dreaming of spring

Friday, March 07, 2014







//Express portofino blouse/ J.Crew Factory dress (old) similar/ DSW wedges/ Express belt/ Marc Jacobs watch/ Loft bracelet (old)/ Kate Spade bracelet (cannot find online) love this//

I decided that I was going to just dress like it was Spring and hope the weather cooperated. Maybe not the smartest idea, but it was over 50 degrees yesterday so I'll say it's working ;).

I have recently started loving layering shirts under dresses to make them work for different seasons. I noticed bloggers wearing turtlenecks underneath dresses in the Winter. I do not own a turtleneck so I made it work with just a button up! I think it looks cute and that way you aren't breaking up the pattern of the dress with a blazer or cardigan. Now, I want to buy more dresses in this style so that I can easily wear shirts underneath!

A couple fun things! The winner of the Flourish Boutique giveaway is entry #176 Erin M. Congratulations, Erin! Check your inbox for an email from me later today!

There is also currently a giveaway going on to win the scarf I wore in yesterday's post! Enter using the rafflecopter below :).

  18. Love the beautiful bright colors in your dress, and I think you probably just didn't wear tights because you're trying to change the type of people that find you via searches, am I right? hee hee. :) -Gina
