What I Wore: "Dot" to Break Away

What I Wore: Shorts (Similar Here);  Sweater (ASOS); Shoes (Loly in the Sky); Clutch (Popbasic); Bracelets (Popbasic)


Can you tell I have been very determined to have spring be here? Look at those bare legs! Brr! 

Well, actually, it has been pretty nice (knock on wood!), and you can't blame me for thinking spring is here- we are on Spring Break this week! Most people use the opportunity to really get away and have a holiday. We're in more of a "stay-cation" mode...or, truth be told, a "work-work-work-get-caught-up" mode. Still, we are finding a little bit of time to break away from routine. We headed up to the Big City and Bright Lights of Billings for shopping one day, and around the house I've been getting caught up on laundry, mending, and all those little things. 

While spring cleaning, I finally went through old letters and cards. I love to see them and reread every now and then, but where to keep them? Do you keep cards and correspondence (do you send cards or correspondence*?) What do you do with all of them? Mine is a small but faithful circle who will write now and then. It makes me smile.  You know who you are, and I hope I bring that same kind of smile to you too.

  1. I wouldn't have thought it'd be warm enough for bare legs there- but I'm sure we have a different temperature scale for that :) You look so stylish, I love the shorts + sweater combo and those accessories are so good. I keep some of my cards in a storage box, but I limit it to ones that are handmade or have special messages. Enjoy the last of your spring break!

  2. Look at those long gams of yours! Today was the first day since November that we could go out and enjoy the weather. Sadly though, it is supposed to snow tomorrow! AGGGGH!!! Will this winter ever leave? So I am very very jealous of your bare legs.

    I have a 2 shoe boxes filled with cards and letters I've kept. It'd be great to figure out a way to turn them into art so they could be displayed.

  4. The shorts are so cute! I keep my cards and letters in shoe boxes, but I need to find a better way to store them...

  5. What a champ for bearing those bare legs!! Love this outfit and the simple polka dots on the shorts.

    I personally keep all of my letters/notes in a shoe box, tucked away on one of my bookshelves. I'm pretty sure I'll need to start a second box soon, but I don't quite know what to do once the second box fills up!

  7. I literally exclaimed "BARE LEGS!" when I came to this post, haha. It hurt my heart and made me incredibly jealous. I can't wait til we catch up to that kind of weather! And I keep all my cute cards and letters too- some of them are even over a decade old. It's way too hard to toss out memories and good intentions like that :)
