:: Bring on Spring ::

This happens every year. One really lovely, warm Spring day and I’m immediately coming up with a zillion various cold weather outfits that I could kick myself for not thinking of during the winter. Inspiration comes at the strangest times!

While springing forward really throws off my days, I was so excited to come home to an evening of sunshine. After spending my days indoors, it’s so refreshing to walk outside to the surprising warmth of a true March day. Here’s to dresses and the promise of Spring.

:: Kaleidoscope ::

Remember the Peter Pilotto for Target debacle from a few weeks ago? I had my eye on this dress from the get go, and even girlfriend who was shopping for her daughter couldn’t beat me to it! With a dozen weddings and showers in the coming year, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot of this little gem. The cool tones with bright pops of neon make it so flexible in terms of weather. Adding a long sleeve top with tights and booties, or a collared shirt, will take it into the winter seasons. Throwing on a different belt and matching various colors and patterns of heels will keep it rocking through summer.

Did you ever look through kaleidoscopes as a kid? This dress reminds me so much of the magical, transforming shapes swimming at the end of the mirrored tunnel. I did a quick Wikipedia search of kaleidoscopes (because I spent four years in the journalism college being told not to do so), and learned all about the history of these gorgeous, greek-invented objects. Do yourself a favor and take a look here. Only, of course, after you take a look below!
