a pretty gingham dress.

Gingham Dress.(runs small!) White Top. Cardigan Sweater. Cage bag. (similar option here.) Shoes. Sunglasses.

Want to know something?  I’ve secretly wished I would grow up to be just like Juliette Binoche in “Chocolat” whipping up delightful confections, and looking flawlessly  feminine whilst doing it, pretty much since the movie came out when I was a teenager.  In reality, I toast marshmallows over my gas burner for my kids after dinner and call the resulting smores “making dessert.”

One of my favorite things to do in the spring is to go outside and read.  I’ve loved doing this since I was a kid when I would throw blanket and a book in my backpack and ride my bike to the park to read for the afternoon.  Now that we live on a farm, and I have the added convenience of a park like backyard it’s quickly becoming my favorite activity for a casual off-duty Saturday.  Nothing relaxes like a little sunshine, a cool breeze, the sound of birds chirping, and getting lost in a good book.

spring basics with Nordstrom.

shirt. (comes in 3 colors.) similar jeans. jacket. shoes.(come in a bunch of colors) bag. sunglasses. Necklace. Lipstick (color:SNOB)

I don’t know why, but I am always drawn to white tops, especially this time of year.  Spring is all about warm afternoons and cool evenings, so light layers are key.   I love starting with a great pair of jeans and flats then adding a simple top that has a little feminine detail, like the bow on this top I’m wearing, or ruffle sleeves.  When it gets cooler later in the day, a light jacket is perfect.  This blush bomber is so soft and lightweight, it’s perfect for this season.  (Plus blush is so huge right now.)
