5 WHITE PIECES FOR SPRING

I talked about jeans and shoes you need this Spring, but what you might not know about me is my favorite color (or non-color) to wear is white. I typically wear white all year round, but there are a few new styles I will be adding to my wardrobe this season.

5 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT SPRING

Oh Spring, I love you.

There is a time every year when the trees start to bloom, everyone comes out of hibernation, and yards become perfectly manicured and everything just feels a little lighter. Here are 5 favorite things I love about Spring:

THE DAYS GET LONGER.  It is funny when daylight savings happens and we are all wishing for that extra hour of sleep, but a few weeks later when the sun is still up around 7:30, I look out the window and smile.

ADDING WHITE.  White is my favorite (non) color to wear. Honestly, I wear it throughout every season, but Spring is the perfect time to brighten up my wardrobe. I normally push the blacks to the back of my closet and find new white pieces to add.  I just picked up this top (under $10) and this dress is on the top of my wish list.  See more of my favorite white picks:

AL FRESCO DINNER PARTIES.  Ever since moving into our new house, I have been wanting to host a casual dinner party and outdoor movie night. See some of my inspiration for the party on my Pinterest page.

EXERCISE OUTSIDE. Maybe its the anticipation of bikini season, but when the weather shifts I get a burst of energy to get in shape.  It is so hard when it’s 70 degrees and sunny to not want to get outside and get active.  This year my goal is to run a 10k. My friend Michelle (also my coach) is going to help me train. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.  First up, 3 miles.  Do you have any exercise goals this season?

5.  AN UNSPOKEN HAPPINESS. It’s actually a fact.  Read this article to find out why.

STYLE DETAILS: FLORALS

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. 

I know it is not the most earth shattering trend, but after a long winter I am definitely craving lots floral print. Thanks to Michele, I started browsing the Shopbop Sale and pretty much want to buy everything (thanks to tax day, that probably shouldn’t happen) .

Does anyone else feel the urge to clean out their closet of all the old and fill with new, pretty things? I know it is not realistic but a girl can dream right? Maybe a few floral pieces to freshen up my Spring wardrobe is just what I need.

Here are a few of my favorite florals from the Friends and Family Sale Event (it ends tomorrow at midnight, so just be impulsive like me).  Now you can just click directly on the images above to shop! I think Miranda Priestly would say… revolutionary, but maybe I am just naive. Happy Hump (Shopping) Day!

We are starting to get settled into our cozy house and it is beginning to feel like home around here. This weekend was spent dog sitting for the cutest little pup (#missmolls and #miss zoey were not quite sure how they felt about another friend) and spent lots of time outside in the sun.  I am seriously loving this Dallas weather. There is something about the sunshine that just puts me in a good mood. I also did a little shopping this weekend and have officially found my favorite white t-shirt. I feel like I am a bit of a snob when it comes to white tee’s and this Vince one is the perfect one for me.

How was your weekend?

It's Feeling Like Spring

The trees are blooming, the grass is turning green, and I can finally feel the warm air on my skin.  Spring is my favorite season of the year and since Daylight Savings on Saturday I have been one happy girl.  Everyday I drive by a row of my favorite stores on the way to the gym (it’s a curse and a blessing at the same time) Anthro has some of the cutest dresses right now that are right on trend for Spring. And I think I need this yellow number– it would be perfect for Easter in a couple of weeks. I typically stick to basics and use accessories to spice up an outfit but I am loving these floral patterns for Spring.
