Fun Spring Finds

Fun Spring Finds

I just adore spring. It's probably my favorite season. The weather is warm, but still bearable in SC. All the leaves and flowers are bursting forth in a show of new life. It's such a magical and colorful season. I just want to be outside all the time, enjoying all that spring has to offer.

 

I think most of the time I use fashion to express my mood (and whatever mommy duties I have). During spring, my mood is usually happy and playful. So why wouldn't I wear an outfit that makes me happy? Exactly, I would. You know what just screams happy and playful to me? Ruffles and florals!

This style may not have florals, but it's definitely in the midst of a location full of flowers and new blooms. I kind of feel like a flower when I'm wearing ruffles. They just add a feminine, delicate, sweet touch to any piece.

I picked this blouse up at TJ Maxx, while on our trip to Florida. The only problem I have with this top is, it wrinkles very easily (as you can see). It's just too pretty not to wear though! I also picked up the belt while in Florida, but at Ross for a mere $7! I'd been looking for a simple, thin black belt for forever and it just never crossed my mind to hit up a discount store. So glad I did! And although I would love to be wearing my white skinny jeans with this top, it's just not practical for the mom of a toddler right now. In the south, you can only get away with wearing black for a short period of time, so I've got to make the most of it!
