Tie One On

 Nope, not talking about drinking! I'm talking about my current obsession with tying flannel tops around the waist.
It's pretty much impossible to predict whether it will be warm enough to get away without the extra layer, so I have decided that this is my new style and I'm sticking to it. And it has worked without fail so far!

 I wore this look to a blogger meet-up yesterday (hosted by the beautiful Natalie from Interlaced Media) and it was so gorgeous out I actually didn't need the extra layer -- which was all the better because this look worked much better with the top around my waist :)

I was having on of those mornings where everything was just too blah and boring, but I threw on my trusty flannel and instantly it felt like a complete "look". I love tricks like this. It also would have worked with a chambray top or denim jacket, but I liked the color this red top brought into the mix.

I'm also really loving that I can wear boots with pretty much everything right now. I'm able to feed my love of all things mini (skirts, shorts, rompers, dresses...) paired with boots. We only have a short window before we need to pull out the tights and I plan on I am taking full advantage until the very last second.

    1. They really add so much to a look, don't they? I actually can't stand booties on my feet in the summer, but wish I could because they look so stinken' cute! Love this time of the year where I can finally be comfortable in them.

  6. Great look Alison. Your right about the shirt; it really does add an extra layer making the look really pop. I hope you get a few more weeks of bare legs.. I'm hanging to ditch the tights at the moment!

    1. I'm so jealous that you are just getting into summer now! I would really love to chase summers from here to Australia every year. Wouldn't that be the best?
