THIS OUTFIT WILL HAVE YOU LOOKING STUNNING THIS SPRING

I love these outfits. But, because a major section of the country is in a deep freeze, I had a hard time making myself post them. But, I am very limited on photos since it has been so cold, and I don’t like going outside to take my photos. My nose turns red and starts to run, and that isn’t anything you want to see. Lol! So, turn up the heat or add another blanket, and let’s start to dream about when spring arrives, and the temperatures start rising.

I have been so tired of looking at the same old winter clothes online that I practically did a jump for joy when I saw some colorful new arrivals hit the stores. Many of the winter items are limited in size and quantity since the stores are trying to deplete their inventory. Several of you have complained that you can’t purchase the exact items that I am wearing, and I know how frustrating that can be.

I plan to only purchase items from the “new arrival” portion of the stores, but even that isn’t foolproof. Since I have to order all of my clothing, instead of going to a store to purchase the items, it takes time for the turnaround process. Maybe, once we started staying some at the new house, I will be able to purchase some things in a store! Can you even imagine???

Honestly, I prefer buying online for several reasons; they have a greater selection, more sizes, don’t have to be around people (COVID is real), don’t have to get dressed up, and can stay warm inside my house. However, for days when I am running low on clothing, it would be great to go to the store and grab a few items.

I go through cycles when it comes to color, and I’ve loved a vibrant pink/Fuschia/orchid range of colors lately. Every time I see something in these colors, it somehow finds its way into my shopping cart. The great thing about that is, I end up with a lot of mix and match outfits. This short sleeve v-neck t-shirt is one that I ordered from Target, and it goes great with the paisley cardigan I just bought. That happens a lot because I buy the colors that I love.

I ordered my tee in a color called Dark Pink, but the website only shows Pink now. It might be a shade or two lighter, but it looks almost identical to me. I am wearing a size medium, and I am surprised at how much room that I have. The tee also comes in several other colors, as well as some tie-dye colors.

Once again, I went with silver jewelry for the most part. Aren’t you proud of me for my willingness to try something new? The silver Fallyn hoop earrings are currently sold out; however, I found lots of them on sale at eBay. Just be sure to check out the seller’s ratings before you place your order. I am also wearing my horizontal cross necklace with cubic zirconia stones and the Shine script necklace that I love right now. I did mix and match my metals when it came to my bracelets. The Maggie filigree bangle and the Natalie hinged bangle bracelet are both gorgeous, and just a tiny bit different.

The Natalie hinge bracelet is a new arrival, and I love this bracelet, even more than the Maggie that I’ve worn for a long time. There are two big differences in the bracelets. The Maggie is a bangle bracelet, so it slides over your hand, while the Natalie has a clasp closure that allows it to be opened. Secondly, the Maggie is a circle bangle, and the Natalie is oblong. This matters to me because the circle-style bangles bother me while I am typing, but the oblong doesn’t cause as many issues.

When I first saw this colorful paisley print cardigan, I was intrigued. But I didn’t order it for some reason. Finally, I decided to order the cardigan at the last minute, and I am glad that I did. I don’t know about you, but I think that the cardigan looks better with this pink tee under it than the top that the website shows it with. Remember, when you are looking at any item online, try to picture it without all of the other pieces before you order.

I am wearing a size medium in the cardigan, and I think this size fits me great. For a close-up of the cardigan’s colors, see the photo below.

I’m not sure if pattern mixing is still a thing, but I had ordered in this floral scarf, and the colors were the same as the cardigan. So, I thought that I would add the scarf for you to see it for yourself. I did a quick little loop tie with the scarf, and I’ll put that video in my Instagram stories. This scarf will go with so many things this spring and summer, and it will brighten my style and mood every time I put it on.

Since I added the scarf, I decided to change the earrings that I was wearing. I took out the Fallyn hoops and added the beaded Josie hoops instead.

The 100% leather saddlebag is adorable. I love the quilted navy suede flap with the gold buckle detail. The flap features a magnetic closure and interior zip and slip pocket. The long leather strap can be adjusted or a shoulder style or left long for the crossbody look. I love this bag’s size, and the colors will go with anything this spring and summer.

I like the jeans, but these white crop flare jeans steal the show. Many of you might not have tried the crop flare look before, but it is a modern look trending the season. This trend looks good on almost everyone, and it doesn’t matter as much about your body shape. What I like about these jeans is that you can’t see through them. The pockets don’t show, and hopefully, your panties won’t show either. Please remember to wear nude panties and bras, so they don’t show through your clothing, especially if you are wearing white.

I sized down one size in these pants, and they fit me great. When ordering from Talbots, I have learned always to size down to get the fit that I want.

Here is the “from the back” look for you. The white pull-on sneakers are going to be perfect for spring and summer. They are super affordable at under $15.00, so you don’t have to worry about them getting nasty. Throw them in the wash or order in another pair next year. These slip-on sneakers also come in Leopard print, and you know that those are calling your name. Lol! I ordered my usual size, but they are a smidge too big. You might want to order two sizes in and send back the one that you don’t want.

I forgot to link to these skinny jeans. These are the medium wash, and I am wearing a size 10 in them. The jeans are under $25.00, so they are affordable and look great at any time of the year.

Joe didn’t like the look with the medium wash jeans first; then he decided that he liked this look the best. My favorite look is the one with the white jeans, but I am interested in hearing what you liked the best.

BTW, I have decided to do random “prizes” for those who are signed up as email subscribers. “SIRI” chose the winner from the comments left yesterday, and the winner was Mary Jo!!! If you haven’t gotten my email, be sure to look in the spam/promotions folder.

I also like the down-to-earth chattiness of your interesting posts and how your email always arrives early.

    Hi! I like the first outfit the best. I like it better without the scarf. And I definitely like how you styled it better. I don’t like it with the striped top on the Talbots site. Neither the stripes or the paisley pop.

    I like the skinny jeans and may order some but I do have to figure out what styles of jeans I have. I like the white crop flares on you but they don’t look good on me. I don’t have thin ankles.

    I am not sure how long I have subscribed to your emails but I would say 2 years since it was before COVID. Love getting the reminder.

    These colors look great on you. I prefer the fit of the white jeans, but being 6′ tall I always have trouble with cropped pants (unless I actually fold longer jeans up, for some reason). On the other hand I really like the color combo of the blue skinny jean, but I’m not a fan of skinny jeans in general and from numerous fashion blogs and articles in multiple fashion magazines it seems skinny jeans are on their way out. There are a couple of reasons for this: they’re not particularly flattering unless you have a “perfect” thin body-type and they’re not very comfortable unless there’s significant stretch to them, but that often leads to unfortunate bagginess in the butt and knees. I think slightly looser straight, boyfriend, or girlfriend jeans might be more flattering. I know many women love their skinny jeans and they should certainly continue to rock them if they do. I’m just pointing out that if you’re someone who wears them to be on-trend then you might want to try a different fit and find ones you love, then go rock those. I also love the blue suede loafers!
    I’ve been subscribed to your emails for almost a year and love what you have to offer and how accessible you are. Keep up your inspirational writings and posts!

    Hi Tania. What a great, bright outfit. The colors pop, especially with the white slacks. I went online and bought the tunic you modeled yesterday. It is so pretty and versatile. I found your makeup vides on YouTube. They are terrific. I enjoyed the 5 minute makeup video and will probably use the techniques frequently. Enjoy your new home. It is beautiful. I do think exterior shutters would add to the curb appeal.
