4 Things I Love About Spring 2013...With Extras on The Side!!

 So, many things make me smile this April...birds setting up their homes....flowers blooming...(BTW, I highly recommend Miracle Grow potting soil).....

1.     Gigi!! 

She just discovered a new vintage boutique in Bryan, TX.  It’s called EARTH ART: Jewelry, Art, Clothing, and Handicrafts from the Global Community.  209 South Main St. Great bohemian styles!  Her first outfit is from this shop…her second outfit... I just love her spring color!

2.     Wearing Leopard With Coral…don’t put your leopard away…just pair it with different colors!! Tory Burch Sandals

3. Simple, Flirty Dresses on warm nights!

4.  Finally, black and white is still on trend...and it will always be one of my favorites!!

Topper: Lane Bryant
Necklace: Simpy Vera Wang at Kohls

Have a wonderful Thursday all!!  Find ways to enjoy each day of spring!  And make sure on Thursday you visit Katie's Favorite Things Blog Hop!!

  1. Pam, you look totally marvellous in your black and white! Coral and leopard look fab together as well. It's wonderful to celebrate spring, isn't it ?!

  2. Pam, you and Gigi both look beautifully ready for spring. Love the sound of leopard with coral. Classy is the term that comes to mind to describe your black and white ensemble. Timeless!

  3. LOVE the animal prints year round. Really like the black and white combination too. The vintage clothes are awesome.

  4. Leopard and coral is one of my favorite pairings! And your black and white top looks fabulous. Yay Spring!!!

  5. OOh Gigi!!!
    I LOVE that dress :)
    I bet it will fit me when you tire of it,lol!
    Hugs Pam,

  6. Just back in London and thank goodness Spring is finally in the air and the blossom is beginning to come out. Such a joy after a long hard winter.

  7. Pam, this is a lovely collection of great outfits. Wonderful colours!

    I love your black&white topper, it seems to be a very sheer fabric and is gorgeous.

    Congrats on the fabulous umbrella you won over at Adrienne's place!

  8. I love spring and autumn very much.
    Gret top, dear Pam

  9. You and Gigi look glorious! It's wonderful to see color, and I agree with you that black-and-white is always chic too.

  10. Both you and Gigi look great. Love those leopard sandals. What a great idea to wear them in the spring with a different color like coral!

  11. I love the leopard and coral pairing!! So fresh and spring ready!! Looks fabulous. Of course your black amd white are so chic. A favorite of mine.

  12. I love you in the coral and black and white outfits and those Hibiscus - wow - have to get me some Miracle Gro! Have a fantastic weekend!

  13. You and Gigi look ready for spring, the vintage outfit is not something I would have thought of choosing, but it's making me rethink ! Coral seems to be everywhere, I need to get shopping, before it's all gone. I always fall back on my standby old favourite black & white when I don't know what to wear for an occassion.

  14. I have several black skirts, but somehow I haven't paired them with my white tops. Maybe because in LA black on black (with tiny white or cream) is still a favorite option. The peach top/dress looks lovely on you:)

  15. Leopard and coral are awesome.. I wouldnt have thought of that combination and now I have to try it!!!
    great Photos Pam!! xo J

  16. I appreciate seeing Gigi wearing a romantic flowing top. Those styles of lace and soft pastels were something I wore in my 20's and now always put them back on the rack because they seem to be in the "too young" category. I'll have to at least try them on now and see if I can make them work.


  17. You both look beautiful!!!! Beautiful flowers make me smile too. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite things hop xo

  18. Simply fab! Love the all the chic outfits and inspiring spring photos. Got my eye on your next posts.
