When All You Need Is A Little Nudge...

I was completely forcing spring when I shot this look.  You know, hoping Mother Nature would take the hint & bring on warmer temperatures.  She's since caught on & granted us beautiful weather, but sometimes all you need is a little nudge ;).

I recently relocated my giant jewelry dresser into the walk-in closet, so these two pieces were in closer proximity than usual.  I couldn't resist pairing them when I noticed the blues matched almost exactly...

Eight Days Remain

Eight Days.  That's all that's left of my maternity leave.  I know I am so, so blessed to get an entire year off when most only get 1/3 of that.  However, that doesn't make it any easier on this mama.  It's all I know, just as it's all you mama's with different policies know.  I'm bringing this up because I received a few not-so-nice DM's on instagram & emails asking me to quit complaining because I've had more leave that most could dream of.  Apples to oranges...

This outfit was the perfect for a casual morning spent at playgroup.  I also had it tossed in my suitcase for our last trip back to the midwest (obvi because of the blue details), but never got a chance to wear it (ran outta days & overpacked).  This tunic was marketed on F21 as a dress, but I've never used it as one die to how incredibly short it was.  I also shrunk it in the dryer by accident awhile back, so it's definitely only a shirt now :)

Photo Friday: All Things March!

Finally getting around to re-capping the month of March (whoops).  I've been a little preoccupied attempting to get everything lined up for my return to work in 11 days (gulp).  I can hardly talk about it you guys, I'm a mess just thinking about it...

March was an amazing month for us around here, complete with a girls night in with our oldest nieces, St. Patrick's Day crafts & celebrations, & new rain boots/front door mat.  Check out the photos below to see what we've been up to :)

Girls night requires two things in my book: cupcakes & wine :)
Girls night ready: loungewear & extra caffeine :) (Henley: Free People, Leggings: Joe Fresh)
Chocolate on chocolate, per Zoey's request :)
Home Sweet Home doormat, via Target :)
Zoey's 1st official pair of rain boots, a gift from Gma (Joe Fresh) :)
Zoey helped me make the fruit loop rainbows on St. Patty's Day morning :)
Rainbows & Clouds for breakfast :)
Simple outfit with a touch of green (All F21).
Homemade green beers while the girls napped :)
Brisket poutine for lunch at Beertown :)
Mill Street Organic, green style :)

Happy Weekend :)

Just a Touch

As I've mentioned before, I started gravitating towards all things pink when we found out we were having girls.  I was the first one to know that my first niece or nephew on my side of the family was in fact, a BOY! I kinda did the same thing, unintentionally, & started gravitating towards the color blue.  It wasn't until I went to pack my suitcase (pretty last minute, I might add) for his arrival, that I noticed this phenomenon.  I've really enjoyed the pops of blue & adding just a touch to an otherwise plain outfit.  I wore this exact outfit the day he got to come home from the hospital & the day this overly-excited auntie got to get her hands on him...
