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?

Lucky that you have such nice weather! It’s still pretty cold here around 30 degrees but I would definitely wear that top when it gets a bit warmer! Love the detailing on the back, I’ll probably wear it tugged in a full skirt (maybe floral?) Have a great day J. Frost! 🙂 xo~ Lena
I haven’t been in 30 degree weather in a loooong time! LOL. Great idea about tucking the top into a full skirt! Be on the lookout for that in a upcoming post. 😉 xo!
Yes hunnnyy, yes to all this and that back???
LOL! Thanks, doll! 🙂
Oh the back on that is lovely! Unfortunately I can’t get sassy with my sweaters over here haha I need them totally for utility purposes 😉
