Wore this for a VERY busy day working at Corset, and had to lose the jacket for at least part of my shift. Also regretted the tights, but didn’t have time to take them off! Spring transitional weather can be absolutely confounding. I do try to follow my own advice for making seasonal transitions seamless, but when it’s totally freezing in the morning sheer patterned tights just seem ludicrous. And by afternoon I’m melting.

Anyone else fighting with shifting weather? Any sneaky layering tips to share?

Dressed for: Sabotage

I’m doing it. I’m piling a bunch of snow-weather outfits into one post because the snow is now gone and I don’t want these to go unposted. And doing this is TOTALLY going to make it snow. Possibly as soon as tomorrow. I can’t even help how evil I am.

I feel like I’ve worn a lot of black lately, so I hesitated to post this outfit on its own … but I really did love working the rich burgundy from the scarf print back in through the tights. And this Karen Kane dress is proving to be a workhorse. So nice to have a super basic, comfy black dress with sleeves!

I hit a handful of charity shops during the UK trip last fall, but didn’t end up finding much. I’ve got a gorgeous L.K. Bennet skirt that’s too light colored and lightweight to wear yet, and this adorable star-print tunic. I wore it in a very similar mix a few months back, but like it SO much better with the addition of the like-colored belt.

Wore this for a shift at Corset before I finally admitted that any heel at all was going to make me a grouchy, limping mess by the end of the day. These boots are amazingly comfy, but I am in constant motion at the boutique, so it’ll be flats from now on! If I remember right, the day I wore this leather skirt to work my boss wore her leather pants. So, ya know, love that.

Now let the April snow begin! MUAH HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

Dressed for: April Showers

Already Pretty outfit featuring star intarsia sweater, striped Rachel Pally maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Logan Crossbody handbag, long pendant necklace

I avoided the “stars and stripes” cliche and went right for the weather-focused one instead. Couldn’t even help it.

It was a balmy 75 degrees yesterday, but late last week we had this: Sleet, ice, and about 8 inches of snow. And that’s spring in the Midwest for ya. I have grand plans to pile all of my remaining snow-on-the-ground outfits into a marathon Saturday post, but fear that doing so will bring a blizzard upon us. I’ll probably do it anyway. I’m happy to be the scapegoat for this fickle weather.

For the record, this is a floor-sweeping maxi and I wore it INSIDE all day. Not the best skirt for slogging through sleet and snow, but that’s what we had when photo-taking time rolled around!
