Well after all that warm weather last week my weekend was sadly greeted with a lot of rain. It's funny how once you have a taste of the nice weather and it's replaced with a miserable day it really manages to affect you (me in particular.) I think this was because all week I worked on the sunny days so I had planned a lot of outdoor activities for my weekend, including a 16km run as part of my training and a Spring photo shoot. Well I quickly learned when I was in a foul mood how I need to be able to adapt better and as I was taking my bad mood out on Dave I have realized I need to change how I feel because of the weather. Especially since here on the West Coast the weather can change so drastically.
I thought this would be a great opportunity to share my tricks for Spring layering since that sunny week saw everyone in shorts and dresses but we realized after that we should still have our cozy sweaters and jackets nearby. This floral dress from Topshop I bought in Ireland over a year ago and I have struggled to wear it through the colder months. Until I realized it looks great as a skirt layered with my favourite lightweight Zara sweater over top. Worn with a pair of tights and boots and a loose fitting utility jacket and you're set. You still appear to be Springy all the while remaining warm and cozy in your layers. If the weather changes you can take a layer or two off, revealing the beautiful floral dress underneath. I have to admit this is my favourite way of wearing this dress now and I plan on doing so into the summer with bare legs and white sneakers.
