Winter or Spring
















Hat: Forever 21 (under $16)
Shirt: Apricot Lane Boutique (old), similar here & here
Jeans: Madewell
Shoes: Old Navy (old), similar here
Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I am hoping this week goes by fast. For some reason, I am dreading this week. It may have to do with my extensive to-do list haha.

Chicago needs to make up its mind if we are Spring or Winter. On Saturday, we had snow. Yes it snowed and it wasn't that cold out. It went from snowing to really sunny to snowing to sunny. It was bizarre. So for odd weather like this, I try to find outfits that can transition from Winter to Spring. The ruffled hem, lightweight fabric, and light blue color of this shirt gives it a Spring-like feeling yet the  the long sleeve length makes it suitable for Winter and easy to layer. I would love to layer it with a chunky knit cardigan. One of my favorite accessories for Winter & Spring is a wool hat. The wool hat can keep you warm in Winter cold temperatures and keep you safe from Spring rain.

How do you guys dress for odd weather?

  3. Your title is everything - seriously though. I LOVE four seasons, but I hate this time of year. MAKE UP YOUR MIND WEATHER! Either stay cold or stay warm, stop with this back and forth it makes it very difficult to get ready in the morning! Anyway :) You look so chic! Love your hat!
