Style: End-of-winter bright accessories

I heard quite some breaking news on the radio this morning: spring begins in just one week! I honestly can't quite wrap my head around this fact, especially when to me, this winter has felt exceptionally long, tiresome and exhausting (whoever renovated an apartment in the dead of winter with everything that it encompasses - from freezing cold to unexpected snowstorms - would understand). I know that it may sound overly dramatic to some of you, but I'm truly, definitely, unwaveringly over winter, and I can't wait for the spring weather to arrive. Especially when right now, as I'm looking out my window, I can only see grey, overcast skies, sad and tired bare trees and people all bundled up against the cold.

But being all winter-depressed on you wasn't part of my plan today. Quite the contrary. To beat the last desperate winter's efforts to bring us down, I've decided to round up the most gorgeous bright and colorful accessories that will translate seamlessly into spring. Whether it's a charming little crossbody bag, a spring-infused wallet, or a colorful piece of statement jewelry, any of these items is bound to chase any last winter blues away.

one: Dorothy Perkins mini plait satchel // two: Rebecca Minkoff Love crossbody bag // three: Michael Kors Extra small Miranda tote // four: Dorothy Perkins orange flower bracelet  // five: Stephan & Co floral statement necklace // six: Kate Spade Cedar Street wallet // seven: Dorothy Perkins green polka dot umbrella // eight: Kendra Scott Dani earrings

Real talk: A little life update

This is what my life has been all about for the past few weeks. Too much glamour to bear. Seriously. 

Hi guys. Anybody still out there? I'm popping in quickly tonight, just to tell you that I'm still alive. I'm not usually one to complain about the busyness of life (quite the contrary - I'm the annoying one striving on the busy schedule), but these past couple weeks have been exceptionally rough. Between my apartment renovation, my day job that couldn't be forgotten and some sad personal stuff, I got pretty banged up both physically and emotionally. (just trying to keep it real).

The photo above could give you a little hint. Yup. That's exactly how my apartment was looking five weeks ago. And four weeks ago. And three weeks ago, too. I was beginning to think that this renovation would never end. Fortunately, my wonderful contractors haven't let me down, and I'm more than happy to report that after 5 weeks of intense labor, I'm finally seeing a tiny light at the end of the tunnel. My apartment is beginning to look like a place I could eventually move into one day. Not quite there yet, but soon! I'm so freaking exhausted excited.

I can't wait to share my renovation journey with you, along with some (hopefully) spectacular before-after pictures, and all the lessons I've learned along the way. And I'm also wishing to go back to a more consistent blogging schedule - I miss this little creative space of mine, and I miss you, guys! Honestly, I'm still trying to figure it all out. Please, bear with me, and in the mean time, please please, keep your fingers crossed for me! I'll be forever grateful.
