Well my friends- daylight savings time is here. I had a hard time getting up yesterday morning, but man was it worth it. Delaware has not seen weather this beautiful in months! Saturday was warm, sunny, and hovered around the 60's (hallelujah!) The park is back to being mobbed on Saturday afternoons (I have found some new off-the-beaten paths to avoid the droves) and the spring dresses are coming out in full swing! I guess I am really loving these two colors lately! (mint/turquoise and pink) I feel like every few days I am creating another outfit around the pairing, and it's been fun using different pieces to create the same theme of colors. Somehow it almost always involved a pop of polka dots too, which I just can not get enough of!
This weekend was an absolute blast. We had our friends Mark and Karin stay with us for the weekend and our time was filled with good food, movies, shopping, drinks and hilarious conversation. After my long walk on Saturday morning in the back meadows of Glascow Park; Karin and I ventured to the mall which was seriously PACKED. I found a few new things at Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 and managed to get most things on Sale so luckily it wasn't too hard on my wallet. Unfortunately, H&M had a line that was practically wrapping around the store so Karin and I put down the few items we had found but weren't completely in love with and moved on, haha! So, my purchases from Forever 21 were this dress and pair of tights. Ombre pink tights?! Yes, please!! I have been looking for a pair of ombre tights and when I found these I just could not put them down. I found the cutest pale yellow cardigan that would have gone fabulously with the dress and tights but reason returned, telling me "you can wear these with something else, put it down" so I did- and I think that the royal blue is a really fun and funky mix up from my standard pastel yellow, pink, and green/blue.
I am really loving this dress. The color is fun, the cut is flattering, and the style is so versatile (and polka dots, hello!) To mix it up I also paired along with a royal blue sparkly cardigan and flamingo printed scarf I found at Target. I think I would also mix it up with a bright yellow cardigan and some multicolored beads.
Funny face :D

I was so lucky to be able to spend so much time with friends this weekend! I even got a chance to model for a friend yesterday for her photography project, hopefully I will have a few pictures to post sometime in the future when she has finished working with them. She is planning to use a few to create gum bichromate photographs, which is a seriously cool alternative photography process, so exciting!

Hope you are all adjusting to Daylight Savings Time and having a wonderful day!
