I recently enjoyed a tease of spring when we were in South Carolina for a few days.  Fortunately, the nice weather followed us home, as it’s been unseasonably warm in the A lately.  I’d be lying if I said I’m not giddy with the thought of sitting on a patio somewhere, sipping my glass of favorite rose, even if it’s only February.

And as I look forward to spring, I can’t help but think also about my spring wardrobe. Yes I hear Meryl’s voice ringing in my ears, “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” when I type this, but really, I can’t think of a better nod to this warm weather than this pink floral dress by Draper James!  With it’s fit and flare silhouette the Dunaway Vines Bow Dress is ultra flattering and effortlessly feminine, making it SO fun to wear.  Along with these under-$100 velvet heels, blue Les Bonbons earrings (less expensive version HERE) and Celine sunglasses, it’s impossible not to feel excited at the thought of permanent warm weather. 

While I love that the dress is ultra girly, as many of you by now know, I love playing with extremes.  Downplaying an ultra feminine feel with a stronger masculine one like my moto leather jacket ands white fringe bag.  This navy blue leather jacket has proved to be quite the versatile piece, fitting perfect with even the girliest of dresses to ripped up boyfriend jeans.  Plus the fact that it’s navy makes it a more year-round piece than your black leather.

All in all, I’m loving this whole look just as much as the weather.  In fact, I’ve already donned it twice, and it may possibly make it’s third appearance on Easter Sunday. Tell me friends, what pieces are you most looking forward to sporting this spring?!  Truly, MKR
