Mint and Leopard

Snows gone. Suns out. And I am smiling! We were graced with some gorgeous weather today so it felt right to break out my favorite spring color -- mint! These beauties are courtesy of Lauren Conrad's Kohl's line and although I bought them last spring I have seen them pop up again recently. My favorite part of my outfit today? My new Lauren Conrad spiked bracelet and bow ring! (noticing a trend, here?) How adorable are they?  One word -- obsessed.

Green & Polka Dots

Polka dots, polka dots, polka dots, am I the only one who just can't seem to get enough? I paired some classic black and white polka dots with a bright emerald green cardigan and perfectly matching necklace. Rewind about a year and I don't think I owned any jewel toned clothing and now emerald green tops my list as one of my favorite accent colors. I'm actually quite excited to transition this color into my spring wardrobe this year. Nautical navy and white strips with emerald green -- my kind of spring outfit! 

As you can see these pictures were taken pre-snow, we are still trying to keep warm here on the East Coast. Florida and Cali readers -- please send some of your sunshine and palm trees my way. I'm itching for some warm weather! 

Polka dot sweater -- $19.95, Forever 21. | Green Cardigan -- $19.99 , Old Navy. | Nude Skinnies -- $34.99, Old Navy. | Green Necklace -- $24.99,  Francescas. | Steve Madden black flats -- $40.00, DSW.

Winter Maxi

Come summer time I love throwing on a cami and flowy maxi for a day of running errands. Today, we were graced with some 50 degree sunny weather so it felt fitting to pull out my summer maxi but this time pair it with a long sleeve top and infinity scarf. A side knot adds a little detail to the long a-lined skirt -- and looks quite adorable if you ask me!

A Pop of Coral

I think seasonal depression has officially set in this year! Cold, gloomy, rainy, and it seems to be dark as soon as I get home from work. When you're a beach dwelling, warm weather lover like myself this weather makes you wanna cuddle up and sleep. This girl is ready for some bright colors and flip flops. What better way to get myself out of this yucky wintery rut then to bring some summer to my winter wardrobe! This coral (which seems to be photographing more orange) cardigan was the perfect splash of color for this, otherwise, neutral ensemble. Want to know something else fun about this outfit? Everything but the necklace and boots are fun Old Navy!

Plaid Shirt --Old Navy. | Coral Cardigan -- Old Navy. | Dark Washed Skinnies -- Old Navy. | Cognac Belt -- Old Navy. | Cognac Boots -- $30.00, JC Penny After Christmas Sale. | Gray Necklace -- $32.00, Francescas.
