Lately, I have been on a closet purge.

And my purge, I mean refocus. Yes, I have been rather good about curbing my shopping. But no, I haven't stopped altogether. And Yes, I have been great lately about cleaning out my closet and giving items away or reselling them. And Yes, I have noticed that I have been adding only blue, blue striped and white items to my closet. I have been in the constant mood for monochromatic looks, as seen in this navy head to head look on Instagram, so this head to toe white look was no different. While we shot this when the weather was cool and thus the outfit felt early spring/ late winter appropriate, it would work year around. 

While I know that all of us have a couple white tops and your favorite white skinnies to easily pair together, shop some of my favorite white bell sleeve tops below. {I just got these white skinny distressed skinnies, under $90, and they are soo comfy! Seriously. so comfortable. On a recent shot with my blog photographer, I made up more outfits around them because I didn't want to take them off in the back of my minivan!}

window treatments




I am currently obsessed with these window treatments.

Our current home is extremely light. You don't need any lights on until the sun goes down and the back doors open onto our private backyard, thus needing no drapes. Nevertheless, with a new design project under way, I can't help but gravitate towards these beautiful photos. The window treatments in these photos completely make the room and add an understated elegance without the overuse of color or textures. Totally in love {and stored away via Pinterest for inspiration!}.

white off the shoulder top



This pearl off the shoulder top is to die for and it just got marked down to under $60. I am shocked that it is still available, but if it sells out in the meantime, I have included some other budget friendly options. 









I got lots of questions about my dress for a friend's wedding. It is actually a J.Crew Bridesmaid dress. I bought it for the wedding season of 2014 when we had eight weddings. I was only able to wear it to the first one {remember this Instagram from New Orleans?} because I was pregnant with my daughter and it quickly didn't fit. She was a little stow away for that first wedding in New Orleans and I was so nauseous. It was easy to pass my morning sickness off as a continual hangover, but the thought of New Orleans still makes my stomach a little queasy. We need to go back ASAP to remedy this!

shop some of my current favorite long spring dresses that are spring wedding ready!




off the shoulder smocked dress


This dress is easily the comfiest in my closet. I purchased for my growing baby bump {remember seeing it here?} but I convinced myself I would use it in the spring with a new baby as it is also easy to nurse in. It is from last year, but here is this year's version {hello backless!} but I found a dupe in four colors here








The cutest and comfiest spring and wedding ready sandal for under $80!

I have, literally, worn this vest every month of the year from date night to the gym. Paired with cozy cashmere and the black distressed skinny jeans that I get asked about most, I am comfy, cozy and ready for any mom activity.

How lovely is this room???

I would totally feel like an adult if I had a room this inviting. As I hinted in a couple of blog posts and Insta-stories, we are undergoing a design project and measurements are being taken today! I can't wait to share more inspiration and sneak peaks, but for now, you can follow my current decor cravings on the navy & orange Pinterest page.

You really can't turn anywhere without finding an adorable block heel sandal.

I love that there are endless options, at all price points, right in time for wedding season. With my brother's upcoming wedding {on the grass} I have been on the hunt for a comfortable yet cute shoe that I will want to wear again. I will {literally!} have my hands full! Both of my adorable kids will be in the ceremony, my husband is also in the ceremony and I want my mother to enjoy the moment, so I need to be ready to chase after either one of them, dance all night and be comfortable. 

I bought the ankle tie sandals {lower left corner above} and the two selections in the lower right corner for the festivities of the weekend. I figure I can break them in on the upcoming bachelorette weekend and see what one matches the bridesmaid dress the best. The ankle tie strap sandals totally look like Manolo Blahniks, yet at a fraction of the price!

For all you wedding guests, bridesmaids and block heel shoes lovers, shop these amazing selections below!

gingham & {faux} leather











shirt: BLACK AND WHITE GINGHAM BUTTON DOWN // pants: FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS {on sale!} // shoes: WHITE CONVERSE // sunglasses: RAY-BAN AVIATORS // bag: SAINT LAURENT BLUSH BAG // bracelets: HERMES CLIC CLAC // DAVID YURMAN BANGLES // lips: MAC LIP LINER in Edge to Edge


I like to wear leggings most days.

Yes, I know, they are not pants. But I have often heard that working out, the hardest part is getting dressed. With two little ones, I never know when I will have the opportunity, so I like to be dressed and at the ready to get a work out snuck into our day. Whether that be some quick step up lunges on the coffee table or a run with the double stroller, I find that if I am ready, then a workout might actually happen. 

I have learned that my daughter finds if mom steps up on the coffee table, she is more inclined to climb up there as well, so I have to do this when she is napping...or not looking. 

Nevertheless, these leggings are too cute to work out in, but they literally feel like your favorite pair of lululemons. They are currently on major sale, and there are so many reasons to add them to your shopping bag: they are super flattering, under $100 {you can get them up to 25% off}, no animals were hurt in the making of your leggings, and they are just as cute with a comfy flannel as they are for girls night out with a cute top and heels!
