WEAR WHITE NOW

You have the green light to wear white, right now — that old Memorial Day rule is simply outdated. If you’re not ready to completely jump in, wade in instead with a chunky knit sweater. It’s just the right weight for chillier days, and perfect for brightening up your favorite skinny pants in olive, grey or denim from last spring.

  • “Pickford” lace-up pullover, $118 at Tommy Bahama
  • Skinny cargo pants, model’s own
  • Sugarfix by Baublebar wrap bracelet, $16.99 at Target

CLEANSE THE PALETTE

Mixing and matching neutrals — chambray, grey, blush, navy — adds up to a pulled-together outfit. It’s the clothing equivalent of the “no makeup” makeup look. A pop of color isn’t necessary here because the beauty is in the subtle color palette.

  • Chambray button-down shirt, $29.99 at H&M
  • Blouse, model’s own
  • Levi 711 skinny jeans, $54.50 at Macy’s
  • INC layered necklace, $29.50 at Macy’s

  • Vince Camuto blouse, $99 at Macy’s
  • Anne Klein necklace, $46 at Macy’s
  • Curvy skinny-fit jeans, $69.50 at Loft

ABOUT OUR MODEL: Meet Shawna O’Brien: mom of two, lover of high heels and, unbelievably, not a professional model — just a real gal here in Indy! Shawna works in marketing/communications at Classic Cleaners and is an instructor at Jazzercise in Geist. She and her husband, Patrick, have two kids, and together they like bike riding, boating, movies, volunteering, family game night, neighborhood bonfires and being cozy on the couch.

For this shoot, we asked Shawna to bring a few favorite spring clothes that she already owns and we peppered those in with new pieces. After all, that’s how most of us get dressed: by mixing the old with the new.
