It's a funny thing: when we had that freak heat wave back in March, I enjoyed the awesome weather, but was a little bit sad because I love dressing for cooler temperatures. But now that it's April, and nowhere near the balmy 85 degrees we enjoyed a month ago, I'm itching for summer. I suppose it's a case of always wanting what you can't have. Sort of like girls with straight hair wanting curly hair, and vice versa. (Me? I just wish my hair would pick one, instead of remaining perpetually in-between...)
As a general rule, I haven't gotten that excited about warm weather outfits in the past. I think that's partly because I love texture and layering so much, and partly because it was during autumn one year that I first started dressing in vintage-inspired styles. Essentially, I completely overhauled the way I dressed, and I think that shift may have set my inner style dial to "perpetual autumn."
But this year, I'd like that to change. Yes, autumn is my favorite season, but I'd like to branch out and start having fun with spring and summer outfits.
I just realized that I've already worn every single piece in this outfit in previous posts. It certainly wasn't intentional, but it serves as a good reminder when I'm feeling bored with my clothes: there's almost always some new way you can wear something!
The difference between a good wardrobe and a bad wardrobe has nothing to do with price tags or labels or number of items. It's all about creativity - remixing, you might say.
This is actually the outfit that goes with the next Dressipes post, but I thought these photos were good enough that they deserved a bit of their own spotlight. So what is the next Dressipe?
The most perfect homemade pizza ever! I absolutely can't wait to share the recipe with you all - it's one of my favorites. Can you see the resemblance between the outfit and the finished pizza?
