What I’m Wearing for Spring

What I’m Wearing for Spring

Since I am heading to Salt Lake City tomorrow I thought I’d show you some of what I’ll be wearing.  Actually it’s what I have been wearing, but it’s all the same thing since I only have about 4 outfits.  It’s been interesting having to replace your entire wardrobe.

I have changed my philosophy over the years and now I am of the mind that one or two more costly things is better than 7-8 cheaper things.  I will probably need to fill in with some things from the thrift store soon since summer needs are different….I have to change often from excessive heat.

This first outfit was from one of the chilly days we had a week ago.  I wore a sweater for probably the last time this season.  The skirt is really old and the striped top you have seen many times before.  The necklace is old too, don’t remember where I got it.  But it’s easy to find cheap, chunky necklaces these days.

Be warned, you never know who is standing behind you photoboming.

Another cooler weather outfit is my favorite anthropologie top.  I will miss it when it’s hot.  But with this cute yellow skirt from Versona I can at least spring it up a bit before I pack it away.

The cat and the plunger in the background just proves the lengths of professionalism we go to for these photos.

Recently I got a couple of tops from Whole Earth Provisions.  They are linen and really pretty, but not fitted.  My stomach still won’t do fitted.  I may forever look pregnant.  This red top is a new fave and I will definitely be wearing it to the conferences the next 2 weekends.  But not with a scarf….I get too hot in them.  And the shoes, they are my new loves….from Otz.  The look of Toms but with support.  They make my heart got pitter pat.

This last pic is what I wore for Easter.  The top, again, is from Whole Earth Provisions and the rest is a mix of stuff I have had for a long time.  But the hat…..well that’s what is so great.  Even if you lose weight your accessories still fit.

Except rings.  I have no rings to wear and my wedding ring keeps falling off.  I am waiting until I lose it all then I am going to get it resized and buy myself a pretty something for my right hand.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy spring!

  8. I’ve always thought that horizontal stripes make a woman look bigger, but you completely disprove that theory of mine, Lisa. You look fabulous. You’re always so creative and I am amazed especially by how much thinner your face has become.

    That perpetually pregnant belly that you claim to have? Well, I can relate and while I think both you and I are slowly whittling it away, we can still wear it with pride. ;) Like my 5 year old tells me when she cuddles up with me, “I love your squishy tummy, Mom.” As she should since she is one-eighth of the reason I have so much squish. :)

    Have a fabulous time in SLC! Btw, your posts are always a sparkle of sunshine. :)

  9. Love love love the red and blue on you!

  10. Thank you for showing that modesty is more than denim jumpers! Your choices seem so stylish and comfy at the same time!

  11. Lisa, you look great! Cute outfits. I need to make some purchases for myself soon I just wish it was due to losing all the weight I would like to lose.

    I wanted to tell you that, when I was pregnant and my ring would not fit, my husband got me a pretty gold chain, just something simple, that I could slip the ring onto. Then I could still wear my ring but did not need to worry about it slipping off and getting lost! Just a thought. Lucky for you your ring is falling off due to weight loss and not because your finger is too large for it. :)

  12. I love the hat…. may have to get one. What conference are you going to in SLC?

  13. I’ve been searching high and low for some slip on, yet supportive shoes. Just ordered some and can’t wait to try them out!

  14. Still cannot get over how much weight you’ve lost. Amazing!! Muah!

  15. I love all of your outfits but the Easter outfit is fantastic….Thanks for the info on Otz shoes. I love Tom’s but I need support. Enjoy your trip!!

    Love the picture with James photobombing!
