Lately I’ve been operating under the theory that if I wear a lot of florals, it’ll make spring come. That’s how weather works, right? 😉
I wore this outfit for a short nature walk over the weekend, where there was plenty of snow but also plenty of sun. We also saw a few cute dogs, including a tiny lab/husky mix puppy with one blue eye and one brown eye!

If I wear lots of bright colors and florals, then spring will come more quickly, right? I’m pretty sure that’s how weather works…

Boston has a reputation for being unfriendly, but I’ve never found that to be true. Yesterday, while out and about in the Public Garden, I asked a stranger if she could take a picture of me in front of a pink tree–and she was super-helpful, asked if I was a fashion blogger (yay!), and took a bunch of pictures from different distances. We exchanged contact info, and it turns out she sells Stella & Dot jewelry; you can check out her page here.
Thank you, Liz, for these lovely pictures! 🙂

I bought this dress from the lovely Natalie of Extra Large as Life, and it fits perfectly–I’m convinced we’re body-shape twins. 🙂
It’s rainy and gray right now, but last week, the weather was lovely. My friend Mary and I celebrated by frolicking among flowering trees!
Flowering-tree-season here in New England is short, but it’s gorgeous while it lasts.
And they smell so good.
I hope you’ve all been enjoying your spring (or fall, for my Southern hemisphere readers)!
