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.

  3. 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 :)
