Wish List // Newest Fancies

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

Lady-like but with a modern take, neutrals with an edge, and pops of color are what I'm digging right now. And I definitely ordered that Pineapple print for the gallery wall in Cora's playroom. How could I not? As for #1 and #2, I'm this close to pulling the trigger and adding them to my wardrobe. Anyone else going to do the same?

Random Monday Musings

I need more lipstick in my life. Stat.

Happy Monday guys! I'm heading out to the park right now to take advantage of this gorgeous day, so thought I'd share what's been on my mind. A little random, but it's what's got me thinking. Enjoy this Monday and I hope you all have a great start to the week!

{Plaited Paper Hat}
Inexpensive and oh-so-chic for the warm weather.

I've got the traveling bug and this is all I want to do.

Ever since we removed our coffee table from our living room, it's all I want back. I miss having a place to put my coffee down or just to have something to style. I'm thinking it's time we get a coffee table back asap.

Style // New Fave Sweater

Marled Sweater in Simply Blue / Audrey Sunglasses / Tasseled Bucket Bag in White / Jessica Low Rise Jeggings / Night Moves Peep Toe Stilettos / Sailor's Knot Ring / Shop Proper Hunt watch & green ring / J.Crew bracelets / Forever21 earrings

Good morning! Sorry for being MIA these past couple of days. I took it upon myself to take a few days off from blogging just because it was my birthday. And honestly, I needed to refresh for a bit and get a few things organized in my head. A few big things are happening soon, actually one starts tomorrow and I am excited but sad all at the same time. Cora starts daycare tomorrow! I can't wait for her to make new friends and do all of the fun crafts and activities that the daycare offers, but at the same time I'm sad because I won't see her for two days out of the week.

It's funny, I've been anxiously awaiting for her to get into daycare (just part-time) so that I can dedicate more time to my Etsy shop and this blog, but now that it's finally here, I'm starting to feel that it's just a bit too soon. Crazy, huh? Something that I've wanted so badly is here and I'm whining about how sad it makes me feel. I'm sure I'll feel quite differently when I'm able to get more work done when she's in "school" (that's what we've been calling it to her so that she gets used to the term).

Anywho, let's lighten the mood, shall we? I recently went to Gap to check out their boyfriend jeans because Gaby shared that they were amazing. I completely trust her with fashion picks because she's one chic lady. So I went and tried on a bunch of cute things they had (loved the boyfriend jeans but didn't have my size), but instantly fell in love with their Marled Sweater in the Simply Blue color way. I'm usually quite picky when it comes to sweaters because I get really self-conscious about the way my arms look in them. Yes, I'm weird I know.

And that is why I love this sweater. It's extremely soft and comfortable and yet it's flattering too. I love that it's a little longer in the back, which is great for those days that I just want to lounge in black leggings (hides the booty). Even though it errs on the side of comfort, I wanted to show that you could absolutely dress it up with some heels and sparkly accessories to glam it up and take it to brunch with the girls or an impromptu date night. You'll be comfy and chic which is really the best combo, right?

Birthday, What Birthday?


Hello darlings! I'm writing this post a tad late, but I completely forgot to mention that my birthday is tomorrow! I guess I've been feeling a little underwhelmed with knowing that my birthday is quickly approaching. Somehow it came up real fast this year and I could've used a little more time before turning 32. Yes, I said 32. How did that happen so fast?? Seriously, ever since Cora was born, I feel like time is just zooming by and I can't seem to soak up everything fast enough before it disappears. Anyone else feel that way?

Anywho, I can honestly say that I'm not terribly thrilled that I'm turning 32, but I am excited for what this year will bring. Every year just keeps getting better and better (hope I didn't just jinx myself there) and I can't even imagine what the rest of this year will bring. But the idea of turning a year older just scares me because I feel like I'm losing time. Is it crazy of me to think that way? I just want to hold on to every moment with my family and friends and all of the wonderful opportunities that this blog and my Etsy shop have given to me.

I'm sure I'll get over the age thing quickly because that's life and I just need to get over it, right? And Steve's got something up his sleeve for my birthday celebration. I don't know what it is exactly, but I do know that he's been planning something secretly, so I'm super excited for that.

There are a few things that have been keeping me happy regardless of turning older and they are:

Leopard print strap leather flat sandals
These are on sale right now and I would be a fool not to snatch these up!

Texture Gathered Midi Skirt
I'm obsessed with midi skirts (so flattering!) and this color is perfect for Spring!

Fringed Leather Shopper / Suede Dolly Bag with Fringe
Kind of obsessed with fringe at the moment and these bags are definitely at the top of my must-have list.

Look All Over Beaded Clutch
I'm in desperate need of upping my clutch game and I wouldn't mind adding this one to my collection.

Found these Milo Baughman beauties on Etsy while just surfing around and can only dream of owning these one day.

Double Diamond Rug
Not that a runner is a top priority at the moment, but after spotting this rug, it just might have to be moved up the list.

Lilac Walker Garden Stool

Moroccan Pouf - White
I think we need two of these to act as ottomans in our living room. Stat.
