Spring Fever

3.16.2012




H&M pink blazer (similar look here)
C&A silk floral shirt
Forever 21 silk skirt
Vintage two-tone kitten heel pumps
C&A yellow sunglasses (we love these ones from Topshop too)
Thrifted woven straw box clutch (similar style here)


This outfit epitomizes Springtime for me, or at least my overzealousness for the weather to warm up already. For one, check out my pale legs--which I of course didn't notice while wearing this as I was too excited by the great weather outside. They've got to go immediately.

Then there's this blue skirt, which I love and haven't worn in years. It needed a quick once-over with an iron, but because I was too anxious to get outside into the sunshine and grab a coffee with Micol, I wound up setting the iron heat too high and burning a corner of the waistline. Lame.

Despite all this, I was happy to have a chance to wear my new floral shirt and fun yellow shades that I just bought in Paris at none other than C&A, a random department store that always yields some great inexpensive finds if you have the patience to look. And I can't wait to bust out more warm weather staples from my closet soon... though this time I'll be more careful with the iron.

What are you looking forward to wearing this Spring?

  6. I love spring but in my place is still to cold not to wear sweater, jacket and scarf.
    But I hope that spring comes soon to me! I'm looking forward: shorts and shirts wearing without jacket and of course sunglasses!
    Besides I love your look specially blazer and clutch!
    kisses

  7. The skirt is so pretty and looks gorgeous with the patterned shirt Lauren! This spring I can't wait to bust out a few new pastels I've bought, despite the fact that I was the Pastel Teen Queen in the 80s ;)

    Btw your legs look fabulous, don't look pale at all!!!

  25. Even though this Brooklyn weather is deceiving, it's still spring in my mind! Which means Pastel Pumps & Fun Coloured Lips (Just posted about it, check it out if you get a chance :-) )
