Yellow Belly

Sweater: Urban Outfitters, $10 // Dress: Old Navy, $15 // Socks: Courtesy of We Love Colors // Shoes: Forever 21, $30

This is what I wore for yesterday's rather chilly weather. Rather than thinking with dismay that it should be warmer at the end of April, I tried to disregard the season, approach my closet with an open mind and ask myself what I'd like to wear for a day in the fifties. This cropped sweater didn't get much wear during the winter, and I thought it would play nicely against the black and white base of the dress. From there, I added the stockings to keep me warm and complete the look. It's funny how over-the-knee socks can make even the squarest outfit feel slightly saucy. After all was said and done, I really liked the mix of warm and cool colors at work. The best part? As of today, gorgeous spring weather is both upon us and on the horizon.

What a great idea you had to keep a spring theme but with warmth:) I love the color of that sweater!

Love this outfit and color combo. It's been in the nineties here and this outfit makes me wish we actually had cool springtime weather.

Ooh, Katy, I love this! I've been such a sucker for cropped sweaters over dresses this season, so I'm just loving this combination. And the tall socks add just the right amount of sass. :)
