It's the Simple Things...

The end of winter can cause a torrent of emotions: anxious anticipation of the warm sun, bitter resentment toward yet another snowfall, or boredom from donning the same boots day-after-day. It's times like these that I like to focus on the little things that make everyday life just a little happier. Here's a few "simple pleasures" that get me through the single-digit-degrees... perhaps they can help you hold out until the sundresses and espadrilles too!

A printed Marimekko automatic mini umbrella $28. With the freakish amount of precipitation we've gotten this season, I've had my duck boots and umbrella handy at all times. Brighten up a dreary disposition with a pop of color from your pop-out umbrella, for the next time is starts to "wintry-mix"!

The perfect-fitting pair of denim $134-$188. Nothing makes me feel better than a great pair of jeans. We have a style, brand--and length--for everyone! Stop by for a one-on-one consult to find the best fit for your body!

One of Aunt Sadie's Scented candles $16. Few things beat a sweet smelling living room when I'm cozied up with a crossword. And the new spring and summer scents transport my mind to warmer places!

A crisp new Last Tango tank $32. Perk up an outfit by pairing one of these puppies with your favorite neutral cardigan - great to coordinate with a favorite pair of flats or bling earrings!

JPK Paris 75 tote bag in Grass $198. Defy the drab duds of winter with a vibrant colored tote bag! Carrying my gym clothes or paperwork in one of these makes me smile despite the blaring winds!
