Dress (worn as a top):  SheInside
Skirt:  J.Crew Factory
Sunglasses:  Aldo
Bracelets:  Jacob
Purse:  Banana Republic {old}
Shoes:  Arturo Chiang Beatrixx

I loved the look of this SheInside dress online, however when it arrived, it was WAY to short.  Even my most daring self could not pull off such a short dress (keep in mind I am nearly 6’ tall).  Instead, it has been re-purposed as a top.  The quality is pretty decent for the price (I find SheInside can be hit-or-miss with regards to quality).

Sleeveless blouse: Banana Republic draped wrap top

Sunglasses:  Aldo Agrayssa  {Cdn link} These are a much cheaper option compared to the Ray-Bans I am seeing everywhere – similar ASOS version
Bracelets:  Banana Republic knot bracelet; Gorjana leather wrap
Clutch:  Banana Republic {old – bought in 2011-ish}
Shoes:  Arturo Chaing Beatrixx Loafers  {similar here}

I have been gravitating to more casual looks recently.  I expect, in part, this is to the feeling of being unconstrained by the spring weather.  For me, winter evoked images of uninspiring dark clothing, and tightly bundled up layers, while spring has been the opposite – airy, relaxed looks, with considerably more color.
