Bye bye Winter!

You have no idea how happy I am because it's officially Spring! It makes my heart dance - I just need Mother Nature to feel the same way... C'mon lady, let it be spring!

A few weeks back, I got to walk at Anthropologie Philadelphia's Spring Fashion Show. Last year I walked their fall show but this spring one was my favorite. Super springy - bright colors, lots of floral patterns, their pattern play slash color play is absolutely magical this season! For those who missed out on the show - no worries! Here are a bunch of photos from the show and behind the scenes before we walked our 'runway'. (I just want to say this word because it sounds cool, you know) - I want you to feel as springy as I do!

Before the show started, we were getting retouched and drinking a bit of champagne, and having a little photoshoot.

Oh hey me! haha - This gorgeous spring dress I wore is called Farm Rio Quintana Maxi Dress(click to shop!), super light and simply beautiful. At the fitting this is the first dress I grabbed. Sneaking Bernardo Harper Embroidered Shooties under the dress - these heels were so easy to walk in! I chose these Gong Drop Earrings and obviously these are everyone's fave - so simple but so stunning, go perfect with any outfits. I looooved my look!

COLORS AND PATTERNS!! She was wearing patterned heels too, perfect mis-match-but-match, and her hair just complimented the whole look. My fave!

Mixing opposite colors - I became friends with Libby at the fall show last year when she walked right after me. She slayed the look. So stunning!

As much as I adore colors and patterns, my eyes go to just a simple plain white. Loving every single detail of this jumpsuit!

This lady Tanya and I knew each other even before the fall show through a mutual photographer and this time I walked right after her so we got to chit chat (love herrr)! She is also a Philly blogger who kills the chic lady style all year long. Of course she rocked the perfect chic pattern play at this show too.

I was digging this long black duster X stripe pants look! They are both super easy to style with anything and so perfect together!
