Spring has Sprung

Spring may be peeking it’s head out here in portland. Granted the second official day of spring it snowed 2 inches overnight. BUT today was cloudy, but lovely and for the most part dry! The weather forecast for the weekend is coldish but dry! (Hurray for bike riding weather) So my mind turns to spring and some lovely things that I can add to my wardrobe for the coming season. Forgive me I seem to have Orange on the brain lately… it may have something to do with the lovely lady hiding in this box.

First off i needed a new coat. After much deliberation on color I settled on this lovely number from J Crew.

I am in desperate need of some new pants. I am quickly shrinking out of all of my old ones. I love red cropped pants! They are a quick way to make pants and a t-shrit look chic.


This tunic is adorable. I saw the lovely Cailvintage wearing it the other day as a dress. This is defiantly on my must get list. Even if it is too short to wear as a dress.




I am always baffled by how hard it is to find lovely spring dresses with long sleeves. In the fall there are all kinds of them. But spring is also a great time to wear longer sleeves. This yellow dress would be great for biking.



Now I have been thinking a lot about what lovely purses I will casually swing as I skip down the street. I LOVE Orla Kiely. The bag I bought last summer has held up lovely. I am thinking this may need to become part of my collection.

It is also time to get out my Favorite lip product of all time! I seriously love this stuff. I have it in all of the colors they made (two in this poppy color). Unfortunately they have discontinued it, That is totally too bad. It made your lips oh so soft,  the color packed a punch and stayed for hours.


And in honor of my love of pantone, and the chicness of orange lips.  This lovely lipstick is defiantly going home with me ASAP! In fact I may just get the whole collection for this year and make this my go to summer look!


let’s have one more peek at the lovely lady who inspired such a bright and lovely spring time mindset! I will have a full reveal of her over the weekend. As soon as I can get some cute pictures of me and her riding around!
