The Outback

I know we still have a few weeks until the spring equinox, but I don’t think anyone told Northern California that. We’re seeing cherry blossoms in bloom, beautiful blue skies, and temperatures in the 70’s. And I am LOVING it! Today was so gorgeous I couldn’t help baring a little extra skin for the sun to kiss. 🙂  

This light-weight sweater is ideal for the winter to spring transition. The heather grey knit looks deceivingly simple from the front with it’s V-neck and mousy color. But from the back it reveals a whole other story… Literally. Abaft the unassuming top is a halter neck with a fun and flirty open back. Today is the perfect weather for an exposed back to bathe in the warmth of the sun.

I coupled the sweater with jean shorts that I made from chopping off the legs of an old pair of capri pants. The unfinished bottoms with my combat boots gives the look a slight Lara Croft feel. Chunky bracelets provide plenty of arm candy to finish things off. How will you style your “out back” tops this spring?
