Happy Friday!

It's been a busy spring but I hope you're doing well! Be back soon! xo

So Ready for Spring!

Between tie dresses and hand-me-downs, I don't shop much for Lela. 
Unless I'm looking for something special, I usually opt for inexpensive dresses and rompers. I got her this purple striped jersey dress for $10 at Old Navy and it also comes in a sweet bird print. I've found the key to making things last longer is not putting them in the dryer. (That goes for women's clothes too!) Just hang it up to dry and you rarely need to iron it. They have so much cute stuff for spring!!
I snagged this one-piece on sale!
I also got this light-weight sweater for myself, that reminded me of this one from Calypso. I've been wearing it with white jeans and plan to throw it on with cut-offs when it warms up.

Use code PREVIEW for 30% off this weekend at Old Navy and if you have a card use code STYLE for 40% EVERYTHING! I also stocked up on new khakis and a chambray shirt for Fred. Happy Weekend!


Lessons in Layering

{Jamie King's advice to new moms}
I love chilly mornings and sunny afternoons- a good excuse for layers like these. The key is button downs, tees, and blouses that don't add bulk! I like Wilt tees from Last Call (for half the price!), Zara for jackets and blazers, and thin sweaters from Madewell. I also like to mix in a bold print, like this top from Topshop or this jacket from Free People. And right now, J.Crew shirts, sweaters, and tees are 25% off, use code CLOSETLOVE. 


Pinks & Greens

Pairs well with Chartreuse, Red, Turquoise, Orange, Navy, Chambray, and White. Go for it!

Pom Poms & Tassels!

I absolutely love this framed tea towel my sister-in-law got us for Christmas!! She had it matted and framed, and it's now hanging in the kitchen. Such a fun and unexpected gift to give or receive!!


Deck the Halls!

I can't believe it's already the week before Christmas!! Lela turns ONE in just a few days, and we also celebrated her baptism recently. She wore the dress I designed and my mom sewed for Pearl, which is made from both of our wedding dresses. It was such a special day. 
I wish I had better pictures of the three of them, but it just wasn't happening! Hope you enjoy the holidays with your loved ones!! 

I'm hoping to try out these DIY Gold Leaf Planters...
Or these Gold Leaf Vases...
And if you need some fashion inspiration for the festivities...
 I wore these for an event last month and plan to re-wear them. 30% off at Calypso right now!


Party Central

I've written about Knot & Bow before, but hadn't used any of their party supplies until recently. For Pearl's invitations we used my Seahorse Stationary and sprinkled the Party Confetti Bombs inside the envelopes. There was plenty leftover for the party table and thank you notes too! I'm also loving the beeswax candles and this giant confetti balloon for an outdoor party. Cheers!
