Great Weather and Polka Dots

Until this last weekend we have been having some great weather. It seems like it has almost been unseasonably warm. So I took it as an opportunity to break out my shorts for the last time. I love these shorts. They are so comfortable! They are probably the softest denim I have ever worn (from Gap!). I wore them as much as I could all summer. But sadly it was so cold and snowy this weekend so I’m going to have to resort to my leggings and coats again. I LOVE cold weather clothing, but definitely not the cold. I’m in for a long winter 🙁

Gingham and Polka Dot Blues

If you follow along, you know I’ve featured this skirt before (here) from J.Crew Factory. I bought another one that is similar in shape in bright pink too! I really like them because they are light and great for spring and summer at a great price too! I got both of them an extra 40% off during one of their sales. Yet another great perk of J.Crew Factory. All of their stuff is already a lower price than regular J.Crew products (and almost the same as their normal stuff…and still great quality!), plus they always have fabulous sales on top of their lowered prices.

So now to move on from my “rant” about J.Crew…I thought this was a fun springy outfit. I have noticed that I tend to wear a lot of blue so this was a good way to wear it, but mix prints. Plus I made sure my nails had some bright colors on them at least! I paired it with some “spring booties” and I love this fun statement necklace as well. Not too big, but it gets the job done!

(I also took these photos a little bit ago…it just snowed two days ago, but not this much! It’s May…it really just needs to be sunny)

Soft Jacket and Jeans

It’s raining today 🙁 I was planning on doing a big swim post because it’s been so nice and warm again this week and I’ve been getting really excited about the sun! But…I figured I just couldn’t do a swim post on a day like today…maybe tomorrow it will be sunny…let’s just cross our fingers. I also really need to wash my car so let’s hope it doesn’t keep raining too, because I just see no point in washing the inside of my car if I am not going to wash the outside…you know what I mean?

Anyway…

 I love this jacket by Go Make Noise. My friend and I were walking around Nordstrom one night and the girl working there brought it in for us to try on…usually I never even pay attention to the stuff they bring in because I’m so lazy and don’t try in half of the stuff I grab anyway, but I was like ok I’ll give it a try and I’m so glad I did. It’s really cute and so comfortable! We both ended up getting it. I think it’s great for spring and will match with some many of my things!
