Happy Memorial Day! 

What is everyone up to today? Surely, it’s filled with lots of bbq action, fun in the sun, and maybe a drink or two. We celebrated yesterday, and get to sit in the car for three hours driving back to my parent’s house. Whoo hoo! The hubby always drives, so I gotta keep myself entertained while riding shotgun. I’m reasonably the worst person to sit next to as I’m always on my phone, which you can trust that I’m online shopping or on Instagram. You guys do the same thing, correct? I know I’m not the only one. Best wife award of the year over here. This morning, I was gearing up for our week on the blog, and cactus’ were on my mind. We have a fun recipe for Friday, and it got me into a cactus state of mind. I found this adorable cactus plate online, and before you know.. I’m throwing myself a little cactus inspired brunch. Shop the post below to get a little touch of cactus love in your life!

 

 

I have had these pink + silver flatware in my Amazon wishlist forever. I haven’t found a good excuse to buy them yet, but this little mood board just landed them into my cart. Having different kinds of flatware; has become my new obsession. I love this vibe with the cactus plate that would sit on top or mixed with the ceramic barbara plate on top of a wooden charger. Add in some dusty rose colored fringed napkins, and heart eyes all around. Those wooden chargers are such a great deal as they are an add-on item, and are a multi-use item. And how cute is that geometric terrariumSuch a fun summer staple for your outdoor and even indoor decor. This tablescape has me itching for some summer fun. This tablescape would also be so cute for a bridal or baby shower too! 

Get all the goodies here!

Happy Mother’s Day!!!  We hope all of you are out there celebrating the mamas in your lives!  And if you are a mama, that you are feeling the love!!  What better way to spend Mother’s Day then with some relaxing alone time doing some online shopping?  I have to say, as much as I love my little family that may be exactly what I would want today, haha!  A day off!!  A day to just chill, maybe get my nails done, and have a glass of wine while perusing the web.

One of my favorite trends I’ve been seeing this Spring are jumpsuits.  I mean really, they’re nothing new, but what is out there right now is real good.  So I put together a few of my favorites to give you some inspiration.  I know they gave me some!  Jumpsuits are amazing because you can dress them up and down with just the change of a shoe – flats or heels.  And, really, they are always a show stopper!  They are unique and original and I feel like only the really stylish girls wear them.

So let’s jump on it!  Haha, pun was definitely intended.

Let’s start with one of my favorites, this adorable ruffled neck denim choice!  I just ordered it so you may see me in it soon, yikes!  Haha!!  but I couldn’t resist this one, I especially like the 60’s/70’s vibe.  

 

If you want to keep it in the blue family but don’t want to quite spend that much, this one is for you!!  It’s by ASTR and it’s perfect for Summer.  Loving that culotte look!!

When in doubt, whites and creams area always a good idea, especially for Spring & Summer.  They are fresh, clean and fun to accessorize with.  This white jumpsuit from Free People is fun for a casual occasion, while the cream jumpsuit from Clayton is such a great date night outfit!!

 

Our buddy and photographer extraordinaire Megan Welker was wearing this cute Madewell Jumper the other day!  I loved the way it looked on her.  She paired it with a denim jacket.  The print is subtle but cute and you could definitely dress this one up or down.

Abby has pre-ordered this cute Faithfull the Brand jumpsuit, I love the stripes on this!!  The colors are also great!  Another sexy jumpsuit with that low cut neckline.  This one is so much fun!!

I really love this clay color on this Enza Costa jumpsuit, it’s a great investment piece as it could easily transition into Fall!  Plus, it’s another one of those day to night jumpsuits, just undo a few of those buttons and woo hoo, sexy time!!!

Last but not least, this one is a little bit out there on price but I’m sort of obsessed…. The print is SO fun and retro!!!  If money wasn’t an issue this Whistles jumpsuit would be my pick!

