Spring Has Sprung

April 2, 2014

Spring has sprung y’all and that’s just about as southern as I’m going to get today.  Unlike some parts of the United States — it’s starting to look and feel a lot like spring here in Jacksonville.  Spring is one of my favorite seasons because of the life and color it brings.  We are fortunate in North Florida to actually have a winter and spring before the heat of the summer season swells.  But before I literally start melting this summer I like to take advantage of being outside and going to one of my favorite places in Jacksonville, The Cummer Museum & Gardens in Riverside.  It’s the perfect backdrop to celebrate a new season with it’s pristine grounds right along the St. John’s River.  I took blogger bestie Kirstin Marie and her visiting parents to the Gardens for the first time and I loved how they reacted to the beauty of the Cummer.  There’s so much to appreciate here with it’s charm and loveliness with it’s nooks and cranies.  If you live here in Jacksonville take advantage of their permanent art collection and spring beauty and whimsy by visiting what I like to call our Petit Versailles — plus admission is free every Tuesday 4-9pm and every first Saturday of the month — which is this weekend!  So let’s fête — it’s Spring!

Oh and congratulations to Alana (@hulkgirl) for winning my ASOS Giveaway!  I hope you get that scuba skirt you’ve been eyeing — it’ll be perfect for Spring!

    This… I have no words! I’ve been following you for a while now and while I hardly ever comment, I do take note that you slay the scene every single time. As you stated above you are normally an 18-22. Well, so am I. Please keep inspiring myself and others!

    I am in love with this! I read your post about straight sizes and how this is a 14, can I ask you what you normally wear? I want to try this but wonder if its totally out of my size 18 league. Thanks!

    The skirt looks so much cuter in your photos! The yellow looks dull in the product image photos. I used my credit I won from you to buy the red version (which also looked better in your photos than in the product image photos!). I was tempted to buy the blue skirt, and now after seeing the yellow here, I want it too!

      The skirt is definitely different in person. I’ve noticed that with a couple of things I’ve purchased. But it’s all been a pleasant surprise. Happy Shopping!
