Spring Fever

Anybody else here ready for this miserable winter to be over?  Fall is always sort of exciting at the beginning because you get to start wearing cute sweaters, boots and scarves, but winter is just plain miserable (in my opinion).  By mid-February,  I’m just longing for a little sunshine.  And flowers.   And sundresses.  And sandals.  Ok really, the list goes on and on…
 
I’m heading to Destin, Florida to visit my boyfriend for the long weekend, and I really hope it’s warm and sunny!  It likely won’t be warm enough for shorts, and definitely not warm enough for a swimsuit, but a girl can dream.   In the mean time, as the snow continues to pile up outside my window, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite warm weather items that have me anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring.  I sure hope the groundhog was wrong and that it’s coming sooner rather than later!  Until then, I’ll longingly eye my spring clothes and wait impatiently.  What warm weather items are you coveting right now?

1. This bow tie bracelet from Kiel James Patrick is so preppy and fun!
2. Lilly Pulitzer dress.  Colorful yet simple.
3. Striped dress from Topshop. 
4. Jean shorts from J. Crew.  I have the light version from a few years ago, but I’d love this darker pair.
5. Nude cut-out loafers from Tory Burch.  I have a similar pair from River Island that I bought in Oxford, England and they are by far my favorite pair of shoes that I own.  I wear them with shorts, jeans, dresses…pretty much everything.  Wouldn’t mind upgrading to this pair though!
6. Polka dot swimsuit from J. Crew.  I always wear bikinis, but this one-piece is so adorable that I’d love to be wearing it on a beach right now.  Preferably with a cocktail in hand.
