Mix & Mingle Monday

Although you found out several fun facts about me in my two award posts on Thursday, I definitely want to learn more about you all, so I didn’t want to skip this week’s Mix and Mingle Monday!  This past week I spent some time with my family and went shopping with my mom, which got me even more excited about spring and all the fabulous trends emerging for the season!  Thus, the topic for today will be Spring!  Below are some fun, spring related questions with my answers.
Wide Legs by Derek Lam
1. What current trend are you most excited about?
As a girl with fairly muscular legs (from volleyball), I’m definitely excited about the return of 70’s and the wide leg and flare jeans that go along with it!  While skinny jeans are still going strong, wide legs are definitely more flattering for my calves!

2. What’s your favorite thing to do outside during the spring?
I love putting up my patio lights and planting flowers in the spring.  Sitting on the balcony sipping on cocktails is one of my favorite things to do on a warm night, so getting my space ready is always exciting!

      3. What’s your least favorite thing to do outside during the spring?
Spring cleaning!  As much as I love planting flowers and hanging lights, I hate cleaning all the grime left from winter off my big balcony windows, floor, and railings!  Ugh!

4. What spring event or Holiday are you most looking forward to?
Although I’m not a baseball fanatic, it’s hard to live in Chicago and not look forward to opening day at Wrigley field!  Everyone is so excited for the season to start, and the games are so much fun to attend (even though I’m a Cincinnati Reds fan)!

      5. What do you deem a wardrobe necessity for spring?
This spring, I think a bright colored handbag is definitely a must!  Citrus and jewel tones seem especially hot right now, so I’m going to be looking for a gorgeous orange, turquoise, or emerald bag to tote along with me!

Now it’s your turn!  What are your answers to these fun spring questions?  I love learning more about all my fabulous online friends and am waiting to see what you have to say!


  1. I am totally looking for a good pair of wide legs (hmm or seeing if I fit ones I already have!)
