Here in Texas the weather continues to be a big ‘ol tease! We have had a taste of springlike weather only to swing right back to highs in the 30’s. As if that wasn’t enough I took a quick trip to Arizona where the weather was absolutely perfect which definitely has me thinking about shedding all these layers.
I did want to share this outfit. I purchased this sweater at Forever 21 in November…yes November….and just wasn’t feeling it but missed the return date. It has been seriously sitting in a basket in my closet all winter just looking for a chance to prove me wrong. I happened across Lauren McBrides Snow Day post here and knew it was worth a try! I so love how this looks and am only sad it took me so long to pull it together!
I always try to layer when traveling just in case the plane is cold or I’m stuck at the airport longer than expected. On travel day I chose my military jacket, Hudson jeans (currently on sale!) and a new striped top from J. Crew Factory that will be perfect heading into spring. Believe it or not my new purse was large enough to pack my Macbook, a book and other little necessities.

I wore my favorite Bobeau cardigan (also still on sale!) and a striped Gap T-shirt for our trip to the Grand Canyon. It was warm in Tempe but only 50 degrees once we climbed to 6000 feet so I knew I would need to layer.
The rest of our time in Tempe was beautiful and perfect shorts weather. I have previously professed my love for J. Crew and J. Crew Factory shorts (I wear the 5″) and I purchased a few new pair for this trip and our upcoming trip to California. I am always looking for tops that will work for TCU baseball games and found this little popover which is lightweight but the longer sleeves offer some protection from the sun.

I also wore this outfit to the game on Sunday and swapped the shorts for my Vigoss boyfriend jeans for the plane ride home.

While we will probably usher winter weather out with February, we will still have light layers into May. I ordered this jacket, which is still on sale at Nordstrom, and it arrived today. It is an adorable fit! If you need a lightweight jacket I would highly recommend this one.
