At this point in the season, I never want to see my jeans ever again. I want to put on a pair of shorts, a maxi skirt, or my favorite dress for class. While it is starting to get beautiful out here in Rome just in time for spring, it is not quite sundress season yet. The many pictures of people on Spring Break that are taking over my social media sites seem to be getting to my head. I want to join in on the dress kick too!
This Fashionista has inspired me to pull my dress out from all the way in the back of my closet and just wear it already. A dress doesn’t have to be worn alone for goodness sake. The Fashionista is wearing a great basic white dress, but it’s what she has paired it with that made it appropriate for the March weather in Rome. Layers, as always, are key. Start with your favorite spring dress and add on some cute tights. If your dress is basic enough you can even add a pair of bright colored or polka-dotted tights which both seem to be a big trend this season. Layer on a light spring jacket, open sweater, or closed oversize sweater to complete the look. Don’t forget the cute accessories like this Fashionista who added on a pair of retro sunglasses and a light scarf.
Join me and pull your spring dress out early from your closet. I promise it won’t be frowned upon if you follow my suggestions. As a take away note, this Fashionista demonstrated how important layers are because they really can change the whole look and feel of an outfit. So just do it already; get dressy for class!
