Last day of February? Time flies when you’ve got a growing to-do list looming over you. With spring on the horizon (only 20 days away — put it in your iCal!) I'm slowly, but surely starting to work in spring wardrobe essentials. (Knowing how spring in Virginia goes though, I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of winter yet. I like to call it sprin-ter.) And that’s where today’s #OOTD comes in.
What better way to make the transition from winter to spring than with a lightweight Madewell knit sweater (I’m obsessed with the pinkish coral hue!), skinny jeans (cuffed ‘cuz I'm borderline petite) and lace-up ballerinas? Give or take a little peekaboo tulle trim. I know this outfit isn’t particularly fancy, but goodness knows I'm a sucker for a dialed down look that works overtime on the weekend. Since I know that tulle’s having a bit of a moment, I paired my oversized sweater with a frilly hem tank top that I’ve had for years. The result was a little bit girly, a lot femme — and definitely sophisticated. For accessories, I opted for a simple gold horn necklace and an Old Navy bucket bag that never fails to fit the bill.
Last but certainly not least, let’s take a sec to chat about these olive suede flats (also from Madewell). They’re. Literally. Perfection. I got them on sale on a whim, but never imagined how comfortable/amazing/foolproof they’d be. Not only was I able to break them in during the first wear, but they’re extremely versatile with jeans, denim button-front skirts — you name it. Sometimes the ties have a way of unraveling over the course of the day, but otherwise, they’re < insert praise hands emoji here >.
Okay I lied, one more thing. Can we all just agree that a good hair day shall *always* be documented? Lately, I’ve been all about peppy ponytails. They’re fun, girly and immensely underrated. Throw in a bow hair tie and I'm pretty much on cloud nine. Sue me for my obsession with bows — they may not be for everyone, but you can definitely count me in.
