Getting out of my "darker clothes" rut




Can you believe it's the end of March already?!  I can't believe how fast it flew by.  I can't say I'm too sad about it though, because I have really been looking forward to some warmer weather!  I'm so sick of the cold!  The weather around here has been really bipolar lately.  One day it was close to 70 degrees and the next day we had snowflakes!  I also ended up with a cold...or allergies.  I haven't figured it out yet.  So far it's just my nose going crazy and a dry throat.

Over the weekend I did some thrift shopping!  I found so many great things too!  I'm going to be sharing a March budget post tomorrow and share everything that I bought.  So no judgement!!  I got a bit carried away this month!



 
I swear I've been wearing my white jeans constantly!  I just can't get enough of them!  I've been trying to force myself out of my "dark colors rut" that I've been in lately too.  I'm trying to get into the spring spirit and wear some lighter colors.  I just seem to gravitate more toward darker colors, I guess.

Our weekend was spent running around like crazy. lol!  We are house sitting for my father in law and feeding his cat while he's on vacation, so we've been back and forth there, grocery shopping, and summer clothes shopping for our little one.  BUT  I didn't have any headaches so I guess that's a plus!  This week is supposed to be my bad week for headaches/migraines so we will see how it goes.  Luckily, I got all my post written for the week, just in case!

  1. You look great in these neutrals! I wore this same outfit last spring but haven't pulled it out yet this year.

  2. I know exactly what you mean about getting away from dark colours. Those white jeans look amazing on you. Looking forward to your post tomorrow, I have found a lot of great thrift items too recently which I need to blog about.

  4. I'm loving this look! I'm looking forward to wearing some lighter colours too. I love wearing black, but ever since we got our dog who sheds like crazy, it's not the most practical, so I always look forward to my spring/summer wardrobe that is a lot more forgiving in the dog hair department. Plus it's just so refreshing! Fingers crossed your headaches aren't too bad this week!

  5. Aw, you look pretty in light colors! I am sure as the weather warms up you'll be drawn to them more. I love the color of this portofino on you and can't wait to see where your dollars went this month!

  6. You and Carylee are wearing similar outfits today and I love them both. I just wore my new white jeans last week for the first time and cannot wait to wear them with more white and blush. This is such a soft and beautiful look.

  10. haha I noticed that this morning too! I have been reaching for my white denim so often lately. I love the way they instantly dress up an outfit

  11. Thank you so much! I am definitely trying to wear some lighter colors as it gets warmer. Black is always my favorite so I'm sure I will still always be reaching for that too. lol! And I know what you mean about the animal hair, I used to work in a pet store where they made us wear black pants, and that didn't work so well when you were around a dozen or so dogs all day. lol! I'm hoping the headaches stay away but we'll see.

  15. I love the white pants! I am very guilty of having a monochrome closet, so I tend to gravitate towards anything black and grey. It's tougher in the summer especially since I don't want to be wearing gloomy colours when it's so nice out. I really need to invest in some nice white pants!

    I confess I have been wearing a lot of dark clothing because of winter. But it's spring now, so I agree with you! Time for some more colorful clothing!

  19. You are gorgeous. I am loving those white jeans with the nude shoes and top! Hope you have a headache-free week. My allergies are going nuts, too... the only bad thing about spring! Happy Monday!

  20. Loving the neutral palette here, light colors look lovely on you! I used to always wear black, it's hard to break the habit, but I have fallen in love with other colors over the years :)

  28. It's really hard to get myself to reach for lighter pieces....and I feel like when I do, I end up wearing something darker with it anyway. lol. I'm going to try to get better with that

  33. I always held off buying the white pants because I thought I would never wear them, but I find myself wearing them a lot! They dress up any outfit, I think

  42. Thank you so much! My white jeans get dirty pretty fast but I blame that on my sticky fingered 2 year old. LOL! It's dangerous wearing them around her.

  43. Thank you so much Lauren! I actually got those white pants at Charlotte Russe on sale for $8 around Christmas time. I like these ones a lot because they are soft and stretchy but not see-through like other pairs I've tried on.
