Red Rain Jacket

April 30, 2012

We have been getting some rain lately hence the idiom April showers bring May flowers. The only good thing about rain is getting accessorize with rain boots, cute umbrellas and my red rain jacket.

I got this raincoat for Christmas years ago and it was one of those presents that I was thinking, "I can't believe someone just bought me a rain jacket" but I still use it all these years later.

Casual Stripes...

April 24, 2012

I was trying to run out the door in a hurry but I did snap a couple pictures of my outfit from yesterday. I am starting to have quite the collection of stripes in my closet.

Minty Fresh...

April 23, 2012

Mint green is the perfect color for spring so it's a good thing it is so popular this season. This pale, pastel shade is the new updated neutral but I played it safe and went with a chambray shirt (which is always a sure thing).

Pink, Black and White

April 19, 2012

Thanks for all the sweet comments about my sleepless night and bad mood yesterday! I slept much better last night as you can probably tell by my outfit...I added some color back to my wardrobe. 

Black is still the main color (such a hard habit to break) but at least I added hot pink, white and my blue necklace.  Baby steps...

Grey Undertones...

April 18, 2012

After a restless night where I woke up no less than 15 times (stupid allergies and sunburn) I woke up tired and in a really, really bad mood.  I couldn't even bring myself to dress in cheerful colors and let grey and black clothing reflect my mood.

Cool and Breezy...

April 17, 2012

Sunday I laid out for the first time and needless to say I got my first sunburn of the year as well! I was hurting so bad and when it was time to get dressed on Monday, I needed something that would not cling to my lobster skin.  I choose my maxi skirt and a flowy top from Old Navy and made it through the day relatively pain free. 

Go ahead and make fun of me (you can see my sunburn in some of the pics)

Nautical Stripes...

April 16, 2012

I did absolutely nothing this past weekend and I loved every minute of it. Sometimes we get so busy that's it is good to take a moment (or in my case a weekend) and just relax with loved ones, catch up on TV shows and stay in your pajamas for the entire day.

Is anyone else loving that Rock & Republic is now at Kohl's?  I bought these jeans and this sweater and have been wearing both like crazy.

Addison's 1st Birthday!!!

April 13, 2012

Over Easter weekend we celebrated my little niece, Addison Grayce, turning one year old. I seriously could not get over the cuteness and took soooooo many pictures of her party that my sister-in-law went above and beyond planning (it was princess themed) as well as Addison trying to open her gifts. I narrowed it down to some of my favorites but it was hard...real hard!

Easter Dress...

April 12, 2012

For Easter Sunday I wanted something colorful and bright and this dress was the perfect thing.  I can wear it to work and it is getting packed in my suitcase for our upcoming cruise (the fabric will not wrinkle). 

I took over 150 pictures while I was home with my family last weekend...I will post some of my favorites later this week!

Sweater Over A Dress..

April 9, 2012

When I have an item that fits too snug but I don't want to give it away just quite yet...I improvise.  In this case my Forever 21 dress is a tad tight in the bust area but fits great everywhere else so I decided to throw on a loose fitting sweater and problem solved. 

I can still get wear out of my dress without feeling guilty that it is just sitting in my closet collecting dust.

Forever 21 dress, Urban Outfitters heels, Rock & Republic sweater from Kohl's (click here to purchase), necklace, Earrings oldie but a goodie

Peter Pan Collars

April 6, 2012

I got this dress a couple of weeks ago and what sold me on it (besides it being orange and white-go vols) was the adorable Peter Pan collar. You would probably be able to see it more if I didn't have my cardigan over it but it is sleeveless and I wanted to be a bit more covered up at the office. 

Adam and I are headed home to my parents house for Easter weekend and my sister, her boyfriend and her roomie are all coming from school in Alabama.  This is the first time that the whole fam will be together since Christmas and I cannot wait to see everyone. 

 I hope everyone has a fabulous Easter holiday!!
