Flashback Friday: A Dozen Favorite Outfits from Last Spring.

Today, I am recapping my most favorite dozen outfits I wore last Spring and to tell you the truth I would repeat each and every one head to toe and re-wear them again if I could/wanted to. Some of these are more suitable for warm weather, some for in between weather and some for chilly and/or rainy Spring days. The first three outfits below are my top 3 most favorite looks from last Spring (March-May). The other outfits are listed in no particular order. So let's take a retro look back into my closet from a year ago. =)

Some outfits you remember, even if you are sick as a dog or your photographic memory is not that great. This is one of those outfits for me. I remember it vibrantly and will remember it forever. If you read the original post too, you will see how happy I was in this post. The beautiful colors of this outfit, the warm+sunny weather, my new crochet top which I loved so much - it all rubbed off on me and made me peachy, which showed through the photos too. Needless to say bright orange, light peach, vibrant mustard and tan have never looked better together! It is one of my most favorite looks I have ever shown on Thursday Moda, so far, too.

Through the years I have purchased many pretty dresses from The Limited - some of which in a classic wrap style, like this one. I had just purchased this days before I wore it to work. Unfortunately, The Limited closed its doors at the end of 2016 but luckily my closet still has several beautiful, well-made, classy and some fun items from there. This dress was one of my favorites and I styled it with block-heel black sandals and semi-opaque diamond-print black tights, all sparkled up with a silver statement necklace.

This is another work look and I wore it the weekend before Memorial Day. Summer was around the corner then. I love how clean, sharp and modern this looks in white and blue. The tank top is not fitted but the jeans are and the suede cobalt buckle pumps added some pizzazz.

I have had this colorful Old Navy colorblocked sweater dress in my closet for about 7 years now. I love that it is a midi style however it has crazy static. This year I purchased a similar one but just above the knee. I have worn it twice IRL but haven't been able to shoot it for the blog. I love how I styled this one with the fuchsia tights bringing out the fuchsia stripes of the dress. That blue+white tweedy Spring clutch with the oversized yellow tassel is one of my favorite warm weather clutches and I do like how the mixed metal chevron necklace, looked here.

This was in March right before Saint Patrick's Day. We had some 50+ degree days where short sleeves with a jacket on top were bearable. This is what I wore to work on one of those days. The watercolor midi A-line skirt is gorgeous and I love that the teals and turquoise shades played well with the bright Kelly green of the simple tee. And yeay for a good hair day!

Sometimes, the simplest outfits are the best. I love this oversized white+black windowpane button-down shirt. And these light-wash blue jeans were my favorite skinny jeans last year.

Some more green for Spring and around St. Paddy's. A Springy mint sweater paired with Kelly green cropped trousers for work and navy-striped D'Orsay flats. Easy, put-together, done!

This was the first time last Spring I wore short sleeves and wasn't cold. Love this light rose quartz "I Need Retail Therapy" graphic tee. It paired so well with this asymmetric striped pencil skirt that is in the softest jersey. I have had this neutral burlap clutch forever (from The Limited R.I.P.) and love it. While these gold perforated mini wedges go with everything and they have a peep-toe which makes them a great transitional Spring shoe.

This was my Easter Dress last year on a very special collaboration post I did with other moms and their kiddos. This is a 100% silk sheath in the prettiest colors and pattern. It paired well with the neon pink long cardigan. Vivian coordinated me in a beautiful bird+flowers mint dress. I cannot wait to do this special Easter post with other moms and their children, again, in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned. ;-)

These are my favorite floral pants out of like 3-4 floral pairs that I own because their background is navy so they go with many things, enter lavender and brown. Great and unexpected color duo to transition from Winter to Spring.

Bell bottoms and a long tunic blouse from Lush. White with yellow and light blue is great for Spring. I think blanket scarves are a nice way to layer for when you transition to Spring and can take the place of a jacket or cardigan. I haven't worn many blanket scarves all this Winter but I did wear this same one recently over a sweater dress and you will see that sometime next week.

This is such a pretty color combination for Spring: baby blue, baby pink and champagne (with touches of neon pink). A light suede skirt like this makes your transition into Spring smooth and stylish as does eyelet and cold shoulder tops (my blouse has both). That flamingo clutch is the cutest and it matched my flamingo scarf, flamingo gold watch and the flamingo in my cute iPhone case. Plus I was wearing the prettiest Spring jewelry.

Which of these three are your favorite outfits and why. Let me know in the comments.
