Currently Craving: Spring! The weather has been teasing us this week with 70+ degree days! I'm craving blissful, sunny days watching the flowers and trees wake up from their long winter nap. I can't wait for all the birds and butterflies to start visiting our yard. Indoors I'm swapping thick, cozy textures for light, airy pieces. Here are a some springy finds that caught my eye this month...

For your home...

Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden 
This book has been around for a few years now, has remarkable ratings on Amazon and is fulfilling all my flower garden fantasies while I wait to build a big country house and plant my own flower garden!

Penelope Table Lamp
Swooning over this beautiful painted lamp! A refreshing take on a traditional design. Isn't the blue so pretty paired with the antique brass base? Using this as major inspiration for the girl's room.

Seagrass Serving Tray
Trays are incredibly helpful for entertaining or even corralling a few items on your coffee table. While most trays are wood, I love the extra textural element the seagrass adds to this one. And while we're talking about trays, can I share this incredible 38" rattan tray I found, too? My goodness, that would be so much fun to fill for a party!

Beachcomber Baskets
Speaking of seagrass... these baskets will never go out of style! While seagrass used to be associated with coastal decor, it's being used more and more in traditional and farmhouse style interiors now and I am thrilled!

Art by Jennifer Allevato
I love so many of Jennifer's pieces. This one titled From a Table in Bethesda is one of my favorites! Take a look at her other prints - she is so talented!

Botanical Garden Spatula
A simple way to bring a little bit of spring into your home. Hoping this makes it's way into my kitchen around Mother's Day... 😉

For your closet...

Violet Ruffled Utility Jumpsuit 
To be honest, I'm on the fence with the whole jumpsuit trend. But this one stopped me in my tracks and I haven't stopped thinking about it since! It doesn't have that weird baggy shape in the back like a lot of jumpsuits and I think for something 'utilitarian' it still comes across as flattering and feminine. Love!

Mali Beach Bag 
An item I would love to add to my closet for spring and summer: this beautiful straw tote from Monika Hibbs' new home store. I can see myself packing it up for weekly pool dates, beach trips, a picnic lunch, basically anywhere!

Persephone Beaded Mini Skirt
It only takes a handful of fun statement pieces like this to give a closet full of basics a little pick me up! I love the beading detail. This would be pretty paired with a simple white blouse and sandals.

Place Nationale Le Gayan Dress
I understand at $400 this dress is probably not at the most reasonable price point for most of my readers, but I'm including it in my round up of springy style this month because I am very much inspired by it! I love that girly bow detail in the back!

Pointed Toe Mules
Dainty and feminine in every way! I would wear these with cropped jeans in the spring or a little white dress in the summer.

Thanks for reading! xx
