I just realized that I have been in Shanghai for over one and a half years now. The second winter during our stay has past, even though I can't actually feel spring coming anytime soon. The weather in Shanghai is pretty cold for March and I am tired of wearing winter outerwear as I have to wear my puffer coats most of the time. I'm so ready for warm and colorful spring outfits, even though I'm not sure if or when spring is coming. Shanghai is quite well known for its short spring and autumn, which is sad since they are my favorite seasons!
My husband and I went shopping last weekend for my spring collection. He brought this hooded sports dress to my attention when we were shopping in the Lily store. After I tried it on, I felt it's definitely this year's must have for my wardrobe. I like the combination of sports and leisure style, as well as the front pattern embodied with a Chinese element. This dress is very casual and perfect for weekends and lazy days. I wore this dress with my Stuart Weitzman oven the knee boots. It also goes with sneakers and casual booties. For layers, it can pair with a peacoat and light jackets, since the grey color is very easy to match.
