This past Sunday marked the first day of spring! My sister and I joke that everyone pretends to love spring because, well, it is the respite from winter, but really, the day to day weather tends to be chilly, windy, wet, and muddy, muddy, muddy! Things that I do love about spring are the smells in the air — the earth and rain, but most of all, the new blooms in all the flowering trees around St. Louis. There’s a fragrant earthiness mixed with sweet perfume, a wonderful smell. Today I decided to pay tribute to those flowers with a flower crown!
And I’ve finally found a decently-priced sweet denim jacket that goes with about everything I wear. I love the peter pan collar and shape of the pockets. It’s lightweight and in a loose enough fit to layer over sweaters for those cold spring mornings.
