The weather has been surprisingly chilly for late March and early April. Some casual spring transition outfits below.
Winter fades to spring
Darkness transitions to light
Navy to floral
The outfit above is from last year around this time. A floral print always says spring to me. The skirt above was a find from another girls’ exchange. I’ve been getting a lot of great items from friends. At a recent girls’ exchange, I picked out a red purse for my mom and also got a charming little teapot.
As can be seen throughout this post, my fix for all occasions is a cardigan.
VS Cardigan (2010) / Velvet Jacquard Skirt (gift, 2012) / Wolford Tights from Bloomingdale’s (2013) / H&M Flats (2012) / BR Tote (2012) / Black Rose Studs from Claire’s (2000)
Cardigan and skirt
A velvet rose crinkles near
Ladylike lives on
My brother’s fiancee gifted me with a lovely rose velvet jacquard skirt last year. The skirt was made and bought in Viet Nam and I love the fullness of the skirt. The texture adds interest to a monochrome outfit.
An arresting shade
Orange becomes the new black
This F21 sweater was bought because it was on clearance (it was $10.98 when I bought it) and I was looking for a new sweater. I tried to return it after receiving it because it was a little too bright and shed like crazy. Unfortunately/Fortunately, I was unable to return it because it was on final sale (the price ending in 98 should have been a clue). I have worn this sweater a surprising number of times since then (last seen here). It’s cozy and comfortable, which is exactly what I was going for when dressing for a chilly spring day.
Have a great weekend!
