Spring is here! Spring is here! Yay! Yay! YAY!

I had so much fun getting dressed this week.

Day 1

This was the last frigid-cold day we had. Literally, with the wind chill, it was 10 degrees. AND I RAN IN IT. Three-point-six miles. GO ME!

Any-WHO. Then I got dressed and took my daughter to a doc appt. Wearing this. (I swear, I had makeup on. Not sure why I look so drab.)

The blue V-neck sweater felt cozy without being bulky, so I thought it was a good choice for a cold day in April. I wore it with dark jeans and my black leather jacket and black pointed-toe flats, and I thought the outfit was going to be cuter than it turned out to be, lol.  The whole look is just very dark. Oh well.

Day 2

This is the day the weather turned to spring. HALLELUJAH!!! I wore this outfit out to lunch with a friend.

Here’s how it came together: I knew I wanted to pair my yellow ballet flats with my white jeans. Then I decided that I should wear my denim jacket since it was a mild day, but I still needed something to wear under my jacket. I figured the magenta sweater would be a nice contrast. And of course my favorite green bag worked into the mix of bright colors as well. I opted for fun earrings rather than a necklace, but I think I should have gone the other way. It was okay with the jacket on but pretty plain when it was off.

I threw on some fun bracelets for more color. I paired a yellow bracelet with a gold spiral one on one arm, and then on the other I wore a this green stretch bracelet that pulls in the green from my handbag. I picked up both the green and yellow bracelets at Target last weekend.

That night I went out with some friends. Since it was evening, I knew it would be getting chilly. Plus I was in the mood to wear heels, so I just changed into a whole new outfit.

The Double Bead Cardigan in Pomegranate from Banana Republic is a fun springy color, but the long sleeves kept me warm in the restaurant. I went for bootleg jeans rather than my typical skinnies. They seemed to work better with my heels.

THESE are my favorite part of the whole ouftit. I scored these at Nordstrom Rack a few weeks ago, and I’ve been dying to break them out.

day 3

Saturday we took the kids into Philly to see a play at the Walnut Street Theater. It was a daytime play geared to kids, so there was no need to dress to the nines. I wore my red jeans with a black tank and this silver cardi that I finally brought down from the attic along with my other spring clothes. (It’s time to start changing over all our closets. YIPPEE!!!) I kept it simple with silver jewelry, and I wore this outfit again to church on Sunday.

Saturday night, my husband and I had a dinner date. I wanted to wear this fun top that I picked up at a local shop a few weeks ago, so I changed. I paired it with my dark skinny jeans and broke out my favorite dressy sandals for the first time this season. I felt like the whole ensemble needed some color so I grabbed this pink clutch.

I love the back.

Day 4

Monday I wore shorts. Oh yes I did!!!!

Suddenly it was 79 degrees, so I happy pulled out my favorite jean shorts and put them on with a black embellished tee from LOFT and my silver Reef flips. The bracelet is from Everyday Icing. If you like bling, be watching for a fun giveaway later this week!!

The earrings are Stella & Dot.

Black and denim is still one of my favorite combinations, and I love that I can accessorize with any color I like!
