A Peek at Spring

I’ll be honest, I really didn’t pay much attention to the fact that today is the first day of spring. I signed on to Instagram and saw all of the bright springy outfits as I watched the snow fall outside. So, I’m going to share with you my outfit from yesterday which was a much more spring like outfit than what I decided to wear today. As much as I love my bright colors I have a feeling I’m going to be stocking up on pastels this seasons. My first pastel purchase for the spring was the J.Crew Lightweight Merino Tunic Sweater in Heather Lavender. I’m liking the longer sweater/top trend this season so I thought I would try this one out as I had seen a few positive reviews online. I took a medium which is my almost always sweater size in J.Crew, it has a loose fit, and is a bit swingy with two side slits. You definitely need a shirt underneath as the lighter color is fairly sheer and the side slits definitely show my sides. Nobody needs to see that. I just layered a lightweight tank underneath. I liked this sweater because it’s a slimmer cut of the swing style of sweater and I don’t feel huge in it like I have in some of the other oversized sweaters that are out right now. Don’t need to be adding any pounds!

 This necklace totally escaped me when it was out this last winter, but I received it as a birthday gift and I am finding it to be so versatile. Here’s a closeup:

  1. I have that necklace and have found it more versatile than I expected too! Also, thanks for mentioning that the sweater had side slits. No other blogger has mentioned that and I also found them a little too high.

    1. Meghan, thank you! I totally agree, the necklace is so versatile. Glad my review of the sweater helped you out! Thanks for taking the time to comment 🙂

  2. Beautiful sweater! Even if the weather isn’t cooperating, at least you can *feel* springy in that gorgeous pastel. Looks so great on you!

    1. thank you Gigi!! Banana Republic has been my go-to for good pants lately…not having much luck at Crew. The necklace was a surprise pairing – thanks for stopping by!!

  3. Lovely Spring outfit. Glad you got that necklace. It’s perfect with the sweater. Thanks for the reviews on JCA.

    1. thank you! I agree – I didn’t even think about it at first but when I tried them together they were a total win! Thanks for stopping in and taking the time to comment!

  4. Wow! That necklace is gorgeous! what size Tippi’s do you normally order? (if you don’t mind my asking?) I always order a L in J.Crew sweaters and am wondering if I should ever size down. I just ordered the stripe merino sweater like the hot pink one you got and am now worried the L will be too big…Is the pink a M too? Thanks as always!
