ring in spring

Spring may seem like an unlikely choice when choosing your favorite season – but it is mine! April is when I celebrate my birthday (month of the diamond – holler!), but I am also a fan of the typically rainy month because springtime brings so many things to life that we wait all winter for … like green anything and that glimmer of hope that snow might actually be gone for good! I don’t have much to complain about since we had a mild winter here in Minneapolis – but I will still enjoy the first smells of fresh cut grass and wet rain. Come on sunshine!

The new season brings an outstanding excuse to pick up a few new things – whether it be allergy medicine or a new hair color, everyone can think of a few items they need to help ring in spring. Maybe one or two of these will top your list this April:

  1. Tall Hunter Rain Boots in Yellow: Can you really buy a rain boot in any color other than classic yellow? No. These classic beauties ($125) make rain fashionable and puddle splashing more fun.
  2. SpaRitual Nail Lacquer Water Collection (Spring 2012): This vegan nail polish (yes – it’s actually good for your nails) comes in 6 new spring colors – and as a bonus 20% of all proceeds made from the Water Collection goes to Surge. Why not pick up a few new pastels (available at JUUT)?
  3. Paige Denim in Day Break: I’d take a pair of these in any color but with a push of spring tones coming our way, why not go all our and splurge on a pair of pretty pastel paige denim ($179)?
  4.  Whole Foods Lemon Italian Sparkling Spring Water: If your looking for a bubbly beverage to quench your thirst, Whole Foods sparkling spring water is the way to go. Lemon not your thing? It comes in a variety of other flavors!

skinny dipped with a splash of blue


If I was lucky enough to make the rules, my skin would maintain a darker shade than snow white as the warm weather flies south and any hint of tan I obtained over this wild summer leaves me entirely. Regardless of the well known fact that darker skin tones wear these neutral colors best, I’m obsessed and plan to do what I can to incorporate this lovely palette deep into my fall closet. Adding the blue might make it a bit lot more bearable to check me out as I walk down the street entirely dressed in my skin tone.

For more of my random inspiration for life and style, follow me on pinterest. Or try tumblr. I say both.
