It’s here! It happens the same day every year, and yet it’s such a day to rejoice when it actually happens! Because on March 20th, we know that even if it’s still snowing, warmth is just around the corner. I like to treat the first day of spring like a holiday. Buy some flowers for the house. Go on a walk in flip flops and no jacket. Maybe start putting sweaters away. Take a look in my bathing suit drawer. Perhaps, go on a casual run/walk to feel like I’m getting in shape for shorts season! You know you do it too!
Spring is just a feeling of rejuvenation. You feel like you’re 10 pounds lighter, even if you gained weight over the winter. You feel more motivated and ready to get your tasks checked off your list. For me, it was just vacuuming! I hadn’t done it since Hazel was born! Annndddd folding three (okay four) loads of laundry. Don’t judge! At least I got them washed.
Everything seemed to blossom in the south about a month early this time. I’m hoping that means our last freeze also took away all the pollen! Wouldn’t that be great? So, we’ve been able to enjoy the beauty of spring without the stickiness for a little while. Around us, there are some beautiful peach orchards, and peach trees have gorgeous blossoms. Because, you know…South Carolina has the best peaches. It’s not Georgia!
They’re almost like miniature cherry blossoms, except without the crowds surrounding them at the Cherry Blossom Festival.
And what better way to invite springtime in than with an off-shoulder ivory dress from Ingrid & Isabel. I love the length of this dress. It’s perfect for any activity (except working out maybe…), and you can throw on flip flops, booties, or wedges for different looks! You can even add a little belt and a hat for a nice style.
I love that it’s an unassuming and demure dress, but is so stylish and still shows a peak of skin. I think that some of women’s best features to highlight are their collar bones and shoulders, and this dress does just that. It’s beautiful. Perfect for pregnant and nursing mamas or for someone who’s looking for the perfect spring dress. Ingrid & Isabel also just released an off the should lace top that’s a similar style to this! That’ll be my next purchase!
