Fuschia Forsythia

When: Sunday, April 24

I love forsythia bushes. They herald in Spring blooming season for me every year. The forsythia can always be counted on to add some color to a very brown environment in Michigan. The rain clouds chose to part just in time for me to snap a few pictures in front of this lovely forsythia, which resides in my mother's back yard.

Easter eggs were on my brain when I picked out this outfit. I decided to see how colorful I could be while still looking pulled together. I love this dress! I wore it in an earlier post in a similar manner with a purple striped sweater in March, but decided to pair it with a fuchsia sweater I thrifted on Thursday. I think the fuchsia sweater is a bit fancier than my striped sweater. It worked and turned out lovely. I have NEVER worn so much color at one time but I think the color fever is catching and will show up again very soon.
