I hate to admit it but today, March 20th, is the first day of Spring!
A little background. Tomorrow, March 21st, is my birthday and growing up I thought it was the first day of spring. Technically it is the first full day of spring, but, depending on where you live, spring starts sometime on the 20th.
Either way, I’m ready for my spring wardrobe. The weather on the East Coast lately has been warmer than usual and I’m hoping to make the big wardrobe transition soon. In the meantime, I’m putting together some outfits for inspiration.
I’m ready for chambray and skirts…
1 – Old Navy Chambray Shirt, 2 – Vanessa Mooney Necklace, 3 – Vintage Mini Saddle Bag, 4 – J. Crew Skirt, 5 – Banana Republic Shoes
And navy dresses…
1 – Dorothy Perkins Dress, 2 – Kate Spade Bag, 3 – Top Shop Oxfords, 4 – Zara Belt
It’s winter. It’s cold. I’m over it.
So is my wardrobe.
Every morning I have to force myself to wear something other than black. Especially on the weekends, when I want to throw on black leggings, a black sweater and black boots. You’d think I still live in Manhattan.
For some inspiration, I headed to Poylvore. Ok, there might be a little black but I’m getting somewhere, right? Let’s hope I use this inspiration to switch up my outfits over the next few winter weekends.
Aren’t these the perfect black boot? Just perfect!
I’ve been lusting for them since I first laid eyes on them a few weeks ago. But it’s the holiday season and they are a little pricey ($298) so on my wish list they will remain.
I have a problem.
I once declared “leggings are NOT pants!” I refused to believe that this leggings as pants fad would last. I wanted to start leggingsarenotpants.com but it was taken. By a documentary filmmaker. No joke.
I told everyone I knew that leggings as pants was a horrible idea and it should be stopped.
Now, a short two years later, leggings are no longer just fad and all I want to do is wear leggings as pants! OK, not as pants pants but when I’m not at work, the first thing I want to put on my “riding pants.” They are from Forever 21 and the tag said “riding pants” but they are leggings.
I’m not entirely proud of this.
That’s my first problem.
My “riding pants” have seen better days and I fear I will never find the perfect
pants leggings to replace them.
