Feels like Summer

It has been a little unusually warm out (it reached 52 degrees yesterday!), so I figured it was an appropriate time to break out a new flower crown, a bold color, and printed pants, all generally associated with spring (although I prefer them year round), ensuing stares around my school halls by students still decked out in the usual winter attire of my area: Uggs, Solo's, Vintage Havana tees and American Apparel sweatshirts (to generalize it).  And here I was thinking I could just walk in and slip under the radar in a bright yellow sweater, polka dot pants, and a wreath of daisys to top it off. I was mistaken. 

The general reaction was horror (felt of course by my closest friends) as they gathered around me decked out in the dark colors and comfy sweatpants most worn in the week before midterms. Other reactions were on the opposite end of the spectrum: extreme delight over my halo of flowers by students I had never even uttered a word to.  There is no better feeling (as far as compliments and things of that nature go) than being told you did something right by a total stranger. It's that validation that you just can't seem to achieve when your mother tells you your school photo isn't as awful as you think it is and that it's actually the most beautiful photo she has ever seen of you (true story of this past year, and I still don't believe her). 

I mark this experiment as a success. Throughout my short life, I have never been a fan of sticking to seasonal dressing rules. I think white looks better in winter and it is completely appropriate to layer sweaters in the summer if that is what one desires. So why can't we wear color and flowers and prints in January? Ponder that philosophical question as you peruse the following photos that you have now been reading about for three paragraphs as I fail once again to put my rambling addiction to rest.  








sweater: Gap, pants: Blank NYC, ballet flats: Cole Haan, bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, long necklace: vintage, flower crown: Gardenhead

Please ignore the fact that my face is a little awful looking in some of these shots; I have been feeling pretty sick recently and the flu is rapidly attacking the majority of my classmates, so I haven't been looking my best.  Hopefully I will be better soon! 

So, what are your feelings on wearing such a "spring" look in the middle of winter? I would love to hear your thoughts on my above rambling.
