Spring // OOTD

Spring is here! The days are longer. The nights are warmer. Yellow poppies line the side of the highway, swaying in the serene breeze. I can't recall if the season is always this vibrant so early, but I'll accept the blooming spring flora with open arms.

As a result of the rise in temperature, I had to reorganize my wardrobe. I folded my plethora of leggings & tucked them away in the drawer, swapping them out for a fresh razor. Silky smooth legs, y'all! Feels so nice.

In honor of shaved legs & spring days, I busted out this darling off the shoulder dress from Boohoo*. The Kyra Satin Frill Off Shoulder Shift Dress is comfortable & breathable, making it the ideal option for such a beautiful day. Boohoo has a three other colors to choose from but this navy one seemed the most versatile.

I'm interested to see how the season turns out long-term considering the strange winter we had. San Diego County had its fair share of rain, which is always welcome. Will it be a brutal & scorching summer, or will we have a bit more range? Time will tell.

I'm normally a dog person but I couldn't resist this adorable cat wallet from Betsey Johnson. It has a detachable chain so it can also be used as a miniature purse to sling off your shoulder. It's so stinking cute & I get a lot of compliments on it!

Cheers to the blossoming flowers. Cheers to the rise in temperature. Cheers to the welcoming beams of light from the sun. Cheers to Paris because that's only a few weeks away. I love spring in San diego, but I'm dying to experience the season in Paris. Until then, read more about Paris & stay tuned for the ride!
