OOTD: Shameless Inspiration

Thank you everyone for your wonderful thoughts and responses on my last post.  The comments section of that post is like a non-sponsored post promoting the virtues of discourse :-D

On March 20, the official first day of Spring, my Google Feedly reader blew up with "YAY SPRING" posts.  I couldn't help but get into the spirit myself, but it has been a bit too cold in D.C. lately to embrace spring florals fully.

That's where personal style blog inspiration comes in!  The other week, one of my favorite reads, District of Chic, featured a great early-Spring floral look:

I don't know why I hadn't thought about wearing florals with black before.  It seems obvious now, but something about florals always seemed to demand brighter colors or pale neutrals.

Anyway, I copied this look for work:

In this Outfit:

Eva Franco Bloomtown Violet Dress (8) (similar, similar, similar)
Urban Outfitters Silence + Noise Blazer (L) (similar)
Necklace from Eastern Market in DC
Jessica Simpson Minna Wedge (9.5) (don't recommend --- the patent leather is poor quality and damages easily.  Such a great shoe in terms of shape/comfort though, so this is a shame.  I have them in gray leather and that one seems to be holding up better.)
Kate Spade Bow Bangle (almost exactly the same but $18)
Kate Spade Gold Square Studs (similar for $10, similar for $5)

(This is what happens when you forget to take an outfit photo until midnight after your weekly poker game.)
