Spring outfit

After this cold weather, aren't you daydreaming about those breezy days of spring? This feminine-yet-tomboyish outfit would be perfect to wear on bike rides, to brunches and on picnics...
Red cotton dress that you could wear everyday.
Mini crossbody bag to carry lipstick and a paperback.
Wedge sandals for extra long legs. (Here's another similar pair; and these, too)
Striped espadrilles for outdoor adventures (or TOMS, of course).
French locket with snapshots of your loved ones.

I've been thinking the same thing! I'm so tired of my winter boots..

I actually love the short-white-shorts-and-plaid-top look in the top photo. It reminds me of Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina when she went sailing with Linus (Humphrey Bogart). All you need is those versatile dangly silver hoop earrings to close the deal.

Sarah said...

Love everything here. Sigh... Now we just have to wait for spring.

my goodness. I'm officially obsessed with those lockets. Great post! My post today is also a bit spring inspired... Maybe all these spring posts will make the season come faster :)

Notes from Holly St. said...

This is the perfect spring outfit! You could seriously wear that dress everywhere.

Kate Uhry said...

Too funny, I was literally skimming Jcrew and pinning spring images. *sigh*

Nancy Cavillones said...

We are definitely sick of winter around here, and at the dinner table, the conversation keeps turning to all the places we'll go camping and our annual decampment to Cape Cod. *sigh* hurry hurry hurry

allmussedup said...

We're having another bitterly-cold cold spell here in the Netherlands...spring and espadrilles seem VERY far away!

Kristen said...

Ahhh can't wait for spring! A simple dress would make me so happy right now!

Rachel said...

The dress is so comfy & cute too!

Lejla said...

I am dreaming of spring, too! I love those wedges, and just ordered this skirt the other day to wear with a tucked-in white tank:

I can't wait!

Love that top picture! The woman sitting on the dock almost looks like Jackie Kennedy. Also, that dress and locket are to die for.

The Jeffrey Campbell wedge sandals are lovely. I'm about to wear out my Topshop ones, and these will make a great replacement!

Dani said...

I had that exact Spring/Summer bug today. This is perfect.

MIchele said...

I recently purchased that locket, and it's now one of my favourite necklaces. It's adorable.

Punctuation Mark said...

I love the amazing a beautiful colors of spring clothing!

It's fun to daydream but at $461 for the outfit (with espadrilles) I won't be wearing it to ride my bike or picnic....darn:)

danielle19 said...

I just added this dress to my madewell cart yesterday! love it.

Heather Patton said...

I'm all about the slightly tomboy looks in spring. It's the season for going outside and getting a little dirty, and after a few months (or more) of being all bundled up, it feels good to break out into something more comfortable and freeing!

Mairéad said...

Haha - I think you have forgotten about your bump! I don't think you will squeeze it into that dress or go on many bike rides... maybe it will be a late summer dress for you!

love how much you look at Nordstrom shoes! I'm from the Seattle and miss Nordstrom shoes soo much its great to see I'm not the only one

Anna said...

It's so warm and sunny and Michigan today (well, 43F) that I keep thinking it's almost Spring ... and then I remember that we still have another month and a half (at least) of winter here!
I love these choices - I've been having a thing for lockets recently. I'm thinking about putting newborn photos of my 2 year old and my upcoming new guy (who'll be born in May) in one.
Speaking of which ... will you be doing a maternity style post? I hope so!

Devon said...

I love love LOVE that dress! It's so cute and flirty, but looks super comfy and flattering at the same time. My friend and I always love when spring/summer come; we have a shopping tradition called "Summer of the Dresses". It's silly, but it gets us excited for warm weather and new clothes. This dress fits right in!

Love the idea of the dress, but that material makes me feel bulky. Maybe best for someone that is very thin.

angharad said...

Damn you Madewell and your lack of international shipping. How hard can it be to just stick on a label and mail stuff?!

McKenzie said...

Very cute, definitely something I'd wear during spring x
