 Asos Crop // Asos Shorts // J.Crew Bag // J.Crew Bracelet // Madewell Wedges // Rakani Watch

When I first saw this two piece set I thought it was the cutest thing and imagined all the ways I would wear it (like I usually do when I really want something).  I knew I would obviously wear them together but also thought they would be cute on their own and liked that I would have lots of options.  When i wore it though, my sister let me know she was pretty positive she had this exact outfit as a 90's child.  Nothing like an older sister to bring you all the way down.

F21 Dress // Ily Couture Sweater // Sam Edelman Sandals // Selima Sunnies

I've been getting a little sick this week so I'm gonna keep this one short and sweet.  I love dresses and I really love this one, the open back is definitely what got me with this little number.  The sweet floral pattern and loose fit made it the perfect dress to wear for a casual and busy Saturday.

Hope your week has been a little better than mine!

J.Crew Tee // J.Crew Jeans, Similar // Franco Sarto Wedges // Michael Kors Bag

I had forgotten about these jeans for quite some time and they had gotten lost in the abyss of my closet. I can't even remember the last time I wore them but whenever I did I sure did do a number on them. They had a decent amount of dirt on both sides of them that I, of course, didn't notice until after I had left the house.  All white/neutral outfits are never a good situation for me but I do love them so very much!

Ily Couture Cardigan // Skargorn Tee // Madewell Jeans // J.Crew Loafers // Madewell Sunnies // c/o Rakani Watch  // c/o Color By Amber Bracelet

Nine times out of ten when I'm getting ready, the clothes go on and then it's bracelet time, and as you know, I don't generally shy away from stacking them on.  It just feels right when I hear the jingle jangle of them clanking together.  This Color By Amber cuff was the perfect complement to the other bracelets I was wearing.  Plus, I didn't have to think of any others to wear with it since it's such a statement, and I always love that!

I wore this simple outfit last week to my nephew's VIP day since it was just a casual morning at his school.  He got to take me around his classroom and show me what he has been up to this year.  I saw all of his paintings and drawings around the classroom and let me tell you, this kid is quite the artist. There was one in particular I immediately envisioned hanging in my house so I asked him if I could have it. He almost agreed but the money-hungry kid that he is decided to try and make five bucks off me.  I took the bait and agreed to pay him five dollars for it.  He then upped the price to twenty.  So much for being a VIP... Good thing I love that kid.

 Archipelago A.B. Home Collection Candle c/o

I don't know about you but you'll rarely find me at home without a candle burning.  I just love it when my house smells sweet, fresh and fruity and a candle can accomplish that!  I've been burning this Archipelago "Pear" candle non-stop lately.  Its subtle sweet scent is the perfect way to bring a little but of Spring's freshness indoors.  Plus it doesn't hurt that the simple frosted glass seamlessly fits into my decor.  Luckily it's a slow burning candle so it will last me through spring and summer until it's time to change up the scent. 

It doesn't stop at candles though, they have many other collections of home goods including diffusers, bath, body, and aromatherapy products.  Check it out online at Archipelago.

 Urban Outfitters Tee, Similar // H&M Shorts // Madewell Shoes // Madewell Bag // Ray-Ban Aviators

A couple things, I've been on the hunt for the perfect stripes tee.  Something that's not too fitted but not too slouchy, I still haven't found one but stumbled across this one in my husbands drawer and thought it would do for now.  Secondly, I tossed around the idea of buying (faux) leather shorts last year but never found a pair I was willing to take the plunge with.  I decided to pull the trigger with these ones because at less than $20 bucks I wouldn't be too upset if I never wore them, although I think I will be wearing them often!  

Oh, and yes, that is a curling iron burn on my neck.  You'd think I'd be smarter than that!

J.Crew Sweater, Similar // Anthropologie Shorts // Hudson Booties, Similar // Fossil Bag // c/o Rakani Watch

This week is turning out to be a busy one!  We welcomed another addition to the extended family this week with a little guy named Jonah.  So that's pretty much the most exciting thing going on around here (and it's pretty darn exciting).  Hope you're week is shaping up to be a good one too!

Don't you just love pulling out your summer brights?
