Waiting on spring and wearing what ya’ got

Hey y’all! First I want to say thank you to several of you who have been sweet enough to let me know you aren’t getting emails with new post notifications. I’m not sure why this is happening, but I’ve contacted the person who helped me with the change over and hopefully we will get it figured out sooner rather than later. Hang in there! I so appreciate you and your faithfulness.

So does anyone else feel like we’re kinda in a fashion holding pattern? I mean for many of us we’ve entered that time of year when we get up and it’s like the meteorologist is playing spin the bottle with the weather. Will be cold? Will it be hot? Will it be windy? Will it rain? Will it snow? One day it’s jeans, sweaters and Uggs and the next it’s shorts, tees and tennies.

I’ve heard from several off you that you are on a shopping hiatus. Some for Lent and others just because.  My hat’s off to you and I sure don’t want to tempt you?. I’m trying to wear things I purchased in the fall and shop my own closet. Here’s an outfit I came up with from a couple of basics and a floral top. I’m not going to link right to anything in the post. Most of the exact pieces are sold out with the exception of the sweater and booties, so at the bottom I’ll link to similar items.

This sweater is actually still available in 3 colors  and on sale for 40% off.  I’ve worn it over and over and love it for travel. Mine is blush (no longer available) and is such a beautiful color and goes with so much. I find myself grabbing this sweater A.LOT. The gray or tan would be a great alternative to the blush. This sweater runs large so I’d suggest sizing down. I did.

This cold shoulder top I got back in early fall is great transition piece. Even with the dark colors, I can pair it with white jeans and the same sweater as the weather warms up.


I’ve been trying to show these plum pants a little love. I’m such the jeans girl that most days that’s what you’ll find me in but these are Rockstars like some of my favorite jeans and really comfortable.

Are you shopping your closet? I’ve also been ordering a few things to style for spring, so stay tuned for that.

Have a great Wednesday friends!

    I need to buckle down and shop my own closet more often! It’s hard when all the winter things are on sale and spring weather is no where in sight for us though! Love those plum pants. They are such a great color!

      It’s not very fun…LOL. Yes, I agree. It’s hard to pass up a good bargain. Hang in there, spring will come. XO

      So weird! Thanks for letting me know. I had them change the address and it’s shown up once in my feed, but that’s it. I just submitted another ticket. Hopefully we can get it resolved. I’m having

    I’m glad Laura said something about your blog not showing up on Bloglovin right away. You can email Bloglovin about it – I’ve had to in the past when I had trouble with some of my pictures.
    Anyway, you look fabulous and I was just thinking about that cold shoulder top the other day – this is the perfect time of year to pull it out. Although we have had higher than expected temperatures here by 15 degrees needless to say I am NOT happy. 85 is crazy in February, I think we are going to burn to a crisp here soon!
    I am on a shopping hiatus when it comes to sweaters – no more for me even if they’re on sale. I just go the cutest one from H&M and I am dying to wear it. We better get at least one more cold snap or else. Or else what I’m not sure but I’m using my best mom voice when I say it and giving it the stink eye!
    Love ya friend!

      It’s the darndest thing. Phil notified them, and then I did too. I emailed again today, so hopefully it will get taken care of. I’m going to file it under growing pains. HA! XO

    Colored rockstar jeans are like a god send to me! I can get away with wearing them at work and they still have that rockstar comfort and fit! You look so cute!

    I’m still that cardi’s no 1 fan! And love the colour of those jeans. Like you our weather is all over the place, so mild and spring like, yet now we’re entering a polar vortex with possible snow! Oh, what to wear indeed! Hugs hun, x.

    Love your outfit! I’m trying to stay in a holding pattern to see what will be available once it’s really spring and only buy a few pieces here and there.

    • February 22, 2018 / 4:13 pm

      Thanks so much. It’ so hard to resist, but I hate to buy a bunch of stuff that I can’t link to next year. Happy almost Friday!

    Your floral blouse is gorgeous! The color is superb and I love how the pink florals just pop out! The weather is definitely playing tricks on every one – one day is warm and the next is freezing! It’s hard to get dressed especially if you had your heart on wearing something for that day and I normally plan my outfit the night before! Argh….lol ?

    Smart! i have been shopping my closet throughout most of the winter.. ( with the exception of some cute booties) but its about the time i get antsy for some Spring clothes.. so I have shopped the Loft sale recently. I love the blush cardi and the floral top on you, beautiful! I have heard so much about the Rockstar jeans.. maybe I need to try them!

      It’s hard to resist all the bargains out there. Bring on the colors of spring. XO

    • February 22, 2018 / 4:10 pm

      Thank you Ruth. This is a great blouse. I love that it looks tucked while being out in the back. Happy Friday Eve. ❤️

  12. February 22, 2018 / 3:41 pm

    Such a cute look with or without the sweater. Love the colors in this outfit and the top is perfectly a statement piece.

    • February 22, 2018 / 4:09 pm

      Thanks Carrie! I love a top that can be worn several ways. Happy Friday Eve. ❤️

    I always shop my closet. Some is still available but some isn’t. I can’t bare to see outfits hidden away. You’ve put together a fab one here! x

    • February 23, 2018 / 9:46 pm

      Thank you Maria! I need to make a concerted effort to do it more. Have a wonderful weekend! XO

    I follow you on Bloglovin’ and I think your posts showed up for me just yesterday… My posts sometimes get delayed on Bloglovin’ and I’m not sure why. It’s so frustrating! Most weeks they show up just fine, but every so often they’ll get delayed a bit… I LOVE that blush cardi/sweater… I wish the blush color was still available! Although, I love the floral top and those colored pants paired with it. Perfect colors together!


    • February 25, 2018 / 9:44 pm

      Thanks Carrie! You might keep an eye out on the Nordstrom site. It seems to come in and out of stock. Maybe you’ll get lucky!

    I love the plum pants… cute! I really want to buy a few new pieces, but we still have a couple feet of snow. So even though Spring is coming, it takes a bit longer to get to Montana. 🙁

    • March 1, 2018 / 9:59 pm

      But it will get there?. Enjoy Arizona and pretend it’s spring. XO