Happy Shopping & Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Sunday! I thought this would be the perfect chance to chat decor for the best and most celebrated holiday… Mothers Day! YAY! Mother’s Day is always a big holiday in my family. With it right next to my birthday, May 11, my sisters birthday, May 10, and lastly my grandma’s birthday May 15th, we do a big celebration each year. When I was little, my world would be upside down when I had to share my birthday with other people. How dare my sister be born the day before! Now, as a mom myself, I love when the whole family gets together. Our little celebration party will usually take place as my aunts by the pool, where if we are lucky the weather will be nice for all the little ones to swim. This year, I wanted to help out with table decor. Any sort of event with several people, you don’t want to break the bank. I found some great affordable items from my favorite Target and my Best Friend, Amazon. So, ladies and even you gentlemen take note. Surprise mom with a pretty in pink table that will put even a bigger smile on her face for Mother’s Day.

Let’s start with the everyday basics that build any tablescape. I like to have some white plates, fun flatware, and colored glassware around the house to build a table setting for any occasion. When I saw these Dwell Modern Studio Stoneware Glazed Plates from Target, I had to buy them! Add to cart, yes please! Pretty amazing plates! I’m buying a couple of sets at a time currently to act as my everyday plates. If I were you, I would get these babies before I take them all! I also have these dusty rose ceramic plates that I got from Urban Outfitters that I will be putting on top of the white plate. It is always fun to layer your plates.  Any entertainer should have a classic champagne coupe in their collection, and I found these pretty ladies on Amazon, see them here. Since it will be brunch, I love these peach juice tumblers  to add to the table for juice. Add texture with a fringe placemat, and what I love about this one is that I can use these every day as well. Always a winner in my book when I can reuse my table setting items. Pop in some color and pattern with Threshold’s Pink Medallion Napkin. Love fun napkin holders? You will love this braided jute one. It reminds me of my macrame weavings; I love adding a little boho touch. Lastly, my favorite the new flatware I’m obsessed with. This modern white and gold flatware I got on Amazon, and it was one of the best purchases! A little pricey, but so worth it! 

As you can see, all these items you can totally use again and for any occasion. I always say when you purchase items like these, try to think of at least three different ways or occasions you can use them for. If you can, then it warrants its purchase right?! 

Now let’s talk flowers. Any Mother’s Day table needs pretty flowers in the middle. I love this DIY flower arrangement recipe from The House that Lars Built. I think it’s always a special touch when you do the flowers yourself, put some love and pride into making this table special for the mama in your life.

Some fun inspiration for next Sunday if you ask me! This will surely put a smile on your favorite Mama!

I added a couple more goodies that I love as well!

I don’t know about you, but when I think of Spring I think of pastels…  I love wearing pastels and have spotted quite a few amazing dresses in them lately.  Another thing I love about Spring are all the amazing holidays… One in particular that holds a big spot in my heart is Mother’s Day.  My family makes every holiday big, and Mother’s Day is no exception.  We usually get in our Sunday best and do some type of brunch or dinner to celebrate.  

So with that in mind, I’ve been looking at some fun new dresses to wear!  Here are a few of my favorites below.  These could also be worn all season long and into Summer…  And of course I made it super easy for you to shop the post at the bottom!

I basically love anything Mara Hoffman and this dress caught my eye right away.  It’s a little bit more classic than I usually go with what I wear, but the colors and fit of it look amazing.  To me, this is the ultimate Spring look.

We talked about how the off the shoulder trend is huge and one of our favorites in this post.  I love how this dress by Somedays Lovin is such a neutral color that is somewhat of a basic, but it’s also the trend of the moment.  Plus the price is great!!

Both Abby and I have our eyes on this pretty dress by Auguste… I just love love the print, this is a dress I would wear everyday into the Summer!  I’m a HUGE yellow fan and this pale creamy yellow with the pretty florals is just the prettiest.  I just need to get me a tan and buy this thing!

So continuing with my yellow obsession…  Haha!  I can’t help myself!  Spell is one of my favorite brands right now…  Each season their collections get better and better.  This Spring I literally want every single piece and this dress is one of them!

Last but not least, it wouldn’t be me unless I threw in a sexy little short number… Gotta throw it out there once and a while ladies!!  There is so much about this Lovers + Friends dress that I love… From the fringe to the stripes to the delicate straps, all I would need is a pair of sandals, and that hat the model is wearing isn’t too bad either!

  Do you have some shopping inspiration now?!  I know I do… Like I said, you can shop the post here!
