I Feel Pretty | Spring Throwback

It’s a spring throwback today on GYPO.  So what exactly does that mean?  Well, it means that I’m revisiting some of my favorite spring outfits from last year.  Why?  Because I’m irked with Mother Nature after realizing that, last year at this time, we were full-fledged into spring weather.  Craig and I had our patio furniture out, we had started planting our flower beds and I was wearing open toed shoes again.

But not this year.  No, I’m still waiting to put away my riding boots and beginning to wonder if it’s ever going to get and stay warm.

The good news is that I’ve gotten plenty of outfit ideas from last year’s looks.  Most of these trends are here to stay for another year and you’d better believe that I’ll be wearing them again.

Here are five of my favorite looks from last spring.

1.  Military Jacket and Boyfriend Jeans

2.  Denim Shirt and Maxi Skirt

  11. Shybiker

    It feels like Spring is never going to arrive this year. Winter still has us in its cold grasp.

    I love the bright colors that pop out during Spring. They mirror nature and add pizzazz to fashion.
