It snowed all day yesterday and last night. It actually still might be snowing right now. Boo. What’s up with the snow, Mother Nature?
It’s actually kind of funny because, just the other day, Mal and I agreed it seemed like something had changed with the weather and maybe Spring was upon us.
I guess we were wrong.
Really wrong. Whomp whomp.
Yesterday afternoon, I literally had to push Murphy out the front door into the snow to do his business.
He was not a fan.
He quickly did his thing and ran immediately back to the house…
…where he did the “pug breakdance” to get all of the snow off himself.
Even though the weather outside is frightful, I can’t help but think about warm weather, sunshine, margaritas (who said that?), and fun spring clothes.
As you probably know/have observed from reading CNC, I have the worst sense of style. I’m totally happy wearing workout clothes with sneakers or jeans and a t-shirt with flip flops, and I honestly have no idea how to dress myself. Obviously, this is somewhat problematic since I attend all sorts of nice events for CNC and need to look put together… oh, and my husband likes to see me in something other than my sweats every once in awhile.
Recently, I started a Pinterest board, appropriately named “I Can’t Dress Myself,” to help inspire me/teach me how to dress more fashionably. I actually have a lot of nice clothes in my closet; I just can’t figure out how to wear them together. I dunno, I guess they don’t make sense in my closet.
But, after creating this Pinterest board, I realized I already own quite a few pieces to make the outfits that I pinned, but I’m missing a few key things to pull the looks together. Instead of buying random pieces and hoping for the best (like I usually do), I decided to focus on specific items that I want to add to my wardrobe this Spring. On my list…
How fun is this outfit?! I actually have a lot of striped and plain tops, so some brightly colored shorts (and, ok, some funky jewelry too) would definitely spice things up. I’m pretty casual with my style, so I could easily get away with wearing flip flops or other flats with an outfit like this. Maybe I should buy a colorful cardigan too? I love this look in a major way.
Oh, how I love stripes. I actually own quite a few striped shirts, but I want to add a black and white top to my wardrobe to wear with my brightly-colored shorts (and jeans). It’s classic, but fun at the same time.
Casual white tees
A casual white tee is such a simple addition to my wardrobe. I’m sure I could find them cheap too. Target or H&M perhaps? I just need to add a fun scarf or jewelry to jazz it up. Easy style. Love it.
I love the look below. It seems like such effortless style. Like I mentioned, I have tons of plain tank tops, so I just need a fun/patterned/floral skirt to go with them. This would be a great outfit for a blog event or date night with Mal.
