Spring Forward!

Um, can we just talk about this weekend’s weather for a minute?  (Friends in New England and the Midwest, you may want to avert your eyes).  It was almost 70 degrees and sunny the whole time!  Sure, I’ve had a headache for four days because of the weather change, and I may have gotten my first mosquito bite of the season today (thanks, Georgia…), but guys.  70 degrees.  I feel like I have a new lease on life!

So, to celebrate, of course I wore the most spring-y thing I could find in my closet.  Usually I get sick when the weather changes, not only from allergies, but I also forget that just because it’s above freezing doesn’t mean I should break out the shorts and tank tops.  Today, I at least had enough good sense to wear a cardigan, and that was sufficient.  I’m gonna be honest, I even got a little hot at one point (that last sentence was really just to brag to the Northerners).

Did you have good weather this weekend?  If so, what did you do?  I can’t wait to hear!

80 Days of Summer: Bows for Dayz

Today’s outfit is a premature celebration of my favorite holiday – Independence Day (you probably saw that coming).  Fireworks, barbecues, cold drinks, and America – there’s nothing better.

I bought these cuties a year or two ago right before the 4th, and they’ve been a staple ever since.

I hope y’all are okay with the ol’ red, white, and blue, because this is a preview of my suitcase for the next 4 days…
