Keeping it casual and mismatched for a lovely little spring afternoon in the city. To be honest, I didn’t really mean to combine this varsity-esque tweed jacket with the dress…it just so happened to be the only thing I had laying around when temps started to drop the other day (typical)! Hey why not embrace spontaneity where you can — even if it’s only with the clothes you wear when stepping out for a coffee break.

    Great look! I’m always trying to find fun new ways to wear flats since I spend my life hiking up & down hills. Love these adorable little cap-toed ballet flats, such a gret find!

    Such a great outfit. Love how you toned down the cuteness of the dress and flats by adding that jacket!

    I like it together, nice combination :) I’m really getting sick of the dropping temps in the UK too. It needs to be summer now!
