Spring Wishlist

The temperature is rising, and with the emergence of the snow drops in my front yard and the azaleas in the back, it really seems like spring is here or at the very least on it’s way. This time of year always leads to a general lightening of life for me, everything from clothing, to hair color, to mood. Heck, I even wear less make up: some tinted moisturizer (with SPF of course), a swipe of highlighter, and a natural lip color, and I am good to go, which, in hindsight, is probably good considering Florida’s weather is notoriously fickle and at least once a week I’ll find myself stuck somewhere without an umbrella because of unexpected rain. I love it though, it’s such a brief season here, and it leaves me lamenting my hours spent at the office instead of enjoying the rare glorious weather. When I lived on campus while I was in college, I’d load up my tote bag with books and water and then spend the afternoon stretched out on the green in front of the library.

My mom is here visiting for a couple of weeks so I am hoping that she and I will get a chance to do some spring-ish type activities. Things like walking around some of the local parks, eating lunch outside, and maybe even doing a little gardening. What are you looking forward to this spring?


Black Shirt Wishlist

I wear a lot of black. It’s slimming, it’s difficult to stain, and it goes with pretty much everything. Over the past year or so I have pushed myself to incorporate more color in my day to day wardrobe, but for all the progress made, I am still very much a black shirt kind of girl. Now that the weather is getting a bit cooler, I am making the important transition from tank tops & spaghetti straps into something that can be layered or has a bit more fabric to it. Granted, not much, this is Florida after all, but just a smidgen. Embracing my curviness I have been focusing more on sites that are specifically for plus size women or women who straddle the line between standard and plus. Here are three of my top picks from three of the top stores I am considering purchasing my next few wardrobe additions from.

My absolute favorite is the one in the center. I look great in wrap tops, and the added drama of that long bow is fantastic. There are already so many items in my closet that I could wear it with. My anniversary and Christmas are right around the corner, so if I don’t pick it up for myself, there is the possibility that someone else might 😉
