Casual Monday

March 3, 2014

This is my I’m over the freakin’ weather outfit. Can’t wait for the days when I can just throw on a simple dress with some flats and walk outside ;) What I love about this dress is its simplicity and versatility. This look right here is obviously for the warmer days, but when it’s freezing, just layer it with knits, leggings, boots, and a scarf.
Happy Monday!

    This dress is perfection. And the flats look georgous.

    I love simple outfits like this. I can’t wait to not have to put on a million layers before walking out the door. Getting dressed takes so much longer these days.

    Ooo love those flats. I have some shoe shopping to do before the warmer weather hits, but who the heck knows when that’ll be at this point…. Flats are first on my list. :) happy Monday!

    I most certainly agree! I can’t wait to thrown on the perfect summer/spring outfit with my favorite pair of sandals, and just walk out the door. Warm sunshine giving me a friendly hello and perfect blue skies cheering me up are all I’m dreaming of really!

    What I would do to be able to just throw on a dress and flats right now. I am so sick of layers. This black dress is pure perfection. It could work for so many different looks all while being so simple. Going on my need to purchase list for sure.

    Tell me about it – the cold weather doesn’t seem to want to let up here and we’re expecting more snow later this week! I can’t wait to throw on any sort of dress…I’ve been living in sweaters all winter! Stay warm and happy Monday, V!

    right here in my city, we have -30 right now.. and it’s freaking march!!! I’m so over it as well!!!! aaahhh.. summer days, where are you?!!


    I’m with you…the weather has been ever changing. On yesterday I went inside Best Buy at 70 degrees, stayed an hour, came out and it was 50. I’m over it. On another note, I nominated you for the Liebster Awards. Be sure to check it out on my blog tomorrow, after 10am CST.

    oh my goodness i am right there with you about needing some warmer weather. i checked the temperature on my phone this morning at it was 2 degrees here in vermont! eekkk! What a great simple outfit that is, I love the black on black. I usually wear only neutrals in the winter but when warm weather rolls around I bust back out all my colorful pieces – but this chic looks is making me think that I should maybe try to keep a bit more of my solid pieces in my spring wardrobe as well!

    Victoria! I’m so behind on your blog posts! I didn’t realize you weren’t showing up on my blog reader and was wondering why I hadn’t seen any posts from you. Sigh. Well, I’m sorry it took so long for me to notice!
    Anyway…I love this casual look and I hope you had a beautiful start to your week!
