Surprise Spring Snow Day!

Well, after being teased with 60+ degree weather and sunshine last week, mother nature struck back and dumped a snowy/icy mess last night.  I woke up to a 5:30 a.m. phone call saying that school was cancelled today.  Horray!  I'm sick of snow, but at least I got to sleep in today!  And now only two more days until spring break.

I wore this outfit over the weekend for dinner out with the in-laws.  I really wanted to wear this to work on St. Patty's Day last week, but felt like it was just a little too short for that.  During my trip to Anthro last month, I spotted this Woody Nymph dress in the sale room.  The earthy print really drew me in and I think it's a versatile dress than can be worn year round.  I bought this belt specifically to go with this dress, but I've found that it goes with a lot!  I finally have a navy belt..woohoo!

I'm back! Spring Wish-List and "Already Caved" List

Hi readers!  Remember me?  It's been almost exactly a month since I last posted.  Sorry that I disappeared.  I don't have any real excuse for it except for the fact that my computer is really old and slow (I'm in desperate need of a new one!) and I've just been in a winter slump.  Well, today was the warmest day we've had in a long time (a whopping 54 degrees) so I guess it helped snap me out of my winter hibernation mode and got me thinking about sweet spring!

So, without further ado here are some of the spring things I've already caved in and purchased along with the pretties I'm still patiently wishing for!

Already Caved

Anthropologie Ardennes Skirt
Does this not look like the most absolutely perfect spring skirt?  Love the pastel colors and feminine pleats.  I just caved and order this the other day when I saw my size was already dwindling, so I haven't actually gotten it yet.  I really hope I love it because I'm already styling my Easter day outfit in my mind.

Anthropologie Strappy Stepper Shoes
I've had my eyes on these since they first hit the website.  The only reason I caved so quickly is because there was only one pair left in my size!  Still haven't received them yet, so I'll be sure to post a review once I get them!

Old Navy Ruffled Gauze Top - navy polka dot
I don't shop at Old Navy very often, but on a whim I popped in there after work last week.  This caught my eye and to my surprise, it fit really well!  It's so adorable with the ruffles along the neckline and hem!  If you are interested, I definitely recommend sizing down.  I've already paired this with the navy Blooming Lattice Cardi and with a grey cardi and I got many compliments on both combos.

BC Footwear Afterglow Pump - teal
I just caved and purchased these literally minutes ago. has a 25% off promo going on today through Saturday so I decided to treat myself.  A review will be coming soon!


Anthropologie Tuileries Dress
This dress has already gotten a lot of buzz in the blogging world.  I have yet to see this in person, but it sure is pretty to look at online!  I am a sucker for flower patterns afterall!

Anthropologie Tempore Cardigan
Love the lace detailing and neutral color.  I can imagine pairing this with so many spring/summer dresses and skirts.  Reviews on Anthro's website suggest that the arms are really tight I'll be holding out on this one until I can try it on at the store.

Mariana Misty Ankle-Strap Pump
Another pair of shoes I spotted on  Love the green color.  Don't you think they would look wonderful with the Ardennes skirt?  Not really sure what else I'd wear them with though, so they'll continue to just be eye candy for now :) 

One more thing on my Spring Wish-list is a lightweight spring jacket.  I'd like a neutral color such as khaki or "army" green.  Not a trenchcoat, because I already have one.  I just want one that is about hip length.  I've been searching the internet and have not found one I like yet.  Any suggestions?
