While we all know that florals for spring aren't exactly groundbreaking, what about florals before spring? The weather has been a little all over the place here in Austin (and maybe everywhere?) so I threw the rules out of the window with some fun color play and pattern mixing.

When I first came across this dress, I knew it would be perfect for remixing, but I hadn't even thought to layer a top under it until recently! I've been sort of treating this black and white striped tissue turtleneck from J.Crew (last seen here and here) like I did my pink Anthropologie off-the-shoulder blouse (seen here, here, and here) in the summer by trying to pair it with just about everything I own, just to see if I can. Every time the temperatures drop, I start searching for dresses to be able to recreate this winter uniform from a couple years back. If I could just get like 10 dresses in this exact shape, I would only wear this outfit equation (top under dress) for the rest of the winter.

Have you surprised yourself in your closet lately? What item can you not stop wearing?
