Suited for Spring

Jacket? Gap, thrifted (similar here) Pants? Winners (very similar here) Necklace? J. Crew Clutch? Thrifted

Apparently it's spring and I should be busting out the pastels and florals. But since we can now wear white after labour day, I say that all the rules of fashion no longer count. Just wear what you want to wear, when you want to wear it. So brave and so bold, right? My limits are to stay between excessive frostbite and excessive sweating... everything else is fair game. Wool plaid in April? Why not? It's been miserable anyway...
Also, it should be noted that these red pants are a little big and I fully admit that I am too lazy to ever take these in. I know it will be exactly like these pants I wore earlier this year, which I thought would be an easy fix but then I ended up behind that sewing machine for far too long... I will leave these pants on the baggy side for the time being. Because, let's be honest, they feel like I am wearing track pants and that, is a beautiful thing.

Love the whole look! So refreshing to see a pant that's not a skinny leg. And refreshing is spring-like, no?

That's a fun look. I have not the courage for red bottoms any more, so I totally appreciate them on others.

I like the pants, and who says you have to follow fashion rules? The plaid looks great, especially since it's been freezing.

I say wear whatever the heck ya want - especially for us more up north where "spring" means 30 degrees. Which...can end any day now, thanks.

Also, those pants make your already long legs look even longer.

Love this outfit! Those pants look awesome on you!

Also, slightly curious why there is "girls" carved into the stone? Is that just a super nice public restroom?

It must be the plaid and the bricks - your outfit looks like a cool, modern Anne of Green Gables (who I love). Very nice!

Laura- It's an old school in the area and I guess they had separate entrances for boys and girls:)
