This past weekend was beautiful! I'm refusing to wear tights now. Don't get me wrong, I love tights. But I'm just so over them. There are only so many tights a girl can wear. This is another attempt at styling some older items in my closet! I've had this skirt for years – way before I started blogging. I love that I still have some of the pieces I have. I'm sure this skirt was like $15 from F21, but it's been one of my favorites. I paired a few new accessories for spring with this outfit too – these amazing, simple flats and my very favorite type of sunglasses, Ray Ban wayfarers! We took a little stroll around our neighborhood to snap these photos, and afterwards I fell asleep on the couch stuffed full of pizza. Ah, aren't Sundays great? I've been sticking close to home for a lot of photos lately (therefore, the many brick walls), but I promise I have so many fun adventures planned soon. Especially for spring! :)

Happy Monday, everyone! I'm really excited for this week, because it's a short one for me! Plus, it's packed full of fun plans. On Wednesday, Eric and I are going to see one of my favorite bands, Tokyo Police Club. On Thursday, I have a major hair appointment! That's all I'm going to say for now, of course. ;) And on Friday morning, we leave for Nashville for a long weekend with two of our best friends. I'm looking forward to it so much. It's currently snowing here in Michigan, and it's supposed to be 60's to 70's while we're there. Hallelujah! I have a few more posts lined up before we leave, but then all next week, I'll be blogging about our trip! And you can always follow along with my Instagram too. I've been really good at updating lately. I'm kind of obsessed.

Yay - spring clothes! It's been so fun to play around in my closet after bringing my spring stuff up from the basement. In my attempt to try and remix some of my older stuff, I came across this gem of a dress! I wore this four years ago in my "in the gardens" post. It's so funny having blogged for so long... you remember exactly what you wore in specific posts. Oh yeah, I wore that dress to that garden four years ago. How weird, right?! Anyway, I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Eric and I shared fish tacos and drinks last night. He has a full weekend of shows with his band, so I decided to skip last night and get some stuff done and I'll go see him play tonight. But last night, I went grocery shopping, spring cleaned my car and thoroughly scrubbed our bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. I sort of feel like superwoman right now. ;)

Here's outfit 7 of 7 of my collaboration with Ruche to style 7 rustic pieces, 7 ways! This is it! We're done! I absolutely loved being part of this feature, and I hope you enjoyed it too. It definitely inspired me to get more creative with my wardrobe. Now I just need to work on keeping that inspiration going throughout spring! I actually laid out a spring outfit last night, and I'm wearing it at work today. Crazy, right?! I'm headed off right now to get my bangs trimmed and I'll snap photos later for a new outfit post tomorrow. See you guys then! xo

Here's outfit 6 of 7 of my collaboration with Ruche to style 7 rustic pieces, 7 ways! We're on the home stretch! The last three sets of photos were a lot trickier for us to take at our local garden. We decided to go into the tropical area, and there is a current exhibition going on called "Butterflies are Blooming" and it was so busy! People would just stand there and stare at us taking photos. It would drive me nuts! One group of ladies were just standing there staring, and I was like, "It's okay! You can go ahead!" And they were like, "We like watching!" I'm like, ugh, just move it along so we can finish this up. Hahah. Oh well. Such is life. I'll post my last outfit tomorrow of the collaboration, and that's it! I loved this 7 for 7 remix challenge though. It inspired me to get a bit creative. I brought up all of my spring/summer clothes from the basement tonight, and I was like... I seriously wear 1/4 of my wardrobe. So sad. I'm thinking of maybe taking an inventory, and challenging myself to style each item at least one time this spring/summer. And if I don't, then I get rid of it. We'll see. ;)

Here's outfit 5 of 7 of my collaboration with Ruche to style 7 rustic pieces, 7 ways! It's been really fun to post every day on the blog... and it's kind of inspiring me to try and keep it up. I know that won't happen, but it could be a fun challenge! I also took over their Instagram this weekend, and that was also fun to post on a lot. It's been motivating me to kick it up a little bit on my own account! To be honest, my life isn't that exciting unless I'm off adventuring somewhere fun. I work an 8-5 job, where I pretty much sit behind my desk all day. It's definitely a creative job, but not in the sense where I have cupcakes, flowers, and pretty clothes to post on all day. But, I'm going to definitely try to post more both here and on Instagram. Especially now that spring is here!

Here's outfit 4 of 7 of my collaboration with Ruche to style 7 rustic pieces, 7 ways! I was a little nervous to style shorts (especially so close after winter), but I love how this outfit turned out. I can definitely see myself wearing these shorts for nautical outfits to see lighthouses this summer as well! Eyelet material is one of my favorites. Did you guys have a good weekend? I had a blast! I loved taking over Ruche's Instagram. Plus, we got to eat dinner with my parents, and catch a baseball game with friends today. It's also looking like it's going to stay in the 50s this week. Finally, spring is here!

Here's outfit 3 of 7 of my collaboration with Ruche to style 7 rustic pieces, 7 ways! I absolutely love this skirt; the color is just so pretty for spring. I was glad we were able to take pictures in this desert-like spot of our local gardens too. It all fit together so well! Also, if you didn't know... I'm taking over Ruche's Instagram for the weekend! I've already posted a couple of photos, and will continue today and tomorrow. So if you want to see what I'm up to this weekend, be sure to follow along there.  Tonight, we're headed to the lakeshore to have dinner with my parents, so I'm looking forward to that. Have a great rest of your weekend! See you tomorrow for outfit #4. :)

Here's outfit 2 of 7 of my collaboration with Ruche on styling 7 rustic pieces, 7 ways! If you missed the feature and all of the outfits, be sure to check it out. In other great news, I'll be taking over their Instagram all weekend long! So be sure to follow them, so you can see what I'm up to. I've had the most chaotic week. Work has been super busy, my crazy eye is freaking people out (including myself), and it's been cold, cold, cold here in Michigan. Give me warmth, spring. You're failing so far. So, needless to say, I'm totally ready for the weekend. Eric and I have Thai planned for tonight, and probably some couch cuddles. I can't wait!
