What I Wore (a letter to winter)


Dear Winter,

I am over you.

With the recent development over in Punxsutawney, PA, I've decided that I'm going to welcome spring with open arms.

I realize this probably comes as a complete shock to you, as I long for snow days every year.  But you keep teasing me with flurries one day and then in less than 24 hours, it's sixty degrees!

I just can't take the roller coaster of emotions.

So I bid you farewell.  And am taking full advantage of these temps in the sixties this week by pulling out my spring flats and tops..........

necklace, jeans, shoes, shirt

Yes, breaking out the shorter sleeves might seem premature.  But since the groundhog is calling the shots, it seems, I'm gonna roll with it.

So.  There.

Love (unconditionally),

Danavee

P.S.  If you do decide to show your face around here, I might be persuaded to change my tune.  Just make sure it's worth it!

  1. Lucky! We are ankle deep in snow. We haven't had any snow and now that it's February, it's snowed nearly every day. I am tempted to pull out my short sleeves in hopes Spring will be around the corner. As usual, you look stylish and adorable.

  14. I am with you! It's 65 degrees in Oklahoma today and while I LOVE spring, it just seems ridiculous. I am desperate for a snow day - I need a little break :)

    Oh and I love the lacy top - so cute!

  15. Love that top with those color jeans! Looks great. :) I may have to copycat this in the future.

    I was over winter like a week after it started. Luckily, Austin seems to have decided to have spring already (I actually have flowers coming up!!) so hopefully the rodent was right.

  22. Love this outfit! I am loving the lace trend these days. I am totally over Winter too-for the same reasons. I live in NC and every year I think Winter will swoop in and impress, but it never does.
