Spring Has Sprung!

Well, it's official: spring has sprung! While I'm still wearing a warm coat most of the time, it's so wonderful having longer, brighter days, and it's equally great watching all the plants bloom and spring back to life.

It's certainly not warm enough to go without tights yet, but I'm starting to put some of my warmer dresses back in the closet and am starting to dig out some of my favorite cotton dresses. This blue vintage number is one of my favorites. It's not anywhere near perfect condition, but the color and shape totally make me feel like Cinderella!

It was the perfect frock to wear to go look at the gorgeous cherry trees at UW with Katie on Saturday! We had been hoping to do some photos by those cherry trees, but the crowds were out of control, so we decided to settle for these pretty trees instead. Hopefully I can share some shots of the cherry blossoms later this week!

Besides hanging out with Katie, this weekend I spent Friday night eating pizza and watching Scandal and then Golden Girls with my friend, Jeremy, had a lot of lazy time, finally ironed some skirts I've been meaning to iron for weeks (isn't being an adult the worst sometimes?), and saw The Grand Budapest Hotel with my friend, Zack. Ya'll, that might be my very favorite Wes Anderson movie. I was giggling pretty much non-stop and truly loved almost every second of it. If you've been thinking about seeing it, I would urge you to do so soon! I was all smiles the rest of the day after I saw it.

I will say, after taking a week off from the blog world, it's tough getting back into the swing of things, but I'm doing so slowly but surely. While it was nice to have the break, I certainly missed you guys! I love keeping up with you guys, so I'm glad to be catching up.

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

XOXO

  6. Your Cinderella dress is so sweet! I love your hairdo, too, would be great to see a closer shot of it sometime.

    You are so lucky that your surroundings are blooming to life already--I haven't seen ANY greens or blooms or even buds in the Boston area yet. And we're expecting a huge snowstorm this week! It's probably normal for this time of year, but now that I read so many blogs and see all you West Coasters with your flowers and such, I'm a little jealous.

    1. Thanks, Marlene! I'll see if I can manage a close-up sometime- you'll see all my frizz and bobby pins if I do :)

      Sorry to hear you're not seeing any spring yet in Boston! Hopefully you'll get to have some good spring weather when you go to Germany. We do kind of kill it with spring and summer on the West Coast :)
