For some reason it took me forever to get this post out. I sat down at my computer and started to look through the photos, which was a hard task because I loved so many of them that I couldn’t just chose a couple (sorry for the overload!), but then got side tracked on to a trillion different things. The internet always tricks me into getting temporary ADD. Actually, it’s more like Pinterest. If I go on there, you will lose me for hours.. But it’s not a waste when it’s brings you inspiration and happiness?

Last weekend Char and I went for a little picnic and it was like a dream. I am obsessed with all the blue, which I didn’t even realize would be quite so much before we went (I am not THAT organized).. I mean even the fruit is blue! I can’t complain though. Cool colors are just so cool ;) (wow creative….) I was also super pumped to use this little tote because, if you know me, you know two of my favorite things in this world are flowers and champs. The best ever.

And while we were there Nelly literally attracted like every dog  in the park. I don’t blame them because she is so cute, but she is not very keen on other dogs. She is more of a people dog :) And I went to grab her as one was running over and totally spilled a glass of water all over myself (because I am so graceful….) So half of these photos are taken with a totally wet bottom half. The whole day made me very happy though so maybe I should wet my pants more often..

Growing up I always had a school uniform. First it was maroon plaid and a boys tie and vest, then it turned to polo shirts and more plaid (but this time the skirts were shorter/we rolled them.. a lot). I loved having a uniform because it meant I could roll out of bed thirty minutes before I needed to get to school and not have to worry about what to wear, but it also meant that I didn’t ever really have time to play around with different styles and learn what I really liked. And even though I am long past my days in plaid, I think I am still just a mishmash of different styles and eras that I love and want to emulate. And I don’t mind it :)

This look is so classic with the black and white and button down shirt (another staple of my uniform). I also love midi skirts. This one is actually a dress that I layered over, which is great for these spring days that I am ever so (not) subtly praying for.. And PS – this braid is such a showstopper.
