Ahead of the Curve

"Wont you be cold in that?" my sister asked me as we headed out the door. No, I don't think so, as I'm still very much a Connecticutian where partly cloudy and 65° equals bare legs, no question.

She then went on to ask if I'd be alienating my readers by posting spring looks in January. Even though at this time I might normally be posting outfits in my heaviest of winter layers, I know in a few weeks everyone, even those still freezing Connecticut, will start posting spring fashion at the expense of the feeling in their fingers and toes. This year I'll just be a bit ahead of the curve.

  1. I do love all that California greenery! And jealous of the warmth. Today when Christian left the house (at 8:10am) it felt like -15 outside....AHHH!! I have to go out in a bit to get ice melt for our sidewalk

  2. I don't know about anyone else, but I must say that, far from alienating me, your bare-leg outfits give me hope that spring will eventually come again someday, despite the fact that I'm currently shivering indoors on a day when it is "warmer" than average at -16 degrees celcius. Taking any pictures at all right now means rearranging my apartment, so it's fun to see someone really getting to enjoy themselves and fashion in the winter.

  3. I have that purse too and it's one of my favorites! Love the way you styled it!

  4. You look so cute!!! Those shoes are to die for!

  5. I'm all for the Spring photos! They definitely reassure me that warm weather will be coming in the future! Plus this outfit is too cute!


  6. Very pretty Lydia ! I could use a white wrap top like that.
    Enjoy the weather :)

  7. Even I'm starting to long a little for spring and nicer weather so I love seeing you in bare legs and a bit of a spring time look. You're ahead of the curve and I'm pretty convinced that's a good thing.

  8. Love this classic look and honestly since coming back to florida I've been pretty much wearing spring fashion. It is what it is.


  9. That's a lovely wrap top and I like the white with the blue denim skirt! :) It does look very spring like, but I've never been someone who would dress just for the blog and not for the weather!

    Although it does make me laugh when it's the end of winter here and it's coming into spring, and so I'm still wearing layered looks and everyone comments on how interesting it is I'm 'dressing for fall already' (as it's the end of your summer). I would never be able to layer up in the heat just for a blog post, it's hard enough trying not to look hot and bothered and have a sweaty glow wearing summer clothes in summer, haha! I say wear what you like, and what suits the weather - you wear the outfit at the end of the day, you have to be happy with it!

    Hope that you had a wonderful weekend :) I just posted my weekday wear linkup, I'd love you to join! :)

  10. Love this look!!

  11. At least you are comfortably ahead of the curve! I always end up doing a few spring looks early, but I certainly don't love it. I am always too cold! You look beautiful! I just love the texture of that top!

  12. Oh I am longing for spring and all that it brings! Including spring attire. Cannot get here fast enough! Love your little bag gal - so stinking cute!

  13. These photos of you are absolutely beautiful! You have me itching for spring with this outfit. Love the bright whites with the denim. So classic!

  14. Alienating?? No way. Making us jealous? You bet!! But hey, everyone lives in different climates and that's the best thing about this global community!!

  15. Love your winter white sweater and shoes! This is a great look for a warm winter and spring!

  16. This is such a cute look! You're lucky you are ahead of the curve and have great weather to wear this! It is sub-zero temps in Chicago!

  17. We were below freezing yesterday and doesn't look like it's getting any better in the next few days. I wouldn't mind some 65' right now.


  18. I am actually enjoying this spring like look, it is giving me something to look forward to!
    Love your top!

    xx, Elise

  20. Yay spring is coming!! Love the denim skirt. I’ll be putting it on my list

  21. Hehe Kudos on getting ahead of the curve. I can agree with what you said. I am in disbelief that stores are promoting swimsuits these days while in the midst of winter! But you know what, not every one is experiencing winter so I can see why. Love this spring outfit! Your denim skirt is cute and that straw bag is adorable! Loveeee!

  26. Love the white mules - and its so funny to think how you adapt to living in cold weather like we do!
