I’m currently wrapped up in not one but two giant blankets procrastinating on studying for my Criminal Justice exam tomorrow wishing I weren’t so cold and that it would finally be river weather or at least warm enough so I can wear some open shoes instead of boots???? or like.. shorter sleeves and no more eskimo jackets??? I don’t mind Winter but after the foot of snow that dumped on Virginia last week I’m kind of officially over it. Aside from my comfort I just want to be able to be fashionable again! Well, at least try. I don’t get how European and Canadian and even New York style bloggers stay so cute while staying as warm as they need to… I just can’t do it. My Winter clothes are not cute.
The other day I decided to suck it up in the thirty-something degree weather and go out in one of my favorite Spring looks for this upcoming season. I initially was planning on going outside like.. you know.. outdoors but it was just TOO DANG COLD so I stayed inside of my apartment building’s parking garage. Haha.
There are some trends that I’m seeing for 2014 that are getting me sooooo freaking excited that I couldn’t even wait for it to warm up. One of those trends are midi skirts!!!! Being as tall as I am, I could never get into the high-waisted short trend no matter how much I wanted (or didn’t want) to and I’ve never really be able to pull off typical shorts and skirts because of my proportions. Now that I see midi skirts coming into style I can get more pumped for wearing less clothing because I’ll still look normal! This floral midi skirt from Lulu’s was the star of my first Spring lookbook look:
I also finally got my paws on a pair of minimalist heels that are going to be so flattering with lower hemlines and brighter colored clothes. These were soooooooo cheeeaaapppppp… $22!!! Also from Lulu’s.
