3 Layers for Spring…

Posted on: February 19, 2014

I have recently been doing 3 layered looks  for Winter Weather, but today we had wonderful Spring temps around 70 and I finally was able to show this look that has been sitting in my closet on a hanger awaiting for proper weather…

The three layers are a sequined t-shirt, a zippered short sleeve patterned hoodie and of course the 3/4 sleeved ponte knit blazer…

I first wore a zippered hoodie under a blazer back in early Fall when Angie from You Look Fab and introduced the idea.  Since then I’ve seen a lot of male stars sporting the look.  I like how I can wear a blazer , yet remain casual.

I found this short sleeve grey hoodie  at Goodwill and would love to find a few more.  The problem with that is that it really is a product geared towards juniors and I’ve seen several in ‘kitchy” prints which I tend to steer away from… I don’t want to look like I’m trying to hard to be young and I tend to associated the stars and butterfly print zippered hoodies I found as doing just that. So, still searching …

It was nice not to be cold while taking photos and not feeling like I needed to wear a hat…not that I don’t love my hats….

Dear Readers, Are you looking as forward to Spring as I am?   I can’t wait to wear more skirts and dresses which I have totally neglected this winter….

Today my calves were still painful, but a much more manageable level that allowed me to be up and about and I  actually cooked dinner… I just sauteed chicken, peppers and onions for chicken tacos, simple but everyone loved it…Not sure if I’ll attempt a workout tomorrow or wait for Friday…

Gratitude

I am grateful that I was able to make dinner and had it ready when my husband and son came home from work. (I wonder if the novelty will wear off that he is actually coming home at dinner time with this new job!)  

I am grateful that this last year before my son heads off to college that  working for my husband’s boss  allows them to go out to lunch 2-3 days each week…..PRICELESS

I am grateful that a financial advisor came and talked to the Seniors today and that my son really heard what I’ve been saying all along about having a Savings account.

I am grateful that my youngest finally did the guided meditation yesterday and our day ended up much better than it began and I even got an “I love you”

I am grateful that my insisting he work to change his mood spilled over into today and the conversation he initiated about personal insights and moving forward.

What a great idea with the hoodie/blazer combo! I love a mix of a dressier look combined with casual elements. This is perfect.
I’ve got a couple of hooded, thinner (more spring like) tops I should try this with.
Ahhhh, 70’s degrees…..sigh. I live for the day…. haha Right now I’m nearly jumping up and down if I see actual sunshine. 🙂
Oh…and love the communication you and your family members have with each other. That’s so nice to hear.

Looking forward to your versions and hoping you get sunshine to hold on til Spring.
