My inner fashionista believes that spring is about bright colors, short skirts and long dresses. The rest of me knows it's a time for growth, change, fresh starts and new beginnings. This past season was a tough one, and I'm welcoming newness with open arms. I'm ready to get back on my feet and take on the world once more.

We live in an imperfect, yet beautiful place. Believing anything else but that is a waste of time. Let the coming season's blooms enfold you. Let yourself go.


  1. Perfect, perfect post. Firstly, you look spectacular; I love everything about the genius of pairing that top and skirt. And secondly, what you wrote was beautiful. Especially the last bit, it's something I can never be reminded of too many times, personally.

    And also? I want your prescription glasses. Terribly.

  2. it's a new season, baby! and its gonna be great. i love the colors you paired in this look. and im also just completely in love with the color of that skirt!


  3. I couldn´t agree more. You look absolutely lovely and ready to bloom.

  4. Love love love! Bloom madly my dear!

  5. Nice photos, I like the colour of your skirt, the yellow is a great compliment to your top colour. Looks like your'e heading the right direction because you being open to new things is when the growth begins. :)

  6. Great spring experimenting.... very cute!

  7. Love love this outfit....the skirt is my fav.....looking hot lady:)

  8. It's our imperfections that make us perfect. without them we'd all be the same, nothing to help us stand out as individuals. We call these differences imperfections when we should be embracing the things that make us unique.
    Such a beautiful post xx

  9. Wonderful post, fully agree on all the choices, colors and I love that caption under your last picture! It is time for fresh starts (and yellow mini skirts!)

    I actually think the imperfections are what makes the world, life, and each of us beautiful. Perfect is boring, don't you think?


  29. Love your outfit!!! I would snatch it off your back and wear it just as you smart the print with the yellow.

    I'm sorry you had a difficult time last season, but looking forward as you are is the BEST way to be. I hope you have wonderful wonderful tomorrows :)

  31. Loooveee this! I love your clothes! The colors are so great. You are so stylish. I am loving your photographs as well- they're so beautiful. I love flowers! The 1st pic is my fav. <3 <3 H

  32. You said it, sister. I'm ready to let this season unfold, too! (Can I steal your skirt? Soooo cute!) Love the juxtaposition of beauty and natural against graffiti and broken glass. Ah, life.
