Springtime Monochrome

In anticipation of a chilly holiday weekend that usually signals the start of summer I've had to experiment with layers and color to feel summery while keeping warm. I love how blue makes white look crisp and clean and is far less dramatic than black. In my favorite summer dress and shoes with a sweater, denim jacket and socks to keep the chill off I'm ready for just about anything this weekend.
Opening Ceremony dress (bought at TJMaxx)
Free People sweater (bought at TJMaxx)
No. 6 clogs
vintage purse


  1. love this look! I did a monochrome look in the winter with all red. I loved it.


  2. You look so adorable! I love the sweater layered over your pretty dress. The colors match so perfectly it gives the outfit that cool monochrome look. Your denim jacket looks great with everything too!

    absolutely in love with this post!

    you're gorgeous and i love your outfit.

    The shoes are my favorite.

    I'd love it if you could check out my blog!


  4. Oh my! This is probably he longest I haven't been on here. Lovely look (love your jersey and jacket!) I think your socks are cute

  5. Love your purse! It adds the perfect vintage touch to an already lovely outfit.

  7. Um you found the dress and sweater at TJ Maxx??? Christ, I need to start going there. I always just get super overwhelmed and everything looks crappy and then I give up!

  8. I do too. Its always such a mess that I have to be in the right mindset before I set foot in there. When I found that Opening Ceremony dress that I had bookmarked and lusted after until it was sold out I was so surprised by my good luck. And the sweater was probably the best impulse purchase I've ever made.

    Just be ready to dig through crap if you go!
