Last Chance for Winter Style.

Top: Lands' End // Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters // Shoes: TJ Maxx {found online here!} // Vest: LOFT {older style, similar here} // Sunglasses: {old, similar here} // Purse: Forever 21 // Earrings: {old} // Necklace: ILY Couture {on sale!} // Lips: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie 

     Charlotte's weather has been all about the ups and downs this winter! We will have a few days of frigid temperatures that remind me of Maine, and then before I know it, it's back in the 60s or 70s. Too unpredictable, and it can make it hard to dress!

     This past weekend, it was sunny out, but on the chillier side and quite windy. I knew that I wanted to get a little bit more use out of some of my favorite winter fashion pieces, so I threw this outfit together for a birthday lunch for one of my sorority sisters. The pops of bright blue with the flannel, purse and sunglasses make the outfit more appropriate for the spring transition season! But it still kept me warm and cozy through the harsh winds as well. Win-win!

     This week is absolutely insane for me- I have midterm exams and projects today, tomorrow and Wednesday, and very early on Thursday morning my friend Caroline and I fly out for our trip to Disney for Spring Break! I need to get my packing done ASAP. :-)

  4. I love that vest! Disney sounds like so much fun!

  5. I love the mix of textures and patterns. The teal is super cute! Xoxo Mindy

  6. Good luck on your midterms girl! I can totally relate to the contrasting minute Seattle is bright and Spring-y the next it is rainy and freezing!

  7. lOVE how your sunnies match your you planned that! Too cute!--Katelyn

  8. The combination of the plaid shirt and vest is really daring! Boston has also been really up and down in terms of winter weather; I hope spring is a little more consistent, so I don't need to bring my winter coat when I go out!

  9. Your vest is just perfect! Good luck on your midterms. You are going to do great!!

  10. Love how you mixed the prints! Gorgeous!
