Sweaters and Sandals
Posted by Devin
If you are going to give someone wardrobe advice for an Arizona Spring, sweaters and sandals would be a good start. Spring here is beauuuuutiful. Very sunny and warm, but sometimes there is a bit of a chill after the sun goes down. You can spend most of the day in your t-shirt and sandals, but you may need a sweater at night. Especially if you are a desert denizen like me and feel that any temp below 75 warrants a sweater.
The last few weeks have been in the upper 80's and there has been no need for sweaters at all. But this week we are going to see slightly cooler temperatures and I couldn't be happier! Mostly because of my new tribal sweater.
I bought this for my birthday last week and was worried I wouldn't be able to wear it until next winter. But then luck favored me and I saw that things were looking cooler for a short while, woohoo! Do you think anyone will notice if I wear it all week long? Eh... I don't care.
I have been wanting a tribal print sweater for months and never could find one that I loved. Then on a recent trip to the mall with Tara I spotted this one on clearance at Forever 21 and knew I had to have it! The print, colors, and cut were exactly what I was looking for and the price was right.
I am hoping to make lots of trips up north this summer so I won't have to wait 7 months for nice, cool weather again. Pine trees, here I come! And of course, I won't be forgetting to pack my sweater.
I paired my sweater with a simple black tee, light denim skinnies, strappy platform sandals, and my favorite teardrop turquoise necklace. I also added some braids to my hair for two reasons: 1. I am braid-obsessed lately. 2. Doesn't a tribal print sweater just seem like it would go with braids?!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Here's to a long and (slightly) chilly Spring!
