Friday Fancies


Baublebar Crispin Drops (everything in on sale... save up to 30%)
I'm not really a trendy jewelry person... but i think I need to bite the bullet and just order a pair of these drops.

I first saw  this dress on stylinbyaylin via Instagram.... had to have it immediately. I love the style but decided that I am going to exchange for the pink version since I already have a blue off the shoulder number.

Sam & Libby Sandals (Buy 1 get 1 50% off women's dresses and shoes)
Several of my favorite fashionistas have been wearing those sandals from Target... and for $33 I'm in. I didn't see them in my store (Stamford) so ordered online.

Happy by Pink Chicken Dress (20% off with code DRESS20)
Pink Chicken is an adorable (and pricey) brand that has a line for Target. Last year I had a cute elephant number for Lexi but she never got the chance to wear it in season. Cherries and gingham... yes.

Anthropologie Gingham Ribbon Sleeve Sweater (20% off  with code WOWMOM)
Gingham bows. No further explanation needed. In my closet and I can't wait to wear it!

Love these!

Happy Friday, friends!

Stripe Season

Shirt: Old Navy. Lexi's Dress: Carter's. Sunglasses: Janie & Jack. Bow: Etsy. Carrier: Baby Bjorn

Weekends are for twinning. It doesn't take a lot of effort to coordinate since I buy Lexi things I wish I had in my own closet. I love stripes all year long but they are out in full force now.

We were up early on Saturday morning, as we are every day thanks to our cute little alarm clock, and went to Tod's Point for a walk. Lexi didn't stay in the carrier for long...


I couldn't get her to look up at the camera... so much to explore.


How cute are her little white Chucks!


I had to get this hat from Carter's for a couple reasons.... stripes and the Derby coming up.


She wanted nothing to do with it until I started wearing it around. She then proudly claimed it.


I did some shopping later that day at the Westchester. I found this striped dress on the sale rack at J. Crew. I had seen it in the store but would have never tried it on until I saw the sale price ($98 down to $39). I wore it to a baby shower on Sunday with wedges (and laced up tighter, haha) and then switched to sandals for the rest of the day. It runs true to size and the length still worked for me even though I'm 5'2" (it hits the model mid calf but comes to my ankle). I will wear it on the Cape for Memorial Day not only because of the colors but it's perfect for those chilly nights

Hope you had a great weekend!

Pink and Green Cake Smash

 Photographs by Karen Morneau Photography

Cake, anyone? When I first saw these 1st birthday cake smash sessions I knew we had to do it! Karen made it so easy... we just had to show up to her studio and the cake and balloons were waiting for us. I love that the cake is personalized... it saved me the rush of getting something monogrammed. We based the color scheme around her pink and green romper from Janie and Jack. I can't get enough of these photos, they always make me smile.

Eyes on Eyelet

Eyelet Blouse: Madewell (also available at Nordstrom). Jeans: Madewell (also available at Nordstrom). Jacket: Forever 21 (old, similar). Bracelets: David Yurman 1,2.
Moccasins: Freshly Picked. Bow: Etsy.

White eyelet... right there with plaid, gingham and stripes on my hard to resist list. My top is on sale now and has been one of my favorites this spring. It has 3/4 sleeves and is a basic style so I know I'll wear it next year. I have also been wearing it with this oversized cardigan.

I buy most of Lexi's clothes from Gap online. There is always, always a sale going on. I constantly look at the new arrivals because the best things go fast, like this floral sweatshirt and pants. So cute!

Anyway... my weekend was pretty relaxing. We had friends over on Friday night for tacos and margaritas (I had been craving one all week) and I went to a baby shower on Sunday. I didn't get as far as I would have liked to with my photo organization project I mentioned on Friday... it's just never ending. Finally, I got a little shopping in. I bought a few new things to try from Sephora, including this hairspray that I already love. We also accompanied Ted to Bass Pro Shop. I swear I can find something to buy at most stores and this is one I have a very hard time...  but I had to laugh on the way out when I spotted these knock off Jack Rogers for $20.



Here are a few other tops and dresses that caught my eye.

Thanks for stopping by... I've been staying up pretty late to blog again (the only chance I have) and appreciate that you all are still coming back to read it!

TGIF



Photographs by Karen Morneau Photography

Happy Friday! These are a few of Lexi's photos from her one year shoot a few weeks ago. Her sweet dress is from the Beaufort Bonnet Company. I'll be sharing her pink and green themed cake smash next week.

This weekend I'll be attempting to organize my photos... digital spring cleaning. I left off  in November so have several months to catch up on. I upload my camera and iPhone photos into folders on an external hard drive by month. It's been my goal to keep up with it at least every 6 months, print copies and make albums. This round will be just in time for Mother's Day... albums always make a great gift. I go back and forth with sites that I should backup my photos on. I currently use Shutterfly for albums, but open to other options. Would love some feedback!

Have a great weekend!
