Spring into Color Blog Tour

Is spring here yet? It hasn't quite shown up to Wyoming yet, although the sun did show up for a few hours! Of course, later on the same day it disappeared and a few snowflakes showed up, but it was a nice preview!

I've been having fun revamping my wardrobe, and this tour theme gave me the perfect opportunity to show some new colors. A while back, I made a Weekender Tunic (5 out of 4 Patterns) out of a white(!) base French terry, which is very out of my ordinary, but I love it. It's a wonderful spring basic, warm enough for a cool windy day (and we have a lot of those) but light enough when the sun is shining!


I started these Real Deal Jeans (Winter Wear Designs) in January. This was actually my second "muslin", but I finished them completely, details and all, and I'm really happy with them. I was pleased to see that the color of my stretch denim just happens to be similar to the "lime punch" Pantone Spring color. Yay for being done with a pair of jeans! Now I've got the bug to make a few more.


I would never have picked this shade of green myself. I tend to stay with darker autumn tones, and I was happy to "spring" into something new with this one! The jeans go with several tops I already have. I'm really looking forward to adding more of the spring colors into my wardrobe. I have some cinnamon stretch twill from Simply by Ti that is pretty close to the "chili oil", and I've got my eye on another twill at Joann that has several Spring 2018 colors in the print. It's turning out to be fun to branch out and try something new, and I hope by the end of this year I have a complete wardrobe that I really love and enjoy wearing!


Hoping for more sunny days here! The bloggers on the Spring Into Color tour are bringing the brightness, so take a look!

    1. Thank you! I am positive I never would have picked this color before, but now that I have it I love it! It's so springy. And definitely helps having tops to wear with them; they go with more colors than I thought they would!

    1. It's easy to go for charcoal, black, or blue jeans - they go with everything! But it's fun to have something unexpected. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Reece! Bright colors are so fun, I don't know why I never went there before. For my kids, the brighter the better - I just need to get a little more adventurous!

    1. It feels like it! Good stretch, and a decent weight. I bought some (reverted to a dark blue, but at least it's a print!) so we'll see how it goes!
