Girly Things Thursday: Spring Favorites

May 10, 2012

I love Spring weather(minus the pollen) and all the beautiful colors it brings with the flowers in full bloom. Putting the constant sneezing and watery eyes I get from this season I also enjoy breaking out dresses and short sleeves. I have a few other favorites this time of year that bring out the “girly” in me that I’d thought I’d share.

Blueberries in anything is great in my book. I’ve never picked blueberries in the Spring, but imagine it’s great and I’d love to do it so I can have endless amounts to bake with or put on my Trader Joe’s cereal. Since they’re in season this time of year I also love them because they make me feel more eco friendly, I’m always trying to do my part;)

I bought this Maxi dress(on Piperlime.com) in the hopes of it making me feel like I can wear a trend and not feel frumpy or that I’m trying too hard. It worked I love it;) I’m not usually into trends and wear what looks good on me and is comfortable. I’ve wanted a Maxi dress for a couple of years now, but could never bring myself to pay over $50 for one. I would go to Forever 21 and look for a cheap one only to realize that I’m not a junior size and nothing in that store should be worn by a pear shaped almost 30 something.(if you wear Forever 21 please don’t be offended, this is my opinion for myself)

I paid more than I normally would, but it’s one of those purchases that I budgeted for so it’s all good. I love how it looks but haven’t worn it besides trying it on, but I’ll post a pic once I do.

I love buying flowers at the farmers market or little boutique flower shops every now and then to brighten up the house. I bought a few bouquets at Trader Joe’s the other day and arranged them all over the loft. It’s an easy way to bring light into the house and I just love the colors.

I do have to make sure a certain someone doesn’t try to eat them so they can last longer, but the occasional flower does end up missing lots of petals.

I’m also loving bangs(see above pic). I’ve had bangs before and ¬†would be annoyed anytime I went on a run, but now that I have a sweaty band I don’t have to worry¬†about having a bobby pin come undone.

What are some of your Spring favorites, or just something your loving now?

Cute dress – very fun! I need to go shopping for something fun and springy, I haven’t done that in a while. My favorite part of this time of year is the veggies – so awesome & fresh!

I really want to invest in a maxi dress for this Spring/Summer! I really like the look of them!
