This just might be my new favorite outfit! I’ve always loved gingham. Growing up I had multiple sets of Ralph Lauren gingham sheets and they were wonderful! I love navy gingham with white pants, especially paired with cognac accessories.

I feel like I accomplished so much this weekend! Saturday I went to several yard sales and got some great stuff! That evening John took me on a date night to sushi! We tried a different place this time and it was so good. Then we went to frozen yogurt which has been my weakness lately! I want it all the time! Sunday we spent all day cleaning and painting. I painted a couple of lamps that I bought on Saturday and John worked on getting our bedroom painting done. We have been trying to get it finished for a couple of months now, we have just been so busy!

What did you guys do this weekend?!

Thanks to Brandzaffair I found this awesome strapless crochet trim dress on Nordstrom for a steal of a deal! One of the coolest features Brandzaffair offers to their members is being able to chat with friends while you shop together without leaving your computer (and without having to take off your comfy sweats). They have tons of your favorite high end brands with already laid out deals that you won’t have to search for.

I’m so excited to have this dress in my closet this summer because the longer I wore it the more I loved it! I was a little skeptical about how this dress would look and lay on my body but that immediately went away when I put it on. It’s so perfect and unlike anything I have in my closet!

Yesterday was my second time ever doing CrossFit and let me tell you, I feel like I’m dying! It was so much fun but I’m so sore! It is probably the hardest I’ve ever pushed myself. I hate it when I’m doing it but love how I feel afterwards!

P.S. Don’t forget to check out Brandzaffair for the ultimate online shopping experience! Have a great day everyone!

Sorry it’s been so long since I have posted!! We packed up last week for our trip to California and it was a super busy 5 days! My nephew had a baseball tournament right when we rolled into town. So that was our first stop (after In-N-Out of course). It was so great to see him get to pitch; he is so much fun to watch!

On Monday my grandma gave Porter his first haircut! He looks so much like a little boy and not my little baby anymore 🙁  He did well at keeping still but after a few minutes he was over it. I seriously kept as much of his hair as I could! It was like gold to me trying to keep every last piece of his baby curls. A little dramatic? Probably!

I took John to some of my favorite boutiques in town along with a few new ones I hadn’t been to yet. We first went to my favorite, Plum Crazy! They have the best jewelry and accessories! My hometown is a cowboy town so they have great western and turquoise (my favorite) jewelry! Then we went to a newer one, Cook Red Bluff and they had the cutest cooking and baking stuff! John bought me an adorable handmade apron! Another one I hadn’t been to was The Closet on Main! They had beautiful clothes and jewelry! I don’t think there was one thing in there that I didn’t want! Really cute dresses, accessories, and a jean vest I was obsessing over badly!

Tuesday was my birthday and my sister and I went to lunch together and frozen yogurt (I had Starbucks and frozen yogurt non-stop when I was there), then had a big family dinner that night! It was a great visit. Just being able so see all my family and the simple moments of picking my nephews and niece up from school are the parts that I cherish the most. I wish it could happen more often but I’m thankful for the times that I can.

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.
