Bright Spring Work Outfit // via My New Favorite Outfit

One of the most challenging things about dressing up for work is breaking out of boring basics. We love that Ginny of My New Favorite Outfit's  belted pencil skirt gets a dash of neon with a bright shirt & statement necklace but would still be perfect business casual attire!

Winterizing a Summer Item // via The Style Files

All of us Midwesterners are ready to break out our spring wardrobes and anxious for warm weather! We thought Valerie at the Style Files' post on making spring clothes work in cold weather is too perfect.

Valerie takes a sundress, layers on boots & sheer tights and voila! See how to get the look in her new post!

Spring Fever

Seriously, where is spring? Last time this year in the  Midwest we were breaking out the shorts and tank tops - but this year it's still a snowy wonderland {at least in Wisconsin}. 

How do we get through this grueling winter weather? Blogging about everything springy!

Check out some of our favorite spring posts this week -

Healthy Chicken Enchiladas // via Life, Scraps & Ink

You don't have to be Martha Stewart to create delicious meals from scratch! We love this recipe for chicken enchiladas with avocado cream from Wisconsin blogger Life, Scraps & Ink and her helpful hint about using the slow-cooker to cook shredded chicken while at work! 

We are anxious to try out her recipe this week!
