March Madness: Sweet 16

Spring is finally here (I’m sure those of you in the colder parts of the globe are even more excited than I am)!

Cool Nights

I can’t believe fall is here already! The days seem to go by more and more quickly, growing shorter as winter nears. Autumn is my favorite time of the year—I love it when the temperature drops to that perfect “sweater weather” and I can start pulling out my overcoats, faux furs, and ankle boots (a.k.a. my fall staples!).
