Is it just me or are skinny belts everywhere lately? I LOVE the look, especially when paired with vintage jeans. I kind of even want a red one after reading the article linked above. I love this one in deep wine from one of my favorite local makers.
Did you happen to catch any of Elizabeth Suzann’s warm weather preview on Instagram in the last few days? I grabbed a screen shot of what looks like some Clyde style shorts (hooray for shorts!) and a cropped linen tank. The simplicity of these items is very appealing.

Last year at this time I hosted a fun giveaway to celebrate the blog turning one. I loved hearing from so many of you, and it was great to be able to give something back. Since that was a year ago… that means the blog is turning two this week!! Check back before the weekend, I have something fun in works for Seasons + Salt’s second birthday!
And just for fun, what I was styling exactly two years ago – a look I still rock today!
Happy Easter friends! xo
