Is It Spring Yet?

Because there is so much snow outside and it seems that if we weren't getting snow, we were getting rain, I decided it'd be neat to do a photoshoot in a greenhouse! There's always plant life there! It's like spring was captured and preserved inside. Plus, it's indoors so no worries about being cold or having the weather mess things up. It's a perfect rainy day photoshoot location.

While the nursery didn't have too much yet since the season isn't in full swing, it was still nice to see some flowers and green. I've been really into coraly colors lately, so I was excited when I saw that this dress was on sale for only $17.50 from Ruche. It's very simple and sweet, so it's easy to accessorize with! It'll be perfect for the spring, whenever it finally decides to get here.

I also felt that the dress would go perfectly with my new coral lipstick by LORAC Cosmetics. I've been really into lipsticks lately, and I really love this one. It makes your lips feel so soft and it has SPF 15! I should do a post about all the lipsticks I use and love because there are quite a few! I would love to get some more colors from LORAC, though. I love how it makes my lips feel and I love that it gives my lips protection from the sun. I couldn't wait to wear it when I got it because the color is perfect for brightening up any day. It makes me feel a little better when the days are grey.

I would love to have a garden someday. I would want a lot of land so that I can plant fruit trees, too. I'd want to grow my own fruit and my own vegetables. I think it'd be great to just be able to go out into my yard if I needed some cucumbers or strawberries. I would also love to have a little field of my favorite flowers like sunflowers and daisies. The only thing I wouldn't like is all the bees it would probably attract.

I've had a pretty good weekend! I went on a couple adventures and also to a vintage/consignment shop. I also had a really successful Goodwill trip the other day when I was wearing this dress. I found a white cape for only $4. I have been wanting a cape lately, the kind with the armholes in it, and I finally found one without even trying! Perhaps this dress of mine is lucky! :)

  6. Another lovely outfit and i'm loving the idea of taking photos in the greenhouse. Let's just pretend it's summer already.
    I've never really worn coral colours but I do like the hint of mint green on your belt, they go great together. Maybe this is a combo I should think about.
    Also, such a cute necklace too!
