Dropping in with another touch of pink. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know about my obsession with blue and white. Yesterday I ran out to get a bunch of fresh blue hydrangeas for the house and decided to give my outfit a little touch of spring by adding pink gingham to my blue and white mix.
The other day I took my daughter and her friend to the mall for an afternoon of shopping. We happen to pop into an unlikely store when I spotted this super cute cricket sweater laying on a table. It was waiting for me! Clearly I had to have it. The baby blue color is so pretty and just perfect for transitioning into the upcoming spring season.
Cricket sweaters are to spring what traditional fisherman sweaters are to the fall. The sweater’s life began as a uniform for preppy men who played Cricket and as the sport grew in popularity the fashion industry assimilated the style and reinterpreted its meaning. Cricket season begins in the spring and lasts most of summer. Now is the best time to buy the sweater. I have a couple other cricket sweaters in white and unlike cable knit sweaters, these are the absolute best to style and layer with button downs. The v-neck allows for the shirt to feel comfortable without bulkiness.
Fun fact: this sweater is so versatile and unisex. If you don’t find one your size you can always opt for a mens’ version and size down.

I thought the pink gingham shirt was a good contrast to the blue and looks cute peeking underneath. You can easily play with all the spring colors for layering this kind of sweater. And when it gets too warm for long sleeve, opt for the vest. It too can easily be worn alone or with a short sleeve polo shirt underneath. And yes, it’s ok to wear white jeans anytime of the year…😉
