Taupe of the World

Dress, Bracelets - F21, Shoes - c/o Santee Alley
This week, the weather has been balmy and warm, and I have not been able to resist making the most of it by wearing jean cutoffs and little spring dresses. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that I have so HAD it with winter! It finally has started to feel like spring, just when I was starting to think I couldn't take another minute of the frigid rain.

I picked up this little dress when I was in NYC. It was 40 degrees out at the time, and this sort of springy, Western floral print was exactly what I needed to remind me that warmer temperatures would be here soon enough. Please excuse my paleness. I'm working on it!

These are the second pair of shoes that I picked up at Santee Alley a couple of weeks ago. I absolutely adore them! I don't normally go for a sophisticated taupe-colored shoe like this one, but I love how its neutral color sort of elongates the legs (something my 5'1" frame needs!) and doesn't distract the eye from the focal point of the outfit, which is, of course, the dress. Sometimes the most understated of pieces can be the best way to tie an outfit together. Plus, I love the wedge heel, which makes the shoe comfortable AND wearable with a shorter dress like this one.

Looking forward to a nice warm weekend, checking out a mobile food cart festival and catching up with some friends for a yummy birthday dinner. Hope you all have a good one!

Awww pretty dress and the shoes are stunning! Peeptoes just dont seem to suit my feet, which is a pity as I always fancy them.

@daisymay Peeptoes suit everyone's feet! Even mine, which are wide, so not all my toes come out like they should. :)
@liana Thanks, girl...nude shoes are the best!
