Spring Dresses

I feel like spring is all about light colors, floral prints, and soft feminine pieces. Spring time to mean always means a time for fun get togethers like baby showers and bridal showers. This time of year is such a fun time for us girls because we get to have lots of get togethers and do a little “dressing up”.

I thought it’d be fun to share some dresses and skirts I am loving for spring right now! Some of my favorite places to shop for dresses & skirts are Anthropologie, ASOS, Boden, ModCloth, and, of course, Nordstrom.  Each of these stores offer unique dresses that are not something everyone will have on. I love this because this way you lessen your chances of you and one of your girlfriend’s showing up in the same dress!

Happy Monday!

Favorite Buys: March

I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I bought in the month of March that I am absolutely loving! Here in Central California we have been experiencing some super warm days like today (90 degrees) and a few windy days along with a few (more like non-existent) rainy days.

So, with it looking like we are quickly approaching the days when warm weather is here to stay I set out to find myself a good pair of cropped jeans.

Some other items may have found there way to my doorstep ;)

Below I’m sharing some of my “favorite buys” from the month of March!

Favorite Buys: March

1969 girlfriend jeans in imperial indigo

I’ve never owned a pair of cropped jeans that were completely fitted. I was surprised by how much I really like these jeans! They’re soft, have some stretch, and are the perfect in between color of light wash & dark wash jeans.

Favorite Buys: March

Chambray Anorak in light denim

Perfect for those cool spring mornings and/or chilly nights!

Favorite Buys: March

Verona Blouse in black motif

Anything with a floral or brush stroke print is a must have for me!

Favorite Buys: March

1969 resolution slim straight skimmer jeans in barn red

Like I said above, I’ve never had a pair of fitted & cropped jeans, nor, have I ever had a pair of colored jeans! I thought these would be a good pair to try :)

Favorite Buys: March

1969 Authentic Boyfriend Jeans in tinted blackwash

Something you can always find in my closet is a few pairs of boyfriend jeans. I have yet to have a black pair, but now I do!

Favorite Buys: March

Nofrills Wedge Sandals

I’ve recently been expanding my heel selection, and these wedges were the perfect in between of a heel, yet not super tall. I, of course, had to buy 2 colors!

Favorite Buys: March

Oasis Lace Shift Dress

And to finish things off this month, I bought this blue lace shift dress. I’m contemplating wearing this to a bridal shower I have in June or a wedding I have in July.

Did you buy any clothes this month that you’re loving?

Monday Blues

Monday BluesOne of my favorite colors of the moment is navy. Last Spring Pottery Barn went all out with different rooms decorated with navy. That magazine was one of my favorites, and I’m happy to see navy is still in this coming season. So, I thought a post with my favorite navy/blue items was due. I love seeing hints of navy as an accent color in bedrooms and living rooms. What I love about navy is that you can either do accent pieces of navy (pillows, throw blankets, lamp shades/bases, or rugs) or you can have your larger details be navy (walls, couches, cabinets, or curtains). Obviously, accent pieces of navy are on the safer side, but if you’re a little more daring I love the look of dark navy walls or a couch! Some of my favorite colors to pair with navy are light blue, gold, and gray. Here’s a little inspiration of some of my favorite “navy” rooms and some items I’m loving from Pottery Barn right now.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Him

I’m back with another stocking stuffer post today! This time it’s stocking stuffer ideas for the men in your life. As you all know, my dad and brother are both farmers. So, they have no use for ties or cuffs links or anything like that. However, they do make plenty of use out of things like work gloves and warm socks! I’ve included some of the usual things they are likely to find in their stockings each year, along with a few new additions like this “manly” chapstick (for some reason neither one of them will use chapstick! Hopefully they will be more apt to try this out!) and this wrench bottle opener. And of course, some necessities like floss picks, candy, and body wash find their way in there, too!

Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Her

Stocking Stuffers - LadiesOne detail of Christmas I think sometimes get’s left behind in my household is our stockings. So this year I am determined to put a little extra effort into them and thought you all would enjoy seeing what I put into them. Stay tuned for what I put in the guys’ stockings later this week!

I always think beauty products are a great add in to any woman’s stocking. Lip balms, nail polish, lotions, perfumes, and makeup are some of my favorites. And what’s great about beauty products is you can splurge a little here or get some of the travel or sample sizes of products so you can introduce your loved ones to a few new products! I’ve included some of my favorites like the Sara Happ lip scrub that comes in some of the best flavors, quick drying nail polish drops, and the amazing Oribe dry texturizing spray.

What do you put in the stockings for the ladies in your life? I’m sure I left something out .. tell me in the comments below! signature
