"Spring is in the Air!"

Blogland.. yes according to my cliche title it is spring in Chicago today!  It's so gorgeous out.. I was so excited to wake up for classes for once.  Why do you ask!?  Umm.. SPRING FASHION! I just recently bought some cute keds knock offs shoes..($10 from Forever 21) and I was excited to wear them with my low cropped above the ankle jeans.  I decided to just put on a white v-neck tee and my big faced white leather watch with the lil diamonds around it.  My statement piece of winter coming on over with me to spring :)  Fashion is something I am very lets say.. obsessed with! I am a shopaholic.  I feel like I have been cheating on clothes with crafts though.. I've been checking into Michael's and Jo-Ann's instead of the mall!  It think I will be back in the arms of fashion soon though.. the spring fashion looks are adorable and I cannot wait to splurge!  Winter fashion did not do so much for me this year.. I think I was tired of wearing sweaters and boring colors.  But hello spring and all the wonderful colors you bring..

I have been doing some online shopping and looking for ideas for this year.  Hopefully 16 days from now I will in Florida playing softball with my college team at the Rebel Spring Games in Kissimmee.. Its not like im counting or anything :)  So here are some of the looks that have captivated me.  What do you think?  Do we share some of the same tastes?

1. These are 2 looks from JCREW.. Chambray love!  I really like the color differences in the first look, but I am not sure if I am bold enough to try it.  I have the white pants in the second look so I would just need the shirt to complete the look :)  I go to school near an outlet mall that has JCrew.. so I am hoping if I head over there I can get a deal on the look!

2. Call me what you'd like but I am really digging this double-knot.  It may look messy, but I think that is what draws my attention to it.  The beauty is in its imperfection.  Hopefully my hair is long enough to give this look a shot :)

3. Good old fashion plain tennis shoes.  I think they are my favorite for spring/summer.  I have way too many pairs :)  The striped ones above are the ones that I bought last week and am wearing today. 

I hope you all had a great valentine's day.  My boyfriend of 4 1/2 years and I decided we didnt really want to make a big deal of the Hallmark holiday, but he did surprise me with a dozen beautiful red roses that morning.  He's sweet :)  I also got a little valentine's basket from his mom, a card from my mom, godmother, and grandpa.  The other surprise valentine which was in my mailbox Monday morning was from my Valentine in the Valentine exchange over at Craft Goodies.  Wendy and I ended up being Valentine's and she was a very sweet valentine indeed :)  Here is my pictures of what she sent me..

and this is what I gave to her..

Overall, what a great experience :)  Well, hopefully I get to some crafting this weekend.  I work a crazy schedule.. but I will try. 

Happy Crafting!
