OOTD - Seventies Bow Dress


I'm just going to say it - I'm over winter.  Despite this being one of the hottest winters on record, the week of freezing weather we're experiencing now has got me craving Spring in a major way.  As someone who feels most comfortable in dresses as opposed to pants, and heels as opposed to flats I feel as though winter cramps my style.  Looking at these photos taken last weekend when Spring seemed like it was coming soon makes my heart sing; the seventies bow dress, heeled over the knee boots and felt hat are so me.  The fact that a faux-fur stole was an alternative to a jacket was a huge plus. Move over, old man winter - I'm ready for spring to arrive.

Dress - Aritzia, Boots - Zara, Hat - American Apparel, Fur Stole - Forever 21



I think the colour combination of burgundy and a lighter pink may be my favourite for the year.  What do you guys think?




I'm officially over winter, and crave Spring to start feeling like myself.  What about you: do you have a particular season that you connect with?  Are you looking forward to Spring as well?  Let me know!
