Day of Green

Happy late St. Patrick’s day! I admit,  I think I subconsciously wore green for the holiday. Until a few hours into my day, I didn’t actually realize I had put on this green pleated skirt to honor St. Patty’s. And the wind made for an interesting photo-taking experience.

I found this vintage mint green skirt at a thrift store for 99 cents! It has most definitely been one of my best (and most versatile) thrift store finds. The leather jacket is from Victoria’s Secret online and the shoes are about 7 years old so I don’t remember where I found them.

Springing Up Spring

Springing Up Spring

 

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m sure ready for Spring to get here. Inevitably, the weather warm-up means challenging wardrobe decisions. It sometimes takes a lot of effort to resist the urge to dress in anything that says “It’s warm outside!” I am a natural freeze baby, so I am one of those people that carries a sweater in my purse at all times…even when it’s an 85 degree July day (air conditioning, people!) My cool blood temp is probably also what reminds me to still wear long sleeves, closed toed shoes, or layers when the weather starts to break in the Spring because I know that if I get too warm-weather excited, I’ll regret it within the next couple days when I wake up with an “I told you so” cold.
 Above, I put together what I would consider to be a pre-Spring appropriate outfit. It brings out those expected petal shades, but the long sleeves, jeans, and booties still keep in the heat for when the sun goes down and the air turns cool again.

Falling Water

“Raindrops are fallin’ on my head”…was stuck in my head all day long yesterday because of all the rain…(but then of course today we woke up to a blanket of snow-it’s been like that guest that won’t leave).  We got out to the CLE Metroparks in Hinckley to take some pictures of this great waterfall and really capture the theme of the day-water.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of this holiday, I thought I’d post this awesome green dress from Anthropologie that currently has me swooning.  What a beautiful emerald green it is, too.  My mouth dropped when I found these earrings…both for their beauty, and their price tag. 8-O
I think I’d likely wear this ensemble to a Spring bridal shower, or something of the like.

Lilacs and a Coral Skirt

The lilacs are in bloom! Lilacs are so lovely and fragrant, I wish they were in bloom for a longer period of time. But we can at least enjoy them while they last…
