Mixing It All Up!

Hey everyone! As you know, I haven’t been shopping for a couple of months and I’ve been showing clothing items you’ve all seen before. However,  I’m starting to get to the bottom of new ideas! Have no fear, I ordered something online (ok, this!) and I should be getting it next week so I will be able to show you it in an outfit if the fit works.

I want to wear spring pastel colors right now! I don’t care that pastels are supposed to be for spring (sounds like an outdated rule that needs breaking!). I’m really over wearing black and gray, especially since I see that a lot here in the midwest in the winter! It’s funny how my color choices are so affected by the sky!

Yes, that’s melting snow on the floor!

Anyway, these pink jeans you saw a lot this fall. I love the button detail at the hem and the cropped leg. These will be nice transitioning back to spring and right now they’re only $28! I paid $99 last fall and they are available in curvy fit too! Seriously, if you are looking for pretty jeans that fit well in the waist these are yours!

My daughter/photographer and I are seriously goofing around right about now!

I wore these jeans a lot when it was starting to transition from summer to fall but I wanted to wear them now because of the pretty color. The cut of the jeans are more the looser-fitting girlfriend or boyfriend style so they wouldn’t look that great tucked into tall boots, they’d be too baggy. I decided to pull out my booties and wore matching black socks to keep my leg covered.

This blouse is from Loft from many moons ago but did you know Loft is now getting plus-sizes? I haven’t tried them out yet but it’s funny how every other brand considers size 16 to be straight size but Loft thinks it’s plus-size. Well, we’ll see if they have figured out that plus-size women don’t want to wear tents. I’ll do some scouting!

And this sweater vest you may not recognize because I removed the faux fur collar. Without the fur it’s easy to wear with a big scarf without the fur swallowing it up. It’s more casual without the fur collar but I love the look of the fur (and the feel! I’m always petting it!) plus it’s different than anything else I own so it’s fun trying to style it.

This leopard scarf is from last summer from Chico’s and I can’t find it online. I haven’t worn it much because it’s so big but once I tried it with this outfit, it was such a nice change from a turtleneck to keep my neck warm that I’ve been wearing it more often. If you follow me on Instagram you saw how cute it looked on Saturday with a simple black sweater.

Well, that wraps up this snowy winter pastel outfit today! I hope you’re having some bright skies where you’re at because we’re getting lots of snow –hence, the indoor photo shoot. It will be such a change when I get down to North Carolina in a couple of days!
