My, oh my! {Those of you Seattle readers might recognize that springtime sentiment fondly, a la Dave Niehaus – former Mariners announcer!} We are so delighted with today’s post as it just hugs the fresh season and inspires us to get into the kitchen to bake up some sort of lemony chiffon cake, shortbread peppered with rosemary or a tart brimming with fresh berries; something delicious that signifies springtime and freshness.

Spring is one of my very favorite times of year, especially in the South. Everything is in bloom, the sun is shining, baseball season begins, farmers market fresh fruits & veggies fill my Saturday mornings, and it means we are closer to Summer as each day passes!



We have been lucky with some unseasonably  warm weather as of late, so warm weather has certainly been on my mind. Here are a few of my must-have top picks for you this Spring!

1. From a young age I collected hats. I fall in love with a new one every day, and this little gem from J.Crew is no exception. How can you resist a seersucker band, anyways?
2. Dreaming of fresh fruit pies in the months to come. I simply adore my Emile Henry pie dish – the only one I use!
3. I have literally been swooning over this iPhone case since I first Pinned it. Tortoise shell anything is a must in my book and a great way to style it up this Spring.
4. Oh the sweet scents of Spring. My go-to is “Sweet Tea” from the fine folks at elizabethW. The aroma is fresh and clean, and the company was inspired by their grandmothers’ wonderful perfumes!
5. Loving every moment of mommy-hood, I couldn’t wait for my little man to have his very first swim suit. This tiny little number from Mini Boden just arrived last week and I’m dying for some fun in the water! The classic stripes are a nautical no brainer.
6. Dreaming of a green thumb, I’m bound & determined to get my flowers + herbs going strong this year! This cast stone planter will be the perfect inspiration.
7. I’ve been a loyal wearer of Toms for some time now, but their new shades have me wanting more!


What are you loving for Spring? Would love to see your picks as well!
