Who else is excited to bring their spring and summer wardrobe out of hibernation? I must say, living in South Florida, I rarely put away my summer clothes. It’s an endless summer here. I do try to wear more winter appropriate items from October-February. Less color, prints, and summer textiles. More cozy knits, denim, and neutrals. One print that is perfect for summer is gingham!

I want to be able to sit quietly and allow my thoughts to flow and not stress about when I’m going to get the next blog post up or what photo I should post on Instagram. This week I’m going to work on disconnecting more. I would say I would read a book or a magazine, but I think that I’d still be missing the point. Does anyone else feel like this? Or am I the only one? Continue reading →
