Mint Julep

Wow, it has been way too long since I last posted some outfit photos! Things have just been so busy, busy on the blog (like with an amazing giveaway), and in my everyday life (school, visiting grandma, checking out an amazing diner in downtown, and having a bonfire with friends). This week has also had some ups and downs, but I feel content, and at peace now sitting here writing to you all now. I've always thought of blogging as a type of therapy, and I'm so thankful to everyone that takes the time out of their busy day to read my random thoughts and comment to let me know that you agree, or feel the same way too. What would I do without you, friends?

On another note, my spring wardrobe is starting to come together nicely. I've always been a big fan of transitional pieces, but I've come to realize that it's nice to have a few garments that really set you in the mood for the season. This pretty Mint Julep belted top from Ever + Mi Crush that I'm wearing is definitely one of those springy pieces for me. I love the mixture of the mint and salmon colors, the sweet braided belt, the capped sleeves (perfect for how warm it is today - almost 80!), and the flowy peplum! I have a feeling I'm going to be getting a lot of wear out of this pretty blouse all spring long!

Last night Scott and I were invited to bonfire with a few friends in an amazing desert community space that two of our friends share with their neighbors. It was chilly out, but the fire kept us all warm (and entertained - it kept spitting ashes). Now that winter is on its way out the door, it was nice to celebrate the chilly weather was such sweet friends and relish in it while we still can (hello 80, 90, 100 degree days we having coming for us). There was even a friends trains that went zooming by right behind us as we sat on wooden benches and mixed matched chairs, who making quite a ruckus as they went, but somehow they made the evening that much more magical. For awhile there I didn't even feel like I was in the city, but somewhere way out in the dessert, taking in winter's charm.

How has your weekend been so far? What wardrobe pieces are you looking to bring into your spring closet?

  1. i love the combination colors of your top!! and your cardigan too! xo


  2. Here in the UK, it's still pretty cold (we had snow on Wednesday!) so I can't wait for spring to arrive. I always love being able to go out in just a cardigan, with no big winter coat!

    This weekend is mainly school work for me since I'm in the last couple of months of my undergrad studies.

    Have a great Sunday!
