Floral Midi Dress c/o (Similar HERE) || Similar Floral Clutch || Pearl Hair Clip || Similar Pink Sandals || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Circle Hexagon Ring c/o || 

This week is all about floral prints that remind me of the loveliest spring day. It’s a print I wear year round and cannot get enough of. Florals always bring a smile to my face and joy to my heart. I hope you enjoy the next few days of this beautiful print as much as I do!

Today’s dress boasts a floral bouquet on top of a white background with a pink ribbon around the waist. The sleeves have a darling pleated detail that stand out and give the dress a unique touch. With a fitted bodice and box pleated midi skirt, this dress is perfect for just about any occasion be it a wedding, bridal shower, cocktail party, or simply a day out. The dress runs true to size. Using the UK measurement, I ended up being a size 6, equivalent to a US 2.

Good morning and happy Friday, friends! There’s something about a crisp white dress that just feels like spring and summer. This elegant number from Chicwish has a pointed collar, flare cuffs, and a darling floral crochet pattern throughout. There is a soft nude lining underneath and the fit is true to size.

Did anyone catch the series finale of The Big Bang Theory last night? It was one of my moms favorite shows and my dad watches it every night in reruns and when a new episode would air. It’s the longest running multi camera sitcom ever. I thought they did a wonderful and heartfelt job with the finale. The elevator works again!! 

Cheers to the weekend!

How I Get My Everyday Waves With MoroccanOil

MoroccanOil Treatment || Beach Wave Mousse || Luminous Hairspray || Hydrating Styling Cream || Perfect Defense Thermal Protection || Dry Texture Spray || Mending Infusion || Protect And Prevent Spray || Restorative Hair Mask || All c/o 

It’s no secret that I love using MoroccanOil products on my hair. I’ve gushed about them before and how the line has transformed my hair care routine. The treatment oil was the first product I tried and was hooked ever since. The oil is literally magic and one I would never go without. My hair is naturally wavy, but still needs some products to help add texture and enhance. After towel drying, I add in a palm full of MoroccanOil Beach Wave Mousse from mid-length to ends. I LOVE this Mousse!! It’s an upgrade from your traditional sea salt spray. It’s a salt-free formula, that adds all day texture and waves without dehydration or stiffness. It also has UV absorbers to protect the hair from sun damage. Next, I add the treatment oil from mid-length to ends. This magical liquid adds shine, silkyness, speeds up drying time, conditions, and detangles. It can also be used as a styling and finishing tool. Finally, I comb both products through evenly and let my hair air dry overnight. In the morning, I’ll add in a small amount of the dry texture spray for a little oomph and finish with the luminous hair spray. There you have it! Sometimes I’ll curl my hair and add in the perfect defense thermal protection on dry hair or the protect and prevent spray on towel dried hair if I know I’ll be styling my hair the next day.

I couldn’t help but thinking of The Great Gatsby while wearing this or heading to a whimsical spring or summer soirée. The skirt of this dress is also lovely for a good twirl! My sweet girl was also picking so many flowers for me during this shoot. I couldn’t help but to take a photo of all them in my bag. She’s such a doll!

Look at some of her model poses too!! Both her outfit and mine fit true to size.

Happy Friday, everyone! For the past three years, Ava and I have always worn matching or similar outfits for Mother’s Day. It’s a tradition that we’re going to keep going for as long as we can! When Ava first saw me in this floral 1940s inspired dress, she said, “mommy, that dress is so beautiful.” She’s really been getting into dressing up and taking photos with me and wanted to dress in her own floral dress for the shoot. She looks so angelic in these photos too. She’s my precious little angel. I was also teaching her how to twirl her skirt during some of these shots. She’s getting the hang of it! It was a gorgeous day outside that we made the most of with many wonderful memories at our favorite spots in the park.

