Impatient for Spring

What I'm wearing:
*anthropologie "Precious Materials" Cardigan
*Zara Lace Skirt in Aqua Blue (similar here)
*Hue Opaque Tights in Black
*LOFT Glitter Pumps in Pewter (similar here)
*YSL Muse Bag in Black Patent
*Missoni for Target Zig-Zag Scarf (similar here)

The little taste of spring that we got has me wanting more! I picked up this skirt last week, and have been dying to wear it. Figured I'd pair it with a cardigan and tights right now, but I have a lot of ideas for what to pair it during the warmer weather.

She's Got That One Thing

What I'm wearing:
*Madewell Chambray Ex-Boyfriend Shirt (this year's version)
*J.Crew Argyle Sweater Dress
*Joe Fresh Ankle Boots in Tan (similar here)
*Old Navy Mini Messenger Bag in Yellow

I'm not complaining here, but the warm weather right now feels very strange to me! Figured I'd squeeze in another wear of this sweater dress before it gets too hot. I can't wait until the summer is here, hopefully things will slow down at work and I'll have a bit more time to myself. Counting down till Memorial Day!

Stripes and Dots

What I'm wearing:
*Joe Fresh Striped Top in Orange/White (similar here)
*Forever 21 Mint Polka Dot Dress (similar here)
*DV by Dolce Vita Aisha Boots in Taupe
*Zara Sweater Coat in Navy
*Mulberry Alexa Bag in Oak

I can't believe that I have bare legs in March! I do feel like I'm dressed for spring a bit pre-maturely, but it's so warm in the city today I couldn't bear the thought of wearing tights or pants today. Now if only the sun will come out... Orange and mint is one of my new color combo obsessions, and of course I'm always a stripes and polka dots fan! So I combined all of the above in today's outfit... just because I can.

Some have been asking me what I've been doing with my hair, so I just wanted to share that I've been curling my hair, but instead of using the clamp, I've been wrapping it around the barrel. I know that's nothing new, but I'd never done that before because I didn't realize how easy it was! I've been playing around with my curling irons lately and I use a few different sizes depending on how wavy my hair is. I've been using both the 1" and 1 1/2" John Frieda Definition & Curl Curling Irons. My hair also gets less curly, more wavy by the time I make it out of my apartment, I feel like I always take these photos right after I do my hair so the waves are a lot tighter. To be honest I'm in desperate need of a trim at the moment, so I feel like curling it hides that a bit!

Ultra Violet

What I'm wearing:
*anthropologie "Lean Lines Tunic"
*AG "Farrah" Skinny Crops in Ultraviolet
*Forever 21 Necklace
*Jessica Simpson Leopard Patent Pumps
*Rebecca Minkoff Matinee Bag in Glazed Almond

This ruffle tunic is probably one of my favorite purchases ever from anthropologie a few years ago. I usually pair it with plain black leggings, but decided that I'd go with a fun color today. I've been loving the bright pants trend for this spring/summer and have wholeheartedly jumped on the bandwagon. My drawer looks like a pack of Skittles exploded in there!

Kelly Dots

What I'm wearing:
*Forever 21 Sweater in Kelly Green (similar here)
*MICHAEL Michael Kors Polka Dot Skirt (similar here)
*American Eagle Ankle-Zip Booties in Black (similar here)
*Mulberry Alexa Bag in Oak
*J.Crew Bubble Necklace in Sweet Papaya

This polka dot skirt has been sitting in my drawer for a very, very long time. It was a gift from my lovely sister from her days as an intern at MK, but the longer length proved to be difficult to style. As someone on the shorter side, I tend to go with shorter hemlines to at least give the illusion of longer legs. But of course I'm a sucker for polka dots, so I thought I'd give it a shot today. Pairing it with kelly green and coral kept my look bright, but the dark tights and boots keep it seasonally appropriate.
