Anticipating Spring

Now that March is here (I can't believe how time is flying!), spring is well within reach but it also feels very far away. While it's still rainy and cold here, at least by Los Angeles standards, my thoughts are turning to spring and that means that my wardrobe is also following in that direction. Take, for example, this bright and colorful rainbow striped top. It immediately caught my eye in the store a few weeks ago, partly because I always gravitate toward anything that has a multi-colored rainbow pattern but also because the colors of this top are just are so joyful! I paired the shirt with a cashmere cardigan for a little added warmth and for more of a winter vibe; come spring and summer, I think I could knot the shirt forgo the sweater for a more seasonally appropriate look.

Another nod to spring in this look are my white jeans. I know it's a fashion faux pas to wear white before Labor Day but I thought this top looked best with white jeans and Labor Day is just too long to wait to wear this fun and colorful shirt! The last spring touch would be my yellow bag. Just looking at the bright yellow color makes me smile and it certainly helps to part the cloudy grey rain clouds that have become part of the scenery this winter in L.A.!
