Let’s face it. I’m clearly not a secret agent (are you so surprised to hear this??). But, as my friend pointed out, from these photos, maybe I could be a secret agent- hiding in the shadows under a bridge. Frankly, the fact that it’s above 15 degrees in Chicago means that I’ll be hiding in the shadows, hanging in the sun, basically anything outdoors- as long as weather is permitting. So, I guess that means that I’m a secret agent sneaking up on Spring in these photos…making sure She’s here to stay.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) You guys, you won’t believe this. I saw this sweater online over the weekend still marked at $60 on sale. What? I paid $7! Unclear what is going on there, but I’ve seen this quite a bit with stores like Banana Republic and Gap. I know some people can find amazing steals online, but in those stores, I tend to find way better deals in the store. If you have the time, my recommendation is to check out the stores’ clearance section. It’s worth your while to save significantly more!
2) This sweater is definitely what I consider to be a transitional sweater. It’s not too thick and it’s very bright. I decided it worked perfectly on a day when the weather really wasn’t spring, but w3asn’t quite winter. I pack away a few sweaters every spring because they are simply too thick for spring. However, I generally keep my thin sweaters out at least until summer, because you can get away with wearing them past winter. I think an easy way to transition this look into full-on spring would be to ditch the tights and add strappy sandals. Easy as that, you guys!
Anyone else keeping out their sweaters a bit longer? Loving a peplum sweater?
