The Ageless Style Link Up- The first Monday of every month a group of over forty fashion bloggers pick a monthly theme and show different ways of styling it.
I don't know about where you live, but spring is in the air even if the ground still has a little snow on it. We have been enjoying very mild temperatures here in Wisconsin. It was a gorgeous 50 degrees on the day we shot these pictures, and it's expected to be in the 40s and 50s all week! Hooray! Spring is almost here. Shelly's theme of "Spring Forward" could not have come at a better time.
For the "Spring Forward" challenge I am showing that I am "springing forward" with color, a classic trench, and shoes that are NOT boots! I am always so excited to lose the booties and boots and start wearing pretty shoes and sandals again, aren't you?
Everything I am wearing in today's post is old except for the top; but as usual I will link up to similar items at the end of the post.
This stunning, hand made top is by Solitaire and I found it at TJMaxx. I have been shopping for clothes at TJMaxx a lot lately. You have to be patient, dig, and frequent the store regularly, but if you do, you are sure to be rewarded with a great find. I just love what a unique piece this top is.
The slightly mustard yellow color with the white embroidery is perfect for spring and cooler summer days. I love the scalloped bell sleeves.
My earrings are also handmade and made of rattan. They are so lightweight that I can't even feel them when they are on. They make a great statement without pulling down my ear lobe.
The top has a beautiful scalloped edge.
Because it's kinda still winter in my neck of the woods and I wanted to keep my spring look more "transitional" I wore my new top with old black ankle length pants from Stitch Fix. But I can't wait till the weather warms and I can try this top with my light blue cropped pants or white denim.
I chose these black suede wedges because I'm not quite ready to expose the toes yet!
To add even a bit more color to my outfit, I carried a coral bag by London Fog.
On my wrist, I wore a large jeweled bracelet (old).
It's still cold enough that one needs a jacket. I chose this classic trench that I purchased at TJMaxx years ago. A trench is something everyone should have in their closet. It's a great investment piece as a classic trench never goes out of style.
And now, be sure to check out all the spring fashions the other ladies are showing and link up your own outfits below!
Have A Great Day! Amy
