Elle Blouse (not available online but love anything from this brand!) | Striped Dress, old | Strappy Wedges, old | Steve Madden clutch, Nordstrom Rack | Jewels, old

Anyone else ready for spring?!  Tomorrow is the beginning of March and all I still see or hear is snow and more cold weather!  One of my recent Sunday Spotlight posts was all about nautical stripes, and that inspired today's post, also a preview of warm weather wear that is slowly making its way back to my closet!

One of the things I look for in my pieces is versatility!  I love finding different ways to wear the same item, and this striped dress is one of those pieces that continually gets a different look.  It's fairly easy to turn a dress into a skirt, which is what I did here!  I loved pairing the stripes with this cityscapes print and it was easy to hide the hem of the blouse with a wide belt.  I'm in love with this whimsical print, a Kohls find from a few months ago.  I may be slightly obsessed with hot air balloons, especially the ones from the spring Kate Spade collection.  Another of my favorite prints to pair with stripes is florals and I'm sure that's going to be popular this spring.  For the winter (since it seems to be never ending), I've paired many dresses with comfy sweaters, including this one!

After seeing so many pretty Nordstrom Rack finds, I decided to do a thorough search of my local store.  There were many things I wanted to get, but I decided on this clutch because of the size and pretty blueish-gray color!  I'm still on the hunt for a few more colorful clutches for the many work events that are coming up this spring.
