Monochromatic (See Jane Wear...One Color)

                                                       H&M jacket + scarf, c/o native.la top, Zara skirt + boots, Ray Ban sunglasses, Chloé bag

When I last wore this skirt, it was 80 degrees and sunny; I wondered if I could pull it off in Ohio, where it was 35 degrees and slushy from the freshly fallen snow.  It turned out alright, but it was a little too breezy for my liking--my legs will cold most of the day.  I may have to wait for temperatures in the 50-60 range until I wear it again.  The cold, however, won't stop me from dressing for spring.  The monochromatic palette worn here feels very fresh and spring-like to me and is a much needed break from my all-black winter looks.

saying goodbye to my dad, expert snow shoveler, after a great weekend.

How was your weekend?

You look soo cute! And I agree 50-60 might be better for a maxi (at least for us!) I think I bought the same one in a grey from Zara!!! I can't WAIT to wear it - hopefully sooner rather than later!)

Aww, I love the photo of you and your dad. And the outfit is great- it offers a welcome departure from the dark, winter colors and hints that spring is just around the corner.
