Bittersweet

Yesterday we were graced with our warmest day yet. It was sooo beautifully mild & the sun was shining and I didn't shiver even the slightest with bare legs and sandals, even here at nearly 7 o'clock in the evening! Unfortunately, I spent the entire day inside working, and then steam cleaning my sofa (random item checked off the to-do list) and didn't even REALIZE we were having an almost summer day out there! Either way, the bit I did get to experience was enough to fill my heart & mind with dreams-of-summer joy! 

Hope you are all having a happy week! Don't forget - today is the last day to enter the $75 McAuley's Giveaway - you have until 9pm (Atlantic Standard Time)! Also, if you entered on the first day I posted, please check to make sure your entry is there! Blogger ate over 30 entries, though I know many of you have re-entered!

  1. Such a great outfit, love the stripes and pop of colour on your clutch. It is really annoying when you miss out on enjoying the first really warm spring day, however it is just the first of many!

  9. Completely love this dress in the blue and white. I want to go and buy it right now - it's okay to have the same dress in two colours right?
