So today is the first day of spring…

spring2013All I can say is, I’m glad it’s sunny and not snowing! It’s still really, really cold. In positive spirit though, I’m looking forward to more sunny skies, flowers in bloom and perhaps the thermometer hitting the 50 degree mark – or preferably higher….


In other news, I got these awesome red boots in the mail last week and have had quite a few complements on them (not to toot my own horn).

Also, have you been liking the cool Cambridge Satchels? I’ve been seeing them everywhere. They are such great cross-body bags and they basically come in every color. I think the new pastel and neon colors are super cute for spring, but I don’t think I would ever pay that price for a trendier colored bag…

Yesterday, I mentioned my want for cute wooden wedge heels. This goes back to when I first discovered Chloe and their amazing collection of wood heels and sandals (which they seem to be updating every season). Now, I could never afford those heels, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get the look…

Also, in my quest for a beautiful brown bag and my love for Mulberry , I found this cute little bag for the fraction of the price of the Alexa Mulberry Satchel…

(side note – I bought the black Mulberry for Target bag when it was in stores a couple years ago and was obsessed with it – wore it with everything. Alas, it was stolen along with a bunch of other things… so I’m always looking for another replacement)


So here’s hoping for some of this soon…
