Spring is showing her sweet, pretty self here in Denver. I hear birds out my window while I work and can smell the scent of new growth on the breeze while I enjoy the sunshine. I know that soon the trees will begin to sprout brave little buds and delicate blades of grass will begin their journey through the soil.
As the days start to warm up a bit I am drawn evermore to spring colors. When Shabby Apple asked me to pick out a dress of theirs…I knew I wanted something bright and cheery. It doesn’t get cheerier than a pale lemon dress. I am sometimes intimidated to wear yellow but when I do I am reminded that it is a fabulous color. I think the pattern of this dress really helps break up the color and adds more interest while keeping the yellow from being overpowering.
One shoe that everyone needs in their collection is a basic white sneaker. Especially being a mother, I need options that are practical, comfortable and stylish. A classic sneaker (especially in white) can be worn with a surprising variety of looks. I love to throw them on with a great pair of jeans but they look great paired with dresses and skirts as well. White goes with literally everything but probably my favorite color to wear with my sneaks is black.
Some days are just magical. I’m really not sure exactly what it is that makes them so; it’s just that everything feels right, and special, and perfect. The day I wore this look was one of those days. Sam and I were in New York so immediately I was enjoying myself. I wanted to feel chic strolling down Madison Ave. so, of course, I chose black and white. We hopped into a cab bright and early headed to Ralph Lauren. It was just outside of their store that we took these pictures.
There are three primary things about these pictures that I love; the first thing is that they were taken right after we swam in the open ocean with wild Spinner dolphins. This fact should explain my salty, scrunchy hair, tied into something resembling a knot, and lack of makeup. When on the ocean and swimming with dolphins I already feel beautiful and alive…who needs makeup? The second is the fact that they are unedited (except for adjusting the light a bit).
