Almost Spring

We've gone through a bit of a cold front here in north Texas these past two weeks or so. (Oh, what is that you say? You got 3 feet of snow where you live? I still stand by the fact that you should just move to Texas already. Cold weather wimps are welcome here. We have everything you need, too and everyone rides to work on a horse. Promise.) It's not that I mind cold weather, (I do, though. I hate it. I should just move to Florida, but the horse thing is hard to move past. It's a bonus.) it's just that once your brain changes to a season, you want it to be that season. Especially in Texas because for just a small amount of time it's just above freezing and just below boiling. I want it to always be spring. Spring is the best time of the year; you get to wear dresses with light jackets and sit out on patios without sweating. What can I say? I'm a simple woman with simple needs. 

Also, I'm obsessed with this blazer. I know I've only worn it twice on the blog but I think I've worn it 7 or 8 times since buying it a few weeks ago. I used to feel bad about my blazer obsession but now I'm okay with it. Out of all the things to be obsessed about, I feel like blazers are benign. I mean, any obsession that makes you always look ready for a job interview is always a safe choice.

  3. You always mix patterns so perfectly! Love the pairing of that blazer with your top. I'm jealous that TX is having nice weather right now :)

  4. I have a friend in TX (I live in Minnesota) and we joke that she needs to spend the summers in MN and I need to spend the winters in TX. It would be the perfect balance!

  15. Hello!

    I was just in Bloom earlier today (The Girl with the Pink Curls)!

    I got home, went on Pinterest, and saw a pin from your blog post today! I absolutely love your style and am so glad that McKinney has an adorable boutique that gives me a little piece of the city when I'm away from Dallas.

    I hope you have a fantastic week.

    Cheers!

  18. Yep, I'm pretty much obsessed with this outfit and that blazer. I can see why you have worn it multiple times already. The Texas weather is crazy though... I'm ready for the perfect 72ish degree days that only exist for about 2 weeks of the entire spring.

  28. I live in Florida and we've had cold weather the past week also! Today was only high 65ish, which isn't cold for most, but for being almost April, we normally never see cooler temps. I'm trying to welcome it with open arms, but the Florida girl in me just wants sun and the beach.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You should just move to Florida already! You would love it here, and we have lots of pretty horses too. Love those pants on you.

  30. Although my family lives in Texas, I decided to go to school in Chicago... it's a decision I regret each year when January rolls around!
    And I'm also obsessed with that blazer. The crazier the print, the better!

    Love the floral blazer paired with striped top. I have never been to Texas. Grew up in Hawaii where the weather is pretty much the same all year around. I am not one for the cold either.

  35. Those jeans. You're killing me! I dream of wearing bold colored jeans, but at 5'1", I just haven't found the right cut/fit. Skinny jeans seem to be everyone's miracle but mine. Here's to dreaming. Loving the floral and stripes.

  54. I just started laughing while reading this. No more than 5 minutes ago I was talking to my coworker about how everyone thinks we ride horses to school in Nevada. I moved to DC and no one believes that we have roads out west-- HA! Love your blazer!
