Reasons Why I Can't Wait for Spring + JORD Giveaway

Hello, lovelies and welcome back! The past few days in Pittsburgh have been absolutely beautiful! It was well over 70 the other day and I was super bummed I had to spend all day inside. I don't think Spring has officially sprung (especially considering its only 41 this morning), but it's getting pretty darn close. All of this beautiful weather has got my head full of blooming flowers and sunnier days. So, in commemoration of this lovely weather and the approaching springtime, I've decided to put together a list of things I'm most excited for this upcoming season!





This watch was gifted to me by JORD watches for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


5 Reasons Why I Can't Wait Another Minute For Spring:

1. Longer days
I'm 100% that person whose mood changes with the weather. I hate how quickly it gets dark now. I'm just happier when things are bright. I've already started to notice a change, but I'm soo ready for it to be light out until like 9PM. Soon!!

2. Spring cleaning
Okay, this is an odd one to get excited about, but I love getting into everything, purging what I don't need and feeling fresh and clean for the springtime. I honestly feel lighter when I get rid of a bunch of things that just s.i.t. in my apartment. You know that drawer you barely open and just push things around in if you ever do open it? I very strongly dislike that drawer. Spring cleaning gives me an excuse to go through the things I own and figure out what I need and what is just taking up space and weighing me down. Especially with my upcoming move this summer, this year's spring cleaning/purging will be crucial!

3. Spring clothes!!
Floral dresses, floral tops, floral jewelry, floral EVERYTHING. Okay, that might be a bit over the top, but I'm all about the florals (even my bedspread sports pretty burgundy flowers. (**see below pictures) Also, colors. Lots and lots of colors and flowy outfits! Everything light and beautiful is what I want to wear during the springtime. I seriously can't wait to pair all of my spring outfits with my beautiful spring inspired JORD watch! This outfit is just a tease of what is in store for Spring. Pastels, florals, lace and a beautiful light wood accent. This watch is just the right amount of springtime earthiness (definitely not a word but I'm using it anyway) -- light, bright, natural and inviting. It's everything I could want in an accent piece!






4. Outdoor activities
One of the occupational hazards of living in Pittsburgh is the cold weather in the winter. One of the reasons I get so excited for Spring is that I can finally go outside again for the pure reason of wanting to go outside and breath in the fresh air. I love sitting on my porch when it gets nice out and reading a book. Or going for a walk in the park nearby. Or even getting off my butt and going for a run. These are things I can never do in the winter months because it's just too darn cold.

5. Birds chirping
This is another odd one, but I love the sound of birds chirping. Really, I just love the sound of any and all life outside. Winter is so sad because most everyone stays where it's warm, and I miss out on the sounds of life. I love keeping my windows open in the warmer months and waking up to the sounds of birds chirping in the morning. It's my favorite way to wake up! I will definitely be a happier person when I can do this again.
