My Favorite


Spring brings the perfect weather for my favorite combination, the sweater and shorts. It has to be cloudy and in between 55 and 65 degrees for me to successfully pull off.  Yes, after 33 years I  have the exact formula worked out.

Lumiere sweater (from a blog sale)
Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses
Blank NYC twisted hem shorts
Kate Spade bag
Target snakeskin flats

That really is the perfect combo - how can you go wrong with red stripes. Plus you have the great legs for those shorts!

I love it. I don't wear shorts but if I did, I would steal this look.

Fabulous. I should probably look into this combination being as that range of temperatures is what we've had lately here in Oregon.

Shorts and sweaters rule. You have the perfect climate to work that out in. *needs to visit*

Is that formula some kind of crazy algebra? I am not good at math. See, I think the reason you can pull off the sweater and shorts is that you are from a frozen area and therefore if you are cold in the leg zone, it is akin to wearing a skirt. I am a temperature wimp. I would be too hot and top and cold on the bottom or if I was cold on top it would just all be wrong. But it looks super cute. I like stripes. They are a delightful combo of French and nautical.

What a great outfit! I really like the stripes and dolman sleeves of that sweater. It goes great with the shorts.

I love this look!! I don't think the weather is ever just right for me to try this... I'm such a wuss about cold weather that in order for me to bare my legs, it has to be in the 70's and then it's too hot for a sweater!

Natalie said...

like the sweater...totally reminds me of where's waldo

It is a beautiful combo...and I think many of us wait to stretch our legs and wear these pretty shorts...you are looking great and very colourful and bright to suit the season around you.
