wearing: winter in the spring

As much as I love getting some wear out of my winter-clearance items, I'm over it. I'm ready for bright colors, flats/sandals, and not worrying about carrying a coat around.

...but here we are... A week into Spring and I'm wearing a scarf and coat and still freezing. I decided to at least lighten it up a bit yesterday.

I'm so excited I finally found a chambray shirt that fits pretty good! It's darker than most, but I feel like it'll be a good contrast with hot pinks and yellows that I wear all the time in the Spring. 
-shirt from Old Navy
-jeans from F21
-flats from Charlotte Russe
-scarf from the streets of NYC

I've been going to work with wet hair lately [and just trying to hide my roots and nappy hair that I decided to show off here, I guess] so the easiest thing is an "LC-braid" that goes all the way down. Then I just double rolled the braided pony underneath and bobby pinned it up.
My fabulous blue liner is from Chella via Ipsy. I love the color, but it definitely doesn't go on easily/well.

How do we feel about the half-tucked shirts? Not going to lie... It took me several attempts to make the "untucked" look, look alright. People on Pinterest make it look so good and easy.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to waste the only hour of "extra time" I have by playing 2048 or trying to decide what to buy from this website.
