Happy Monday sweet gals! I’m so thankful you dropped by Dressed for My Day. Today’s cool temps have reminded me exactly why layering is not only beautiful, but essential during the spring. And today I’m layering a basic cardigan I already had in my closet over this sweet garden floral top and girlfriend chinos to create a lovely spring outfit. And it’s all 40% off today!
First, let me just say I love this color combination. We have black, olive green and multi-colored floral print. So contemporary, youthful and earthy. And it’s perfect for a day browsing through an old mining town like Bisbee, Arizona.
Because my top is lightweight and thin, it was easy to slip my simple black cardigan over it. This cardigan was a great little investment, and it’s 40% off through tonight. I’m wearing a small. You can also get this cardigan in a petite. And of course there are additional shades to choose from, such as fuchsia, pink, night sky and white.
Let me go ahead and mention that my three layered necklaces are all from Gorjana. I’ve fallen in love with their collection of dainty, contemporary necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings. I’m wearing the Starry-Eyed Layering Set, but each piece can also be purchased separately.
This pretty garden print top features a barely-there peplum and a keyhole opening in the back. Just enough detail to add some interest without creating a fuss. I’m wearing a small and it runs true to size. The top also comes in petite and plus sizes.
My girlfriend chinos are in “intense olive,” but they’re also available in “milky tan” and “coastal grey.” You can roll the cuff up a little for a sportier vibe if you wish. (I think I’d need them in tall if I wanted to roll the cuffs.) I’m wearing an 8, so they fit true to size. The pants are also available in petite, plus and tall sizes. Full of stretch, they’re extremely comfortable.
My black circle handle bag and strappy black sandals are no longer available, but I’ve provided some similar options in the shopping widget below.
Don’t you think this combination is feminine, delightfully casual and contemporary? And it’s all 40% off through Monday night. For the cardigan use code FRIENDS40. For the chinos and top use code NEWNOW. If you have any questions about any of the pieces, please let me know. And definitely let me know if you discover that any of my links don’t work. Thanks, gals!

Does your life provoke questions? I think that the easiest way to become an effective witness for Jesus is to live a life that is so dramatically and winsomely different that it stirs up questions in those around us. What kinds of questions? “How do you remain so hopeful in such a dark circumstance?” “Why did you speak so kindly to her when she was so rude to you?” “Where do you get the strength to press on when your life is so hard?” and “How did you manage to forgive him when he obviously was wrong?”
Of course, when the questions are asked we need to be prepared to give an answer, too. And may our answers always reflect the grace, sufficiency, glory and faithfulness of our Lord.
But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect. ~ 1 Peter 3:15
