Welcome to Dressed for My Day, gals. My goal here – each and every day – is to inspire and help women like you and me to dress beautifully and appropriately for our unique days so we can engage gracefully with those around us and influence them positively.
Today I’m styling a transitional and spring outfit composed of one of my favorite color trios – green, navy and white. Oh, and of course I threw in a splash of leopard print, too!
While you may have been wearing your white jeans all winter – because that’s perfectly acceptable! – now it’s time to pair them with more springlike colors. And this vibrant, true green is a beautiful choice. It makes me think of tulip or daffodil stems peeking up through the cold earth, promising additional colors in the days to come.
My navy ponte knit blazer is a classy topper for this outfit and so many others. The jacket has a push forward notched collar with long vented sleeves. It’s fully lined with a coordinating navy and white fabric so you can roll the sleeves up for a sweet little contrast around your wrists. (I’m sorry I forgot to do that for these photos.)
I’m wearing a size 8 blazer.
I’ve come to love Ann Taylor’s wrap tops. I find that they fit close to the body and don’t gape open at the neck. However, I realize that I have a small bustline, and if you are well endowed the top may fit you differently. I do think the wrap silhouette is very flattering, however. And a v-neck is universally the most becoming neckline on most women.
***2/27/2019 Update – This top is 60% off the sale price today only!!
This wrap top is also available in a pretty batik blue. The green top would also pair beautifully with blue jeans, black pants, a navy skirt or even black and white gingham. My top is a size 8. Don’t you love the pretty, subdued ruffles?
All of my jewelry is old and from my jewelry box, but the key is simply to select a necklace that fits within the v of the neckline. I chose a rather large statement necklace, but you could also go with some dainty layering pieces like these beauties.
I always either size up in white jeans (and often even white pants) or opt for the curvy fit. These are a curvy, size 28 (6). I have enjoyed wearing these since last spring, and plan for them to be my white jeans for 2019 as well. They come in modern or curvy fit as well as regular and petite lengths.
You’ll notice I’ve shown this outfit with both leopard print flats (similar option and similar option) and my leopard print block heels. I know my readers like seeing both options and, honestly, I love wearing both sets of shoes equally.
And yes, you can definitely keep wearing your animal print through the spring and summer. Yay!
Do you have a favorite color trio that you enjoy wearing in spring? What colors are you looking most forward to wearing as the weather gets a little warmer and the days get longer? I’d love to hear from you today.

Blessed for My Day
When life takes a turn and the unexpected happens how do you respond? There have been many times, unfortunately, when I came undone because life seemed to be falling to pieces. In those not-so-stellar moments I became an agent of anxiety for those around me.
But we have a choice when life crumbles. We can be agents of anxiety or have a contagious calm. Wow! Wouldn’t our family members, co-workers and friends benefit from knowing someone with a contagious calm? How can we keep our calm when things are falling apart? By remembering that we are not alone. In fact, we are not in charge. But there is One in charge who is dependable, available, powerful and willing to step in.
The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:5b-7
