At first we didn’t want to jinx anything during the spurts of warm weather we’ve been experiencing this spring. After every declaration of excitement about the sunshine and high temperatures, we’d quickly follow it up with, “But we know it’ll be snowing next week.” Well…it hasn’t snowed (knock on wood)! In fact, it’s just as gorgeous with continuing warm spring-like temperatures. And best of all, the trees and flowers are blooming. There’s nothing like a gorgeous spring sunny day full of flowers and green grass. Therefore we would like to share with you some articles and outfit inspirations that represent this amazing weather! Who said it can’t also be sunny in the office?

We also share more reads each day through our Twitter feed and Facebook page, so if you’re hungry for more, you have even more places to check out! Have you read something you want included or do you have a theme you’d like us to feature? Or more importantly, do you want to share your personal childhood influences? Let us know in the comments! Happy reading!
