What To Wear When Spring Is Slow To Come

Hello and happy hump day! Yes, we’re getting a foot of snow dumped on us today, but 22 Days of Spring Fashion must go on!

By the way, if you missed my Facebook Live yesterday, you can watch that HERE. In case you didn’t hear, I’m moving those live chats to Tuesdays, still at 1PM EST.

Paul and I shot several spring looks when we were in Nashville over the weekend, and I think this is my favorite, although that may have more to do with the location than the outfit… although I like that too.

In fact, I wore this sweater two different days when we were down there — one of the days we toured Nashville, and then for our travel day home. I wore it with blue jeans instead of white jeans, and for our trip home, I swapped out the booties for my grey travel flats.

This sweater is black and white (sometimes it looks navy in certain lights) and I love the whipstitched details and the blouson sleeves. I’m also happy to tell you that this sweater is 40% off the markdown price, bringing it to $36! (Use code NEWNOW.) For size reference, this is a small.

It paired the sweater with white jeans for a fresh spring look, and I was intending to wear it with my white mules, but when I put them together in the hotel, I wasn’t crazy about the white mules with white jeans so I threw on these booties instead.

Unfortunately my booties are sold out, but this pair is very similar; it’s even by the same brand. I like how this light taupe color works for spring.

These white jeans are my go-to. In fact, I bought a 2nd pair last fall when I saw them on sale because I’d worn my first ones so much, they were starting to look tired.

That said, I’m not loving my low-rise jeans so much anymore, especially since my weight is up a bit these days. I’m finding a higher rise much more comfortable, so I’m thinking of ordering these to try. I’m hoping to find them on sale at some point this spring. Both pairs are the same fabric content and ultra white color.

Reviews are mixed, but I find them to be thick enough. I do recommend sizing up one, though. I have a 30 in these and wear 29 in my other Paige jeans.

For a more budget-friendly option, this pair comes highly recommended, and with the 40% off right now, they’re under $50!

This bag is a new addition. I picked it up during the ShopBop sale, and I’m obsessed. The pebbled leather is super soft and supple, and I love the unlined interior, stud accents, and magnetic closure.

It has a divided interior, with a deep zipper pocket separating the two areas inside, as well as a slip pocket on the outside that is perfect for a smartphone.

The putty color works really well with the grey and blush tones that are trending this spring, and it’s a nice alternative if you want a light bag that isn’t stark white. It also comes in white, beige, and black.

This is the type of outfit I’m living in right now with this crazy cold snap we’re having. I has a spring-like vibe while still being practical for the current weather conditions… although I admit that I’m cozied up in a cashmere turtleneck and UGGs today while I watch the snow falling outside my window.

Spring will get here eventually, of that I am sure!

  1. Great outfit Jo-Lynne!  I guess our high getting up in the 50’s today, would be a welcomed set for y’all.  Are the kids out of school today?  I suspect Paul still has to go to work though.  As you are on the lookout for white high rise jeans, if you see any that are straight leg instead of skinny, will you let us know, please.  Stay warm and cozy today!

  2. Great outfit! And if I haven mentioned it before, the shopping links are so awesome because I rarely get a chance to get to the mall and find the deals. You make life so easy for girls like me!
    I am in love with this bag too. Everything about it is fabulous.

  3. Beautiful bag! I feel like I am finally learning when I find something I really like and it fits well to probably buy 2 (ie: the white pants!!). Sometimes it may be an investment, but when it’s something that you will wear on repeat and it fits well and looks great, it’s worth it!!

  4. I have this sweater. Love it with the white jeans! Am thinking about taking the plunge on the Paige white skinnies but would love to see a sale.

    1. Bloomingdales often runs sales on their denim, and Shopbop just had one so it will be a while, but they will run another one towards the end of summer. There are probably others. I think I got my 2nd pair at Saks Off 5th end of last summer or somewhere like that.

