Spring fever..

Hello all my long lost readers! I apologize for the unannounced hiatus however this winter hasn't exactly been the best for me. Career changes, newly single, family crap - needless to say I am all ready for spring! Here in New York it hasn't exactly felt like it yet, but a girl can dream! I should hopefully be heading to Miami in the coming months so at least I will get my dosage of sun and sand... Many thanks to all who commented on my previous post, I was very pleasantly surprised at the positive response/consensus! Since it is officially spring, I hereby refuse to post anything having to do with anything even slightly reminiscent of winter clothing. Am I thinking too far ahead? Maybe. Do I care? Nope.
First off, what is warm weather without madras?! (This is also to let the Preppy Princess know that I definitely, definitely do not dislike madras in any way shape or form.. or seersucker for that matter!! :-)

Target Xhilaration Plaid Patchwork Swimwear ($14.99 each for top&bottom) I grabbed these the last time I was there, managed to get the last one in my size! You can't beat the price..

Next up, Patchwork Bermudas from American Eagle - on sale for $39.50!
And also on the bargain front, Patchwork Shorts from Delias ($29.50)
I can't wait to get to Miami. And I'm trying to decide if I can justify buying these, because I've been in love with them for months now:

Dolce Vita Athens T-Strap in Brass Gold at Pink Mascara ($92.00) So. In. Love.

The newest from Miss Trish of Capri - Ball and Chain Sandal at Kitson ($245.00)
I'm also lusting after this bikini - it reminds me of a Mexican serape - which reminds me of Mexico.. which depresses me...

Rainbow Bikini at Victoria's Secret (top - $50, bottom $49)
Some finds from Snappy Turtle:

Starfish Shoulder Bag - ($140) Great beach bag..

Roberta Roller Rabbit the Fredericka Kurta
- ($68.00)
Don't ask me about the name of this thing, but I think it looks so great over a white tank.. Yum!

Can't beat the price on this adorable Nantucket-reminiscent necklace from Forever21 -
Whale Necklace ($8.90)
I've been in love with this ring as well, don't know why I haven't bought it yet as the price is phenomenal:
Rachel Leigh: Audrey Bow Ring at Pink Mascara ($44)
Also from Pink Mascara, this adorable T-Bags Bubble Dress in Navy ($176)
Guess I must be on a navy kick, found this great dress at J. McLaughlin

Edie Silk Sheath ($275.00)

Also, found this fantastic clutch - it's so hard to find something completely neutral that you can wear with just about anything in spring/summer, but I think this bamboo one might just do it!

Bamboo Clutch ($150)

Last but not least, I think this is perfect for the New York urban windowsill garden.. Just make sure you don't try to drink them when you're tired/drunk..

Flowers in a Can from Fred Flare ($10)
Oh, I can't wait for spring, with warm temps, blooming flowers, and love (if I'm lucky?)...

There is a *do* like Madras and seersucker, you really do! :-)
And more evidence today there's a Fashion God watching over me? The divine little bow ring from Pink Mascara you pointed out! (What a fab site!) IMHO, you have exquisite taste, but you must temper this as it's coming from a mere MAP (Midwest American Princess)

So glad you're back! Well, a fresh start right?!?

Love all your picks, I too have my eye on the bamboo clutch, too cute.
