In Monday's Fashion Post I mentioned that my husband and I went to North Chicago to see my daughter and son perform a gig together. While there we spent time in this beautiful little church garden. It was so gorgeous, but COLD!!!! Those Chicago winds stayed true to their reputation and cut through me like a knife.
I already showed you the outfit I wore to their concert HERE, this is the outfit I wore to spend some time with them in the morning before heading for the long car ride home.
Because it was so cold this day, I wore a thick white nautical sweater (it has a little anchor on the chest), a tank top under the sweater, a scarf with hummingbirds on it, and a white jean jacket.
I always like to be comfortable when spending long hours in a car, so tight blue jeans are always out of the question. I like to wear loose fitting pants with elastic or drawstring waists.
These cobalt blue cargo pants I picked up at Express years ago. They have both a zipper, button, and a drawstring waist. They are a loose fit, and a cotton material. They are very comfortable, but because of their extreme casual look, I only wear them at home or when traveling.
They have pocket button flaps on the derriere that I am always ironing to stay down. Why do pant pockets always want to curl or flip up anyway?
My hot pink cross body bag that my daughter gave me for Mother's Days coordinated perfectly with the cobalt blue pants and white jean jacket.
It was sooooo cold taking these pictures. My husband kept telling me, "You look cold, pretend your warm!" Keeping my hands in my pockets for most of the photo shoot helped. But I couldn't wait till we got a few descent pictures so I could run inside and get warm. Ahh spring...one day warm, one day cold... it can drive a person batty!
This outfit is a great example of dressing to look like spring, even when the weather is freezing. All the colors are spring like, plus certain elements in the outfit also scream spring...like the hummingbird and sail boat anchor.
Have a Great Day! Amy
