Coffee Talk / Instagram Roundup
Happy First Day of SPRING!!!
As it turns out, the bru-ha-ha about the snow was all for naught. So far, we got nuttin’. Not even rain. In fact, it’s a beautiful morning.
The current forecast says we might have a few flurries tonight, but I don’t think it will amount to much. By mid-week, we’ll be back in the 60s. At the moment, Easter weekend looks chilly, but I wouldn’t expect anything less for a March Easter.
So…. Womp! Womp!
I should have known it would be a non-event. It seems like anytime they hype something up, it turns out to be nothing. NOT that I’m complaining!!
I took this picture as I was running out the door to church last week. This Lucky Brand top is old; I picked it up a few years ago in a local shop, and it’s always a spring favorite.
Ignore the boxes and clutter behind me. I’m in the process of moving out my winter clothes. I dropped a big stack of sweaters off at the dry cleaner’s yesterday, and my closet is starting to look thinned out again! For a while there, with 2 seasons worth of clothes competing for space, it was starting to feel crowded again. I hate that.
After our 27 Days of Spring Fashion is over, I’ll share a picture of my spring closet with what remains. I’m not doing a capsule again, but I am being quite selective about what stays and what goes so I can keep my closet manageable.
This chambray and white outfit is one of my faves from this spring series. This combo has been done many times, but I love how the leopard flats keep it fresh. Get the full outfit details HERE.
And this is what I actually wore the day of that photo shoot. I felt like it was too early for white denim, so I switched to my olive cargos.
I posted this selfie yesterday morning on my way out for a photo shoot. Denim and black never gets old. The Dolman V-Neck Top is from White House Black Market, and it is super cute on. It comes in other colors too — some with stripes. I went with basic black because I like to get a new black top each season. It goes with so much!!
The details on this pastel yellow and white outfit are HERE.
This is a selfie from St. Paddy’s Day. The green top is from LOFT last season. I hope they come out with something similar this year because I really love it, and I’d love to grab one in another color.
I threw this on one rainy day last week. The Paige Verdugo mint skinnies are on sale right now at Bloomingdales! Don’t miss their Denim Days Sale — save 15% on one denim item and 25% on two or more!!!
Earlier this week, I went to see The Sound of Music at The Academy of Music in Philly.
I LOVE living so close to a city with awesome theater opportunities, and this historic old building never ceases to charm me.
This is what I wore.
The details on this outfit are HERE.
As a follow-up, the blush jeans are from American Eagle Outfitters. I had high hopes that I had found a budget-friendly denim brand that I can recommend, but I tried the 8 and the 10 (wearing the 10 above) and neither fit quite right. The pocket placement is a bit off and doesn’t do my rear view any favors, plus the 10 feels too big and the 8 feels too small.
Last night, my mom and I went to the mall for a couple of hours, and I picked up the Paige Verdugo in soft pink on the Bloomies Denim Days Sale for 25% off (along with some jean shorts for summer!!) I pulled them on, and it was like coming home. They feel like skin. I guess I’m just hopelessly devoted to my premium denim. Ha!
This is another shot of that Dolman V-Neck Top. I was trying out a few outfit combinations for my next Payless sponsored post (coming soon!!!)
Finally, I picked up tulips yesterday in anticipation of the First Day of Spring. White tulips are my favorites!!
And that’s a wrap! I have a busy day ahead. I’m hoping to go for a quick run, then there’s church, brunch out with my fam, and and then my daughter has a vocal performance this afternoon. I know she’s got all the nerves going on, but I really hope it’s a good experience for her. Say a little prayer for her, if you think about it!
Have a beautiful Sunday!
