Springtime has finally arrived and I chose to welcome the season in my favorite Lilly Pulitzer “Sloane” maxi dress. I absolutely love the length and fit of this dress…and the material is perfect for a casual, fair weather day! My monogram necklace and Jack Rogers sandals were simple, but complimenting accessories to the bright, floral pattern of the dress.
There is something about the beginning of a new season that seems so magical to me. I love the idea of a fresh start, no matter when it may occur. Many of you may have noticed that I took an extended break from blogging (a month to be exact) to clear my head. I did not feel that it was fair of me to offer guidance about never settling and knowing one’s worth when I wasn’t even following my own advice! Over the duration of the past month I have been feeling unappreciated, overlooked, and simply put, not good enough in many facets of my life. I can’t be sure if it was the mani/pedi, beautiful weather, change in seasons, or rest and relaxation that changed my heart last week, but I left Raleigh on Sunday feeling completely renewed. I realized that in the process of caring too much, I was losing myself and forgetting that I am special too. So starting today, I will forget what’s gone, appreciate what still remains and look forward to what’s coming next.

Have a blessed Tuesday!
