I love this adorable dress that I purchased near Christmastime this past year. I couldn't wait to wear it come spring. Well...spring is now here, yet it still doesn't feel like spring. For example, it's 45 degrees right now (definitely not ideal sundress and sandals weather). Being the impatient fashionista that I am, I just couldn't wait to take this dress for a spin - so I improvised and decided to add tights

Now, my go-to tights selection is the always-relevant black pair, but this time I thought a fun pair of purple tights added just the right extra touch to brilliantly complete this outfit. Plus, I discovered the perfect necklace that matches and a bracelet that matches as well. I guess it was meant to be! Just goes to show how there's always more than one great way to style a clothing piece...and I'll never get tired of the challenge

  25. Oh my Kat this dress is so you. I love all the hearts. The pop of color from the tights are super perfect. Teal and purple works great. I have never tried to wear tights other than black but I may have to push myself outside my comfort zone a bit.
