Glimmer of Spring


I braved the 46˚F spring weather, coatless, to take these pictures. Why is it still so cold?!

Do you ever plan an outfit in your head…only to have it totally fail when you actually try it out? I had planned to wear a green sweater with these jeans for a monochromatic look, but I didn’t check and see if the greens actually matched before planning it. They were the same value, but not exactly the same hue, to get all artist-y on you. The pants are more yellow, while the sweater was more of a mint.

But I love my bird-print shirt, anyway, and I haven’t worn it in a long time. My bird-print shirt and green pants are my attempt to add a glimmer of spring into my life, since the weather is failing to do so.

  2. I think this outfit is so pretty! That top is gorgeous – very Spring-y 🙂


  3. What a cute bird-print top! It looks cute belted like that 🙂

  4. You are so cute! I love this outfit! And your hair is adorable!

  5. It’s so great to find brand name stuff on the cheap – J Crew and AE are two of my favorite brands. This outfit reminds me so much of spring, between the fun bird print and the light colors. But I think my favorite part is that adorable mustard belt you added. Such a cute detail! Thanks so much for linking up for Thrifter Thursday, Maggie! I’m glad you did!


  6. I love this look! You look amazing in green!
