Although it's still about 20 degrees colder than I prefer for springtime in NYC, spring is finally here and that's all that matters! I made it through another winter in New York City, and can finally begin to defrost and come out of my hibernation (which has consisted of countless seamless orders, endless bottles of wine, and more reality TV than I'd like to admit... anyone else?).
I really love the start of any new season, but the start of spring is my favorite because it symbolizes rebirth and growth. The bare branches grow back their leaves, the flowers bud their pretty petals, and warm sunlight fills our days. Everything is just happier and more alive.
Spring also reminds me to check-in. Believe it or not, we're already 25% through 2015. Where are we with our goals, our dreams, our growth? Don't let these questions be anxiety provoking (we still have 75% of the year left to go); embrace the transformative energy of spring, and vibrance around you, to awaken your dreams.
In other news, I'm pretty sick of sweaters, scarves and boots. I've been bundled up for too long and cannot wait to start taking off those layers, and dressing for a new season! With all the new pieces available for spring, my shopping addiction has been at an all time high, so I'm sharing my personal list of spring style essentials in case you want to share in my addiction... and so I can tell myself I don't have a problem, and that shopping is research for my readers.
Enjoy the sunshine. Bud, bloom, grow.
