Step into Spring and My Closet: Mom Style Files #MSFILES

Step into Spring Mom Style Files

When I saw the first few flakes whirl around me during my morning commute Friday morning, I cursed Mother Nature.

Seriously, she’s female doesn’t she understand that I’m in desperate need of my spring clothing fix. I have already put my wool sweaters away and brought out my cute short sleeved shirts, and I even shaved my legs so I could wear skirts without tights. Then she makes the weather go wacko.

This week doesn’t look any better, more rain and more cool temps.

So I’ll just sit and stare at my closet, waiting, wishing and hoping to wear my favorite things…

Like my flowy flower shirt I just bought at LOFT. I can’t wait to wear this with a pair of yellow ankle pants, which are also on my wish list.

My white wide leg slacks are a spring necessity, and this cute peasant top is a nice touch.

I’ve already written about my love of skirts, but I can’t wait to wear them with tanks and bare legs, and sandals of course.

This dress! I only got to wear it once last fall during a trip to Chicago. I’m hoping to wear it again on stage for Listen to Your Mother, and hopefully some fun date nights in downtown Iowa City.

Did I say sandals? My Gianni Bini platforms are the most comfortable and flattering sandal I own, and I wear them with EVERYTHING.

So there you have it, some of my favorite spring picks straight from my closet.
