I know I'm a few days late in saying this, but happy first days of spring! I just returned Monday night from a week of skiing in the Austrian Alps with a fantastic group of friends, and I have the "goggle tan" to prove it, ha! While I love winter and skiing, I am so ready for spring. The weather may not be cooperating right now, but I am looking forward to longer days, warmer temperatures, and more sunny days. Spring also means outfit transitions to lighter layers, cooler fabrics, and a refreshed set of pantone colors. I found this long turquoise blue blazer on my first trip to Shanghai, and was immediately drawn to both the color and streamlined shape. The lightweight crepe fabric is perfect for spring, and I am excited to finally style this standout piece. For today's outfit, I decided to keep it casual by pairing this long blazer with a white oxford shirt, boyfriend jeans, and booties. I think the only thing I would like to add to this outfit would be maybe a wide-brimmed hat?
