Dear Kindred,

As much as I love all the seasons – I’m happy to be walking into the next! Happy First Day of Spring! This spring white look is so fresh and crisp and I couldn’t think of jumping into something better to celebrate a new season. It adds a little pep in my step & I’m already excited for this week to begin!

I’ve been looking forward to this week for quite some time! I start my first assignment tomorrow as a NICU travel nurse (say a little prayer for me) and I get to go home this weekend! I am heading West to attend the Vance Peterson Memorial Coaching Clinic. Vance was my uncle who passed away from lung cancer in 2007. Our family and his friends created the VP Clinic as a way to keep his legacy alive and to help other coaching families in need with donation and scholarship’s!

My uncle’s motto he adopted during his cancer fight was “Don’t Ever Give Up”. This year I was given the opportunity to contact all of our recipients and see how they are doing! I talked with people endearing such hardships yet have never given up! It’s so humbling to hear their stories and be a part of their journey. The lump in my throat is still there from interacting with these amazing people. Although I miss my uncle dearly, I know he would love all of this. I can’t wait to share pictures!

I’m trying to slowly put away my dark winter colors (they aren’t going far, since I know there are bound to be some cooler days) and play up this immaculate light spring white color. White on white is a total power play and wearing one color is anything but boring. It’s so flattering and indeed simple. And…we ALL have white pieces in our closet we can pair together.

Spicing it up with a single shade provides a clean easy approach to putting an outfit together. It’s also crucial to find key pieces and throw in some texture too. Look for different textures, patterns and hues to piece together. This will provide an overall universal look. And the best yet, monochrome is universally flattering for all body types.

This chambray vest is everything! I wanted to accent my all spring white outfit with some color and this is definitely a winner. And these shoes! I just signed up for ShoeDazzle. I will let you know what I think after a few months, but you will be seeing these ones on repeat! Perfect height, love the block heel and the laser cut details are oh so eye catching!

Happy Spring loves. Fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat!

Greater is He that is in me
