, but that just might be today as the high will be a balmy 72 degrees in athens.
