Bad Weather Blues

So the weather here in Rockport has been nothing short of miserable the last week or so. Cold, windy and rainy is good for one thing - grabbing a blanket and taking some glorious afternoon naps. I do appreciate getting the rain, as we desperately needed it, but days upon days of dreary weather leaves me with cabin fever. I braved the weather yesterday and ran 4 miles in the (what felt like) icy cold rain and was miserable. Facebook also assures me that I'm not alone, because I know many of my friends have posted about cold, snowy weather where they live also. It's just that dreary weather time of year.

So to brighten things up a little, I've done a little online shopping looking for some lovely and colorful spring styles. Thinking and dreaming of warmer weather...

Love the coral colors in these earrings. They also come in turquoise, which is fun and spring-y. I have both pairs and have gotten numerous compliments on them! I can't wait to wear them with a cute sundress!

Wouldn't this top be absolutely adorable with some white skinny jeans and these fun wedges? I think so!

I'm sure this will more than scream southern roots and Georgia upbringing, but I just love me some Lilly Pulitzer. Aren't the clothes just the epitome of sunny springtime in the south? I could easily see myself wearing this dress to a baby or wedding shower. I've thought long and hard about making this cute dress a home in my closet.

Maybe a little shot of color and fun spring-y patterns is all we need to emerge from the dreary weather doldrums. Here's looking forward to sunny days in the forecast!

Mmmm...this is a yummy post. Particularly those earrings. If you get tired of wearing them, feel free to send them my way. :)

Umm, ditto to Erika's comment, but when you feel like your closet is becoming annoying, donate it to Mel, because I only shop at thrift stores, because I can't afford real shopping anymore due to 3 children.

I miss you. That's all.
