Simple Spring

Thursday, March 9, 2017 4:30 AM

Happy Thursday Loves! 
Is time moving at warp speed for anyone else, or just me?
I can't believe we are just one day away from the weekend again.  As they say, time flies when you are having fun. 

 This weekend we will be changing the clocks and springing forward and I will be throwing a party, as it is my most favorite day of the year!! With the weather all of the map recently, 70 degrees one day 21 the next, we will at least be getting a little extra sunlight in! WOO!!! 

I saw this top and immediately fell in love. I love the Victorian neckline, bell sleeves and light weight fabric makes it a  perfect transition piece.  
















 top  similar here, here and here / jeans / bag / boots similar here and here  /

I had mentioned I went away this past weekend.  To say I had a blast would be an understatement. We relaxed, shopped, ate fantastic dinners and I finally got the tattoos I have wanted. 
Everyone has the struggle of good vs. evil, the ying and yang, balance of forces, etc. I decided to make it a little more personal and with a nod to my ballet days and get an outline of small white swan on my left wrist, and a small black swan on my right.  If any of you are familiar with ballet Swan Lake or even the movie Black Swan, you understand the reference.  Knowing the risk of getting a white tattoo, I did it anyway. As it is healing it looks more like a scar, so I will probably have to get it fixed at some point, but I am still happy with my decision. 


xx, Elise
