Concrete Catwalk // Spring Strolling

May 14, 2013

For us, Spring weekends mean strolling the neighborhood, brunching at a sidewalk cafe, and picking up flowers from our favorite market.  We did all of the above as a way to ‘recover’ from a busy last couple of weeks, and the fresh air and quality time with my Sweet G were just what I needed to get back into the swing of things.

Not wanting to sacrifice all productivity, we also started switching our closets over from Winter to Spring, and I love discovering those pieces that I had forgotten about since the last time I saw them a few months ago.  Floral shorts are a warm-weather go-to of mine (loving this pair lately), and I knew that layering them with my bright new white denim jacket from Old Navy and some rose gold sandals would be the perfect transitional look.

I finished off the outfit with a straw fedora and an oversized handbag from Koret NY, who was the fabulous sponsor of our Style Session at Pepperologie on Saturday.  This tote is perfect for holding the weekend essentials, but just as great to hold your laptop and a spare set of shoes to use as a wear-to-work bag. (Available in the Fall!)

Keep reading for the rest of the look, and tell me what your favorite Spring-weekend activities are in the comments!

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Exceptional work!

    My husband and I also love spring strolls and grabbing a bite to eat at our favorite local corner cafe. But most of all, we love taking walks right at sunset in the pasture near our apartments. There are horses and wild flowers…the whole scene at sunset is just breath taking.
