Texture Mixing and Florals

I’m beginning to forget what the sky looks like; we’ve had near permanent cloud cover here for more than week.  It looks more like a giant, light grey blanket overhead than anything else.  I feel, more than ever, like I need to embrace light, fun, spring looks.

Also still in the process of finding my Valentines date look, so I’m doing my best to keep it at least polished, if not dressy.

This green and delicate pink floral jacket was just the ticket.  I am eager for spring and summer to arrive, so I’ll get a bit more use out of it.  The cut enhances my silhouette, and I love the silver button detail on the pocket as well as the pink stitching.  It has a rough texture to it, which I felt went really nicely with the soft femininity of this crocheted skirt.

Unfortunately, when I put it together, there was just something “off” about it the outfit.  I tried quite a few belts with no luck, then I found some spare olive fabric and simply decided to braid a decorative belt myself.  It seems to have worked out well, as it pulled the overall look together.
