WIW: April Showers

So grateful for the spring weather (which is including rain!)

Here's my outfits for the beautiful spring weather of the past two days.

#1 Today - burgundy short-sleeved sweater with gray jeans, white belt and plaid sneakers (in gray, burgundy and white).

#2-3 Yesterday - navy short sleeved button-down with white boyfriend jeans.  I tried them rolled and unrolled - wore them rolled at home, but unrolled them in the evening when we went out for a little date.  My daughter especially liked the strappy denim-blue sandals.

What do you think?  What should be improved?

    Hi there, Amiable!  It's raining here today too....very cozy if you work from home!  You look great in all three, but I have to agree with your daughter that I like the one with the strappy sandals best!

    Those are some great sneakers and fun book-ending with the top.  I like the second outfit rolled, shows off the fun sandals better.

    I really like the second outfit a lot!  I like the pants unrolled better, not sure why, although I think they both work.

    I long for it to be warm enough to wear short sleeves!!  It got to 70 on Sunday and then plunged back into the 40s for a high. *sigh*  But at least we got a taste of spring!

    You are super cute in #1. Your RATE casual style is quite unique Amy, and it suits you and your lifestyle to a tee.

    I love outfit 2 and your cute shoes in it! Enjoy the weather!

    Wow - Thanks Angie! And others too!

    So fun to have 'a style' :)  And I do feel like RATE and casual are practically the very definition of my life.  I'm thrilled that my style reflects that.

    Eeee! I love your plaid sneakers!

    Lol Rachy, me too! You look great in both renditions Amy.

    I like them both! I do prefer the white pants unrolled, but not sure why. Perhaps one more roll would look better? Maybe it's the high vamp and high contrast of the sandals that's not working with the roll as is. (But I do like the sandals!) I agree you have started to really hone your style.

    I really like #2 - looks great on you and has a nice spring vibe!

    Both outfits look wonderful on you. I like the semi-tuck of 1 and shoe/shirt book ending of 2.

    Great outfits! I love #1! That colour suits you so well.

    Oh I love #1, you look so cute! Those sneakers are awesome. For #2/3 I prefer the unrolled version BUT if you did the roll a bit thinner and higher I think you'd be onto something there; you want the hem opening to be less wide. I think that one might need a little extra something too, like a metallic belt or perhaps try pairing with a hi-low type top.
