Early Spring

The unseasonably warm weather we've been having around here has been making me think about spring, and gearing toward more spring oriented outfits. I'm really not ready to fully commit to a spring wardrobe (fall/winter weather much more suits my favorite kinds of outfits), but indulging in a little light weather clothing for a day is quite alright with me.

For Christmas Scott gave me this amazing silk skirt with flamingos on it. The fabric is quite amazing, and I adore the pleats. I was just too excited to wait until spring to wear it, so I figured I could pull it off on a warm, semi-sunny day. I've never owned a statement piece quite like it, and it was so thoughtful of Scott to get it for me. He really has an eye for unique pieces, and I so love him for that.

Scott has been wearing this sweater religiously lately. It's extra cozy, and suits his personality. Do you ever wear something that just feels like you? I'm positive this is how Scott feels about this sweater. It has his name written all over it!

Oh yes, there are elbow patches on it! Just his style!

In other news, we've been really enjoying being outside lately. Lots of walks happening around here and dreaming up what the semester will hold for us. I've come to realize that I really do feel much better each day when I get out and walk around in the fresh air and sunshine. I see many, many walks in our near future.

Today I have some reading for class to finish up, and some picking up to do. Tonight I have class at 5:40 p.m. and I'm really hoping it goes well. My class goes until 8:30 p.m., so I think I'm going to need an evening coffee. Going to class late has become my excuse for drinking coffee so late. I swear, I need it though!

What are you up to today? Do you have class today?

PS My favorite Ugglebo Clogs is having a up to %25 off sale and today is the last day to score some deals! I've featured my favorite pair a few times on this blog (here!) and because I adore them so much I wanted to make sure you knew about the sale! Peace, love and clogs! XO

  1. Aw, what an adorable skirt - go Scott! What a beautiful gift and I love how you've styled it. Hope your day is lovely, sweet girl. xo V

  2. your outfit is amazing, and i have to say, it just might be one of my favorites because i love the colors, and because flamingos are my favorite birds!

    also, scott's cardi is great. i've been trying to get chris to wear one for ages, but unfortunately they have that old man stigma which some people (chris) just can't get past.

  3. what a great skirt! and its is odd if I really want scott's sweater?
