One of my favourite things about spring is the giant forsythia bush in my yard bursting into bloom! It always means that warm temperatures and sunshine are on their way. Both are in full-force now, but it was exciting the day these pictures were taken to be able to wear bare legs!

I decided to save the post I was all excited about for a few days from now -- I'm almost at my 200th post! I can't believe it! I suppose it's been almost a year since I started blogging, or it will be in August. Craaaazy!

This outfit was a throw-together work outfit, but I like how it turned out! The green skirt is always fun, and I hadn't worn this fluttery-sleeved t-shirt in a long time because it's surprisingly hard to style. Ehh. I added my purple flats for more fun colour, and my silver leather jacket served as outerwear. It's such a go-to piece, I don't know what I'm going to do when it falls apart like it's threatening to!

The belt I'm wearing is actually a pale grey colour. It came with the gorgeous grey pleated vintage dress I wore here (oldie alert!) and here. I need to wear that dress soon, it's perfect for summer!

Oh yeah! Flowers :D Forsythia make me happy, but they're not my favourite flower. I really love calla lilies, and also tiger lilies. I worked at a flower shop for a while and it ended up being one of the most traumatizing work experiences of my life -- you'd think flower-people would be nice! But I still like flowers (sometimes), and yep, calla and tiger lilies are my faves :D What's your favourite flower?

I was about to write "happy Tuesday" but then I remembered that it's only Monday. Oh boy. That happens to me so often! Haha. But anyway, happy Monday!