Ava’s dress came from TJ Maxx, which she also wore for Palm Sunday. It’s a great spot to find unique dresses at a great price. I’ve gotten many of hers there over the years. My dress not only boasts a great deal of charm, but also grace with its pink floral cascading throughout the 1940s style embellishments. The bodice has a multitude of pin tucks, centered by a classic winged collar, highlighted by long sleeves (that I rolled up), and a button cuffed for added vintage accent. The wide banded waistline slims and elongates your hourglass while the swing skirt features gentle gathers for a delightful flair. This is one of the most lovely dresses that I own. Everything about it makes me feel at my very best. The sizing for the dress runs small. While the dress does fit, it’s rather tight in the waist. I would suggest going up one size for comfort.

Don't forget to look below for our other Mother’s Day outfits from the past three years! Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mamas out there. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Good morning, friends! What more can I say than I’m absolutely head over heels in love with this dress. The light pink color along with the charming novelty print made up of birdcages, pinned butterflies, and postage stamps adds to the pin-up perfection. The shirt dress with a darted bodice, belt, notched collar, and darling cap sleeves all lend to the flare of the 1950s. Did I mention it has pockets too?! Simply swooning. The fit is true to size. How cute are these pearl clips!! Pearl clips are a huge trend right now, really any hair accessory, and with good reason. They have a vintage sophistication, add some charm, and the practicality of keeping your hair out of your face. I’m all about that. The set I have comes with ten pieces (two of each style) for under $13. They’re perfect for various hair styles (pinning hair back on one side, pinning back both sides, using a clip to pin a chignon…the list goes on), matching with you mini me, or using double clips on one side. Ava was so excited to wear one of the clips so we would match! I love these photos with her and I as well. She really is the sweetest! She always kisses me whenever we take photos together and I was able to capture some of those moments above.

Happy Tuesday, friends!  What a gorgeous day yesterday was! I cannot wait to share some of the photos Ava and I took. After she got out of school, we spent the entire day outside basking in the sunshine at one of our favorite parks. We took a walk, played in the sand, made some new friends, and had a picnic. 

One of my favorite parts about spring are the blossom trees. Soaking in their beauty for as long as I can brings me so much joy. This top from Chicwish has a gorgeous floral pattern, v-neck design with ruffle and crochet trimmings, and elastic cuffs. It is a bit sheer, but I found wearing a nude bra underneath was fine. No need to wear an extra tank top. This whole outfit gives me dreamy vibes from the 1940s, which are absolutely swoon worthy!

Disney always has the best outfits for family matching fun. These tops would also be adorable with some matching skirts. We went to one of our favorite flower parks to take these photos before meeting with some of my friends to take our kids to dinner and the movies. We all saw Ugly Dolls, which the kids loved! There’s some pretty cute songs and a great theme of everyone is beautiful inside and out.

Welcome to my favorite month of the year! So many wonderful things happen in May that make my heart fill with joy. Not only does the weather start to finally turn around (April showers bring May flowers!), but we have Mother’s Day, my birthday, May the 4th be with you for the Star Wars fans, Memorial Day, and our annual vacation to the Cape. It’s a month that I’ve looked forward to for as long as I can remember and still do to this day. I long to be spend time outdoors and May is the month where that finally starts to happen on a consistent basis. So here’s to the month of May, my favorite month of the year!

It’s a priority of mine to always look put together whether I’m dressed in jeans, a skirt, or a dress. On my more laid back days you’ll find me in some variation of this casual elegant outfit. This look is favorite of mine for still being dressed up, yet in a relaxed fashion. The pleated floral skirt is a dream to wear! I’m a big fan of pleats with them being especially fun for a good twirl. Ava and I were walking around looking at all of the cherry blossoms in town during this shoot. She is the absolute sweetest too. I cannot say enough how lucky I am to have her. She loves to give me kisses when we get photos together, which melts my heart. She also kept picking flowers for me and gets so excited to give them to me, which of course earns her another kiss!

