UO trucker jacket // F21 tank top // UO skirt // F21 sandals // F21 necklace // F21 rings

So it's Austin Kite Festival time, eh? Mid-70s, no clouds in sight, birds a chirpin'? I'm on it! Nothing screams Spring and 'Professional Kite Flyer' like neon yellow mixed with florals. And while I'm at it, channeling my inner early-90s badass self. Def looks like something my sister and I wore back in the day! Oh, Fashion. Funny how it recycles itself every decade or two!

neon yellow + neon pink.

neon yellow + neon pink.
Spring's fun. It makes you fall in love with polka dots + stripes, dream in neon yellows + neon pinks, kiss little puppies + ride a unicorn. Everything's so fresh and vivid and in bloom! It's really infectious, this Spring thing. Especially in Texas. Where Spring is actually pretty awesome and the blue skies are surreal and the sunny days are constant and the dreamy weather feels like you're in Cali. Yah, March in Texas ain't too shabby! Keep it comin', Mother Nature!

UO blazer // F21 shirt // UO jean shorts // Gap stockings // F21 boots // F21 scarf // Target necklace.

Would you believe me if I said I've had those jean shorts + blue blazer for 3 years?  And that I've worn them a bajillion times since day 1? That's right! The boots, stockings and necklace were acquired over Fall 2012. The shirt - just last month. And thus far, all pieces have been in heavy rotation during this pseudo winter-spring season we've been having. Wardrobe remix, ftw!

On a side note, there's something about this outfit that makes me miss traveling full-time. Or just traveling, in general. 'Cause I could totally see myself zipping through Europe with this ensemble on! Wow. Imagine that. A whole outfit inspiring a ... Eurotrip! Must be a sign from the travel gods! Wait til I tell my husband when he gets home.

F21 denim shirt, UO skirt, UO stockings, UO heels, F21 necklace.

Just something I wore for a Valentine's lunch date with the hubster. Albeit, it was spent at home over a home-cooked meal. (Hey, who doesn't dress up for that?) But I was determined to wear this ensemble out and so I waited and waited til dinner time rolled around. 7:30p. Boba at Coco's Cafe. Dinner at Ramen Tatsu-yaDrive-In Movie Theater to cap off the evening. You bet I was ready. What I wasn't ready for was the drastic drop in temperature once the sun disappeared. Accompanied by a nice breeze. All courtesy of Mother Nature. I guess she didn't get the memo that it was Valentine's day, 'cause otherwise I wouldn't have made that quick outfit change into something warmer! Yo Mother Nature, let's get it right next year, yah?

F21 plaid flannel shirt, American Apparel gray v-neck shirt, UO high-waisted shorts, F21 glasses, UO necklace. Ikea green couch, Ikea b+w pillow, Etsy camera pillow, Dwell Studio for Target yellow pillow. 

Nothing like crafting up Christmas cards in uber comfy Spring/Summer-ish attire! Quite the oxymoron, I know. But that's Texas in December for ya! And who crafts with red lips? This gal. Sometimes just for the heck of it, sometimes when I'm in the creative, daydreamy mood. There's just something about red lips that inspires and sparks and excites life while creating. Whether it be crafting or cooking.

Anything. So with red lips, homemade Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites (to be blogged soon), London Fog tea elixir and my inspiration journal - I dove headfirst into a quite ambitious DIY Christmas card project. Also to be blogged soon.

If things turn out successful. Wish me luck, crafting homies!
