Denim in the Springtime

dress- Orchid Grey’s blog shop, necklace- Kitty Cait’s etsy shop, flats and cardigan- forever 21

It has been a busy two weeks for me friends!  I have yet to upload my pictures from spring break, but as I was going through them I realized I was a very poor blogger in terms of documenting my travels!  Not only did I not take any pictures while I was in San Francisco/Bay Area, I also didn’t take any outfit pictures!  I guess I was just having so much fun that it just slipped my mind! :D  However, the weather was gorgeous the day before I left home to go back to school, so I convinced my sister to take a few pictures so that I would have at least one outfit post from spring break.

Thanks to my sis Nikki for taking these pictures!

When I purchased this dress from Julie’s blog shop, I definitely had spring on the mind!  I bought it right before spring break and I couldn’t wait to where it exactly like I’ve done here- with bare legs!  I think this dress is really versatile though and I can’t wait to style it up a bunch of different ways.

Also, you may have noticed that things look different around here- that’s because I changed about the layout again!  I needed to bring some color, something lighter to the page.  And I’ve added easy navigation buttons to the top of the page, as well as an about me page.  I would love to hear what you guys think! =)

Hope everyone has a marvelous Sunday!

    That's the epitome of a springtime look! I have to say, my favorite pic is the one of you smiling big!! You have THE greatest smile, for real! You look so easy-breezy and happy with yourself there. Love it.

    And I really dig the new layout too. Very "friendly" looking.

    Tshe weather looks lovely where you are, and the dress looks great on you – so perfect for spring. Yeap, I'm also often finding it difficult to take pictures when I'm travelling – too much going on… Hope you had a great time in SF.
