When it comes to those days that sometimes feel like spring and then sometimes feel like winter again, I get anxious for the warm weather to be here to stay. I do like having a little preview though and it helps me remember to enjoy my boots and sweaters while I can. This is the softest, most comfy cardigan I own and I just love it. The neutral colors make it super easy to style and the flowy front adds a little extra detail to elevate any simple top and jean combo. These jeans are also a favorite of mine. They're super stretchy and have just the right amount of distressing to make them on trend without showing too much. Plus they're hubby approved, which is always a bonus. I love adding ankle boots to an outfit to give it just a little something different. Most of what you see nowadays are outfits with knee high boots and, while I love that (especially over the knee styles) I may love ankle boots and booties even more. They are just a little more sassy or sweet (depending on the color and style) and show off your legs a smidge better than taller boots. Which can be good for us shorties.

Living in Missouri, we get plenty of those spring preview or "fake spring" days. While I love them, it hurts just a little when the forecast shows cooler temps again. I long for the days when we can get outside and let the boys run off all the extra energy they've accumulated over the winter months. They have an open playroom in the basement full of toys, a playhouse, game table and trampoline so they get plenty of exercise. But, there's just something different about being outdoors that can wear a kid out. And I am so ready for that. Late last week when we had some really gorgeous temps, the boys and I went on a walk down our road. They love to go down to the railroad tracks and see if there's a train, skipping, jumping or kicking a bottle filled with rocks the entire way. It gets them plenty exhausted by the time we get back home and the fresh air and sunshine always do me a world of good. So, yea, I'm ready. In the meantime, I'll take these last few days/weeks of cooler weather to get as much wear out of my favorite layering pieces as possible. Linked below are a few similar options to the outfit I'm wearing above (the earrings are exact). Have a blessed weekend!!
