Bare Ankles

Yesterday I attended a blogger event in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, and since it was only ten minutes from this cute spot in Old Weathersfield, I met Meg early so we could take outfit photos.

I really love the old homes in Connecticut, even though a good many have been transformed into businesses, as long as they are preserved I'm happy, and then I feel far less uncomfortable taking photos in front of them. (On the rarest of occasions I've taken photos in front of a single family residence I've come to regret it.) You can't read the year on the plaque in any of these photos, but this home was built in 1767, and I really admire the care and detail that went into it.

Despite having a frigid and windy Saturday, driving away from the shoreline on Sunday gave way to a far more spring-like day. I always struggle with what to wear during transitional weather, will I be too warm or too cold? Should I dare to wear a dress, or resume the safety of jeans and a sweater? Bare ankles and a cozy sweater felt like the safest bet, but it's looking like April will be more welcoming to bare legs and maybe even bare toes if I put that much stock in the ten day forecast!

  6. Such a great spot for outfit photos, and I am loving the blush and grey in your outfit. With the white pants it looks so spring-like! I know you're waiting for it to warm up, but I'm looking forward to it cooling down, haha! Just like our hot summer, it's becoming a very hot autumn!

    Hope you had a great weekend :) The weekday wear linkup is live on my blog, I'd love you to join! :)

  11. Dressing for transitional weather is more or less impossible to get right all the time, as far as I can tell. The weather changes so quickly and it's not like you can bring a change of clothes or shoes everywhere you go. I mean, you could, but that would be crazy. I wore a lighter coat on Saturday and froze in the morning, but by afternoon found it almost too hot. It's really a time of year when you can't win, but at least you can look cute. I love this combination of grey sweater and white jeans.

  14. I actually think this is the perfect look for transitional weather. Your top is very winter while your bottoms are very spring. Stunning!

  22. This time of the year is always so confusing with what to wear! I'm from Georgia so we can get away with a lot here and when I lived in Boston I was super confused!!
