March has had a great start for me since I've spent the past few days in Virginia visiting with Michael's family. It was his grandmother's 80th birthday so pretty much everyone in his family was in town to visit and celebrate, and it was a total blast! Lots of time spent laughing and telling stories, which is one of my favorite things about family time...we also shot a blowdart gun, which is my new favorite thing about family time. The only downside of the visit is that Virginia is cold, y'all! I was definitely not prepared for that weather. I spent as much time as possible under a blanket, because this girl is so over the cold.
So I don't know if this concept is something only I embrace or if it's widely acceptable, but when I really start to miss Spring I wear some of my most Spring-y outfits. So even if it doesn't feel like Spring, dammit, it can look like Spring. Picking one of the six daffodils that has bloomed also helps me with this! This Hawaiian print halter dress by Blue Velvet Vintage is a quintessential Spring piece with it's beautiful coral, floral print and it's halter straps. The coral is such a lovely color, and doesn't look awful on my pink-toned skin tone. As much as I love the look of this dress the thing that excites me the most is that it has a metal zipper. I know, I know that seems like a silly thing to get excited about, but plastic zippers are SO awful. The metal zipper puts the quality of this over the top in my eyes. I wish other brands would take note and use metal zippers.
What's your favorite Spring outfit?
