Well, hello Spring!

I cannot tell you how glad I am that spring is FINALLY here! Even though winters are usually pretty mild in Tennessee, this one seemed longer and colder than usual. (All you people from up North, don't you dare say anything... I am a weenie when it comes to the cold, ok?!?) 

This weather is perfect - high 60s/low 70s and sunny - but it makes it a little tricky to dress because as we all know, there are still a few cold spells to come & it still gets chilly at night. I laugh (on the inside, of course) when people, at the first sign of Spring, pull out their skirts and sandals... it's not quite time yet my darlings! I tried to balance the spring weather with my outfit yesterday. It was a little chilly in the morning, so I layered with a thin cardigan. I am glad I can finally wear these tights, too. The type of weave makes them hard to wear in the dead of winter, but now they are perfect! Maybe the over-the-knee boots don't scream "Spring," but I love them and want to wear them as much as I can before putting them away for the summer months! So don't be surprised if you see them in a couple more posts soon :)

Besides layering, what are some of the things you incorporate when the spring weather arrives? Enjoy your day!

Not the best picture of me but wanted to show you guys my earrings! I got them at a random little boutique in Portland, OR last summer. I love going to cities and finding no-name brands of funky jewelry! Next time you're in a new city,  you should look for a fun find too! (long chain earrings with a turquoise bead nestled in the middle)

Cardigan: French Connection, dress: forgot the name - from a boutique in my hometown,
belt: Express, boots: Nine West

Love these tights! They were a gift from my aunt Carol :) (my 2nd mom!)
