Our average daily temperatures the past few weeks have been 38 to 48 degrees. But in February we were blessed with a rare respite of 60 to 70 degree daily temperatures. That lasted for about a week, and then we were hit with three snowstorms. We can still experience snowstorms mid to late April. So how does someone who lives in such a fluctuating climate dress for spring? If you read THIS POST, you would know that I decided no matter how cold it got, I was done with winter clothes and would only wear spring clothes until summer time arrives. On the day I wore this outfit (March 23, three days past the first official day of spring) it was only 38 degrees and this is what I wore.
All the colors are light and spring-like, yet I'm dressed in long sleeves and layers for warmth. I have a white tank top on under my floral blouse, but what really helped me to stay warm all day was the scarf. It's just a light weight sheer scarf but I couldn't believe all the extra protection it provided against the strong cool spring winds.
My denim jacket is new this season. I just picked it up at JCP. I already own two denim jackets, but I was never happy with one of them because it felt uncomfortable in the back/shoulder area and the sleeves were too short. So I decided to invest in a new one, and I'm glad I did because now I think I will actually wear it more often since it is so comfortable. I also sized up to a size Large so I could layer underneath comfortably.
My floral top is several years old and is from The Gap. If you'd like to see it in more detail, you can see it on this post HERE. I styled it very similarly as I did today except with my old denim jacket, striped pants, pink scarf, and white sandals.
I chose a striped scarf on this day to play down the florals in the blouse and also to have a little fun with print mixing.
In my last fashion post I mentioned that I bought a lot of new pants this season. I wanted all my pants to be stretch denim and at least mid-rise (preferably high rise). This is another new pair that I picked up at TJMaxx. I thought the light blue color would be perfect for spring.
My white cut-out booties are a couple of years old. I bought them from Francesca's. Always check out their shoes any time you're in one of their stores, because they have some unique pieces. Every single time I wear these booties I get compliments. They are quite the attention-getter!
For jewelry I just wore simply white studs earrings and my usual rings.
I don't know what it was about this outfit but the day I wore it I got so much attention and lots of compliments. Maybe everyone is just aching for warmer weather and appreciated seeing some spring colors.
Have a Great Day! Amy
