The pink trees

This year, spring is coming dangerously close to becoming my new autumn. I would compare what we're going through right now to my Peak of autumn post I did last fall. We're right in the middle of this perfect season. The sunshine, blooming trees, yards filled with pink petals, warm breezes. I'm pretty much in heaven. I love so much dressing to fit my surroundings. I hope I did this setting some justice. It was breathtakingly pretty.

I've had this skirt for a couple of years now. I wore it two springs ago in my post, Lovers Lane. Sometimes I find it so hard to believe I've been blogging for as long as I have. I'm still always so proud of my past posts too and always look to them for inspiration for upcoming seasons. I just planned all of my April posts today and I'm so excited. It's going to be a fun month on the blog filled with spring, April showers and fun spots around Michigan. I also have a bedroom and blog studio tour planned!

I bought this top so long ago now! I do this all the time. I buy items in the wrong season and then hoard them until I find the perfect moment to wear it. Believe me, I'm already hoarding autumn items I know will look perfect against the changing leaves. I'm excited to start wearing more spring/summer clothes though. Throwing on a dress and some flats and hopping on our scooters is pretty much perfection.

After living in the city for about a month now, I'm definitely missing our little beach town. It was just filled with pretty scenery from Lake Michigan, to overgrown fields, forgotten barns and our historic lighthouse. So, I'm really happy this apple orchard is in our new town. I thought living here would give my blog an urban edge, but I'm really just a nature girl at heart. This orchard makes me feel a little bit more at home.

  49. Such beautiful photos! You have a knack for finding the most beautiful spots to snap photos. The lighting is perfect, the trees are beautiful, and you look as lovely as always. The colors of your outfit look so great against the pink of the blossoms. So glad you get to enjoy some sunshine and bare-leg weather. I'm quite jealous right now! Beautiful photos, dearie!

  50. I want to live here. Just surrounded my pink leaves and walking around in a white lace dress. I know I sound dangerously close to a country music video, but long hair don't care.

    That outfit is lovely, I love the deep v in the back and the girliness of the pink skirt. I tend to never buy anything pink, but that looks really sweet.

    Also, I saw you on the forever21 blog yesterday! Yay you!

  51. I can imagine that you miss the little town now!

    You really look at home with those pink trees! Your outfit reflects on the background perfectly. What a GORGEOUS setting! The pink, blossoming trees are just entrancing.
    Great floral top, I love the deep cut in the back.
    Haha, and I do the same thing with clothes. I've been hoarding all these summer finds I got during fall and winter, so now I can't wait to bust them out!

  63. These photos are GORGEOUS! Are you at Robinettes'? I love it there - I've known the owners my entire life and it has such a special place in my heart. It couldn't be run by a better family.

    You absolutely did the setting justice - I love your outfit! And it's good to see some nature mixed in with the urban settings, too. I'm moving back to GR in August and I can't waaaiit!!
