hello friday! we meet again. and a big hello to march. i’m ushering in a new month in sunny florida so not certain if it’s coming in like a lion or a lamb. all i know is that winter is on its way out. soon the birds will be chirping, the bees buzzing and the earth will renew itself once more. love this time of year when the trees burst into blooms. 

today’s ootd is all about those transitional days when it’s not too hot and not too cold. this paloma pink sweater with a white underlay creates the illusion of layering without the bulk. it looks fantastic over slim-fitting gingham trousers and pointy-toed flats (old, similar here) for a polished weekend look.

margaritas go hand in hand with mexican inspired food. so lime shrimp bowls fit the bill. and i love bowls of any kind as you can get as creative with them as you want. mr. style likes his with rice. mine is with quinoa. then add or subtract as many veggies as you want (or have in the fridge).
