It's hard to believe that April begins this weekend, it will officially be spring soon even though the weather has already been magnificent these last few weeks! I would love to have this kind of weather year round-who wouldn't love 80 degrees with little to no humidity??

I've been trying to figure out my closet here lately, I'm just not sure what to wear! I love flips flops but I don't feel it's time just yet to break them out with everything and when exactly do we start wearing spaghetti strap/sleeveless tops/dresses? So I've been opting for skinny jeans with the bottoms rolled up a couple of times and chunky heels, paired with some tops that show a little skin. My legs are in no condition to be in public just yet lol

So there are the cropped pants that are perfect for spring, especially if you're not ready to bare a lot of leg yet either. ;) They can be paired with flats, heels; blazers and cardigans. I saw a few while on my mini vacay in Atlanta. Express, The Limited, and Zara had several affordable pairs if you decide to start shopping for your closet.

Here's a few of my favorite cropped outfits:
love the polka dot cropped pants

j. crew neon azalea eyelet cropped pants

need more cropped pants...they are perfect with heels

What has everyone else been wearing, do you feel caught in the middle with your closet like me? What are you favorite ways to wear cropped pants?

Random Saturday

This morning, after doing a little cleaning, I decided to kick back and search my On Demand. You'll never guess what I found on "Vintage MTV"....ummm The Hills!!! My Saturday has been made! :)

While enjoying Season 3 of the Hills, I was comparing my life (or wanna be life maybe) to Lauren, Lo's and Audrina. What girl hasn't? I discovered that even though I thought I was most like LC...I am most definitely more like LO, and my BFF is comparible to LC. I was a little saddened as this, but then realized...I can be "friends" with LC lol

Hope everyone else is having a wonderful, sunny Saturday! I'm about to hit the trails with my version of LC :)

LC Lauren Conrad Collection

Lauren Conrad just posted her new favorite Kohl's piece that is in her spring collection. I own the original shirt design that she made; it is a staple with my work wardrobe, especially when paired with a blazer. (photo: )

I just received Kohl's coupons in the mail this week and to say I am excited is an understatement! It couldn't be better timing with Lauren's new spring collection out in stores and online (click here to view the collection).

I decided to list my personal favorites (especially ones that I will be purchasing this weekend). What are your favorites?

Spring is inching closer, and I'm definitely ready for this cool weather to move on out of here! This week's Thing I love features Spring :) Enjoy!

What do you love about Spring?

Easter (this picture made me giggle)

Easter Candy (peeps are my favorite and I thought this Easter cupcake filled with cotton candy and topped with Bunny Peeps were too cute-something I may try for the family get together this year)
Cotton Candy Easter Treats

Pastels (I love pastel pants right now, Gap has a great selection this Spring)

Nailed It

Polished nails have always been in, but they're coming back with a splash-of color. I was never one to color my nails, it was either a classy french or clear coat. Slowly, I have come around to adding some color to my fingers and I'm having a lot of fun with it; however, I have to keep it professional working in a professional environment. So how can you stay in style without going over the top?? Here are a few of my favorite colors and a few little designs I find suitable for the office.
What are your favorites?

peachy I have been on the hunt for this color, it's great for spring and summer
 Instead of a traditional clear and white manicure, try colors in the same hue family.

Pretty nail polishTry a suttle design on one nail, instead of all of your nails. Keep it simple, I like the tiny polka dots on the ring finger here
Matte Nail PolishMatte nails are my new favorite polish. I've been searching for a color that I really like (so far, purple has made my list).

And if you must have fun nails, save it for the weekend; besides, a couple of days is about as long as they need to last anyway ;) Here are a few I would like to try:

Pink Panther
cute nail polish:)
