Brighten my day

Slowly and steadily I've been pulling out pieces from my spring storage box and when I pulled out this scarf I thought - yes! This is exactly the inspiration piece I need for a bright spring outfit.

Even though the base colour of this scarf is a light lilac - which is so not usually my colour - it has pretty much every other bright spring colour that I have in my wardrobe. So I pulled monochromatic pieces from the colours of the scarf and just put it all on together - it happened to work!

The weather here is finally starting to turn towards spring and it was actually a high of 4'C this day! Compared to the -30s we've had lately 4 is positively balmy! I just added my teal wool coat for when I was outside and a light cardi for inside and I was plenty comfortable and warm all day long.

I can't wait to be wearing these bright springy colours almost every day once I can rotate in the rest of my spring wardrobe pieces.

    1. I am soooo jealous of your weather! We're looking at a high of 6'C this weekend... which is about 42 F! And that certainly seems warm to us right now!

  2. I love that it's warming up outside! That scarf is gorgeous and so springy...and the!

    1. Thanks Debbie - it was such a great thrifting find! These shoes were a total steal too - pretty sure I got them as part of a 2 for $15 deal! Can't wait to be wearing stuff like this more often. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great outfit! I LOVE ALL THE COLORS!!! And those scalloped shoes are so on trend right now. PS--I love your wall color too!!1
