April, Come She Will


The primary thing making me happy right now: setting the clocks forward. Yes, we lost an hour of sleep last night, but not having the sun go down at five o' clock makes it totally worth it.

The accessories I want to wear all season: Anything from Alice Pleasance. My darling Emmy posted a few of her rings and I was instantly smitten. My favorite pieces: the hair clips. And everything is totally affordable.



The person I want to dress like this spring: If you want to get technical, I actually want to dress like her year round, but somehow Rachel Bilson looks amazing all the time. I want to go shopping with her! She always looks chic, but not disgustingly trendy. Great bags, great shoes, and everything fits well. And I love her scarves.



The thing I promised you a while ago: My perfect spring playlist. Finally got around to making it after listening to some newly posted spring tracks from Jeffro. My spring tunes this year are plucky and exciting. They should make you want to dance around! Because I do.

1. Restaurant - The Thrills (Somehow The Thrills manage to provide the perfect tunes for winter or spring. I adore them to no end.)
2. No Sunlight - Death Cab for Cutie
3. Sleep the Clock Around - Belle & Sebastian
4. Heavy Metal Drummer - Wilco
(Makes me want to be in Martha's Vineyard, sitting on the dock watching the ferries come in.)
5. Paris - Yael Naïm
6. Wantin' Her Again - Ben Kweller
(Ben Kweller is country! Ah! But this song is cute.)
7. No Such Thing - John Mayer
8. Daylight - Matt & Kim
9. Measuring Cups - Andrew Bird
10. Earth Angel - Death Cab for Cutie
(Cover of a fifties song. Adorable.)
11. Fitz and the Dizzyspells - Andrew Bird
(From Noble Beast. Insanely happy sounding.)
12. Be Born - Tally Hall
13. I'm Yours - Jason Mraz
(I first heard this in Los Angeles, so it reminds me of being there.)
14. Magic - Ben Kweller
(This makes me think of summer camp. Or jumping into a lake. For some reason.)
15. Homecoming King - Guster
16. Les Champs-Élysées - Joe Dassin
17. Island in the Sun - Weezer
(I think I first heard this in a Disney Channel Original Movie and have loved it ever since.)
18. Young Pilgrims - The Shins
19. April Come She Will - Simon & Garfunkel
20. The Midnight Choir - The Thrills
(MY FAVORITE SONG EVER.)
21. What Would Jay-Z Do? - Ben Lee
22. World Spins Madly On - The Weepies

Only thirteen days until spring! Get excited! You know I am.

hmmm never realised this but your style is actually closely akin to Rachel Bilson's. Interesting....

Anyways. YOUR GOING TO GET ME ONE OF THOSE RINGS FOR MY BIRTHDAY AND WE'LL GO GALLAVANTING ABOUT TOWN SHOWING PEOPLE ITS AMAZINGNESS AND BEING COMPLETELY SILLY AND RIDICULOUS.

In return I will love you forever....maybe I'll even let you try it on if you stay in my good graces.

It'll be a ball.

As I frantically download all of your musical choices, I stare at Rachel Bilson's perfection. Her and Katie Holmes should bree this perfect preppy hippie hybrid child!
