Spring green

I know, it’s been a while. Unmotivated is my middle name lately when it comes to the blog. Or anything. I’m feeling a bit burnt out and not sure if I even want to continue the blog anymore. It just feels so two years ago, ya know?

Work is pretty chaotic right now, my back hurts from the car accident I had in December. By the time I get to the weekend, I have no oomph left for me.

However, I got trigger point injections this past week that numb up the tight knots of pain in my back and I feel okay for the moment. I can tell they are already wearing off in some spots, but I still feel better then I usually do.

And, I am ordering so much stuff from Young Living I am qualifying to get a free bottle of the essential oil, Motivation, so perhaps that will help as well. We could all use a little motivation every now and again, huh? Ha. If you want to try out Young Living essential oils, sign up using to get your essential oil starter kit using my link here.

If you sign up for Essential Rewards, soon to be Loyalty Rewards, you can start earing freebies, too. The more you spend, the more freebies you earn. Start with the starter kit and move on up from there. Or not. I really could care less. (Here’s the lack of motivation speaking again. I really do need that Motivation oil. I’m not kidding here!)

On to this outfit. You can’t tell in these photos, but there are tiny little colorful speckles all over these jeans. I just loved that detail. And the ruffle on the mint crocheted top – also super cute. Add golden sandals for this glorious spring weather, rose gold purse and sunglasses, and you’re good to go for a minty spring green outfit. And now, I’m going to go hang out in a tree. Because I feel like it.

How to wear ponchos in the spring

We see ponchos more in the fall than in the spring, but they are a great staple to any wardrobe in the in-between seasons like spring or fall. It’s usually too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer for them, unless they are really lightweight. Here are some tips for wearing them in spring.

Gray and white colorblock poncho, White House Black Market, given to me; Velvet jeans, Ann Taylor Loft; Rose gold clutch, old, Marshall’s; Heart sunglasses, Ross; Chandelier earrings, old; Leopard print flats, Ross.

Lighten up the colors. Wear softer tones than you would in the fall.

Wear a sweater underneath for cooler weather. Lighten up what you wear underneath as the weather gets warmer.

Wear your poncho with a collared shirt. That wouldn’t work with the poncho I have in these shots because it has a big bulky collar, but it would work on some of my light weight ponchos.

Wear a poncho with skinny jeans for a casual look. 

Add a pop of color like these bright berry pink velvet pants from Ann Taylor Loft.

Stand amidst the flowers so you look very springy. Haha.

Wear a fluffy infinity scarf if your poncho doesn’t have a collar and it’s still cold outside.

Hook it over a finger and sling it over your shoulder if it gets too warm out.

Wear a belt over it. This only works if it’s a long poncho and works better if it’s not too thick and bulky.

Pair your poncho with leggings and boots. 

Just have fun with it!

Happy Palm Sunday everyone! Stay healthy. Stay safe. It’s a crazy world out there right now.
