Green with Stripes











Occasion:

Hi from the Windy City! D and I are in Chicago for Pesach (Passover) with my in-laws. We've been spending time with family (my nephews, M & A and the cutest little boys ever!!), catching up on sleep and trying to digest all of our matzah (although, I'll be honest...I try to eat as little matzah on Pesach as possible...I eat just enough at the seder to meet the requirement and then thats it for me; bring on the fruits and veggies!).

This outfit is not from Chicago; it's in the 40s here and I had to unpack my tights to come here *not happy*, so here is an outfit from a week or so ago when it was starting to warm up in New Jersey.  I got this cardigan last year and really only paired it with solid colors and a very simple pieces. I wanted to branch out and try pairing the kelly green cardi with other colors and patterns. I decided to layer it over my nautical Breton stripe shirt and wear them both with my denim pencil skirt. I wore leggings for some warmth and broke out my oxfords for the first time this season. I finished off the look with a multicolored silk scarf and my cherry red bag.

Outfit:

White Undershirt: Pink Orchid

Striped Shirt: J.CREW

Cardigan: Banana Republic

Skirt: J.Crew

Leggings: Target

Silk Scarf: Elliot Consignment (Banana Republic)

Shoes: Zappos (Steve Madden)

Bag: Longchamp


What are you wearing as the weather warms up? What are you looking forward to wearing?
