A GOOD TOP: AS NECESSARY AS A GOOD FRIEND

Details: Pink bell sleeve top via Marshalls, similar here | J. Crew white denim pants, similar here |

I feel like I talk about the weather in every outfit post I write. Maybe that’s because it’s absurd that we’re still experiencing frigid temps in April. Regardless,  I’m trying to figure out my spring wardrobe, while maintaining my sanity. I’ve begun to care less about what I wear and more about staying comfortable, which is a dangerous game. I’ve recently stocked up on a couple long sleeve spring-themed tops, one being this bell sleeve top from none other than Marshall’s. It has become one of my favorite tops. Like I always say, (but have really never said until just now) a good top is like a good friend. It makes you look good, it’s reliable and it never judges you for any winter weight gain–it’s true! In an effort to summon warmer temps, I pulled out my white denim pants and some peep toe shoes…in case you were wondering, that didn’t work. Right now, I’m focusing on my wardrobe for my upcoming vacation to Charleston, where I can guarantee I’ll be surrounded by sunshine and bare arms and legs. Until then, I’ll be living through outfit photos in which I suffered through to take during, yet another cold March day.

APRIL SNOW SHOWERS BRING…?

I may have gotten a bit too cocky about the spring weather being here to stay. It doesn’t look like I’ll be wearing my sunglasses or sleeveless tops for a little while. The forecast calls for rain AND snow, and I’m beginning to regret leaving my chunky knits in Jersey. Thankfully, I didn’t completely lose my mind and kept some necessary sweaters to get me through this brief cold stint. I’ve had this sleeveless brown open cardigan for quite some time now and to be honest, I never knew what to wear with it. I bought it on a whim and didn’t think it through. I layered it over a long white dress once and Josh said I looked like Apostle Paul… so that’s where that went. But when I was home this past weekend, I decided it was time to give it another try. I layered it over my standard jeans and t-shirt and I think it’s just the oomph my go-to look needed. Plus, Josh didn’t have a snarky remark–I guess that means it looks normal? I don’t know about you, but I’m SO ready for the weekend. I’m also kinda relieved that I don’t have any travel plans, just looking forward to a relaxing weekend staying put and I think is look allows for just that. Unfortunately, I’ll have to swap out my short tee for a long one… but c’est la vie I guess…

Happy Friday!
