Oh Spring, how I love thee...Even with thy stuffy noses, scratchy pollen throats and deluge rainy days;
thy blooms and leaves, sprouts and blades, magically rising back to life-
 eagerly we await the music of nature, singing its chorus once again...

     I am indeed a lover of the Spring (even with my allergies!!)  The sunny days are returning and the flowers are arriving; after what seemed like the longest Winter ever!  We have had a few days of thunderstorms, unpredictable rain and heavy clouds, but today the birds are chirping and the sun is shining bright.  I am excited for a day of adventures!
Mixed prints just feel so right in the Spring...this rose cardigan is actually a remix from one of my first posts many moons ago.  I mix and match it with all different floral prints, polka dots and tribal prints like this one, and it seems to just tie everything together.  This dress from Anthropologie is a dream.  The fit is lovely, the colors bright, and oh so comfy! The length is great, too!  (For reference I am 5"9.) Pair it with some Mary Janes, and you've got the perfect cute and casual outfit for all of your days adventures! 
I am excited for the warmer weather and pool days...
For fresh, local fruits and vegetables.  For sun dresses and photos and carefree days in the sun.
For adventures, music and art shows; for vintage scouting and crafting.
For not letting fear hold me back from trying new things and discovering new places! :)
 Life has been a lot of this lately:  Dinners on the deck with Daniel, and getting together with friends and family.  My friend Steph is getting married this Saturday, and I can hardly wait!!!!  Her bachelorette party was last weekend at the Beach and we had a blast.  

Back to those deck dinners; I have been getting into so many cook books this year, and whipping up simply veggie dishes has never been so fun!

What are you looking forward to this Spring?  

As always, thanks so much for reading! :)

  3. Clashing with a purpose! Yes! ^____^ <3 I love the mixed pattern dress and the floral cardigan! I wouldn't have the balls to do such a pairing, but that's why I get so much inspiration (and vicarious joy) from you!
