Shades Of Pink & Shop My Closet Week 10


Welcome to the second week of Style Perspectives!  Thank you so much to everyone who helped make the first week successful by joining our link up.  To see the top viewed looks, head over to The Blended Blog.  And be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for an exciting giveaway!

Today we're styling Shades of Pink.  Which is one of my favorite colors, so I had lots of fun choosing an outfit.  And then it started raining.  And raining. And raining.  Which is normal for spring time in Seattle, but made it difficult to go outside and take pictures.  I finally gave up, and decided to share this outfit that was featured last month with Carrie on Create28.


My brother gave me this Ann Taylor blouse for Christmas.  Actually, I'm sure his girlfriend picked it out, because a true gift from my brother would definitely include a camo print.  I added a leather jacket and boots because....Seattle. And my favorite Wit And Wisdom jeans.



I have now reached week 10 of shopping my closet.  I never thought I'd say this, but I'm getting really tired of sweaters, and you're probably getting tired of seeing them.  The spring styles are calling to me. Must stay strong.


Wednesday



Except for the moto boots and owl necklace, this entire outfit is an Old Navy extravaganza.


Saturday


What happened to Thursday and Friday?  I'm pretty sure I got dressed both days, but I can find no photographic evidence.  Hmm.  I wanted to wear this buffalo plaid scarf before it got too warm, but I failed.  Between the turtleneck tunic sweater, vest and scarf, I was boiling hot in five minutes.

Sunday


This lace shoulder sweater is the other part of the Christmas gift from my brother.  Since he was coming over for dinner, I thought I'd wear it for him.  Of course, he'd already forgotten that he bought it for me.  Brothers...sigh.

Tuesday


I'm out of words.  Another sweater, another scarf.  Is spring here yet?

  1. All of these are really cute outfits! I know what you mean though, I'm getting tired of wearing sweaters too. It was almost 70 degrees yesterday and it was so nice to wear a top and sandals!

    1. Oh, 70 sounds so wonderful! I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon!

  3. Ha ha. Your brother is funny.

    It is going to be 17 here today which means no jacket required, maybe just a light sweater. I'm ecstatic considering we had a huge snow storm only a week ago.

  4. Very pretty pink floral top and I really like how you styled it. Love the softer shades in your plaid scarf and I can see it being a great piece for transitioning into spring.

  5. I remember that lace shoulder sweater from when you originally wore it (maybe last spring?!) I love it, it's such a pretty piece.
    The blouse is super pretty on you too!!

  7. I was very impressed with your brother's choice. But you are probably right, it was chosen by his girlfriend!

  8. I know,right? We could most certainly do with some sunshine up here in Vancouver, too! I grinned when I read your comment about the buffalo plaid scarf. Same thing happens to me all the time. Looks chilly, don the scarf and head out. Man alive! Far too hot. And yet, the rain continues to fall. I am taking comfort in the daffodils that are springing up though. There's hope, Lana. There's hope.

    1. Oh, I hope you're right. Our daffodils are up, but at this point I think they're drowning.

  20. I didn't know you were in Seattle. My husband is traveling there for work next week! I wish I could go with him as I've always wanted to see Seattle. I just love that red houndstooth scarf!! I have a similar lace shoulder top, but in blush.

  21. Lana - I am with you - I am so tired of sweaters. I am ready for a change of wardrobe (now if new spring items would magically appear in my closet)! Sunday is my favorite look.
