Let The Springtime Merriment Begin!

It...is...Spring! Did I just type that? Oh my goodness. It is still chilly in New York but now that Spring is officially here I can officially get excited about a few things.

I am more of a Fall/Spring sort of girl. The extreme weather of the Winter/Summer is unpleasant for me and it also creates a lot of challenges for me because of my disability. I feel like in the Fall/Spring weather I can feel and be my best self. Now to find a part of the world that has just those two seasons!

I am looking forward to so much. I cannot wait to store away my coat and children's coats as well. Goodbye to a zillion hats, scarves, and gloves! I look forward to opening my windows in my house and letting the fresh air in. My cat loves to feel the breeze go through her fur and I love watching her bask in it. I look forward to taking the children to places we haven't been to yet and try new crafts like pottery and painting (on canvas). I look forward to taking a nice stroll in Central Park and showing my husband my favorite painting (finally) at The Met. It is called The Storm and was painted by Pierre Auguste Cot.

I want to finally get to Tea & Sympathy as we tried three times during this challenging winter to no avail. I want to take my children to the horse stables nearby where I live and have them take a pony ride. I want to get back on a horse, I haven't been on one since I was twelve. I don't know if I can physically do it but gosh darnit I want to try.

Spring just brings this feeling of renewal, freshness, and inspiration that is undeniable. And I plan to ride the wave until the unbearable heat has me hiding in air conditioned rooms.

I adore the patone colors for this season. You can apply them to your vintage, vintagey, or modern wardrobes. Heck go nuts with all of it and the best part is you don't have to stick to the seasons colors but they are nice for outfit inspiration. Here are the Pantone Fashion Colors for Spring 2014.

 What are you looking forward to the most? Any plans to try something new and different?

  1. wonderful colours to wear this sping ;)

  2. I'm never quite sure what to make of Pantone, but I do like those colors for spring. I'm not quite sure what to expect of spring on this coast yet, but I feel like cardigans are more my speed than cotton dresses, so far.

  3. This palette is making my colour loving heart happy, too! I like that it's a bit more earthy than the usual spring pastels (which can be lovely, don't get me wrong) and seem to have a certain air of much appreciated sophistication to them.
