Happy Friday, Everybody!
Well, it’s been a HUGE week over here at Sheaffer Told Me To! I made my case for Denim on Denim on Monday, on Tuesday I announced the name change, and on Wednesday I recapped the Bachelor fantasy suite dates and the 23,000 I LOVE YOUs that were exchanged. I’m physically and emotionally exhausted. 😉
But today? TODAY IS GONNA BE AWESOME! I have a great spring outfit for you and a FABULOUS giveaway.
But first up, I want to again say how overwhelmed I was with all of your support this week. I’d been thinking about changing the blog name for awhile now, but was a little anxious about how it would be received. Well, it seems I had nothing to worry about because MY WORD, YOU GUYS ARE THE ABSOLUTE SWEETEST!!! I can’t thank you enough for all of the kind words and encouragement!
Before we get to the outfit today, I have a couple of house keeping things to address with the new blog. I received a couple of e-mails from people saying that they are now being blocked from the blog at work. In addition to the name change, my platform also changed from Blogger to WordPress, so that might be where the problem lies (Blogger is a Google product so it might not have been blocked before). If you are now being blocked from the blog at work AND/OR if you receive the blog by e-mail and are having issues with either tiny or large font, then I suggest subscribing for e-mails HERE. A different system was installed and it should fix all font sizes issues! After you sign up, the blog will be e-mailed to you with each new post, and you should be able to read it wherever, so that should fix the work problem as well!! Concerning the blog organization, please notice all of the tabs in blue found under the header at the top of this page. Feel free to click around on all of them (the Favorite Outfits is coming soon!), but some highlights follow: click HERE for my new ABOUT ME page, click HERE for the review of my MUST HAVES, and click HERE for all of my Bachelor recaps.
If viewing on a computer, there are also some fun new things on the sidebar (if viewing on a mobile device, scroll all the way to the bottom): My Make-Up Routine, Recent Purchases, and My Favorites! Just use the arrows to scroll through the items and click on any picture you are interested in! And if you scroll all the way down to the bottom (on both computers and mobile devices), you’ll see my 4 latest instagram pictures that are all shoppable by clicking on them!
And you can of course find my social media icons in the top right hand corner, so make sure you are following me everywhere so you won’t miss anything!
Okay, enough house keeping, let’s get to a great spring outfit!
I ordered THESE PANTS from Anthropologie a couple of weeks ago. I loved all the colors (great colors like coral, grey, mint, and blue), but I was immediately attracted to this mustard because I loved the entire outfit the Anthro model was wearing. What can I say, denim jackets speak to me. I loved the laid back but still super cute vibe of the whole outfit, and I already had everything in my closet to recreate it (so, adding the pants was kind of a no brainer). 🙂
The pants came in this week, and I love them (even though they are a darker yellow than they look on the website). They are comfy and fun, and they will be great to work into my wardrobe rotation that usually consists of jeans, jeans, and more jeans.
Here’s the outfit! How did I do?
I threw on my MUST HAVE denim jacket from several years ago, my cork wedges from last year, and my new white tee! For size reference, I’m wearing a 27 regular in the pants (I’m almost 5’4″ and didn’t need the petites), so I think they are true to size. They are from the Anthro pilcro line (they are a stretch cotton twill), and they are machine washable! I’m wearing a small in the jacket (so true to size). The jacket is quite fitted, but that’s how I wanted it. If you want it to be a bit roomier, then I suggest sizing up one size. I’m wearing a small in the tee (true to size), and I suggest sizing up a 1/2 size in the wedges!
This is a really good white tee. I am wearing a cami under it (I prefer to do that with white tees), but if this one doesn’t float your boat, I have a white tee review coming up sometime in the next couple of weeks! I ordered 6 and will do a side-by-side review of them, so stay tuned for that!
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
Since I loved the look so much, I wore it again just a couple of days later (I tend to do that)…but I mixed it up a bit and this time I wore it with my dark denim jacket and my favorite wood bead tassel necklace.
A couple more shots, with a close up of the jewelry and the shoes. I ADORE these wedges and I’m so happy they brought them back this year! If you have a really wide foot, I’m not sure if they’ll work for you. But otherwise, they are comfy and they go with everything! Remember, I suggest sizing up a 1/2 size. I’m guessing they’ll sell out again this year once it starts warming up.

Oh WOW! I just saw that these wedges now come in a black and nude patent as well! They’ve come in this floral and darling navy stripe for awhile, but I love the addition of the patent! Just click on the shoe you like!
That’s it for my new Spring outfit, but since it’s Friday (who am I kidding, I would do this any day)…here are some SALE ALERTS for you!

If you work in an office environment (heck, even if you don’t), this utility shirt would be an awesome addition to your closet. I have it in this black and a red/orange from last year.

Lou and Grey is also having a SITE WIDE SALE for 25% OFF your entire order when you spend $100…and they always have FREE SHIPPING. I was told by a sales girl that they never do site wide sales, so this is a surprise to me! I’m wearing a small in each of the tops, so I think they are all true to size.
