Happy spring! We’ve got the scoop on how to make the most of this sunny season! Celebrate today with these six simple steps:
1. Sweep out the Snow
Dust off those sandals, pry open the stuffed drawers and donate, declutter, and dazzle your way to a sizzling style. Remember, any winter things you didn’t wear the past 4 months go in the donate pile! Sweater: Blackfive, $27; Skirt: Romwe, $9; Heels: ShopAkiria, $40; Monogram Bracelet: Alison and Ivy, $230
2. Grill & Chill
There’s just something about the sun in your hair & the scent of spring cookin’ in the air. Get outside and taste spring! Weather it’s a picnic in the grass, BBQ on the grill, or even just sipping tea on a stroll if it’s still chilly. Follow these directions and our recipe above for delicious BBQ ribs: Sprinkle thyme and coriander on ribs and bake in oven for 2 hours at 280 degrees. Slather the rest of the ingredients on the ribs, then transfer to top rack on grill for 4-5 minutes each.
