Spring Fever and Other Afflictions

Last week I wasn’t able to bring you any new outfit pics.  Mostly because I spent the week laying around in my PJ’s and hacking up a lung after being diagnosed with bronchitis.

When I came home from the doctor and shared my diagnosis with my family, they felt sorry for me laughed and in their best Sweet Brown impersonations said “I got bronchitis!  Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

If you’re not yet aware of the origin of their mockery, then check out this video of YouTube sensation Sweet Brown.

Trust me, you will sing that all day.

Bronchitis aside, I’ve been suffering from another, more pleasant affliction…spring fever!  That one was a little easier to cure thanks to some unseasonably warm days last week.  A mani/pedi and my new open toed flats did the trick quite nicely.

I stopped by Old Navy last week to find a new pair of boyfriend jeans like my bloggy friend Carly of Thirty Something Fashion posted about HERE.  Unfortunately my Old Navy didn’t have them in my size but I did find this green and white gingham shirt, so it was still a successful trip.

I was so excited that it warmed up enough for me to finally wear my super cute new leopard flats from Sole Society.  These shoes are incredibly comfortable and well made.  I’m a huge fan of this brand and will definitely be buying more.

Like these.

Or these.

And definitely these.

 It’s Your Turn:  Are you suffering from spring fever too?  What are some of your favorite pick me ups on winter days?

  • You are a gorgeous bronchitis sufferer!
    I am home in my jammies recovering from a horrid virus and don’t look even remotely cute.
    Darling shoes. And might I add, I love your hair. It’s so healthy looking.

  • Sorry about the bronchitis. Ick. But I love the shoe inspiration.


  • Funny, you don’t look like you feel like poo! No, you look springy and pretty and happy. Just goes to show you how much a camera can lie.
    Very cute shoes, shirt, bangle, etc … some fairly sneaky color combinations that work wildly well!
    Hope you have a much better week, Miss Alison. Now go put on a jacket before you catch your death!

  • You look beautiful Alison! Love the shoes – about to go check out Sole Society myself 🙂

    Love that shirt! And THOSE shoes! I’ve never heard of sole society, but I just checked out their website and its super cute! I will be ordering some spring flats soon! I really like those green ones you featured

  • super cute, simple outfit.

  • Well you certainly look healthy and well rested. Hope you’re feeling 100% again. I had bronchitis in the fall and it wasn’t fun.

    I love ON for their button downs. I got boyfriend jeans at The Gap a few weeks ago. A little more expensive than ON but they’re great. They’ll be my #MondayMingle feature this week 🙂