Happy Tuesday, friends! What a busy past couple of days Ava and I have had. To top it all off, tonight the Avengers are going to be at our local McDonalds! Ava’s pretty excited to meet them.   

When we’re super busy, I love to just throw on a dress and go. It’s a simple way to look chic andput together when time is of the essence. Another go-to solution are accessories in natural fabrics like straw, wicker, or rattan. Not only do they give some texture to an outfit, they go with everything, and feel effortless. You’ll be hard pressed to find me without them during the spring and summer months. I’ve been living in these woven mules, which are so comfortable to wear. They fit true to size and go with everything I put on. They’re going to be my go-to shoe for summer. This little floral dress has slightly puffed sleeves and a peplum hem. It’s perfect for a night out or when matched with natural fabrics like I did, it has a dressed down feeling for the day.

Happy weekend, friends! Ava and I went to go see Avengers End Game yesterday and man, what an amazing way to end the series! Both of us loved the movie that clocks in at just over three hours. I laughed, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat, and I wholeheartedly enjoyed the entire journey I’ve been on with these characters over the past eleven years. What a journey it’s been too. The entire theater clapped at the end, which I always love. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but definitely go see it, especially all of the fans.

 This yellow tea dress was a dream to shoot under the weeping cherry blossom tree. With a bowtie at the neck, ruffles, and a floral print, this dress fit right in with romantic charm the trees have. Ava particularly enjoyed playing under them! We both wanted to wear yellow florals too. This is the cutest little number to throw on for a day out or even for a date night.

Not only does the top have bows, but my sandals and hat also have bows too! While putting this look together, I envisioned a spring time walk in the park or a picnic under a blossoming tree.

Spring has finally sprung in Pennsylvania! The past two weeks have provided some magical days and evenings with the flowering trees blooming, the weather turning a tad warmer, and the fresh scent of spring in the air. I find the pretty blossoms to be the absolute best backgrounds and wish they would last longer than they usually do. Every time we see a blossom tree, Ava points it out with such excitement. She was such a darling during this photo shoot too. She kept bringing flowers over to me with the biggest smile on her face. She melts my heart! This wrap skirt was the perfect compliment to our afternoon out in the sun. With the temperatures rising, I wanted a look that reminded me of sunshine and blue skies. Of course, blue and yellow also have a nautical vibe to them, which I adore and its one of my favorite color combos! The skirt also has the most adorable ruffles along the hemline and fits true to size. Along with a day out in the spring, I can also imagine wearing this on a beach vacation!

Hello friends! Leopard has been one of my long time favorite prints as far back as I can remember. Even Ava is quite a fan of the print and likes to point it out every time we see it. This lightweight blouse combines two details I adore. A bow tie at the neck and of course the leopard print. The top feels so comfortable with a looser fit. It looks best when tucked into either a pair of jeans or a skirt. I particularly enjoy pairing leopard with colors of the season. It really does act as a neutral!

Happy Easter Monday! Today I’m highlighting some of my favorite beauty products I’ve been using over the past couple of months. Almost all of these products are ones I tried on my own, only four of them being sent to me to try out, but I ended up loving them so much and kept them as a part of my daily routine. Many of these started out as products I wanted to try based on what they promised to do and how yummy or beautiful they smelled. What can I say, how something smells is a big part of it! I can tell you every single one of these products delivered on their promises and make either my morning, nighttime, or relaxing bath time much more enjoyable.

Speaking of the bath, I’m obsessed with all of Dr. Teals products for the bath. The pink Himalayan being my favorite scent. I keep multiples of these on hand at all times. Before my bath or shower, I’ll use Sailors Face Oil to take off my makeup and cleanse my skin. It’s so relaxing to use and works very well leaving my skin clean without the tightness soap can give. You can also add a few drops of the oil to your favorite moisturizer. I also love their deep blue face moisturizer, which smells like fruity pebbles! It’s lightweight and doesn’t leave any greasy residue behind. Of course, the nautical theme is what caught my eye to begin with. Their products use ingredients found in the ocean, which I love. I also use the Pixi face mask during my bath once or twice a week. These masks are AMAZING. My skin literally glows after using these. I’m beyond impressed. Another product that has me under its spell is Dr. Botanicals Moroccan Rose Oil. This smells like rose candy. I use four drops for my face and neck both morning and night. It’s been an game changer giving my skin the right amount of moisturize and actually gives me this beautiful glow. I’ve already ordered my second bottle!

