Winter 2012 Recap






Happy spring, everyone!  In looking through this past winter's posts, I'm happy to see that I didn't fall into a rut with my outfits as much as I have in past winters.  The winter season always seems to bring out a lot of, "I don't know what to wearrrrr..." whining in me..... and probably due to our mild weather, I didn't find myself complaining too much this past season.  Come to think of it, a lot of my outfits were practically spring-inspired... even back in December when I was still pulling out the cropped pants.

I'm celebrating today's beautiful spring day with a little bridesmaids shopping with one of my best pals. Wish us luck!

My Boy and Me

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  My day has been filled with running errands, and so wearing something comfy felt perfectly appropriate.  I was going to break out the summer sandals, but decided to bring my big Brown with me for the day, and this boy certainly doesn't want to walk around town with his momma in wedges.

(How cute is his John Deere bandana!?)

Everybody Everywear: Green

I definitely should have gotten a little more creative with this Everybody Everywear post, but I just needed one more excuse to wear these pants again.  

I apologize for the messy wrinkles (it's been a looong day), but I'm not sorry for the putting the pants on repeat.  These things are so soft, I just might wear them to the gym.  (And let's face it, we've probably all seen people wear stranger things on the treadmill.)

Some Spring Staples

I made a quick trip to the mall last week and knew exactly what I was looking for.  I had 2 essential spring needs wants and was waiting for a nice sale.  I love my Perfect Oxford in pink, and after E recently shrunk my other favorite white shirt, I thought this one would be a good replacement.  I also had my mind set on a pair of these soft cropped pants...I'm sure I'll wear 'em to death this spring season!

Pink Silk

This skirt has been sitting in my closet for a while now.  

Yes, basically what I just wrote should be a crime.

I purchased this fantastic silk garment before Christmas, and for some insane reason, I haven't given it a spin around town, until now.  Soft, silky, Betty Draper-like attire that I've been passing up day after day?!

I'm ashamed of myself.

Focus on the Important Stuff

So is it strange for a bride-to-be to have pretty regular nightmares about her big day?  I've definitely had a handful of them since our August engagement, and it's the worst.  Basically, every single one is about the same thing--being unprepared.  In last night's version, my dad refused to get dressed in his suit in time for the wedding and I had to dance with him while he was in a t-shirt and jeans.  Past wedding-related nightmares have included missing flowers, forgotten gown, bad hair, etc.  

I'm going to have to give myself some serious Zen time before bed each night so that I can focus on what this wedding is really about.  You know, love, commitment.. the big stuff.

But seriously, Dad, put the suit on.

Grace Winery

Yes, today was a good day.  We got to spend the afternoon inside of our wedding venue tasting all of the different wines offered at this new Pennsylvania winery.  I can't say enough good things about Sweetwater Farm and Grace Winery, and I am beyond ecstatic about getting married here.  Currently they are offering a few seasons of pino gris, rose, chardonnay and merlot.  They also put together such a great sangria, we're considering making it a signature drink for our big day.

Anyone out there go with a fun signature drink for their wedding?  I'd love to hear some fun ideas for displaying and serving everything!

Since it's March

I figured that since it's the first day of March and hitting over the 50 degree mark, it was safe to ditch the tights.  I pulled out my favorite ballerina skirt, and kept the rest really basic.

This skirt is without a doubt, one of my favorite items of clothing.  I always look at it and think about all of the options I have, but when it comes to actually wearing the thing, I keep playing it a little safe.  How would you wear this skirt?  Perhaps with a printed oxford?  Tucked or belted?  Layered?  With a t-shirt or blazer?  I need some ideas, people!
