Looking Back, Looking Forward

This has been the best winter ever!  There’ve hardly been extremely cold days and the spring weather looks like it’s here.  The temperature is going to be in the 60s all week in St. Louis!

My houndstooth clothing hasn’t gotten a lot of play because I usually associate houndstooth with winter and it hasn’t felt like winter.  But, who says houndstooth prints are only for the winter?

Today’s Looking Back, Looking Forward brings a spring update to my favorite houndstooth print dress, a retro Max and Cleo dress that I purchased in a BCBG Factory Store.

    Thanks y'all!

    @Losing and Eating Healthy: This is a Michael Kors watch. I actually found it in a TJ Maxx store for $149 (compare at $250).
