I’m pretty much over winter these days. But…when I saw the snow falling, I basically had no choice but to roll out there and take some blog photos. I ended up loving these photos, so I think it was totally worthwhile. However, now that I’ve captured the photos, Spring is welcome to come immediately to Chicago.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Lately, I’ve been all about florals in winter. I think florals can bring a lot of color and joy to winter days. The top featured here is quite thin, so I wore it with another top underneath and a cardigan. I like to think through what I generally consider more of my “summer and spring” clothes and basically just layer them up for winter wear. With layers, you can get a lot more usage out of your clothes, so pull out some of your summer clothing bins and look through them!

Yes, break all those old school rules! I love wearing floral and bright colors all year round! Why should sunshine only be for the spring and summer, right?!? 😉
lovely outfit, really suits you. Not sure I could do bare feet and heels in snow though! Think I would fall over
Lovely! And yes please, Chicago, bring back Spring!
Oh brrrrrr that looks cold. Hard to believe it will hit 100F in some cities in Australia today! Yes yes yes at florals in winter!
great pictures! 😀
I love those shoes and that scarf with your colors. Really pulls it all together!
Way to put some life into this brutal winter nice look!
I love the mix of colors and patterns!

Great shots, love florals and bright colors.
I love these photos – they look a little bit dreamy and whole lot of fun. Plus the colours in your top/scarf/cardigan are beautiful. I live in lightweight wool and cashmere sweaters, wearing them approximately eight months of the year (yes, even in Australia – I refuse to be cold!). I always gravitate towards similar styles so for me, it’s almost always a good time to invest in more.
Beautiful photos! And the outfit is just perfect for snow, so cheerful 🙂
loving the top. nice colors.
Always with amazing color combinations!!! Love the photos! xxx

Loving the colors in the snowy weather!! xx

Wow, it looks really wintery there!! Haven’t had any of that yet, but when we do, I think I’ll be wearing my warm and comfy, furry inside, Rieker boots, otherwise I won’t stand a chance to the cold.
Love your outfit though, makes me think of spring !!
I love your outfit especially the scarf.
Girl you rock that you braved the cold weather. But truth be told, the snow gives the pics a magical feel!

I couldn’t agree more these photos turned out so great! Plus nothing better than heels in snow;). I am sorry though spring can’t come yet, we are coming out there in March and I want to play in the snow!
Still more snow in March?! I can’t even think about it!! lol

I love your pop of Spring in an otherwise dreary winter! I have to admit I’m jealous of the snow though. Freezing temps with no pretty snow to look at just seems pointless. But I’m with you, hurry up, Spring!
