If you haven't heard me complain much about the winter weather this year, it's because I haven't had much to complain about. It was such a mild winter in Wisconsin, with very little snow in comparison to previous years. I mean, look at the landscape behind me. It's March, and there's not a drop of snow on the ground and the river is not frozen. That's a miracle! I've already been out in my garden twice already, and I would have been out there more had it not been raining!
Well because of the weather, I've been itching to wear my spring clothes. This is an outfit I wore to a recent doctor's appointment when it was a gorgeous sixty degree day. The nurse saw me and commented on how spring-like I looked!
When the temperatures fluctuate from cool mornings, to warm afternoons, and back to cool evenings, I like to wear a summer top with a cardigan.
This is a loose, breezy tank top I picked up at Old Navy for only about $15.00 when they had their "40% off Everything" sale. Gotta love those sales! It has a pretty dandelion print on it. It's called a "Swing Tank" because it has a full, flouncy "swing" cut. It has a hi-lo cut, being longer in the back. It's made of a thin, soft, lightweight rayon, so it is very cool and comfortable. And it has a nice, relaxed fit which is attractive on all body types.
I like these thin sweaters because they are easy to roll up and tuck in my purse, or tie around my waist if I get too warm. They are also so light that they provide just the bit of warmth I need during the spring/summer months.
There are so many features of this top that I love! The keyhole back provides extra room and comfort for my ever-widening back (why do women's backsides get wider as they age anyway? I've read on several blogs now where women were complaining about shirts being too tight in the back/shoulder area and too loose elsewhere. That seems to be my issue as well). I love the longer length in the back. It's also nice and loose in the front (which I like cause it hides my tummy), but form fitting in the chest area. I read several reviews of this top on-line and some women said it was too tight in the chest. I consider myself well-endowed, and didn't find that to be the case, but it definitely is from fitting there. I did have a problem with the material buckling a bit above the bust line, but that seems to be a problem with most tops for me because I have narrow shoulders (yet a wide back). I know, my body is deformed. :)
I carried an old bright blue cross body bag by LuLu (old).
You might have seen a peek of this hairstyle on yesterday's beauty post. I put half my hair up in a back pony tail and added a lace white head band.
For jewelry I wore a coordinating coral earring and necklace set.
My shoes I picked up on clearance for only a few dollars. They are one size too big, which is an accident. I tried them on with thin socks and never looked at the size. When I got home and put them on (weeks later) over bare feet, they were too big. I was stunned, because they fit at the store. Then I realized my mistake when I saw the size. The only reason they fit at the store was because I put them on over socks. It was too late to take them back, and I only spent a few dollars on them anyway. But, I don't wear them too often because of the ill fit, and I only wear them when I know I won't be walking much.
They are by Fegalicious and have a cute little ribbon and bow detail on them, along with the little Feralicious crown on the side!
My pants are old above-the-ankle length jeans from Express.
Have a Great Day! Amy
