Daisies for Spring


   Good Monday to you readers! I trust that you are back to your hectic schedules. I have quite a list of things to accomplish today, myself. Let's take a break out of our busy day and talk about clothes for a just bit, because there's a cute new top I want to show you. :)



   
   A couple of weeks ago when Mom and I were in another town, we dropped by a thrift store that we hadn't been in before. While browsing the shirts, this short sleeved knit hoodie caught my eye. That was a bit unusual, because I don't usually go for shades of red (though this is sort of orange). Something about its bright color and haphazard daisies looked so cute to me. 
  Needless to say, I bought it, and then wore it a few days later with my denim skirt and brown boots. The day I wore it ended up being a good day to try a hairstyle that I had been wanting to do for a while. With my cheery top and milkmaid braids I felt like a Swedish girl exulting in the coming of spring! See, there was even a rose that had opened to enjoy the sunny day with me.

So, are you enjoying the spring? Have you tried any new colors of clothing out lately?

  5. I love your hair!! Very cute outfit and I really wish I had your skirt! I had a shirt/jacket just like that but it is pink with strawberries all over! I was pretty sad when it didn't fit me anymore!

  6. I have rediscovered yellow recently. I didn't think it worked on me because of my fair complexion and blond hair, but I actually like it! Orange is great too :)

    I know Sarah already nominated you for a Liebster, but I nominated you again. See here: http://irelandrhea.blogspot.com/2014/04/liebster-award.html
