Welcome to Dressed for My Day! I’m so glad you stopped in for a little style inspiration. We have beautiful sunshine in the forecast absolutely all week long here in Cincinnati. But it’s also supposed to be quite chilly some days. I’m under no illusion that spring is here. But the weather this week reminds me that I want to be prepared with some spring-like fashions that still provide warmth for those chilly days. So today I’m sharing two fun looks to wear on a cool spring day.
Blue Jeans + Colorful Tee + White Denim Jacket
You can probably even duplicate these very simple early spring looks with items from your closet. But if you’re looking to add some pretty color to your wardrobe while it’s still a little chilly outside, I can highly recommend these soft striped boatneck tees from Vineyard Vines. I’m sharing two of them today in different colors of the season. But they’re both made from Vineyard Vines’ lightweight, wrinkle-resistant and quick-drying Sankaty fabric, which also provides UPF50 sun protection.
Whether you pair one of these striped boatneck tees with blue jeans or white jeans, you’ll look fresh and sporty. And because these lightweight striped Sankaty tees fit close to the body (without feeling snug at all), they’re perfect for layering under your favorite spring jackets or sweatshirts.
I opted for my white denim jacket with my blue jeans. The classic white denim jacket is less than half the original price and still well stocked. I think a white denim jacket is such a classic pairing with blue jeans or a pretty spring or summer dress.
By the way, if you’re looking for a blue denim jacket to add to your spring wardrobe, I highly recommend this Vince Camuto jean jacket. This 92% cotton, 6% polyester, 2% spandex jacket has a nice little amount of stretch in it and a slightly tapered fit. Best of all, it’s available in all sizes and 40% off.
My Day Loafer mules from Everlane are almost completely sold out. But mules are definitely still in style, and they make a great early spring shoe (before your feet are pedicure ready!). However, I recently purchased these Everlane Modern Loafers. Talk about feeling great right out of the box! They run true to size.
White Jeans + Colorful Tee + Sherpa Popover
This crystal blue sherpa popover with placket is a fun topper, too. I appreciate that this winter weight popover comes in beautiful spring colors, so you don’t have to sacrifice the pretty colors you’re craving at this time of year to stay warm. I’m wearing a size medium.
I generally size up in white jeans. But these white ankle jeans work very nicely in my usual size 8. In case you missed my Spring Essential Undergarments Refresh post yesterday, you might want to check it out for the undergarments you’ll want to have on the ready for wearing white jeans and pants.
Even marked down, the sherpa popover is a little pricey. And I don’t see anything else out there that resembles it and still comes in these beautiful, happy colors. But if you live in or plan on visiting an area that continues to have have cool mornings and evenings much of the summer, this popover could be a cool addition to your wardrobe. It’s such a warm and cozy but delightfully colorful topper to wear on a cool spring day.
Vineyard Vines is a fairly new store to me, but this 30+ year old brand is known for its Martha’s Vineyard inspired clothing for the whole family. That’s why I think this brand is one to really consider if you want to feel and look like spring (then summer) but still dress warm enough for those occasional chilly days. These are definitely the kinds of things I like to wear on a cool spring day.

Blessed for My Day
What have you learned about God lately? Or maybe you’ve learned something about yourself, about human nature. On what life lesson have you recently had a crash course? I’ve discovered that almost daily we have the opportunity to learn something about ourselves and/or about our God.
But we can also miss the lessons life has to teach us. Even when we go through the struggle and pain, so often we dismiss the greater lessons as quickly as we get on our on two feet again. Let’s not be women who fail to learn from life. Let’s pause today and thank God for patiently teaching us His ways, revealing our true nature, showing us the err of our steps and gently righting our path. And then let’s pause long enough to tuck away for safe-keeping the lessons that will help us cross this way with a little more victory, faith in God and steadfast obedience in the future.
For they had not gained any insight from the incident of the loaves, but their hearts were hardened. ~ Mark 6:52
