Happy April ladies. I spotted two random rosebuds in my garden yesterday and the bees are starting to show up which is a sure sign that spring is here. Our temps are teasing us with the low 80’s signaling that it’s time to shed my neutrals and bring on some color. Today’s outfit includes is a pair of yellow casual chinos that are custom-made for a spring day.
After the year we’ve had, we could all use a dose of something happy and there’s no better time for that than springtime. I saw a lady wearing these chino’s last week and knew I needed to try them. She was rocking her casual chinos with blue gingham sandals and let me tell you, she looked amazing! I found the ones she was wearing and have them on order… so for today, I’m dialing the look down with my comfy platform sneakers.
SHOP METALLIC SNEAKERS
When the weather warms up, heavy denim can be too warm so casual cotton chinos are a perfect alternative. These relaxed chinos come in 12 colors. After seeing them on the gal with the blue sandals, I couldn’t resist the yellow. It’s a happy color and goes with so many things. These pants have a nice amount of spandex in the fabric which makes them super comfy. Stretch is everything to me these days…especially in pants.
These are available in petite, regular, plus, and plus petite. I’m wearing a 6 petite which feels a bit too roomy through the hips so I would be better with a 4 regular or petite. I like the hem cuffed up for a sporty vibe that’s perfect with sandals or sneakers. You could also unfold them for a slightly more polished look. The lady I spotted was wearing hers rolled down with her sandals.
I paired them with this cheery blue sweater that’s embroidered with bees…very appropriate for the season, don’t you think? Napoleon chose the bee as the emblem to represent his status as emperor. I love bees because they symbolize activity, wisdom, hard work, and being industrious. They also pollinate more than a third of our crops so we would be in big trouble without them!!
It’s a lightweight cotton blend that’s super soft and thin enough to layer under a light blazer or denim jacket if you wanted. I love that the stripes line up at the side seams and sleeves which is a good indication of high-quality workmanship. It’s available in petite, regular, plus, and pus petite. I’m wearing a medium petite so it runs TTS. The three-quarter sleeves are great for spring, provide a fun option to showcase our bracelets, and also help us look taller.
I’m a huge fan of wicker and rattan bags for the warm weather and have been collecting unique ones for years. I couldn’t resist this painted wicker bag with the painted leopard print. I’ve never seen anything like it! The blue lining has a zipper closure on top to prevent everything from flying all over the car …says the lady from experience:)
SHOP WICKER BAGS
A metallic sneaker (budget-friendly option) is a fun alternative to color for spring. These have a highly cushioned footbed so they’re super comfy. The platform is also a nice touch because it gives a tiny boost to my height.
Let’s go out and make it a great day ladies and be sure to wear what makes you feel confident.
