Dreaming of Spring Must-Haves

Posted on: February 19, 2013

Well, I got all ready to go to my hair appointment this morning(Monday) , but never made it there, so had to reschedule.  Nothing major just car trouble that turned out to be the battery which was under warranty, so easy fix!

IMG_2190Rescheduling an appointment with my busy stylist who is always booked is not easy, but I got lucky that he fit me in for Friday.  Well, at least it is before my trip, which I am leaving for on Sunday morning!  I was so ready for that appointment and feeling let down all day…


I wore the hat and sweater for warmth as it is a cold day,but am happily surprised that I like the look… Yesterday’s dress look received a lot of feedback about having a bohemian vibe and I think that this outfit does too.  I never thought of my style as bohemian, but have been learning over the past few months of blogging that indeed I do have days when that fits me.


I really like the femininity of the ruffle at the bottom of this sweater.  Did you know that ruffles are going to be a big trend for Spring.  It was among  the top 10 Must -Haves for Spring  in March People Sytlewatch  Magazine. 

Here’s the Entire List…

1. Black & White

2.  Printed Sheath Dresses

3.  Boxy Bags (square shaped purses)

4.  Pointy Flats

5.  Ruffles 

6.  Silver(in clothing & accessories)

7.  Chunky Heels

8.  Baseball Jackets

9.  Weathered Metals (in jewelry)

10.  Sheers 

Dear Readers,  Which things on this list appeal to you?  My favorites are Sheers, Pointy Flats, Ruffles and Black & White.   Any that you really don’t like?  I would have to say Chunky Heels aren’t my favorite, although I’ve owned them in the past, so may change my mind…

Gratitude:  I am grateful that my stylist was able to schedule me before I have to leave on my vacation….I am grateful that my exercizing to tone is showing results (my abs have never had this kind of definition).  I am grateful for the nap I took , as some days you just need a good nap!

The baseball jackets would probably be the only thing on the list that doesn’t appeal to me. It’s funny after blogging for awhile you kind of start to see a pattern and your style, even though you might not realize it right away. I am so loving your hat! You look great in hats. Heather

I actually was feeling the same about the baseball jackets until I hit the mall this past weekend and saw some that were an all over cute print like one in all black satin material with print of white bows. . The ones that were more traditional were more masculine and not my thing.

I can’t do a sheath dress unless it’s very low cut because it gives me uniboob ;-P. I’ve got to be very careful with the ruffles, too. The rest of the list looks terrific!

Yes, anyone with larger chests need to have an open neckline and so many sheath dresses are missing this..
The ruffles they were showing on everything from just the bottom of a shirt, skirt or dress, so that may work for you?

I’m open to the idea of ruffles at the hem of a skirt or dress. If I find one that fits that description I’ll try it on and see how it looks.

good luck, hope it works for you!

Could you share where you got your sweater? I love it..:)
I’ve been lurking for a while now and i love your style.

Thank you! I bought this sweater at Burlington Coat Factory and unfortunately did not see any others like it…
