It’s like this every year. Our first glimpse of sun and decent temperatures (around 10 degrees) and the west coast is transformed into full on spring! I am so excited to switch my wardrobe to all the cute spring items I have stored away, if only the weather would co-operate!
With spring also comes spring cleaning. I really do need to go through my wardrobe each season and have a toss, sell, or keep bag. I find I hold onto many items of clothing because I am attached. However I need to make room for some of the cute new things I have been finding lately!!
One of my favorite purchases this year hasn’t even arrived in the mail. I have been following blogger Jen from JenLovesKev for a while now, and she became one of Mod Cloth’s Blogger’s of the Month the other week and had a dress named after her. It really fits with her style, which I love, and I knew as soon as I saw the dress it would fit perfectly in my wardrobe. I can see myself wearing it all year round; with cardigans and thick tights right now or on it’s own with a simple belt or necklace in the summer.
Aren’t the little foxes adorable? It also has pockets at the front which for me is a real deciding factor. It has pockets? Done!!!
Then last weekend, I went shopping down by Seattle at the outlets and found myself a great new purse. I really love Kensie & Kensie Girl clothing, not just because they are Canadian but because they create such nice pieces that work easily into my wardrobe. I can always find something I like from Kensie. So when I found this cute purse with a little bow on it, I fell in love! It was super cheap to, around $35!! I almost bought one in a gorgeous blue but decided I really like the shape of this one.
Spring has also livened up my room with this gorgeous new Teen Vogue bed set that I won! While at Teen Vogue Fashion U, there were many displays set up in the lobby we could look at between classes. One of them was a bed with their new bed spreads you can now purchase at JCPenny stores. I entered the contest because I loved the flower print and thought it was really different. One day I came home to three big boxes and inside was this bed set! I was so surprised and happy I couldn’t help dancing around and showing it off to anyone that would look. My dreams are sweeter now that I have this lovely floral comforter to keep me warm at night.
I think the colors really compliment my purple walls, and the comforter would liven up a couch as well since it’s only a twin size. Thank you again teen Vogue for this amazing prize!!!
So that’s been my spring so far, how has everyone else been this year?
