Not Quite Spring

I’m still waiting for that nice spring weather. We got a little glimpse of it in the middle of last week, but then temperatures dropped back down. On Sunday I met up with a friend and I was underdressed (in terms of warmth). It was so windy/chilly that I had to run back to my apartment to grab a hat, scarf, and gloves!

Originally we’d planned to meet on Saturday, but it was so gross and rainy all day that we pushed our plans to Sunday. We had brunch at Mighty Quinn’s and it was quite tasty. Then we walked over to Sephora so that I could buy her birthday present. She’s talked about wanting to find a red lipstick that suits her, so I told her that we’d go to Sephora and find her perfect shade, which I’d then buy for her. Our trip was a success and she picked out a great lipstick from Kat Von D’s line. We browsed in a couple more stores in the area, but soon we started to get tired from our hearty meal earlier.

I just got this floral tee from Aeropostale and it’s so soft. It’s the perfect slouchy weekend tee. I know I’ll be wearing it again soon (hopefully without a coat next time!).

    We were in the midst of spring weather but things have dipped back down again this morning so I think I’m going to have to pull out a warmer jacket. I hate these in-between times of year!

    • Ugh, yes, it’s so hard to dress this time of year! And it’s supposed to snow here tomorrow! :/

    love your laid back Sunday look. I have been under dressing all week….I just can not wear anymore layers. I’m so tired of the sweaters, jackets, hat, scarves, gloves, etc. I WANT WARM WEATHER NOW! lol


    • I know how you feel- I just want to put my winter coat AWAY. Sadly I can’t yet, especially considering it’s supposed to snow tomorrow!

  • Love this look! I’ve been dressing for warm weather and it’s a bit premature on my end…but what can I say?? I’m TOO ready for Spring. Love this look and layering!

    • So ready for spring! I’m trying to walk that fine line between pretending it’s spring and not catching a cold, you know? :)

  • that’s a great floral t-shirt! =)

    glad your friend found a great shade of red! I think every woman should find a great shade of red! =D


    • Thank you! And it’s sooo soft too. I’m happy that I could go lipstick shopping with my friend. I keep telling her that I can’t wait to see her wearing it out and about.

  • Oh I know what you mean! I wore a linen dress and it was just a bit too chilly when I thought it was just enough warmth. I see snow in our forecast on Friday but I hope my weather app is just joking around with me. Love the color pop in your outfit! :)

    • Yeah, I see snow in the forecast for tomorrow too. Boo! Thanks Jane :)

  • Cute tee!! Graphic t-shirts are pretty much what I live in during the spring and summer on the weekends! Hope the weather warms up again!

    • Thank you Sara! Me too! Can it just not snow tomorrow?!

  • SHE Jenmarie

    That shirt is pretty and it really pops since it’s the only light colored piece you have on. :) Glad you enjoyed your weekend!

    • Thank you Jenmarie! I can’t wait to wear this shirt again in warmer conditions :)

  • Jessica

    You look amazing Nnenna. That tee is adorable. I received a pair of black slip on sneakers for Christmas and they have surprisingly have became a go to pair of shoes for me.

    • Awww, thanks so much! I never would have guessed a year ago that I would be such a huge fan of slip-on sneakers. I have though and I wear my black ones so much that I’ve bought a second pair for when I wear out the first pair!

  • Katherine

    Great casual look :) The shirt gives a pop of color :)

  • Same here, I can’t wait for spring to get here already! You look fabulous as always :)

    • Thanks so much Maru :)

  • I know – I keep wanting to dress like it’s warmer out! Sounds like a pretty good sunday though, love a nice brunch.

    Chic on the Cheap

    • I can’t wait for the day when I can wear dresses sans tights!
