NYC in Pictures: Part 3 (Style File)

Hat: Vintage (chris's)
Belt: J.Crew (gift)
Scarf: Vintage thrift ($5-ish)
Bag: Vintage D&B ($10)
Necklace: Black Sparrow (gift)
Tights: TjMaxx ($4)
Shoes: Matiko sale ($40)
Sweater: LOFT (swapped)
There have been glimpses of my IFB outfit in my last couple of posts, but I thought I would do a real style file today. To tell the truth, I had a completely different outfit planned, but the morning of I decided on this and over-all, I'm happy with it. This ModCloth dress has been sitting in the back of my closet for a few months now, I had forgotten that it works best with tights (you can see how I previously styled it here), I packed it up and brought it along! To off-set the bright white, I mixed in a lot of neutrals and dark green. My goal was to look spring-y but seasonally appropriate. I think I got it right.
And yes, it was coooold and windy!!!

Beautiful! I love that dress & bracelet in particular.. though at the moment I'm too broke for ModCloth (or anything really besides thrift haha). Otherwise I'd be all over it. PS I can see ya goosebumps! What a trooper. :)

You're a vision in white! I love very detail about this outfit. You are so stunning girl. I think you got the springy but seasonally appropiate right on par. Love that necklace too! xo

This is perfect! The white is definitely Springy but with the dark green accessories you've definitely made it appropriate for February. & I love your bag!

YIKES cold! I really hope there's a coat off-camera! I always make my intrepid photographer hold mine.

This is a gorgeous winter-to-spring transitional look, the white lace with that sage green is stunning and is definitely just the right hint of spring. If only the weather would catch up already!

I'm OBSESSED with that dress! White lace dresses are a weakness of mine. You styled it so perfectly too but weren't you freezing?!
