The Hounds of Spring

As you may know, I love anything featuring houndstooth. Perhaps my obsession began with the "Hey Baby" No Doubt music video featuring Gwen clad from head to toe in the print, but who knows? Normally, the houndstooth print brings to mind winter and heavy, woolen fabrics, however the J. Crew pixelated houndstooth skirt reinvents the fabric for spring. I really love how the houndstooth pattern has been blown up in bright pinks and reds as opposed to the more classic black and white. The colors featured on this skirt lend themselves to endless styling options, but my favorite is with lavender, hence my hyacinth (lavender) J. Crew Edie and Jackie crewneck.

As you can see these pastels and bright colors mixed with our 80+ degree weather are giving me a case of Spring Fever! I'm excited about breaking out some of the pastels and bright colors that have been hibernating in my closet, such as these hounds!
