31 Mar Spring is Blooming
The sun peaked it’s head out today, although I am still waiting for the high 60s early 70’s. I do shop at Ann Taylor a lot, as you probably know, and this came out last year at the beginning of spring. I love florals, love roses, and against the white, it was so vibrant, I thought I would be able to pair this with much in my closet. I suppose you also know how much I like lace, that is made well, and this is probably where “Ann” and I began our relationship. I used to shop at Ann Taylor Loft more, and last time I went in there, they had wondered where I had been. ( a sign you might be shopping in there too much !) I told them, I was having an affair, with their sister company, Ann Taylor 🙂 So, we are now frequenting this restaurant near the Lake, and I just can’t wait until I can make myself comfortable on their couches, with a glass of wine in my hand, and a view, with the sun beaming down. I was able to take out one other of my spring bags, which I love, as the color is like a soft pink rose, and Balenciaga bags are so light no matter how much you pack in them. A guilty pleasure.
Sweater: Ann Taylor ( last year, similar), lace skirt ( Ann Taylor, similar), Gladiator sandals Sofft, Handbag: Balenciaga Color: Vieux Rose, Earrings and Necklace: Jewel Box

Well Jess, you make Ann look really good!
Love the creamy green lace skirt and the floral blouse. The rosebud necklace is such a bonus. You red ahit looks super pretty in the sun! Love your rose colored bag, too!

Thanks Elle. I appreciate it. I wonder if Ann knows how much of her clothes I wear? hehe. This was one color in the cardigan that I wanted to pick up, and did so with the skirt. I appreciate the comments. You are so nice.
My Balenciaga bag is one of my favorites, I love the color, and it is so light. I need to remember to turn it to the right side to photograph it too! My hubby pointed that out. 🙂 xo jess

Beautiful spring colours and floral prints, Jess! You paired these colours so nicely together with your bag and statement necklace.
That must be a great restaurant with a fantastic lake view!

Hi Annette. THank you. I love florals and this combination of colors. Already we are “regulars” and it has only been open about 4-5 months. Today we got to sit outside and enjoy the view. Yes, you may see several more posts around here. xo jess

I just love your style, Jess! Every look I’ve seen you in is unique and so chic! Love the beautiful floral sweater and the way it picks up the color or that great lace skirt! Spring has truly arrived!

Thanks Mary. Here in Charlotte, NC you need more of a spring/summer wardrobe, and last summer I went a bit crazy with the florals and lace, good thing they work this year as well. I try and pick up colors in the sweater to pair with a skirt, so thank you, It worked well. Now, we can only hope spring stays here!

Hi. Looks nice and springy down there. Still cold in NYC 🙁 saw lots of florals in Europe so this is spot on. Looks great.

Hi Tim. It is getting there. 60’s this coming week I think. I love florals and lace, so good to know I am “in” with European fashion 🙂 Thanks for the comment. Hope it warms up for you soon. xo jess

Hi dear Jess,
another beautiful spring outfit!Your lace skirt is so lovely The top is pure spring romance and the necklace is soo pretty. But my absolute highlight, as you might guess, is your Balenciaga bag, which I really love. The colour is perfect to match with so many outfits. You look really charming.

Hi Monika, How would I know my purse would be your fav? Could it be your love of purses as well. Balenciaga discontinued this color, but I like ti quite a bit not too pale and not too dark of a pink. Thank you for such lovely comments. I think we are warming up a bit here.
