Spring style: Reese Witherspoon rocks a cute leafy look

By Sarah Kelsey

Looking for a little spring inspiration? With the season's first day officially here, actress Reese Witherspoon chose the perfect time to don this adorable leafy ensemble. The 38-year-old star was out in Los Angeles on Wednesday (March 18) with a bounce in her step.

The Oscar nominee paired a high-waisted pinstriped skirt with a leafy green crop top. To accessorize the look – and to offset the femininity of her clothing – she wore a chunky gold necklace and an arm full of gold baubles.

The mother of three lengthened her legs with wedges (very similar to the ones Kate Middleton loves) and she capped everything off with a white fedora that came complete with a bright pink ribbon.

In terms of makeup, Reese kept her blond locks loose and ensured her makeup was minimal (a big trend for spring) save for a swipe of bright-pink lipstick, which perfectly complemented her hat.

The actress looked to be relaxing after having an incredibly busy 2014. Not only did she star in and produce the Oscar-nominated Wild, but she also produced the hit Gone Girl and starred in three additional movies: Devil’s Knot, Inherent Vice and The Good Lie . Her next feature film is Hot Pursuit, a road-trip caper with Sofia Vergara.

Reese also spent some time building her profile on social media . The star often pops up on must-follow lists thanks to her witty and visual tweets, and even told Vulture that interacting online is one of her favourite pastimes.

“It’s a great way to communicate with people, and I’m actually having fun with it. For an actor who doesn’t ever get to see my audience, it’s a great way to correspond and talk to my fans.”
