Spring Sweater + jeans

April 05, 2016, by Deena @Shoes to Shiraz

Last week we did the coloured pants and red seems to be the go-to colour. Neat to see all the pictures together, thanks again to Lisa from Daily Style Finds for making our graphic.  You'll have to head over to the Blended Blog to see which post had the most clicks in our link up.STYLEPerspectivesAWrap_Week05_BRIGHT PANTS

This is a pretty tame look for me, but I had a purpose.  I wanted to style a sweater I would actually wear in the spring- something lightweight and airy. IMG_1908 I purchased the sweater at a local store, Harper Clothing Co.  and the jeans, yes a little crazy, but so I am, are from a local company as well, the White Dahlia. It's a simple outfit, with a little splash of my personality for this week.

The floral Dr. Martens are my favourite part.

But why do I still feel bored with this outfit? I think it's because when I hear Spring Sweater I think spring colours and florals, so for me to pick a cream sweater makes me feel like I let my style down......isn't it weird how you know when the outfit you put together isn't completely  you? I guess that's when you know you have figured out what your signature style is.   Maybe I should have added a necklace. Hmmmm.....I should quit rambling.spring floral

  2. Simple is sometimes best and the red flats are fab! I would love it if you could pop by my fashion blogger link up and add this post. I think my readers would really like your style.

  4. I love the color of the sweater! I totally thing adding a necklace would be fun!

  5. I think this is really cute, and the shoes pump it up. I'm so glad you bought those boots. Um, can we talk about your hair? Gorgeous! A preview look for Vegas, perhaps?

  6. While the outfit is cute and simple, it definitely needs more of you! :)

  7. Are you wearing extentions? I was with you when you bought the jeans!!! It is tame but classic. I like.

  8. Loving your looks!! Very cute with the flats... or the boots!! Those boots are perfect for where I live... we're having a spring that's "trying to come." Chicago weather has been nuts and can't decide if winter wants to stick around... cold temps and rain... boo!!!

  10. You all did rock the red pants last week. A cream or oatmeal sweater says Spring to me. I too love the fun floral Dc. Martens.

    This week’s current, brand-new linkup is live (a day early). I would love for you to join it. Thank you. Ada. =)

  12. Love your hair here. And I know what you mean when a look doesn't feel like you...I couldn't do this challenge it wasn't working for me and I only have winter sweaters couldn't pull of a spring look with this lol. The second pic of you is my fave :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Now that outfit looks like me, errr what I used to default to. I am trying to be less like me though. I do like the lightness of the sweater.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Love those docs, very you! And Mini Fox might have a pair that look exactly like that. Your hair looks great! I like the lightness of the sweater, but I can see how you don't feel like you, it seems too neutral? Did that make sense?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've really been trying to define my style lately but it can be difficult. It's good when you try something and can determine that it's NOT you :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love this whole look. We need to go shopping together again soon, lovely enabler. Also, you're gorgeous!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great look Deena!! Loving the hair as well...really beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. KILLED it!!! Can't wait til your my personal shopper next week!! lol

  19. Your top is lovely - such a great neutral and it pairs so nicely with the jeans. I think it looks great as-is although I could see it working really well with a fun statement necklace too :)

  21. Love those floral docs! They are so cute and really stand out with the neutral sweater!

    ReplyDelete
  22. So used to seeing you in pattern that this look was a bit of a surprise. Great nubby texture and light weight on the sweater. I figured out what Doc Martens are when I looked at your feet. I don't get out much!

    ReplyDelete
  23. yup, the sweater needs something else. Will have to play around.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know right, super dull for a Deena outfit. Needs more crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  25. it's a date and right back at ya!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ha- Lucia has a matching pair too! And it totally makes sense. I'm so not neutral.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Funny that you find it hard to define your own style, yet, when I look at the outfits you put together, I can see a definitely pattern of colourful whimsical spunk!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks...I tried my extensions and they finally match the colour of my hair...but I've changed it since already. Oops.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the colour palette of this outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  30. they make me happy. I'm easily pleased.

    ReplyDelete
  31. thanks for stopping by, will do your link up too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Definitely fake and I don't think it will match my new colour. Oy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sure am! and yes, you were with me. You got the crazy fun kimono.

    ReplyDelete
  34. We must be having the same spring as you- anytime I wear flats out, it's like I jinx the weather and it sleets.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would love to, thanks for stopping by.

    ReplyDelete
  36. bahahaha- love how you guys know my style after all these outfits. And yes, extensions..just cause.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think so too. Will have to re-style this one.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like the simplicity of this outfit very much I can see it being a sweater I go-to on a days when I need to look put together but just don't feel overly creative or am in a rush. I am really crushing on your statement earnings. Did you happen to purchase them recently?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love those floral Doc's! They are such a fun statement piece!

  40. I hear you on the plain outfit. Sometimes I put one together and I'm like "eh" but wear it anyways, usually because I'm already late for work.

  41. I love those earrings too...they are Stella and Dot : http://www.stelladot.com/shop/en_ca/p/jewelry/earrings/earrings-all/e152g
