my outfit: mellow yellow returns!

You gals may remember this rockin' jacket that Lands End Canvas was so generous to send to me!?!? I knew once spring hit it would be a blast to wear around town, and I was right! I get so many compliments on it. Must be because it's so bold. Really, it's not very mellow at all, is it?


When I went shopping last weekend (my big spring stock up... well, not THAT big). I was careful to keep in mind the spring trends I so carefully and lovingly put together for us. Oh, what... you haven't snagged your copy of the Spring 2010 looks:book? Well, ya' better!


Keep in mind that the trends I laid out in the looks:book will integrate well with your current wardrobe (very mix and match friendly) so that you aren't completely abandoning your existing clothing... just "sprucing" your look up a bit!


Which is just what I did here. I hope you have found the looks:book (for those of you that have purchased it) to be a good inspiration and guide for spring shopping. I know I had the list running in my head when I picked up a couple new things last weekend. This top included.

I don't think I have ever owned a chambray top... wow, is it comfy! Here I paired it with gold accessories (belt, flats) and some super skinny, super dark jeans from F21. The cropped look is so fresh for spring especially when it hugs your legs nicely.

Details:
Jacket, Lands End Canvas
Top, Old Navy
Belt, Gap (similar)
Jeans, F21 (similar)
Flats, Nine West (similar)
Necklace, Banana Republic (similar)

Aaaahhhh...the yellow jacket. One of my most favorite things. I haven't stopped thinking about it so I think I'll have to stop by Land's End & see if they still have it in my size. I used your genius looks:book to purchase a chambray top from the GAP this weekend...love it!

Have a great week!

*dear Jennifer...a reason to buy the green trench? a happy spring heart? (is that solid enough justification?)

Adorable! I've been eyeing the chambray and denim tops at the Gap but haven't taken the plunge yet.

You will get a ridiculous amount of wear out of those pants too. A few years ago I had a very similar pair from Ann Taylor and wore them into oblivion. Still haven't found anything that compares :( I'll need some cropped work appropriate pants when it starts heating up though (jeans I can pull off if paired with something nice).
