Enjoying Spring



After what seems like an endless winter, spring finally seems to be in the air. The surest sign for me? I don’t have to wear a jacket anymore! I am beyond happy to start breaking out the shorts and sandals. The flowers are starting to come up and yesterday (much to my delight) was the first day I was able to sit out on the quad with my homework. Getting some sun felt SO good.

Yesterday, my boyfriend reluctantly agreed to be featured in an outfit of the day post. He just looked so casually springy that I had to share. So, here’s what we were wearing:

On Matt: shirt, Lands’ End Canvas; shorts, American Eagle; boat shoes, Dockers.

On me: sunglasses, Maui Jim; shirt, J.Crew Factory; shorts, Old Navy; boat shoes, Sperry.

How have you been enjoying the weather?

The finals crunch is upon us!

Here at my school, it’s the last week of classes.  And that means one thing…every hard assignment from the semester is due this week.  In the last two days, I’ve written two and a half research papers, and I still have one and a half more to go.  You could say that people are going a little crazy.  Thank goodness it’s Wednesday and the week is almost over!

I know that fashion is definitely the last thing on your mind when you’re cramming in all that work in preparation for finals, but I think it’s still important to look cute while sitting in the library, even though you may or may not be dying a little on the inside.  Obviously, comfort is key when it comes to finals week fashion.  I’ve put together a few looks that will keep you cozy, but also help you to look put together even when your mind is a little out of whack.  Also, I’m a firm believer in the “dress well, test well” philosophy, so hopefully these will help!

I hope these outfits give you some inspiration to look cute while you’re working hard studying! I’m definitely going to try to recreate them best as I can!

Good luck on finals!  Only a couple more weeks till summer!! 🙂

First Signs of Spring!

Hello lovelies!  The sun is shining, the air is warm, and it’s OFFICIALLY springtime!  I don’t have a favorite season in particular, but I especially love the beginning of all of them.  There’s something about the promise of the season to come that gets me all excited.

Here in Massachusetts, we’ve had gorgeous sunny weather all week and it’s been amazing.  I seriously don’t want it to end!  I’ve been noticing a few tell-tale signs of springtime around my campus.  I’ll share them with you here…let us know in the comments if there are any signs of spring that you’ve noticed and I’ve missed!

1. Flowers are starting to bloom!  Where I go to school, this is limited to hearty flowers like daffodils and crocuses, but they’re gorgeous nonetheless.  I’ve also been seeing pictures that friends in DC and New York have been posting of cherry and apple blossoms, and I’m so jealous of their pretty flowering trees!

This morning, I turned into a bit of a nature photographer and took pictures of the pretty blooms on my campus.

2. People have come out of hibernation.  Granted, we had a mild winter and not many people stayed holed up inside, but all of a sudden it’s like an explosion of people on campus.  Frisbees, footballs, outdoor runs, people are getting outside and enjoying the sun.  I think a subset of this is all of the couples that have suddenly appeared.  It seems that everywhere I look, there is a couple holding hands or sneaking kisses on the quad.

I enjoy this part of spring the most because I love doing my homework outside in the sunshine.  It’s the best!  I’m even writing this blog post while sitting outside 🙂

3. All-of-a-sudden, I want to eat ice cream again.  I don’t know if this is just me, but there is something about spring that makes me want to walk around outside with an ice-cream cone.

4.  People are wearing shorts!  I’ve been wearing them all week, and I’ve been noticing that everyone else is too!  People want to show off the tans they got on spring break, and this weather is really letting them take advantage of it.

5. Music. Blasting. Everywhere.  Again, I don’t know if this is just my campus or not, but every spring when the weather starts to get nice again, people seem to take that as a license to blast music out of their windows.  Usually I don’t mind, but when I have to listen to dub step on my walk to Psych class, I’m going to be less than thrilled.

What are some of the signs of spring that you’ve noticed?
