There’s two more weeks till it’s officially spring. But it looks like no one’s informed my older sister or these trees. We both love this orchard and the meadows too. There is an odd juxtaposition in this week’s outfit though. My outfit is very appropriate for school and very similar to my usual winter to spring transition outfits. I love mixing my warmer clothes and slowly bringing in a lighter style through hairstyles and makeup choices.
This wool blend grey top is deceptively heavy. It photographs as a very light and free material, but in reality … it’s a very thick and warm material. My sister bought this in the winter of 2009. Yes, it is eight years old now! We weren’t joking when we said we rarely throw away clothes.
I pair it with a long sleeve shirt during the really cold days, but just the top alone was more than warm enough for me on this day. It’s a nice warm material – sort of like a cute blanket. I really do feel all wrapped up in this top!
I’ve had these black booties on repeat now. I’m trying to get as much use out of them as possible before it’s too warm to wear them out. I know I’ll try to incorporate them into some night time summer outfits when it’s cool enough to pair them with a light cotton dress. Even though I have a special place in my heart for sandals, booties are admittedly my favorite style of shoes.
