The good mood has continued through to today. The sun showed itself yesterday for the first day of Spring, and it was almost 70 degrees here. To celebrate all of that sunshine, I stayed in the house all day long. What is wrong with me??? Instead of going outside and working in the yard, I wandered into my laundry room to get something, and I glanced over at the wall of shoes. This is where I keep all of mine and Joe’s shoes, and all I could see were boots and booties. I decided it was time to “boot” them to the winter shoe box.
I am not even what I would consider a shoe lover. I know that some women love their shoes and they can’t get enough. I am like that when it comes to handbags, but I can take it or leave it when it comes to shoes. That is probably why my biggest struggle when I am putting together an outfit is the shoes. Three hours later I had taken down all of the winter shoes and replaced them with my summer shoes. The problem is that I didn’t have a tote big enough to hold my winter shoes because boots take up so much room. Instead, it looks like a shoe tornado went through the room that houses my exercise equipment. That room is now home to all of my winter boots. It wasn’t like I was going to be using that room a lot anyway. Lol!
If this outfit doesn’t get you in the mood for spring, then I don’t know what will. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the newest spring trends, which is neutrals, but I am jumping in with both feet now. I think that I was envisioning the color oatmeal for everything, but now I realize that there is a wide variety of neutral colors and we need to find what works the best for us. I love this pale pink cocoon cardigan that I bought a month ago. The last time that I wore this cardigan, I wore it with jeans. (see here) I liked the look, but I LOVE today’s look. I would have never thought that a few simple changes would make such a big difference. This cardigan is still in stock and under 25.00. Go here to purchase it while it lasts.
I didn’t feel the need to add a lot of jewelry, but I have gotten where I feel naked without wearing earrings. This pair, called Laiken, mimicked the floral design of the scarf. They are a pale pink lucite flower with crystal centers. Then, I added the Frankie bracelet, but they can’t keep that thing in stock. It has sold out again! Plunder has been having some huge sales on their jewelry, so be sure to check it out HERE, and be sure to pick a party with my name in it.
I am sure that most of you have visited or have seen the store Chicos. In fact, I just styled a couple of items (here, here, and here) from their store in the past couple of weeks. So, you can see why I was thrilled when they reached out to me wanting to know if I wanted to style an outfit from them. I picked out a few things (you will see those later, and you are going to love it) along with this pair of jeggings in toasted tan. If you are like me, when you hear the word jeggings, it can strike fear in your heart. You have nothing to fear with these pants. They are a high-quality material (means no see-through issues) and they are constructed with the perfect stretch technology. I ordered my regular size 10 (that is a 1.5 with Chicos), but I think that I would prefer the next size down better. If you are in doubt, size down, or if you are like me, order both sizes and then send back the one that doesn’t fit. Lol! These are super comfy, and you will enjoy the pull-on style. These also come in powder blue, white, and gray. You can check them out by clicking here.
