So Sunny, So Cold

Okay, I guess it's not really been cold here, maybe chilly.  But, it damn sure hasn't been warm and I've been forced into sweaters and coats even though it's nearly May.  Happily for me, I really like this coat:

Yes, it's more yellow, but it's also houndstooth:

And you really can't go wrong with vintage lemon yellow houndstooth:

It's just so perfect for spring.  Especially when paired with aqua skinnies and blue flats:

Coat: vintage  Sweater: LOFT (similar)
Jeans: Old Navy  Flats: Nine West (similar) (similar)

Yep, I highly recommend lemon yellow houndstooth to everyone for those sunny, chilly spring days.

Happy Monday, All!

Hello Again, Yellow Again

I feel like I've been wearing a lot of yellow lately.

A review of the archives shows that I have, in fact, been wearing yellow a normal amount, but it sure feels like a lot.

Maybe because I always want to wear yellow.  Especially this cardigan.  I want to wear this cardigan every day:

Top: LOFT (similar)  Cardigan: Modcloth (size up)
Pants: Gap (similar)  Shoes: Hive & Honey (similar)

It's been the perfect transition piece for spring, brightening up my blues and grays:

So, yeah, you'll probably see this cardigan a few more times in the coming weeks

Because I just can't help myself.

How about you, Reader Friends?  Have you been wearing anything on repeat lately?

Happy Thursday, All!

Apricot Sherbet

I am not actually sure what color this sweater is.  Here it's a sort of orange sherbet hue:

But, here it's a bit darker and more apricot, I think:

Sweater: thrifted vintage (similar)
Skirt: thrifted vintage  Shoes: Corso Como (similar)

So it's... apricot sherbet?  Is that a thing?  It should be, it sounds delicious.

And it looks good with houndstooth.

Happy Tuesday, All!

Knits and Stripes

Man but I love a knit pencil skirt:

In fact, I love them so much that I only have one pencil skirt that is not knit and I only keep it because it's the most beautiful blue ever.  And, in spite of it's gorgeous color, I don't even wear it that much because I prefer the knit skirts.

They are just so darned comfortable.  And so darned easy.

The same is true for this knit bomber.  It's comfortable and easy like a cardigan, but with a less expected silhouette.

Seriously, knitwear is the best.  Especially when paired with a t-shirt.  And doubly especially when paired with a striped t-shirt.

Bomber: LOFT (similar)  Tee: LOFT
Skirt: thrifted (similar)  Sandals: Steve Madden (similar)

For some reason, I am very into stripes lately.

Happy Friday, All!

Flared and Frilled

There are finally (finally!) daffodils blooming here in Western PA and they inspired me to wear a little yellow of my own:

This top is funny because I love the stripes, the color and the cut, but I'm not sure it's all that flattering on me:

I'm pretty sure it gives my shoulders a bit of a "frilled linebacker" look, but I just can't bring myself to get rid of it.  Probably because it is so cheery and comfortable.

And because it looks darned good with my fox locket:

The jeans are also not the most flattering, but ditto on the comfort factor.  And it's nice to break out of that skinny mold sometimes.  Not me.  The jeans.  I haven't been in the "skinny" mold for ages!

Top: old Anthropologie, can't find similar, but I like this option and this one
Jeans: Gap (similar)  Sandals: Banana Republic (similar)

Bottom line, pairing flared with frilled may not be the most flattering, but it's cheery and comfortable and sometimes that's all a girl wants in an outfit.

Happy Wednesday, All!
