August Wrinkle x Trendy Teal: Transitioning to Spring Look 2

Blouse: Prabal Gurung   Jacket: thrifted   Skirt: c/o August Wrinkle   Heels: Rue 21   Earrings: c/o Too Sexy Store   Necklace: c/o Romwe (via latexfashion)   Belt: thrifted

Is this blue skirt from August Wrinkle not amazing or what? I'll admit it was tough to style it for the cold that remains in the air - I just want to bare my legs and say "Screw it!" to Mother Nature. But then I remember I'm supposed to be showing you how to dress for this chill and decided to cooperate. So fleece tights and leather jacket it is. Although even then, the jacket managed to wriggle itself off.
So Look 2 shows a simple way to make a springy skirt work for this odd, cool weather. Add some punchy florals and black accents to perfectly balance out your hot-weather look!

Haha, also, may I just point out that I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought myself something from the Prabal Gurung collection at Target? This was the last blouse left on the rack and it was a Small - my heart plummeted when I saw that, but I figured I might as well try it on anyway. And I'm so glad I did! It fits perfectly. It was $28 something with tax, which is the most I've ever spent on a single piece of clothing (note: I said clothing, not shoes), and it was worth the splurge! The graphic floral print and amazing black trim make me so excited to wear this into spring and summer. 

I don't wear these heels enough; probably because they're just a tad on the fancy side. They're the perfect heel too - high enough to add class to any outfit, but with a chunky heel so they're comfortable. Although I have to refrain from wearing them to school, since I have PE classes. Thus, I am rendered back to my usual 5'5" height. Which isn't too bad, but still, some tall people don't grasp that this means I have a shorter stride than them...

"You walk like my dad!"
"Um, what? How does your dad walk?"
"Really fast." I glanced up at CG. "How tall are you anyway?"
"About 6'2", why?"
*internally swooning* "Well that would explain it. Not all of us have long legs, you know!"
"Well, move those stubby legs," he teased.
At that moment, we reached the door we were both heading towards, and he opened it for me - so I decided to forgive him for that remark.

He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding

Ahhh loving this look! I love how the mint jewelry clashes oh so slightly with your top, but that's what makes it amazing! (like jazz music!) ;)

Ashley said...

I am absolutely in love with this blouse! I went to my Target but it was sadly sold out :( Boooo! I hate when that happens!

You styled this outfit perfectly for transitioning into spring! The bold print mixed with the bright blue looks fantastic paired with the leather jacket, tights and amazing shoes. Oh Linda, you sure know the way to a girls fashion heart :) Oh and PS, your hair looks AMAZING!

Can you just write a book? I feel like your stories about CG are perfect YA romance material. Swoon-worthy and adorable. I would totally read it. Can we say best seller?!

Ali Hval said...

Well, I'm sure he didn't mean "move those stubby legs" like THAT but still, he could have said something better. Hmm. Oh well, sometimes people don't even think about things, haha. At least he opened the door. ;)

Man, Linda, that skirt is so flowy and magical. And with the white belt, it just pops! You're quite the brave soul to venture out and wear a sleeveless top in such cold weather, but then again, we fashion bloggers are quite a rare, tough breed, yeah? ;)

Dude, what is it with us short gals liking super tall guys? (You've a got a few inches on my, I'm only 5'2. Hah, and then I had to go a marry a guy that's 6'4. We take picture together and either his or my head is cute out.) You story about the walking did make me laugh so hard, I have that same problem with my short little legs trying to keep up with long, fast stripes. (So sweet that he opened the door though!)
Can I just say that I really, really want your hair? Its so gorgeous, you have just been rocking the bangs, they look SO good on you!
