Mint print

Hard to believe it is friday, and we are a week into March already! I am thinking and hoping this will be the weekend all this snow finally melts and spring will arrive.

Yesterday I went to the grand opening of South Moon Under's new location in Westport, CT and I will have photos from that to share with you on monday. I loved meeting and chatting with everyone at the store, and also met Erin from Accidentally Stylish, who has tagged me to answer some questions:

1. In comparison, are you a early bird or a night owl? 
I find I'm much more productive in the mornings, but I'm not an 'up before the sun' kind of gal.

2. What makes your heart flutter every time you hear, smell, see, or taste it? 
Chocolate, really good chocolate.

3. Why did you start blogging? 
I wanted to be motivated to take pictures everyday. I love taking portraits, but there aren't always willing volunteers, so I became the subject. I also thought it would be fun to share all my great thrifty shopping feats!

4. What motivates you in moments of doubt?
Reminding myself that I have family and friends to support and help me, no matter what I do or how big a mistake I make.

5. Do you act after giving extra thought or impulsively? 
If I have to give too much thought to something, it's probably because I don't want to do it.

6. Would you live in a place other than where you live now and where? 
After this winter, I am feeling quite envious of the residents of Southern California.

7. What's your favorite season? 
I love spring, because I am a spring baby, and when the cherry blossom trees are in bloom I'm the happiest girl in the world. However spring in New England can still be quite cold, so my favorite season is summer.

8. If you could travel back in time, when would that be? 
I'd like to be in Europe during the time of the Renaissance, and become the subject of a famous artist's painting. Then I'd hang in museums forever and no one would know it was me.

9. What's your biggest pet peeve? 
Forks with bent tines. That probably sounds silly, but I can't stand how they feel.

10. What is one accessory you can't live without? 
Only one? I suppose right now it would be my thin gold ring, since I wear it nearly every day and I've already replaced it three times after losing it.

11. If you had a theme song, what would it be?
It was definitely "If I Ever Feel Better" by Phoenix, but perhaps it's time for a new one.

  1. Beautiful boots! The only thing I will miss about this horrible Winter is wearing boots LOL
    Happy weekend!

  2. Lovely outfit!! I love that top with that cardigan. That purse is such a beautiful color, and your boots are to die for!!
    I know what you mean by being a morning person, but not the "before the suns up" type, haha.


  3. Mint looks so good on you, loved reading your answers.


  4. I really love the print of your top! So pretty! (And yay for South Moon Under! I love the one in VA!)

  5. I loved this look on you, the print of the shirt is great :)
    Aaand, your pet peeve is super specific, ha ha!

  6. Your mint bag is so pretty and is great for Spring! I am ready to move to California after this horrible winter too :)

  7. Funny enough, I always thought of myself as a night owl, but as it turns out, I think I am more of an early bird. And I always thought that summer was my favorite, but then I started remembering how great spring is--finally realizing that winter is OVER! I love the mint bag!

  8. Love that top! Mint is so fresh and cute this season!

    xo, Nina

  18. I am loving the bright colors! That top is perfect for spring!

  19. That printed blouse is gorg! And your wore it well


  20. Oh yes, chocolate really can make one's heart flutter. I feel you 100% there, girl.

    Also I love that you would travel back to Europe! For all we know, YOU could be the Mona Lisa! Gasp... have you already time travelled? I guess you'd never even tell us if you did. :)

    Such a pretty outfit as always! The snowy path makes such a lovely backdrop, and I adore how that aqua pops on ya!

  21. Love your blouse, gorgeous outfit!!!

  26. I love that a Phoenix song is your theme song! and i agree, I am much more productive in the mornings, too!

  27. Really cool top! It was great learning more about you! Awesome Q&A

  28. That bag really adds a fun pop of color and brightens up the outfit! Here's to Spring arriving officially in 10 days! :)

  29. How funny - you had to be your subject for photos because people would not pose for you :/ oh they don't know what they are missing out on!
    I would love for you to take my pictures.
    I adore this look and your hair looks fab.

  30. I don't know what it is, but your hair has been looking more gorgeous than ever lately - did you get a new flat iron? Whatever it is, the results are stunning. As are these photos! The fact that you mostly take them yourself really blows me away, especially with your beautiful detail shots. I'm in love with your jewelry in this outfit - the bracelets and rings all look like they were meant to go together! (And how cute is that spade ring?!)
