April showers

I have a feeling I'm going to exhaust every possible dress and boot/sock combination I possibly can before the end of this wet cold spring. I was wearing a pair of gold and black sparkly socks that were supposed to be above the top of the boots, but I forgotten that I'd pushed them down earlier and didn't pull them back up for the photos.
April showers
Normally my coworkers say little about my outfit choices, but today three people complimented my necklace. I guess it was a good choice.

I have that necklace and I love it! I love how you paired it with the black and white. It's not even warm enough here to even think about going with out tights.

I loooove boots + dresses. I find it so effortlessly chic.

And HOLY MOLY YOU LOOK INCREDIBLE. I'm LOVING this dress. The print is simply AMAZING. It's so graphic. It reminds me of modern art. Thus, you are art. Well, that's cool!

I can see why you got complements on that necklace. It's amazing!

DaniellaBella said...

I love boots and bare legs! It's such a temporary look because usually the shoulder seasons aren't too long... not this year though!

Gracey said...

The necklace is perfect with this.

I love the necklace! Also you always have the cutest dresses from Avon. I never knew they sold such cute clothes!

Mochachocolata Rita said...

I adore the touches of turquoise. I agree with your coworkers :)

Alex Elizabeth said...

Oh man I really want to see your socks, promise to wear them again? I like your necklace too, been seeing a lot of fringe or fringe-like jewelry lately and I might get some for some 70s inspired looks! P.S. I'm so disappointed you didn't win the necklace contest, I thought for sure you were going to win but the panel picked someone random :( Thank you so much for entering and totally unlike everyone if you want. I thought you definitely had the best entry.

Yeri said...

I can see why you got so many compliments! That turquoise is gorgeous on you! And I also love that you "toughened" up the feminine look with a leather jacket.

And is it summer yet?

Burning Skies said...

I adore this outfit! Everything from the jacket, dress and necklace are awesome :)

this free bird said...

I was just thinking you have to have a massive closet...I don't think I've seen any of these pieces before and each is wonderful on its own and together. The blue necklace just ties it all perfectly. Great jacket, too!!

xo,
C

Ima said...

Josie said...

At least the flowers are like a bit of sunshine!

Bonnie said...

Before you even said anything about that amazing necklace you are wearing, I was going to comment on how much I love it with that dress.
Then, you mentioned it and ruined my hopes of saying something original.
DANG IT.
But I still love the look. <33

Love love this outfit from the turquoise accessories to motorcycle jacket and dress combo. You look GREAT!!

Shea said...

I love that dress! And the turquoise accents are so pretty--they stand out against the black and white.

Danielle said...

Nautical is one of my favourite looks. One of my earliest memories is wearing a navy blue dress with a white midi collar. It's such a classic and timeless look.

Also, the turquoise is the perfect touch. Great outfit!

Claudia J said...

I love your jacket! you're lucky you can still wear jackets and boots:( The weather here in California is not letting me wear my nice cold weather clothes.. Lovely look!
