Welcome gals! Yesterday in Bible study the leader asked us to begin our time by going around the circle and sharing our favorite spring flower. I said tulips, but every time I woman would mention another flower I’d want to change my answer. Haha! Are you like that, too? Honestly, I just love so many flowers that brighten the landscape during spring. Maybe you’d like to share your favorite spring bloom in the comments below. That would be fun! But first, let’s check out this simple stripe midi skirt ensemble. It’s perfect for walking through the botanical gardens this time of year.
I’ve wanted a cotton jersey knit midi skirt like this for years, but just got this one recently. Having always admired them on other women, I thought it would be perfect for vacation, but also for home or running errands on a normal day.
Right now I definitely need a jacket or cardi with the skirt. I love this pale pink denim jacket for pairing with simple skirts, jeans, chinos or even shorts later on. It’s not especially heavy and has some stretch in it, too. I especially love the light, light pink.
Yep. Still loving this simple white tee. I also bought the red one, and I’ll be pairing it with this navy and white midi skirt, as well. You could also wear a green, yellow, orange or pink tee with this simple skirt.
I had originally ordered a medium in the skirt, but sent it back for a small. I think you want a skirt like this to fit comfortably, but close to the body. I’ve provided several other midi and maxi length skirt options in the widget below, too.
The skirt feature an elasticized waist band with a true drawstring, too. I enjoy the front slash pockets and the slit at the sides of the hemline. I don’t feel like the pockets add any visual weight or size since they lay flat to the body.
While I love these dainty pink sandals, I have a feeling I’ll be wearing my Keds with this skirt a good bit, too.
Another Michael Kors Spring Sale purchase, this pale pink rose studded camera bag is perfect for carrying the essentials. It’s still marked down, but I got an extra 25% off during the spring sale. Ladies, whatever handbag brand you prefer, you definitely need to sign up for that brand’s emails and notices. But you can also shop Nordstrom Rack and Nordstrom sale pages for great handbag deals.

Blessed for My Day
As much as I love tulips and other spring flowers, they never bloom long enough for my liking. They lose their vibrancy quickly and fade completely over time. But the Word of the Lord does not fade or lose its vibrancy. In fact, my experience is that the longer I walk this earth the more vibrant and penetrating God’s Word becomes in my life. It not only delights my heart, but it pierces it, guards it, directs it and even changes it.
Definitely share your favorite flower with me. I’d love to know what flowers you enjoyed as you walked this morning or the blooms that are growing in your own yard. But I’d also love it if you’d share with us all a scripture that is vibrant in your heart and mind right now. What verse from the Bible is blooming in your heart today?
