Griffith Park, Los Angeles, CA.
It’s a beautiful, crisp and windy day in the neighborhood today. It reminds me of an early east coast spring day- the air is slightly warmer than it has been all winter, the sun is brighter and the air seems fresher.
Growing up in New Hampshire, my family made frequent visits to the local farm on Sundays, after church, and it was always around this time of year that the new bunnies, chicks, and ducks were born. My sister and I longed for airy spring-like days like today, because we knew it meant that the adorable baby animals would be arriving soon. We probably had about fifteen bunnies and a couple of ducks growing up, (we were expert convincers) and even when we were well into high school, Erin and I continued to take trips over to the farm to check out (and attempt to convince my parents they needed to take home) their newest selection of adorable fury friends.
Thinking back on all of this reminds me that I REALLY need to get another bunny… and it also reminds me that spring is a wonderful time of year to allow yourself to get excited about something new- to celebrate change, and fresh beginnings.
I decided to celebrate spring today in the most seasonally appropriate dress I currently own. Perfect for a lunch date with the girls, this dress is new from Ruche and the color and sweetheart top are so flattering and feminine- I simply adore it! I paired the dress with some simple nude heels from Forever21, a pop more color with earrings from That'smineboutique and finished it off with this dainty bracelet from Mickey’s Girl.
