Mother Nature has been one big tease lately! After sitting on an outdoor patio eating a cupcake Saturday, I cleaned an inch of snow and ice off my car Tuesday morning. Not cool, not cool at all. Lots of layers, while still trying to dress appropriate for spring seems to be the ongoing theme after our one 70 degree day. I’ve been drawn to peach and coral lately. I’m keeping my colors light and spring appropriate while keep my knee-high, wool socks on under my jeans and booties!

Outside of the weather, I am checking things off my wedding to-do list! It is amazing how creating a list, then crossing just a few things off, can lift such a weight! Slowly, it is all coming together. I’m getting incredibly impatient now. I can’t wait for our wedding day to just be here – to finally call my best friend “husband” and to celebrate with all of our incredible friends and  family!

I’m a little short on words as I write this. I’ve started to reach panic mode with the growing to-do list I have for the wedding, so I’m sure that has a little something to do with the lack of words. Visions of bridesmaid dresses, invitations, wedding cakes, and ties for our groomsmen are about all that have been floating through my head lately! We have 6 months before our wedding, but it seems like time is flying by and before we know it, October will be here! If anyone has been diving in Indonesia or Fiji, I’d love to hear about your experience! Those are the top destinations for our honeymoon, but if you have other suggestions, please do share!!

As for the outfit, you saw this sweater with in all monochromatic outfit here. Since it is spring, though the temperature would fool me into thinking otherwise, I thought I would lighten up the outfit with chambray, jeans, and a sparkly necklace.

The snow has started to melt and the calendar tells us it is spring, but with snow flurries yesterday, the temperature just isn’t there yet. C’mon spring! I’m getting so impatient waiting for you to arrive! While I’m still sticking to layers, I’ve definitely been drawn to brighter colors that have more of a warm weather feel. I would usually pair navy stripes with red for a more nautical feel, but the orange felt more appropriate for the current temps. Hope it is starting to finally warm up where you are!
