The garden house

If spring isn't coming to Michigan, I'll just bring myself to spring! Brett and I headed over to our local garden house to take some photos. It was the first time I had been to this one and it was so cute! I loved their little greenhouse and shop. I'm so ready to see flowers outside... I just can't wait another day! It is supposed to be super nice this weekend, but major thunderstorms... but I'm excited. I love April showers!

I just wore these shorts from ModCloth in my last post, but they went so well with this outfit that I had to wear them again! The little coral flowers fit perfectly with the rest of the outfit. Coral is so perfect for spring. I'm loving this trend. Typically I don't levitate toward too many "trends" but coral and florals are so big this year and are two things I really do love! I just purchased this coral nail polish too - it's perfect. It's called Kook-a-Mango from Sally Hansen. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is the only nail polish I'll buy any more. Perfect colors, really great quality and I love the bottle it comes in!

This cardigan from Lee & Birch is going around to each of the girls in the Delightful Dozen, so you'll get to see it styled a few different ways! I'm excited to see the other girls style it up. It's always fun to see how each of our personalities shine through in different pieces. If you haven't been keeping up with our blog yet, you should! We have posts going up every weekday from different members and reader spotlights!

I'm loving the Garren shoes I just received from Blowfish Shoes. The cork is so cute and the color matches with so many of my outfits. Plus, they are very easy to walk in. I can spend an entire day walking in these and my feet feel great. I'm so excited to wear these more this summer. I really want to try these next with a cute maxi dress and circle sunnies!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes! I see those thigh muscles poking out from all that running! ha! The coral color looks great on you, especially with that little bit of lip color.

    Just reading about maxi dress and sunnies is really making me wish the warm weather hurry up and get here. I can't wait for simpler outfits, less layers, and more time in the sun!
