The best way to combat a bad hair day... to literally shove all of your hair in a hat. I was so emo this morning - it was rainy and my eyes were scratchy and I have so much work to do before finals! I tried to perk myself up with a so-bright-it's-obnoxious outfit.

As soon as it stops snowing, it starts raining

Beret: thrifted
Owl pendant (he's back!): Forever21
Vintage minidress: thrifted ($2!)
Earbobs: thrifted
Bangle: Forever21
Tights: Kohl's
Boots: Delia*s

Spring hasn't shown its face in Chicago yet. Today was chilly, windy and rainy...I don't think it will warm up for another few weeks.

Sweet find with that dress, it looks perfect on you! I'm sure you were a ray of sunshine for the wintery day. I tried to do the same - I live in Montreal - so I sympathize!

that certainly suits you
i'm soo jealous(in the good way though)on me that sweet dress would have donne the "sac a patate" effect.

My favourite part of the outfit is definitely the slouchy beret! :) Feel better!

Well played! It's just amazing how your beret and opaque tights tone down that bright patterned dress.

I don't know how you did it.
On anyone else, that dress would look tacky.
You pulled it off beautifully.
It baffles my mind.
