Paloma

scarf: World Market, dress: thrifted, leggings: Walmart, boots: JCPenney

I'm sure everyone else who is experiencing snow in April is just as irritated as I am about it, but I'm taking the opportunity as a perfect excuse to wear this new sweatshirt dress and boots for what I hope is the last time this year! Plus this dress let's me join in on Heidi and Marissa's spring pantone link up since today's color is paloma - a shade of gray. My favorite! :)

  1. Love this dress! And you are a patient soul for wearing boots--I refused to wear them today, even though it was definitely cold enough. I'm so glad you've joined us again this time! :)

  2. Holy cow, I was just complaining about it still being cold in Texas, I can't even imagine snow. It's almost MAY for gosh sake's! I've become obsessed with sweatshirts in recent months and you have no idea how jealous I am that you have a sweatshirt that does not limit you to the couch or a gym (I prefer the couch.)

    You paired it perfectly with the tights and boots and I love your bright scarf! Sending you warm thoughts!

    1. Thanks Ana! I'm so thankful that we've had some gorgeous weather since then so I can't complain too much anymore. :) This dress was such a good find...I can't wait until I can just throw it on with some cute flats and no tights, maybe even some cute sneakers on the weekend. :)

  4. I love the idea of sweater dresses, but I'm afraid they would just look frumpy on me. I think the scarf was a great way to add some interest to this outfit, and keep it from looking plain or frumpy!

    1. Thanks Kate! I've found that I like the looser fit for dresses recently, and a blazer is my go to idea for adding some structure to an outfit.

  5. Yep, snow in April is just LAME! But we did have snow in May last year, so I'm just hoping that doesn't happen! This dress is so cute! I've never had a sweatshirt dress, but it sounds like a very cozy idea!

  8. I think I need a sweatshirt dress - it looks darling, but is as comfortable as pajamas...that's my kind of dress!!! I love it with the pink scarf as well :)

  10. Girl, where have you been? I missed you. You look lovely in such a fun and comfy striped dress. I hear you about the cold and the snow. Though no snow in my parts, it has been so freaking cold. I knew doing a 30 for 30 challenge in April would have been a weather-related challenge too.

    Anyway stop by when you like and Happy Easter! <3 Ada.
