The Bistro & The Flower Shop



I must admit, if I had to choose a favorite season, it'd be spring! The temperature is just right, the flowers are blooming and bringing color back to our surroundings, and the days are longer and filled with sunshine. It's perfect! And what could be a better way to spend a spring day than having lunch at a bistro and shopping at a flower shop?

What's spring without flowers? And what's a preppy wardrobe without embroidered belts?

JT Spencer was kind enough to send me these two beautiful belts for reviewing purposes, and I love them! They're made in America, based in Virginia, and fantastic quality. The embroidery is beautifully done and they have seersucker lining the inside. which I think adds a prefect, extra little touch of preppy. They're wider than most female belts, but not too wide in my opinion. I feel very comfortable wearing them and they're perfect for all seasons. 

The thoroughbred belt is especially perfect for Derby day! Who else is excited?! 
I'm considering having a little Derby Day Party this year. If you friends have any suggestions I'd love to hear them!
Have a lovely week everyone!

  1. We always have a Mint Julep part on the first Saturday in May. One of my favorite sports events. But, anything that brings friends together is enough! BTW, love the belts, I have several
