What to Wear >> Florals

My first "real" post since coming back! It's nice to be back in the saddle again. I'm still working on getting all of my trip pictures sorted through, it might be a week or so, but in the meantime, here we are again with the What to Wear series! Seeing how yesterday was the official first day of spring, it's only fitting that we are going with florals.

While I was in India, everything burst into bloom! Now, don't hate. I've been eyeing up the weather in the rest of the Northern climes, and I know that most people aren't so lucky to have things blooming, let alone be able to see the bare ground. I feel for you; I endured 27 Minnesota winters before I left, so I know how frustrating this time of year can be! Don't worry, though. While everyone else is slipping on shorts on going on picnics in June, we'll still be here in the grey and drizzle. Or so I've been told at least.

Despite the sunshine and blue skies seen here, it was actually still a bit chilly and and VERY windy while I took these pics. I went with this dress since it has sleeves, so it's not too bare for this early spring day. Then, I decided to add some pastel tights to lighten up the look a bit and add an extra layer. Throw some birds on it (the necklace) and BAM! spring look = complete.

We are now doing something very exciting! A link up! This little feature keeps growing and growing. So, if you'd like to participate and/or want to check out more sweet florals, head on over to Nicole's blog!

    I'm with Shayla! JEALOUS! Those blossoms in the background are gorgeous. We got a fresh dump of snow this morning. Happy spring!! Ha.

    You look great. I'm so glad you're home safe and sound. I can't wait to read all about your trip.

  3. BLOOMING BLOSSOMING TREES! ACK! I just looked out the window, and I can barely see the building across the street through the swirling snow.

    And while I might be totally jealous of your spring, I think I am equally jealous of those mint tights!

    And I can't wait to hear more about your trip...it was super fun watching things unfold on Instagram!

  4. Really cute! love the colors of the dress, and the necklace! =}

  5. Wow, beautiful! I'll try not to be jealous knowing that our spring is coming soon! And you with your rain later on...none of us have it perfect. :) really cute outfit, dear.

  6. The blooming trees are so wonderful! I can't wait for them to show up some leaves and flowers here! It's too bad it's windy there.. Nice tights! :-)

    Hopefully the wind was blowing some spring air over the Cascdes and into Idaho for you. :)

    Yay, it was so fun sharing it as it happened! I'll try and think warm thoughts for you.

    Eek, I hope that snow is on it's way out soon! My family back in Minnesota are facing the same thing. At least the days are getting longer, eh?
