Teal, Stripes, an a $200 Giveaway

Today's outfit is one that I am so loving. It was inspired by Tara and I absolutely love it.  I had it mixed in with my fall and winter pins, (I think she wore it last fall) but after putting it on, I can totally wear this again this spring and summer.  I love outfit that can cross seasons. Speaking of spring, I'm ready, especially to get to wear spring dresses like this,  but every year time I'm anticipating a season change I feel a weird closet scramble of "Oh, I need to wear this again before it get's too cold/hot."  I have have the same scramble on my Pinterest boards.  I look at all these outfits I want to wear and have to figure out a way to fit them all in.  Tell me I'm not the only one who experiences this???

Also, I'm super excited for Jenn and my Style Swap link-up that starts this Friday.  Check on the details on how to link up here.  I can't wait to see your posts!

  1. You totally look ready for spring (which I really need today)!! Love the stripes!

  2. I love the color of your blazer! I wish spring was on its way!

  3. I feel the SAME way, and now I feel better about it because you're in the same boat. That feeling is actually what's keeping me from buying more things. I think "I don't even feel like I have time to wear what I love that's already in my closet; how do I have time for new things? Just stop it." So, I'm trying to make sure that anything I get is a season changer. Is that a thing? And all of your posts with this teal blazer really make me want to add one to the collection. Some people collect stamps; I collect blazers. At least I can wear my collection?

  4. How funny, I'm wearing a teal blazer with black and white stripes on the blog tomorrow! :) Love this look!

  5. Love this!

    And I'm right there with you! I am SO ready for spring and all those light flirty dresses.


  6. Love this colour combination. Loving the teal blazer with the black and white dress. Perfect pop of colour.


  7. Great outfit, and it will easily transition to other seasons! It's making me think of spring right now! (as we are currently on our 5th snow day of the year)

  8. I love the color of your blazer! I'm pretty sure by the time it's Spring, I will have worn ALL my winter clothes!

  9. Yay, love your recreation! I just looked back at that pin and realized how tan I was...makes me so sad now lol

  10. That is a very cute outfit, and you are so lucky you could rock bare legs!
    I think I need to make a list of winter outfits on a must wear list - since my mind (and often pins) are gravitating towards spring now, I might neglect some good winter ones in an effort to satisfy my need for spring fashion and also freeze to death in the process.

  11. This outfit is so cute on you, and I agree that it's a perfect transition outfit! The pop of teal is so refreshing in this winter dreariness.


  12. Love this dress and blazer! Such a gorgeous look!
