spring is here

it's officially the first day of spring! even though the temperatures are basically the same as yesterday, it feels like a fresh start. this new season means short sleeves, cute flats, and dresses with no tights. i hope to finally put my big jackets and knit scarves away for good. and honestly this doesn't make me the least bit sad. this winter seemed like an especially long one. i mean just on monday there was a few inches of snow on the ground! it's giving me extreme cabin fever and i'm ready to start planning some fun outdoor adventures. 


there's so much to look forward to in the upcoming months. my sister and anthony's sister are coming to visit this weekend. next weekend is my niece's first birthday. in april we have some friends coming to stay with us for a few days, my birthday, and celebrating easter with my fam. it's awesome looking at my calendar and having fun plans almost every weekend! i'm someone who likes staying busy (with the occasional lazy netflix binge day every once in a while- obvs). it helps keeps my happy and motivated. are you someone who's more spontaneous or do you like thinking ahead?


it's been a while since i've worn this vest but as soon as i put it on i remember why i bought it in the first place. it's just so fun!! if you don't have a fur vest-- you are making a huge mistake. dramatic, yes. but c'mon. you probably still have a few more weeks, if not months, of wearing it before it gets too warm. and in case you need more of a push check out this one and also this one. ahh, i want both! and don't forget to pair it with a colorful tee and some cool boots (both of which were stolen from my sister's closet. oops).



i hope everyone enjoys the first day of spring! buy yourself some flowers or something :)

xxoo,

  3. I've been on the fence about purchasing a fur vest...I think they are super cute but not sure if I could pull one off. Also, too hard to choose which color to get!

  15. We still have snow on the ground, and I've happily put some of my super wintery clothing away (until next time). I'd rather freeze at this point, because it's too depressing to wear that stuff!

    I love your blog and sense of style!! That necklace is perfect and I kind of can't believe it's from Forever 21.

  16. god, i can't wait to put the tights away. they're starting to mess up my cute outfits haha (it's the worst when you don't have the right color on hand!) That and I'm tired of buying new ones because of how easily I snag them. And this outfit is adorable- i love that vest!
