Dressing for the Season | Pink Gingham + Pearls

I was wearing…
I met up my friend yesterday afternoon for a quick iced tea at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and of course a blog photo session. One of the things we discussed was how it’s such an awkward time of year for choosing an outfit. Technically it’s springtime, but so far NYC has stubbornly been holding on to winter’s cold temperatures and the occasional snowstorm (yes it snowed Monday). All the stores, magazines and our fellow bloggers in warmer climates are now showcasing spring looks while we’re stuck trying to pick out an outfit in-line with the seasonal trends but also one where we don’t look completely out of place in our city.
I like this look because it’s transitional and can carry me through the awkward change in season. My trench and long-sleeved blouse keeps my upper body warm, while my mid-length skirt covers the top of my legs. As long as my upper body is warm I can deal with some chilly ankles.
How do you dress for a change in season? Anyone else struggling to put together looks at this time of year? Please tell me I’m not alone!

    Love this! I can’t believe such a pretty skirt came from Forever21! Sometimes those stores are so surprising.

  8. What a great combo! I love this skirt and I’m a total sucker for gingham in any shade, but the pink is really fun!

  10. Such a cute look, Katie! I’m loving the oxblood heels, they are stunning (and match that gorgeous Burberry bag perfectly!) I can relate to the tough choices for dressing in the weather, I live in Denver and can completely relate. You look lovely 🙂

  12. I love how you paired this outfit, the preppy gingham shirt is working well with the girly skirt. I also love how the trench coat hits exactly about the knee about the same as the skirt. Great outfit Katie!
