Even though I’m no longer a student, I still look forward to spring break. Only now, the break part means something different now that I’m a mom.

I used to jet off with friends as soon as I got the chance when I was back in college, but now I look forward to actually spending quality time around my hometown with my family! After the holiday rush of winter, it’s the first chance I get to slow down and truly enjoy the new season with the people I love. I can’t wait for my favorite springtime activities, like picnics in the park, weekend trips to the farmer’s market and exploring new museums with Narayan.

Being relaxed but on-the-go requires a very specific outfit, and this flutter sleeve dress from LOFT, in a new, bohemian take on floral is an instant winner- not only is it elegant yet laid-back, but also it can be easily styled for a variety of activities and dressed up or down in an instant (you never know when you’ll stumble across the perfect dinner spot after lounging all day in the park)!  

For a day exploring the local Children’s Discovery Museum, I paired it with a blush clutch, stud earrings and my new sunglasses. This trench is the perfect topper for a windy spring day requiring a light coat, and once our daytime explorations ended, all I did was touch-up my lipstick before heading to our favorite Italian restaurant for dinner.
