Spring Greening

If you are a fellow Minnesotan or you live in the surrounding midwest, you know that spring not only arriving on time but EARLY (insert tears of joy and awe) is utterly unheard of. It seems that mother nature is in a really good mood this year and, hence, it was warm weather and blue skies this weekend. Please, everyone, don't do anything to make her angry - recycle, plant a tree, hug a puppy - just keep her happy so she keeps us happy ok?

I was feeling spring in the air and I've been eager to break out my limited collection of spring duds that have been waiting in the recesses of my closet (I was not prepared to have to be prepared this early!):

I found this trench in this wonderus bright green on a thrifting excursion and instantly knew it should be in my closet. Even if you aren't the type to wear bright colors, you can give a basic outfit great pop with the outerwear.

One of the reasons I feel in love with this dress is the beading and the geometric pattern. It's a great little summer something.

I keep getting scared that this is all too good to be true and I will wake up the next morning to 3 feet of snow and below zero temps. I'm keeping hope alive that spring really is here. Thank you nature, from the bottom of my heart and the back of my closet.

How are you celebrating the arrival of spring?

Trench: Zara (thrifted)
