Pom Pom Dress

"I know I can achieve fantastic things in my life."

Forcing spring, is what I call my insistence on wearing warmer weather clothes before it's truly warm. So with a little finagling, like a longer knit dress with over the knee boots and wearing this light jacket as part of the outfit and not my actual outerwear, I force spring. It's always funny how differently I approach 54° in April vs how I approach it in October.

While it wasn't planned, the last time I wore this dress was in October, and I took photos at this same location. Clearly next time I wear this dress I need to get a little more creative.

  1. I definitely try to force spring a bit too. By March and April I am so thoroughly sick of the cold dreary weather I will try anything to make it feel more springlike, especially with clothing! Love that pretty dress on you! Wearing a jacket as part of your outfit is one of my favorite ways to make things work in early spring.

  2. I totally know what you mean, Lydia!! But sometimes it's because I get tired of what I've been wearing and want some variety. Besides---it's chilly in the mornings!!

  3. This is a great dress! You look lovely.

  4. Maybe it's more like the power of positive dressing? As in, if you dress for the season, then the season will come more quickly? I know I'm reaching, but I've also done the same thing many times and know that I will be doing it far more often when I'm back living in central Canada next winter. And I will be taking some inspiration from this look, because I love the idea of a mini dress with OTK boots but now that I'm thinking of it, I've never worn my own OTK boots this way and that has to change!

  5. Yes,warmer weather can become your state of mind while it does arrive !
    I like the combination and absolutely love your hair.

  6. Haha, that's so funny that you wore it to terrain both times! I do love it there *sigh*

  7. I have been forcing Spring since New Years Day! I really love this look, great transition look, for now and later!

  9. Nothing wrong with forcing a season - and I think you've done it beautifully here. That dress is really lovely.

  10. Haha! Today I wore a ruffle tank top from last summer because the sun was out but added my trusty field jacket because when I walked out the door it was STILL too cold! Love the combination of the girly dress with the military jacket!

  11. That dress is so pretty! I like how you made it winter appropriate with the boots. I would be forcing spring too. By the end of winter, I'm so over it!

  17. I love the way you styled this dress both now and back in October. Great jackets! I also like to "dress for spring" in order to make it come faster, lol.

  20. That is a cute dress and I like how you've layered it more for Spring :) It's autumn here but we have cool mornings and then summer temps in the middle of the day, so I really haven't been able to layer as much as I want to. I'm hoping we don't have an extremely cold winter to make up for our milder autumn, ha! I want to layer, but not that much!

    Hope you are having a lovely week.
