Hello, my friends! Today was yet another gorgeous day. I'm wowed by the beautiful, warm, and breezy days we've been having here in South Florida. Spring has definitely sprung here and is starting to everywhere else so it seems.
I'm sure everyone is making their list of must-haves for the upcoming season which is only 22 days away! Woooo hoooo! To pick the right pieces for early Spring can be a pain in the you-know-what though because the weather can be tricky and fickle (70 degrees today and snow tomorrow in some places) for those weeks leading up to Spring and for a few weeks following the official start. It's important, for this reason, to add a few pieces that are light enough to wear on those warm days but also add a little warmth for those chilly mornings, days, or evenings.
This lightweight, duster cardigan is THE perfect Spring piece to add to your closet. The material is unbelievably soft and light but will keep any nippy air out. It's the most comfortable cardigan I own (and boy do I have a lot of cardigans).
Because it isn't heavy or bulky, it layers like a dream. I layered it here with one of my new favorite short-sleeve tops with the crisscross front in pink blush. This top is very comfortable and soft, and hangs in the most flattering way on the body but also is a great shirt for front tucking. It comes in a few colors, and I'm probably going to buy the black and white. But, the light pink is simply perfect for Spring and white denim.
The sandals that I'm wearing are from last year and aren't going anywhere. I love these sandals because the blocky wood platform with stud detail adds the coolest retro vibe to the shoe and is on trend again for Spring and Summer 2016. I was able to find them, but size and availability are limited. I added in few other options below that will be easier to find and hot right now.
Of course, I styled the blush pink top and oatmeal cardigan with white jeans. If you haven't noticed by now or haven't seen my previous posts, I'm obsessed with white denim. With the soft colors of the top and cardigan, white pants compliment them and are the perfect match to keep the look neutral. White denim capris, shorts, or skirt would be cute as well.
If you are looking for a great Spring transition piece and staple for your closet, I'd highly recommend this cardigan. It will quickly become one of your favorites. Have a terrific week, all! - Jill xoxo
