This embroidered white top from the Sweetest Stitch is such a springtime staple! I’m always looking for a amped up white tee that’s easy and cute, but not too casual, and this one is everything! Embroidery is such a hot trend this year but I know it can be a little intimidating. Trying pieces with thick colorful stitch work is hit or miss, so a top that’s neutral like this one is great. I just saw this embroidered dress on their site… So cute!! Perfect for summer!

I haven’t even posted since we got back from California! We had such a great time! I’m missing my family so much already! Porter played so hard with all his cousins. One night we were there he fell asleep at 5:30 and slept till 7:00 the next day!!! I was so nervous he would wake up at midnight, ready to party, but thank God he slept through the night! My hometown is known for it’s rodeo and he was so excited to go, but he only lasted about 2o minutes, lol. Thankfully we had a plan for my parents to pick him up in case that happened.

I just started reading The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. I’m not very far but it’s so good already! I can already tell it’s gonna be a forever favorite!

The Spring, Summer, and Fall Suede Skirt!

I love getting the absolute most out of the clothing in my closet, so anything I can wear for more than  one season I am happy with! In the fall, I wore a suede skirt with a turtleneck and thigh high boots. It was super comfy and I knew in the spring/summer I would be able to wear it styled for warmer weather.

My off shoulder crop top is is from H&M and their sizing is always a little tricky and its hard to know how its going to fit. This top is a size 10 and in my opinion, I would say it equals out to a size medium.  Remember always try it on first!

Did anyone do anything special with their husbands or dads on Father’s Day? On Sunday my sister-in-law got married so we spent Father’s Day at Shotgun Creek. Such a beautiful park with everything you need to have a great time!

I finished the book You before Me a couple of weeks ago and my friends and I are going to see it this Saturday! I liked the book, but I’m hoping the movie is better! Most movies aren’t, but I heard this one is! My book club is reading Game of Thrones now, and I actually really like so far! I haven’t watched any of the T.V series so I’m going into it super naive!

Happy Friday Loves!!!

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!

I know I am way late, but how was everyone’s Easter?! It was so much fun to watch Porter hunt for eggs! The weather wasn’t the best so we did an indoor hunt! Does anyone have any special Easter traditions? My dad, brother, and his girlfriend came over for coffee and breakfast and John’s parents made us a great dinner!

When I saw this at Old Navy I knew it would be my Easter dress! I liked the print and shape and it’s something I will get a lot of use out of this Spring and Summer! They have a bunch of really cute prints still available online. I bought this Blank NYC jacket a couple of years ago, and it’s still one of my favorites! I love the color and zipper details, it goes with so much. As you may have seen I have been wearing these gorgeous heels a ton lately! I think they are all sold out except in size 10, but there are some great similar ones that I will link below!

It’s finally been warm enough to plant flowers! Last weekend we bought hydrangeas (my fav) to plant in the front yard, and a hanging basket for the porch. Along with the gorgeous spring weather we’ve been having, comes the dreaded allergies! Mine haven’t been too bad, but I know it’s coming!

Happy sneezes and watery eyes to you all! 🙂
