Edgy Feminine Style Tweaks

It's not surprising that I would flood my blog with everything Spring. This season symbolizes so many special things for me. Spring was a time I played outside for hours as a kid growing up in Vermont, a time when I celebrated another year of life, moments spent with my grandmother in her garden, walks and runs by the lake with my dog, and my love of fresh air and new beginnings. This is also a season when I can go crazy styling my life with more Spring whites and fresh flowers. 

There's a forgiveness about this season that gives us all a chance to start fresh; blossoming into the person we are meant to be. Although I dream about visiting California all the time, I don't know if I could permanently live in a place that didn't have the change of seasons. It would be difficult for someone like-me who is addicted to change. 

I would love to know which time of year inspires you to be yourself. Comment below and share your favorite season and why you love it so much?

Outfit Style Inspiration

I'm always finding the balance between feminine and edgy when I style an outfit. This beautiful floral print dress has a conservative silhouette that demands respect when paired with a strong structured [animal-friendly :)] faux leather jacket. Instead of going with a super feminine or conservative style shoe I had to pair this conservative dress with a modern structured shoe to let the dress do all the girl talk.
