Mixed Prints-Stripes and Checks

I am a huge fan of gingham shirts.  I would have one in every color if I could.  I think they are so cute!

I also love mixing prints, and this is one of my favorite combos.  I alsolove the color of camel, I think I would dress from head to toe in it every day (camel gingham…) if I could (would that look weird?)  I love how camel looks with pretty much every color.  It’s just awesome and versatile and I have a serious color crush on it.

Spring outfits are a funny thing.  It is still cold, a lot of days are still murky, but I am drawn to the shoes/clothes in my closet that remind me of warmer days.  Today was sunny and beautiful, but cold as could be. 

My boys had school off today and didn’t care at all that it was cold, they played outside all day with the neighbor kids.  At one point nearly every neighborhood kids was at my door asking me to buy their hand drawn pictures.  I could either pay them with money or candy.  Luckily I had a lot of candy (no money :)   They each left with some gumballs and I got some seriously amazing 4-9 yr old art.

I love doing a high bun/top knot in my hair.  First it means it is MUCH easier to do my hair, and it is a PLUS for it to be dirty, as it helps me put the bun together.  The other thing I like, is that my hubby loves it. It reminds me on a small scale of a 60s beehive.  Since I am convinced that the 60s and I would have been good friends, I love this look.

I got out my trusty favorite Espadrilles with lots of fun summer memories going through my mind as I laced them up.  It’s coming soon, warm weather.  March is in like a lion out like a lamb right?  In Utah it usually comes in like a lion and out like a tiger, the lamb part doesn’t come around until summer, but it’s coming.
