The whites

White blazer, white hat, white blossoms.

I feel like I've said this before, but I think we finally hit the turning point in the weather, and Spring is truly underway. Last night at 9pm, if my car is to be believed, it was 70°. Now that, I can get used to. Sometimes I feel like I spend so much time waiting for and anticipating spring, that I forget by the time it's here the year is nearly half over.

I suppose I'd better start making up for lost time.

  1. Love this outfit! The light wash of those jeans is great! And I know what you mean...I feel like the same thing happens with Fall sometimes. We wait for those "perfect" days and by the time we get one Fall is almost over. Why can't Winter be the quick season?!

  2. Super cute look made up up of closet staples. This is my kind of outfit. Love it.

  3. This outfit is so perfectly spring-like! And I love that it's not just immediately a summer outfit with short sleeves - I feel like I've been reading a lot of blogs where the transition from winter to summer happened over night and it never gets that warm in Vancouver, so I need inspiration that includes sleeves ;) Unbelievably, I still don't own a white blazer, and I need to correct that as soon as possible, because yours is gorgeous and there are so many ways to wear them... including yours in these photos, which I would never have considered but that looks absolutely perfectly.

  4. Yesss, get those bright whites out of the closet! You look amazing here, doll.

  8. I know it, once spring hits the year really flies by!! I love this spring look--the mix of patterns with the white hat and blazer make such a pretty combo!

  9. You always make casual wear look so damn elegant and sophisticated. That clutch is just perfect too, by the way.

  21. You make such a great point. I do the very same, obsessing about cooler weather and waiting for it to change then when it finally hits it only lasts for a few days or so before we move into another season.


  22. I love all the white and you are not conforming to the "no white before memorial day" rule. Rules were made to be broken ;)

  23. Classic look and I love the scarf. I need to find a hat as flattering as yours.


  24. Yes, Spring is finally here! I really like that hat. I need to get on the hat train, because every blogger looks so cute in them and I don't have one!

  25. I hope you have plans for the weekend and stretch this spring outttttt
