Seven Things to Love About Spring

Yesterday (at precisely 12:57 p.m., I'm told) we officially crossed into spring! I was in the best mood all day. It's no secret that this winter has been brutal, and I couldn't be more ready for sunshine and all the wonderful things that the warmer seasons bring. Here are some of my favorite things about spring:

things to love about spring

1. Fresh flowers. I love picking up cut blooms for my apartment, passing all the lovely gardens in my neighborhood, and just being surrounded by things more beautiful than bare trees and brown grass. 

2. Bare legs. I'm ready to retire my tights and leggings in favor of shorter hemlines. These J. Crew shorts are a warm weather staple in my wardrobe. 

3. Longer days. More evening sunlight means pleasant evening runs. My neighborhood is full of runners and walkers. It's fun to see the community stop hibernating!

4. Baseball season. Go Reds! 

5. Dining (and drinking) alfresco. Spring begins my mad hunt for the best biergarten. I got a little spoiled in Paris with the adorable cafes with outdoor seating on every block. 

6. Open-toed shoes. I'm ready to retire my boots for a long time. Bring on the sandals and fun pedicures. 

7. Spring cleaning. My apartment could use a top-to-bottom fresh start. It's also a great time to donate wardrobe pieces I no longer love, making room for the new things I'm bound to find. 

What's your favorite part of spring?



  1. bring on the sandals!!!!! i am so ready to ditch my boots! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  2. I was so excited when I realized we were already in spring. I need to buy colorful flowers to put in my house and do my spring cleaning.


  3. I am so ready for flip flops and pedicures....speaking of which....I need one so badly!! Love that Butter color :-)

  4. Love the list! I played baseball growing up, so I'm always partial to the start of the season (Go Jay's!), but after the winter we've had here in Canada, I'm most looking forward to the sun and warmth! Anything else is a bonus!



Fancy seeing you here.
