Spring Has Sprung (Finally)


Alas, there is light at the end of the long, cold tunnel known as winter. I feel like I’ve been saying this nearly every other day lately, but the weather here in New England has been funky. I’m talking it’ll go from 40 degrees to 80 degrees real quick. One day it’ll be warm and bright, and the next dreary and grey. But finally the warm and bright days are outweighing those that are dreary and grey signifying that spring is here to stay. (It only took until nearly May for that to be the case but wtv) 


The sheer excitement I feel for this cannot be captured in a blog post. Of course I’m ecstatic to be able to pack away the bulky sweaters and lighten up my wardrobe. I mean who doesn’t love pulling out skirts, sandals, and off-the-shoulder tops after months of your skin not seeing daylight? For that fact alone I’ve been bubbling. However this spring reset is great beyond that reason. Here are a few more:

HAPPIER & ENERGIZED
Spring fever was hitting me hard towards the end of winter, since it kept lingering. Because of that, this finalized transition into spring has been extra sweet. I genuinely feel happier and more energized. Heck, because of this I felt motivated enough to focus some energy on my favorite hobby of blogging (which as you’re aware has been put on the back burner based on my posting pattern) by having a mini OOTD shoot and making a post from it. So that’s something!

SPRING CLEANING
This may be my favorite part of spring. As it is, I make it a point to frequently have huge clear-outs and stay on-top of organization; however this habit feels much more appropriate and accepted during this season.


WINDOWS CAN BE OPENED
Everything is better natural: natural lighting, natural makeup, natural airflow. There’s just nothing like having the windows open as you’re spring cleaning and having the fresh floral air circulating through the house. It’s so satisfying and refreshing after a stuffy winter to open everything up. This is also great during Sunday drives!

MORE HOURS IN THE DAY
After a dull winter, the sun making a longer appearance in the day is greatly appreciated. While “Spring Ahead” can be a bear adjusting to from a sleep perspective, having the sun set closer to seven makes it all worth it. The days feel longer making for a more inspired, motivated, and productive Molly! Are you the same way?


FLOWERS & PLANTS
Spring is the season of rebirth- flowers bloom, plants sprout, leaves turn green. Brighten your home with those new blooms, and revamp your diet with fresh fruits and veggies! After all spring is the ultimate time to hit the reset button. Make like the plants, and start over!

PERFECT TEMPERATURES
For the longest time I was like a broken record saying fall was my favorite season; however I’ve determined both autumn and spring are equal in my book now. I relish the transitional seasons for the moderate weather. Those in between temperatures are prime for styling outfits and overall are the most comfortable. Utter perfection!


The temperature the other day was “utter perfection” making for the ideal shopping weather. I was able to break out my favorite pastel pants, ballet flats, tasseled bag, and floaty off-the-shoulder top for my day on the town. I couldn’t have been happier to flit around from store to store in such a springy get-up, while buying season-appropriate attire (anyone up for a haul?) Shop this spring look below:

Lots of love,
