Spring Layers

The best part about transitional seasons is the ability to create layered looks, and while I've never mastered the number of layers commonly found on J.Crew models, I do love being able to add a favorite jacket, blazer or cardigan to complete a look.

I also love layering my jewelry, and while it can sometimes be tricky to find just the right pieces to mesh with one another, this layered necklace Grand Avenue Jewelry sent over takes the guess work out and provides two adorable 14k gold plated charms at just the right lengths.

It makes me sad to see the cherry blossom trees in the center of my town already losing their petals - of the four trees there, only one was still clutching to its delicate pink flowers. They are only in bloom for such a short time, it makes me appreciate their beauty even more. What is your favorite part of the spring season?

 Linking up with Pink Sole's How I Spring


  1. Ooh love the necklace! And I agree, cherry blosson trees are great! The cherry tree in front of my house is still nice and pink, we'll see how long it lasts!

  2. We were just in Utah and I got to experience such beautiful blossoms...we just don't get that here in Denver as much!!

  3. You find so many beautiful spots to take outfit photos! I love these pretty blooms! And your spring layers are on point!

  4. Love that necklace! I'm such a sucker for simple, minimalistic pieces!


  5. Spring here is often a pretty dreary affair so it's hard to get very excited about it. The weather is still gold (it snowed almost every day last week) and everything is just brown and rather yucky...I think I might actually be ready for it to be summer, which seems to be the only time that we get greenery and flowers around here.

  6. I feel like we actually had a spring here which is AMAZING but then I was gone for most of it so you win some, you lose some. I have actually enjoyed dressing for spring this year which is a real change!

  7. Seeing the Spring blooms are my favorite part of Spring too! Such a shame they don't last long! And I love your layered necklace and Spring outfit!


  8. I love this whole outfit and those necklaces are paired perfectly!

  9. I wore some white mules almost identical to yours today - don't they just go with everything?! Love your outfit.


  10. Such a cute spring outfit with the double denim! It's a shame we don't have cherry blossoms here, they are so pretty in your photos, it's great you could still get a pic before the flowers are all gone!

    Hope that your week is off to a good start :)

    Away From The Blue

  11. I know, those J.Crew models seems to be able to wear 6 garments one on top of the other, yet remain cool. I'd look like a bag lady.
    Lovely shots my dear Lydia, I am glad to see you are getting every bit of those pink blooms. My fave part of spring is probably watching nature change, water is like magic.

  12. I love this style of pants but they never look right on me.


  13. I am loving the classic black and white- and those crop pants fit you perfectly!

  14. That medallion necklace is so cute! I love the layered look and your outfit is such a classic!


  15. I adore layering and this is the type of outfit I'd love to rock for spring. I love the fresh blooms of spring and it is a pity they don't last long!

  16. This outfit is so chic! I am loving the these pants and the layering!

    cute & little

  17. What a chic outfit! Love all of your dainty jewels, especially that pretty layered necklace!

  18. It only just started to feel like spring might be here for more than a few hours yesterday afternoon - so I'm not totally optimistic. I suspect that sometime next week, summer will unexpectedly arrive and my opportunities for layering will disappear before they've arrived. But I'll take the warm weather happily, even if it means no opportunities for layering a leather jacket or denim jacket over my favourite silk tanks this year. My favourite part of spring is the light - even though its been cold, the sun is always up before me, even on days when I wake up at 5:45 am, and that's just the best thing to me.

  19. The flowering trees are my absolute favorite part of spring- I'm always so sad to see them go!

    Love this resort-chic look on you, sis!

  20. Such a pretty outfit. Love the pants, they're so chic.

    Xx, Nailil

  21. I’ve been reaching for my denim jacket a lot lately! It’s been warm, cold, then hot, now cold...a light jacket gets me through! Love these pants!

  22. I love how you layered your outfit and those necklaces are adorable! It's always so fun seeing the pretty trees bloom in the spring, but it's sad when they go!
    xoxo, Darleen

  23. I love layering my necklaces! It’s so interesting for simple necklines!
