Striped Shirtdress

Helloooo, hello! Happy belated Holi to those that celebrated and happy Easter in advance to those celebrating! It seems to be a time for celebrations all around and even though I myself have a somewhat quiet weekend planned, sunshine (60 degrees and sunny in this weekend's forecast..woot!) and a promise of cupcakes are keeping this girl in the party mood. That's all it takes, you ask? That and a good Spring dress, yes. Easter brunch bound or not, a pretty dress is always on my weekend radar and this classic striped shirt-dress hits the spot just right. I'm itching for summer when it'll be my go-to for picnics and patio parties alike, but it's still too cold for layer-less wear, so I braced myself in tights and the warmest beanie I own (hand knit with thick wool and a giant pom.. need I say more? Take 10% off at Anja's etsy store with 'missminus', valid until April 7th!).  I originally intended to wear the dress on it's own, but two minutes into the shoot, my bare arms were threatening to fall off :|, so I quickly put on my white leather jacket. I look at this outfit now and think that it's an unlikely mix of things, but if you ask me, when you're a girl with confidence, anything goes, no? Look at me.. dishing words of wisdom on a Friday.. #keepcalmandturnup

Thank you for reading and have a fabulous weekend!
