dress: c/o persunmall (here)
Green is one of my favorite colors for winter. Maybe because it reminds me of pine trees, I don’t know, but I do know that I love it and this dress is no exception. Pairing a cute little skater dress with some brogues (or oxfords, depending on what you want to call them- I’m flexible) just seemed like the right thing to do. I do love me some brogues and tights.
Speaking of “winter,” these photos were taken last week, so they’re a bit deceiving. Last week it was overcast and a little gloomy. As of right now, the temps today and the past week have been in the upper 60’s and sunny and warm, soooooo. I usually despise January for it’s sulkiness and the whole fact that it’s not the holidays anymore and it normally rains all the time, but this year? Well, this year I guess I’m not too mad at January. Huh. Go figure. I mean, I’ve been sitting outside soaking up those glorious rays of vitamin D all this week! Hooray! Also, this baby boy is making it hard to be in a bad mood for long about anything. Thank God for that!
How’s the weather where you are? Is it wintry?
Do you call them brogues or oxfords or…?
I love this outfit so much. I usually call my pair of shoes like that oxfords, but they can be easily confused with oxford shirts that way. The weather here is surprisingly warm – I haven’t had to bust out winter boots in a few days.
The weather has been so weird!! Definitely not very January-esque!
I don’t know you do it, but every outfit you put on is so cute on you! Over here the weather has been ok but I know what mean. For me January just seems to drag on and I start to get more tired. But then excited because it won’t be long for spring which is like my very favorite. :) this year I am going to plant some tomatoes and other veggies.
Aw you’re sweet! :) And January has always just been my least favorite month. Meh. But I’m definitely not minding it lately since it doesn’t even feel like January!!
oh i love this dress! and im with you on the weather- ours is up and down! i call them oxfords, i think!
The weather is for sure all over the place!! And yeah, I used to call them oxfords but I don’t know. I like brogues for some reason. Makes me feel all Scottish and I like that haha :)
Katie, you are seriously the cutest preggo ever… mostly because you look like you just ate a big cheeseburger! :) So jealous of your tiny self! Have y’all picked a name yet??
Aww Jena, you’re too kind to me. I WISH I just ate a cheeseburger, that actually sounds so amazing right now. Haha look what you’ve done!!! ;) No, we haven’t picked a name yet. It is SO HARD! And like a really big deal, you know? Naming a human being?! Eek!
green is a great winter color. and i agree, i think of pine trees too.
today’s high is 70! it’s so deceiving though because it will be in the high 40s when i wake up, so it goes from bundle-up chilly to perfectly sunny and warm (but cold in the shade). i’m stuck in that phase of wearing sweaters and sandals lol.
It’s the perfect time for major layers, then! :) I love it!! And hey, sweaters and sandals? Nothing wrong with that!
YOU ARE ADORABLE.
And as such, are making me look bad because I don’t ever look this cute or stylish and I am not preggo. ;) LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Awww you’re so sweet, girly!!! <3 <3
Super cute outfit! I love that shade of green as well – it’s very flattering on so many different skin tones and in so many different seasons. It’s actually sunny in Vancouver right now! I’m sure it won’t last and that it’ll be covered up with clouds again by the time afternoon rolls around, but I’ve got a Justin Timberlake concert tonight so I don’t need the sun in order to be in a good mood!!! WHOOOHOOOO! ;)
Agreed, everyone looks good in green!! :) And whatttt majorly jealous of your JT concert! How fun!!!!
Love it! Would look cute with a leopard print scarf too ☺️ Can’t wait to see the egg oatmeal recipe either! Hope you’re doing well, you look fabulous ❤️
Oooh yes, leopard would look SO good with this outfit!! Good call! The recipe will be up on Sunday! :)
Super cute dress! I do like that shade of green.
The weather where I am is exactly the same as where you are. ;)
Hahaha that cracked me up. I suppose it is the same, isn’t it? ;)
Of course you like green, Katie! It suits your eyes wonderfully! May I please tell you something wonderful about the month of January?
It is when our baby boy was born. Exactly one year ago!!! I just posted about it and I feel jolly good. So naturally, I came to drop by at your blog. Now I can go to bed with a huge smile. Thank you girl! Sweet kisses to your boys!
Aw you are so sweet!! Thank you :) And I didn’t know that, happy birthday to your sweet baby boy!!!! That makes January an amazing month, in that case! <3
So cute as always! I’m jealous of your weather. I think we managed to hit the 30s earlier today? I miss warm weather!
Oooh brrr that’s cold!! Hey, at least it feels like winter there! We’re all sorts of confused over here! ;)
okay,i changed my mind.green is a nice color! this color never slip into my fashion brain before this..pathetic!! haha..and i called them oxfords.great weekend ahead..
I just LOVE green- it’s so versatile and goes with everything! :) Happy weekend, girly!
Aw thank youuu! :)
wow.. you look so pretty. :)
Hi Katie! I never know what to call those shoes. I recently got some very similar ones but I guess they are booties because they are high tops. But still flat. And they lace up. I don’t know. I guess…oxfords?
Love your style. Tights, oxfords & skirts/dresses were made for each other
