You guys, Daylight Saving Time has got me like whoa. Anyone else having a hard time with the one hour time adjustment? It seems silly that it’s just an hour difference but does it make a difference!
Even though the first official day of spring is still technically a week away, I’ve always considered the beginning of the spring season to start as soon as the clock’s make the shift forward. I’m beyond thrilled with the recent warm weather Chicago has been blessed with; I’m 100% over wearing tights at this point. With a renewed interest in my wardrobe, I’ve done quite a bit of shopping over the last two weeks. When it comes to my new wardrobe staples, I’ve been on the hunt for items that can work double duty – appropriate for the workplace but items that can also shift into a fun night out.
I picked up this navy blue dress earlier this month at the big Shopbop sale for under $100 and so far I’m beyond thrilled with the purchase. The A-line style is perfect for my pear shaped figure and the breathable light fabric make it a great base dress that can be easily styled up or down. Layers are key to appropriate spring time dressing in the midwest, you never know when Mother Natures throws a curveball at you.
Last weekend we experienced weather in the upper 60’s, so I ditched my coat and tights and styled the navy blue dress with my favorite french silk scarf (that I normally wear in my hair) and vintage wedges. A few months ago I found out that I had an allergy to metals and therefore my accessories game has been off point. While I normally don’t wear scarves, I’m starting to embrace fabric as an alternative way to accessorize my outfits. I still miss wearing jewelry but the alternatives are pretty fabulous too.
So what are you guys looking forward to this spring?
