Dressing for Spring Weather in Winter.














     North Carolina weather is always unpredictable, but in the four and a half years that I've lived here now, I can never remember a winter like the one we're currently experiencing! December was our coldest month... many days I woke up to my car being frozen over. But after the New Year, it's been extremely mild! This past weekend, temperatures hit almost 80 degrees! What?! Next weekend again temperatures are due into the mid-high 70s. A huge years ago, we had one of the biggest Carolina snowstorms that I can remember over Valentine's week, and now it feels like late spring. Weather is a strange thing!


     Dressing for these summer-like winter temperatures is a bit strange, but it's given me the chance to break out some of my favorite spring clothes a little bit early, and I'll never complain about that! I'm absolutely obsessed with this pretty blue striped dress! It's under $25, and I love the sleeve and bow details. It's also very lightweight and just all around perfect for springtime. Unfortunately, it did just sell out. But luckily the same retailer has several other similar dresses- this one and the similar ones will all be linked below.



     Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! Single friends- be sure to check out yesterday's post if you haven't yet.
