The Classic Shift...

SHOP THESE LOOKS...

I love a good shift dress! I can always count on them to make me feel classy and a little more "put together" than I am, amen?! ;) For Father's Day, I went with the Kate Spade pastel pink dress that you see in the photos below. I snagged it at TJ Maxx for under $40! Steal, right?! I've linked a few that look similar - since I couldn't find the exact one that I'm wearing. 

I've also shared some other favorite shift dresses, which you can shop above + most of them are under $75! Have a happy Monday, everyone!

It's the day of the Boston Marathon & the city is totally bustling with more life and energy then ever! Lo, my sister and I ventured around our old neighborhood, Bay Village, taking in its beauty. I love the beautiful brick row houses, intricate designs, and wildly painted doors! I found a few favorites and of course, we snapped away! The day was perfect, with lots of sunshine. Here's wishing everyone participating in the marathon a safe and happy time ... enjoy this beautiful city!

Easter With The Markwood's!

Yesterday was a great day ... busy & hectic ... but GREAT! We loved celebrating London's first Easter right here at our little Massachusetts apartment. It was nice not to have to travel anywhere, but to wake up in our own beds and lounge. We did a little food prep the night before, so we could enjoy Sunday for the most part. We got London all dolled up for Easter service and had a little pre-church photo shoot (which was totally my husband's idea) Haha! We hosted Chris's mom and stepdad for dinner which included: Ham w/a brown sugar glaze, green bean casserole, mac n' cheese, mashed potatoes, peas, homemade rolls, and deviled eggs! For dessert I made carrot cake cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting ... I must say - these were a big hit! London sat at the table with us, tried ham for the first time, and absolutely loved it! By "loved it" I mean, she wouldn't eat anything else but ham...probably should have given her veggies beforehand, but ehh - it was a holiday so I let it slide :)
