For the second month in a row, I'm sharing my What I'm Wearing Now post for the month after the month has already ended. But that's okay, because it's MAY, and that means everything just feels bright and happy (because it's finally freaking spring), and my resulting good mood means I'm going to cut myself a little slack.

That said, April in Chicagoland did not feel like spring, and this was reflected in my wardrobe choices. We did go to Northern California the first week of the month, where it was in the 60s and felt blissful, so I was able to ditch the winter coat and wear a denim jacket. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our annual trip to Arizona due to real life inconveniences like work and school and activities and a hefty dose of procrastination in getting flights, so my April dreams of cut-offs and short gauzy floral dresses was crushed. I did pick up this pretty new very springy dress you see above (which I had to return because it didn't fit but then went and bought the right size and fell in love), so I'm grateful for that.

Thankfully, I can almost guarantee May's edition of WIWN is going to be gloriously full of summer-tinged pieces. Stay tuned!

  1. I genuinely can't complain about our April weather, which mostly has been lovely - aside from high winds resulting in blowing dust from a winter of puttig anti-slip gravel on the roads. That part has been pretty gross. But I've been able to get out my flats and white blouses, which has been lovely. And later this week, with the highs getting to almost summery temperatures, it will be time for silk tanktops and kimonos!

  2. That dress! It was cold in April here too, so I'm really excited for spring clothes this month!
