This bright spring outfit is bursting with color. The orange color of the skirt is as bold as it looks, so no slinking in the back door unnoticed. Fuller skirts are what I want to live in during the warmer months. They offer a delicious freedom of movement and there’s that lovely swish of fabric during the slightest breeze.
What do you reach for again and again in spring/summer?

Not feeling very perky today, but tried to pull myself together for this post. I guess this is the very thing about picking outfits from day-to-day — it varies greatly and for me, depends on my mood. Jackson and I went for a long walk at lunch in the sunny, but quite breezy weather today. In general that was good, but he was the only one who got to take a nap afterward.
You might notice in the description that my shirt is thrifted. We have a truly wonderful store in Boulder called Common Threads (there’s one in Denver too), where I love to go. Sometimes I find a few things and other times not, but the designer labels read like a Fashion Week runway schedule (Prada, Chloe, Stella, Isabelle, Tory, etc.) I was so close to getting a BCBG dress last time, but it was not quite right, even though it was only $18. Love that!
Does anyone else like to go thrifting?
During the day…
Switching shoes for night
Wearing: Target shirred tank / Nordstrom floral midi skirt / Slip-On (top photo) Me Too by Adam Tucker / Espadrilles (bottom photo) Franco Sarto / Loft bracelet / Stella & Dot necklace / World Market earrings / Pour La Victoire convertible clutch.
Looking forward to today and lunch with a dear friend. We’ll take some time to enjoy the sun and flowers on Pearl St. Mall and do some window shopping. Who can resist lingering outside when the weather is hitting 80 degrees today?! I chose this flower print midi-skirt in honor of Earth Day and am doing an airy slip-on for daytime. I’d switch up the shoes for a date night to the high-heel espadrilles, which just make me feel like it’s summer already.
Hope you have a good one!

Playing catch up with my Nothing New project. Here are my outfits from the past few days. We had a long weekend off from school and that always means busy, busy, busy. We also went to my sister’s house this weekend for a family get-together with was really wonderful. We sat around for hours enjoying the weather, talking and eating good food.
Hope you’ve had a good weekend too and are settling into your week. The weather is getting nicer and nicer! So ready for that.
