Floral Formula for Busy Days

After the winter months dragged by, I feel like the speed of time has tripled in April. There are less than two weeks remaining, and I feel like I'm not even close to doing everything I planned to do. I know that life is more than checking things off a list, but for me those lists are what keep me motivated and keep me organized.

Part of what has made this month feel so frenzied is all the GOING. My homebody tendencies strengthen with age, and the combination of events, showers, and family visits (all good things, mind you) that have filled up April's calendar have worn me out.

This outfit has been a perfect one for a busy month. The combination of pull-on skirt, tee shirt, and light outer layer (in this case, chambray...big surprise) is one that I reach for again and again when I have to go quickly from one thing to the next. In this case, I went from a busy day at work to a long car ride to visit my in-laws. It has just the balance of comfort and polish that I need.

Are you a homebody like me or is a full social calendar more your jam?

  3. I was about ready to comment on the cute yellow shoes with the skirt, and then my eyes skipped right to that flourless chocolate cake with cayenne pepper from four years ago.

  4. I've become a total homebody too. Especially in terms of sleep. Remember when you could stay up playing with friends until like 4 in the morning??? Yeah now I'm all tired and ready for bed at like 10pm haha. Anyways love the outfit! <3

  9. Thank you! You should pull it out of hiding :) Life IS crazy and that's how I've felt this month--I'm never there! But it's definitely good to have a balance of both going out and staying in (I'm just doing ALL the going out this month it seems).

  11. That specific floral print has always been one of my favorites! I would say I'm much more of a homebody too. I love time with family, but we're in the middle of about a month long stretch of not having to go out of town for anything and not having any out of town guests here and I'll admit it's been nice just to do things as a little family of three! :)

  12. I would totally wear this outfit! I love the layering and the blue on blue, and the pop of bright color in the shoes is perfect!

  13. Thanks Jess--I love it too, the colors in it go with everything springy it seems. That sounds really nice! It can be fun to be busy doing lots of fun things, but I'm equally excited about a stretch of time where there's nothing on the calendar too!

  14. Thanks Rebecca! I love how spring is the perfect time for light layers like this, and I'm always more in the mood for brights this time of year too :)
