TGIF my amazing blogger fam, who’s ready for the weekend? As always I hope you are doing well and staying safe. We had a lovely sunny day here and it was so nice to see the snow melting. It’s supposed to be rainy this weekend but it’s definitely warmer so I won’t complain!
Today’s post is in partnership with my friends at Woman Within! As this weekend marks the end of February (is it just me or is time flying by?) and I thought it would be great to talk about refreshing your at home wardrobe for spring. As always, all opinions expressed in this post are my own.
It’s been almost a year since the pandemic began and we are still spending a lot of time working and living at home for the foreseeable future. And like most of you my wardrobe has shifted to comfy pieces that work for whatever I have on the go. As we head into spring one thing that we can do to change things up is get our regular staples in fresh new colours and prints.
And I don’t know about you but even though I may be staying inside I still get hot as the temperature warms up and that means I switch to short sleeves and crops.
Woman Within has an amazing selection of new prints and colours in my favourite styles that were an instant mood booster as soon as I saw them! And right now Woman Within also has an amazing sale where these tops & bottoms are only $12 each, cardigans are $20 and sneakers are half price.
For this first look I wanted to take one of my favourite every day outfits and update it with Pantone’s colours of the year for 2021 – yellow and grey. I am a huge fan of yellow so I was very excited when Pantone chose it. And grey is a great neutral.
I love a good skort because it gives me the comfort of shorts combined with the elevated look and feel of a skirt. And the built in shorts are automatic thigh savers! This sport version from Woman Within comes in a tonne of colours and goes up to a size 44. It is 21 inches in length so it hits me just at the knee which I love. And the shorts have an 8 inch inseam which provides great coverage. And it has pockets! I am wearing the 4x because I need the room in the thigh for my lipedema.
This short sleeve shirred neck t-shirt is a must have for my wardrobe if you haven’t figured out by now. I reach for this style time and time again because I love a v-neck with short sleeves and they can be hard to find sometimes. I love that Woman Within offers short sleeve options all year long. This grey and white print was the perfect compliment to the buttery soft yellow of the skort. I am also wearing a 4x in this.
To top off both of these looks I chose one of my all time favourite Woman Within styles, the elbow length boyfriend cardigan. For me it is the perfect layering piece and carries me through most of the year. It is also a timeless classic that will never go out of style. And of course it comes in a variety of colours and prints. And because Woman Within keeps all their colours consistent across their styles, it is a perfect match for the skort!
To complete this first look I added a grey knit sneaker and a pewter metallic tote. It’s easy and simple which is great for running errands, grabbing coffee or going to the park with the family. I love that Comfortview sneakers come in wide and extra wide widths too.
For this second look I pretty much used the same formula as the first one but I swapped out the skort for a pair of knit capris. These knit capris are super comfy and perfect for wearing anytime. I love colour so I decided to go for this vibrant teal. It’s something that I know I will be able to mix and match with other pieces in my closet. I wear the 4x in these because I need the extra back rise, which is something that Woman Within could work on.
You guys also know that I love a good floral so I decided to amp up the spring motif with these vibrant tee on a crisp white background. I love how all the colours pair so well together and are so fun! I immediately feel great when I put on this shirt.
Now probably one of the favourite things I got this month are these orange sneakers!! I love the fun edgy colour and they are super lightweight but still very supportive. I love a shoe like this because they really add to a look and express my personality. An orange tote completed this laid back look.
As I always say, your clothing can be simple, casual and comfortable but still stylish. And thankfully Woman Within has you covered. I can’t wait till it’s warm enough to wear these looks and celebrate spring! Are you excited for spring?
