Spring Break(ing) the Rules

Spring hasn’t even technically started yet, but the weather didn’t really get that memo. I’m spending my spring break in Florida and I’m so excited because I get to spend the next ten days dressing like it’s summer. Yesterday I was lounging in my favorite bikini and summer wrap-cover up, and today I wore a sundress with heels and a floppy hat. I loved the look, so I just wanted to post something short and sweet about how to not let the “season” dictate your outfit! Here’s how to copy this look in the middle of March.

  1. Dress. Any long, flowy, lightweight sundress will the get the job done. I love these because they look so sophisticated but it’s really just a thin piece of fabric that makes you feel like you’re floating instead of walking. I bought this one for my trip to Italy last summer, as I knew the weather would be hot, but it’s working just as fine for Spring here, almost a year later. (Merona, $29.99)FullSizeRender-4
  2. Heels. I love, love, LOVE this look because heels are something you wouldn’t expect to see paired with a sundress, but it actually goes so well together!! I found this idea when I was browsing Vogue for one of my internships, and because I already owned these shoes I was SO excited to try it out. The heels instantly transform the outfit from “beachwear” to something you can wear out, because instead of sand and flip flops, you’re wearing a pair of high heels.

  3. Hat. Lastly, to complete the look I added a floppy hat. This was for two reasons. One, because I thought it went well with the ~summery vibes I was trying to give off, but also Two, my hair was a disaster. Lol. So hats are always good for covering that up when you don’t have time to fix or clean your hair.

Overall, I was very happy with this look and I suggest giving it a try. Or you could mix it all up and add your own twist. Let me know in the comments how you’re defying the seasons this Spring.

xoxo, JM
