Though we’ve had a really mild winter this year, I still can’t wait to pack away the heavy winter layers. I’m already thinking of new spring outfits to wear in the coming weeks, including this one and though I’d normally top this off with a black shoe (because hey, that’s mostly what I have), I decided to go with a cobalt blue suede wedge, because why not?
If anyone is wondering about the status of my Five-Item Challenge, it’s going pretty well (see widget to the right). I made a three-item purchase from J.Crew’s sale, but I actually used a store credit. In past challenges, I always excluded items I purchased with gift cards and store credit but this year I made a rule addressing it because I forgot I even had it! In the interest of being transparent, I’ve included it in the widget even though I’m not fully convinced that they should count. Slippery slope, I know.
A little slow getting into the swing of things, but I think I’m finally ready to get going! We’ve been fortunate to be having a relatively mild winter this year. Luckily that means that I some days I can wear outfits that are more “fall-like”, and get away with things I’d normally not be able to get away with during this time of year, like say, sneakers without socks! Yes, really!
I have purchased exactly two items of color this entire year, including this Ann Taylor Crepe Wrap Blouse in this gorgeous coral shade. If you recall, I also own a J.Crew blazer (similar to this Regent blazer) in the same color. This is by no means my favorite color, but I find it extremely versatile as it is complementary to many contrasting shades as well as neutrals. Not only that, it’s flattering on almost all skin tones.
