Lately – Spring Favorites

Engineering In Style - Lately - Spring Favorites the Blogger Collective Link Up

Happy Friday!  Since the first day of Spring was last week, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things about Spring!

First, floral clothing.  My spring wardrobe is ridiculous!  I get excited every year to break out my favorite floral silk skirt.  Dresses, pastels, florals – my closet is filled with it.  All of my favorite pieces fit best in the spring season.

Another of my favorite things about spring is flowers the flowers.  Growing up in a rural environment, we were always excited for the first signs of spring flowers – the first to pop up always being Crocus.  I’m currently in love with Tulips – which we could never grow back at my parents house because the deer would eat them!  Now I just pick them up at Trader Joes.  #CityLife

April showers bring May flowers!  I actually love the spring rains.  Plus it’s a good excuse to buy an adorable trench coat and rain boots!  I’ve been lusting after a pair of Hunters for a couple years, and this season may be when I take the plunge!  Last year I invested in a great leather jacket, so this is the year of the trench!  However, I’m picky and haven’t found my perfect match quite yet.

Now that I live in Chicago, one of my favorite things about spring is seeing everyone come out of hibernation from the winter.  I love that on the first warm day of the year, everyone in Chicago is outside with a smile on their face.  I love the saying, you need to experience sadness to truly appreciate happiness.  Well, you need to experience Winter to truly appreciate summer.

    • Thanks Kay!! We’ve got a while before flowers in Chicago…still some snow in the future :(. But that makes having flowers inside even more amazing!!

    Tulips put a huge smile on my face!! 🙂

  • haha I love your quote about winter! IT is so true! I am from florida and I never really appreciated the warm temps, but after about 5 months of hiding my legs and no strappy sandles, I am so ready for spring! Those flowers are stunning too!

    Thanks for being a part of the Blogger Collective Linkup! Nice to meet you!

    • Me too! I think it’s because in the Midwest the beginning of spring is still very brown, so I overcompensate by wearing floral everything!

    You should definitely get some Hunters! They are totally worth the money, and they make the rain much more tolerable. Also, I am a huge flower girl, so I love getting lots of fresh flowers in the spring! Thanks so much for linking up!

    I totally agree with you on the floral clothing! I’m excited that I can finally start to wear them! Beautiful tulips too 🙂 So fun linking up with you last week!
