egg hunt

Even after so many seasons, I'm still utterly in love with this H&M Inclusive skirt. Something about the color and extra poufy shape is just so appealing to me! Decided to pair it with more stripes and pastels to get just enough of a did-you-mean-to-look-like-an-easter-egg effect. Mission accomplished, I think. I don't think any other combination of items from my closet could scream "OMGSPRING" more than this one!

Been doing some major online window shopping of late. Will share what I'm absolutely dying over a bit later!

graphic patterns

Apparently colored bottoms are becoming a habit for me. I'm totally in love with the color of these jeans but they are too big! Sad! I'll definitely be trying to shrink these in the wash. Also, I've become completely obsessed with simple, graphic prints and patterns. Polka dots, stripes, zigzags, cat prints, chair prints, bird prints--EVERYTHING. It's insane. Every time I browse online, I'm all *MOAR PRINTZ PLEAZ!* Anyone else feeling like this lately??

Anyway! Super excited for spring. Busting out some new clothes, updating home decor, and getting around to some fun DIY projects. Can't wait! :)
What are you guys doing to prep for Spring? Any DIY projects you'd like to share? :D

P.S. Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post. I love reading them! ♥ I try to respond to all questions so check back if you ask one! :)

mood booster

[ :: Steve Madden snake print pumps (similar, similar) :: ]

This dress has been sitting in my closet for AGES now. Every time I pulled it out, I'd put it on, look at myself in the mirror, and go "HOLY CRAP THAT'S PINK," and quickly change out of it. Well, this past weekend was the first super warm weekend we've had in a while (80 degrees!!!) and wearing something super bright just felt right. This dress is definitely a mood booster--you can't help but feel happy in it!
The heels were a total steal (from a Nordstrom pre-sale!) and the clutch was from the bf for Valentine's Day. him!

Anyway, you might have noticed that I now include links on where to buy what I'm wearing! Woohoo! I've gotten a ton of emails from readers asking where they can find what I'm wearing, and I always feel awful when I say it's no longer available. =/ Soooo, if I can't find the exact item online, I'll post a link to something similar.  Hope that helps! :)

P.S. Go enter the Beso giveaway! $150 for pretty much whatever you want. Seriously! :)
