Six things you should have for Spring

Good Morning bellas and bellos we are in Brazil now, house hunting and I’m feeling the samba and the caipirinhas.  This is a happy country indeed.  Since it’s almost Fall here I got to skip Summer and Spring.  Not really! I’ll be back in the US soon to get things started for warmer and nicer days. Below are six things I would like to have for Spring.

A Citrus tree because spring is awakening, revitalizing, and energizing which is everything a citrus tree will do for your home.  If you like that top picture as much as I do then you are just a better person.  There are a number of websites that sell them online (search for “indoor citrus tree”) and they’ll come up, although, I think the best way to get them is in person at a local nursery.

A Spring modern jacket or blazer because it’s time to put that trenchcoat on hold for the moment.  Really!  It’s a classic, you  know it, so you’ll wear it next year.  Layer that blazer on top of a cardigan and blouse or add an oversize scarf if you´re like me and get cold in a temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Espadrilles.  Besides signaling days of sand and beach, espadrilles are also very comfy on your feet.  They’ll be perfect for those flee market strolls.

A flamboyant pair of pants.  I don’t usually go by what others are wearing or thinking, but if it´s Olivia Palermo then that´s another story.  Just by wearing them, you´re already proving your strong personality.  People with strong personalities go far in life!

Anything with stripes on it because that’s a classic that you never want to put on hold.  An umbrella will come in handy for Spring season.

A neon clutch because they’re easy to carry and they pop.  Don’t forget your sunblock!

    I want an orange tree so much. I know that I could grow one outside, but I would love to have this beauty inside.
    Happy Thursday.
