Easter outfit #2

Happy April Fools Day! 

There are a lot of things I love about spring. The weather, the holidays, but most of all the floral prints. I know it is not a trend some people are fond of. But I can't get enough of floral prints. They are so fun to mix prints, dress up and down, and contrast the colors. They just make me happy! Don't floral prints just scream happiness? 

So as much as I dig on floral prints, I dig on stripes as well. I especially dig on the fact you can pair the two together. I love stripes and floral prints together. I have seen it done in so many different ways. I just think it is fresh and fun to mix patterns. And to top it off I added a really fun strappy heel. These heels go with this Kenneth Cole Reaction bag perfectly. It was almost as if they were meant to be ;). 

How do you like to style floral prints?

Outfit Disclaimer: The skirt sizes run big in this print so size down! Mine is a medium and it is still pretty big.

Easter Outfit Idea #1

If your anything like my family Easter is a whole day adventure. Easter egg hunts, BBQ's and candy. I love watching the little kids run around and gather their eggs. I am so excited for Aria to go egg hunting. Holidays are going to be a little more fun now. Kids always make things more exciting.

This outfit is for a casual BBQ. It's bright and colorful. Casual but fun. I like to tone down colorful outfits with a neutral cardigan or blazer. Of course I will be running around with Aria gathering eggs so I grabbed a gladiator sandal that would allow me to run. A cute wedge sandal would be cute with this outfit as well. Spring is a time to bring out the colors. Mix pastels. Have fun with colors!

How do you like to mix pastels?

Down to Earth

My family and I have been trying go green this year. That means natural remedies, organic food, and using less paper. The less chemicals in our lives the better. I have another post on healthy recipes coming soon! 

April is Earth Month. Also the perfect time to get your gardens ready to grow those delicious vegetables. We celebrate earth month by planting tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots. Nothing is more organic than your own garden! 

Are you looking for ways to go green? Here are some tips to get you started. 




Start at the sink. Use a toothpaste that is made with no artificial flavors, colors, fragrances or preservatives. Tom's of Maine packaging is recyclable and of course they don't test on animals. They also donate 10% of their profits to environmental and human goodness.





Using a natural deodorant not only is great for the environment, it is great for your arm pits. It is also aluminum free for those like me who have extremely sensitive skin. 



We go shopping a lot! So we use those reusable totes. Not only are they better for the environment,  a lot of places give you discounts for using your own bags. 



 Grow your own vegetables. They are delicious and right in your own back yard. 



Recycle your newspaper. There are 63 million newspapers printed a day. About 69% of them are just thrown away. Recycling the Sunday paper could save half a million trees a week.

Take shorter showers. Every two minutes you cut from your shower you can conserve more than ten gallons of water.

Buy Local. It is great for the environment and economy.

Pay bills online. I find it easier to pay my bills online. It is easier to track, and saves on paper. If everyone paid their bills online we could save over 1.7 billion pounds of waste.

Car Pool when possible. Not only is it good for the environment but it's good on your wallet.

Go to a car wash. It saves on water, your energy and time.



How do you celebrate Earth Week? What tips do you have to go green?

Pink

I have always loved Victoria Secret. One of my favorite stores to browse. Their body sprays are absolutely delicious! Love Spell will forever be my favorite scent. As well as Sweet Temptation. 

Their lounge wear line, Pink, is so stinking cute. So comfortable as well. I got a gift card from my hubby and I had to snag this sweater. It is big and comfortable and perfect to hang out around the house in. I had to pick up my mom from the airport so I was just in comfort mode. Pink has so many cute pieces. I need to snag some of the sweat pants they have. Seriously go browse their selection you will not be disappointed. 

Not to mention this is my all time favorite color combination. Coral and mint. I will never get sick of these two colors together.

Spring Neutrals

Spring. One of the best seasons. That means winter is behind us!

I was on my way to a book party in this outfit so I wanted something cute but casual. I always have a cardigan with me. I get hot and cold at random times of the day. I can just take the sweater on and off to suit my temperature. I am not huge on white jeans. I think they can be cute if styled a certain way. I love this pop of color to the outfit. It brings the white jeans, and the grey cardigan a little more excitement.

Hope you all enjoy!

Easter Baskets for Infants



I love Easter. Our tradition always included hiding our baskets full of goodies around the house. A tradition I would like to pass to my daughter. In shopping for the basket goodies I had a rough time. I didn't want candy or a lot of toys. Then it hit me. I wanted to stuff her basket with books. I recently came across Usborne books and I fell in love with them. They are cute, inexpensive and for every age. Of course I added a Disney movie and a couple outfits. But I mainly wanted to give her books.

Whats in the basket:

-Baby's First Flashcards: Toys
-That's not my Mermaid
-Monster Activity Pack
-The Littlest Bunny in Utah
- Build A Town Sticker Book
- A Squirrels Tale
- There's a Mouse About the House
- Tale of Peter the Rabbit (similar)
- Disney Princess and the Frog
-Blue Romper
-Yellow Romper

Relax

I don't know about you guys but I could kiss whoever invented boyfriend jeans, right on the lips. They are seriously the best thing for busy moms. And they don't look like a "mom jean". I can be comfortable and do things around the house. I can then slip on a blazer and heels and go out. They are so versatile. I love the distressed detail as well as the acid wash detail. I think it just gives the jeans a little more..sass.

Blazers..where would I be without them? You can dress anything up with a blazer. You know me I have to have one in every color. Pink is next on the blazer list. Seriously though how do you live without them?

Let's take a moment to appreciate these shoes. Another Charolette Russe find. I saw these and I did the girlish squeal we all do when we see something incredibly cute. I knew they had to be mine. I am so excited to have these suckers in my closet. I look forward to annoying you all with how much I will be wearing them :)
