Casual Outfit for Spring: What I Wore

Happy Thursday ladies and welcome to spring. Brrr. Last weekend was warm enough to wear new sandals, sun hat, and a cotton tee. This week? Not so much. We’re back to windy, rainy and crummy. Yuck. I’m more than ready for warm temps.

For a day of errands on Tuesday, I wore a casual outfit of neutrals with a pop of color.

I’m loving black with pink in all derivations this year so I wore black jeans, a white tunic, and my new hoodie. It’s technically pomegranate, but close enough.

I squeezed into my softest, most forgiving black jeans, #vacationpadding, a cozy long-sleeved tunic and topped it with this happily colored hoodie from Artful Home. I wore pom-pom earrings, open back mules and grabbed a bright pink handbag.

Sadly my first hoodie got destroyed when I splashed bleach down the front. Does that mean I shouldn’t do laundry? Just sayin’. So I was thrilled to see this casual outfit of pink hoodie and black jeans on style blogger Jennifer Connolly

The fabric is a waffle texture that’s lighter weight than their previous jackets so it’ll be perfect when the warm weather arrives. Cypress Hoodie from Artful Home styled over black jeans for casual look The Cypress hoodie is part of Artful Homes’


This runs a bit larger than Fenini’s previous knit jackets. I’m wearing a medium and could easily have worn a small. The length is several inches shorter than this Bee Jacket but still plenty long to wear over leggings.

Are you a fan of bright colors on gloomy days?

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

  1. YES! This the colour I’m talking about! Dreary days call for bright colour. I would wear all of this in a heartbeat!

    Great outfit! And I love this color on you

  3. Jennifer, the pink lipstick looks beautiful on you. Pink is a great color for you. I am wavering about the jacket. Here in the DC area we go from 30 to 80 in a week, so I am not sure how frequently I would get the wear it. Hmmm?

  4. Love bright colors on chilly spring days. This outfit is great! I like the color and style. And the pompon earrings. Very perky and fun?
    Mules are a problem for me … I tend to walk out of them somehow. The art of walking in them for an entire block without losing one, eludes me. I know how chilly and blustery and wet CA springs can be ( but I love them) so my feet would be uncomfortably cold in those shoes.
    I’d want a soft bootie. And warm socks. And a fun umbrella.

  5. What a bright and fun color! I still can’t get myself out of booties and sox, my feet are freezing! I’m ready to start wearing my cute loafers and flats.

  6. I love the outfit…the scarf picks up the bright colours perfectly.

    You are right the black jeans look super with the bright pink.

  7. Such a great color on you, Jennifer! It helps you look vibrant despite the weather!

  8. Does the white tunic require a cami under it?

    1. No it doesn’t. This fabric is totally opaque. I have 4 tunics in this fabric and love it.

  9. It’s a great spring color! You nailed the outfit perfectly!

    Love that color! It’s 41 degrees this morning in Alabama and I wish I had that to put on!
