27 Days of Spring Fashion: Green & Coral

Well, this is it! Welcome to 27 Days of Spring Fashion! Cyndi and I are teaming up once again to bring you a new spring outfit every day (except Sundays) during the month of March.

You’ve probably seen this green sweater already. I’ve been wearing it a lot. It’s perfect for this time of year, when it’s still too cold to put away your sweaters, but you want to look fresh and ready for spring.

This sweater is on sale for $49, which is an amazing price for cashmere. It’s super soft and cozy. It is pretty true to size; if anything, it runs a bit big. I’m wearing the small. My only complaint is that it tends to pill, so I invested in a sweater stone a few weeks ago. It works great.

I wore this sweater with blue jeans to go shopping in Nashville last weekend with Cyndi, and I was stopped at least twice in the mall by someone complimenting the color of this sweater. It really is the perfect spring green.

To update this sweater for spring, I paired it with my favorite white jeans and these adorable perforated ballet flats in a bright coral. It was a dreary day when we shot this look, but it’s hard to let the weather get you down when you’re wearing bright coral shoes!

Perforation is a huge trend this year. I even wrote a post about it! I love how that detail elevates these traditional ballet flats and keeps them current.

I have these shoes in the nude leather as well as the leopard, and they are THE most comfortable ballet flats I’ve ever put on my feet. I highly recommend them. They’re in the $100 range, so they aren’t cheap, but they’re great quality and they will last years. That said, we women like our options, so here is a less expensive pair that also has some arch support. And for a non-perforated option, these are super cute for $29.

For those of you with finicky feet who struggle to wear flats, Vionic makes a similar pair with arch support. If you’ve tried any of the Vionic flats, you’ll have to let us know how you like them.

These jeans are my go-to white jeans. I love how they fit, and they’re thick enough that you can’t see through them. I do recommend sizing up. For a less expensive option, I’ve heard good things about the white jeans at LOFT.

Because it’s been too chilly to run around without a coat in these here parts, I wanted to show this outfit with a trench coat. I really like this shorter version in a classic khaki.

I always buy my trench coats with a hood because I hate to futz with an umbrella, but sometimes you don’t want the extra bulk, so I love that this one has a removable hood. It also has a zip-out lining that you can use on really cold days.

Another great option is this Halogen trench that is on sale for $129. It comes in beige, black, and a gorgeous coral if you prefer a bright color.

Finally, I’m wearing the Tala necklace and earrings from Stella & Dot. I don’t usually do the matchy-matchy thing with my jewelry, but I like how these look together. I think the mosaic detail is so pretty. The earrings are a 2-in-1 style, so you can actually remove the chandelier and wear them as a little drop earring.

This is the kind of outfit I like to wear while I’m waiting for spring to get here. In Philly, that can take a while! I’m warm enough to be comfortable, and the colors are cheerful and spring-like.
