Pink Stripes in Philly
Greetings, friends, and welcome back to 22 Days of Spring Fashion! Today I’ve got a casual spring look we shot in Philly a few weeks ago, and I’m super excited to discover this morning that almost everything I’m wearing is on sale!
This was the day we took my daughter and a friend to the Franklin Institute, and the weather was mild but rainy. I wore this pink striped sweater with mid-wash skinnies and grey ballet flats. I love the muted color palette for spring.
This striped boatneck sweater has been one of my go-tos this spring. I love the color palette and the easy fit, and today it’s marked down to $26.99!!!
For size reference, I have the small, and it’s plenty roomy. It does “grow” a bit as you wear it, but not to the point that it loses its shape. I front-tucked it during these pictures, but it didn’t stay very well so I ended up just wearing it out.
I wore mid-wash jeans to compliment the pastel colors in the outfit. I like the 29″ inseam with ballet flats — most ankle jeans are 28″, but the extra inch really elongates the leg when wearing shoes with a lower vamp. Of course, everyone is different; this is just what I’ve found works best for my short-waisted 5’5″ frame.
My jeans are an old AG middi ankle style, but this Paige pair has similar in measurements. They’re also on sale, but unfortunately only smaller sizes are in stock. For reference, I take a 29 in Paige jeans.
For a less expensive pair, this 1822 Denim pair is a similar color and also has similar measurements, although I’m not familiar with the brand so I can’t vouch for the fit and how they wear.
I’ve talked about this tote before. I absolutely love this bag. It’s a great quality leather, nice and roomy, and it has the covered magnetic closure that I love — so much more convenient than the snap closures you have to lined up. It’s currently 30% off with code WORKIT.
I topped off the outfit with my silver trench. I like how it goes with the grey flats and plays off the blush and ivory in the sweater. Of course I don’t always worry about matching my coats to my outfits, but in this case, it worked perfectly!
This trench is a couple of years old, and it no longer comes in the silver, but it does come in a traditional khaki as well as black and navy, and it’s 40% off right now! It’s very comfortable, and it also has a removable liner for colder days.
I personally prefer the single breasted style to the more traditional double breasted; I feel it’s more flattering and less bulky.
We got caught in a downpour on the way back to our car, and I was really glad my trench coat has a hood! It’s removable, though, so if you don’t like the extra bulk, you can take it off.
My aviators with the matte gold frames and pink gradient lenses were the perfect compliment to the outfit, and I added a long pendant necklace along with my go-to pearl earrings and silver link bracelet.
This turned out to be a great outfit for touring the museum on a rainy spring day. I was comfortable but felt put together, the tote carries a lot without being terribly heavy, and the lightweight trench wasn’t too bulky to carry around when I got too warm to wear it.
