Red Touch of Spring

I feel like I blinked and opened my eyes to spring. As I was walking around downtown today, enjoying an iced soy caramel latte, I couldn't help but realize that I missed the blooming of spring! Trees everywhere are white and pink! There is this gorgeous tree outside of school that is just so vibrantly pink and I'm like, "Whoa! There did that come from?!" But am I thoroughly enjoying this? Oh, of course. It was a delightful eighty-three degrees outside today with an amazing breeze!

I can't believe I spent the whole day with my face stuck on this screen, but my portfolio is finally complete! I can't believe I'm two weeks away from finishing up my experience here in college. I'm honestly going to miss it, but I'm also so ready to be a full time career lady! Now I just need to finish up a couple of projects, plan a mini-presentation, get my gallery prepped and ready for the student exhibition and get all of my graduation requirements taken care of! Ah, this is so insane, you guys!

I received this dress from Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky! If I were to give you my number one inspiration resource, I would definitely say it's her. I feel like every time I visit her blog, she is wearing something I would totally wear.. or wish I was wearing, at least. That's why it's so amazing that she sends me off all of her amazing clothes to style up myself. Click here to see how she styled it up! She wore it in Hawaii and it looks gorgeous in that setting. It's fun to see clothes in a new light, a new setting and on a new person. It can totally change the look, but I feel like our styles are very much the same in a lot of ways.

I love how spring and fall accepts colors so well. Trying red in the winter is a little bit riskier of a move, especially when you're putting yourself against a bright white backdrop.. and your skin is most likely blinding pale, well mine is at least. I couldn't pull of the red lips much in winter, but it was definitely a favorite in the fall, so I thought I'd try it again in this transition period, and I love it. Fall and spring are definitely my two favorite seasons. It's just stunning outside right now. Go - stop reading - get out and enjoy it ;) Have a wonderful Friday, everyone!
