a lovely living

Happy Friday, guys! With rain getting in the way of any potential shoots this week and LOFT offering another sale (30% off or 40% off with your Loft card and code LOVEMOM), a dressing room diaries just sort of fell into place. Audrey was with me for the first run, but we ran out of time as we had to get to her 2 year old well visit! So I ventured back again on my own to make sure I tackled as much as I could. So if you see some little two year old feet poking into some of the shots, you’ll know who they belong to ;) Let’s jump into things…

This top is very sweet. A little bit of eyelet detail and a little bit of fringe. A loose, comfortable fit with a ladylike feel. I’m not sold on these cropped denim though. They hit right at my mid-calf with a little flare that only seems to widen at the wrong place.

Here’s another beautiful top. Beautiful print, beautiful colors and a fun peplum hem. I paired it with these shorts, but would love it with white denim pants as well.

Black and white are not my best colors, but I just adore these gingham shorts. Think about pairing any number of bright colored tops or even some statement t-shirts with them!

And check out the back of this blouse….yes, please!

I thought this was a fun skirt to play with. I like how it can be dressed up for the office, but again could easily be dressed down with a cute t-shirt.

Ruffled, wrap skirts seem to be big at the moment, but many of them can be quite pricy. This one has a great fit and is priced very reasonably, especially with the sale! And the top…adorable!

I loved this little off-the-shoulder romper but I needed one size down and they were out of it. Had I been wearing the right size I’m pretty sure I would have loved it even more.

I thought this dress was so pretty on the hanger, but I often struggle with shift dresses looking too boxy on me and that was the case here. Still a beautiful dress though!

I liked this combo together. The top is soft and comfortable. It has a good length to it and looks cute tied in the front as well. The pants were also fun! Out of my element a bit, but I really like the wide leg style.

This sleeveless sweater is adorable. It comes in three colors, none of which looked good on me, but they may on you! The side tie was certainly hard to walk away from ;)

I may need to head back to the store now that I see this top again. Perfect with denim shorts or dressed up with some white or red pants!

Love, love this top! It came home with me and I’m already debating how to style it….wide leg coral pants, pink trousers, or navy jersey pants? I’m sure you’ll see it back on here soon!

This is a beautiful maxi. Perfect length (I’m 5’7″ for reference) and beautiful colors. The picture doesn’t do it much justice.

I had seen this top online and made sure I found it in store. I liked it but wasn’t quite as impressed with it as I was with others. Still cute though ;)

This light-weight floral sweater is cute and flattering. It has a slight bell shape that adds just a little swing to the top.

And we’ll wrap this post up with this fun fringe sweater! Very fun, but in a subtle way that would allow you to play with an array of bottoms to pair it with. These shorts, I should also mention were a great length for this 30 something mom of three ;)

Hope that helps you guys! If you have any questions regarding fit/sizing etc, feel free to ask! ¬†And make sure you let me know what goodies you find!! I also want to wish all of you Mothers, Grandmothers and Aunts a most wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! I could never do it all alone and I’m thankful for the army I have standing by me ;)
