With spring here, a sense renewal is in the air. Embrace all the good times ahead that you create, starting now, according to our girl-on-the-scene Molly Bayme.

…take a morning swim instead of that yoga class or getting a scone. The cool blue water will be a bracing wake-up call to start the day.

…wear a bright shade of lipstick for an entire day. A new shade, in fact. It could make you feel even more confident and powerful.

…buy your favorite desert dish, like a petit four, that you think would be impossible to make. Choose the brightest ones with your favorite colors and use them as a dining table centerpiece until you’re ready to serve it. These are from Paige’s Bakehouse in the Austin area.

…instead of emailing someone, send a letter to a loved one just to let them know that you are thinking about them and love them. Remember the feeling of receiving a hand-written letter in the mail addressed to you before email and texting took over?

…have a stay-cation in your own city. Staying in a nice hotel and eating/shopping downtown will make you feel like a tourist in your own city.

…buy those shoes you’ve been eyeing in the window display for what seems like forever. You will totally get your money’s worth and you’ll feel unstoppable while strutting in them.

…add a wildly printed neck scarf for a fun pop of color. What better way to wear one with your outfit as a blank canvas and the scarf as the splash of color? Here is Lexicon of Style’s Alexandra Dieck wearing one of her signature scarves.
