She’s Dreaming of Spring Again!

January 30, 2024

Here’s the thing. I think retailers are introducing more spring items earlier this year. What do you think? And it’s got me all stirred up for warmer weather, despite the fact that we’ve probably got at least two full months more of winter weather where I live in Ohio. But a girl can dream! If you’re dreaming of spring with me, let’s check out this fun casual outfit that I’ve pieced together from some of my favorite brands.

Utility Pants and Striped Henley

This is the kind of outfit I enjoy wearing in the spring for casual outings, such as exploring a small town, watching a children’s soccer match or joining a friend for an alfresco coffee.

This year we can expect stripes to continue to pop up everywhere. And the easiest way to wear this trending print is in tops and sweaters. Here’s I’m wearing a ribbed striped Henley top from Talbots.

Utility Pants and Striped Henley

The sleeves on the ribbed striped Henley top are quite long, by the way. But I just cuffed up the sleeves a bit for a very casual vibe. Otherwise I’d say it runs true to size.

I wore the ribbed striped Henley tee over the ivory Recess Pant from Ayr. These Made-in-LA casual pants are crafted in a stretchy garment dyed canvas for all day wear and enjoyment. I’m wearing a size 30, so I’d say they run true to size. The Recess Pant is also available in a nice wheatgrass green, too, but for some reason there is no photo of that pant on the website.

For a little warmth on a chilly spring day, I’d add my red down puffer vest. But a denim jacket would be another great option here. And my navy and white Tretorn sneakers are perfect with this ivory and navy outfit.

I continue to enjoy my jewelry and shoulder bag from Brighton (c/o), and they’re the perfect accessories for this light and bright early spring outfit. I’m wearing my multi-tone Intrigue bracelet (c/o) along with my Lagos two-tone Derby Caviar buckle bracelet (c/o). And I also wore my Brighton Soiree two-tone hoops (c/o) and Interlok trio petite necklace (c/o). And I carried my bourbon Astrid organizer. I’m loving all the pockets and compartments this beautiful, classic bag features.

Thanks so much for dropping in today. Spring is still in the distant future for many of us. But a girl can’t help but dream!

Blessed for My Day

The more access we have to news of what is going on in the world, the more bad news we seem to hear. Compounded with our own personal problems, the hard things of life soon begin to weigh heavy on our shoulders. Sometimes we find ourselves in conversations that seem to focus on all the bad things going on in the world and in our smaller worlds. We come away from those talks with a multiplied sense of doom. Have you noticed that?

That’s why it’s so important to be a woman who shares a little good news with others. We don’t have to candy-coat issues or make light of people’s personal problems, mind you. Nor do we need to have a Pollyanna mentality that comes across as naivete. Instead, we can insert a little hope, a testimony of answered prayers, a word of biblical encouragement or a reminder of God’s faithfulness, goodness and sovereignty. Let’s be women who bring a little good news into the conversations we have today. How beautiful that will be!

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” ~ Isaiah 52:7

xoxo, Kay

  1. Love this outfit Kay! It fits my everyday lifestyle. Please share more outfits like this. I love how stripes are playing it big this spring! I’m going to try and up my tennis shoe wardrobe this spring! Thanks for all of your hard work!

  2. Love the look. I’m in New England, and it’s cold, although not bad if you are a native as I am. I have the same red Talbot’s vest and love it. I spilled hot oil all over the bottom of one side and soaked it in detergent. I don’t recommend dousing yourself with all, but it almost came out. The vest is still fine if I am just running errands and makes a good transition to spring. I used to have canvas whites, and you’ve encouraged me to hunt things out. I like the devotional: we can use positivity and good news.

  3. Good message on the devotional. When my friends talk about all the evil going on in the world I remind them that we have to trust God and pray. We’re supposed to not be afraid and have our hope in Jesus. Fear not for I am with you Isaiah 41:10. I’m just hoping the rest of our winter in Texas stays mild. We had that artic front and stayed so cold for a week. We’re enjoying a taste of spring this week but we can still expect more cold weather. It takes so much energy to heat a house than to cool it. I prefer hot weather now.

  4. I like the top items, but I don’t know what it is about the baggie pants that don’t seem to flatter. I don’t know if it’s the color or the baggy fit. They seem to make the bottom portion of the body look heavier. I’ve noticed this with all the baggy/loose fitting pants lately on this and other fashion websites.

  5. Hi! Love stripes and the colors. Yay Spring! I haven’t been enjoying the baggy pants and wide legged jeans on my body type. I am 5’8” and wear size 8 clothing, but I have wider hips so the baggy bottom does not flatter.
