(ABOVE) How fun that blush (“Rose Quartz”, this year) is back in style, because I love, love soft pink!  I’ve had this blush shirt for five or more years (see the current version here), and recently bought this dark pink bag (Antique Rouge) and patent-bow slingback flats.

If you saw my last post, it was a vlog of my visit to Talbots, Ann Taylor, and J. Crew to peek at the new springwear in stores right now.  I ended up getting a few items, three of which I’m wearing in this post–the shoes, bag, and pants, all of which are from Ann Taylor.

The shoes and bag both are versions of the season’s top color hue, “Rose Quartz”.  I love that they aren’t the same material, texture or color, but that they go together beautifully.  It’s much more interesting that way.  The pants are a cropped jacquard print that are just slim enough through the hips and thighs to show off the curves but are still loose enough to be comfortable and cool when the weather starts getting hotter.

In fact, it’s already getting hot in Southwest Florida, so comfort is essential. ~Janis Lyn Johnson

(ABOVE) This crossbody tote is faux leather, and therefore lightweight on the shoulder.  My Michele Diamond CSX Watch is about 12 years old. (See similar Michele watches here and at Neiman Marcus).
