Daylight Savings, the Oscars and a Weather Change

Waking up this morning was so hard! I stayed up later than normal because of the time change -- I wasn't even remotely tired when my clock read 10 p.m. -- and because I was watching the Oscars. I have seen more nominated movies than usual this year, and of course I had to root for actors like Ke Huy Quan (Goonies Never Say Die!) and Brendan Fraser -- who both won, by the way! What a night!

Of course, I also watch for the fashion, and my favorite dress of the night went to model-actress Cara Delevingne in Elie Saab. From the dramatic slit and shoulder to the overall styling, she looked perfect. I even love the pockets. There were a lot of white dresses on the carpet this year, but I like color, and this whole look was sophisticated and sexy yet still looked comfortable enough for a long evening at an awards show.


My dress today isn't nearly as dramatic, but it does have long sleeves. After some amazing weather last week, the temperatures in Atlanta have fallen, and tonight there's even freeze warning. Ugh. Where is spring already?

Outfit Details

Dress: Alice + Olivia Chara Floral-Print Mesh & Vegan Leather Minidress

I think this dress perfectly sums up the in-between season that is March. We're dreaming of a floral-perfect spring but can't move away from the long sleeves just yet.

You can buy the dress on the Alice + Olivia website or at retailers like Saks and Nordstrom.

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Saphie Embellished Suede Sandals

These exact shoes are no longer available but there are a lot of styles from Jimmy Choo featuring the crystal "C" -- like these heels from Saks.
