This sweater was a birthday purchase back in January, but it’s been a little tough to style. It’s made from a lovely, soft cashmere but is also super thin and tricky to layer due to it’s shape. Luckily, we’re having some actual spring weather instead of moving directly from -30 degrees to 85+ degrees, so now’s the perfect time to trot it out! I’m a sucker for skull prints, but love that this one includes roses as well.

Dressed for: A Happy Hybrid

Already Pretty outfit featuring Raw Earth Wild Sky dress via LISSA, black leggings, black platform booties, Rebecca Minkoff Logan Crossbody

Dress – Raw Earth Wild Sky courtesy LISSA the Shop (newsletter subscribers, remember to use your coupon code!)
Leggings – Yummie by Heather Thomson
Boots – Steve Madden Winola (almost sold out) – similar
Necklace – Kali Butterfly
Earrings – Jenni Leigh Creations
Bag – Rebecca Minkoff Logan (no longer available) – similar shape

It’s like a sweatshirt and a dress had a baby together. And I am so in love.

This dress is from Raw Earth Wild Sky, a company that makes all of its clothes with unfinished seams so you can customize sleeve and even hem length … WITH SCISSORS. Now that is my kind of alteration. Only downside is styles run quite small – this is the XL and I’d say it’s the equivalent of an 8 or 10. (Got a similar plus size option in the widget below.) Wore this to one of my monthly high-powered lady networking groups and was still comfy after my second round of pastry and fruit. Sweatshirt dress, you are a marvelous hybrid.

Dressed for: The Last of Snow

Or so I hope. It feels like spring is truly here, so today’s post is a multi-outfit smorgasbord meant to get any remaining snowy-weather ensembles out of the queue!

P.S. If it snows again before November, I will probably cry bitter, bitter tears. And I know I won’t be the only Minnesotan to do so.

Already Pretty outfit featuring utility jacket, David Bowie tee shirt, distressed jeans, Clarks ankle boots, J.W. Hulme tote bag

Jacket – thrifted via Twicesimilar
Tee – from David Bowie Is at the MCA – more Bowie shirts
Jeans – Gap Factory
Boots – Clarks (no longer available) – similar
Earrings – White Sands Glass
Bag – J.W. Hulme

(First seen on Instagram, where I declared it my Dean Winchester look.) I bought this graphic tee after seeing the David Bowie Is exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. I have seen three museum retrospectives that have left me totally speechless: Keith Haring at the Whitney (which actually made me cry), Alexander McQueen at the Met, and David Bowie at the MCA. I hope they decide to tour it around a bit more – it closed a couple of months ago – because it is comprehensive, educational, impressive, gorgeous, multi-faceted, and fantastically entertaining. Seeing it moved Bowie out of the “amazing” category and into “genius” in my opinion.

Already Pretty outfit featuring Boden coatigan, gray jeans, abstract print scarf, distressed leather messenger bag, Steve Madden ankle boots

Scarf – Nordstrom (no longer available) – similar
Cardigan – Boden
Tee – thrifted – similar
Jeans – H&M Conscious
Boots – Steve Madden Winola (almost sold out) – similar
Bag – Leather in Motion

Oh so very blown-out, that background, but it certainly makes the outfit pop. I’ve been trying to expand my scarf-tying horizons a bit, and here did my geometric scarf up in the Double Loop. A nice option to take some volume out and keep ends from dangling down.

Already Pretty outfit featuring Desigual scarf, black tunic, skinny jeans, Steve Madden ankle boots

Scarf – Desigual (no longer available) – more Desigual scarves
Tunic – thrifted via Twice – similar
Jeans – H&M Conscious
Boots – Timberland Earthkeepers Stratham Heights
Bracelet – Karin Jacobson

This tunic really is one of my favorite Twice finds. (Seen again here.) It’s lightweight enough to be worn all year, but was fun to do with skinnies and tall boots, a combo that used to be my go-to but hasn’t been in high rotation this winter.
