Wearing: Short Sleeves and Long Flares
This is the last day of spring break so I'll be over here crying just a little bit. Why is it that when you have one week off it feels like a day but the work week feels like it drags on for a month? This week went by so fast and the most productive thing I did was throw out some old issues of Harper's Bazaar. But isn't that what spring break is supposed to be? A break from the usual routine? It's a chance to relax and recharge and I think I'm about halfway there. Only sixty something days until summer! In the mean time, since it's spring, it's time to start that awkward transition between the cold spring and the almost-summer spring.
This outfit definitely bridges the gap between it being truly warm and those still chilly spring days. I've worn this short sleeve and flare jeans outfit more times than I can count. So when I found out that I'd never shared it in all it's casual and perfect glory, it had to be the first outfit post for the month of April. This tunic is so simple but the mix of textures from the ribbed sweater to the rolled sweatshirt material for the sleeves keeps it interesting.
Mixing up proportions is also my new favorite experiment for spring. I'm tired of wearing leggings and skinny jeans with longer tops. Smaller flares, like my tried and true cheapies from Forever 21 or these ones I'm obsessed with from Madewell, look amazing when paired with a longer and flowing top. Flares and loose tops is all I want to wear all through the spring. So yup, I'll be saving my pennies for those Madewell jeans.
