Monthly Archives for April 2017

Pink + Pink

Happy Monday, all! I hope you enjoyed a lovely weekend. You may have caught on my Insta-stories how we ripped out our front landscaping, and by we I mean my brother (the landscaper) and my husband (the guy that loves ripping up anything)! We now have nice piles of dirt that I get to stare […]

Spring Finds Under $50

Spring seems to be in full swing lately. 70’s one day and 50’s the next which is typical here in central, PA. The grass is greener than ever, the buds are all out, and so are the weeds! ;) It’s always fun to sprinkle in a few new pieces into your spring wardrobe so today […]

Strawberry Pie

I’ve always wanted to prepare a strawberry pie and can’t say exactly why it took me so long to give it a try. As strawberry season moves in to full swing shortly, let me recommend you put those berry’s to good use! I made this pie for our Easter dinner with my family and it […]

Easter 2017

It has become our tradition to head to Penn State’s Arboretum after church on Easter to take family pictures. As much as my personality would like this to be an orderly process, I’ve come to understand that it goes much more smoothly when we go with the flow….the flow of the kids, that is!  We […]

ShopBop Sale Picks

It’s been a long week and I was tempted to skip a post today, however it’s difficult for me to withhold any great sales from you! Through tonight you can get 20%-25% off your purchase at ShopBop, depending on how much you spend. This is a great time to grab some staples like a fresh […]

Dressing Room Diaries: LOFT F&F

Ok ladies, LOFT has their Friends & Family sale going on (ie 40% off your purchase when you use code: FRIENDS), so I’m taking you back into the dressing room and sharing some of my favorites with you! I found a little bit of everything as I browsed around the store and that’s one of […]

Coral Midi

There are some dresses that come and go in my closet and others hang around for years to come. This one falls into the latter category, for sure! I grabbed it last year when it only came in two (maybe three?) colors, but the secret must have gotten out because it’s back in five colors this […]

Casual Spring Layers

I hope you guys have had a great week! My husband has been away the past few days and I’m sure looking forward to his return tonight! My baby (she’s nearly 23 months but she’s still my baby) has been struggling with a cough that’s keeping her from getting much restful sleep. So I’ll be […]

Easter Dressing

In case anyone is still on the hunt for an Easter dress (or just a really great spring dress), I’ve gathered some of my favorites for you today. Lace, ruffles, bows, stripes, floral, cold shoulder….I’ve got you covered in every department. Now you’ll just have to figure out how to narrow them down! Do you […]

Embroidered Gingham

Anyone in need of a Spring statement top? I think I found it for you! I love that we just celebrated JCrew’s unofficial National Stripe Day (did you follow along with them on social media?), but I’m voting for a National Gingham Day next! Anyone with me? I adore the classic print, but love the […]
