Is It Spring Yet?


Boots, 9 West ( I love them); Top, thrifted; skirt, dress barn; necklace....three guess....
I'll keep this post short and sweet and spare you my verbose ramblings for today!  
The outfit on my left was perfect for a dance practice; I have a showcase coming up in a week and a day and I don't even have all of my choreography yet!  Marcel must have a lot of confidence to push things this close to the deadline....I hope it get it right.
Its a great dance and I have a super cool edgy/urban/industrial look planned.  I'm looking forward to sharing it with you!

This outfit doesn't look as great in photos as it felt.  Consignment shop sweater, thrifted Dress Barn skirt, turtle neck, Ralph Lauren during my bad girl credit card days.

In the old courthouse
Super comfy Clark shoes; love the detail

Lia Sophia 'Pixel' Bracelet


Lia Sophia reversible necklace......Navy...or...


.....white...

As you can see I was a bit nautical today.  I'm channeling spring...and the nautical inspired outfit fit right in with todays 40 something 'warm front'.

C'mon Spring!

  1. I'm curious to see this edgy/urban/industrial outfit you have planned for dancing in!
    Love the first outfit and how you've belted the top - shows off your hourglass figure!

  2. *sigh* Right? I'm so ready for summer, its nice that it's finally getting warmer and that the sun is staying up longer but I cant wait for 70 degree days. Soon, hopefully!
    I'm looking forward to seeing this dance look you mentioned, it sounds really exciting! And wow, good luck on the upcoming showcase! I always enjoy hearing about your dancing, it's so exciting to me and I can really tell how much you love it, you just glow in your dance photographs.

  3. I wish spring would hurry up and get here too. Excited to hear about your dance too. You piqued my interest with the cool and edgy. Have a great weekend! Heather

  4. Both outfits are nice. And I've experienced your point about how an outfit can look better/worse in real life than in photos. Not sure why that happens. Some of my best outfit-posts were of clothes almost unwearable in person.

  7. The pleated skirt look is so cute! You are a master at black-and-white combinations! Yes, indeed very cute details on the Clarks, and I suppose they are pretty comfortable too, a true win-win situation! No, it is not spring yet, but I have decided that anyway it is warm enough for my green coat now and time for a long vacation for my black! Happy Easter Lisa!

    1. Oh good...I'm glad you get to wear your green coat! It will certainly be a mood lifter!

      The Clarks are super comfortable...almost like wearing no shoes at all!

  8. Such a cute outfit Lisa. I really love that sweater.

  9. Spring hemmed and hawed over whether or not to really start here throughout almost all of March (it was starting to look like it was here mid-month, then bam!, snow and hail again!), but today finally (I hope!) put winter to rest once and for all, as the temps soared to an unseasonably high +25C (making for one of the most beautiful early spring days I've ever experienced).

    Great outfit! Love a cardi layered over a turtleneck. I'll need to remember to give that a spin when autumn rolls around again.

    Wishing you a gorgeous start of April, dear Lisa!

    1. Thank you Jessica. Spring has been a little testy here too in the Midwest. We had a gorgeous day today...but tonight the wind is whipping!

      Thank you for the compliment. I love that little thrifted cardigan.
