It’s FINALLY starting to feel like Spring here. The weather is getting warmer and the snow piles are only a few feet tall at this point. It’s basically beach weather. And with the nice weather and snow-free sidewalks comes the opportunity to wear something other than jeans and snow boots.

The other week I decided to get really crazy and wear something I haven’t worn in a while – a work dress and heels. It felt amazing to have my bare legs see the sun, and Lord knows they need it. I mean, look at my legs basically blending in with the snow. Plus, it put a little extra pep in my step to be dressed up at work again. Be gone, jeans! Just kidding, I still wear jeans 95% of the time, it’s just nice to not HAVE to wear them.

    “The weather is getting warmer and the snow piles are only a few feet tall at this point. It’s basically beach weather.” Hahahaha I live in Philadelphia so I can relate 100% – it’s hitting the 50’s, so break out the shorts! Your outfit is great…it’s classy but feminine and those leopard heels are to die for!

      Thanks, Kath! Leopard print shoes are my favorite

  • Honeygirlk

    I absolutely love this outfit. I have a thing for pairing bold shades like red and even yellow with leopard print or animal prints to complete the look. I love the statement they offer. You look gorgeous!

      Thanks so much 🙂

  • Kristina | The Feminine Files

    I can’t wait until the snow is completely gone! Your accessories are fabulous. The earrings, the hat, the jacket and of course the dress is lovely too!

      I can actually see the grass in some parts and it’s such a tease!

  • cosmetopiadigest

    That red dress is gorgeous and makes a stunning combo with those shoes.

      Thanks so much! Red isn’t a color I normally reach for, but it does make a statement.

      I kind of need it to not be bald, so I’m going to go with no. But thanks for the offer 😉

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Love the dress and shoes! Great outfit. I wish the snow would melt here in Wenham. I still have 10 foot piles!
