All the pretty Spring fashions are on the racks and are oh so irresistible! And my Spring wardrobe is whispering sweet nothings in my ear as I long for warmer temperatures so I can bring them out of the closet and into the sunlight. But alas, it is still too cold to wear short sleeves and dresses without leggings. One way to start wearing those Spring dresses and stay warm is to layer them over jeans.
You have seen my LulaRoe Carly dress on the blog before here in the beginning of Fall when the weather was just starting to cool down. Today, I bring you the Winterized version of my floral Carly! I threw it over a pair of cropped denim, added these adorable booties that have been begging to be worn for almost a year, layered on a long cardigan, and a scarf for some extra added warmth…and my short sleeve Carly was ready to go. Bright and bold Spring floral dress ready to wear in 30 degree temperatures. (Although the day I wore this last week was that freaky day where we had temperatures in the 60’s…then it dropped into the 20’s the following day. And tomorrow, we are expecting below zero temperatures. So cold. Brrr….)
I love the way the high-low hem of the Carly dress plays with the slightly flared hem of my cropped jeans. The raw hem of the denim adds a little bit of edge to the whimsical print on the dress. I added a subtle stripe in my scarf for some pattern play. (I don’t think you can even see the stripe in the scarf. It is a very light tan stripe on cream background.) The buckles and two shades of tan on my boots inject some extra interest. I literally threw this outfit on in a rush mostly looking for comfort, but I am super pleased with the result. And now I am hankering for a new Carly!
