SPRING TRANSITIONING. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Was planning on going all-mint green this year but that's a surprise for tomorrow :) Either way, safe from pinching with the forest green, eh? Remember my all-green shabang a few months ago? Ha, grubby finger-proof. This is the outfit I wore for thrifting at Scholarshop (3/9). I wore this ensemble for school before but didn't take outfit photos, but thanks to Alice as my photog, we perfectly caught the Golden Hour and the lighting was beautiful as it lit up the parking lot. Layering this flowy cocoon wrap over my lightweight cable knit sweater provides extra warmth and an interesting mixture of layers and textures. NEUTRAL + ABSTRACT PRINT + BOLD PANTS. Had the hardest time coming up with a title too, almost went with "Abstraction" before I thought of the lines on the cardigan like rocks and the pants like evergreen. This silver cuff bracelet also means a lot to me because it's a heartfelt gift from Alice, giving me strength to take each day hour-by-hour, and to remember that I always have loving people around to pick me up when the pain is too hard.

One more day until I head back to STL to finish off my college career and graduate (time flies so fast wth). That means primary objective has been shifted to stuffing my face full of the city's treats and reveling in the warm Spring. Meanwhile, almost done with the Hunger Games trilogy and can't wait to see the movie!

leg pop and prop green pants and heels you give me strength whole-ly aura splice site i just met you, this is crazy like a weird bug
Readers - how do you transition from winter to spring fashion?

Such a gorgeous outfit for St. Patrick's Day! =) I love the cream, taupe color paired with the forest green. Ooh, I love thrifting as well! I only went once before and got some very nice knitted cardigans and even a MinkPink sweater! I'm very excited for the Hunger Games movie as well... except, I haven't read the books yet. Oops. I definitely should though, huh? :) I'm scared my Hunger Games addiction will end up like my Harry Potter addiction! :o) Either way, I'm so stoked for it! The China Glaze Hunger Games nail polish collection has some pretty colors as well.

Loving your blog! =) I am a new follower, looking forward to reading your next post! <3

gorgeous outfit and smiles once again! :) the pants are such a gorgeous shade of green.

out of curiosity, what does the bracelet actually say? it must have a very meaningful message on it but it's hard to tell from the photos! :P
