It’s not a good sign when it’s only January and I am already craving all things Spring.  And so today I thought I would share some pretty cool transitional pieces perfect for now and later.  Happy Thursday!

Making Me Blush

I love the color blush. It really is the perfect neutral. And while I usually find myself preferring to rough it up a bit by pairing it back to more military inspired ensembles, sometimes I just can’t help but want to feel ultra girly and style my blush back to something sweet-maybe like a little lace peplum…

Polka Dots!

I’ve had a thing for polka dots for as long as I can remember. And so, of course, I couldn’t be happier that they are all the rage this season. In fact, as I am writing this post, I am even wearing a pair of polka dot pants.  And if that isn’t a declaration of my love for them, then I don’t know what it is. I mean really, polka dots pants? Shut the front door. So if you follow this blog, consider yourself warned-polka dots are going to be a common occurrence this fall. I just hope you like them as much as I do!20120925-174937.jpg

Confession time.  I did something in this post that I can’t remember the last time I did…I tucked in my shirt!  Lol.  With the popularity of skinnies and tunics, I guess the practice of tucking shirts went by the wayside for me a long time ago (well with the exception of tucking shirts into skirts, that I do all the time).  And while I have to say that at first it felt fairly foreign to show my entire zipper and a belt, now that the initial shock has worn off, I actually really like the look.  And since the trend is moving in this direction, I guess that is a good thing!
