My friends over at The Blended Blog are hosting Week 6 of their Style Perspectives series. This has been a fun way to see how different ladies style the same general “assignment.” This week we’re styling spring sweaters + jeans + flats. Sounds like fun, right? Right!
Springtime here in Savannah means a high likelihood of 20-degree temperature fluctuations each day, so it’s all about LAYERS! Even when temps go up and stay there, we still often need quick layers to combat the air conditioning indoors. That’s why you’ll usually see me with a sweater year ’round! (Check my purse! That’s usually where I stuff it!)
In my first outfit I’m wearing a fun, boho-feel, wrap shirt with a cardigan. I just purchased this shirt last night at New York & Co. at my local Tanger Outlet Mall, and I’m looking forward to wearing it a LOT! Here I’m wearing it with a bright blue cardigan and my trusty, red, Clark’s flats. These shoes feel amazing! I recommend them for folks who like or need a deep toe box. (Arthritis, anyone?) I like Clark’s European look, but I know some folks think their shoes are clunky looking. Ah well!
In this second look I’m wearing a navy and white striped t-shirt with a red cardigan and my glittery gold princess flats! I decided to add gold hoop earrings, bracelets, and tassel necklace to play up the whole “gold” thing. Adding a fun scarf–nautical, maybe?–would be an easy way to change this up.
The sweater + jeans + flats formula is a super simple recipe for great outfits. You could mix and match all day with just a few basic pieces. For this spring I’d like to add pink flats and a pink cardigan to my wardrobe. I don’t wear a lot of pink, but I’d like to use it as an accent color. Those two items would add a LOT of fun, new twists to the basic pieces I already have!
Is this an outfit formula that YOU like? Leave a comment and let me know!
