you can never hold back spring

...Spring ahead or fall behind...

Spring is in the air! Today's post was inspired by the Tom Waits song below ( I highly encourage you to listen to it) and this adorable post by Daring Darling Delight. I just discovered her blog and love it!
I've had these orange tights since fall and had never worn them. I guess I just didn't know what to wear them with. In the aforementioned post, I read that she took her old tights and cut them into stockings. I immediately knew what I had to do! Such a no brainer, but really, this would have never crossed my mind ;o. The clogs are a recent find. I actually saw them a few weeks ago and had to pass them up (I was short on $). To my surprise, they were still there last week! There was no way I was leaving the store without them again. Such a satisfying purchase I tell you!
That's about it. I'm going to have a giveaway in a few days. Trust me, you want to enter this one! So make sure to come back to see "owl" the goodness I have in store :D

  20. Love the knee-highs/shorts combo, and the hat too! Never mind - the whole outfit is fantastic. Usually I consider red more of a fall/winter colour, but I feel like it's working for spring!
