I’m getting so excited for Easter weekend! Not only does Ryan get half a day off, but I love seeing all of our family and spending time with the ones I love most! I’m really looking forward to celebrating this special holiday with Sophie since this will be her first Easter. Oh, and the best part? Her first little easter dress!
My answer? NEVER! I love to wear white year-round! Plus, Easter is less than 2 weeks away so in my book, that is close enough to be totally acceptable. I found this adorable tank at TJ Maxx the other day and fell in love with it! I don’t wear a lot of linen because I hate to iron, but I loved this top too much to pass up. I wear tanks pretty much every day during the summer, so I know I will get a ton of use out of it this year.
Someone recently asked me how I deal with stress. I had to really think about it, because I try really hard not to focus on negative things. Of course, I am a woman and I think too much about things from time to time, but for the most part, I just stay busy. I’m a wife, mom and blogger, so it is not too hard to stay busy. I feel like I am always working on something. When I’m really feeling stressed though, I go for a jog, watch a movie or dive into a good novel. I have always loved getting lost in a good story. It is such an awesome (and healthy) escape. Lately though, I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to my growing stack of books.
If you’ve been hanging around my blog for a little while, you know how much I love fashion. I have many many different styles depending on my mood of the day, but I am usually in leggings and a tunic during the winter and fall months and in shorts and a tank or a dress during the spring and summer months. I was looking around at spring trends for the upcoming season and according to In-Style’s Top 10 Color Trends for Spring 2016, I think I’m going to like this years trends. I am a big fan of cheerful spring color. I love to wear bright and fun colors especially during the warmer months because they put me in a good mood and make me happy. Based on In-Styles top 10, I am most excited about Rose quartz, Iced Coffee, Lilac Grey and Buttercup! To me, these are classy and a little muted but still very springy and classy. I really love all the colors that will be popular this season and am so excited to start adding more color and prints into my wardrobe again.
The last couple of days have been so much warmer and have given me a huge case of spring fever. Or, maybe it’s my actual fever that is giving me spring fever. Who knows? We just got back into town from my grandmother’s house in Florida and we all caught colds of some sort while we were there, so we are feeling pretty yucky. Good thing the weather matches our moods today – thank you rainy day! If you need us, we will be snuggling up with coffee, watching movies in bed most of the day. I’m not even ashamed to say I’ve been living in sweatpants the last 2 days. We have a full weekend ahead and I have to get us all feeling better.
So, while I’m battling my actual fever, let me share a few of my spring fever wishes:
This week has been crazy. The weather has been all of the place, but I’ve still managed to walk every day. Operation Have This Baby is underway. I am so ready. I cleaned the entire house over the weekend, went on a date with my husband and I might have made a few purchases. Oops. What can I say? These Spring 2015 fashion trends are killing me! I am sort of ready to not be pregnant any more so that I can enjoy them. Although, I will miss wearing this baby bump. 🙂
Here are some of the latest fashion trends I am Ooo-ing and Ahh-ing over:
Rompers – I just bought this striped romper at Old Navy and I am in love! It’s so comfortable AND has pockets which is a huge plus in my book. I have been obsessing over so any rompers. I will definitely be in them pretty often this summer!
Colored Suede – These moccasins in Seas Mist in particular are on my wish list. I am loving all of this colored suede that is super popular right now.
Gingham – I purchased this gingham dress from Gap via ThredUp and It has been great! I was able to wear it one time while pregnant, but my almost 39 weeks bump can no longer squeeze in it without looking ridiculous. I am really looking forward to wearing it a lot more this season.
Kimonos – This paisley kimono is from Walk Trendy. I saw it and had to have it! It is no secret that I love wearing kimonos, but during pregnancy, they are even more wonderful. I have loved styling tanks with kimonos and these linen shorts (from Old Navy for $10!) pair perfectly with this one!
Linen Shorts – Again, I felt like I stole these from Old Navy. I mean, $10? I have even been able to wear them during my pregnancy thanks to the forgiving elastic waist. They have been wonderful.
