Outfit of the Day: Springing Forward

Last weekend we sprang forward in more ways than just the change in daylight savings time


Suddenly, the weather went from the midst of winter into full blown summer! The sun was shining and boy was it WARM! I couldn't help but get out some separates and dress for the occasion. 


Outfit of the Day (Saturday):

I've been taking sailing lessons through a local sailing club which I've been going to on as many Saturdays as I can manage. Unfortunately, we aren't allowed to bring cell phones or cameras on the boat (and for good reason as distractions would be bad-- not to mention water on the electronics would also be bad if we capsize). I'd imagine, the pics probably wouldn't be too blog friendly anyhow as we are geared up in wetsuits and foulies anyhow. But in any case, that's what I've been up to and so my Saturday activities otherwise have been limited. After my sailing lesson Tim and I did get out and about a bit to do some errands which granted me the opportunity to dress as I please. Seeing as the weather was so great I decided to wear my Trashy Diva Louise blouse in Crepe Myrtle and my Trashy Diva Circle skirt in chambray. Keeping it simple, I wore this with some basic black flats and off we went to the hardware store, Target, and to pick up dinner.

Outfit of the Day (Sunday):

On Sunday Tim and I went to a bbq celebrating several friends' birthdays. The party was going to be right on the water so Tim wanted to bring his jet ski for everyone to play with. The plan was to take the jet ski out to a nearby estuary where we could launch it and then ride it over to where the party was going to be. As fun as it was I did have to tweak my outfit a bit to make it jet ski riding friendly. And so for this day, I decided to wear some high waisted capri jeans by a brand called Fervour which I got from Modcloth several years ago, paired with a sailor tie top by Tatyana which I also got a couple years ago. To keep warm I wore this with a navy and white polka dot cardigan by Croft and Barrow from Kohl's from a couple years ago. For a finishing touch I wore this with a red belt which I took from one of my Hell Bunny dresses, and while I pictured this outfit here with my red Vans I actually just ended up wearing my flip flops all day.

And just like that, the winter is starting to rear it's head again as the overcast grey clouds dominate the days during the second half of this week. I know soon though it will be spring again. I'm so looking forward to the warm weather to come back again!

  4. I always love to see a casual outfit with denim - and that adorable blue blouse doesn't disappoint. I wish there were more things around in that pretty colour. Great pairing with the polka dots too :)

    1. Thank you CiCi! I feel like I've definitely gone more casual this year all influenced by yours and Porcelina's gorgeous outfits! It's fun to be able to change things up a bit sometimes :)
