Lightening up

I’m enjoying the spring sunlight and somewhat warmer weather the past two weeks. And it makes me want to wear lighter colors. So here’s a few outfits that were attempts at wearing lighter colors the past several days.

#1 Black dress over white jeans, with a grey cardigan and shoes.
#2 Sage sweater with a navy under layer and back/navy checked trousers.
#3 Cream and black striped sweater with jeans and light shoes.

All outfits are fairly sparse, but that works for me at this point in my style journey. Not complicated, easy to wear.

    Best practices in wardrobe building and wearing certainly include “easy to wear”. All look great, and I especially love your shoes.

    Love the white jean outfit most. Good way to lighten up.. we are still about 3 months away from warmer weather and spring-like weather with April the month with most snow and snow the last few years in May. Flowers struggle.

    Amiable - all your outfits are lovely. I am wowed by your hair, lovely out and long and edgy tied up - you get the best of both worlds.

    I can't believe how long your hair is! More than anything, this shows me how long I have been away. I love the lighter outfits, especially the one with the striped sweater - I'm doin the same thing today but wish I had worn lighter shoes.

    You look great! Love these all, and the dress over pants in particular is right out of Angie's spring trends report.

    the striped shirt outfit is further wow.  

    it feels like spring and optimism.
