Dressing for spring weather outings can be challenging when the morning starts at thirty degrees with frost, followed by afternoon temperatures of sixty degrees and sunshine. I’ve learned to dress in layers that can be removed or added as needed.
I wore this look on Saturday to drive to Abingdon, VA. We enjoyed beautiful sunshine and fresh air for a few hours as we shopped and took a short stroll through town. I wanted the option of layers to wear as needed, so I wore a merino wool sweater and a large silk twill scarf. Keep scrolling to see some of the outfit options.
The scarf dictated the color choice of the jacket, sweater, and bag. The white flare-leg jeans need to be worn with a bit of a heel, so I wore nude suede pumps.
This combination offered several styling options for comfort. On a warmer day, I might have worn a camisole or tank top, but I do not remove the cardigan or jacket if I wear a sleeveless top.
Directions for the scarf tie are here. The final photo to the right shows the scarf folded into a triangle and draped over one shoulder with the ends crossed over the other.
