Why I’m Allowing Spring On My Mind

snake print midi skirtYou can mentally get yourself in trouble if you think about spring and warm weather too early during the winter months or maybe that’s just what you need- to think about spring. Winter Depression (also known as Season Affective Disorder) is a real thing and although I am not an anxious person I definitely get a little down during winter. The winter months just seem so long, they can start early and end late. I have no idea what to expect for Spring here in Salt Lake City since this is my first season here. In Memphis I knew 60 degree days were just around the corner. Here, I might have a few more months of snow.snake print midi skirt
A couple weeks ago I was getting more down than usual, I wanted to go home, Ohio or Memphis I’m not sure, I just wasn’t feeling as happy as usual. It was snowing day after day and I wanted to go on a trip. I wanted the boys to be able to run around in their swimsuits and play in the grass, swim in a pool! Knowing none of that is happening right now I decided to just pretend and let spring on my mind.

Any sunny day I had the attitude that it was warm and beautiful. I started looking at spring clothes and vacation spots. I created this little happy place in my head that I didn’t even realize it was only January 16th. But seriously, it’s only January 16th!? That ok though because I no have the right mindset. I have spring on my mind because it makes me happy. I’m allowing pops of color back into my wardrobe (aren’t these teal booties the perfect pop in this outfit), in fact, I didn’t even need a coat today!

The breakdown:

I haven’t added a breakdown to my blog posts in a long time. I like to break down my outfits and explain why I put the outfit together. I just got this skirt from Target and thought of so many ways I can wear it. Dark suede booties and a chunky sweater are perfect for winter and a graphic tee and sneakers will be great for spring.
