Spring is in the Air Blog Challenge Day 1

Today starts Amber and my blog challenge! We're so excited, and we've been waiting for this day to come! Yesterday was officially the first day of spring!

It starts today and goes until Friday! The questions are:

1. What do you look forward to most about spring and what about winter are you going to miss? 
(March 21)

2. What's your favorite spring outfit {or two}?
(March 22)

3. Where are you/would you be headed for spring break this year (real or ideal)?
(March 23)

4. What are some recommendations for products you'll be using this spring as you're headed outdoors more?
(March 24)

5. What recipe or food do you look forward to most during the springtime?
(March 25)

So, for today, here are my thoughts on spring and winter:

What I'm looking forward to in the spring:
{1} The appropriateness of wearing flip flops and wedge sandals again. It doesn't always stop me in the winter, but I love sandals. I really like these Tory Burch espadrille wedges, but I can't decide what they'd go with:

{2} sundresses; I love all the dresses that anthropologie has right now, and I really want to get a maxi dress this season. I've never had one so I don't know where to look. What's your favorite maxi for this season?


{3} reliably warm weather. Yes, I live in Florida so you don't feel sorry for me, but I have to tell you that going from 75* to 40* to 78* to 60* is not fun. I don't normally check the weather and have left the house frequently dressed for the wrong weather lately. 

What I'll miss about winter:
{1} I'll miss having a cool house. When it gets so hot out, it gets really expensive to keep the temperature down, so it's never as chilly as it is during the winter. Oh well, I guess I'll just turn on a few more fans.

{2} jackets, pants, and boots. I love love jackets and I love love pants. I don't wear shorts, so sundresses are delightful, but I'll always really miss layering.
{3} cozy foods like chili, soups, and crock pot meals. I know there's still a place for them in the spring and summer, but that place is much smaller...
