Loving Lace

Good morning!!!!
Can you believe today is the last day of March?! Craziness! Time is flying by!!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Libbey and I attended a Baby “Sprinkle” on Saturday afternoon! It was somewhat nice out, so I took advantage of the warmer weather and broke out the wedges! Well, closed toe wedges! I’m not spontaneous enough to break out sandals yet!

I’m obsessed with lace! You guys will see me wearing it all the time in posts once it gets warmer out! I think lace is just so girly and classy!
I found my cute little lace dress at Forever 21 about a month ago! I love the sleeves on the dress!!! Unfortunately I’m too tall to wear it as a dress, so I paired it with leggings! I can’t find the dress online, but I’m loving this one!! Perfect for summer!!
Wedges: Target (super comfy!)
Leggings: SimpleAddiction.com
Watch: Charming Charlie, can’t find online, but check this one out!
Bracelet: Forever 21
Earrings: Forever 21 (similar)

Wedge Obsessed!!

One more day until the weekend!! Woo hoo! I’m looking forward to this weekend because we don’t have much going on for once! Libbey and I are going to a baby shower, but that is the only thing on our agenda and I’m ok with that!

So, once again I have been “window shopping” online! My husband told me I should give up online shopping for Lent! Haha I have yet to buy anything, but Easter seems so far away… Hope I can last that long!
I’m dying over all the cute wedges that are out right now!! I looove wedges! They are definitely the shoes I wear the most in the spring/summer! It is not warm enough to break them out just yet where I live, but hopefully in the next few weeks!!!

Below are a few pairs of wedges I am DYING to have!!

Top: TJ Maxx, but I like this one from J.Crew Factory and it is on sale!!
Jeans: J.Crew Factory(similar)
Shoes: Sperrys( little boys size! They are cheaper!!) These are similar!
Sunnies: JCPenney(similar)

I love Sperrys! They are so comfy! I mean I have shoes that are much cuter, but sometimes I go for comfort depending on what I’m doing that day! I feel like Sperrys are kind of like Uggs. They aren’t the cutest shoes, but they are both oh so comfy!

Is It Spring Yet??

Hello hello!!

I can’t believe tomorrow is the first day of Spring??!! Stop it!!! I’m so ready for spring colors! Although in Illinois spring does not mean we will automatically have spring weather:( I’m sure we have another month or so of cold weather.. Gross! Oh well!! I’ll still dress like it is warm out!!

Today’s outfit is kind of a mix of winter and spring colors! I’m trying to slowly transition in to spring like attire!!

The Perfect Blouse

Is it spring yet?? Two days ago it was 77 degrees and then it snowed that night.. What??!!! I refuse to my wear my winter coats anymore. Over them! It is so hard to get dressed this time of year because one day it is warm and the next it is freezing cold. Blouses are my go to top this time of year because they are light, so you can wear them with layers! Blouses are definitely a must in the spring for me! Plus there are some super cute spring like prints out right now!!
Below I put together a few outfits I plan on wearing in the next week!
