Fashion Over Fifty: Spring Florals

Hello!  Spring very briefly made it to Wisconsin (since then we got another snowfall and are currently back in the 20's and 30's)  so I took advantage of it by wearing this semi-spring outfit.  It was still too chilly to go without a coat, so I wore my quilted blush jacket last seen HERE to keep me warm.  I carried a mustard yellow purse.
 After years of only being able to visit a Francesca's store in Chicago or Minneapolis, one has finally come to my local mall.  Needless to say, I spent a small fortune there, and this was one of the pretty clothing items I purchased.  It is a sheer top with a beautiful vintage floral print.  I wore a pink tank top underneath.
 I wore light blue skinny jeans by MNG,  to keep the outfit from looking too feminine.  I completed the glam look with pink heels from Payless.   I usually don't buy shoes from Payless, but these were so cute I couldn't resist.  Plus, because the color is so trendy, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them and not get much use out of them, so to Pay Less made a lot more sense!
 I wore a layer of opal and pink pearls  mixed with a chain for jewelry.  It was a challenge to decide whether to even wear jewelry with this blouse, and also to find something that complimented it and not clashed with it, but I did.

 My Payless shoes! I love the fun color and the heel!

It may not look or feel like Spring quite yet, but I'm still going to dress like it!

Have a great day!  Amy
