I’m sure you are well aware of the ever so popular pineapple trend… it’s everywhere! I love this Fashion Junkee pineapple print tank! It’s so light and soft! I love how it’s a bit over sized so it has a loose fit to it. I am wearing a size small, it showed a little bit of my bra around the arm holes so it would be really cute with a lace bra or bandeau! They have so many colors I had a tough time deciding which one to get! I want to go back on their website and order it in this color too! Everyone needs one for summer!  Fashion Junkee is giving all of my readers 10 percent off with the code XOCHERIN at checkout.  So generous!

We had my friend Callie’s baby shower on Sunday and everything turned out great! We did a parfait bar, fruit salsa, and german chocolate cake for dessert! This weekend we are throwing my sister-in-law her bridal shower with a coffee theme (heart eyes)!

I finished reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë last week and absolutely loved everything about it! I also just finished When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi.  I was really let down! The overall message was touching and thought provoking, but I feel like he failed to communicate the huge impact of his experience!  Has anyone read it?  I would love your opinions!

As you may have noticed I have been a little obsessed with anything off shoulder, so I was thrilled when I saw this black off shoulder top from my favorite boutique, Sweetest Stitch! My growing collection desperately (dramatic much?) needed a black one. I LOVE the peplum shape it has, I haven’t come across any off shoulder tops that have that design. The lace trim around the top adds that little extra detail to make the top even more unique. Sweetest Stitch has some really cute new arrivals! I love this dress and these shoes are so on trend right now!

We went to my brothers CrossFit competition on Saturday. We had a ton of people from our gym competing so it was awesome to always have someone to watch and cheer for! My brother was cramping up so bad afterwards that he couldn’t even eat, I felt really bad for him but also couldn’t stop laughing! This Sunday my friend Cieara and I are throwing our friend a baby shower! We are doing a parfait bar and I think it will turn out really cute!

It rained the last two days so my allergies weren’t horrible, I’ve been so miserable! Thankfully I have an appointment for my allergy shot at the end of the month!

Be sure to follow Sweetest Stitch on Instagram as they are always sharing their cute looks and new arrivals.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

H&M Jersey Jacket

Years and years ago while watching Gilmore Girls, Lorelei had on a white coat with black trim and my first thought, I need one!-So you could you say I’ve had my fashion mind on this style of jacket for just a little while. I was walking through H&M when I saw this chic jersey jacket and like all of my great stories start,  I “had” to have it!

The one thing that is always a mystery to me is H&M’s sizing. My jacket is a size 10. I thought about going for an 8, but just in case it should shrink at all I went with the 10. The arms around my biceps are the only part that is loose, which is great with me in case I want to push the sleeves up a bit. So, to the best to my knowledge I would say a 10 is a medium. I did try on a 4 just to see what it would feel like and it obviously was very tight.

As you all know by now I am obsessed with black and white.  I’m going to be on the lookout for a black jacket with white detailing!

If you see one help a sister out!

We have been so busy for the last three weekends and this Saturday we have my brothers CrossFit competition in Lincoln City! I can’t wait to see him compete again! This last Saturday we went to Nitro Circus with friends, we had a great time and thankfully there were no bad crashes or injuries!

What are you doing this weekend?

SPRING HIGH WAIST SKIRT

How adorable is this Shabby Apple gingham skirt?! Gingham is one of my favorite prints pretty much year round. I knew when I saw this beauty it would be the perfect spring skirt! Pairing a high waist with a crop top has been a big trend for awhile now, and this skirt makes it easy to accomplish that look! Shabby Apple’s quality of clothes always amazing me. I knew it would fit me perfectly showing off the smallest part of my waist. If you are reluctant (I know I was) to try the high waist/crop top look, a skirt like this is a great first shot. The flowy design of the skirt hides everything below the waist as opposed to trying it with shorts or pants which can be a hit or miss.

We took Porter to a big park in Eugene and had so much fun! He’s obsessed with the swing set (like his mommy was) and loves running! He’s been going to a friends house once a week to play for a few hours with other kids. We’ve really been trying to socialize him more with other kids his age anywhere we can since we don’t know too many people with younger children his age.

My birthday is today and I get FOUR kid free hours to go shopping!!! Anyone with kids knows exactly how excited I am!

Let me know if you have any questions about pairing crop tops with high waist anything or if you have any questions about Shabby Apple’s sizing!  I would love to help!
