My New Favorite Outfit: Ready for Spring

Ready for Spring


I totally feel like I have my feet in two seasons.  Yesterday I was staying warm in a fur vest and today I'm sporting bare legs and bright colors. In all honesty I'm not sure I know how to dress for spring.  My style has really evolved since starting to look at blogs this fall, and then eventually starting my own.  I finally feel like I'm getting a grasp on my winter style and now it's time to change.  Anyone else feel the same? 

In exciting news, I got a new camera, the Canon Rebel and I'm pretty excited about it.  My sister got one for Christmas and took a few blog post pictures of me with it and I could totally tell the difference.  I'm pretty excited that my husband without prompting said, what about getting you a new camera.  Nice.  I'm still playing around with it but really like it so far.

Fantastic Girl. You will receive many compliments from fellow teachers & your students today. I truly love it. <3 Ada.

  7. I feel the exact same, I have finally gotten my winter wardrobe to a somewhat stylish place and here comes spring. I too started following several fashion blogs in the fall and really revamped my clothing choices. Thanks for allowing us readers to follow along with your fashion journey :)

  12. I totally feel ya on the spring clothes thing.. I feel like I'm just starting to figure out dressing stylish for winter. I get so lazy in the summer because it's hot, but I know my usual go to of a sundress and flip flops won't impress anyone this year!

  13. I have the same shoes. I just purchased them at Famous Footwear this weekend. I paid $10.00 for them on clearance. I just wore them yesterday for the first time and they're SO comfortable.

  16. You look GREAT! I love the color combination. The turquoise is such a fun twist. How do you find such inexpensive things that look SO expensive? You're a talented lady!

  17. I love this striped blazer with the red skirt, great look! And I've been feeling the same way about dressing for warmer weather. I've really only been working on my personal style since late fall and I've already thought that I won't know how to make things look interesting without a whole bunch of layers! We'll have to figure it out as things warm up!

    1. Thanks Franziska. I hear yawn taking your own pictures, I hate to break it to you, but I take my own too. My hubby used to take them, but it's easier if I take them when it works for me :)

  20. I have that camera too and LOVE it!! I also love wearing bright colors in the winter, because sometimes the winter is too gloomy for me, therefore wearing colors brightens my day! Cute blazer!!

  24. Cannot go wrong with a striped blazer, leopard shoes, or a bubble necklace, and they're even better together. You look fab, and I'm jealous of the bare legs - though I do have that struggle every time the season changes, and I always find myself wondering what the heck did I wear every day last spring, because I can't figure it out now!
