Hello friends! I’m so thrilled to be typing up this post right now! Seriously, you have no idea. So much has been going on lately that I literally have not had a scrap of energy to get photos taken let alone edit and type and all that jazz. But oh, how I’ve missed it so. Taking even just a little time away (albeit for totally legit reasons) really made me remember how much I love this blog and it’s role in my life. I appreciate it and all it’s become, and each of you that read it so very much. So, thanks.

Spring is a time of transition, in so many ways. We start seeing a little sun here in Seattle and get all excited and buy a lovely yellow floral dress and then panic when we realize that it will require tights for the current temp. Ugh. I can’t wait to wear this dress over the summer with bare legs and sandals when the days are long and wonderfully directionless and my only limitation is that other friends have to go to work. I’m toying with the idea of getting a summer job to keep myself busy and to earn a little more fun money, but we’ll see. For now I’m still wearing tights with my dresses and trying to find a decent pair of sunglasses. I’ll be sure to let you know when conditions improve.

Oh! Check out the amazingly gorgeous tassel necklace I have on. It’s part of a beautiful collection of jewelry from Marrin Costello Designs. If you haven’t checked out her jewelry before you seriously should. Each piece is more gorgeous than the last and this is the first of a few posts where I’ll be sharing some pieces I selected from her current line. I love this long tassel because it’s a beautiful neutral gold and goes with just about every outfit. It’s a great way of adding a little sparkle without going seriously overboard.
