Outfit // Spring Tease

Well, friends, here we are: I am officially on spring break! It has been a good day, I'd say. Classes were easy and I think generally things have "worked out" for me today. Do you ever have days like that? I feel like I do every week or every couple weeks, and I really try to notice and appreciate those small things for what they are. Isn't that what life is about?

I am definitely looking forward to tomorrow, when I will have my usual Friday morning to myself, and I want to use it to make a game-plan for the rest of my break. I really want to make good use of this time, doing going things for myself and giving myself some well deserved rest. I am definitely going to need all the energy I can get in April, and I think some down time over my school break will be wonderful for my soul. After my spring break, there are only two school/work weeks and then Dai and I are off to Japan! Crazy!
Can't. Get. Enough. Of. These. Sandals. Go to Target, now. I promise you won't regret buying the comfiest sandals ever.

In the meantime, I am really hoping it starts to warm up soon. Last week, and especially last weekend when these photos were taken, was such a tease. It has been gloomy and rainy all week, with just the sun peeking out every once in a while. Hoping all of that will clear up so that the weather can be wonderful for my time off and for my family's visit.
I think I am ready for dress season to be upon us again! Dresses are by far my favorite (jeggings are definitely a close second) and I am thinking that I may need to treat myself with a few new ones for this spring season and for my trip. I really love the bright blues of this particular dress and it saw my through a great summer last year! I am hoping to get into skirts as well, but I just always find them kind of difficult to style on my body. They either hit at a strange spot or the top that is paired with them needs to be tight around the midsection to look good, and that's not something I am really comfortable with.

Any suggestions for what to pair with my maxi skirts this season (& skirts in general)?

I'm just a happy girl on this fine Thursday and can't help myself from rambling on and on. Although, maybe that's what I do here every day ;)

You are one of the most beautiful and honest people I have ever followed via a blog. I always leave your blog feeling like I know you so well. I love the dress - and the way that style looks on you. Can't wait to hopefully see a whole bunch of new dresses for the season?

You are seriously so beautiful from head to two girl! Enjoy your spring break, and I did see those sandals at target. I didn't try them in though because I assumed the separate ring around the big toe would be uncomfortable but I guess not! I'll have to go try them on. Don't you just love target? So,e of the best finds ever there.

You are so sweet! I always cherish your thoughtful comments. Definitely getting ready to break out my dresses for the season and hopefully add some more to my collection! They are guiltily my favorite thing to shop for hehe.

Thank you! Yes, I totally agree. I actually don't think I have purchased a pair of sandals from Target before, but I have definitely seen some cute ones in the past. They are pretty great this season too.

Aww thank you Karissa! I'm so glad you made your way here! Hope to see more of you around these parts :)

Thanks, Danica! I have never been fond of sandals with a ring around the toe, but these ones don't bother me at all! Also, I am usually a size 8.5, but these don't come in half sizes, so I went with the 9. I think that was a good choice because the straps aren't tight anywhere and don't cut into me. So, if you're in between, I recommend sizing up! That could just be me though. Target is awesome. I think that is a universal truth haha.
