Spring Fever

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready for Spring! Heck, I even jumped on board with spring cleaning and cleared out my closet a couple of weekends ago! We got a little taste of it this weekend with temperatures in the upper fifties and low sixties. It was just wonderful! I took Sadie on some extra long walks because I just wanted to be outside. 

Spring brings the same challenges I face in the Fall when it comes to dressing for the office. I'm cold natured, so I won't go bare legged in fifty degree weather. But, the temperatures definitely put me in a lighter brighter mood and make me want to dress the season. 

I bought the blazer and scarf from JCrew, but at separate times, only to find out that the pink color in the scarf is a near perfect match to the blazer, so I always pair them together. But, I normally throw them on with navy pants, nude wedges, and a white blouse. I don't currently have any really good fitting navy dress pants, so I opted for a navy dress. I love blush and navy and it feels so spring-y to me!

I also wanted to let everyone know that JCrew Factory started selling their pencil skirts in tall, you can find them here. I spoke to a customer service representative this weekend and they did not know whether Factory would be carrying more styles in tall in the future. I always make it a point of letting JCrew know that I love their talls whenever I've got a representative on the line and I've made it a point to request that Factory carry tall sizes too. I have no idea if they listen to customer feedback, but I figure it can't hurt and I definitely want the regular retail store to continue offering talls. I've also noticed that retail's last couple of new arrival rollouts have featured longer dresses even when they weren't available in tall, so I've been loving it!

Dress: old, similar here | Blazer: old, similar here  also love this blue here | Tights: here (currently on sale!) | Shoes: old, similar here | Scarf: old, but I'm loving the pink accents in this one (and the print generally, I'm dying for the dress, here)


  1. Yes! Blush and navy is such a good combo. Both the scarf and blazer look fabulous. And that's great news about J.Crew Factory now carrying tall sizes!

    1. Thank you! The scarf had been on heavy rotation! I hope this means factory will start carrying more talls!
