Hooray! Spring has at last sprung! The green leaves are budding on the trees, the tulips and daffodils are in full color, and the 70˚ weather has begun to warm our chilled souls after Winter’s cold bout. It’s funny to think that I will soon have to switch out my A/W wardrobe for my summer frocks, shirts and skirts… which my lack of is much more prevalent as the days grow nearer to May and June. Doubtless I will be taking several trips to Goodwill, and browse the “shelves” of my favorite online fabric shops for new clothes to replace those that I have outgrown, or worn out.
I must say that in all this romantic anticipation of Summer and sunshine (and how can I forget the GREEN trees!), reality has begun to hit. The weeds have reeled their annoying heads in our garden and flower beds, the lack of available time & funds for me to supply myself with the clothing needs my closet aches for, and overall stress of our current situation in life have been taking their toll on me. Oh what a blessing is the sunshine… until it gets too hot, eh?

I am quite excited to once again be featuring the impeccable Garlands of Grace on the blog today! I was sent this gorgeous head wrap from Suzanne’s Liberty Collection (mine is Blue Betsy), to style for you all; and oh how perfectly style-able it is! The vibrant colors, delicate, feminine print, and versatile design make this accessory a frequent go-to when putting together my Spring outfits. It combines the need for both a hair bauble and earrings in one because of the intricate, colorful print; while giving the wearer countless options for accessorizing elsewhere with it’s diverse color palette. And how could I ever pass up a print done by Liberty of London? I swoon dead away anytime my eye catches one of their luscious designs; so the fact that Garlands of Grace decided to utilize those gorgeous fabrics in their already lovely products gets me giddy 🙂
The thoughtful, delicate packaging of GoG always makes me so excited to receive one of their products! From the whimsical stamping on the brown paper envelope, to the little seed paper sent in perfect season for planting time. So many little joys bound up with your new accessory! It’s really a privilege to be able to partner up with this delightful company.
They recently put together this video on how to creatively wear their Stretch Cecily style to it’s fullest extent. So many looks which can be fashioned with two fashionable products! Definitely give this little film a watch!
I had to include these little snaps that Brigi captured yesterday while we were taking pictures 🙂 While I was posing for the camera, a shape of white drifted down in front of me, and what did I behold, but Jessica’s pet pigeon, Sensation! He has been befriending our family as his “flock” in the past few months, and it’s simply adorable how he comes when we call him.
How has the new Season been affecting your life lately?
