I feel like I am wearing pajama pants! I am so happy palazzo pants are making a huge comeback because they are so comfortable, lightweight, and seriously I could sleep like a baby in these things and they are so easy to dress up or down. I tend to naturally be drawn to boho, hippie-ish styles while still looking effortlessly glam and put together. Mine are really long so it would be hard to wear flats with them but they have so many lengths and styles anyone could find a pair that’s right for them!

I am so excited for our trip to California! Even though I’m so glad I don’t live there anymore, there is no place like home. Something about being in the place you that you’ve grown up in and visiting the places you know like the back of your hand is so comforting and nostalgic and I’m due to feel that feeling again!

P.S. I can’t promise I’ll stop wearing floral print but I’ll try to lay off a little.

PANTS: Tildon, (I love these ones!) Love these too and under $20! | TOP: Lush | WEDGES: Dolce Vita, similar | BAG: Carlos Santana | WATCH: Michael Kors | BRACELET: Alex & Ani | NECKLACE: Nordstrom Rack

It was 75 degrees today!!! I grew up in a town that pretty much skips spring and goes right to 100 degree temperatures. The heat never used to bother me.  I think I have become an official Oregonian because I thought I was gonna have a heat stroke today! I know when we go to California this weekend I’m going to be miserable if I am struggling with this!

On Monday we adopted a puppy! She was a rescue from California. She’s a Chihuahua mix and her name is Lucy. I never thought I would want a Chihuahua, ever! But when I saw her I just sensed she needed me, so I went with my gut and couldn’t say no to her little puppy eyes. Today she had an appointment with the veterinarian and so far so good! Fred is jealous but besides that she is fitting right in with the family!

I think I have an obsession with Old Navy. I just cant pass up all the great spring sales this season! I always get a coupon and then go and end up finding a ton of stuff I love and want! I love this dress I found! I feel like I hardly have any long maxi dresses so when I saw this one it was perfect! When I was there all the dresses were on sale and they had so many great ones! I love the floral print and the slit on the side!

I have been looking for the perfect chambray top for years and I finally found it thanks to the Sweetest Stitch!  This shirt fits, feels, and lays exactly how I want it. It is seriously so soft and comfortable! I really couldn’t make up my mind today on what to wear with it because the options were endless. I thought about pairing it with white denim, yellow denim, faux leather leggings, over a black and white striped dress, wearing sneakers, heels, boots, wedges, sandals… Honestly I can wear it with ANYTHING and the quality is so great!

Sweetest Stitch is an online shopping boutique that sells young women’s contemporary clothing and accessories. Their pieces are modern, yet so chic and classy. I want everything they have!

Yesterday was a busy day for me! I woke up early to run the 2015 Richard Wigney Memorial Run for Autism Presented by and supporting the Bridgeway House! This was my first 5k! I ran with my best friend who ran it last year so it was so nice to have a partner who knew what to expect! It was an important event for me because as you might already know I privately care for two twin men with severe autism. Bridgeway House is an amazing program that serves the needs of children with autism while offering support to their families. They provide therapy, social skills groups, education, summer camps, family social events, and much more! So many kids with autism ran in the race and it was inspiring to see them socially and physically active! I’m so happy I could be a part of it!

A couple hours after that I went to a makeup seminar hosted by Tamara LammMakeup Artistry! Oh. My. Gosh! She is so amazing! So talented, so funny, and so knowledgeable! I chose her to do my wedding makeup so I figured this would be great for me to attend to get better acquainted with her and her work, and I’m so glad I did! If you are in the Eugene area I highly recommend her! Go check out her instagram too! Its @tamaralamm!

Now can we talk about how beautiful this shirt is?! It’s no secret I’m addicted to lace, I have an almost identical tank top version of this! This top is new and I already know I’m going to over wear  it! It’s too great not to!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
