Favorite Warm Weather Things

The wind here is whipping through at rapid speeds, but the sun is shining and I'm getting more and more excited for warm weather (that sticks around for a while.)  I have a few favorite things that always remind me of spring and the big warm up.

Mint green is my favorite spring color.  I think really green is my favorite color all year long, so each season is just a different shade of green.  I also love switching to white wine.  I love red wine when it's cold out and white wine when it's warm out.  I will allow a little cross over, but not much.  My springtime outfit involves a maxi skirt or dress.  They are hands down the most comfortable articles of clothing.  And Magnolia trees in the spring time are just amazing.

A perfect spring day for me would require coffee and a book early in the morning.  Once I'm up and ready for the day, I would get myself a shake from One Lucky Duck and whatever food I find appealing in Chelsea Market.  Justin & I would either go to a baseball game or a rooftop bar and enjoy some sunshine.  Dinner would be fish tacos followed by dessert from Magnolia Bakery and then bed... early.

I love the changing of the seasons and everything that comes with it.  I asked Becca from Becoming Adorrable if she would play along with me today.

Her favorite spring color is bright green.  Although she gets horrible allergies, she still loves white daisies (but keeps her distance).  Her spring outfits include sandals, tank tops and a few fun lipstick shades.  I wish it was warm enough here for tank tops.  Her go to drink as the weather warms up is a Malibu Pineapple cocktail.  I've never tried this, but it's on my list for this weekend.  I'm always game for something new.

When I asked her what a perfect April Saturday looked like, here was her answer:

After sleeping in, I take my sweet time fixing my hair and applying makeup, go out to lunch with the hubs, and get some shopping done.  Of course this means a trip to Sephora and Ulta.  Then we'd have dinner at the Olive Garden and I end the night dancing with friends at our local bar.

I also asked if she would make you all a playlist with some of her favorite warm weather songs.  The first song is one of my favorites.

I have loved getting to know Becca better and you should probably do the same.  My favorite posts to get your started include Why I Belong in the SouthWhy I Rescue (which you will probably need Kleenex for) and I was super excited to find out my Unicorn name when I read What's in a Unicorn.  Plus, I think she has one of the cutest "about me" pages I've seen on a blog.  I love reading about her adventures as a newlywed and I love how she incorporated her new last name into her blog title.

Here are the places you can find Becca.  Go say hi!


  1. I love spring things. I'm sad my ankles are so cold today they're almost blue. Get yourself together, Mother Nature!

    I always switch to sauvignon blanc from pinot noir and cabernet. It's the right thing to do.

  2. I love that mint maxi skirt! So cute.

  3. It was lovely meeting Becca and that IS one cute about page!

  4. I legit just told someone else I wish I could live in maxi skirts/dresses in the warm weather months. I wish I could make them work appropriate!

  5. I love summer/spring/warmer weather appropriate drinks as well! And yess Magnolia trees are so beautiful when they're blooming!

  6. I'm so glad maxi season is finally upon us. I lived in them last weekend. So comfy.

  7. GIMME ALL THE MINT! And all the white wine - Reisling, Moscato or Peach Wine. ALL OF IT.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
