Light blues are all over the place.. probably because they embody spring, which everyone seems to be lusting after right now. Ahh, to wear navy playsuits and sailor shorts. These bright dresses are recent spring-y finds of mine. The polka dot pink and yellow hand smocked dresses were traded, Etsy style, with super sweet Corky of Cork Spork.. I absolutely love the pastels of the yellow and green dress, and I'm thinking it may become my Easter dress this year.

The other two - the red and white ruffle dress and the pink puff sleeve dress - are both thrifted finds I'll be putting in the shop on Monday. The red and white dress is really perfect for Valentine's Day. Too bad I found it a few days too late.

Neil and I are headed out tomorrow morning for our St. Louis Valentine trip! Since both of us went to college at a school near St. Louis, we made a lot of visits to the city and therefore have a million memories there - we went on our first date in St. Louis and celebrated anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays with friends there. Neil also proposed to me there! It's a fantastic urban city with a wonderful culinary scene and a ton of unique traits (and no, I'm not just talking about the Arch). It'll always be our city standard to compare all other cities by.

Besides reliving some memories and being romantic and couple-y, we're going to eat a lot (dinner at Niche and brunch at Rooster!) and shop a lot (H&M!). And stock up on a whole lot of wine (Trader Joe's!) and local St. Louis brewery beer (Schlafly!). While all of this is wonderful, I just can't wait to have 48 hours alone with Neil Winter.

Happy Valentine's Day! What are your plans?
