Zara Wants

I made the mistake of looking at Zara online the other day.  I loved just about everything.  If I had an occasion for such a dress, here is an outfit I would love to wear.

Pinteresting Wednesday: Dreaming of Spring

I won't go on and on again about how I can't take winter anymore....but really....I can't take it anymore.




I'm ready for spring blossoms and flowers.  I actually took the picture above a few springs ago.  It was the first thing I pinned on Pinterest when I was trying to figure out what pinning to Pinterest was.  I always think I want to put more of my own pictures on the blog, it's a start I guess.


I'm ready to decorate for Easter.  I guess I could go ahead and do that now.  It's depressing how many Easter egg hunts around here still have snow.



I'm ready for fresh asparagus... and Michigan Strawberries!

What do you think about...mint bags?

Last year mint was a very popular color.  I mostly noticed mint jeans (bought some) and other mint clothing (yep, bought a mint cardigan and top).  This year mint has spilled over into accessories (at least more than I noticed last year).  What do you think about mint bags?  Would you carry one?

Friday's Fancies: Pink and Red

This Friday's Fancies' topic is pink and red.  Perfect for Valentine's Week.  I went for two looks - one a bit dressy and one more casual.

This dressy look is reminiscent of the Giambattista Valli look I blogged about here.  I still love this look and it is an easy one to recreate.  Just add some jewelry and a clutch and you are good to go.





Dressy Look - skirt - top - shoes 

I am loving the gingham shirts from J.Crew.  I would layer a pink gingham button down under a red sweater.  Cute!






Casual Look - button down shirt - sweater - jeans - boots
