Daily Threads: Movin' On Up


{J Crew Breton Boat-neck (similar), F21 Gray SkirtSteve Madden Inka Cognac Boots}

Starting today we have a heat warm wave moving in here in AL. Today is only the beginning - very low 60s, but as the week goes on we are getting into high 60s, low 70s - which, I have to say, I'm very excited about. So maybe a few spring looks (with winter clothes - how will that even work?) will show their faces this week!

Moving on... Friday I tweeted about a few goodies I had purchased for some projects! Well, I've completed two of the three and I can't wait to show you. I will post one of them tomorrow because... it's Valentine's Day related! Which, I kind of wished I had done it and posted it at the beginning of February so if you wanted to do it, you could do so in time for Valentines day. And I could have given it away. Oh well. It's a versatile project that can be tweaked for any season or theme - you'll see! (Does it irritate you that I'm rambling on about this and not sharing until tomorrow? Sorry.)

Update: Here's the project

Have a great rest of your Sunday!

You look great!

I really like your "no more than 3 colors per outfit" mantra. I love the simplicity and classic look of your outfits. I've noticed your belt and boots often match in your outfits... do you do that to pull the look together?

Gabriella said...

Lovely outfit! Especially the necklace! Where's it from?

Linley said...

@Amy and Troy - If I already have enough color going on, I usually match my belt to a color already existing in my outfit. So yes, I use my belt to pull the outfit together, but it doesn't always match my shoes.

@Gabriella - I got that necklace from a boutique in Pawleys Island, SC.

Fashion Therapist said...

Can't wait to see the goodies you've made. I love this outfit, but I am absolutely in love with the color of your tights. Such a great neutral color.

Renee B. said...

Ohhh man you are gorgeous in this outfit! Win!! Love the stripes and the necklace. Your last few outfit posts have definitely been inspiring, to say the least. xoxo

shealennon said...

We've had a bit of a warm up here too, hooray! I love the classic stripes with the bright, bold necklace.

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

kimmie said...

Can't wait for the tutorials!

I really like this outfit, Linley! The stripes and the skirt and the boots are just perfect. So jealous of your heat wave. It's still cold up here!

thelifeacademic said...

I don't think I would have thought to put that necklace with that shirt, but I love the combination of the chunky strands of beads and the narrow horizontal stripes. Well played, madam!

Kirsten said...

Im lovin this necklace shirt combo!!
And I can't wait for you projects!!
It seems like not being able to shop has made me wanna do more projects to keep me busy!!!

Brittany-Trends250 said...

i want boots like yours in that color! they look so good with almost anything.

Thoa said...

I love how you wear the belt! And the necklace definitely adds a little color to the outfit! That's a really cool skirt, but it doesn't look grey to me, it looks brown, or olive.

And can't wait to see your completed projects!

Tessa said...

Woww! I absolutely love this outfit. Your style is such an inspiration to me!

The striped shirt with the red necklace is perfect!

Shannon said...

Warmth sounds incredibly wonderful right now. Also, I love the stripes and neutrals with the pop of red!!

The Suburb Experiment said...

I love this - your legs look incredibly long! It's only in the 50's here but warm enough for me to start looking at my spring stuff longingly. I'll be glad when 30 for 30 is over and I can dig in to new stuff.

I really love this look! I have some similar pieces and might have to try to recreate it when the 30X30 is done. Although my version won't look as cute without that great pop of color that your red necklace adds.

kelseywilliams said...

i love this! one of my favorites of yours...ever. :)

Eclectic Flair said...

That top is so versatile, I'm thinking of getting one after the 30 for 30! Can't wait to see the Vday surprises!

Check out my 500 Days of Summer post!
