You Are My Sunshine...

This weather just makes me happy...

I am not a big fan of summer...too hot and sweaty.  But, give me this low 70's, sun shining and low humidity weather and I am thrilled...and it is only March!!

This outfit came together very haphazardly this morning...but I love the end product.  When I bought this skirt, I though it was purple.  But, after a few wears, I think it might be brown.  Today, I decided to style it with purple and brown with a neutral light pink thrown in for good measure...love the poofy detailing on this sweater.  After today, I think these purple wedges need to go to shoe heaven...the rubber sole on both shoes are falling off and the insoles are worn out...RIP purple suede bows


No tights...boots...bundling in jackets and scarves.  Taking ten extra minutes each morning to warm up the car...making sure the kids are zipped up with gloves and hats...

I had a meeting with a more conservative client, so I figured I could get away with mixing the leopard print with the stripes since they are both in neutral colors... Added the pop of bright with a my tank top to break up all the neutrals.

My baby turns 6 in two days...I am in denial...

I completely agree. I like spring weather better than summer too. I'll even go as far to say I'll take 60s over 70s or 80s.

And I love everything about your Wednesday outfit! The puff sleeve sweater is adorable and chic at the same time, and I want to steal those shoes. It's too bad they're falling apart.

Mixing the leopard with the stripes was a great idea too!

Definitely love how you mixed so many colors/patterns together in your second outfit. I'm always afraid i'm going to get it wrong, so I don't really go into that realm. :) I know the weather in Michigan has been AMAZING! I'm just scared summer is going to be dreadful if it's already this warm. yikes!

I like the leopard and stripes together. The stripes are definitely fine with the leopard for work since they are so subtle!

Anne said...

Love your puffed sleeves! And the leopard and stripes, wow that's some great pattern mixing!

Isn't this weather amazing? I had bare legs and no coat when I went to work yesterday, which was such a nice feeling!

Great outfits! I love the soft color palette of the first one and the pattern mixing of the second. As always, you look very chic :)

Okay, that's IT! I need to go buy my some neon nail polish, yours looks GREAT!

I'm with you on the weather. Except I like the hot and sweatiness of summer. But I like the semi-warmness of spring just as well, especially when it's in March. Bring it on.

I think your outfit is perfect for both spring and that conservative client.

I love spring too but I don't mind summer. Both of these outfits are great, I love the ruffle detailing on the sleeves in the first one and the amazing pattern mixing going on in the second one!!

Ha, when you said, "My baby turns 6 in two days," I read soemthing about "my baby bump" and almost freaked out thinking you were pregnant! lol

I really like both of these looks on you! The pop of color from the coral tank is perfect with that 2nd look and I love all of the pink and purple and brown together in the first!
