Efflorescence

I love the trees in the springtime, but I never noticed how short-lived some of them are! Some of the trees bloom and then within a couple of weeks are depleted of flowers and left with just the leaves. This spring has been a strange one. We had some springtime weather, then somewhat of a heatwave that felt like summer with temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s, then it went back down to normal springtime temperatures where it's cool and wet. Craziness.

Luckily, we were able to get some pictures with blooming trees! Spring and autumn are the best seasons partly because they have so many different colors. It's also nice to have temperatures that aren't incredibly uncomfortable.

I teamed up with SheInside again for this post! They sent me this dress that I had picked out, and I love it! It's really comfortable and I love that it's a light grey because it gives many options for remixing and accessorizing. I also love the mesh stripe towards the bottom! It's like a different kind of color/textile blocking. :) I really love the things I get from SheInside, and they have very attentive and helpful staff, too!

This dress allows for fun and somewhat statement-like accessories, so I wore my giraffe necklace. I love this thing. It's larger than most of my other necklaces and I love the gold and black combination. I also think that it being just the head of the giraffe makes it a little more bolder than, say, a tiny shape of a whole giraffe.

I hope all of my American readers had a good Memorial Day weekend! We had a party at our apartment, and it was really fun. We all sat out in our yard, had a fire, drank, snacked, and listened to music while enjoying the sun. It was pretty hot yesterday, and I ended up getting a little burnt from it. It was a really great day, though!

I always feel a little off after a long weekend. I start thinking that every day is the day before it. For instance, I thought today was Monday and tomorrow was Tuesday about 3 times today. It's nice to have a short week. I also have a short day on Tuesday, so I only had to go back to work for 4 hours today, then I had the afternoon off. It gave me time to clean up the aftermath of our party! :)

I put together some picks of mine that I am lusting after on SheInside's website. I love fun novelty prints, but I think the warm weather just makes me crave them even more, so I ended up picking items with summery and/or cheerful prints.

My favorite of these is by far the dress with the bomb pop print. There is nothing that screams summertime like the Bomb Pop ice cream. So full of nostalgia...and deliciousness. I also LOVE the hot air balloon print skirt. I love hot air balloons, for some reason. They're just so pretty and old-fashioned and whimsical. I also need to mention that beautiful black cascading high-low dress. It's so pretty and classy, but yet not too formal and conservative. It'd be perfect for a night out! All of these pieces are great, especially for summer. SheInside always has a million things that I want in my wardrobe! :)

  2. You look so pretty!! This dress reminds me of Taylor Swift for some reason. Also, did you dye your hair? It looks redder. (I love it, by the way!)

    I love that you love the changing seasons as much as I do! I like seeing how everything slowly changes. <3

  3. This whole outfit is just so pretty. I love the little see through netted strip on the skirt area.
