My warm weather weekend wear is back in action! Is there anything better than finding a dress you can just throw on to run around town? This dress is definitely one of those…and I love that you can still feel put together without a lot of effort. Let’s face it: my effort has gone down on the weekends. If it isn’t easy breezy, I don’t want to mess around with it on my days off.

Perhaps when summer rolls around and I have a week or two off things will change. I have to admit, I’m looking forward to our upcoming 4 day weekend. Even though it will most likely be busy with Easter festivities, I’m hoping for at least a little bit of relaxation. Maybe I can get that pedicure I’ve been thinking about for a few weeks now.

So…last week I bid farewell to sweater weather here in Florida. I am completely elated to welcome one of my favorite times of the year! Spring in Florida is warm, but it is also the season before the humidity fully kicks in. Our temperatures will be in the high 70s/low 80s, and I will be in heaven.

This time of the year is seriously one of my favorites when it comes to my wardrobe. I am a huge fan of pairing shorts or a skirt as bottoms, along with a 3/4 or long sleeve top. It’s the best of both worlds, in my opinion! I tend to look for breezy, light tops when it comes to my sleeves, as utilizing winter wear can still be a bit stuffier of an option. I picked up this grey and white striped tee at Marshalls a while back (has it been a year? It’s possible), and boy oh boy has it had a generous amount of wear. It’s a staple in my wardrobe, and I wish I had a closet full of them. Leave it to Marshalls to always serve me well when it comes to the basics – I am never at a loss for awesome casual tops to add to my collection.

I am having a hard time processing the fact that today is April 1. Of 2014. How in the world has time flown by so fast? The year is now a quarter of the way over. Summer will soon be here (I admit I’m looking forward to a few weeks off from work…), I can feel it.

I’m hoping that the very last days of sweater weather have now passed with this first day of April. We had a cold snap over the weekend, which wasn’t a bad thing, but definitely seemed unseasonal for Florida. However, I saw it as possibly the last opportunity to don a sweater during the day. I do always have a cardigan or other light jacket in tow when I go places (Florida tends to blast the air conditioning oh so high in buildings), but wearing one outdoors is not always possible when the temperatures reach 80! Time to break out the flip flops on a permanent basis…

So, my winter “uniform” this year consisted of leggings, dresses, and boots. If I were to describe my spring “uniform,” it would include items similar to my outfit today.

I’m attempting to get as much wear as possible out of my jeans before the Florida humidity kicks in. As soon as that happens, it becomes way too warm and uncomfortable to wear the thick fabric. I transition over to dresses, skirts, and shorts to allow my legs to breathe! But for now – I am enjoying every second of this type of outfit.
