Dreaming of Springtime

I am not a Winter gal.

While I do appreciate the snuggling, and the boots, and the lovely layers, my ideal winter would last one month and then be done. I am always waiting for Spring. The flowers, the sunshine, the birds, the green. Ah Spring, you are my favorite.

And doesn't the 2011 J.Crew Spring Collection just make you want Spring to come even sooner?!

What's your favorite season for fashion?

These are cute outfits, and those models are so tall! I like the hair-do of the girl in the bottom left photo.

My favorite time for fashion is probably fall. We can wear layers with darker colors without going black. Coats aren't necessary, so there's nothing to hide your style, the clothes you've been missing all summer. Although, summer fashion is a close second, because it's so simple and sweet. Dresses, brown leather sandals, shorts, and small purses hanging from bare shoulders--it's so pleasant!

ahhh yes! you are making me wish spring were here sooner! it is sooo frigid cold outside these days!!

Renee said...

I have to say that I'm not crazy about winter either and I live in Michigan! Cute clothes! My favorite season for fashion is fall.

Jessica said...

I would have to say Spring is my favorite time for fashion too! After winter I am so ready for a fresh new look!

BTW that first outfit with the yellow shorts is to die for! Love it!

Amanda said...

I love spring too, but I'd have to say my favorite fashion season is definitely fall. Tights, boots, scarves, and pumpkin flavored everything. Perfection.

This post made my heart beat a little faster. Love it!

I do love the springtime...it feels like the most heavenly, perfect sort of weather (especially here in Southern CA :). I adore J. Crew's lookbook (have you seen Madewell's?! I just posted it up today! :). SO making me look forward to spring!! :)

Vanessa said...

Tell me about it! Here in Sweden we have winter for 5 to six months out of the year. It's killing me! I'm moving to New York in the summer, and then I'll just have to deal with about half of that. So much better!

Kristin said...

That gorgeous orange skirt certainly has me dreaming of spring now!

ugh. i gotta say, i am not a winter gal either -- unfortunately i live in utah and it's currently 28 degrees! however, i have come to embrace the cold-weather attire this year [finally!] -- it's really fun to bundle up in layers, wear boots and scarves, etc. i still prefer summer, but i guess i can make do :)

Liz said...

J. Crew can do no wrong. Seriously love those outfits!

Lindsey said...

Oh, if only I had those legs, then any season when I didn't have to cover them up would be my favorite!

shealennon said...

Wow, I couldn't have said it better myself. I'm definitely a spring person. And that J.Crew collection makes me wish it wasn't still January!!

Jess said...

*mAki* said...

I love the collection! I love all seasons - I love summer, but I love heavy coats and tights and boots, too:)

Ash said...

Personally, I love winer. Living in SoCal means our "winter" is literally fall, which means scarves and boots.. making one happy Ash over here :)

Tali Schiffer said...

I am right there with you Dionne! I am over winter by now, and am so so ready for Spring, which is my favorite season too (probably because my birthday's in the Spring...)

Barbara said...

I'm with you, Dionne, which is why I live in Florida! I still visit kids up north so I kept my winter wardrobe, but summer will always be the way I go.

Colleen said...

J. Crew nailed it this spring. I'm so excited.

Caroline said...

Ashley said...

Tay Talk said...

Yes they do make me need Spring to be here NOW. I can't wait for shorts and pretty colors. Not that you can't have pretty in the winter, but you know what I mean.

Is it really only January?

Diana Mieczan said...

Ohh me too..I cant wait to wear shorts and tees and feel the sun on my cheeks:) Have a fantastic weekend, sweetie
Kisses

Ps: I love those outfits:)

Tender Branson said...

My favorite outfits are summer ones, though I can't say I follow any of the trends. These J. Crew ones caught J-Fur's eyes.

Amanda said...

Love Spring! I can't wait until it makes its appearance---in 3.5 months...

:)

delia said...

I love the cute skirts/leggings of winter & wearing fun dresses in the summer, but finally taking off the pants & throwing on shorts makes spring the BEST!

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

I love your idea of a one month winter . . . do you think this will work in Chicago, where I just moved? :) Thanks for your sweet comments on my house tour.

Fondly,
Glenda

Signe said...

Spring is totally my favorite as well - there is no better month than May!

And a lovely Sunday to you :)

Brandi said...

Especially with gorgeous outfits like that, how could you not wish spring would get here faster? I have to say, we've been spoiled by this gorgeous weather here in Southern CA the last few days. It's so nice, I could probably even pull one of these off!

Meghan said...

I simply love spring! I loved last spring's H&M Garden collection, so I cannot wait to see what they have this year!

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...
