The piles of snow have almost completely retreated from my lawn, and I'm definitely feeling spring coursing through my veins.

I said earlier that I love early-spring flowers like crocuses and snowdrops, but I'm more likely to wear crocus colors because I'm a little leery of wearing white. I do, however, have a whole lot of green clothing in my wardrobe, so I figured Why not? and put together this snowdrop-inspired outfit to celebrate yet another sunny, balmy day. 

Just like in the earlier outfit, I'm using a neutral that's also around in the natural world this time of year: this time, it's the mid-browns of sere grass and bare branches instead of grey late-winter skies.I like the pattern contrast of the cream-and-brown tweed and the lattice tights a lot too: the shapes echo each other without being too similar.

What's your favorite springtime fashion inspiration?


  1. Love your outfit today! Green is definitely my 'go to' color at this time of year (although today it's grey and taupe).

  2. you really rock the tweed. tights are the perfect pairing to add some deviance. in general am always in awe of your style.
