Polka Dot Power: Infinity Scarf + Tee + Boyfriend Jeans + Flats

Tuesday, March 25, 2014


Hello, party people!  For those of you who don't know I work for an animal welfare nonprofit organization.  Working for an NPO has been my dream for many-a-year, because I truly feel my calling in life has been to help our fine furry (and scaly, and feathery, and bald, and so on and so on) friends.  That may be one of the main reasons I have fallen so hard for Sow the Seed Boutique.  This online store's mission is to give back to their community by donating a part of their profits to a different charity each month.  Is there a sweeter feeling than getting to shop while helping a worthy cause at the same time?  Nah. ;)

Hellooo there and happy spring!  My birthday just so happens to fall on the last day of winter, but I've always felt like a spring baby.  I just love how the days are longer, all the stores start putting out their adorable flower pots, and the clothing gets flowier (AKA "comfier").  Speaking of flowy, this blouse has a real boho vibe, which is aligns quite perfectly with the rest of my springtime wardrobe.  What trends are you ready to bust out?

Prints-cess: Dress + Wedges

Hey there, hi there, ho there!  I've got a secret: my birthday is coming up in a few days.  It's a big one, too.  I'm about to turn a quarter of a century (that's 25, for those who are slow on the pickup).  I'm able to rent a car now.  That's about all that changes though, right?  I feel like I'm still really young, but I won't lie -- I'm totally starting to see my face age!!!  I feel like I have bags under my eyes and a few smile wrinkles I've never had before.  Oh geeze.  But every time I find myself examining those new lines just a bit closer in the mirror I remind myself that it's the beginning of my face map from years of laughter... and it's also a stern reminder to continue to use the SPF 70 that I'm such a fan of in the summer but lazy about during the rest of the seasons.  [Uh, Allie.  Hello.  You live in the desert.  There is no such thing as an off day for the sun here.  Get to usin' that sunscreen more regularly! End of self discussion]

I've always been such a "birthday person," whether it's celebrating my own b-day or someone else's.  I think it's nice to be reminded we each get our own personal holiday every year when we can be self indulgent and not be afraid to admit we should be our own #1 fans... Oh, and presents, too.  I won't fake that I don't semi-enjoy giving/getting gifts ;)

Hi, guys!  Did you hear the rumor going around?  Spring is about to be sprung!  ["Be sprung" ... Is that a dirty Sir Mix a Lot phrase that I totally just misused?]  Just a few more weeks days :)  Living in the perennially beautiful winter weather city of Phoenix, I am most certainly spoiled these days.  That's not to say I don't 100% empathize with you Northerners' cries for warm weather help though.  I was born in Ohio and lived there for 18 years, people.  I know the Winter Blues well.  I feel your pain, and I truly wish you many [allergy-free] weeks of springtime loveliness ASAP.

Get ready to bust out your sundresses.  I can just feel those 75 degree days waiting to bust out in your city!!
