Up on the Roof Top

Today's #tbt is a reminder of the days when I used to do outfit posts (remember that?!) On my roof no less! Now that the weather has gotten nicer I promise to start doing it again. My excuse is that my roof for the past 4 months has been covered in snow. So we'll just leave it at that! And this outfit…it just reminds me of spring. This light and airy loose crocheted sweater (in a sweet petal pink color) just welcomes the new warm weather. Love!

Crochet sweater: Elle from Kohl's (cute option) // Jeans: Express (same) // Bubble necklace: ILY Couture (similar) // Nude heels: Nine West (similar) // Sunglasses: Loft (nice option)
So anyone have any fun plans for the weekend??

Spring Things

We're finally getting some warmer weather….spring has officially sprung! So what does that mean? It's time for some Spring swap outs. Yup, spring swaps are that time of year where I trade in all my fall/winteresque things for pretty spring alternatives. For example, it's the time of year I trade in my dark nail polish colors for bright springy pastel colors. Even if th temperatures dip on the occasional day (which it has) I'll still bundle up in, but in spring colors. I've still been wearing sweater but have rocked my mint and other pretty pastel colors.  Other fun spring swaps you can make include: nail polish colors, spring purse, springy accessories, spring sandals, and spring fragrance. Don't forget about the perfume ladies! In the winter I've been rocking heavier scents (Coco Noir to be exact) but now it's time to lighten up. What's on my list, Vince Camuto's Fiori -- it's so light and fresh and smells like peonies…..love!

Now this is my kind of spring cleaning! Out with the cold old and into the new and fresh pieces! After this winter I don't think I've ever been so happy to see spring in my life. Especially considering that spring is also known as my miserable allergy season. Boo. 

So have you started swapping out your winter for spring things?
What are some of your favorite spring pieces you can't wait to wear/use?

A Very Special Day :)

Well actually yesterday was a very special day, D's birthday to be exact! Even though I spent the entire day/weekend with you -- and we still have an entire birthday weekend planned for you next weekend, I just wanted to take the time to wish you a very, very, happy birthday on this little space on the internet I call my own. I'm very lucky to have you in my life and there is no one else I'd rather share my days with! I love you and nope, it doesn't suck! (inside joke).
Just how could you not love this face?
Well that, and the color coordinated track suit and sneakers too!

Happy Birthday D!!

Friday, I'm in Love.

Sorry everyone for the radio silence over here! I've been trying something new lately. Living in the now. I love, love, triple love my blog but I've been wanting to take my life off screen and into the real world. I've been using my time getting back into the gym, cooking a nice dinner, traveling on the weekends, snuggling with my favorites, getting thai take out and having movie nights on a random Tuesday, playing in my cornhole league on Wednesdays, and last night I went for a lovely walk all by myself just window shopping and taking in the sights. It's been glorious!
 I saw this on Pinterest this morning and it spoke to me. When the daily grind of the work week feels like it can get us down, we need to remind ourselves that we don't have to wait  until __________ (fill in the blank for yourself) to be happy. I'm just as guilty of waiting for the weekend, the summer, the perfect job, relationship etc. when in reality your happiness can be found on a Thursday night -- if you make the effort to make it special. So get that take out, rent that movie, pop a bottle of bubbly and do whatever your little heart desires. Leave the dishes in the sink. It doesn't have to wait for the weekend. Make the most of the moment you're in now and make it special :)

I hope to get to posting a little more frequently soon, but I have to admit, I'm kinda loving my online disconnect right now! Don't worry, I'm not giving up blogging anytime soon -- I think I might just have a case of spring fever.

So in the mean time smile and make today special.
Because it's Friday, and I'm in love.