Soap And Glory and Love Beauty And Planet both have amazing body products for in the bath/shower and after you get out. I love using the Murmuru Butter And Rose Body Lotion at night. This smells sooo yummy and gives me skin a little shimmer. It’s so beautiful. In the morning I love using Paradise Glossed Body Oil, which has a yummy fruity smell reminding me of paradise. It goes on light and leaves my skin glowing. The retro print also gives me the biggest thrill! 

As far as hair goes, there’s a few new favorites here that I’ve incorporated into my routine and also Ava’s. She loves the Cake products because they smell like vanilla icing and strawberry lemonade. She’s a scent girl too! I found both the hairspray and wave maker at Rite Aid. The hairspray and hair oil from Kristin Ess work exceptionally well. The hairspray locks my hair into place and also gives it this subtle shine. Now, this does not have a delicious smell or anything, it just WORKS. The hair serum I like because you can use it anywhere on both wet and dry hair. It does not make my hair look oily rather giving it moisture on the ends and making them look healthy. The shampoo and conditioner from Love Beauty And Plant leave my hair feeling so lightweight and bouncy. There’s not other way to describe it, my hair literally feels so lightweight. They both smell amazing too. I still use my MoroccanOil hair products as well, usually rotating between these. The MoroccanOil Oil Treatment cannot be beat. I’ve been using it for quite a while now and can not find anything that comes close to it.

I look forward to using these products every single day. Let me know if you try any of them and what you think!

Good morning and happy Good Friday, dear friends! This dress from Chicwish is truly the life of the party! It’s a gorgeously made gown, the silky material is a nice heavy fabric, with a halter neck and stunning bow at the waist or back deciding on how you tie it. Talk about elegantly chic!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter holiday! Ava’s beyond excited for the bunny to arrive and it means the world to me to see that light and excitement on her face. We’ll be doing an egg hunt, basket hunt, church, and a lunch/dinner to celebrate. What an amazing time of the year. He Is Risen!!!!

Retro Stage Blue Polka Dot Dress c/o || White Disc Hat || Sunglasses || Similar Cirlce Bag || Similar Sandals || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Circle Hexagon Ring c/o ||  

Good morning, everyone! When I first saw this blue polka dot dress, I thought of Lucille Ball in I Love Lucy. From there on out, I was completely sold! Reminiscent of the 1950s, this dress has cute cap sleeves and a self tie bow at the waist. It hits just above my knee and has a slight stretch to it making the fit very comfortable. To complete the retro style, I opted for white accessories, which also remind me of the gorgeous summertime. Whether a picnic in the park or an ice cream date, this look is sure to be sweet. I’m wearing a size small for reference.

Pink Tweed Dress c/o || Blush Bow Flats || Sunglasses || Similar Circle Bag || Blush Hair Clip || Jackie Kennedy Pearl Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Circle Hexagon Ring c/o ||  

Good morning, friends! Every time I see a tweed dress, I instantly think of Jackie Kennedy. She wore quite a bit of tweed throughout her life, typically a jacket and skirt set, and always looked beyond stylish in them. There’s no denying her grace, beauty, and charm, which always have and still continue to inspire me to this day. This tweed dress from a Chicwish conjures up retro vibes and soft romantic notions with it’s blush hue, mid-length sleeves, and a sheer self-tie bowknot. Even the sleeves have sheer ruffles along with cuffs. A charming frock that will add elegance to your spring wardrobe!
