Grey + Pastels

surely, you guys know by now that pretty much everyone that lives in an even moderately cold climate is ready for Spring, right? actually, i think everyone everywhere is ready for Spring. i’m right there with them. it’s just time. while the frost clings all the things outside, i play dress up inside and pretend like it’s 50 degrees with fresh flowers blooming all around. 
i’m hoping that it never becomes inappropriate for me to take a spring break trip. even though i’ve been off of an academic calendar for a couple years, i always have this idea in the back of my head that i should take a long weekend off of life and go somewhere warm in the Spring. it’s become more difficult since i don’t get a week off from all responsibility anymore, but Mike is taking care of that for me this year. he has 3 weeks off from his program so we’re headed south for a little getaway! i cannot wait. we’re going to stop in Raleigh to hang with my sister and her family for a few days, and then the plan (right now) is to drive down to Charleston, SC for a couple days. he was looking for warm(er) weather and to be close to the ocean and i love to explore a new city, so Charleston seemed like the perfect option. 
naturally, no less than 2 weeks before we even leave, i’ve already started thinking about what i should pack. it’s a sickness, i tell you. i’m just so excited to plan for a warmer climate! so i’ve been digging out all my light colored clothes and my favorite flats to put some outfits together and it’s got me tricked into thinking that i can wear them all now. so…this:

top | Old Navy
cardigan | Target
pants | Gap (similar)
flats | Target (similar)
bag | Rebecca Minkoff (similar)
necklace | Elisabeth Ashlie
