So here’s what I think: after December 25th, it should be spring. Leave it to Texas weather (and apparently everywhere else in the South) to dangle that dream right in front of our faces, and then snatch it away with a 30 degree drop in temperatures and some sleet thrown in for good measure. Well ya know what? I’m rebelling.
While still plenty warm thanks to my favorite fur snood and a dainty sweatshirt, I’m sneaking some spring into my step with white and a bit of bright pink.
The combination proved to be fresh and bright enough to keep me from giving into the urge of throwing on a romper just for the heck of it.
(I, along with all residents of Austin who would be permanently scarred at witnessing such a sight, count that as a major victory.)
And this bag… I, um, might have accidentally grabbed it out of my sister’s closet. (Good thing she never remembers to read my blog!) I’m already scheming how to sneak it out of Dallas and into Austin with me.
These white Kendra Scott earrings I purchased last spring have turned out to be one of the best wardrobe investments I’ve made, as I can truly say I’ve worn them year round! (And she just released her new Atlantic collection… uh oh!)
As far as the lipstick goes, I didn’t even know how to apply it before coming to college… and bright pink certainly wasn’t anywhere on my radar. But after seeing this color in an Instagram from Ashley Cates, I simply had to give it a try. Safe to say it’s my new spring favorite!
Speaking of Ashley, I got to spend the most incredible Saturday with the most incredible group of bloggers this past weekend in Dallas. I can’t wait to tell you all about it, but for now see a sneak peak at our fun day here! (Hint… I’m sending you to the blog of one of the most adorable humans ever in existence. Fair warning.)

Wherever you are, I hope you’re staying warm! Hang-in there, spring really is just around the corner! (And now you have some fun ideas for faking it until then!)
Love from Texas,
