I am SO prepared for the transition to spring and not just mentally. I know… You are incredibly shocked by this news. In addition to my mental preparedness, I have also new sunnies. BRING ON THE SUN! I was looking for a new pair of oversize black ones and ended up deciding on these cat-eyes from Kate Spade. My daughter hates them. My son thinks I look like an alien. I don’t care. I love them. Full disclosure: I have prescription lenses, so my lenses are different from the non-prescription kind (i.e. mine are full black and non-gradient).
It’s supposed to actually make it to 40° today, so bring on the bikinis. OK. Actually, no. Never.
And no, you aren’t crazy, you have seen this dress before. I last wore it here with a leopard shirt underneath.

Ashley reporting in from the Arctic tundra here! HI! IT’S STILL COLD. In other “total duh” news, I love shoes. The calendar may say March, but the weather in Michigan is still firmly holding onto winter. Death grip hold. I’ve decided that Mother Nature is a big fat meanie and other bad, less civilized words. So, still layering here.
I picked up this jeweled sweatshirt late last summer from J. Crew on final sale. I had coveted it from the moment I saw it. I loved it SO, SO, SO much. And then I wore it and the jewels on the arms snagged the heck out of the fabric on the body of the shirt. Poop. I was stuck with it. I still love it, but dang it… Come on… Why you snag? Why? I spent a long time pinching the jewel bezels down and that helped some. Lesson learned here. No arm bedazzles in the future.

Casual Fridays are my favorite. Yes, I enjoy dressing all fancy-like, but I also love being comfy, so by the time Friday rolls around I’m more than happy to sport a pair of jeans to work. I will admit that the first thing that I do everyday when I get home is take off all my “day” clothes and jewelry and quickly don my stretchy pants. STRETCHY PANTS ACTIVATE!
The weather continues to be 100% winter-ish here in Michigan, so I’m still having to wear wool sweaters, long pants and boots. I’m getting mighty bored with my winter wear options at this point, but when the high is 15°F I don’t have much choice in the matter. I know you guys are sick and tired of hearing about our winter here in Michigan, but it has been exceptionally horrible this year. To add to the misery, the roads are absolute minefields riddled with potholes. I have had three flat tires in ten days from potholes. So, that has been fun.

I love Ikat print even though the word itself sounds like a cat hacking up a fur ball. Ikat. Ikat. Ikat. It makes me think of warmer days and tropical locales. J. Crew added some great new items this week in a lovely black and white Ikat print. I’m absolutely loving this shirt. (It will be mine. Oh, yes. It will.)

This shirt will be an awesome addition to my wardrobe for spring/summer. If that ever arrives here in Michigan. The 10-day forecast doesn’t look promising, you guys. So, anyhoo… Lots of ways to style this awesome shirt. I’d wear it like this. Or this. Or that or that. Casual or fancy-like. Yup.
Have a great day and stay classy!
PS – Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your comments with me.
February has been so very, very, VERY February here in Michigan. Very cold, very snowy, very icy, very horrible. I’m a fan of the sheath dress, but not a fan of being cold, so layers are required in the winter. I wasn’t in the mood to wear a blazer or sweater over my dress, so I opted to wear a striped Oxford underneath it. Win win. Except for the fact that I was still cold. Did I mention the weather? And the fact about it being cold? Because it’s cold. Are you picking up what I am laying down? Smell what I am cooking?
Where did I wear this? Work, while I was climbing the corporate ladder and business-womaning it up. BOOYAH.

PPS – Sorry for the resting bitch face. It was cold. That is my excuse and I am sticking to it.
