But the weather hasn't really felt like Spring. It's been overcast and cold. Even though I've been wearing vibrant spring colors, they were hidden under coats and sweaters.
Today is quite a contrast. Talk about irony--I went out to the Mike & Chris sample sale to stock up on some much-needed winter staples, and I walked into a heat wave. I figured that I didn't need a jacket since if I get cold, I'll just wear one of the ones I would be buying. Good thing I settled with that twisted logic. Had I worn another layer, I would have cooked.
Florals is always "in" every Spring, but I've never really been a florals person. Sure, I have a few floral print dresses, but as far as tops goes, I don't wear a whole lot of patterns. But when I dropped off some stuff at the Goodwill last weekend, I found some florals that I could wear:
(Vintage top/J Brand jeans that I've been wearing all the time/Gryson for Target bag/my own bracelet/Target flats from the last post)
This was a pretty incredible vintage find. I picked it out about 5 minutes before closing time. There are no tags, so it's probably handmade. The embroidery is really exquisite, and the design does not look old-fashioned at all, as some embroidered items can appear. At under $5, it was almost literally a steal. I thought that I'd have to wait a while before I can wear it, but today's weather gave me a chance to wear it sooner.
Spring is also a time for Spring Cleaning. I'll talk about it next time.
