Ruffles...

Happy Friday!

I'm so excited for Easter weekend with my little family! We are taking Lolo to see the Easter bunny tomorrow and I just can't wait. We have her basket all filled with some of her favorite goodies and plans to go to church on Sunday then host a delicious (hopefully) dinner with family at our apartment :) What is everyone doing this week? I would love to hear all of your Easter plans!

How sweet and feminine are these ruffle pieces? I love that this trend has totally taken over spring! I wanted to share some adorable dresses and tops with just the perfect amount of "ruffle!" I just bought this casual tee with a little ruffle detail that dresses it up! (It's only $15 too!) Happy shopping and thank you for stopping by!

Easter Style...

 

I can't believe Easter is just around the corner! First of all, I love everything that this holiday represents ... and it's just a little added bonus that we get to celebrate by dressing up in sweet pastel colors or decorating our homes with spring blooms! I've started shopping for Easter and of course, I mainly just want to match Lo with whatever I decide to wear. My mom bought her the sweetest little dress with a few different colors in it, so I'm looking for something solid! I've got my eye on this one ... because I love the Easter egg blue color, and this one for the lace detail! Bell sleeves are so elegant, especially on this dress - plus the blush color is perfect for Spring. 

You can shop a few more dresses, tops, and skirts that I'm loving below...

Spring Style Inspo...

Happy Monday!

That little taste of Spring that we had last month was short-lived. However, it still got me really excited for warmer weather and sunshine, hence why I wanted to get a head start on rounding up all the cute dresses! Of course, I love pastels and neutrals for the season and it seems like florals are ALWAYS on trend. I really like the shoulder tie detail on this maxi, not to mention the ombre feature and the fact that it's under $70! This taupe dress has a peekaboo cutout in the front that's adorable as well (also under $70!) The dresses in the second graphic are all UNDER $50 and there are such cute ones. This dee elle dress is under $30 and SO CUTE! Another favorite I wanted to highlight is this green polkadot swing dress for less than $40. It's so cute and would look adorable paired with a cropped denim jacket or cream cardi

You can shop any dress by clicking on the pink icon located next to each item! The top graphic is all dresses under $100, and the bottom graphic, they're under $50! Happy shopping + thank you for stopping by :)

Beach Getaway Essentials...

Maybe it's the three snowstorms we had last week that's making me crave the warm weather ... or the fact that next week we leave for Charleston ...  but I just can't WAIT for sunshine! It's so close I can almost taste it! If you're like me and are looking forward to higher temps, here is a round up of some beach weather essentials for you! A few of my favorite getaway essentials include this "Summer Daze" straw tote, this airy cover-up (for under $50!), and these platform wedges! You can shop my other favorites by clicking the numbered links below the graphic! I'll be telling you all where we are traveling at the end of March soon on my Instagram, so stay tuned and follow along here

Summer Lovin...

The weather yesterday was totally giving me summer vibes, and I'm trying to soak it up as much as possible. We enjoyed some family time outside and basked in as much sun as we could. Oh, and did I mention shopping? Yes, I did a little of that too. I have dress envy for all the cute summer looks out right now. I'm realllllly good at window shopping (my husband begs to differ)...so I have chosen some of my favorite dresses currently. They're not to tough on the budget either - which is always a plus! Shop the looks above & let me know your favorite brands for all things summer as well!

I'm totally ready to bring out my sandals and store away the boots ... just waiting on this weather to cooperate! One day its in the 60's, the next day it's snowing, seriously, mother nature MAKE UP YOUR MIND!
