As we inch toward Spring here in Georgia, we are still having cold and hot weather in the same day.  So, I am continuing with Spring floral transition outfits that are versatile in look as well as warmth.  These three outfit ideas all use the same floral top and black denim jeans.  Changing the outerwear, jewelry and shoes take you from weekend dressy-casual through an office/evening look while still being comfortable no matter what our crazy weather decides to do next.  This fun crepe blouse has a multitude of colors in a watercolor-look pattern.  So many colors to play off of with your accessories and other wardrobe pieces!  The top has an elastic bottom hem and also elastic on the bottom  of the sleeves.  The denim jacket keeps the chill off and adds a nice mix of casual texture with the feminine soft blouse.  The black jeans are from Old Navy and are on sale, I am wearing the Mid-Rise Super Skinny style in the regular cut.  They have plenty of comfortable stretch.  I sized up but could probably wear my actual size since they do relax a bit after wearing for a couple of hours. They come to the ankle and can be worn as shown, rolled up or snugged down into tall boots with no problem.  You can shop for a similar blouse, jacket and the jeans at Old Navy.  

The ankle boots are dark gray with a 2-inch rubber heel and are comfortable with or without socks.  I have had these for a few years, but you can shop for similar comfortable Aerosoles ankle boots here at Amazon.

I have updated my look with the fun “front tuck”.  I am only 5′ 1″ with a shorter waist but can pull it off with a blouse that is soft like this.  Try it for yourself for something new and current!  Adding a second necklace for a layered look keeps the outfit balanced without the jacket.  The long necklace and cuff bracelet will be available soon in my Etsy shop, Designs by Lori Jo.  Hard to see in the pictures, but I am wearing the same lime-y green teardrop shaped stone-type earrings with every look.  Try to mix your colors, matchy-matchy is good but something unexpected works well for pops of color!  I bought these a few years ago,  but you can shop similar Green Teardrop earrings here at Amazon, and short gold link Kenneth Cole necklace  here at Amazon

On warmer days, a simple long gold tone pendant necklace creates a more casual look with colorful sandals like these in a yellow-orange color that pulls out one of the many colors in the blouse.  You can shop similar zodiac pendant necklace and slide-on sandals at Amazon here and here.

The final look is more for office and evening with the emphasis on black.  Similar black gladiator sandals, black pointelle (open weave pattern) lightweight cardigan and black tassel necklace can be shopped at Amazon here and here and here.
