Reaching for Spring - a Little Too Early!

It's way to early to start switching out my closet, huh?

These past few days of sunshine and temps in the 70s have completely, 100% spoiled me and I can't WAIT for spring to get here!  So much so that I aaaaalmost started switching out my closet last night.
(thank goodness because it's chilly again today!)

Last Saturday the blonde and I went hiking up Pinnacle Mountain here in Little Rock - first time for me!
This is one of the photos I took from the top - isn't Arkansas beautiful?!  :o)

Anyhoo - here are a few of the things I'm super excited about this spring:

Light, airy sweaters are everywhere this year and make a great "transitional" piece...

Anthropologie has these beauties to pick from!

This one is my favorite of all favorites - I love the length and asymmetrical hemline!

This one is not really "airy" but it is short sleeved and I love the style.

Even in summer I freeze in restaurants, so I like to keep a wrap or shrug on hand and this one from Gap would definitely go with anything.

I can't wait for the return of "effortless stye" - straw hats, scarves, oversized t-shirts, shades.
Oh. so. cool.

Maxi dresses are coming back - yet again.

The blonde purchased this one at Anthropologie last week - it is ADORABLE!

I've had MY eyes on this one...

It seems like maxi dresses are never long enough for me, so I like the twist that's coming this spring - maxi skirts.

This is my pick!

It looks cuter on the model - love the way she has it styled.
Easter is always unpredictable in Arkansas - it can be mild to below freezing, so this is definitely in the running for me - it can easily be styled to fit the weather!

But what I'm most looking forward to this spring - the return of lazy days reading outside!
