Visions of Spring

Sadly, the dude had a gnarly cold last week and mama didn’t escape its wrath. I’m out for the count and not feeling like doing anything much but lie on the couch. Ugh. As I lie here with my laptop and wait for the hubs to bring me my juice, all I can think about is getting outside and enjoying the beautiful spring weather that Florida is throwing at us right now. It’s supposed to be 80 degrees here today! Can you believe that?

It is officially time for me to start getting my spring wardrobe together and as soon as I’m up and running again, I plan on doing just that. I had a fabulous time viewing the fall collections at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week during our glorious NYC trip, but now that I’m home again, it’s all about spring for me! And after seeing the bevy of pristine white pieces that walked the runway in the spring collection shows, a new white frock is most definitely on my must have list. Here are a couple, both dream and reality, that have struck my fancy….

    I hope you feel better soon! I would love the have the first Alexander Wang dress you posted. It’s beautiful. If I weren’t as white as the dresses themselves, I would definitely spring for the Old Navy one.
