A Former Florida Girl in a Not-So-Tropical World

It's finally beginning to feel like spring with temperatures in the mid-forties and clear skies each day, and this little lady could not feel more alive. With this weather comes more adventures into the city and more opportunities to show off my ever-growing spring wardrobe. So when the opportunity presented itself to don this beautiful [...]
