If you had told me, one year ago, that at this time next year I’d be waking up in the Swedish countryside to this view, I’d have laughed in your face. Yet, here I am. As with almost everything in my life, this situation is only temporary (we are going to try to eventually buy an apartment in Uppsala), but I can’t tell you how excited I am to spend spring and summer here. Swimming […]

spring / to do

Is declaring a to-do list for the spring season on Feb 27 a bit premature? Probably, but the sun is shining and the sky is blue and all I can think about is SPRING. Fresh, bright, shiny spring. I’m looking so forward to longer days, warmer temps, and, just recently, the option of whether or not to wear a top at all! #freethenipple  While I doubt I’ll be ditching my tops altogether any time soon, […]

a little off-the-shoulder romance

I’m having a little love affair… That is, with a clothing item. Just to be clear. You may remember this top from my Valentine’s Day beauty post, and I’m happy to say I’m just as in love with it now as I was then. This black top is my new favorite item in my closet. The off-the-shoulder look is everywhere right now, and even though I am sometimes a little self-conscious of my broad shoulders (thanks, […]

An outfit post! At long last ☺ Temps are rising, and I am more than ready! I got to bust this little number out for a casual date night, and, let me tell ya, it felt SO GOOD to put something on and just go, without the usual gloves-hat-socks-boots-etc. routine. This dress is a cheapie from Old Navy (which is currently having a huge spring sale) and I love how simple and feminine it feels.  […]

Glimpses of spring have been peeking out, and it feels amazing. As I outlined in my spring edit post, leopard flats are going to be a staple for me this season, and these beauties from Target ($6.00 on sale!!!) have already been in heavy rotation. Paired with a striped button-down shirt, black skinnies, and a little half-tuck action, they make for a super simple (but not boring) work outfit. This is also my latest hair […]

Spring is my favorite month, fashion-wise. After all, it’s not too hot, all you need is a light jacket! <== name that movie!But seriously, it’s so much easier to look put-together when you’re a) not freezing to death or b) sweating buckets because it’s so hot. It’s the perfect in-between weather. My spring essentials are not that different from my year-round essentials (leather jacket, big tote bag, boots, etc.), but the spring edit includes some […]

spring

March 1 marks the beginning of spring in my books. I know that, being in Colorado, we might still get snow in May (please, God, no), but I’m trying to be optimistic. I think Fort Collins is getting on board, too, with restaurants opening their patios, the sun staying out until 6:30 pm, and cyclists doubling in population. Below is a list of things I want to do this spring, to keep me productive and […]
