Stripes X Embroidery





I seriously cannot believe we are already half-way through April and that Easter is THIS Sunday. How crazy that we are almost half-way through the year! Easter, or as I would like to call it...Resurrection Sunday is always such a nostalgic, and traditional time of year for me. It reminds me of all the countless Easter's as a little girl when I would look forward to picking out the perfect dress, and shoes and deciding on the perfect hairstyle to go with my whole look. I was THAT girl. I guess that's what happens when you are raised in the South, and the Bible Belt at that. It's interesting to look back over the years and observe how much the holiday and its meaning has changed for me personally. 
As I've grown into an adult, I have adopted my own spiritual life and love for the Lord, so this day isn't so much about finding the perfect outfit, but more of acknowledging God's perfect and relentless love towards me and you. That doesn't mean that I don't get a little excited about buying a new outfit to wear for the day. The holiday has come to be a time of reflection, and all day worshipping my Lord and Savior who loved me, and you so much that he laid down His own life. I also enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, eating and laughing and enjoying one anothers company-just thankful!
The cold shoulder trend is one that I have expressed my love for before, and I can't stop won't stop! I love this striped and embroidered dress from the Who What Wear Collection at Target. It's perfect for church, brunch or afternoon Sunday Funday activities with the fam. What are your plans for the holiday weekend?

I'm coming at you this hump day currently snuggled up in bed fighting what seems to be a mixture of a cold/allergies and the up and down temps certainly aren't helping! But, the silver lining of it all is I've spent the whole day watching Bravo and catching up on sleep. Sometimes, all your body needs is a little dose of R&R.

 I'm dreaming of warmer days and starting to make my list of Spring must haves. Lots and lots of florals are definitely at the top of my list. Florals scream Spring, and there is just something about this floral bomber and polka dot ascot combo that gives me a French/European vibe- which fun fact about me, my name is actually French and I was also born in Germany as my dad served in the military. I haven't been back since being born overseas and obviously don't remember a whole lot but this outfit would be perfect for having a fancy latte at a little French bakery. 

The bomber jacket was a huge trend during the Fall, and continues to remain a statement piece for Spring. It's the perfect, lightweight layer to have in your closet for cold mornings, and warmer evenings. 

If you are looking for the way to make a statement this Spring its all about florals and embroidery. It's so boho chic! I can't wait to share with you guys the cutest, floral and embroidered mules I just scored from Belk. What trends are you most excited for, for Spring?

Happy Friday, friends! We made it through yet another week. And I'm so grateful! I'm looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation. Thank the Lord for the invention of weekends. For renewing your mind, body and soul and just being. I don't think I really began to treasure and understand the importance of weekends until recently.

 I mentioned in a previous post earlier this year, that I was working every Saturday for a local bridal boutique on top of my full-time job in corporate retail to pay off some debt quicker. While I enjoyed helping beautiful brides to be find their perfect gown, the rest my body needed was essential for me to give my all to my full time job and to this little corner of the internet. I'm thankful to the Lord for lessons learned and for provision in my efforts to financially set myself straight. I've been living for the 2 days of the week that I get to myself. When I get to decide if I want to wake up early for cycling, or just sleep in or if I want to spend the night drinking wine and laughing with friends. So, cheers to the weekend!

I have been sticking to light layering these days and I especially love a good striped top. I picked up both this quarter length striped Who What Wear top and velvet spaghetti strap  top the other week at Target on clearance. I couldn't say no to the simplicity of the striped top, an easy workwear piece and casual too. I also thought that this velvet piece would be a great addition to my wardrobe for this year's holiday season as I don't see the velvet trend going away any time soon. I am loving how all of the trends are bringing me back to the 90s and my middle school days- the nostalgia *hashtag all the heart eyes* 

What are some of your favorite weekend leisure activities?

Limited Edition Saddle Bag 23 in Burnish Glovetanned Leather in the Bordeaux color: Coach







You guys we almost made it through the work week after vacation! Only one more day but who's counting? It's been such a struggle to get back in the saddle- see what I did there :) 

Coming off the high of the holidays made it that much more easy to join in on the celebration of Coach's 75th Anniversary! In honor of such a huge milestone, Coach is bringing back the iconic saddle bag. I have been a fan of this trend ever since it started to emerge on the runways a couple of seasons ago. The size and shape of these bags are both efficient, fashionable and the perfect accessory to top off any casual look. I am in love with all things merlot colored especially during the winter and fall, so this creamy Bordeaux color is a perfect addition to my wardrobe. 

I stuck with a good ole Canadian Tuxedo to keep my look simple and to really show off the bag. Distressed denim on the bottom is a great way to edge up this type of look. I paired my denim on denim with this gorgeous suede motto from Marshalls and neck scarf from the Target Who What Wear Collection. I kept my shoes neutral with these chunky, camel colored Steve Madden pumps.

Happy 75th Anni, Coach! Cheer's to many more years of timeless fashion.
