Here Comes the Sun...do dah do dah....

Saturday we finally saw the sun again! I realize that I did not take any big color risks here and I feel a little like a soccer mom in this but I loved it all the same. I think it looked better IRL because some of the details and coloring are harder to capture in a photo.  I wanted to pair this cardigan with a bright color (like Papaya) but my new whisper pink suede Juliet's arrived in the mail that morning (I found on eBay for $29.99) so I switched to the rolling ruffles tank instead.

Sunday I had planned on finally wearing my pleated lawn skirt from J Crew but I ended up being pressed for time so I threw on my new Boden dress and a necklace and I was done. I love items that make a statement on their own without having to worry about accessories....perfect for my crazy life!

Outfit 1 - yes, papaya will be great with the cardi, but I do love it with the pale pinks - so pretty and so soothing!

Outfit 2 - a fab piece that doesn't need much in the way of accessories - love it!! Dress looks great on you - love those colors!!

Double thums up on both outfits!!

Love those colors!!! I just got the Boden Spring catalog in the mail and have been dying to order several items, but hesitated because nobody I know has ordered from them before...seeing your outfits, I know I'll do very well.

Love that dress, by the way! Another one to add to my order.
