April Showers can Suck It

I planned on going to the beach today to soak up some beautiful Florida sunshine with my cousin but April showers had something else in mind. The forecast was not in our favor, so we postponed our beach trip til Monday. Better late than never, I like to say. Especially when it comes to lounging on the beach, right?

This is the outfit that I wore on Easter Sunday. Is it just me or was cobalt blue a big trend this Easter? I had no idea...this was just the dress that I picked out if my closet as I was getting ready for church. And of course, leopard print. Because how can you celebrate Jesus' resurrection without it? (Just kidding). My favorite part is my name necklace though. Perfect to wear for a drunken night out, in case I wander off and can't remember my name (kidding again)!



Here's the rundown on my outfit in case any of y'all are curious:

Dress | Forever 21
Wedges & Earrings | Target
Belt | Dillard's 
Necklace | c/o RedEnvelope


And even though I'm a little mad at April's showers right now, I still thought it would be fun to do April's monthly mashup. Which is Meg's brilliant idea. If you don't know who Meg is, reference yesterday's post.

If April was a person...

She would rock super cute, pink polka dot rain boots, the trendy ones, not the childish ones.
She would definitely carry around a monogrammed Tervis filled with lime-infused water and wear oversized sunglasses in order to welcome the bright spring sunshine.
She would let her loose waves shake freely over her shoulders as she bent down to pick a handful of wildflowers.
You would find her relaxing under a big shade tree with the latest edition of her favorite magazine.
And having picnics in the park at lunch time.
She would twirl carelessly, letting her favorite sundress whip around her.
April would say a friendly "hello" to anyone who passed her on the street.

Check back tomorrow for part 2 of the Apartment Series tour :)
