The Pretty Life Girls: Brace yourself. It's another weather-woes post.

Brace yourself. It's another weather-woes post.

I'm sorry. I can't help it. It's just so snowy and it's going to be April this week!

You see, the problem is that we are still wearing boots, and puffy coats, and scarves, and really thick socks, and gloves around here. Want to know why? Well, it's because it's still freaking freezing, that's why. And it's supposed to snow here again today.

These are trying times to be a fashion blogger in Utah, I tell you. All I do is lay in bed and dream of wedge sandals, and cropped skinnies, and skirts without wool tights under them. However, I'm trying not to let the freezing weather hinder my spring-trends dreams. One of which is tribal prints, which I love. And since they incorporate lots of neutral colors with fun bright ones, they still work with some of my dreary winter stuff so I can be springy and wintery all at once. It's just one big hodgepodge of dressing for the wacko Utah seasons around here. Roll with it.

Needing a little spring to mix in with your winter leftover's until the sun finally decides to come and stay? Here are some super cute little tribal print treasures I found for $25 or under:

Shop: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

And here is my winter/spring/why-will-the-snow-not-stop-falling/I-am-so-sick-of-layers/where-is-the-sunshine outfit for today, with my little tribal print skirt I made out of a dress from the sale rack at Kohls:

Jacket: ROSS 7.99, Top: F21 12.99, Skirt: Kohls 4.99,
Leggings: ROSS 4.99, Boots: F21 21.99

Now, if you are reading this from somewhere in the Southern United States, or in a place that is currently warmer than 30 degrees, or anywhere where there are birds chirping and green grass and blue skies, I urge you, step away from the computer, get outside, take your shoes off and frolic.

 Do it for me. Your frozen friend.

  1. Love your vibrant outfit! Sending you some sun and warm weather all the way from Malta :) xo

  2. I think that outfit is adorable!! I love the tribal look and reminded me of a skirt I bought at a thrift shop last summer and put away because it was too 'summer-y' so...maybe I can rock the tights!! :)
    Cute look today as always!

  3. No time for me to comment, I must go frolic for you.
    I'll send some sunshine and birds to you asap, pinky promise.

  7. That's a great refashion! If I tried to make a dress into a skirt I would end up with nothing to wear!

  12. Super cute Outfit. You always find great things. It was to hot to play outside today but now that the sun is going down. I can take my dog outside and play with her.

  13. Manhattan is also freezing, and it's put me into a clothing funk. It's no fun having to wear winter clothes anymore. As much as I love them, all those fashion bloggers in the South, CA, and AZ are making me sick with their warm weather and sunshine. If only...
