It may not be Spring, but I’m pretending it is anyway! This time of year I find myself drawn to lively, warm colors that remind me of a beautiful spring garden. This stunning pink sweater is just what I needed to brighten up the dull winter. For anyone who says color isn’t important, 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. In fact, this color inspired me to pull out an old painting I had in storage in my basement and hang it in my office.
I’ve become a big fan of the oversized sweater look. (Remember the gold oversize turtleneck I wore a couple of months back?) I love the relaxed, slouchy silhouette because it makes an outfit look so effortless and chic.
This sweater is super soft and cozy, and it’s surprisingly lightweight too. You tend to think of big sweaters like this as being 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!
My sweater is from TOPSHOP, a brand that I’ve been buying a lot lately. I find Topshop has a good selection of modern styles, fantastic colors, and it’s reasonably priced.
How do you like the cropped pants? These dotted pants are from Banana Republic, one of my go-to stores for classic pieces with a modern twist. I probably own about 6 pairs of their pants because they fit and wear so well. Navy is always an excellent color during this transitional time between winter and spring. I’d say these pants are spot on!
As for the pink suede pumps, I bought them last year and thought they were kind of fun with the sweater. They give my outfit that fun, feminine, pretty in 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 just like the look.
“Look ma, no hips!” It’s amazing how a voluminous sweater like this can fool the eye. When you wear a wide sweater up top and skinny pants on the bottom, you create the illusion that your hips and bottom are much smaller than they really 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!
