There is sunshine in these photos... and bare legs!

 



Zara Dress and Cardigan, Mango Belt, H&M shoes, Vintage clutch
I always admired April for the pretty glow she has in almost all of her photos. When I noticed the low, warm sun this particular late afternoon I knew I had my chance. I don't have the best lens to capture the light perfectly but I consider this a start. And I'm loving it!
The weather has been delightful the past week and I believe Spring is finally here to stay. In my mind, I am making plans that include yummy foods (BBQ tiiiime!), long walks, small getaways and ofcourse a lot of sunshine. But before the good life can start I have a million deadlines coming up in the next two weeks. Stress is building up here, folks! I can't wait for my Spring break!

Hope you all have a lovely week!

  5. Ahh, thank you! :) haha! I think you got the glow just perfectly, and the dress and cardi are so perfect for each other too - it looks really classical! We've been having really nice weather lately too (apart from the weekend) so I definately understand how you're feeling right now! Now you've mentioned it, I cannot wait for BBQ time haha! :D

  30. I've finally gotten to wear bare legs the past couple days because we have a freakishly early summer coming to Minnesota...and it's SO NICE. Love your pretty sunshine photos, and that pink dress look amazing in the warmer light.
