Emerging Spring

This post is way overdue (and these photos are from early February), but I figured this would be a good stepping stone to getting back into the swing of blogging again. To be quite honest, I haven't taken outfit photos in weeks (and for good reasons), but I'm really starting to miss it. When you've done something once, twice, three times a week for multiple years it gets engrained in your brain as an every day routine, and once you start to go without it, well, you start to feel not like yourself anymore. Even thought I may not get back to outfit photos this week (I'm knee deep in studying for my comps exams - oh grad life), but I will be excited to do so when the time is right.

This darling cream lace top from Emerging Thoughts has gotten so much wear lately. I love how it instantly adds a little bit of uniqueness to an otherwise plain, staple white top. As of now it's out of stock on the Emerging Thoughts website, but right now they are having a super sweet spring fever sale (15% off store wide with the code springfever).

What's on your spring wish list? I haven't been clothes shopping in months and think it's (almost) finally time to pick up a few warm weather purchases. I know I'm in desperate need of some new sleeveless tops, a few pairs of jeans (I'm so not a shorts kind of girl), and a new pair of sandals.  I did just pick up some new polishes from new Essie Spring 2013 collection, and I've got my eye on a few bright lipsticks and blushes for the warmer months. Oh, spring, I'm ready for you!
