'O, How This Spring of Love Resembleth'


I absolutely adore Spring (when it behaves, that is).  Even though it had just finished raining, the trees and greenery were all so lush and green.  Ah, such a tease for what I hope is to come:  warmth, bare arms and shoulders and legs and feet, picnics among flowers and full swaying trees giving much needed shade with their leafy shadows! Although, right about now, I'm wishing for a 'bonfire' summer (as the BF and Murphy would say)! Screw shade!!

First wore this dress on my blog here (always fun looking at start-up posts and seeing how far I've come!)











What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Urban Outfitters
Sheer Sweater: Aqua - Bloomingdales
Rings: Mango, Forever21
Hat: Free People
Earrings: Ciccada - Etsy
Necklace: Maslo Design - Need Supply
Hunter Wellies

A BIG thank you to Cri of Il Piccolo Mondo de Cri for awarding me the Creative Blogger Award! Even though her blog is entirely in Portuguese, her incredible knack for putting outfits together translates!! Go check her out if you have not already!

I'd also like to thank you ladies for all your responses on the Lita question.  I think I'm just going to go for it.  What the hell, right?  If/when I get sick of them, I'll either hide them under a pair of REALLY long pants that I can't be bothered to hem or stick them on my shelf as part of shoe history!  I'm going to order this gray pair as soon as I can figure out how to get them at a discount! Oh, and I WILL get them at a discount by hook or by crook!
