Happy Monday my friends!
Finally recovered from the flu and ready to take on a new week! And, it seems like Spring may be here for good too! No snow in the forecast (knock on wood), and we’re supposed to get in the 60’s this week. eeeek!! I’m here for it!
It’s definitely the time of the year for layering. No matter where you live, it’s probably cool(er) in the mornings and warmer in the afternoons when you step out for lunch or to head home. The easiest way to dress for this transition weather is to wear breathable fabrics that are easy to layer.
A light linen sweater like this one is a necessity this time of year. So much so that I picked up this top and another one in this “sand” color. And, both are currently 30% off in cart (along with the rest of my outfit!). This linen fabric is extremely lightweight, which makes it breathable even on warm days and easy to layer on cooler days. And, I find myself wearing this style of top with shorts well into Summer. It’s perfect for those cool Summer nights we experience up here in Minnie! Plus, this style is so classic you’re sure to wear it year over year.
For running errands this morning, I layered it with this grey vegan suede moto jacket. I know what you’re thinking, and yes I did need another moto jacket. lol! This would be moto number 3 for me! These jackets are my go to for an easy, chic layering piece. It really takes an everyday sweater to the next level in my opinion. And, is another style that will last you year over year!
In terms of sizing, I am wearing a small petite in the sweater. If you’re looking for more length to wear with leggings, I suggest sizing up or getting regular if you’re petite! I got a XS regular in the jacket, and it fits TTS. If you want to layer this over a thicker sweater definitely size up one! And, my raw hem denim also comes in petite! Fits TTS, and this is the second day in a row I’m wearing them. Wearing denim on a Sunday morning? That’s how you know it’s good – lol!
I’m doing a try on with each of these pieces this afternoon in stories!! I had been meaning to get to Banana forever since it was a requested retailer of you gals, and I know you all want more workwear options too! Showing a few casual pieces in stories today and plan to hit up the mall soon for a workwear try on as promised!
Have a great start to your week everyone!
