As a fashion blogger, there’s nothing I love more than inanimate objects. Yea, I said it. I wouldn’t say I love them ore than human beings, most of the time, but these objects hanging in my closet definitely bring me an unhealthy amount of joy.
This past month has been absolutely exhausting and unfortunately my little corner of the internet here was the one that got put on the back burner. I only published one other post in march. ONE. That’s crazy town to me, but I also think I had to give my self a break. March is always a bleh time for me and I honestly wasn’t feeling inspired. That was until a little package from Banana Republic showed up at my door step. This is going to sound really dramatic, but trying on this lilac sweater and these green fringe heels for the first time instantly revitalized me. Maybe it was the fun, spring colors, but I started to feel like myself again. I know, so dramatic (but true!).
It’s crazy how something so insignificant as a piece of clothing can totally change your mood and presence. I honestly couldn’t wait to wear this outfit, even if it wasn’t *the most* weather appropriate choice. I guess we can call that spring fever. I’ve been dying to break out my boyfriend jeans from hibernation since the week after I hid them away last winter. I decided their grand return to my closet would be an outfit paired with these two spring pieces for an easy, transitional look.
I love pairing sweaters with lightweight denim or shorts, and the lilac color of this Banana Republic one is perfect for this time of year. It’s a cashmere-blend a.k.a. extremely soft and just slighty oversized for a comfy fit. I’m wearing a size small, FYI! What I love about this look (and boyfriend jeans) is that they can be easily dressed up or down. I obviously went the dressy route with these awesome green fringe heels, but I could easily swap them out for sneakers or flats. The green is not a color I would normally pick out for myself, but I just loved how well it paired with the lilac. Now if only we had some consistently warmer weather, we’d be all set!
