Springtime, is that you?


 {chevron top & denim jacket: JC Penney | silk skirt: talbots via tj maxx | leopard flats: nine west | mint purse: target | compass necklace: gift from bbff Dani}



See that sunshine? It came after 2 days of freezing weather and snow flurries.  It was a welcome sight. I feel that springtime is very near, thus the bare legs.  Don't let me down now, March! Okay, now it's storytime:  My whole life (okay, maybe I am slightly exaggerating...) I have yearned for a perfect denim jacket.  I loved the layering aspect, the keep ya warm-but not too warm factor, and the way that they can carry over spring items in to pre-spring time!  In case you did not know, I am 6 feet tall... and with that height comes a six foot wingspan (and great hugs).  Finding sleeves long enough were always a problem, as well as fitting my broad-ish shoulders. Also, cropped on a tall person = under the boob area. WHAT IS THAT ABOUT?!  But alas, here we are.  It only took (almost) 25 years to track you down, but you are mine.  I think we will have a merry time, me and you.

Sneak peek:  I styled this ASOS animal print dress (below) THREE ways! I can't wait to share.  Hope you are having the best week ever! Spring break is so close, I can see it!

  1. Where'd you find the denim jacket? And I feel your pain in the sizing department. I'm short at only 5'2" but have broad shoulders. By the time I get something to fit the boobs and shoulders, it's boxy and makes me look like a football player. So frustrating!

    1. It's from JC Penney! All of my clothing details are always located under the first picture. Links sometimes, too! The sleeves are a tad too short but I like the rolled up look.
