This past week I've done a fair bit of buying, a fair bit of returning and finally found some pieces that are staying in my closet. These are items for Spring and a couple for spring right on into summer.
I must apologize for the terrible photos - my camera is acting strange and doesn't know the difference between light and dark. I hope you see these ok. As well, nothing here is styled - it's just to show the actual items.
#1 - the Gap mesh sleeve sweater in the ivory colour.
#2 - the Gap mesh sleeve sweater in the grey colour.
I'm so glad these are available in the petite sizing, otherwise they would have been much too long on me. I like that they will work with both semi-tucking and untucking. They are oh so soft and comfy too. They will work with various bottoms as well as for de-bombshelling a pencil skirt.
#2 & #3 - Ralph Lauren cobalt jeans. First off - I have just rolled them under at the bottom since they are a bit too long and I wanted the hem to not get wet outside. I realize as they are shown here, they are not PPL. The fit and colour of these is fab.
#3 & #4 - Gap academy blazer in lemon with white trim and buttons. Again, thrilled that I can get this in petite. Totally in love with the bright cheery colour and the fit. It's a little wrinkly here due to the packaging. Finally - I get my shot of yellow for spring!
#5 - Reitmans cotton-polyester blend denim shirt in petite. Great soft, lightweight denim shirt for all seasons. I like the slightly western style of this shirt with the stitching and the pearl buttons. I've scrunched the sleeves here but just letting you know they are the perfect length undone and long.
#6 - thrifted black Nygard petite pencil skirt with front side zip. Great fit and staple piece, fully lined. Wanted a lighter weight pencil skirt for spring/summer.
#7 - thrifted Naturalizer leather bow clutch in a soft green. Sweet little purse for the season.
So - how did I do? Now I get the fun of making new outfits with all of these pieces. With these and my new white jeans and my navy trench and my prescription sunglasses coming next week, I'm feeling fairly set for the new season.
