Dressing for Spring...

Spring is in full bloom in San Antonio and I am loving the warmer temperatures! Leaves are reemerging  and flowers are slowly starting to blossom.

With this new weather comes so many fun possibilities -- exercising outdoors, dining al fresco, sitting on my back patio with a glass of wine...

Warmer weather also means a change in my wardrobe. Skirts, dresses, and sandals can all come out of hiding, which does wonders for my "fashion confidence."

Dressing for Winter is difficult for me. I don't feel I layer pieces well; I don't love wearing jeans; and I don't particularly enjoy being cold!

But with Spring I feel like I can flourish -- throw on a dress and sandals -- and I can regain some of the mojo I lost with cold weather dressing.

While I am still on my 90 day shopping ban, I have new eyes for the items in my closet.

Here are three things I am excited to wear this Spring...

Wide Leg White Pants

I have a fabulous pair of white wide leg pants and I hardly ever wear them. I was thinking about why they get cast to the back of my closet season after season and I finally realized why -- they have to to be ironed! None of my other pants need to be ironed, so when I am in a hurry, I obviously choose the easy to wear options. Solution: Next time I iron a dress shirt for work, I am going to iron those pants as well.

Here are some of my favorite white pants for Spring...

Lilly Pulitzer Dresses

I have a handful of amazing Lilly Pulitzer dresses and they don't see the light of day unless I am on vacation. This is totally going to change this Spring! I have this new zest for bright colors and bold prints and I can't wait to take my Lilly dresses out for a spin!

Here are some of my favorite Lilly dresses...


I bought a pair of Keds last year and they are still in the box. I'm looking forward to pairing them with dresses, skirts, and shorts this Spring!

Here are some adorable Keds...
