April Showers

…better bring some amazingly pretty May flowers!!!

Hi, all! Like my umbrella today? Since I’m wearing a lavender ensemble, I thought I’d stick with the color palette and what not. 😉

It’s an interesting rain today, that’s for sure. It’s warm outside, which is great because I’m only a fan of warm rain, but consequently, it’s rather humid. Oh well; I’ll take it!

This umbrella is pretty cool, isn’t it? I bought it at H&M sometime last year. Love the roses.

I get so caught up in flower headbands, that I sometimes neglect my simple black velvet bow headband. It’s subtle, yet still adds a cute touch!!! Also, a matching black velvet choker.

My little pin is back! I showcased it in a previous blog post, and this sassy lady is back to attack. Attack oncoming passersby with her unabashedly quirky fashion sense, that is…

I got this pin from The Tote Trove, and she sells the cutest items ever! ❤ I love this pin especially, because it’s just so cute and a nice conversation starter. The colors went well with my skirt today, so it all came together perfectly.

I know, I know…another new pair of shoes from B.A.I.T. footwear! My other matching pair is off-white, and now I have them in black. I just can’t get over the cuteness and the old fashion vibes these shoes have! ❤

I thought I would include a close-up of my makeup today, which I’m totally loving! Keeping with the purple look, I used a mix of silver with purple, and black in the crease. I don’t even know where the eyeshadow palette is from because it was a Christmas gift, but it’s awesome!

So, our front door and the screen door finally got painted white! I can’t get over how much I love the new look of the house. It looks so happy and cute, and I love walking through the front door!

The fence still needs to be painted white, but that will happen soon. 🙂

Hope you enjoyed reading! See ya!

 

 

Sweet as Pastel Mints

My outfit color palette today totally reminds me of those little pastel mint candies!!! Pink and green? Yes, please!

My friend and I decided to take a short day trip to Casa de Fruta, which is a cute tourist spot filled with yummy fruits, candies, ice cream, coffee, etc. It’s a picturesque little place, to boot!

These little fruit bars are amaaaaazing. They’re mashed up fruits with coconut and sugar mixed in it! ❤

Funny how I said in my last blog post about being excited for the blossom trees to bloom. Spring has definitely sprung in these mountains! There were so many blossoms everywhere…it was like walking through a dream…

It was a lovely day! Nothing recharges me more than wandering around outside on a warm, sunny day. I haven’t been out of town in awhile, so it was a nice little break from the everyday norm.

Enjoy the weekend! See you next time. ❤

Coral is My New Obsession

That’s not my front door, by the way. I wish it was, though!

I’ve been noticing the color coral frequently popping up in my wardrobe! It’s super springy and pretty, so I can’t get enough of it. I bought a flowy top from Forever 21 yesterday, and it paired well with a coral skirt I already had (also from Forever 21).

The different coral hues really paired well and created an ultra feminine outfit!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday!

 

 

 

Spring!

IMG_5551

Spring is finally here, and what better way to enjoy it than by being outdoors? I did just that a couple of days ago – took a long walk, sipped an iced beverage, and then sketched while sitting on a park bench. Doesn’t get any better than that! This is seriously one of my favorite times of the year. So long winter – hello warm weather. 🙂

I took my sketchbook with me and drew a flower…I prefer focusing on up-close, individual still life objects rather than a full-scale drawing. I think because I love paying attention to detail and capturing shadows and highlights, and essentially just drawing exactly what I see.

I hope to fill up this handy little sketchbook with colorful sketches like this one. I get in this peaceful frame of mind whenever I submerge myself in drawing, and I love it.

Spring, in my opinion, is a time for personal and spiritual growth that coincides with the changing of seasons. I feel like my mood really lifts at this time of year and I have an extra spring in my step, and my creativity flows easier. I hope you all are able to feel this way as well, and happiness flows with ease into your life!

Happy Wednesday!

 

Beautiful Spring

With the warm weather and sunny skies today, I really wanted to capture the beauty of spring that’s all around us. 🙂

There’s nothing like spending time outdoors and enjoying the sunshine and warmth on one’s skin.

I really love the dress I’m wearing today! It has an old fashion, prairie-like vibe to it.

Hope everyone is having a lovely Tuesday, wherever you are! 🙂
