With Spring just around the corner, I couldn't be happier to get rid of the short, cold days of Winter. To be able to take pictures outside without losing feeling in your fingers. Smiling without your lips trembling into some awkward grimace (my excuse for not smiling...sorry for my grumpy face)! Having a normal colored nose instead of a red Rudolph-like one. Losing the pale, blotchy-ness that takes over once the summer tan has faded away. Wearing skirts with bare legs and not knocking your knees together like a crazy woman. It may look all nice and sunny here but let me tell you looks can be deceiving. All of these things and more make Winter less ideal for a fashion blogger. But with Spring comes Summer, and with Summer comes sweaty feet, frizzy hair, and simpler outfits. Layering is not an option in the blazing heat of an east coast August.

There are downsides to every season, of course. But rather than look at the downsides, I'm going to focus on the ups. And Spring is packed with them! It's safe to say that I'm SO ready for Spring!

What are you looking forward to most for spring?

  47. i don't actually take any pics of myself, i rarely do that. and i mainly blog about fashion editorials but since i style and take pics for my best friend's blog i know what you mean about freezing to death while being outside, and then when you wish for summer to come and it actually comes its not as great as it seemed back in winter..
    p.s llooooove the mix and match of printts and that funky necklace. and i own a similar pair of shoes, super comfy
