What I'm Wearing: Spring in My Step

Okay. So apparently Mother Nature is confused and thinks it's summer right now. Completely fine by me. I was even a bit warm in this outfit, and I know I am too young to be having hot flashes, so I will blame it on the heat wave. I literally ran back in the house after taking these pictures and ripped the scarf off and proceeded to put shorts on. I always giggle a little when I think about how the southerners must think of us northerners wearing shorts at the first sign of 60 degree weather. You would have been hard pressed to find many people wearing long sleeves on a mid 70s day, like today.

 On to the outfit. I adore this maxi dress. I might even venture to say it's my favorite. All of the colors in it make me really happy and also make the accessorizing options for this dress almost endless. Today I decided to keep it simple and casual with a coral scarf, sandals and a statement bracelet. Maxi dresses are so carefree and easy to wear. If you don't already own one, I would highly recommend them.

 Maxi Dress: Charlotte Russe, Sandals: Aeropostale, Scarf: Dress Barn (gift), Bracelet: Wild Iris

Would you wear this look?

  11. This is one gorgeous dress! So summery and the print is beautiful. Nice to hear the weather has improved on your side. The strangest thing - I lost so many of my Google friends, I had to re-follow most of them so sorry if I had been absent for a bit.

  21. Oh so gorgeous! I STILL don't have a maxi dress. Or skirt. What's wrong with me? I guess I always thought all that fabric would overwhelm me but this is so gorgeous on you! Or maybe it's that you're so gorgeous, and the dress compliments you perfectly.

  30. Yes Kassi, it is summer in Chicago! THe AC is broken in my building and it won't be repaired until mid-april and by then it'll be cold! I don't know what is the deal but my SF blog friends have been complaining of cold weather so we're getting it soon! Now...on to the florals, I like them on you and also the scarf is pretty too!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
