Want to know what's on my radar in a big way these days?  Pineapples.  Yes, pineapples.  I had a ceramic pineapple that moved from California to Pennsylvania to New Jersey, then again only to be broken my our vacuum cleaner hitting the piece of furniture it sat in.  So much sadness.  I tried to hunt down something similar with no luck, BUT I found some seriously fun pineapple goodies! I don't think I would turn down a single item of clothing I came across with pineapples on it or any pineapple-centric house ware.

I was lucky enough to snag a pineapple dish from the Lilly pandemonium at Target and it is true love!  

Speaking of Lilly for Target....

Yes, that Facebook snippet is from my loving husband.  He loves pineapples too, whether he knows it or not!

Have a fabulous day!

I Survived Lilly for Target

... but no, for real, I did.  That was quite possibly the most intense experience of my life and I have had a couple babies among other things.  It was definitely an adrenaline rush and a once in a lifetime experience.  While I am happy with the things I was able to grab and bring home (most for Avery!), I was more disappointed in how people were behaving.  I think the best part may have been getting to spend time catching up with one of my favorite people and meeting someone fabulous in line (more on that to come!) 

 I am very happy that I was able to grab the last one of this dress in my size.  While it isn't the same quality as true Lilly, it is fun and easy to wear and it makes me happy to see it in my closet.  The best part is that it works dressed up (see heels) or casual (see Jack Rogers.) If you see anything else in a similar shape (doesn't have to be Lilly!) send it my way prettttty please!

I also scored the jumpsuit in the same pattern.  Should I keep it?  

Have a fabulous day babes!

Saks Friends and Family Sale

Is it just me or has it been sale crazy lately?! My wallet is not happy with me, but my closet is very happy with the deals!  The Saks Friends and Family sale started and it is going FAST! Things are selling out very quickly, especially on closet staples.  Use code FRNFAM.  

Don't forget to shop before things sell out!  The sale ends next week, but many items are already gone, so I recommend shopping early!  The code is FRNFAM.

Happy shopping!

The Perfect Top

I want to thank all of you for the sweetest comments yesterday.  I took a deep breath and smiled a lot because you all made me so happy and I'm so lucky you take the time to pop by here!

Today, I'm featuring a J.Crew sleeveless tank that I just got, and is now on crazy sale (plus an extra 30% off!)  It's ridiculously comfortable and looks so pulled together for such a comfortable shirt.  It's hard for me to say no to any sort of peplum or pleated bottom, and it was love at first sight.  I'm trying to think of how to best pair it with shorts, but for now, it is like it was made for white jeans.

Shirt || J.Crew (on sale + 30% off!)
Shoes || Jessica Simpson via Nordstrom
Jeans || Rag and Bone The Skinny (on sale!)
Bag || Clare V.
Earrings || BaubleBar 
Ring || David Yurman

Have a fabulous day beauties!

Blogging + Giveaway

Happy Monday babes! It's a day full of thoughts today...  After letting a lot of things pile up on my plate lately, and letting myself get overwhelmed, I decided to take this past weekend off as much as possible and take some time to re-evaluate.  I have worked from home since Avery was born and commit a significant amount of time to this blog as part of that.  I started writing it almost five years ago (note: do not scroll back to read all posts.  I am evolving!)  I love blogging.  It makes me happy, it helps me keep my sanity and an identity I felt like I was losing after having children.   I'm going to make this into a little bit of an outline...

Things I Love
  • Fashion
  • Cooking
  • Wine
  • Shopping
  • Interiors
  • Fitness/Health
Fashion and shopping are my true loves.  Food and wine definitely rank high up there as well.  Working out, healthy eating and living, and attempting to diet are all part of my daily life.  I don't want to write posts just to post them.  I want to write posts that I whole heartedly believe are worthy of your reading and being great content.  I don't want this to fall into the category of "work."  The work I do is very separate and distinct from this.  This is where I need YOUR help!  Please feel free to give me any and all feedback on what you enjoy reading (and a big THANK YOU for doing that in the first place!)

I want Pink and Fabulous to be a happy, bright space that makes both me and YOU happy, so let's talk!

Ok, babes, tell me what you want to read, what you like to read.  After seeing Amanda's blog revamp (it's fabulous!) I feel extra inspired to research Wordpress more.  Who uses it and loves it and why?  

As we're approaching bathing suit season (for some of us it's already here), I've been amping up my workouts and noticed it would be nice to have some fresh workout gear for the season. So, I teamed up with some of my bloggy favs to giveaway at $200 gift card to Lululemon. We all know their clothes are not cheap, so the lucky winner can go on a shopping spree on us to get a jump start on their workout wardrobe for the warmer months. Good luck!

Are you sick of all of my Monday questions? I know I am a little all over the place, but it is a day where I needed to chat with my babes and let the thoughts flow.  I truly value your thoughts and input. I hope your day is fabulous!

Let's call it a mental health day/re-grouping day/day to step away.  None of that is true.  This week has kicked my ass and I haven't even had time to get groceries to feed my family, am extremely behind at work, stretched way too thin on every front and need to vent with my friends over some wine.  I think you're all my friends so let's toast to Friday and a day to know when to table somethings and re-prioritize, if you shall.  


Have a fabulous weekend!
