Spring Wardrobe Wishlist

As I’m writing this, it is cold and pouring rain outside. Not the kind of weather that puts you in a spring mood. However, I know underneath the thick mass of stratus clouds, the sun is somewhere just waiting to poke out and fill our lives with light and warmth. At least I think it is….

Sweet Dreams

She always dreams of satin pajamas and lace nighties instead of her worn-out yoga pants and college tee that she wears to bed every night.

The click clack of her silver metallic boots had people’s heads turning as she walked down the hall. She couldn’t help but smile as she passed the gawkers. All this attention made her feel like she on a runway at fashion week and not walking down the dimly lit hall to her next class. With…
