Derby Party

Happy Tuesday!! Hope everyone’s week is going well! It is only Tuesday and I’m already exhausted! I think I’m still trying to catch up from the weekend! On Saturday evening my friend Kristen hosted a fabulous Derby Party for a few close friends! It was soooo much fun!! Did we actually watch the race?! Nooooo! We chatted, snacked, and drank instead! I was told the mint juleps were delicious… I had to stick with pink lemonade.. The food was aaaamazing!!!! Kristen even made each of us a “hat,” which were actually super fun headbands!! She even made Miss Libbey one! Libbey thought she was big stuff hanging with the girls! She was our entertainment for the night! She is quite the show off! I’m thinking we need to make derby parties a yearly tradition! I’ll take any excuse to dress up:)

You guys!! I can’t stop wearing my faux fur vest!! I have multiple, but the one above is just sooooo soft and it has pockets!! What?!?! I know, amazing! I feel like faux fur can really spice up any outfit… That’s what I tell myself anyway!

I cannot believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I’m kind of sad it is already here.. I love the baking, decorating, shopping, and family time, so I’m sad to see it all end… I’m not going lie, I will still watch Elf and the Hallmark channel for at least another week!

Thank you so much for reading!

Happy Tuesday!!! I can’t believe Christmas is next week??!!! Time needs to slow down!!! I’m pretty much done shopping, but have soooo much wrapping to do and haven’t been able to bake any cookies yet… Yikes!!! Libbey turned 15 months yesterday! It’s exciting, but sad at the same time:(
She is no longer a baby. She is sooooo much fun though and definitely keeps me on my toes! Can’t wait to watch her open presents! She already tries to open the gifts I have already wrapped! I can’t keep them under the tree anymore…
So, everyone needs a felt floppy hat! I probably said this last winter, but I’m serious!! Go get one NOW!!! They are all over this year! You can even find them at Forever 21 and H&M!!! I’m thinking while we are all out and about finishing up our Christmas shopping, we should pick up a little something for ourselves like a new hat:)

Did you notice my little photo bomber:)

Messy Hair Don’t Care

You guys… This wind is out of control! My mop is all over the place in these pictures! I thought I would solve that problem by pulling it up, but clearly I was wrong!
My outfit is super comfy and casual! I’m loving my boyfriend capris from the Gap if you haven’t noticed! They are just so comfortable and I love the color! I’m usually not a light washed denim person, but for some reason I’m obsessed with these! My tee is from from Target from the litte girls’ section, on sale for $5!! Holllllaaaaa!!!! But seriously, I thought it was so cute! Go get it now!!!!

The New LBD

Happy Tuesday!!!
So, once again I have been MIA from the blog…sorry!! I have been so busy and it has been so nice out, so we are taking advantage of the beautiful weather! We have been working on staining our deck that we built last year! Hopefully by the end of the week the deck will be stained and the pastel furniture ( yes I said pastel:) ) will be on it!! We also got Libbey’s swing set put together!! Next we have to tackle the landscaping…ugh..

Over the weekend I went to one of my good friend’s wedding reception!! It was beautiful!! The bride looked stunning! It makes me want to get married again!! To my husband of course!!! I could plan weddings all day everyday!! I didn’t really get any good outfit pictures, so I laid out my outfit for you guys. I’m in love with the dress I wore!! I’m thinking it might be my go to LBD!! I feel like it is a classic dress that I will be wearing for years!! The options for jewels and shoes are endless!! Almost any color will go with the dress!!

Seeing Spots

Happy Tuesday lovelies!!
Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter weekend!
Miss Libbey had a great first Easter! She got 3 Easter baskets! Lucky girl! The weather was sooooo nice over the weekend! It felt amazing to finally break out wedges!! I was so excited about dressing Libbey up for mass and getting out the door in time that I forgot to take outfit pics! I have a few pics of my little family, so you can still see my outfit!

My pants are from Forever 21! I loooove them!! They are so comfy and cool!!
They aren’t online anymore, but these are very similar!!!
My shirt is from Target, but I got it over a year ago. You can seriously put almost any color with these pants!! Yellow would be super cute!! I was in a hurry and had to find a shirt that didn’t have to be ironed! Haha I think a flowy blouse would be cute!!!
I can’t find my necklace online anymore, but this and this would be cute with the polka dot pants!
Miss Libbey’s outfit was from Von Maur!
