First off, I have to say… I am beyond in love with this LulaRoe aztec print Amelia dress. This was one of my “unicorns” (you know, meaning that I searched and searched for it because it was so hard to find) and when I found it, it’s like I heard a chorus of celebratory cheers! And it has not disappointed… it’s beautiful! I get compliments on it EVERY time I wear it. I also love that at this stage of my pregnancy people will say, “Oh, that’s such an adorable maternity dress!” and I love that I can say, “It’s not even a maternity dress! WOOHOO!” The fit of the Amelia is just one of those fits that is flattering on almost any body type – pregnant or not. Plus, I mean… POCKETS. (Check out posts where I’ve worn other styles of LulaRoe Amelia dressess here, here, and here.)

Back to the subject at hand – THE WEATHER. Look, I don’t like to be one of those people who only talks about the weather… but let’s be serious for a second. THIS WEATHER IS OUT OF CONTROL. With this exception of a little bit of chill and cool air this past weekend, it’s been in the 60s and 70s here in North Carolina for most of December! And it’s supposed to be in the 70s on Christmas day this year! WHAT?! LulaRoe Aztec Amelia dress, Duo boots, Lily Jade bag, Nickel and Suede earrings, Fall, Maternity, Fashion (2)

I mean, I’m not complaining, but it certainly makes getting dressed every day a little bit of a guessing game. Do I need a jacket? Will this be warm enough? Do I bring a sweater? Why is it so hot all of a sudden? Do I wear shorts? Is it time to go to the pool or something?!

It’s when weather like this (that’s so bizarre and all over the charts) hits that I love dresses and boots because they’re easy to “warm up” or “cool down” – if that makes sense. I can throw on a jacket, sweater, or blazer… or I can wear as-is and be totally comfortable.

It’s even been nice enough to eat outside! I’m a fan. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a good, solid snowfall… but this unseasonably warm weather is certainly welcome to stick around for just a LITTLE while longer. 🙂

Today IS the first day of WINTER after all…

What about you? What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Normal or unseasonably warm or cool? What do you like to wear when the weather is crazy unpredictable?
