It Finally Feels like Spring

- Outfits


Yesterday was probably the first day it finally felt like spring to me. It got up to 50, the sun was out just long enough to put a smile on my face and I was more productive than I’ve been in months on a Sunday. I worked out, got groceries, made lunch and then threw dinner on in the crock pot, did a load of laundry and showered (YAY!) When I was getting ready I was in such a good mood, I just felt like wearing something that really reflected how I was feeling. No, I didn’t really have a reason to be dressed up per say, but a little bit of lilac, a white skater skirt and metallic pumps definitely matched my mood at the time. And I got the boyfriend’s approval, which is always a bonus!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Did you do anything fun?

    I LOVE YOUR SKIRT. You look so beautiful in these lighter colors, and your skirt is just gorgeous. I love springy days – finally, it’s starting to feel slightly springy (although I heard the word “snow” in the forecast for this week…GROSS).
