Ingredients… For a Splendid Spring


Yesterday was the first day of Spring! Also known as the Spring Equinox. Spring is easily my favorite season–all the flowers are blooming, baby animals are being born, the weather is beginning to warm up… As someone once said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!'” Yes!

Last year, I posted a blog about my key pieces for a perfect spring wardrobe (all of which are still spring 2012 style staples in my book). This year I thought it would be fun to share all of the things that make for an ideal spring in my mind.

Without further ado, here is my recipe for a Splendid Spring

1 cup of collecting wildflowers

3 tablespoons of music festivals {I suggest Coachella}

A dash of Sweet Peep Sushi

2 handfuls of these SPRINGredients

2 teaspoon of spring favorites {these are great too}

1 stick of 30+ SPF

A splash of adventure

A sprinkle of morning hikes

1 heaping scoop of laughter {this is a great substitute too}

Instructions: Mix all ingredients together over a 3-month run and enjoy!

What are you hoping to do this spring? Make your list in the comments below…or better yet, your recipe!

XO Lauren

    LOVE THIS. So cute and filled with fabulous goodies. I think my Spring is going to be dominated with wedding stuff. I’ve got three showers this month between Florida and Alabama, which is going to result in lots of traveling and time with friends and family all leading up to the big day. Ahhh. so excited. xo

    Brand new outfit post over at Fash, featuring Spring Pastels.

    I love the peep sushi! I’m going to make these for my husband’s Easter basket this year! As far as music festivals go, I’ll be at Bamboozle, on the beach in Asbury Park jamming along to the Foo Fighters and Jimmy Eat World and others bands. And our adventure this spring is our trip from NYC to San Francisco to LA to San Diego at the end of May!

    This is such a super cute post! I love those shorts in the picture, they’re really adorable. This Spring I want to sit and write in a field of tulips. Drink a ice cold lemonade on the beach and stroll through Central Park in a big floppy hat and sun dress.
