The Inbetween

Y’all, it’s nearly spring {FINALLY}. I know my friends in Texas have been enjoying warm temps for weeks now, but us ‘Dutchies’ have been dealing with rain, sleet, and cold. The thing about this time of the year that can be frustrating/tricky is that whilst all you want to do is buy that adorable summer dress hanging in just about every store, reality sets in and you realize the chance of being able to wear it within the next two months is VERY slim. How to cope??

Wear neutral, fresh colors to liven up that dark and dreary winter wardrobeΒ you’ve been staring at for months. Not sure where to start? White sneakers. Easy to wear, keeps you looking ‘put together’ yet trendy (not to mention comfortable – p.s. I have officially turned into a ‘practical’ shopper/grandma). And when all else fails? PINTEREST. Check out my board ‘Spring Must Haves’. Creating a board of your ‘wishlist’ for each season helps me stay focused when shopping for practical things that I will actually get a lot of use out of. My sis and I started doing this last fall and trust me, it really helps!

Happy Shopping, friends πŸ™‚

We just got back form 7 magical days in a place where time seems to stand still. For the first time in a very long time, we had nowhere to be and no one to see. It was refreshing, relaxing and overall very enjoyable.

We were fortunate enough to visit the island of Boa Vista in Cape Verde (off the west coast of Africa to give you an idea). What I loved most about our trip (other than the beachΒ and spending quality time with our family) was the opportunity to wear some of my favorite spring clothes. One of my favorite trends for this season is off the shoulder tops and platform shoes (because height gives you power, duh)!

I don’t know about you, but I am totally OVER winter. How about y’all? I mean, it’s still around freezing temperatures here in Holland, but each time I see the weather on my iPhone for Ft. Worth, Texas I get depressed. 75 in February?!? Enjoy it guys, while the rest of us continue to wear sweaters well into June.

What is your favorite place to vacation?
