Is anyone else (and their wardrobe) seasonally confused? As crazy as it is to experience 60-degree days in February, there's no need to have a wardrobe freakout. I've got the PERFECT summer-in-February solution for you - and it all begins with this beyond fabulous dress from Tobi.com. Welcome to The Comfort Zone, people!
A sweater dress provides you with the best of both worlds when the temperatures are giving you whiplash. And This style from Tobi is a must-have. Why? It's crazy comfy, super flattering, and surprisingly versatile. Example: while peep-toe booties are perfect for springtime, I've also worn black over-the-knee suede boots with this chic little number. See what I mean? This piece is virtually seasonless.
Peep-toe booties are THE transitional shoe to own. They shine the brightest during these times of seasonal confusion and can carry you all the way through fall. I'm loving nude for spring and summer and so are the runways - so jump on the bandwagon now!
What'd I tell you about nude? If these neutral-hued sunglasses haven't convinced you yet, then I don't know what will. Rightfully so, I'm obsessed with these beauties. Get your own pair here and prepare to feel like a supermodel.
Since my dress already has quite a commanding presence, I wanted to keep my purse small, minimal, and streamlined. My trusty Michael Kors crossbody did the trick as it polished off my outfit with elegance and sophistication.
Weird-shaped earrings are my thing right now, and I've been super into experimenting with my two piercings. Try breaking the mold and putting a larger earring in your top hole. Although I didn't do that here, it's something I've had fun with before - it instantly gives you an edge.
Keeping it simple, I wore my usual everyday jewelry. I know I should switch it up, but I wear these same rings and bracelets every day - and this rose gold watch is my most versatile (rose gold counts as nude, right?)
While some may call wearing a dress in February sans tights "jumping the gun," I call it "following my heart." If YOUR heart is also leading you prematurely towards springtime, a sweater dress is the recommended way to let your legs breathe without shivering to death. Voila - your pre-spring fashion prayers have been answered!
I kept my makeup light and fresh with a peachy lip by Bite Beauty and a shimmery bronze lid by Urban Decay. In spring, it's fun to enhance your natural beauty with minimal makeup and an easy-breezy beauty routine (like throwing your hair in a high pony LOL).
Can you tell I'm ready for spring?

You GUYS, this past weekend was drop-dead gorgeous, and I could not get enough. This magical taste of spring has left me craving warmer weather like never before - and you better believe I'm jazzed for March 20 (aka the first official day of spring). But in the meantime, I've got my trusty no-fail sweater dress to tide me over ;)
