Maybe Winter, Maybe Spring?

I know that a lot of you are experiencing the polar vortex and/or have been living in the extreme conditions of Chiberia, but here in Texas, we're dealing with a different extreme. Now, no one get jealous or anything but it was 80 degrees yesterday ;)  But here's the crazy: it was snowing just a few days before that.  Go figure.

Aside from my sinuses being completely over (or under, rather) this changing weather, I just don't even know where we are, seasonally.  We're stuck somewhere between winter and spring, or fluctuating between the two, daily.  I know, poor me, spring has come early, blah blah.

You're right.

But still, I have to wake up extra early to catch the weather channel every morning… it's hard guys.

But besides all that whining I've been thinking about clothes and, like the weather, I'm also kind of split, ya know.  I'm not ready to get over winter quite yet but there are some pretty spring things popping up.

Ah, see, this post is actually tying together!

01. Cross-body Bag  /  02. Felt Hat  /  03. Silk Blouse  /  04. Sleeveless Top  /  05. Inside-out Bag  /  06. Nail polish  /  07. Lipstick  /  08. Brogues  /  09. Leather Shorts  /  10. Booties

And now I'd like to introduce you to the beautiful Ashley of Rainstorms and Love Notes.  You've probably read her blog before but in the rare case that you haven't, you are in for a treat!  And I actually mean that last bit quite literally because, well, her recipes look wonderful!  Also, you'll probably want to read her love story.  I'm pretty partial to a good love story and hers definitely delivers!  Now, get to know a bit more about Ashley...

Tell us a bit about you/your blog.
Rainstorms and Love Notes is a lifestyle blog where I share new recipes, write about life and love, and talk about my obsession with binge-watching TV shows and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

If you were a super hero, what powers would you have?
I've always wanted to be able to read people's minds!  Although, I may hear something that I'd rather not know…

What is one item on your bucket list?
I'm dying to go to the hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland to watch the Aurora Borealis from a glass igloo.
