Calendar Dressing




Sweater (Old Navy); Shirt & Jacket (Target); Skirt (Limited); Socks (Kohls);
Boots (Guess find at Marshalls); Glasses (gifted by Firmoo)
Watch (Michael Kors); Earrings (Nordstrom);

Let me be perfectly clear... I am absolutely freezing in these pictures.  And I don't care.  I've had enough of these ridiculous winter like temperatures. So I've decided I'm dressing for the calendar instead of the weather. Sorry Mom, I will likely get sick- but it's not my fault!  Spring is supposed to be warmer than 30 degrees. My tights have been overworked from daily wear and my winter coats need a break. Rex is going stir crazy because it's been forever since we've been to the dog park.  And I'm just going just plain crazy... hence why I'm standing outside in the cold defying the weather ;)

I'm SO over this weather too! I think your look is perfect for the transition from winter into spring (if that ever happens!).

How did you do your cuffs like that?! Very JCrew!

I'm with you, Heather. Enough is enough with this cold! Even though it's not so frigid here, we're still 15 degrees or so below normal temps. I need some sunshine!

Absolutely love this look. There's so much visual interest and it all goes together perfectly. Love the chambray under the polka dot sweater and the awesome patterned coat. Obviously a huge fan of the boots too!
Definitely agree with you... it's time to break out the warmer clothes. I'm ready to start wearing skirts and dresses! I guess I could take your approach: Will it to happen by wearing spring clothes! :)

Alissa said...

Absolutely adore this. I adore even more that you said screw it to the super cold weather and just took photos anyway. Sounds so much like something I would do, I hate dealing with winter weather in spring!

Suzanne Carillo Style Files said...

I know...this Spring is winter. Blech.

I just love that coat though.

Woo hoo, way to tell the calendar who is boss!!! I am right there with you - I went bare legs today since it should hit 50 this afternoon!

I love the sweater and skirt combo! And your socks poking out above the boots!! Overall great look!

Gloria said...

Ooh I have this sweater! Love how you styled it!

Maca said...

You tell 'em Heather! :) Love this look and really want to go bare legs myself!!!

Natalia A said...

Love the rolled sleeve over sweater detail very much. I wish I was brave enough to dress for the calendar - alas, I hate to be cold, so in my case all the spring clothes have to wait...

It's a good thing these boots work so well with this-at least your calves stayed warm? haha. This is gorgeous-I love the cobalt color on you, it's just so striking! Hope the weather warms up a bit for you-come on spring!

Michael said...

I share your craziness. I'm done with winter. I just can't take it anymore. It's cold and windy here today.

Valerie said...

You pull off the "I'm not freezing at all" look perfectly! That blue skirt really pops against the polka dot sweater. Gorgeous look!

Amen to this, sister! I'm SO fed up with this crazy winter weather! I'm in desperate need of some sunshine, and I'm more than ready to ditch my coat and winter boots! Now if only spring would cooperate!
You look fantastic in blue, you know it? :)

Trenchcoats to Tiaras said...

That's what I did yesterday! My legs were numb whenever I got into a building, just from the cold, but it was so worth it to just get out of pants and tights. I returned to them today, but only because I had ten minutes to get dressed for class.

I'm also completely in love with your sweater. I've been trying to find a polka-dot sweater that I love for like...too long, now, and I'm still coming away without. Maybe I'll have to check out Old Navy to see if they've got some brighter options...

I am sorry you guys are having such a long winter. :( It's actually kinda chilly and rainy here today...Texas weather can never make up it's mind!

Well, you've brightened my day! I just love this cobalt blue skirt on you. You've done a brilliant mixology here. Plaid, dots, a mix of textures and colours. Well done!

LOVE this polka dot shirt paired with that pretty blue skirt! And I've definitely been dressing for the calendar lately. I refuse to wear my winter coat anymore even though it's still freezing out. Spring needs to hurry up!

I love this outfit. It's so perfect on you.

We've all been there! It needs to be spring already, and if that means dressing inappropriately for the weather, than so be it!

Can't believe you still have all that snow there! Not that we are basking in the sun, temperature wise its pretty much the same! I know, this super long winter sucks!
By the way, you pics and outfit are truly calendar worthy!
Love the bright blue skirt!

OHHH SEXY SPECS - LOVE THOSE GLASSES ON YOU. Great cobalt blue skirt too - I'd love to add a Pencil Skirt in that same color. Hopefully I can find one from The Limited this Summer/Fall. Also that Polka Dot Sweater that so many bloggers seem to have, I hope Old Navy comes with its version of it this year so I can purchase it. Overall, a Fantastic Look.

Also, you can follow me by GFC or Bloglovin. I would appreciate it if you do. When I reach 200 followers I am also doing a Giveaway and I will make it a good one. ;-) Thanks Heather and Enjoy the Rest of your week!! Ada. =)

Nice outfit, love your use of colours too. That blue/cobalt pencil skirt is awesome.

Jen ♥ said...

Haha..I love it! I was going to say - you guys still have a TON of snow! We've still been pretty cold but got lucky enough to have like 3 days in a row of 60s so all our snow is gone. I don't blame you. I'm SO over tights & closed-toe shoes!

Love the color of the skirt BTW

Angela said...

Love it. You look amazing. I completely regret not buying more polka dot sweaters. They are the cutest. I hope there's tons of cute sweaters next winter. This skirt is amazing. Love the color.

Laura said...

I completely agree with you - it is just way too cold for Spring. I have sworn that I'm not wearing my winter jacket anymore, I don't care how cold it gets!

I really love your outfit! That sweater and pencil skirt is such an adorable combination!

oh my, i loveee these photos, they look soo fun!!! Yes, i am utterly and absolutely sick of the chilly weathers despite it being spring!

LOVE your cobalt colored skirt, it goes sooo well with the polka dot sweater:D

For some reason,i really like this line that you wrote " I'm dressing for the calendar instead of the weather."....hehehe it's soo true tho!!! But i've not been brave enough to do that yet so i'm still stuck with a coat, scarf,and boots! and i'm living in Hong Kong, which is suppose to be at least hot, if not boiling hot!lol

This is a great look. I bought a spring jacket like this one at www.burlingtoncoatfactory.com. They had such great prices that I couldn't resist. I'll definitely get a lot of use out of it this season-- and in the fall as well.
