I was feeling spring-y though it wasn't quite warm enough on Saturday. Tights and button-down to the rescue! Dressing temperature appropriately at this time of year is generally not my forté, as I tend to start shedding layers at the first sight of spring flowers. Don't expect this rare bout of practicality fool you, though. Later that evening, I found myself completely unprepared for the temperature drop. Oops.

Love the patterns of the dress and tights. They look so cute together. Also the heels are amazing.

Oh wow, this dress is amazing! And it's a fun combo with those patterned tights. I still haven't been able to figure out how to wear the white patterned tights that I have, but you always wear yours so well :)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

I am in love with this look. The patterns play off so well against each other and the shirt and tights make it so very feminine prep. Just gorgeous.
