Hello ladies! What a day I had yesterday. James and I drove the less than two-hour trip to Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday to stay at a nice hotel for a couple of nights so we could photograph some spring fashions coming to DFMD and resort clothing. I have an Instagram reel coming out tomorrow and then a blog post on Thursday with some beautiful resort style dresses. So, since it definitely doesn’t look like a warm-weather resort anywhere near me right now, we selected a hotel with a nice, well-lit indoor pool. You gotta do what you gotta do. Ha!
I’ve been studiously scrolling through the newest arrivals at our favorite retailers lately and ordering things that will help us build a beautiful and versatile spring wardrobe. Of course you won’t need everything I’ll include in my DFMD Spring Wardrobe because you probably have a lot of the basics. But I’m planning to share an entire shoppable Spring Wardrobe in just a few weeks. And I wanted to give everything I share in the curated wardrobe a thorough try before I recommend it to you.
I have to tell you, I’ve picked some winners! I absolutely loved wearing these clothes yesterday…and I wish it were warm enough to have worn them outside. Indeed, it will be a while before I can wear these clothes, but I will start sharing them later this week. In fact, you’ll see some of them modeled in tomorrow’s video. Yay!
But because I’m so excited about the Spring Capsule Wardrobe I’m putting together for you, I couldn’t resist sharing with you now the pieces I already have in and have test-tried. I’m not promising that these are marked down right now; some may be, but I’m not taking the time to check since things change so quickly. But I do know these early spring styles generally go quickly.
I can tell you that the pink stripe relaxed button down and the cotton fisherman sweater both fit true to size, and they look beautiful and cheerful together or separately. Both are so versatile. And the pink stripe relaxed button down pairs perfectly with the pink tank you’ll see below.
The sunrise ombre kaftan is one of three amazingly beautiful and oh-so-glamorous resort-worthy dresses from Walker & Wade that I’ll be sharing later this week. I have a size M/L in it for a very nice fit. And I’ll be showing you the gorgeous pink high-neck one piece swimsuit under the kaftan. I sized up to a 12 in the suit for a very nice fit. (I’m 5’8″ and generally have to size up two sizes in swimsuits for the right torso length.) I’ve ordered the beach cover-up shorts to wear over the swimsuit, but they haven’t arrived yet.
The white slim boyfriend jeans are my favorite white jeans I have EVER put on my body. No kidding. They’re thick enough to not show all the lumps and bumps and undie lines, and the silhouette is darling. They do run large. I’m wearing mostly 30 or 31 in jeans these days and I wear a 29 in these very comfortably.
I bought the puff-sleeve crewneck t-shirt in black, but it comes in other colors. It has just the most minimal puffing in the shoulder, and I sized up to a large. I didn’t add much new jewelry to my collection for spring, but this pearl ball bracelet was a must-have. It will be so impactful.
You’ll find everything I’ve ordered so far in the shopping widget below. You can click on items to shop them or just to find out more details. I can’t wait to show you these items in outfits.

Blessed for My Day
The Bible makes it clear throughout that there are blessings reserved for those who diligently pursue a godly lifestyle. That doesn’t mean all will go perfectly for that person. We live in a broken, fallen world and we all, unfortunately, suffer the consequences of that. But God does indeed bless the woman, man, boy or girl who tries to live a life that pleases Him.
Of course, the first step in living a life of righteousness is to get right with God. The only way we can do that is through accepting the gift of salvation offered by Jesus Christ through His death on the cross and resurrection from the grave. When we trust Him as our Savior and make Him the Lord of our life, He comes into our life and empowers us to live that godly life. He changes us from the inside out and gives us “the mind of Christ” so that we can have a godly perspective of life. Have you begun this pursuit of righteous living? Can you testify that God has indeed blessed you because of your choices?
One who pursues righteousness and loyalty finds life, righteousness, and honor. ~ Proverbs 21:21
