Daily Threads: Right to Bare Arms


{similar blouse, similar trousers, UO Suede Pump}

Ah, the right to bare arms. A dangerous permit as we come out of winter and into spring. As I rifled through these photos I realized a.) I'm super white and b.) my arms need to hit the gym (my stomach and butt should probably follow along as well). 

Alas, I think I'll just take Maeby for a walk. If I carry her during the walk, I'm pretty sure that would work the three areas mentioned above, I love multitasking.

i love the polka-dots and those wide-leg pants are awesome!!

hooray for multitasking! and just think, by going for a walk outside, you can work on your tan too. :)

cute and little

Ah, I'm so jealous of you bloggers who live in warmer climates! I'm so sick of wearing 6 layers and slipping on ice-covered sidewalks every day lol

Jenna said...

Hahaha. My philosophy exactly!

Nata said...

Such a cute top! It's definitely not warm enough for bare arms in NJ but it's up to 53 today & I feel like frolicking with Fifi... she's too heavy to carry, lol.
Enjoy your awesome weather!

Abbe said...

Such a cute, early spring outfit!! I am totally dreading the bare arms, bare legs, etc. that is quickly becoming a reality!

Um... jealous! I am like 4 months (at least) from bare arms. And you have solidified my need for those UO pumps, except I'll probably go with the yellow.

Liz said...

Despite the raising temps here, I'm still in full on layer mode. Although it's a good thing I did wear layers cause half of them are now on the back of chair. Whew, it's out today.

Jen said...

Currently here it is 70 degrees and I couldn't be happier about it...but I know what you mean about wearing spring/summer clothing and needing a tan, a body tone up, etc. I think you look great Linley!

Secondly, when I look at the photo, I really feel the warmth:)

I've been reading your blog for a bit and this is my first comment. This outfit is super cute, and the weather is awesome today. But mostly... I love that your dog's name is Maeby. How could you pick between all the characters??
