Happy March! Kali Sarakosti!

Took a drive down Kirby Drive the other day on the way to the Rodeo, and all the lawns along the way were completely in bloom! Pinks, whites, purple. Lent has started, the sun sets later… Spring is here!

I actually did these looks for Valentine’s Day, but when you think about it, the color scheme associated with that holiday are popular amongst floral choices. Pinks roses, purple violets, just like the flower tour down Kirby!

Last week, the weather dipped into the 30’s and the next couple of days will be only up to the 50’s, not uncommon, but definitely not the norm for this time of year. I love those late spring cool fronts, gives me one last chance to wear a darkish lip and actually feel the color goes with the weather. Not to mention the dark clouds, ayee… I’m ready for some sun!

This next look was so fun to do because it reminds me of my MAC days – fierce, fun & bossy. I decided to do a wing and add a pop of fun pink on the lips, an oldie but a goodie. It said Valentine’s Day, but also, “Hey Spring, where ya at though?”

Normally I’ll have 2 Easters to debut a floral or pastel color outfit, but this year I had only one. Unfortunately it was a hot and sticky Easter (thankfully not as hot and miserably sticky as last year’s); fortunately Pasxa was early enough in the season this year that although it packed some heat, there was a nice spring breeze that cooled us all off as we sat outside and celebrated the holiday with lots of lamb and lots of wine. *salivates*

Earrings : “Sophee” Kendra Scott – rose gold

Steve Madden espadrilles “Elody” (DSW)

Espadrilles make me jump for joy and are THE epitome of summer/springtime shoe.

Love a braid crown for warm days

Top : Stitch Fix || Bottoms : H&M Twill shorts

I’m normally not a fan of flowy tops (they make me feel large and shapeless) but this is perfect for the seasonĀ and my gal-pal Kristen picked it out for me.

Kept makeup very light. My parents have been hosting Greek Easter for an eternity, and as their offspring, we’re expected to help. Which means, there’s a lot of running around trying to be co-hostesses with the mostest(-esses).
