Welcome Spring



This weekend's weather was nothing short of heavenly - sunshine, blue skies & almost 60 degrees.  The snow is steadily melting away and I couldn't be happier or more ready to embrace the spring-like temperatures.  I was thrilled to be able to wear a skirt without tights and, though I'm still embarrassingly pale, it felt so good to head out to Sunday brunch with bare legs.  I planned on wearing this yellow blazer for an extra pop of color, but it was so warm that I ended up taking it off...can this be real?!






What I'm wearing:
c/o QuestHaven Fashions blouse (here; use code PPF20 for 20% off your order), White House Black Market skirt (via eBay; similar), INC blazer (similar here or here), Target satchel (here), ALDO heels (on sale here), ASOS bracelet (similar), Target sunnies (here), Nails: Essie Chubby Cheeks, Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Coral Berry

Great outfit! You have nothing to be embarrassed about--your skin is beautiful...no need to ruin it with a suntan or a smelly, orange fake tan :)

I'm always so impressed that you find time to get your nails done - I always have grand intentions, but then always end up never sitting still long enough to let my nails dry! This look is adorable - the black and white with the mustard and coral is not a combination I would have thought have, but it looks great.

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I love this! This is an outfit I would wear. This blouse is gorgeous.

yay for warmer weather, though I'm sure our opinion of that is vastly different. :) Absolutely love this black + white look; that skirt is such a good ebay find. Really love, and tempted by these heels (just $30?!).

I love this outfit. The print of the skirt and the color blocked blouse are a perfect match. I'm from Northwestern PA and was so thankful for the sunshine yesterday.

I love your whole outfit. Not surprised.. I always love all your outfits. But this one is especially cute. I love the black and white with pops of coral and yellow!

Oh and p.s. I feel you on the pale legs! I almost didn't want to post my outfit this morning because I saw how white my legs looked in pictures, and I have no excuse I live in Fl!

The black, white, and mustard is a super cute combination. I had planned on taking some spring blog pics this weekend and then it was a wind chill of 26... needless to say, that didn't happen! Lucky girl for some nice weather!

What a great skirt and the geometric pattern it has on it. It is very flattering on you. I love the way you added the pop of unexpected color. Gorgeous!

If you get a sec, check out my latest post 'Casual Meets Chic'. I would love to hear what you think of my new tweed skirt and how I styled it.

Hope you had a great weekend.

I am counting down the days until the spring really arrives here as it's supposed to snow this week :(
But the snow doesn't prevent me neither from planning my wardrobe for warmer days, nor from splurging on a beautiful bright blazer (or two :) Yours looks absolutely perfect, in fact your entire outfit is perfect, and I'm only a tiny bit obsessed with your bag! Perfection!
