We are in Captiva Island, Florida this week with my parents, enjoying a belated Spring Break!  The kids are having a blast and I am soaking up every precious second of warm weather I can!  I'm positive I need to live amongst palm trees again.  I miss them and this kind of weather.  It is good for the soul and makes everyone happy!  Throw in some room service and a pool and I'll be good to go (a girl can dream, right?)

Have a fabulous day!

What You'll Usually Catch Me Wearing...

Happy Monday loves! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  Today is all about honesty.  Brutal, fashion-centric honesty.  As much as I try to get dressed and put together on a daily basis, most days it just doesn't happen.  I usually squeeze in a workout first thing in the morning, followed by errands, work and all of the kids' activities.  I rarely have time to get myself together until well after dinner (judge away) so I have put more effort into making my workout gear take me through my entire day.  Sometimes it takes a change of shirt or shoes, or the addition of an accessory or two (plus some dry shampoo) to make my gym clothes feel a little more pulled together. 

 This outfit is one of my go-to's when it is warmer out.  I purchased these items over the last year, but all of them are currently still available.  I have worn this at least once a week for the last couple weeks and will probably be doing so... for the next few weeks.

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!
