It may not be Spring, but I’m pretending it is anyway! I find myself drawn to lively, warm colors that remind me of a beautiful spring garden this time of year. This stunning pink sweater is just what I needed to brighten up the dull winter. For anyone who says color isn’t necessary, I’ve got to disagree. It makes a huge difference in how we look and feel.
I bought this sweater because I couldn’t resist the pretty coral-pink color. It’s so cheery and uplifting. This color inspired me to pull out an old painting in storage in my basement and hang it in my office.
This sweater is super soft and cozy, and it’s surprisingly lightweight too. You tend to think of oversized sweaters like this as hot and heavy, but not this one. It’s also got a great V-neckline, which is always flattering because it shows more of your neck and makes you tall and slender. And do you see the fine ribbing? Great texture!
I’ve become a big fan of the oversized sweater look. (Remember the oversize gold turtleneck I wore a couple of months back?) I love the relaxed, slouchy silhouette because it makes an outfit look effortless and chic.
Many wonder what kind of pants you would wear with an oversized pink sweater, so you don’t look too boxy? These dot crop pants are perfect because they are very slim and narrow at the bottom. When you are wearing an oversize sweater, you want a little bottom. A broad base and wide top will make you look huge and boxy.
Navy is always an excellent color during this transitional time between winter and Spring. The style, the fit, the color …I’d say these pants are spot on!
As for the pink suede pumps, I bought them last year. I thought they were fun with the sweater. They give my outfit that fun, feminine, pretty pink vibe.
This sweater has long sleeves, but as you can see, I like wearing them pushed up. It makes me feel more sporty, and I like the look with the skinny cropped pants.
You see…..”Look ma, no hips!” It’s incredible how a voluminous sweater like this can fool the eye. As I mentioned, when you wear a voluminous sweater up top and skinny pants on the bottom, you create the illusion that your hips and bottom are much smaller than they are.
Isn’t that pink out of this world? I find that any pink shade helps give your skin a nice glow. This one is more on the warmer side.
I’m thrilled with my new outfit and my painting!
If you feel like putting a little Spring in your wardrobe ( and your step), then try this look. I’m counting the days until Spring. How about you?
