I have very few cardigans however this one is still in the closet as a valuable addition to a spring wardrobe. It is more refined than some being a silk knit. Also up for evaluation is the pair of white jeans. They have a high rise. Keep? Cardigan, keep or donate? The jeans are Madewell and, if I keep, need a waist adjustment. Striped tee is old AT. Loafers are Naturalzer. Cardigan is old Jones New York. What do you think?

On a cold spring Sunday morning I brought up Angie's dress with moto jacket formula. Except for being a dress with a moto jacket, it does not actually fit any of her examples. The dress is Nordstroms BP, moto is Vince, nude mini-fishnet stockings, Aquatalia suede booties, bag is Liebeskind Berlin....all rather light dove grey neutral. Arm candy is three different friendship bracelets. Necklace is JJill leather, crystal and steel.
Would silver loafers have looked better with dress.? I felt warm and cozy even with the unlined light leather jacket .
Does the dress look too big? Suggestions and comments welcomed.
A neutrals outfit . Does this work on me? Worn to daily Mass and out shopping. Outside I put my olive jacket over all. Bag is a simple black back-saver leather bag/backpack. I used a smaller animal print cross-body for church. Bonus: bald eagle on top of church. Not a good photo with my old iPhone. Last photo is with scarf added.
I am continuing to comb the closet for green this week. Yesterday was a blizzard and I did not leave the house but did wear olive green jeans and a wooly warm faire isle sweater with olive green in it. ( see first find for jeans, last find for sweater)
Today I am wearing black jeans and a Vince olive cashmere sweater, nubby scarf with olive and turquoise and white. I wore waterproof grey hiking boots for snow and ice when I went out. Please overlook my slippers and unstyled hair in photos.
Your suggestions and comments are most welcome. I am not sure if I should even wear olive, but I like the color.
Day 5&6; scroll down
Today I wanted some real pattern mixing. Weather is chilly with a big snowstorm on the way so I hope to get out while I can and find presents for DS who has a birthday next week. We also plan to go to a new-to-us Italian restaurant.
This outfit is me because
1: hectic pattern mixing and leopard. I used to have blue leopard jeans too but they were purged because too low a rise.
2: white jeans
4: big navy bag for shopping
5: warm enough but not too warm indoors for shopping.
6: thrifted earrings, clearance cardigan
7: sparkly socks
The jeans are Paige Hoxtons but are a lower rise on me than the black pair I wore yesterday. Top is not sparking joy because it is polyester. It has been kept until a better version can be found. I have very little pattern for this time of year. I wish the jeans fit better. Do they look ok or should I get rid of them. I am very happy with the white booties but added sparkly cobalt socks for warmth when going out. I liked how the socks peeked through the openings in the booties. So not a complete win of an outfit for me, but a work in progress.
Sorry about the darkness of the photos.
Is the pattern mix ok? What about the half tuck version as seen in #1?
