ON THE COLOR BLOCK

Is it spring yet?! I mean, this has been the Coldest Winter Ever! Kudos to you if you read that book in high school. I'm so ready to pack up my winter wardrobe and loose some of these layers and be outside! Since it's not quite spring yet, I'll settle on ditching the stockings - shh, don't tell my grandmother - wear a cute bootie and my favorite BCBG leather jacket that adds that edge to any outfit. Is it just mine or do all grandmothers enforce the, "you need something on your legs" rule?

This is the perfect outfit that is still end of winter, cusp of spring appropriate. I picked up this dress last year from LOFT and it's really different for me because there's color involved and a lot of it, but I liked it! The vertical stripes are slimming which is a plus since I'm strutting a couple extra pounds and I added another high school favorite which is the white belt to create even more shape to the dress. Finally a red lip from my favorite, The lip bar and my hair is a flat twist with a sponge roller on the end.

What do you think? Is something you would you wear to send off winter and walk into spring with?
