Color Blocking with Switzerland

Although I love J. Crew's new line of brightly colored clothes, I really can't afford them at full-price. And they don't do coupons. But Gap does, so of course I went shopping! If you don't have a Gap card, get one. The coupons and rewards are remarkable.

Gap's bright blue pants are fantastic!  They are slouchy chinos that are meant to be a bit loose at the top which means I got to go down a size. Hooray! And - wait for it - they are comfortable!!  Notice the slimness at the ankles. Spring trend accomplished!!!

Sorry, I got excited. Anyway, the pink sweater is from Gap as well. It too, is meant to be slouchy and will be nice and light for the spring. But it is very cold today so I put a chambray shirt under it (a closet staple). Nice, huh?

I paired the outfit with neutral accessories (another staple must-have). The beige shoes are a big find for me - Vince Camuto's for less than $30 at Dillard's. The purse you will recognize as my T.J. Maxx find. What a weekend! I saved all kinds of money, at least that's how I spun it to my hubby ;)
