Let's Pretend It's Spring

Everyone ready for another edition of me pretending it's spring?! I cleared out the dining room so I would have makeshift stage for me to wear my next spring inspired outfit. No tights required! I got a few questions on how I got the lighting to work for my indoor photos. I really didn't "do" anything. Our house has ALOT of south facing windows with no trees in order to absorb heat in the winter. So the natural light in our house is slightly outrageous. No tricks of the trade to share here. This is one of my mom's skirts that I dressified. I think I'd really like to try it out as a nature intended as a skirt too. But I'll save it for another edition of Let's Pretend It's Spring! Just got my post title...

dress (or skirt) - mom's
belt - walmart

  1. I hear you about pretending it's spring... I've resorted to wearing spring pieces outdoors in the hope that mother nature will take a hint. So far it's not working...

    You look adorable btw, and I'm so jealz of all the lovely natural light your home gets! If that was the case for me, it would be spring year-round on my blog! xx

  5. I know! I'm so ready for spring too. I swear it just doesn't stop snowing here. Last week it was so warm too! And now just snow snow snow. The university is one giant puddle.

  7. Yay for spring outfits! Totally adorable...I LOVEEE that color blue on you. And you're so lucky that you have all that natural light. Our house is built the opposite, so that all of our windows DON'T directly get light. Which is for the best, since if it weren't it would be ridiculously hot in the house. But still, who wants to live practically when you could have lots of natural light instead?
