This week I am bringing to you the second installment in what can now be considered Art of the Matter’s Monthly DIY Post!
Last weekend’s 70-degree temperatures got me in the mood for spring. I started going through my closet and pulling out all of my favorite dresses and shorts, but just like with any new season I started longing for new clothes.
