Spring is my favorite season for fashion… Living in California, I can include items from pretty much every season – a fall sweater, winter jeans, spring tan, summer sandals and I’m all set! Last week J and I enjoyed a yummy alfresco dinner at one of our favorite spots Naschmarkt Restaurant, and I threw on this outfit.
California loves air conditioning inside, but we love to spend our time outdoors, so layers will always be critical. I continue to be obsessed with this military jacket, and love its light feel but ability to warm you up! If you haven’t bought one yet… get on it!
Accessories will always have a place in my heart… some of my staples are incorporated into this look – my GiGi cross body bag and my Chanel sunglasses.
This post is somewhat of a joke, because my plan was to put a cute green outfit together for any St. Patty’s Day celebrations… unfortunately this plan backfired when I realized the only green I have in my closet is one green work dress and some green aviators. Guess we know what color I should try to venture into more in 2014?
Hopefully this military jacket safely passes for a green? Anyway, with this spring like weather this past weekend, I was ready to break out some fun floral shorts for brunch with J. Florals are fun, but bright pink shorts can be a little overwhelming – here are 3 of my starter tips for incorporating florals into your wardrobe:
- Pair with masculine items – i.e. a military jacket, chambray shirt… I’ve even paired with a button up and blazer for a more dressed up look.
- Don’t shy from (1-2) fun accessories – I incorporated simple glitter sandals and a fun color bag… an accessory or two adds a fun element, just be cautious of overdoing it, so your outfit doesn’t look costumey.
- Have fun! I love wearing things that make me happy… nothing makes you feel better than sitting on cute little pink flowers… so what are you waiting for?!
