Hello Lovely Readers~
I’m so excited to announce that we are having a little GIRL!! Bring on the pink! It’s so funny since my niece said from day one that I had a baby girl in my tummy, which she affectionately named “Lilypad”. Who would have thought she would actually be right. Except we have decided to forgo Kendall’s name selection for one that will keep her from being laughed at in school. :)
The best news of course is our baby is very healthy and growing right on track. Knowing that we have a little girl on the way is too exciting! W and her husband have two little girls, so the addition of our little girl come fall will officially make it a girls club at our houses! Growing up as twins we were, and still are, best friends. We think these three little girls will have the same fun we did. And you can see that little Avery (last pic) is beyond thrilled to have a cousin on the way!!
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to having you join me on this continued blessing and adventure!

Hello Lovely Readers~
Today’s post is from our fashion vault! W and I stumbled upon another outfit we forgot to post later this winter. Turns out we had perfect timing since today was under 40 degrees (you would have never thought we were starting to sweat in our blazers yesterday with 80+ degrees)! But back to the task at hand, I loved wearing this look! I used an easy 3-step pairing to create it: slim fit boyfriend denim, classic blue stripe button down shirt and a faux fur vest. I’m carrying a favorite Coach bag from my collection, called Rory. I’ve been eyeing the just released bright spring colors - but W has been good to keep me from buying one! ;) What do you readers think? Would you wear your faux-fur vest in this easy, casually chic outfit?
This weekend was packed with lots of fun events: a wedding shower, landscaping our front yard, shopping at the J.Crew Factory 50% off sale…and a half marathon! Needless to say, I’m a little pooped (well from the running/shopping, I can’t claim any of the work on the yard - shocker, I know). The race was a blast and the weather was picture perfect. I must give a special shout out to my college friends that also ran in the race: Carlie, Kara, Bailey and Claribel! I also managed to convince my husband to run it with me. He did awesome, especially considering we didn’t train at all like we needed to and this was his first running event ever. Check us out on Instagram if you want to see a few pics. :)
So today’s outfit pretty much sums up my normal take on style: chic, classic and comfy. You can’t go wrong with nautical stripes paired with gold accessories, in my opinion. I picked up the navy pleated skirt at a 40% off sale at The Limited a few weeks ago. It’s so comfy and already look forward to wearing it again. The outfit is topped off with my new Coach tote (“saffiano north/south city tote”) in this gorgeous tan shade that seems to go with ALL my spring outfits. It’s one of my fave purchases this season for sure. The price point is great too and makes it really affordable (especially with the 25% discount you can get for signing up your email address here).
Hello Lovely Readers~
Lately I’ve been all about mod styles, colorblocking and neon shades. But when I saw this dress at The Limited a few weeks ago, my heart stopped…I HAD to have it!!! Sometimes going back to classic shapes like this gorgeous chevron dress just make for the “oh so perfect” ladylike outfit that you can’t go wrong with. I love how the vibrant colors add a nice punch, along side a flattering fitted waist and pleated skirt that create such a lovely touch. Admittedly, it felt like I should be going to a 1950’s themed dance or attending an afternoon tea when I zipped up this dress. Yes, you too will do a little twirl and squeal if you are lucky enough to find this dress. It was sold out for weeks, but I did just spot a few sizes that came back online, so you are in luck! Since the orange shade provides plenty of talking, the outfit was easily completed with a coordinating bow belt, my trusty nude patent heels and gold Marc Jacobs for Target clutch. Simple chic at its best. I can hardly wait to wear this outfit again!
