THIS OR THAT, PINK AND GREEN FOR SPRING

Does time seem to go by faster when you are on vacation? I can’t believe that we’ve been in Belize for six days. It is beautiful here and the weather has been perfect. Even though I’ve worked several hours each day, I have still found plenty of time to relax and enjoy just chilling.  Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is wearing a feminine pink top with green pants from Kohl's11

I don’t think this will be my last trip to Belize, the people are so nice and it is helpful that they speak English. If you love snorkeling, diving, or fishing, then Belize needs to be on your bucket list. My daughter is off exploring, and I can’t wait to watch her videos. I’ll be sure to share those with you, probably on YouTube, so you need to make sure that you are following me on that platform. Click HERE, pick a video to watch, and then hit the FOLLOW button.

Last week I did a sponsored post for Kohl’s, and I created several collages. This Smocked Flutter Top by Draper and James RSVP is adorable. I’m obsessed with this line from Kohl’s because it is at a better price point than Draper and James. The RSVP line is only found at Kohl’s, but they have a good assortment of items.

I love the flutter sleeves on this top, but if you aren’t fond of showing your upper arms, then a pop of denim jacket or cardigan on. The smocked neckline gives the top fullness, so even larger chested women can wear this top. One of my larger chested friends complains that she looks like a tent when the top hangs, so a half-tuck will help to alleviate that issue. I’m wearing a medium in the top, and it fits great.

Here is an up-close view of the smocking and flutter sleeves. While I am showing this up-close look, I’ll share that I’m wearing the AVI Hoop Earrings and my 18 Kt. Gold Vermeil Cross Necklace that I wear daily.

Kelly Green is a color that I love wearing in the spring and summer. I start wearing it around St. Patrick’s Day, and I don’t stop until fall arrives. I have lots of Kelly Green tops, but not any bottoms. When I saw these Roll Cuff Skinny Jeans, I couldn’t wait to try them. I’m wearing a size 8, and they fit great but are the tiniest bit tight. If you are between sizes, then you might want to size up.

Now, let’s get to THAT outfit. I’m still sticking with green bottoms in my second look, but you could switch them out for pink, white, denim, or whatever else strikes your fancy. The Embroidered Shorts look like lace cut-outs. I was worried about being able to see through the holes, but the shorts are lined, so that isn’t an issue. The shorts have a 3 1/2″ inseam, which is a little shorter than the 5″ length I prefer. I don’t know if it is the scalloped edge or what, but these shorts look longer than 3 1/2″ to me. So that you have a reference point, I am 5’6″ tall. I hope that helps you figure out how the shorts would look on you.

You can see the length of the top and the length of the shorts in this shot.

Espadrille wedges are what I wear in spring and summer when I want a dress/casual look. They can be dressed up or down, and they look great with dresses as well as shorts. This Slingback Espadrille Wedge is by Tom’s, a company known for giving back. I saw a lot of mixed reviews on these shoes, but I found them to be comfortable and true to size.

I mentioned that the shorts were lined, but I forgot to mention that the flutter sleeve top was also lined. Both layers are lightweight, but you can’t see through the shirt, and that is the point.

Last but not least, let’s talk about the Coach Lori Shoulder Bag. I love the chalk color, and I think that it is great for spring and summer. However, it is on the expensive side, so I’ll also link to some similar ones that are at a slightly better price point.

Now for the hard part, do you like This, or does That look the best? I have an idea of what you will say, so it is going to be interesting to see if I am right.

    Love both outfits on you! Totally cute. You inspired me to try on these items at Kohl’s yesterday. They did not look good on at all. I could stand to lose a few pounds and try again later on. I love the green and pink combination though!

    You look cute in both. I’m not a fan of a yoked top like that because I’m in agreement with a few other gurls that it just looks too maternity, but….if you promise to half tuck it than I go with the top and slacks combo. And did you guess right at what we would think?

    I Like the outfit with the pants. Love the top but not a huge fam of the short and I’m not a huge fan of the green pants but I could see wearing the tops with jeans or with pink colored pants to match the darker pink print in the flower, not the light pink flower color.

    You can rock both looks! But I’d have to go with the pants. You’re weight loss is inspiring, I need to get to work on it. You look fabulous.

    Neither outfit although I like the green long pants but not the top or the shorts – they are too short and too busy for that top. Enjoy Belize.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the green jean with this top. I would not have given the green shorts a second look at the store because eyelet and scallops seem too girly for me, but they are adorable on you. Those shorts are the perfect length!

    I love the top with the long pants. I do love the shorts although not with that top seems to be too much going on in the pattern of the shorts. But, I would definitely find a another top to go with the shorts.

    I love pink and green together but for some reason I’m not loving either outfit. Someone commented on it looking a lil maternity. That might be it.

    This! The top is so adorable and looks so cute on you. I like it best with the green pants which are also so cute. I think the pants make it look more sophisticated.

    I bought this same top after seeing your Easter outfits here on the blog. I think the pattern is darling, but the armholes are just huge on me (I ordered a M which is my normal size). Did you run into this? Thank you!!

      No, I didn’t have an issue with that. I do have other tops that fit like that, when that happens I will usually wear a camisole under the top.

    I love both looks! You are looking so great! Given my age, I prefer the longer pants! LOL! Do you need a passport to travel to Belize?

    Hi Tania,
    I don’t usually comment but I have to say you look amazing lately! Not sure if new hair cut ( which isn’t that new any more) , your makeup or you mentioned having lost weight recently. All three? Have you been on any type of weight program?
    I love the pink and green outfit!

    How pretty!! Love the pink and green combo. I would choose to wear the pants instead of the shorts, simply because I prefer a more modest look.

    The shorts are absolutely adorable on you! The top is cute, but it kind of has a maternity look to it, even with the tuck.

    Both looks give a nice spring vibe. However, I prefer THIS – the look with the pants. I prefer the frilly, girly top with the more refined pants. The shorts combine two busy garments in one outfit. I like outfits that allow one garment to be the star. The shorts and shirt combines two “star” garments in one outfit so neither gets to shine. Also, I LOVE the scalloped eyelet shorts but all the shorts I’ve ever seen in this style are way too short. Why can’t they make shorts like this in a longer length?!

    I love the pink and green combo as well! I prefer the pants. The shorts are super cute– for me, I would wear a plain top (vs print top) with the shorts since they have so much texture—(that’s just my personal style) HOWEVER– BOTH outfits look amazing on you!
