What I Wore {A Spring in my Step}

Today marks day 1 of Spring Break 2013.
Can I get a big HIP HIP HORRAY and a victory dance!? 
I don't think there is anything better than having spring break with sunny, 50-60 degree days, where kapris and sandals are a must, and no coats are needed. Now that's my kind of weather.  
I don't need a vacay to Florida. Give me happy weather and I am a happy camper.

There's just one problem. 
The weathermen/woman are kinda crushing my dreams of having the ideal spring break this year by forecasting snow and temps in the mid 30s. Err. Excuse me. It's March 27. Am I wrong? A big contrast from last years 80 degree weather at this time, wouldn't you say?

I guess we just have to roll with crazy Michigan (and other places 'roud the world) weather. 

Despite the fact that there are still flurries of snow, and the temperatures feel like we are still in February, I refuse to dress like we are caught up in the middle of winter.
That's my cue to bust out the bright colored cardi's, floral prints, and get a spring in my step. 
My favorite newest pair of shoes: my Tom knock-offs. They really do look like the real thing (but for a fraction of the cost) and they deceive people thinking they are the real deal all the time. Airwalk via Payless is who we can thank.

A pop of magenta hear, with dash of springy flowers here, topped with an emerald green belt makes this crazy weather almost bearable.
I guess I'll just have to wait another month or so for kapris + sandals. When that time comes, I'll be the happiest person around.

Are you impatiently waiting for spring to make its move as well, or are you a winter condition lover?
