When it’s 65 in March

Well people, if you live in the Philly area you know that at one point before the wind became unbearably cold again we were teased with a sliver of spring heaven. It was 65! (Sun’s out guns out am I right?)  What better way to spend the day than avoiding homework to hit the park without tights!!! This hasn’t happened since what, September?

Any hoo, Spring I swear is almost here, and with spring comes all the joys of spring dressing. This is personally my favorite season to dress because frankly it’s the only season both jackets and sandals function together.

(Okay I wasn’t wearing sandals, but I could tell mother nature was trying to trick us.)

Dressing spring is so simple, unlike the complicated layering required for winter. Ditch the hats, gloves, scarves, and parka for a maxi dress and jean jacket. That’s all you need to look fabulous! Accessorize with a statement necklace and some moonies and get outside!

My favorite maxi’s for this season have a great all over print. They make a statement while still looking  effortless.

Take it to the streets and soak up that much needed vitamin D. The winter blues are over…well almost. Spring is around the corner which means, its almost practically summer.

Meet Alaina! One of my favorite fancy ladies! Not only did I survive community college with this girl but after a week of watching my puppies, she may love them more than I do.

Alaina is a fellow artist that take inspiration from the land and her native roots. Here’s some other kooky facts about her:

– She is currently packing up her Jeep to travel cross country to go to ASU for printmaking.

-She has a soft spot for Vintage rings.

-Summer gets her through the rest of the year which why her heart has landed her in the desert.

Alaina’s laid back style has her ready for any adventure. Throw on a some chambray  and some shorts and you’re set for any adventure. And don’t for get her staple turquoise moonies! No shoes required.

Look out for this girl, her work is extremely inspiring and one day I can see her owning her own shop selling her prints along with vintage and consignment items.

I love you girl.
