Casual in a Soft Springtime Shade

It felt like spring yesterday in the Lou, so I rocked a soft springtime shade to celebrate.  The pullover sweater is the ‘sunwashed aqua’ version of the J.Crew Factory textured Charley sweater you saw me wear in last Tuesday’s post.  I love the texture, fit, and colors of these sweaters so much that I purchased two of them.  The sweaters have been 40% off since they arrived in-store too.

In today’s post, the pullover is layered over a stripe tank and worn with jeans for a casual look for sunday brunch.  Two link necklaces and leopard wedges add a little pizazz.

    This is such a perfect casual outfit. Mint is a great color on you. (I buy things in pairs all the time. If you find something you love, why not buy it in multiples, right?)

    (If you're interested, my current giveaway is for a delicate sterling silver arrow necklace from Chloe + Isabel.)

      Thanks, Jessica. Sometimes when it's nice, you've gotta do it twice 🙂

    Could you tell me what size you're wearing in the Charley sweater? I'm usually a S in tops but wanted to make sure it ran true to size before I purchase. Thanks so much!

      Hey Emma. I'm wearing the Charley in an XS. It seems to run true to size. Good luck with your purchase!
