Daily Threads: Pink and Coral

cardigan: jcrew
shorts: gap {similar}
top: jcrew {similar}
sandals: vera wang {similar}

It's getting warm down here in the south - 70s and 80s warm. When the thermometer hits above 70, shorts are free game. For me anyway. I've really been enjoying following the trends that will pop up from now through summer, so I'm sporting my bright and bold colors. Other trends I'm really excited about: loafers, wide-leg trousers, maxi dresses/skirts, and pastels. 

This is me officially saying, "Hello, Spring!"


Also, today I'm featured on Collette's blog Statements in Fashion for Twitter Tuesday! Check me out!

I love the pink and coral together--I never would have thought to put such similar shades together, but I love it! And I'm so jealous of your weather . . . it was in the 50s here (Iowa) yesterday, and that felt glorious :-) I can't wait until we're in the 70s!

I'm completely jealous that y'all already have such warm weather. In West TN, we are in the 50s and overcast!
I want to rock shorts! Although- yours are way cuter than any I own. Such a good color on you, Linley!
And congrats on the Twitter Tuesday feature!