  5. I love this sweater but I’m in Texas and it’s time for me to stop buying sweaters.  🤭  

    I wanted to say I loved your post about the different necklines but now I can’t find it.  At any rate … I’ve always mostly worn crew neck shirts because of the comfort level of being covered up.  But … after reading that post I bought a v neck T-shirt and wow! I look so much better!  The only issue I have is (and probably the main reason I’ve avoided them) is most are SO low cut!  😕 But if I can find more that aren’t low I think I found a look that’s good for me!  👏🏻

    Thanks for keeping us informed!  And stay warm!  Sending sunny spring thoughts your way.   🌞💐

  6. Love your style. Also love that you aren’t obsessed at being skinny like some bloggers. That’s why we all love your blog. You are the real deal. Always look great.

  7. I got this sweater last week on your recommendation and wore it Saturday night out to dinner with jeans and black booties. Today we are expecting 6-10 inches of snow so not yet ready to pair it with white jeans. I swear by Loft jeans- i love the curvy fit but the modern fit works well too and they are so affordable and come in lots of washes. Spring cannot come soon enough!

  8. This transitional season is the hardest I think. Yesterday it was sunny but cold, so I didn’t want to wear flats with no socks, so opted for booties with no socks but they are suede and it was hard for me to wear suede booties with the sun.  I think I’m a little crazy about it.  Love your outfit but I know I wouldn’t be able to put my white jeans on yet.  Today is suppose to be sunny and maybe up to 60 degrees here in the Northwest(Oregon).  I heard your area was going to be hit by snow.  So many people out of power and having floods, its really too bad.  

  9. Hey Jo-Lynne I’m enjoying your spring fashions again through Cyndi’s blog. I love the sweater you’ve styled today such a cute sleeve . I missed the dress the other day you styled from Old Navy but funny thing is I tried it on in store but didn’t buy it lol but now that I see you style it I think I’ll get it and wear it with my converse as well 🙂 I’m so glad all this snow is missing where we are in Canada we will be getting wet stuff then rain … come on Spring 😎
    Have a great day

  10. Great early spring outfit! I’m heading to Loft today and will check on that sweater! Jo-Lynne, would you consider doing a post on how to choose metal tones on accessories ? When to choose silver-toned, gold-toned, rose gold and/or mixed metals? Are there certain guidelines to follow? When is matte or brushed metal better than shiny? And how about rose gold? Does it go with every color? Should individual skin-tone be considered when choosing accessories? And lastly what about pearls? They come in so many beautiful shades. I always think white or gray pearls should be worn with silver jewelry and creamy warm ivory pearls with gold. Can you wear pearls with rose gold? I’m so picky about this subject that I sometimes feel I’m limiting myself with my accessories.

    1. Hey Nancy, that’s a great question for the Asked & Answered feature in my email newsletter, or maybe a discussion in a Facebook Live. In short, I try not to over think it, but I also can get caught up in trying to match my metals. I’ll definitely address it in greater detail, tho!

  11. Love the sweater and white jeans (especially).  I have to agree with you on the higher waist pants….more comfortable, in general.  In fact, I’d like to see more brands carry pull on versions (no waist band gaps and more smooth looking around the tummy).

  12. I am usually between a Med and L in Loft shirts. Would you say this sweater is a little over sized so I cld make the Med work? 

  13. Those white jeans look amazing on you. I haven’t started wearing mine yet but looks like the weather is getting better so you’ve inspired me to get them out.  Also I was able to watch your FB live last night and enjoyed it. I really liked how you styled your hair and your makeup was flawless. You always look great but I kept thinking something was different. Maybe it was the weekend get away with your hubby 😉

  14. If it makes you feel today, it was bitterly cold in Nashville today–and spitting snow this morning! Love this outfit on you, by the way. 🙂

  15. I put all my winter clothes away when I started using my Spring capsule, so Ive been a liiiiitle bit cold this week!!! Wish I’d have kept a sweater like this in my capsule!!
