Happy Monday! Oh, wait … it’s Tuesday. My four-day weekend/vacation has really set me up for a confusing week, but it was well worth it. Stay tuned later this week for more pics from my trip to Southern Utah to visit a few of the national parks.
As far as my outfit goes, I know I can always count on some shopping during a trip to Utah to spruce up my wardrobe. This top from Macy’s was less than $10, and it makes me want to hop on a bike and take a ride around the city. (I wish I had room in my apartment for a bike — here’s hoping it happens one day! A fold-up bike is on my wish list at the moment.)
I’m a neutrals junkie (my closet is filled with them), but when spring fever hits, colors start making appearances. Take this pink gingham blouse, for example. Bright sunshine and this blouse were made for each other. I do find that I still incorporate lots of neutrals into my spring wardrobe — just in lighter, warm-weather appropriate colors (like this army green vest or taupe bag).
Is it Friday yet?
Wow. Is anyone else shocked by how quickly the weekend flew by? My weekend was packed: taxes (four hours and five-plus phone calls to my financial-planning dad), shopping, room/office rearranging, a Sephora event, cronuts, a walk to get frozen yogurt, a walk around a local lake/park, making a giant pot of vegetable stew, a flat tire (Liz’s second flat tire this year), and a low-key concert. Needless to say, it was a very busy weekend but a very fulfilling one.
P.S. When it comes to weekend wear, I’m all about denim and stripes. This cropped trench? I bought it a few years ago at F21 and it has worn beautifully — proof that if you’re picky about what you buy at the trendier stores, they can last you a long time. (I couldn’t find a F21 cropped trench online, but here’s a fun trench they’re selling in leopard.)
As I’ve mentioned before, spring is the trickiest season in terms of getting dressed every day. For me, denim is still my go-to (as it has been all winter), but I begin incorporating light colors and lightweight fabrics into my daily outfits. This jacket from Nordstrom was a little intimidating at first due to the crazy volume at the hips, but the key is to keep everything else streamlined and draw attention away from the volume with a pattern and a pop of color in a statement necklace. Seriously, I’ve worn this outfit at least once a week since we started getting slightly warmer weather. When it works, you just go with it!
It’s officially time to begin wishing for spring. Of course, this blazer only encourages my dreams of slightly warmer weather, leaves on the trees and flowers blooming. Oh, and this necklace? it was a happy accident. I bought it for Liz for Christmas, but it wasn’t quite the color she wanted. I decided to keep it for spring, and I’m glad I did!
Happy, happy weekend! On my agenda: a good, old-fashioned closet clean-out and some spring cleaning.
