what i wore

welcome to what i wore!  link up below if you have a fashion post to share.  if you’re not feeling brave enough yet, just start taking pictures of your self to get used to it.  it feels really weird at first!  but more and more, you get a little used to it, then brave enough to share with the rest of us!

putting a few extra minutes into myself, taking care of myself a little, it just makes me feel better.  and it just might do the same for you!

spring mantel. winter mantel. “sprinter” mantel?

spring mantel

i know many of you have had a crazy heavy winter (sorry!), but we’re still kind of waiting for it to happen here.  are we going to have a late winter?  or just skip it altogether and go straight into spring?

spring mantel

maybe all this season confusion has been the cause for my lack of decorating motivation? i’ve decided to just go with what feels pretty to me, despite the season confusion.

spring mantel

bird cages, roses, soft gold & turquoise, contrasting with antlers – so fun!

spring mantel

welcome spring!  or glad you finally made it, winter.
