Oh my gosh!! So sorry to have left you for so long! I took a little trip to Portland, OR for a signing at a lovely “Curly Girl Outfitter” (details to follow) and took a day or two for some much needed R&R.
You know when you have been going and going and going and then you finally stop to regroup and give yourself a break, the getting back to the pace that you were going and going at is really hard?!! That along with the time change and I am peeling myself out of bed in the mornings! Oh how I miss Portland's coffee now! Ah well. The reinforcements have arrived! My mom is here to help me get big Marmalade ready, even though it is her spring break from school and she should be sipping margaritas on a beach somewhere. Thanks Mom!!
So, While I was out I got to do a little poking around in boutiques, and what better time to freshen up a wardrobe than spring! By now I all but shudder at the thought of the same sweaters and tights I have been wearing for months and the thought of something a little lighter makes my heart skip a little.
I always love floral prints, but am pretty selective about them. I am loving this year's crop of muted florals. Kind of a modern prairie look that keeps things looking sweet. I like my florals on the smaller side, which makes them easy to pair with other patterns or stand-by solids or tweeds in spring. A great pair of boots is still essential in spring, but for me is becoming a year-round affair. And it's nice to finally pull out the flats!
