A change of season…
We’re less than a couple weeks out from the official first day of Spring. Though it’s turned cool and dreary again, for a few days last week we were graced with some gorgeous blue skies and mild weather. Blooms and new green shoots are everywhere, and a neighbor’s pond is host to a nightly chorus of frogs.
I can’t help but feel optimistic about this new season, and (hopefully) beginning to ease back into the “normal” that we took for granted just a year ago. “Lighter and brighter” is how I want to dress now.
Linen and cotton sweaters are a mainstay of my Spring and early summer wardrobe. They’re comfortable in a range of temperatures, and usually washable.
This 100% cotton cardigan has a fun swing shape and looks good worn open or buttoned up. It’s available in 3 colors, in both Misses and Plus sizes. I purchased in the Muted Alabaster color, and was glad I’d sized down. The length is Petite-friendly; taller women might find it too short. It’s great little wear-at-home or throw-on-and-go sweater!
This pale salmon pink is one of my best colors, and I find it’s almost a neutral for me. This organic cotton and linen sweater is available in Misses, Plus and Petite sizes. Also in White. The fit is relaxed, but it’s lightweight enough to layer under a jacket. (I’ve also ordered this elbow-sleeve top in the same color.)
If you can tolerate wool, this crewneck sweater in lightweight Merino is an excellent choice. Several colors available in sizes XX-Small to 3X. (This is the sweater I was wearing during the live Zoom on Saturday.)
Casual but polished…
I’ve been on the hunt for some time for a pair of Polished Casual trousers in a light, warm tan color. I have these on order, and fingers crossed. They’re offered in several other colors too. Classic sizes 23-37, Petite and Tall sizes to 32.
I’ve been seeing a lot of variations on pearl hoop earrings. I like the irregular placement and shapes of these real freshwater pearls.
