Dressing For Wacky Weather

It was 65 degrees on Sunday, 65 degrees in JANUARY. Totally and utterly nuts for Buffalo, even with the past two years winters being incredibly mild.

I'm wearing shorts, no winter jacket, no boots, I'm wearing shorts! Grant it, I am layering the shorts with leggings, but I think you get the point. I was given the Broad Minded Clothing shorts from my friend (and boss) Julie Ann and they are pretty darn cute and comfy. You can purchase them here.

I'm not usually one for tucking my tops in, but I was feeling playful, and I was digging the sailor-ish vibe going on pairing the shorts with a long sleeve striped top. My shoes weren't the most chic choice, but since we were going to some antique shops, I wanted to be comfortable. Yes, comfort sometimes out weighs fashion when I want to enjoy myself. *Wink* 

Monday was another day off for Derek, since he's back to his old schedule (Sunday and Monday off, woo!) we try and do fun activities and get out of the house. Unlike Sunday, it was much colder and I needed to layer. 

I went nuts with patterns and I like the way it turned out! I purchased this skirt dress from Target and wore it for Christmas Eve dinner, once again I got it at a super price. I had admired the dress in-store when it was full price, but held off because the white sorta scared me away. I tried it on when the dress went on sale and I knew it had to be added to the closet. It's so easy to wear, to layer, and I really like the geometric patterns.  Could 2013 be the year of the patterns? Eh, who knows.

The dress came with a fabric belt made of the same pattern, but I put on a skinny black belt with a silver buckle to break up the dress. I do enjoy a good belted in waist! 

Derek and I went to the Buffalo Museum of Science to check out the Egyptian Mummies and all the other exhibits, it was a ton of fun! Here is my silly video of me 'broadcasting the weather'. Hahaha! Oh boy.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Love the dress! I want one - Target here I come!

    1. I bought it over a month ago, so good luck! The only thing that sucks is that the buttons fall off! I need to reinforce!

  2. I saw this dress @ Target and was like "eh...", but it looks so good on you, like it was made for you.

    1. Thank you! It's definitely a weird print, but something "spoke to me" hehehhee!

  3. I like the pattern-mixing outfit, I think it turned out really well.

  4. Searching sailor boots for a graphic image I'm working on and found the beautiful top image. I have to say the other photos made me curious enough to check out your other posts. I'm off to check them now keep up the posting :D

  5. Was searching sailor boots for a graphic image project and found the beautiful pic on top. Wish I both knew both how to dress better and you could help with men's wear, God knows I need someone to tell me I look bad in something.
