dressed for april - SPRINGTER

Everything here is under $100 except for one item.  Any guesses?



I always find the transitional seasons both the most exciting and challenging to dress for.  There's usually a handful of elements which make these outfits tricky.  The biggie being weather, which typically is as unpredictable as your daily chosen image.  But, when done right, seasonally-confused outfits are fun to wear, full of layers and cleaver ways of mixing coming trends with past season's tried and true.

In Calgary, it's full on Sprinter.  Sunny with snow.  Making shoes tricky right now.  I'm leaning towards purchasing a pair of ankle highs.  Feet will stay dry and warm and my knee high boots can get a much needed break.  

1.  Vila Pink Vitoria Scarf 
2.  Gold Button Stripe Tee 
3.  Tortoiseshell Sunglasses 
4.  Kate Spade "Take the Plunge" Bangle
5.  Lodis Clutch
6.  Burberry Umbrella
7.  Vintage Boots 
8.  Skinny Jeans
9.  Rainy Day Jacket
until next time - ABCD

Lovely outfit, has a lot of my favorite colors in there. Thanks so much for following my blog. I do like your blog and am now following too!

I read your about me section and love that you play the classical violin. I play classical piano, haven't studied it in school, but my grandma taught me. I'm also a decaf drinker :)

I look forward to reading your blog!

When I clicked over to your profile page and saw "Cutting Edge" as your favorite movie, I giggled. Pretty awesome.

I don't do well at the transitional seasons. Especially the part about remembering a coat since it's warm(ish) when I go to work but will probably be in the 30's when I get off.

I am so obsessed with that orange red color right now. It's on my toes, my pants, the new dress I just bought, my cardigan... I cannot get enough of it. Love this inspiration board! We would totally share a closet in heaven.

i have sunglasses just like that but in black and i love them!

Little Red Hen House...if only you lived closer we could totally swap clothes. Remember however that my inspiration outfits are just as much a dream as me winning the lotto. Maybe then I could actually purchase half of those items.

And yes it's the umbrella that breaks the bank.

Copy and paste just incase you don't get the message at the end of my post too..
