What’s that old expression about March, “in like a lion, out like a lamb?” The month has definitely lived up to the “lion” part so far. I have a few Spring outfits I want to photograph and share, but it’s been either too rainy, windy, cold, or all three on most days for the last couple of weeks.
The stripe tee is the Ahoy Tee from cabi (gifted) and I really like it, both for the v-neckline and the soft drapey fabric. You’ll be seeing more of this one! It runs a little large, IMO, so I sized down to the XXS.
Pattern mixing usually isn’t my forté, but this mix was a happy accident. I threw the scarf on at the last minute as I was headed out the door to meet my photographer, and ran into an unexpected downpour on the way. Fortunately, I’d stashed this old leopard print umbrella in the car a few days before.
The scarf was from Comptoir des Cotonniers in Paris. If you’ll be visiting France, it’s a brand/chain I recommend for cute and reasonably-priced basics (usually) in natural fibers. This one’s a cotton/modal blend (I think…removed the tag a while ago), so a nice lightweight option I’ll be able to wear well into Spring here.
This was one of the jewelry “bundles” (along with the earrings) I put together a few weeks ago. The slim bangle is a few years old from Alexis Bittar (similar) and the beaded bracelet is from COS, spotted during my shopping expedition with Brenda Kinsel a few weeks ago.
While I’m grateful for the rain, I’m also looking forward to a few warmer, sunnier days later this week.
Any patterns you like to mix?
