When it’s 65 in March

Well people, if you live in the Philly area you know that at one point before the wind became unbearably cold again we were teased with a sliver of spring heaven. It was 65! (Sun’s out guns out am I right?)  What better way to spend the day than avoiding homework to hit the park without tights!!! This hasn’t happened since what, September?

Any hoo, Spring I swear is almost here, and with spring comes all the joys of spring dressing. This is personally my favorite season to dress because frankly it’s the only season both jackets and sandals function together.

(Okay I wasn’t wearing sandals, but I could tell mother nature was trying to trick us.)

Dressing spring is so simple, unlike the complicated layering required for winter. Ditch the hats, gloves, scarves, and parka for a maxi dress and jean jacket. That’s all you need to look fabulous! Accessorize with a statement necklace and some moonies and get outside!

My favorite maxi’s for this season have a great all over print. They make a statement while still looking  effortless.

Take it to the streets and soak up that much needed vitamin D. The winter blues are over…well almost. Spring is around the corner which means, its almost practically summer.

Julia loves mixing prints, especially retro ones and her pin-upesque style has me inspired. From her nude heels to her bow tights, this girls got it going on! Her makeup routine usually involves cat-eye liner and some truly red lipstick.   Some gingham and high waisted shorts paired with sheer bow tights encompasses her unique look. Im obsessed with her closet full of fitted dresses, polka dots and thrift store finds.
