Look how happy I am to have some warm-ish weather! I'm actually smiling. Ha, ha. Seriously, it's amazing how warm 42 can feel when the sun is shining. Next week is calling for the 50s. Woo-hoo!
As far as what I'm wearing, I love when outfits come together as organically as this one. This is not at all what I planned on wearing when I woke up this morning. Then I saw this blouse hanging on my Etsy rack - I had it listed in the store for a few months and it never sold so I just let the listing expire. I thought I'd try it again (I wore it a few times before I decided to sell it) and really loved it. I don't quite know why I thought I wanted to sell it.
The shoe/sock combo was inspired by all of the spring collections I've been seeing with socks and sandals. I stocked up on some lightweight socks last time I was at Target and really love them. If you're looking for some, I'd definitely check there. I think technically these are "trouser socks". I'm not usually one to wear bows in my hair but this one was inspired by the Orla Kiely girls in the spring 10 lookbook. I'm not completely sold on it, but I did like the way it pulled the skirt and top together.
