What month is it again?

Believe me, I'm not complaining one bit, but I cannot believe they are forecasting a high of almost 50 today here in MN.  On January 5th.  Wow.  It's just mind blowing.  But again, I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth - driving is a breeze, no shoveling, no heavy bundling up in coats, I'll take it for now!  I hear real winter is coming back in another week or so.  In the meantime, since the temps are like Fall, I pulled out my favorite thrifted dress from this fall to wear today!

I have really enjoyed finding different ways to remix this dress, I just love the colors in it and it has just been so versatile.  My only complaint today is that I've been dealing with a little static cling with my nylons.  Oh well.

So are any of you in other parts of the country having an odd winter so far?  Are you like me and like the warmer less snowy weather?  Or do you wish it was colder and snowier?

We had been originally planning a getaway to a warm destination this winter but ended up pushing it back due to finances and in a way, I don't mind, there is nothing to escape from right now!  

Man did I spend this entire post talking about the weather?  I must be getting old!

Linking up to Thursdays are for Thrifters today at Spunky Chateau - since I'm wearing a few thrifted things today!

  1. I like that print. I don't know why this winter has been so weird, but I'll go along with it.

  2. Very cute. I am totally digging this weather here in MN. Not a fan of the cold!

  3. pretty thrifted dress! everyone i've talked to around the states is having a milder winter than normal.

  4. Gorgeous dress! I think this silhouette is great on you. A full skirt + structured jacket looks great. Hooray for taking advantage of the warm weather. It's definitely been abnormally warm. I'm not complaining too much. I just hope that doesn't mean a meltingly hot summer.

    Also I think weather has a great deal to do with how we as fashion bloggers choose our outfits, and why. I think we all talk about it so people don't go "OMG you're wearing THAT in the middle of winter?!"

  5. The weather is great up here, too! So great! I always, 10 months of the year, wear slips under my dress or skirt to try and reduce static cling. Plus always remembering to put on lotion in the morning!

  6. The weather's been crazy here (in Kansas City) too--it was in the 60s today. The 60s!!! But it's a good excuse to bust out the pretty dresses like that one!

  7. Just found your blog and saying hi! Your dress is super cute. I live in San Diego and we had 75-80 degree weather all week! I was like "Is it summer?!?" I'm laughing at us SoCal people, though, because at 50 degrees you can wear a dress with bare legs while at 50 degrees I need to bundle up! We're weaksauce, and I commend you! :)


  8. I love the print on your dress. It's so pretty! We've been having weird weather here too. It's been warm and we haven't had any real snow yet, just one dusting.Thanks for linking up with Thursdays are for Thrifters!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
