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!

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!

Good morning and happy Friday, friends! Spring has officially sprung and that means its cherry blossom season, one of my favorite times of the year! I love seeing the gorgeous trees in all of their pink glory. I can't help but swoon every time I see them. This beautiful lace dress from Chicwish was an absolute dream to wear around the blossoms all day. The scalloped hem adds a modern flair to the classic silhouette. This is the type of dress I could wear all spring and summer long. The midi length suits any occasion and the dress was so comfy to wear! I'm wearing an XS for reference. I swapped out my pink sandals for some fancy blue and white sequin striped sneaks once night time hit. I have to say, I love the sandals and their blush hue, but after four hours my feet just about had it. I walked all around the city, but once that fourth hour hit, I was done for haha. The sneaks on the other hand, they were as comfortable as could be. If you're going on holiday or just want a whimsical or trendy outfit, make sure to stop by Chicwish.

The weather was absolutely amazing for seeing the blossoms. High 70s during the day and low 70s at night. I wish those kinds of temperatures would stick around! I'm sick of winter lingering as long as it can. I forgot to mention I recently saw Beauty and Beast too. Wow!!! It was AMAZING! So beautifully done and magical. All of the actors were perfectly cast. Has anyone else seen it yet? I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

One of the top trends that is still going strong this season is a throwback to the 70's. This light blue off the shoulder top has the cutest bell sleeve detail and is under $15. A huge steal! It is very wrinkle prone though. I threw this in the dryer and then ironed it and still had some left over wrinkles. I love how light and airy feeling it is, perfect for a summer's day! I'm wearing an XS for reference. To go along with the outfit, I grabbed this saddle/tan leather tote to stash all of my essentials in for the day. It's actually reversible (yay!) making this a two for one deal. Also, I'm loving the gold tone hardware on the bag. Always a plus in my book. It's those little details that really make a product stand out.

Don't forget to check my instagram out today for an exclusive giveway I'm hosting with Otterbox for their Crystal Symmetry Series (I'm holding the gold above.) Two lucky winners will be randomly chosen to receive a free crystal case (either gold or mystic crystal.) Good luck everyone!!

Happy Friday, all! Finally, we made it to the weekend! For all of the beautiful mother's out there, happy mother's day to you! Being a mother is one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. Having Ava gave me a whole new perspective on life and she still enlightens me with new thoughts and dreams every day.

This crop top and skirt set is absolutely dreamy. It was the perfect day to wear this set with the warm sunshine and pretty cherry blossoms at their peak. My dad and I took Ava for a walk so we could all experience the blossoms at their finest. As soon as the warm weather hits I also grab all of my straw bags out. I'm really craving summer right now! The black leather and straw combo with gold hardware is chic and a great size as a carry around town bag. I usually shy away from crop tops, but this set feels classy enough with only a slight bit of skin showing. I've mentioned this before, but I totally love how you can mix and match the top and skirt with different items in a set. Makes it a two for one deal!

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

If you live on the east coast then I'm sure you've been experiencing the rain and cooler temps that we've been having. What happened to all of the nice warm weather?!? I'm crossing my fingers for spring to return soon!

My most favorite color combo is blush and blue. The bright royal blue of this dress and clutch really pop beautifully against a neutral color like blush. This dress has a classic cool French girl feeling with the stripes and fitted style. It is a bit on the shorter side so taller girls may find this to be too short for them. Anything with stripes reminds me of either nautical or Parisian styles. Sometimes when I'm traveling light, I'll opt for a smaller bag like this wristlet to carry all of my essentials. I can usually fit my phone, keys, lipstick, mirror, credit cards, and cash without hassle. On this particular day, I took a quick trip with Ava down to Josie's Italian Water Ice for some gelati. I let her taste some of the vanilla gelato and she loved it!
