Life lately

Hello all!

Happy Daylight Savings Time! (said somewhat sarcastically)

I’m so thankful for the extra hour of daylight in the evenings, but man am I paying for it in sleep!

Spring feels like the perfect time to make a few changes! Normally I fight change tooth and nail (silly and pointless, I know) but this time, I’m ready!

It’s never too late to make changes! Life is a series of trying things, finding what works and what doesn’t and starting over. I for one and excited about what’s on the horizon!

There’s only one person to blame if you aren’t where you want to be or happy with what you’re doing–YOU! Do something everyday to get closer to your dreams! It all adds up.

Have a great day, y’all!

Wish-List Wednesday

Hello everyone and welcome back to my little corner of the internet!

I had a snow day on Monday and while I was at home in my comfy pj’s I couldn’t help but browse the internet for pretty spring stuff! My mantra about spring is  “If I dress for it, it will come!” . Below, my current wish list:

Merona ponte shift dress

I love this beautiful green. It will be great with jackets or cardigans until the temps start to rise and then I’ll wear it all by itself!

Kate Spade Carousel Bangle

I love this beautiful watch in Gold Confetti! So happy and fun!

THESE shoes. Perfect for Easter and jazzing up all of my neutral summer dresses! Plus, there’s a bow.

Gazing longingly at spring clothes has always been my go-to when the weather outside is frightful.

What’s your favorite thing to do on a snow day?

Welcome Back Friends!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! If I had posted this weekend it would have to have been titled “Sickly Saturday” or something because I spent the whole weekend and yesterday sick and in my pajamas. Ugh! What a waste! So today I’m happy to be posting a pic of myself in something other than slippers and a robe!

I mixed it up for today’s post and put together stripes and a bright floral print. A few years ago I would never have put something like this together, but I have to say I love the fresh look of it! After watching all of my favorite bloggers mix up their patterns I thought I’d give it a try.

Mixing it up for work!

While it’s fun having a fashion “comfort zone”, it’s really nice to change it up once in a while! My birthday is next week, and my Birthday Resolution for this year is to mix things up more often. It gives you a fresh perspective on everything!

Have a great day everyone!

Week in Review + Casual Friday

YES!!! We made it readers! Happy Friday!

I hope everyone has had a great week and that you all have some fabulous weekend plans!  I’m looking forward to some relaxation, reading and maybe a movie since we are supposed to get rain this weekend. Oh! And I think I’m going to bring all of my summer stuff out of storage! I can’t wait to see all my favorite shoes again.

So much happened in our country this week...I taped this little reminder up at my desk.

What a week, y’all. First the events in Boston, and now Texas. Oh, and don’t forget about North Korea. Sometimes I like to write out a Bible verse and hang it where I can see it to get me through the day.

This is what I've been doing on my lunch breaks......reading in the sunshine, so nice!

I’ve been trying to spend as much time outside as possible, before this lovely spring weather turns to a hot and humid summer. Getting some fresh air helps me get through the rest of my workday! I work in a town center, so some days I just take a walk…..and try my best not to stop off at Macy’s.    

Keeping Up Appearances had a record number of views this week!! THANK YOU to everyone who checked it out!

It's casual Friday! Neon jeans, J. Crew Factory; chambray shirt, JCP; Leopard scarf, H& M; flats, Tory Burch.

I’m keeping it casual today in jeans and flats. I LOVE these pink jeans so much! I wore them for the first time last weekend, and couldn’t wait to put them on again today! This time I added some leopard print and my comfy chambray button down.

Happy Friday readers!

 

 

Spring + Fabulous Finds

Welcome back friends!!

The weather here has been so fabulous! Spring has truly sprung in Williamsburg! I’m celebrating by wearing a fun dress and sitting outside drinking lemonade (mixed with a little sweet tea vodka!) This is my favorite season, when it’s warm but not hot and there’s a sweet little breeze blowing.
