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.

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.
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!

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
