Friday's Fancies: April Showers

Vera Bradley Umbrella in Midnight Blues $34 // Michael Kors Runway $225 J Brand Aiden cropped distressed boyfriend-fit jeans $209 // Splendid cotton and modal-blend jersey top $50 // Longchamp Le Pliage Medium Should Tote $125 // Hunter Romilly in Cornflower $75

I say it over and over... I'm not a fan of this time of year for clothing. April showers ruin nice shoes. Plan it right and tote around another pair to change into once you've reached your destination.

Saks is having a Friends and Family sale - 25% off with code FRNFAM2 through Sunday. Great time to get a Longchamp... just saying!

If you haven't noticed by now... I love basic tees.

Mossimo Supply Co. Dolman Tee $10

Thank you, Target. I bought this in a few colors and have been living in them.

I will be in Massachusetts this weekend for a wedding in Plymouth followed by Sunday Funday in Boston. Thankfully there are no showers in the forecast!

What's Cooking

Spice List (via Instagram - Follow me msslindsay)

I don't mind searching through my cabinet to find a spice, granted I don't have many. My problem is knowing what's actually on the shelves. Since I have been attempting to cook lately, I realize all of the ingredients I don't have on hand when looking through recipes. This list inside my cabinet door makes it a little easier when preparing. I saved the file on my computer and will update as needed.

So, what's cooking?

Maybe it's considered "cheating" but I buy the shrimp prepared at Costco to save time. (Not to mention I will pay a little extra to have them deveined. Gross!)

I'm not sure how "skinny" this is if you eat more than one serving.... the same thought that goes through my mind when I drink a bottle of Skinny Girl Margarita myself. Whatever, it's delicious!

See a theme going on here? Casserole. Cheese. Check! Recipes that meet this criteria are more than welcome in the comments section below...


Tipsy Skipper "Tipsy Trunks" in Navy, AquaHydrangea Blue $80

I need this clutch. Monogrammed. Now. (Please?!)

Sending love to Boston. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those affected by the horrific events of last week.

Lilly Pulitzer

Most of the stores and restaurants on Martha's Vineyard were closed over the weekend during my quick visit. One of my favorite shops, in the pink - A Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store, had their door wide open as they were unpacking and gearing up for the upcoming season. I was admiring the neon pink of the latest line and I felt like it was suddenly summer. As I was browsing the manager told me that she just received the saddening news that Lilly Pulitzer had passed away that morning at 81. :(

Friday's Fancies: Project Polka Dot

Happy Friday! This week's Friday's Fancies theme is polka dots.... I had a few black and white polka dot blouses that were part of my winter and freezing spring "go-to" wardrobe. I would love to have this scarf in my closet as the weather warms up. Anyone else in New England dying for sandal season?

I'll be waking up at the crack of dawn on Saturday morning to drive up to Massachusetts... Martha's Vineyard here I come. I'm going to check out my wedding venue space again and meet with my florist to nail down the details. I love visiting during the off season.

Enjoy the weekend!
