Still dreaming

Of summer and of the outfit I dreamt up that never was;
And somedays while I work I will get the sudden urge to just google 'boat cardigan' or 'scalloped shorts' - it is inexplicable but compulsory.
Today, while we are still a solid four months away from summer, the shorts and cardigan appeared.
The Shearling (yes, that boat is furry) Boat Cardigan is at Forever 21 for $26 and these scalloped shorts for $30 can be found on ebay.
Do I dare?


Back in the present, where it is winter, I'm wearing a summer dress.

It never hurts to have something in your closet to remind you that you have warmer weather to look forward to, right?

I'm dreaming about warmer weather too, but mostly I'm glad that it's really not that cold out. Those yellow shoes are so cute and the shorts are very Chloe Sevigny.

Your first outfit is SO making me long for summer! Or at this rate, I'll even take spring.

Silver Strands said...

LOVE the scarf!

Jen said...

I'm in love with this outfit and that scarf lends the perfect finishing touch. I love remixing summer items during the winter. Just takes a lot of layering...haha :)

And I've been dying to try out scalloped shorts for the longest time but I just doubt I can pull them off.

Amber Blue Bird said...

I love the scarf and tights combination in your outfit. Those yellow shoes are amazing too.

Ali said...

Those shorts are such a cute pop of color and they would go with so many things! I'd get them over the boat cardigan. :) But heeeey, that's just me. <3

I love your scarf and your tights are too amazing with those boots of yours!~~ <3

I am sorry for my lame commenting skills, so much I've had to do this week.. and the week before! Ack, the two snow days have crammed together all my work into a crammation of not-fun-ness. I shall return. I LOVE YOU. /out

Alex Elizabeth said...

Ahh I love those boots! Summer dresses in winter remind me of warmer days, and I think I always feel a bit more cheery if I do that :) The cardigan is super cool but I really really like the look of scalloped shorts-- been thinking about getting black ones myself. I think you should definitely get those, the color is unique and I like the contrasting black buttons!

kris said...

spot on. you look fabulous.

Robyn said...

I so want scalloped shorts! I just feel like I have to try on shorts and pants, and I can never find cute ones anywhere but online.

TrophyBoutique said...

Those shorts are something you absolutely should dare to wear. Ugh, I didn't even mind the rhyme, that's how sure I am about those shorts!

Scalloped shorts are just, I don't know, like a MUST or something. They always catch my eye!!
