Floral is everywhere this season. The prints showing up from brands like Joie and Rebecca Taylor are absolutely gorgeous. I love how many are leaning towards a more watercolor floral print, like this Alice + Olivia dress (I'm obsessed!). The pastel colors all look so incredible together. No better way to spice up an outfit than add a floral piece, like shorts or a blouse. Never before have I had such a thing for floral prints. I'm sure you all will be seeing it quite a bit more on the blog this spring.

A New Chapter

I have news. Really, really big news.... I'm moving to New York City!!!

This Saturday, I will be hopping on a plane with my one-way ticket and far too many checked bags. After 7 years in Ohio, I'm finally moving back to my home state. This is something I have always wanted to do, and when the opportunity popped up, I couldn't refuse. It's been an amazing three years in Columbus, but it's time for the next chapter of my life, and I couldn't be more excited.

What does this mean for the blog? Absolutely nothing. I don't plan on stopping this anytime soon, but the blog posts will definitely be a little less as I get my feet on the ground in NYC. I'll keep you all updated on my adventures as much as I can, but make sure you follow along on my Instagram and Twitter, since those are so much easier to update on the go.

"Learn from yesterday, live for today"... Couldn't be more of a true statement. I bought this cuff from the local Rowe Boutique a couple months ago, and I wear it to remind myself this on a daily basis. The past is the past - never over analyze, over-think, or worry too much about it, because if you do, your life will pass right before your eyes. Learn from it and move on. Use it to create and build your future. That's what were all so focused on anyways, isn't it? We are all in a constant state of trying to better ourselves, our lives, over-achieving, and thinking of what our five year and ten year plans are, where we want to live next, what our next job will be, and the list goes on and on. Sometimes, we're so busy we forget to sit still and enjoy the present. That's my goal for this weekend. I'm going to stop worrying about what happened yesterday, what tomorrow will bring, and just be present and enjoy it.
