ATTAINABLE: Willow & Clay Cloudy Day Sweater
Can you believe that I'm actually dreaming of rainy days? It just seems like such a nice alternative to all the bleak skies and snowy nights that we've been plagued with all winter long. And rain is so cozy -- when I'm curled up inside by a fireplace, of course. This sweet little Willow & Clay sweater reminds me of those spring afternoons spent wandering outside with an umbrella or cozy with a blanket and a book indoors.
I can never resist a contemporary line with lots of pretty feminine details. Enter: LIV Los Angeles, a California-based brand featuring lots of color, easy shapes, and luxurious-but-not-stuffy fabrics. This USA-made line is filled with pieces that are pretty and flirty -- everything that's perfect for spring.
This is such a pretty, easy piece for spring. I love the flippy skirt and simple top. I kind of love it paired with chunky biker booties, but I think that a pair of delicate flat metallic sandals would be a little more my speed, especially if I added a layered necklace or pair of dangling chandelier earrings to glam it up a bit for evening.
I'm all about a surprise in the back of a look, and the deep (DEEP -- like, to the waist) V in the back of this pretty little frock is a major one. With a chunky leather belt and booties for a fun daytime outfit or a bright, slim patent leather one and a pair of pumps for a ladylike evening look, this could just be the perfect little white dress to round out my spring wardrobe.
Are rompers over? Perhaps. But I love this pretty one. The lace trim on the hem is really pretty and delicate, and I love the touches of sheer that make it seem dressy. I kind of love it styled with a denim shirt tied around the waist (although I think that a shirt tied AT the waist would be adorable, too.
What I love about this dress is its true and utter simplicity. The shape is so basic, but the blocking between the purple shirttail skirt and the patterned top lends a little bit of differentiation to the pretty garment, and the embroidered leaves are absolutely stunning.
