sunny days like the ones we've been having lately must be celebrated. i though lady spring might need a little more convincing to come visit us sooner and so i wanted to put together a whimsical outfit but with a twist. i started off with my floral tights. i guess i do that sometimes, creating outfits around a pair of tights. i don't always start with a central piece, like a dress or a top and work my way around that, the stating point can be anything from a pair of shoes, an accessory, one color or a hairstyle. well, now that i think about it, the starting point was actually the belt. i just picked it up from my mom's closet last weekend and i was really anxious to wear it. it seems that everytime i go visit my parents i borrow stuff from my mom's. the dress isn't quite the typical spring dress but i do seem to love neutrals regardless the season. for an extra doze of whimsy i topped things off with my little birds printed cardigan and i braided my hair on the side. to add just a tiny bit of edge to something that would have been much too girly for my taste i wore my studded boots. then i had lunch on a bench outside in the square and basked in the sun. it would have been a perfect day if i hadn't have to go back to work.