Denim Vests – I showed off my new denim vest a couple of weeks ago, but I am seriously obsessed with it. I have worn it so much already! It goes great with everything!
Birkenstocks – I can’t believe Birks are back “in.” I used to wear Birkenstocks every day for years when I was growing up. They were always my favorite because they are comfortable and go with nearly everything! They have made a comeback and I am really hoping to splurge on a pair in the near future!
What fashion trends are you loving this season?
If you didn’t already know, I’m a little bit of a nerd. I have always preferred to stay in and read a good book versus going out or to the movies, etc. Speaking of, you should check out my bookshelf if you’re into that sort of thing. 😉 I was always that girl in class who actually liked to learn new things. Annoying, I know. I just can’t help it!
Since I was 5 years old, I have worn glasses. I’ve always kind of had that nerdy look about me I
suppose. I like to think I’ve grown out of it a little bit, I mean I did get contacts and all…
Every once in a while, the nerd comes back out in me. I’m lucky, because stylish eyeglasses are in style right now (Yay!!). I have worn the same glasses for a while now and decided it was time for a new pair. I went to Firmoo’s website and picked out these babies! What do you think? I’m kind of in love. It made me feel extra good when my husband told me he thought I looked “cute” in them! Thanks, Ry!
Speaking of stylish, I just scored this adorable striped dress on Eleventh Avenue (formally Groupdealz) for less than $20! Stripes are very in this year if you couldn’t tell by every store window in America. Also, I bought this denim vest at Old Navy when I was out baby shopping the other day (don’t you love how that happens?). I am kind of obsessed with it and will be wearing it for the rest of the year. For sure.
New customers to Firmoo can now receive 50% off their first pair of glasses!
What is your favorite current trend? Were you a little nerdy growing up? Or one of those “popular” types? 😉
Transitioning from winter to spring can be so tricky. The weather seems to be so back and forth for a couple of months until the temperature decides to make up it’s mind and stay warm. Until then, you need these pieces to get you through the uncertainty that is weather.
Sunglasses – Every woman needs a pair of sunglasses, especially this time of year. That bright sun is coming out to play and it’s really important to keep your eyes protected. Not to mention, they’re cute. 🙂
First off, Happy April Fools day! Do you play pranks and jokes on people for April fools? I’ve never really gotten into it like a lot of people do. I’m not really sure why…
Have you seen the new Cinderella movie? If not, you definitely should. Like, now. It is the cutest movie I’ve seen in a long time! Cinderella was one of my favorite childhood movies, so going to see this one made me feel like a little girl again.
While I was perusing Khols the other day, I discovered that Lauren Conrad has a Cinderella collection. No, I am not kidding! I am so in love with this dress. How pretty is it? It is perfect for all of these upcoming spring and summer weddings as well as church. I’ve always loved LC and her line at Khols, but now I love her even more!
What was your favorite movie as a child?
Usually, we have crazy weather during the spring months. There is no such thing as “nice” “cool” or “warm” weather in Alabama. It is either extremely hot and humid or extremely cold. For the last couple of weeks, the weather has been back and forth per usual, but the last couple of days we have been able to enjoy much needed sunny days. There is something about the sun coming out after a few rainy days that makes you feel so energized and happy. I am loving the warmth on my skin and being able to play outside with Hampton without freezing.
With all of these sunny days ahead, I desperately needed a new pair of sunglasses. I wanted a good quality pair of designer sunglasses that were affordable. Sounds crazy, yes? But, Sunglasses Shop offers great designer sunglasses from Versace to Ray-Bans for great prices!
I am loving my new sunnies and you can count on seeing them around these parts for the rest of the year. They are the perfect fit and style that I was looking for. Plus, how can you go wrong with Ralph Lauren? A good pair of sunglasses is a must for everyone. It is definitely a staple item in my collection of accessories.
Giveaway time!! Sunglasses Shop is giving away a free pair of Ralph Lauren Sunglasses from this collection to one of my lucky readers! Enter in the rafflecopter below and I will email the winner on Monday (March 30th). Good luck!
Have you been out enjoying the warmer weather?
