Ageless Style - Spring Forward

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.

  1. I love the pop of color with the purse. Your top reminds me of my favorite yellow top which one of my favorites and is on the blog today.
    Looking forward to more brights this month.

  2. What a great transitional look, Amy! That embroidered yellow top is so darling and the perfect color for "springing forward"!


  3. Such a pretty top and loving how you paired it with the black pants. It looks perfect for this time of the year! And loving the trench coat. I have a similar one my sister gave me several years ago.

  4. The top is so pretty, Amy. Thanks for the pep talk about shopping TJ. Sometimes, I feel like I don't have the patience for it. Gorgeous bridge local for your photos!

    1. Thank you! I've always been a fan of TJMaxx for their home goods but I never had much patience to look through their clothes. That is starting to change for me!

  5. That's so funny because I'm all about changing out the boots for spring too. Yet I don't want to totally put them away because I love pairing them with dresses (and NO tights...haha)
    Love the yellow of your top, Amy!!

  6. I love your yellow blouse!
    We had a frigid 30' weather over the weekend and now it's 60 degrees outside..

    1. Thanks! Yes, the weather can jump up and down a lot this time of year.

  7. Thanks so much for linking up with me at my #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 10, open March 1 to 26.

  8. I love this sunshine yellow blouse! It's such a great spring-y piece.

  9. I marveled at how well your hair looks even outdoors!! Mine is always all over the place - especially out doors!! I usually look like my toupee has slipped or I am sporting a come-over. Heavens. And PC always seems to capture my hair at its worst when he is taking pics.
    Love your sunny warm yellow top. And those black shoes are very cute, very chic. My wedges are among my most comfy shoes. Have given up on most of my high, high heels. Waaaa!

    1. ha-ha! I have no idea how as the wind was coming over the bridge and blowing my hair everywhere! But thank you. And I can't wear high heels anymore either. I've given up on them. If they are not comfortable, I won't buy them.

  10. Very pretty Amy! I love the scalloped edging on your blouse and that soft butter yellow color on you! Perfect as we approach Spring. Coral, your bag color is one of my fav Spring colors too! The trench coat looks so stylish on you! If I lived in a colder climate I would own one for sure! Fun post-love the surroundings!

    1. Thanks Jess. I'm so jealous you live in such a warm climate you don't even need a trench coat. They're not that warm.

  11. That is the prettiest blouse! I just love the sunny color and fun scallops!

  12. Such a pretty color and pattern on you! Have a great weekend!

  13. What a chic and cozy look on you dear. Love the coat!
