Fair Weather Floral

I feel like I shouldn't have to pretend that it's warmer than it is, but alas, I am. I get the feeling that everyone in Los Angeles is dressing like I would if I were in Connecticut, yet as I scroll though my Instagram feed, I notice all my CT friends out there freezing for the sake of spring fashion posts.  Thus, 55° and sunny is nothing to complain about.

I love this J.Crew dress, the colors felt so perfect for the fall when I paired it with leopard, while the bright teals and purples smoothly transition into spring with the simple addition of a white shoe. I'm really happy with these white Target mules. I've been reaching for them non-stop, because they have a low enough heel to be walkable, and are neutral, but still make a statement. They are on clearance for $14, so if your size is in stock, you probably can't go wrong.

Linking up with Pink Sole's How I Fall


  1. I am loving all the cute floral dresses right now and this one is so good. You look fabulous.


  2. Ooo this is the perfect spring teaser outfit! I have to admit though that when I go to Florida and I can wear spring stuff, I can't get the Midwest out of me! I always am wearing tights and darker colors because I was taught seasonal fashion rules!

  3. I still want that dress! Such a great floral, and in my colors!

  4. Love those white mules - they're definitely a statement shoe and the price is great, especially when you consider that, because of the colour, they might not last in pristine shape all that long (well, on me they definitely wouldn't).

  5. I passed on buying those mules when I was at Target in November and every time I see you wear them, I regret it. Every pair the store had in my size had a small manufacturing flaw, which made me question their quality overall and ultimately lead to my decision to leave without them. But now that I think back, I know that no one would know about those flaws but me and I could be the owner of a stylish and comfortable pair of shoes. Ah well, live and learn, I suppose. I'll just have to live vicariously through seeing you style yours ;)

  6. Love this floral dress! It has me dreaming of spring!!

  7. I love this! And such a cute little bag!

  8. The colors in your dress are beautiful! It's still super cold in Chicago, but this has me SO ready to do some spring shopping.

  9. Well hello gorgeous dress!! And I love the pretty white shoes you paired it with!

  10. That bag is adorable!! I love it!


  11. That is such a cute floral dress and I love the denim jacket with it - it's a combo I wear a lot in spring and autumn, a denim jacket is a nice layer to add to a pretty dress. And of course the florals here are perfect for spring, haha!

    You already know my thoughts on dressing for blog posts vs dressing for the weather - I can't do it and I have no idea how people can, I wouldn't be able to hide my discomfort well enough in photos, haha!

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

  12. Your bag is definitely my favorite part of this entire outfit - though I love it all. Has me craving springtime hehe!

  13. This floral print is perfect for transitioning seasons! I love the mules you paired it with.

  14. That dress is beautiful on you! I really like the colors and the length is perfect!

  15. This is such a cute dress!! I am loving the floral print and the colors!

  18. I love that dress (I have a top in the same print!) You transitioned it perfectly for Spring too!

  19. It is so funny how different climate people dress differently for the same exact temps. Like in the Mid-West 55-60 is considered super warm and totally Springy and we would wear outfits exactly like your pretty floral dress (love the bag and shoes, by the way). While the Floridians and Californians would be in parkas in 60 degree weather lol.

    Welcome by Thursday and link up with me, dear Lydia. =))

  20. I would take sunny and 55 in a heartbeat! It's all relative though :) This look is one of my favorite combinations for spring: a floral dress and a jean jacket. Those mules are so fun too!

  21. I love this combo on you dear, casual and feminine. The dress is so pretty on you too.

  22. Loving that floral print!! So pretty!

  23. This floral print is super pretty! I need 55 degree weather and all of the sun!

  24. Beautiful dress Lydia and I would have never known the bag was from Zara.
    I think you've been doing a great job wearing everything you packed!
