Spring Pastels

I’m not sure about the rest of the country, but at least in Illinois, it’s been a pretty cold, wintry spring. We had 80 degrees in February and then March and April were back  to the frozen zone. I have high hopes for May and so far it’s not started out too badly — just a little on the chilly side, which I’ll take after the snow and cold, hurricane-like weather we’ve been having.


Because of the chilly temps, a lot of my outfits for spring have been ones that are easier to make warm by throwing on a jacket or cardigan. Today’s look is no different, with a scarf to keep my neck warm and the later addition of a gray long cardigan that I’m not wearing in this photo.

Source Info:  Scarf: Loft, sold out (similar); Blush Long Sleeve Tee: Gap, sold out (similar); Jeans: Mavi Alexa Ankle Skinny; Boots: Target Perforated Suede Peep Toe Booties, sold out (similar); Bag: Urban Expressions Virgo Satchel from DSW, sold out both there and at Urban Expressions — the only similar thing I could find is the Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel that is a lot more expensive than the $49 I paid….


This scarf is nice because it really can work for any season, not just spring. It’s got pastels, but darker colors, and the watercolor pattern is pretty versatile.  Plus, it helps keep my neck warm on these ridiculously frigid wonderfully breezy spring days. Trying to be positive here. 🙂


As always, everything I’m wearing is teacher-friendly. The shoes are infinitely walkable and I can move around easily (and wave those arms if needed) just fine.
