hint of spring

saturday afternoons are my absolute favorite. today, i got to wake up after 10 am, make eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast, and go for a run. the sun was shining and the temps were in the 60s (!!!). can you believe it? i don't know if this is some kind of global warming situation happening right now, but it feels like spring and i am way more than okay with this. i've been experiencing extreme lack of inspiration with all of these dreary winter days and a dose of vitamin d made me feel a million times better.


it didn't hurt that i checked my mail yesterday and had a lovely package from my sponsors over at persunmall. when i picked out this emerald green dress from their site, it was hard not to order it in every color. the fit is perfect, and i love the three-quarter length sleeves. it can be dressed up for work or dressed down for a day out and about. and the best part-- the length! i have the hardest time finding dresses that don't become shirts after one wash (that's what being 5'8" does to ya). but this hits right above the knee. perfecto.


the also sent me this necklace. if you don't know by now, i'm obsessed with all things turquoise. and just a bonus-- it's only $2.99. i mean come on, you can't beat cute accessories for great prices. my jewelry collection is getting a little out of hand, but when you can find cute pieces like this for next to nothing, i just can't resist.




guess what i'm doing tonight? going to a ball. doesn't that sound fancy? it's a ball celebrating the founding of american university (where i work) and a bunch of girls in my office signed up to help out. we'll have to check people in, take coats, etc. but i'm guessing we will get some free time to eat yummy food and dance, not to mention we get to dress up! i'm really loving my new job so far. the first month has been great and i feel so lucky to enjoy what i spend most of my days doing.


hope everyone can get out this evening and have a fun saturday night! you deserve it. :)

  3. That dress is incredibly cute and I love how you styled it. I know how you feel about length - I am 5'7" and it always looks like I am trying to flash someone lol.

  18. We had 60F this weekend too! Normally, we have snow until half March, but this winter I haven't even seen one snowflake! It's been an insane one, all over the globe it seems :) But on the other hand, I'm so over my winter wardrobe too! I love this outfit, your necklace is super sweet :) xo
