Pretending It’s Spring with Pastels

It’s getting to be that time of winter where lightening up your wardrobe comes naturally. I’ve been trading my dark black and grey clothing for lighter shades of whites and pastels in hopes that spring shows up sooner rather than later! Though after this past weekend, saying “pretending it’s spring” definitely seems like a poor choice of words. It was in the high 60’s in Chicago this past weekend! In February! Truly magical, I could hardly believe it. I look my computer outside and spent my days getting some work done in the sun.

I had an appointment with my foot doctor on Thursday morning and found out I have to stay in my boot for a few more weeks at least, which kind of took the wind out of my sails after such a rejuvenating trip. But I got to go-ahead to start physical therapy to begin working on the rest of my body, so I suppose that’s a positive!

Four Fun Outfits for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day can get a bad wrap, but I always think it’s fun to play into the holidays and dress up with a little bit of theme! Whether it’s a pretty pink dress with some scallops at the waist, a classic black and white ensemble with some feminine details, or a play on prints with polka dots and hearts, you can add some personality to your outfits without looking too cliché. What I love most about the four outfits I styled is that while they’re super cute for Valentine’s Day, they’re so versatile for everyday, too.
