What I'm Wearing Now: March

Early Spring Style // Bubby and Bean
1. Orange Kimono (got at F21 but can't find online; this one is similar and possibly even cuter)  //  2. Coco Sunglasses, Free People  //  3. Gold Twisted Hoop Earrings, F21  //  4. Jersey Tee, H&M  //  5. Flared Jeans (thrifted; in love with this similar pair at Madewell, which happens to be on sale!)  //  6. High Rise Frayed Shorts, Target  //  7. Black Leggings, Target  //  8. Geometric Pull-On Shorts, J.Crew Factory  //  9. Classic Sheffield Watch, Daniel Wellington  //  10. Stripe T-Shirt Dress, Target  // 11. Lily Tote Diaper Bag, Newlie  //  12. Rene Sandal, Trask  // 13. Hi Top Back Zip Boot, Minnetonka (pretty sure I've now officially worn these more than the rest of the shoes I've ever owned combined)

And finally, after many months, a  'What I'm Wearing Now' post that features (mostly) pieces that weren't a part of my maternity and/or immediate post-baby wardrobe! It's a springtime miracle! I still have a lot of weight to lose (why didn't anyone tell me finding time to work out is literally impossible when you have a baby and toddler without, like, a live-in nanny?), but it is slowly coming off which means that (aside from my unpleasantly large nursing boobs) I'm able to fit back in some of my favorite articles of clothing - and buy a few new pieces I love too.

This month has been interesting because we spent the first quarter of it in 85+ degree weather in Arizona, and the rest here in the Chicagoland, where, while it's been much warmer than usual, is still on the tail end of winter. So as you can see from the collage above, there is bit of a mix of varying seasonal attire. And although I won't be able to wear many of these pieces again until probably late May, it was kind of a nice sartorial preview of what is to come for my favorite time of the year for fashion. Give me all flowy tops, short dresses, cut-offs, and sunglasses, man. Speaking of which, this top and this top (not shown above), this dress (#10), these shorts (#6), and these sunnies (#2) were all new purchases this month. It's all sorts of exciting to finally get to shop again - it's probably been a year since I've been shopping for more than leggings and oversized tees.

What have you been wearing this month? Northern hemisphere friends, are you in warm weather clothes yet?



  1. Totally busting out some of the warmer weather clothes in Baltimore these days. It's been two weeks since I wore my winter coat, so that makes me happy...haha. Not quite shorts weather though, but getting there! :)

  2. Oooooh I really like this month's! Those jeans are so cute. I need to get me some bell bottoms.

  3. I love your style. I want everything here. Haha

  4. LOVE! These are the cutest basic picks! Great selection! ♥

    Happy New Week!

  5. That dress looks so comfortable! I can't wait for the weather to warm up here!

  6. I'm jealous that you got to be in shorts already! I might copy you and pick up the ones from the J Crew outlet, too. :-)

    I've been defaulting to black and gray a lot because I've been so busy, but even I'm ready for spring colors now.

  7. Yay for warm weather clothes! We just spent two weeks in Europe, where the temperatures were the usual for this time of year, but came home to beautiful, unseasonably warm spring weather and I can't wait to bust out my short sleeved tops and skirts with bare legs!
