Spring Green-ing!

OK, so for a hot minute it felt like Spring might have sprung. Then March slammed us with our 3rd (!!!) Nor’easter in 10 days. But even so, Spring up here is never rompers and sandals. It’s a slow transition from down to denim, from booties to sandals, from turtlenecks to tees. So we adapt. And wear lighter layers when we can, but double down on the boots when we need to. And after often wearing head-to-toe black, color — like these shades of green — feels fresh and fun. Looking at these pics, I just realized this could be my St. Patrick’s Day outfit! Weather permitting, of course.

Spring in my Step

So here in JC the sun shined for like a hot second. Then a BomboGenesis blew in (again!). Wind, snow, rain, cold. In the Northeast, March is the month that can’t make up its mind. (If you live in a warmer, milder climate I might hate you…) But rewind back to this shoot. I was thrilled at the idea of sneakers and not boots, and OK, maybe a coat. But it could stay unbuttoned. And let’s hear it for white jeans whenever, wherever. (In  case you forgot, this is going to be a Shop My Closet month. And shop I did.)

Denim for Days

Informally known as “The Canadian Tuxedo,” jeans and a jean jacket are always a Go To combo for me. Weekends or week days, it’s easiest to make them work together if  you keep your denim in different washes (light with dark) and different silhouettes (oversized with skinny). I have to admit this jean jacket has been languishing in my closet all winter long, and temps were just warm enough to let it see the light of day. I also had fun playing with pinks and blues in every hue.
