“You can have whateva you like. You can have whateva you like…” – Anya Marino, folk cover of T.I.’s hit***
There is nothin’ we love like whipping out a new spring dress when the air is still a lil chilly. And it’s so timely – now that we’ve discovered folk covers of hip hop songs, we’re really into pairing two things that aren’t supposed to go together. Red wine and shrimp. Spring dresses and cool air. Open toed boots. Hip hop and folk singers. Having a new spring wardrobe and not being completely broke. You get the drift.
So what are some cute spring work / day dresses that don’t break the bank? Banana is kicking off the new season with some cute ones. Here’s a do, and a don’t.
Don’t: No waistline = no go.

The weather this weekend was like a spoon full of sugar for the soul. Walking outside and smelling the smells of spring reminded me of another of life’s great debates. Which is better: summer to fall or winter to spring? During the Fall of ’09, we decided to give the win to fall and call it a day (keep in mind, Georgia summer is H-O-T). However, this weekend, with a longing for cook outs, Alumni Lawn, listening to Deana Carter’s “We Danced Anyway” (for more on this one, look forward to the upcoming post on Teenage Angst), Sea Island bachelorette weekends (featured here), a boxer puppy, white shorts, and day drinking outside we realized…it might have to go to spring. So, dearest soul sisters, if Train’s new song has won you over and makes you feel like frolicking in the green grass, please do share…what are your favorite things about spring?

As you know, there is nothing elaney loves like the onset of a new season, and there is no better way to celebrate warm weather than a mexican fiesta! Having ladies only? Treat your guests to a low carb margarita - they’ll appreciate it while trying to get ready for bathing suit season. Who knew you can have your cake, and drink it too!

Ahhh it’s late February – and that means it’s spring in Georgia! One thing we love love love about spring is really short white shorts. Now, obvi you can’t pull the white ones out until after Easter, and 50′s are not quite warm enough to bare your (soon to be tan) legs. But it’s definitely time to peruse them in the stores!
