“Through playful lips made of yarn that fragile
Capricorn unraveled words like moths upon old scarves”
Bedhead. Bare face. I unexpectedly dug this pale pink sweater out of my dresser last night and felt compelled to style it sweetly. While it feels odd to present myself in any color that isn’t a shade of black, brown, or grey, it seems like a nice way to welcome the strange and slow transition into spring. I’m longing for the blossoming of flowers and fashion trends. In the meantime, I’m clinging to my bottle of Jasmine by Demeter to keep springtime memories alive. Especially with this windchill. I have a few little numbers stashed away in the back of my closet just waiting to be worn in warmer weather. I adore layering, but sometimes a piece just has to shine on its own, sans jacket. And so I’m counting down the days until I can throw on a mini dress and rock it without hassle. I have a few particular pieces in mind, and most of them are still attached to their price tags.
What will you be wearing this spring?
This is a bit of a lifestyle post today, but it’s below zero in the Burgh, and I couldn’t be more frozen. I didn’t even know it could get this cold in Pennsylvania! Almost everything is closed due to the the polar vortex, so I’m spending some quality time at home with plenty of mini coconut donuts, chai tea, and blankets. I could use a conversation, though, so feel free to chat with me on Twitter. I hope you’re keeping warm and cozy wherever you are in the world.
As I prepare for my second semester of interning with CollegeFashionista, I can’t help but reflect on how many fashionable people I’ve encountered while writing for the What to Wear column. Check out a few of the best looks I’ve captured in the city.

Sending a big thank you to all of you beautiful and stylish ladies for helping me out and keeping Pittsburgh glam! I can’t wait to write for the Fashionista Spotlight column this spring.
