Hello there and Happy SPRING!!! It’s finally here. It’s Jillian from Cornflake Dreams (and like Melissa, I live in the Midwest). We have survived the worst winter ever. I am SOOO excited for warmer weather, and when it arrives, I will be ready with all of my favorite spring essentials…
This spring, when snow turns into rain, you will need a great rain coat. It should be waterproof — which sounds obvious, but you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find a jacket that is stylish AND waterproof. I like the Romera Jacket from North Face. It comes in black, tan and blue. Also, don’t forget rain boots! I have had my Hunter Boots for years, and they are a lifesaver on flooded sidewalks and pothole puddles.
All of that rainy weather means you might be spending a little time inside — so curl up with a good book. I recommend The Girl You Left Behind by JoJo Moyes or Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple.
I also like to treat myself to nice lotion to soothe my dry winter skin. Aveda hand relief + foot relief creams work wonders and Fresh hesperides grapefruit body lotion has the most refreshing citrus scent.
And finally, now that it is warmer, you can ditch the snow boots and grab some pastel ballet flats. Tieks are my favorite flats — they are super comfortable and the unique design allows them to be folded up and thrown into your bag.
Thank you, Melissa, for inviting me on your blog 🙂 Stop by Cornflake Dreams for more style (and travel!) posts.
