It's Hot and It's Cold

I think we all romanticize spring. Well, maybe only I do. It's so magical with the happy daffodils and colorful tulips blooming. The weather is warming up and everything is turning green again. Life is renewed! And then it snows and sleets. And then it's 65 degrees and the sky is blue! Oh wait, wind gusts are 30 miles an hour and it's raining again. By the time it's consistently warm it will be mid-June and temps will have skipped right through the gorgeous 60s and 70s and gone straight to high 80s. I swear, I just can't keep it all straight. So I won't be putting away my tights any time soon!

  1. We are having the same mess of a spring here. It is freezing today! I am so ready for summer! Purple is such a great color for you and I love your handbag! Susan

  2. Such a pretty color of purple. I love that it's not the pastel, barely-there purple. It's royal and regal. I'm loving that skirt, too!

  3. This is a really cute outfit. I hear you about spring weather--you need to have so many options in your closet with the crazy weather.

  6. I feel ya…one day it's 80 and the next it's 50 and windy with rain every couple of hours. The weather needs to get its act together! I love the purple and stripes!

  8. Ohhh I couldn't agree with your title more. Same here, that Katie Perry song totally suits our weather. Love you in purple. That scarf matches the cardigan to a T!

  11. This Wisconsin weather has been ridiculous, hasn't it? Go away, snow!! But this outfit is perfect.

  12. Spring really is so weird. It gets a lot warmer here earlier BUT spring also means tornado season so we spend a lot of nights at home watching the weather. I actually much prefer summer to spring! Anyway, I love that you incorporated a little bit of purple into your black and white ensemble!

  13. I've been having such a hard time figuring out what to wear with the weather we're getting here! It's a strange mix of cold/hot and rainy/dry. I love the deep purple colour of this cardigan!

  15. Cute layered look! The stripes with the patterned scarf are fun pairing of patterns.

    Agreed.....Spring is so hard to dress for. I love the flowers and warmer weather, but it's so inconsistent

  17. The weather is soo weird. Seriously. I walked into a building today and was freezing cold and then they had the AC on and it was even colder. Then I walked outside and was hot!

  19. You're so right! The weather has been so all over the place. Today in NJ, it was sunny one minute, then looked like a hurricane was moving in, and THEN back to sunny! I don't remember Spring being this crazy years ago. You look gorgeous in purple! Pretty scarf! I love scarves in the Spring.

  20. Yep, I feel the same way. Just when I think the warmth may be here to stay, it rains and gets cold again. Not time to put the tights away just yet! I like the deep purple cardigan with your striped shirt!

  21. Oh I like your scarf and cardigan together! And it's a nice bit of print mixing with your skirt :)

    I find we have such mild spring times here, it's autumn where we get the crazy weather. it went from summer temps to almost singlet digits suddenly and randomly, was really cold for a moment! Now it's back to just being cooler than summer, that I can handle. wasn't ready for a sudden blast of winter just yet, haha!

  22. Spring is the most bipolar season! Monday I was in boots and a sweater, tuesday I didn't need a coat, today went back and forth.... It really did have me humming that song, lol!

  23. LOL! I can sure relate! It was in the 70's one day last week. We've had temps in the 20's this week (as lows) and a spot of sleet/snow. Loving the purple! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

    It's similar in Southern California where spring is actually colder than winter so I can't put my sweaters away yet either. Loving the purple color on you!

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you Thursday.

  26. The purple and stripes were meant to be paired together! I feel like I haven't worn my striped skirt with purple yet. How has that happened?!

  27. Oh my gosh, isn't that the truth? This time of year in the Midwest is utterly insane. One day, you're in tights, and the next day, you're in shorts and sweating. Luckily, I think we've turned the corner and it's all good from here, haha :)
