It’s the end of March and we’ve adjusted the clocks; the calendar claims that it is spring, yet there remains a definite chill in the air. If you’re like me, you’ve grown tired of winter sweaters, but lightweight spring clothing leaves you feeling a bit frosted. That’s why I choose to layer my clothes while keeping them spring-themed with florals and color. This Fendi sweater was a find, and given the fact that it was purchased at the very end of the sale, it was the very last one. This blouse by Phillip Lim is elegant and cropped, defining the waist and yet falling effortlessly. I love the ruffle sleeve, which I had to shorten because my arms are short. This brings me to my next point…tailoring. The right fit is crucial, as it can make or break an outfit. I always tailor my clothing; at 5’3″, I am short, but not petite. I will usually purchase a size small and shorten the sleeves or length of a shirt. I shortened this sweater coat because I felt that it dropped too low for my height. I cannot reiterate enough the value of tailoring; never walk away from an item of clothing because you think that it doesn’t fit you correctly. If you love it, have it tailored! Until the temperatures begin to reflect the season, I will be layering. How about you?

That sweater is calling my name!! It’s so fun and whimsical. And I can’t believe you really will wear it much living in CA—-just remember…if it needs some out and about time, I’d be happy to give it a walk or two!!!
It gets rather chilly here….and after 22 years here, my Canadian blood has completely thinned out. I wear down parkas here in the winter!
Your garden flowers are gorgeous. Love the sweater and blouse underneath. Thrilled that your dad is back home and enjoy your family time especially with Serena.
He is coming along, slowly but surely. And my voice is following the same trajectory. It’s not back yet, but getting there, and I am getting lots of help with it. Very traumatic to say the least!
