I've Been Shopping

Okay so it was just window's shopping.  Hee-hee.

Ahhhhh.  The first day of Spring and all I can do is daydream.  I love shopping.  Well maybe not as much as I did 10 years and 20 pounds ago but  I still LOVE shopping. 
Especially in the Spring.  Everything's so bright, new, bold and colorful.  Even as a child I was insanely crazy about shopping for clothes.  Loved it from day one.  (Little secret, my son loves it too, and got it honestly).  And during spring is was all about the Easter outfit.  I miss those days when it was so important to have everyone dressed in new clothes and accessories from head to toe.  In the 60's we still wore Easter bonnets, coordinating socks and shiny patent leather shoes.  And of course it wouldn't be complete without a little wicker handbag and usually a light weight sweater.  In the 80's I was still doing the same thing with Ty.  No, I wasn't buying him cute dresses and bonnet sillies!  Shopping for Easter outfits and putting together the perfect Easter basket was heaven for me.

All the coral jewelry and accessories available are so pretty.
Don't you just love the coral and pink together with a touch of yellow?
Look at this cute cup holder/note set!  I'm ready to coordinate my car now too.  I'm really crazy about that pattern and the coral and white which a touch of lime.

This bold orange ring is fabulous!   I remember when costume jewelry was so out.  You didn't dare wear anything that wasn't REAL.  This is so much more fun.  When I was little I love playing in my Grandma's satin boxes loaded with old rhinestone jewelry.

This dress looks so comfortable and casual while still exuding class and looking chic.

And look at this stylish lunch totes.  Such cool colors.  I'll take one of everything please.

So does anyone else have Spring shopping fever or is it just me?
Make it a colorful week y'all!

BTW,  All these photos were taken from the J.C.Penneys website.  I wasn't asked to post about them.  I just got excited and wanted to share.
