Pretty Daisy


Yes, it's officially weather for matching separates!  I've wanted a cute matching crop top/skirt for awhile (thanks to Jamie) but couldn't find anything to my liking.  I happened to pop into a Target recently and found this cute number!  No joke, Target has really stepped up their game in the women's department.  Not only did they have other patterns in this style, they had tons of cute crop tops and printed dresses.  I had to walk away pretty quickly because I didn't want to do something I'd regret.  But I am a little excited to shop there in the future.  You know, when I have the extra money.

Pink and White


I love white dresses.  I have about six or seven of them but they rarely make their way out of the closet.  If you haven't noticed, I'm not a huge accessories person.  I understand how they can totally change an outfit but for some reason I just don't like to wear a lot of jewelry.  I have a hard enough time remembering to wear my wedding ring!  Because a white dress needs a lot of accessories around it I just tend to skip past them.  I'm trying my best to get out of my comfort zone though!

Inspiration: Swimsuits

I've been a little obsessed with swimsuits lately.  I haven't purchased a new one in a couple years so I've been on the hunt for one for months.  I knew I wanted something retro inspired, but when I looked into Modcloth's vast selection I kind of went crazy!  Here are my top picks (and P.S. a lot of their suits are 20% off... Click HERE to view some more):

This one is definitely the front runner.  It also comes in red which makes me even more conflicted!  I love the full coverage and it seems like it really holds well in the bust.

This print is so cute!  Of course I'd love a great novelty print on a swimsuit.  I also like the subtle detail on the top.

I'm kind of sad this one is out of stock because I love the gingham print.  Thankfully, this one is also available in red (and it's on sale!)

I think this is my personal favorite from the two pieces I've looked at.  Unfortunately, it isn't available just yet and those cups look like they're better suited for a smaller busted woman.  Random fact: I'm actually allergic to bananas!

This is a more modest piece but equally as cute as the others.  The little ruffled bottom is so cute and feminine!

The perfect ruffled swimsuit!  Even though it's a two piece the ruffles somehow make it more modest.  I've never seen anything like it :)

I went ahead and bought one of these today.  Can you guess which one?  Have you purchased your swimsuit for summer yet?

Flock Together: My Favorite Striped Outfits

It's that time again!  I'm over on the Flock Together blog today showcasing one of my favorite prints: Stripes!  I didn't realize until recently that I translated that quite frequently in my past outfits.  Click HERE to check out my favorite ones!

Honey Bunny

Modcloth cream tweed dress

To those who celebrate, happy Easter!  I'm having a very low key Easter this year so I wanted to put together a cute but comfortable outfit.  I think it's pretty fitting that I wanted to include lots of pastels.  I started with a somewhat blank canvas: my new tweed Modcloth dress.  I then built around it using pastel accessories.  I don't normally wear statement necklaces but this one was perfect for the outfit and occasion.  I added one of my favorite cardigans and pretty much stopped there.  I think my hair was enough of an accessory that I didn't want to go overboard.

Be Mine This Time

Hell Bunny polka dot skirt

I can't tell you how happy I am to wear crop tops this year.  The crop top/high waist is one of my favorite looks.  Unfortunately (but not really), I was busy growing a belly last year!  While I'm not back to my pre baby weight yet, this combo is perfect for hiding your extra chub without looking matronly.  It's not about covering everything up, but strategically averting the eye to more "favorable" places.

What's On My Radar: Current Loves

While I know Coachella is all the talk this weekend, I'm probably one of the only "California girls" who isn't really into festivals.  I've attended in the past and I'm just not the type to spend a weekend in the sweltering heat.  That, or maybe I'm just getting old.  So while others are blogging about their festival styles, I'm showing you my picks for this month.  It's been crazy hot (like summer hot) here so I'm looking for sweet and summery pieces this time around.  Check them out!
I'm not going to even pretend like I'm not obsessed.  Mermaid printed flats with seashell cap toes?  I don't think I need to say anything more :)

I think this is the perfect dress for Easter and the oh so busy wedding season coming up.  I love how romantic the lace is but also how easily it can be dressed down for an everyday look.

I'm dying over this tote!  Unfortunately, it's back ordered at the moment but you best believe I'll be snagging this one up for the upcoming beach season.

If you don't already own a Charter School cardigan, you should!  I first tried one on last year when I modeled for Modcloth.  It's ridiculously comfortable, perfectly fitted, and comes in pretty much every color under the sun.  I love the pretty colors in the stripes on this particular cardigan.  The perfect print mixing piece!

Okay, so I'm not completely sold on the idea of wearing a romper but this one definitely has me considering it.  I love the print (obviously) and the cut is both pretty and perfect for breastfeeding.  Sometimes I purchase clothing that's dependent on how quickly I can get out of it to feed Bianca.  This romper seems perfect!

What's on your wishlist this month?

She's My Silver Lining

Modcloth Paper Moon Floral Dress

This is an outfit I wore to a baby shower over the weekend.  A very close friend of mine is due in May and I couldn't wait to celebrate with her.  We've been friends since we were fifteen so it's been such a wonderful experience growing up together.  She is also having a girl so I'm sure our babies will grow up to be just as great of friends as we are.  Oh yeah, she's also the genius behind my new hair color so you can imagine how much I appreciate her :)

Three Months

What a month it's been!  I feel like Bianca has reached so many milestones these past few weeks.  For one, she's discovered her voice.  So it's been a lot noisier here lately.  It's the cutest thing though.  She laughs, yells, and has her own little language.  She can now hold her neck up pretty well so she's able to sit up with assistance.  That's been wonderful because she can sit next to me while I eat or watch tv.

She's doing great in the length department but her weight is on the lower side.  While her doctor isn't concerned, I've been feeding her as much as I can to get her weight up.  Maybe she'll just be tall and thin like my brother (so so lucky!).

She's grown out of almost all her newborn clothes and I definitely got emotional about it.  Not because her clothes are so cute, but because I feel like she's already growing too fast.  I know she can't be a baby forever but I kind of wish she would.  She's just too cute, I want to eat her up!

Ethereal Kind of Thing

Modcloth Ethereal Thing dress

The dress of my dreams.  It's finally mine!  I was talking about my love for a Facebook swap group last week and I received this gorgeous dress because of it.  I'm not a "lucky" person in general, but I feel fortunate that I can now hang this beauty in my closet.  Apparently I'm not the only person obsessed with it and at least twenty other people were looking for it too.  I was online at the perfect time I guess!

Only the Lonely

Dear Creatures striped dress

This Dear Creatures dress was on my wishlist for so long I had almost forgotten about it.  Thanks to a very wonderful Facebook swap group this dress is now mine.  I find myself swapping a lot of my rarely worn dresses these days.  I know many people can part with items in their wardrobe like it's nothing but I've always had weird emotional attachments to my clothes.  I can't really pinpoint what changed, but I'm really starting to like getting new "free" dresses in the mail.  I have two more coming to me this week!
