It's been 80 degrees and sunny here for the past couple of days which gets me thinking about Spring. Spring and the color yellow go together in my mind and I love stripes as well, especially in nautical blue and white, for the warm weather.

With the scarf tied, the sweet little white V-shape of the sweater gets hidden so here's a picture with the scarf draped.

And, of course, the jewelry section is right next to the scarves and. of course, there were cute neon yellow earrings to coordinate with the other pieces. I do like a matchy-matchy look so the three items had to come home with me. I first tried the new pieces with white jeans, which is a nice look, but technically it's still winter so the old-fashioned part of me just couldn't do it. Pairing it with boyfriend jeans kept a little bit of a "winter in Scottsdale" look with the yellow and white being my nod to the Spring-like weather.

I had the yellow shoes in the pile to go to our upcoming swap party. I love the style but they're not really comfortable to wear for extended periods. When summer rolls around, I'll pull out the white wedges or the pale grey with yellow sandals or the...well, who knows for sure, but I'm thinking that the yellow and white sweater will pair well with a lot of shoes!
I've been working on expanding my repertoire of scarf-ties so stay tuned for next Monday's blog when I'll show you what I've learned. Join us the rest of this week, too, for topics ranging from food to money to furnishings and fun!
