The weekend may have felt like it went by in a blink, but so many things happened. It's really only until this moment that I realize how much I actually did do. From deciding to attend Lucky Fabb to meeting with a client for a little personal styling session, it was quite the weekend! I really can't wait to share more about both soon!
Since it started to get a little chilly around here, it seemed so fitting to bring out one of my favorite blazers. The color and texture is what gives it that special flare and to think I was going to pass this one up?!
How was your weekend?

Either I'm just in full Spring mode or I secretly am dreaming up a vacation, but dresses have been on my mind. Okay, I've got a case of Spring fever and wanderlust going on. It's really hard not to have both when there are so many great dresses for Spring and if you ask me all these could work in the Fall (I know, I know the last thing you want to think about is cold temperatures). #2 from Ruche has been giving me major temptation and all their dresses are 20% till today so I may just have to hit click finally. Anyone else have a case of Spring fever and some wanderlust?
Yay for Friday! Have a great weekend!

Some days are just waaay better than you expect. It's even better when it's mid-week and you want to high five someone because you know the week is all down hill from here. That was yesterday. It was really good. I unexpectedly got out early. These blog pictures were able to be snapped. Annnd I got off early. I know that was already mentioned, but it's worth mentioning again.
This outfit is a prime example of my love for repeats. But this shift dress is one of those pieces I knew I would have so much fun styling different ways (see here and here). If you're looking to add a little playfulness, print mixing with floral and a touch of leopard is a win win combination.
Thanks for stopping by! xo

Now let's talk blazer. I mean this bold printed blazer. This is one that I feel head over heels for. Bold yet neutral print, faux leather lapel, and under $35. It's a recent purchase from H&M and no not from the sale rack. There really was no way I was coming home without it.
Thank you so much for reading! Happy Tuesday!

It's safe to say that with the official arrival of Spring, it's only natural to want to pick up anything with flowers and so many of these pieces have me wanting nothing more than to wear pretty florals from here on out. Whether it's for everyday or maybe a little getaway, adding a floral piece can never be wrong. I've been eyeing #4 for weeks, but #5 would be so fun to mix with stripes. Spot a fave that you can see adding?
Happy of happiest Fridays!

A few weeks back I spotted that Sanctuary track skirt and had to try it on. It's unique cut and detailing that gives it a sporty chic look is what caught my eye. But that print is pretty darn fabulous too. I resisted, which took will power, and I think it paid off. Of course, I would find a great alternative to it at Forever 21. Both are reasonably priced, but for under $20 it's hard to say no to the save.
So would you pick the spend or the save?
Hope you're having a great week! xo

I have to say that I'm a big ol' mushy sap when it comes to my other half. Bring on the cards and flowers. Nothing fancy but little thoughtful things. I can share this kind of stuff with you, right? It's kinda crazy to think that today marks 6 years of dating! Like how the heck did 6 years fly by? But there's no big plans or any plans for that matter. After spending so many years long distance, it's just nice knowing that we're not in that phase this year. That is satisfying.
And with a good day to like today, I think pleats are only appropriate. This pleated skirt was one of those purchases I bought waaay before I was ready to wear it, but it's getting plenty of use now. It's just one of those instant uplifting mood boosters!
Happy Tuesday friends!

Maybe it's all this sunshine lately (not a bad thing at all), but I know that soon there will be days that will too hot for jackets. I think we are pretty clear how I love jackets from this weeks posts see here and here. When I started to see all these kimonos pop up, I couldn't have been happier. There a great alternative to a jacket and won't have me looking like I'm overheating in 80-90 degree weather. They come in cute prints and have such ease to them! Whether it's a simple tee and jeans or possibly a bathing suit cover up, I'm craving one in every floral and cute print I see! The first one even has a some print mixing going on in the back-super cute! Can you see yourself picking one up?
