Every year around this time, I get major spring fever. I crave color, pattern, basically anything that can't be classified as a neutral. Taking twenty minutes to pile on the layers every morning is getting pretty old (was it ever fun?), and I'm easily bored with the contents of my closet. Black tights, you will not be missed.
So when my husband surprised me with this Peter Pilotto for Target dress on Valentine's Day, I just couldn't wait for sunnier days.
A fitted black turtleneck adds extra warmth without bulk, while black tights and closed-toe pumps keep the look polished. (And prevent frostbite. Really.) This is what spring style looks like in Chicago right now, you guys.
Style Now, Style Later: I can't wait to wear this dress with bare legs and a peep-toe shoe. A tailored blazer and D'Orsay flats work well from 9 to 5, while strappy cage sandals and a stack of bracelets bring it up a notch for date night.
