What I Love About Spring

What I Love About Spring |Thoughts & Daisies Spring brings magic. The whole world seems to be happy. Everything takes on new life in the spring, literally and metaphorically.Spring is beautiful. Everything takes on new life in the spring, literally and metaphorically. Spring is my absolute favorite time of the year. The weather is fantastic not too cold and not so able to fry an egg on the sidewalk hot. The world turns green and pink and blue and yellow and basically every color all vibrant and pastel and it. Is. GORGEOUS.

Flowers

Once the flowers begin to bloom you know that spring has arrived. They pop up everywhere, seemingly overnight. They make the world colorful and I can’t help but randomly point out how beautiful they are no matter how many times I pass them.

Sun

When spring comes the sun gets warm and it stays out later and everything seems better. Once spring comes you know summer is right around the corner. Especially living in Ohio nine months of the year where the sun doesn’t seem to exist for about 8 of them. So when the sun is out for more than 5 seconds at a time it feels magical. Spring brings magic.

Driving with the windows down

One of my favorite things about spring is that it is the perfect time to drive around with the windows down. No need for A/C because the outside has cool crisp air. It is the moment that the inside of your car feels just as good as the outside so you have to roll down the windows and take it all in.

Everyone is in a good mood

The whole world seems to be happy. With the weather warming up and people actually being able to get their vitamin D intake they start to come out of their grumpy winter cocoons. Now people are actually saying hi as you walk past them and there are more smiles to go around.

 

What is your favorite time of the year??

Favorite Springtime Flowers

Spring is my favorite time of the year. The weather starts to be warm but I can still go outside without sweating the very second I open the door. The air even has a feeling of happiness. The plants grow buds and start flowering and everywhere you look something beautiful is starting to grow. I always think about Bambi during the springtime when all the animals are getting ‘twitterpated,’ and when Bambi first tries to smell the flowers and instead finds the skunk who he calls a flower. “He can call me Flower if he wants too.”

Now living in Ohio 9 months of the year spring has a whole new meaning. It means the snow is gone and I can actually go outside without freezing. Which means spring has gotten a whole lot more special because I actively anticipate it and can really see everything taking on new life after the winter. It’s beautiful.

My favorite thing about spring may just have to be all of the flowers that bloom. They start to take over everything and add so much color to the world.  And spring has the best flowers.

TULIPS

Tulips may be my favorite spring flower. When spring comes you can be certain my mom has tulips lining the rooms of our home. Tulips are said to signal the arrival of spring so once you see them you can be sure spring has officially come. (Take that groundhog.) They come in a gorgeous array of colors too. From pastel pinks to deep vibrant purples there is a tulip color for just about everyone.

IRIS

The Iris is a flower that has been linked back to the monarchy of Medieval times, particularly the French because they are a symbol of royalty and wisdom. Particularly because they are purple and historically purple has been a royal color because purple had cost more to produce as a dye because of its rarity in nature. My mom has an iris plant in our front yard and when it blooms it is stunning because the flower gets really big and full. I also love it for its purple color as purple is and has always been my most favorite color.

DAFFODIL

Daffodils are flowers that symbolize new beginnings and rebirth as they bloom right in the beginning weeks of spring. Daffodils have jumped up the rankings for me the past two years as they are flowers that bloom all over my campus in the spring and it is stunning to see them peaking out even in the strangest of places. Yellow is one of my favorite colors and these flowers just scream spring to me. I always think of the scene in Alice in Wonderland when they sing In the Golden Afternoon, the lines “there are dancing daffodils on the hillside” I always thought they were cute flowers.

Spring Dresses I Love

Spring is HERE! At least that’s what it looks like today anyway. For the first time since the start of 2019, I’m sitting outside writing this blog post. It could be warmer but I will take what I can get if I can actually sit outside without needing 12 layers. Now that the weather looks like it has taken a turn for the better I am getting excited to start wearing dresses.

With the weather getting warmer stores are putting their new looks up on their websites and I have been having a great time online window shopping. Here are some of the gorgeous pieces I have found so far that I would love to add to my spring wardrobe!

This smocked button down dress from Aerie is perfect to just throw on for a perfect spring day and I think it would be perfect for a day spent in San Diego or just down by the beach. It is flowy and I love the button detailing. I am a sucker for buttons.

Shop this dress >Aerie Smocked Dress<

This dress from HM looks gorgeous The polka dots againsts this red dress really sells it for me. Polka dots are so cute and make me think of spring. I can see me wearing this with my straw hat and white converse.

I don’t tend to wear outfits that have print on them but this lavender dress from Urban Outfitters would totally be an exception. I love the color, purple is my favaorite, and the flowers on the dress aren’t too overwhelming and once again there are BUTTONS. This would be a perfect dress for all those days you get up not wanting to try and put an outfit together.

This dress is from a shop called Christy Dawn that I found one day on Instagram. All of their dresses are gorgeous but they are on the pricier side so at the moment not something feasible on my college student budget but I can dream can’t I? This is the Daisy Dress and that alone almost just sells the dress for me. Imagine a daisy dress on thoughts and daisies, SO CUTE! I love the flowy sleeves of this dress and the slightly high low portion of the bottom and even more buttons. I don’t know how it could be more perfect.

This dress is also from Christy Dawn called the Jane Dress and it is the first dress I ever saw from this company that I fell in love with. I just want to have it, put my hair in a braid with that ribbon and go frolicking in a flower field, anyone else? The sleeves are the perfect length and the cutout on the back is such a cute detail. Not to mention IT HAS POCKETS. This midi dress is everything I could ever wish for in a dress and then you add buttons all the way down the back and it is pretty much my dream dress. It has that simplicity with a bit of flair and I just wish it was in my closet right this minute.

This last dress is from Target and can I just say Target has been stepping up their game in the clothing section the last few years. Pretty much every swimsuit I have is from here and now they are adding a lot more cute pieces to their collection and I am pleased.  I love this dress because it is totally something that can be dressed up or dressed down. Everyone needs a good black dress in their closet and this one is great. It has, surprise surprise, buttons the fitted bodice and flowy skirt add a feminine touch but I could totally see myself wearing this with some doc martens for a bit of an edgier feel.

If you couldn’t tell I have been really into the look of midi dresses.

Outfit of the Day- Spring

Since I have gotten home, the SoCal weather has been less than ideal. (Perfect Swimming weather where are you!?) But just in time for my family reunion, the clouds finally parted and out came this beautifully sunny 80 degree day. Which made it the perfect time to show off my Outfit of the Day. Spring (or Summer).

Comfy and Casual that can easily be dressed up when needed is my
 favorite type of outfit.
