i love spring, but it's an awkward season - it's not too hot or too cold. the mixture of the heat and the cool breeze has really been making it tough to find a perfect top to wear. 

lightweight tops are still too thin and most sweaters seem too thick, but the open knit sweaters seems to be the happy medium. it's thick enough to keep me warm, but the open holes allow for a little breeze to keep me cool. currently obsessing over this open knit top and dress.

what's fun about the open knit tops are that you can play around with colors by underlaying it with colorful tops, bras or bralettes (i layered mine by wearing this neon bralette).
if you're not the daring type to play with colors this is a subtle way to do it without making too big of a statement!
  
hope you all had a lovely weekend!

  3. Jin, I love how you tie your hair up. I generally have my chignon lower which doesn't add volume to the top. I'm so envious that you're able to wear a crochet top. We're still freezing here! I've got my woolies and coat on as well as riding boots.

  6. I love that you chose those little orange flowers as your backdrop. The flowers create this pretty pattern that complements your outfit really well. Good planning. ;) Great idea on the crochet sweater with the peek-a-boo bit of color. It's always the details that count.
