As much as I'd love to say that our weather is 100% ready for spring dresses, maxi skirts and stellar heels....it's just not quite there yet. Instead, I am opting for ensembles like this little number for the month of April, since it honestly doesn't know what it wants. Some days are absolutely perfect for light, chiffon dresses and other days you honestly contemplate grabbing a pair of mittens on your way out the door. I think this outfit is the perfect combination for Spring...not yet Summer.  So...the first thing on my 'to-do' list when I wake up is check the weather & have my wellies ready for some slush fun.

I just discovered a cool online store that you have probably heard of... but if not, I feel like you might love it. It's called Francesca's Collections. http://www.francescascollections.com/home.do

Their jewelry is amazing and it's cheap. I just wanted to tell you about it =)

Simply Spring! :) I'm not quite there yet, since it has been raining and cooler in NYC, but once I get back to LA, I feel it will be in full bloom! Love that flowy, flower top and that ring is just lovely!

swoon...hunter boots are beyond perfect! and you're so right, this weather needs to decide what it wants to do! I have all these hot weather clothes and it's freeeezing right now (not literally, but it's "freezing" in SoCal terms)
