What if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today!

Happy Groundhog Day!
I'm sure you've all heard the good news, Phil didn't see a shadow this morning, so that means it will be an early Spring.

Of all the silly holidays in existence, (Arbor Day, Presidents Day, Zucchini Day,Valentines Day) Groundhog day might be my favorite because there is a rodent predicting if I will get an early spring, or have to endure six more weeks of winter. (Who doesn't love rodent weathermen?) And then there is Bill Murray. Much like many of the beloved Christmas movies that I'll happily rewatch every year, Groundhog Day gets the same treatment. Because I think it is brilliant and funny, and a reminder that it doesn't matter what you have, or what you know that will make you a better person, but how good you are towards others that matters the most.

Early Spring
Well early spring, I am ready for you! Yellow Week is certainly a testament to that.

The navy with yellow accent makes a beautiful color combo. Also, very springy.

You look very springy this morning (is that even a real word). I love anything nautical looking and this is right up my alley!

Fashion Therapist said...

I'm totally with you on Groundhog Day...it's the Christmas Story of February. :)

Also, I never fully understood why not seeing his shadow would mean early spring. Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Katie Aman said...

I LOVE your classy shoes lady! This is beautiful-so basic, but so lovely :)

Courtney Erin said...

I love the thrifted Aldo purse - I don't think I've ever seen a thrifted purse as snazzy as that!

You've made my day by telling me that spring is going to come early! Yippee!! Yellow is great on you and I am with you on Groundhog Day. Love it!

Frances Joy said...

I love this outfit. Like, so many levels of love. The preppiness, the nautical vibe, the color.

Rachel said...

Great shoes! I don't think Groundhog Day has a lot of bearing here in FL, but it's still nice to think things are going to get (even) warmer. :)

Ali said...

Your last picture has such nice boken! And such pretty spring colors I can't wait to see outside. :D

AHH BILL I love Bill Murray. Ahh, the many faces of Bill. He is a wonderful one.

Your shoes are gorgeousss! and of course your yellow is great. ;) You have so many lovely yellow things!

Alex Elizabeth said...

Today's look is definitely making me think of spring :) This is such an amazing mix of neutrals with the lovely yellow. I didn't get dressed again today, but I swear I'm wearing yellow tomorrow!

oh, bleeding hearts, how i love them...you are making me miss my garden! i'm excited to start planning this year's flowers.

Anne said...

You definitely look like you're ready for spring in this outfit! I really like the tights and shoe color combo, and of course all of the yellow. I hope Phil was right this year!

Gracey said...

This outfit makes me so happy. It really does feel like spring. You look just wonderful and I'm totally loving those shoes and that ring. They are the perfect touches.

Kavery said...

One of the best and smartest outfits I've seen today. The yellow accents are perfect.

Kara said...

Zucchini Day??? That's one I've never heard of before and need to google right away. I didn't even know it was groundhog's day until like 7pm. (Not like it matters to us down here if spring comes early or not, it's pretty much back to summer already...) Groundhog's Day is one of my favorite movies! I need to watch that now, make it a tradition.

Moniek said...

I love your blazer!

La Fille D'or said...

yeay early Spring! You know since moving out west I hadn't paid attention to groundhog day! Sad isn't it? Well I hope the east gets it's early spring.

I LOVE this outfit. You're lucky I live far far away- or I would be knocking on your door to borrow it.
You look amazing - I may copy you -
I don't have a skirt like that but I do have a striped top and navy blazer : )

Stacey Kay said...

I love your stripes! Those shoes are pretty great too.

Lyddie I am in love with this yellow you've got on. It looks so good against the stripes!!

And I'm bummed I missed out watching Groundhog's Day. What in the world is Zucchini day?

Krystal said...

I need to look up the statistics of when he was correct!

Wendy said...

Stunning outfit - am definitely putting this in my inpiration file ... and I'm wearing yellow for the second time this week today!!

Iris said...

I hope the groundhog is right! I think your sunny disposition and wardrobe choices will help it along :)

Jessica said...

I'm embarrass to say that I didn't even watch that movie yesterday! And then I battled the blizzard aftermath to meet a friend out at a bar for trivia night ... and there were TWO questions about the movie that neither one of us could remember. Shameful.

As always, I love your outfit. The shoes are perfect! I wish spring would hurry it up!

Victoria said...

Love this outfit, you look so very chic! xxx

Diana Mieczan said...

Lorena said...

This fits perfect.
I love every single detail :)

gypsyroxylee said...

Man this is a smart look! You look uber chic! Love the navy blue and yellow together and those shoes are to die for! You look fantastic! Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies! Although there are times in my life where I feel like it's Groundhog Day!

Between Laundry Days said...

Oh, Groundhog Day. Hard to believe that we'll see spring soon, seeing as we're sitting under two feet of snow right now... :)

I love the nautical vibe you're rocking here!

Terri said...

What a bright reminder that we won't always be buried under inches and feet of snow!
