The poor trees... post storm at the entrance to our neighborhood.
I have always loved the look of succulents, so I finally decided to make my own planter. I picked up the succulents from a local garden center, the bowl in from Target, as well as the watering can (I found it in the dollar spot section for $5, this one is very similar and it's only $6). I think I am going to add two more succulents to the right side to fill it out.
My basil plant, from my aunt-in-law, is a happy camper on my kitchen widow seal. This photo is from the end of March, I love seeing the progression. You can purchase the entire set here!

Gorgeous Necklace and ring (no longer available, pretty option) from Kendra Scott, for all my Denver readers, they will be opening a store at Cherry Creek North this summer and it's the first one in Colorado! I cannot wait to visit it!

(I need to iron it and I might have the bottom altered to take off an inch... short girl problems)
Spring is here which means I get to finally start wearing dresses! Old Navy has a great selection of dresses, like this one and this girly option. A great way to make dresses more suitable for chilly weather is to layer a sweater or jacket. Because it was so warm last weekend I opted for a utility vest.
It's finally feeling like spring around here and I am loving it! I planted flowers (in pots) yesterday and hung my spring peony wreath. With the warm weather I felt inspired to dig into the back of my dresser and pull out these white jeans. I love white jeans, but I'm always a bit hesitant to wear them if I have a long day, because I almost always spill something on myself. Does anyone else have this issue?
One of my girlfriends let me barrow Me Before You. She told me to finish it alone and I am so glad I did because I definitely cried. Watch the trailer for the movie here! Make sure to read the book before the movie comes out. Oh, and I just bought this book to start soon.
Easter breakfast with Spring Tulips
If you saw this post, you know I cannot get enough of New Balance sneakers. So I had to order these for spring/summer.
I finally organized my linen closet when we were snowed in.
Finding a professional dress for work is almost like jean shopping. There are so many different styles and fits. This dress is by far one of my new favorite work dresses. I also love this one for the summer which is available in the gorgeous lilac color. Jcrew Factory seems to really know what a flattering silhouette looks like. Most of their professional dresses are just the right length and nicely fitted through your natural waist.
Wow yesterday was a crazy day! We got 12 inches of snow in 24 hours here in the Denver Metro area. The roads were terrible, on my way home from work (we closed early) I saw probably a dozen accidents. We took Neeko out and let him play in the snow, he loves running through it and eating it! Anyways I am obsessed with these New Balance '696' sneakers (see link below for retailers with sales), I have been wearing them nonstop on the weekends. In all honesty the weekends are so casual for me and this look has been my go-to as of lately.
It's officially spring! And I am so happy to finally
have nice weather. It makes me much more motivated to go running when I don't
have to bundle up just to be comfortable. Anyways, this dress is one that I
have had for a year or so now and I typically wear it to work, but I am trying
to make more pieces in my closet work for both work and play. I have linked similar options below. One thing I know to be true is that a simple striped
dress is a closet staple that you can easily change the look of with layers and
accessories. Like this gorgeous new monogram necklace from Onecklace (for those interested, the quality is extremely good, I am very impressed! Also I have linked a 10% discount code below).
