I have to admit, the little social media/blogging/full-time job break over the last week and a half was really nice, and much needed. While I write this blog because I love it and have a passion for it, sometimes disconnecting is completely necessary. We were

Seth and I got back late last week from a week of hiking, relaxing and drinking in Asheville, NC. We hiked the majority of the trip, but we stayed downtown (check out my ‘where to stay’ post here) and explored some new-to-us places as well. I’m going to be sharing a few posts later this week about our trip, but wanted to share this cozy, on-trend sweater before I jump into that content.

Happy FriYaY everyone! Sorry for the radio silence around here this week. Honestly, life got in the way. I’m certainly one of those people who is constantly working on that work/life balance, and this week work (aka my full time job) won. There was lots of coming home after the ‘9 to 5’ part and continuing to work this week. I don’t think anyone really works traditional hours anymore, certainly not me, so it’s something I’m constantly working on. Anyone else have this struggle?

Anyway, I hope you’re SO ready for the long weekend ahead! Pools are opening, Summer if officially here! It’s hard to believe we’re already at the end of May. Let’s get to it, shall we:

When life gives you lemons

you create the perfect Spring outfit! That’s totally how that goes, right? Maybe? I came across this pretty little blouse at TJ Maxx a month or so ago, and immediately thought of tons of ways to style it – like I have it here for Spring, with white shorts or jeans, or with a white or denim midi skirt. Generally when I’m shopping and find something I want to buy, I try to style it at least 3 ways with pieces I already have in my closet. If I can do that, then it’s usually coming home with me.

Ok ya’ll, I I fully realize the obsession is real. Blue and pink.. I can’t stop. BUT I had to share this perfect swing dress with my favorite blush blazer and another way to style these blush pink ankle tie heels. An outfit that’s equal parts comfortable and stylish? Sign me up.

Friday Faves: April 14, 2017

Another Friday is upon us! Do you have any plans for your Easter weekend? I’m going to be prepping for a long weekend to Michigan we’re taking next week AND I’m super excited because I’m getting a cut/color this weekend – MUCH overdue. Is it just me, or do you also always wait until you’re in desperate need until you realize you need to get in to your hair guru? Bueller, Bueller? I digress…

Per usual, here’s what I’m loving this week:

What to wear to: Easter

At the risk of sounding like a broken record.. can you believe we’re already to Easter? I feel like I blinked and we went from NYE to mid-April. This year is going by SO fast.

Aaaanyway, since Easter is in just a few days, I wanted to share a little outfit inspo for what to wear on Easter Sunday. No, you’re not having deja vu, I shared this skirt last year for Easter, too. Can you blame me, though? It’s pretty perfect.

I updated it this year by pairing it with a nautical on-trend off-shoulder boat tee and everyone’s favorite heeled sandals (I have them in three colors!). Weather is inevitably all over the place this time of year, with chilly mornings and warm (and sometimes hot) afternoons. I’ll be opting for a look that keeps me covered, but still Spring-y.
