{it's 40+ degrees out? i'm wearing a dress!}

i am super eager to put my winter coat away for the year,
along with my winter boots, scarves, mittens, etc.
so eager that the first day we had temps over 40 degrees i wore a pair of sandals.
and my feet were really cold (shocking, isn't it?)
the second time, i wore this dress, which i recently acquired from target.
you can't see my feet, but this time i begrudgingly forfeited the
sandals for ankle boots. 

dress : target | cardigan : anthropologie | headband : old navy | tights : urban outfitters

oh, and see those adorable little earrings i am wearing?
those are from the beautiful and talented laura, designer behind along for the ride
(and writer behind this blog of the same name). they are the perfect finishing touch to probably the majority of my outfits, love them.

laura's shop is filled with simple and lovely accessories with a touch of whimsy. here are some other pretty things that catch my eye.

{peony hair pin - the perfect shade of green}

{bias tape rosette earrings - navy}

{stacked hair pin set}

{bias tape rosette ring - mustard}

you can see more lovely accessories here.

hope you all have a splendid weekend! mine will be filled with cleaning our 
long-neglected house, tackling our massive laundry pile, 
working on new product, enjoying a lunch date with a friend 
and date night with the hubby :) 
yup, i've got it all planned out.

here's to being productive when all i really wanna do is go away for the weekend!

I'm eager to put all the nasty Winter clothes away too. Love the earrings. Oh and don't shed the clothes too early, you don't want to catch a cold and be sick when the Spring weather finally hits!

I can not wait for the temps to rise here too. Although I have no right to complain. We never get below 55 here. But it's still a little cold!! :)

We've had some days recently when the temp has been up in the 60's and even 70's. It's been heavenly! I love this warmer weather. I, too, am anxious for Spring to be here for good!
I love your dress, and that headband is so cute!
