{Lilac = Spring}

It truly feels like Spring today. It's even above 50 degrees! Do you understand how exciting that is? Yesterday I was shopping around & noticed more lovely Spring themes in stores throughout Omaha. One color that I noticed a lot of is my very fave....lilac.
I love lilacs; they & peonies are definitely my favorite flowers
{due to their enticing scents & beautiful colors}.
So, when I think of Spring, I think of these two lovely blooms. Well, you can imagine my happiness at discovering these lilac-colored items...

{Both from J.Crew}

{A purple dress from Old Navy}

{Also Old Navy}

I hope that wherever you are, you're experiencing a little bit of Spring, too! And if not yet, sometime very soon. Have a great weekend!

I'm so ready for Spring:)

yes, the same with my bf. I don't think he's been in a super serious relationship before either. He's been too consumed with undergrad, grad, and law school. We've been dating about 6mos. And you're right, the honeymoon phase does end, but it doesn't mean the relationship does as well! I'm sure y'all will work through it and I as well! Hang in there girl. Lord knows I am. LOL:)

LOVE the purple!

Sara Christine said...

Purple is HIGHLY overrated in my opinion. Pink gets all the glory, but purple can be so stunning. LOVE that lilac JCrew dress.

ps. Thank you for reading my blog! Sorry it's taken so long to comment back on yours. I LOVE your blog title! :)

Eeeek! I want to wear that J. Crew bridesmaid's dress to a wedding I'm going to in a few weeks, but I'm a little concerned that I might match the actual bridesmaids (this is purely my mind going nuts, however). So gorgeous!

Kate said...

I am bookmarking the Old Navy top right now!

I love that first dress from J.Crew, even though it is technically for bridesmaids I am considering getting it for fraternity banquet this spring! So pretty! And that Old Navy top is so great!

I am in love with lilac. Thanks for these Spring Time Lovelies! Looks like I need to head over to Old Navy.

Lol...to funny, I just ran into Old Navy today and bought both the dress and blouse.

They fit so well & the lilac colour is a bonus.
