Thank you all for the great time out suggestions! I truly value everyone’s opinions and so appreciate all the advice. I will let you know how it goes! Here are my latest Obsessions this week!

I am pretty smitten with this ring. I am drawn to the pink because hello, I love me some pink but I am thinking I would probably wear the nude version more often.

This might quite possibly the perfect bedroom combo in my humble opinion. I love the idea of just wallpapering the one wall behind the bed. I am still lusting after a tufted headboard for our bedroom.

I have to admit I am not a huge fan of regular Tom’s. When I see other people wearing them I think they look cute but on me they just look plain stupid. I am however very excited about the new line of Tom’s Ballet Flats coming out this Spring. Since I am almost 5’10 I live in ballet flats. I have my eye on the leopard pair!

I am 100 percent on board with the neon trend this summer. I can’t wait to paint my nails this gorgeous Hot Pink shade by Essie!

In keeping with my hot pink love affair I picked up this Banana Republic Blouse last week. I love that they send you rewards and coupons all the time. I got this baby for practically nothing. Right now they are having 30 percent off everything with code NEWYOU. I think this top will be super cute with my skinny jeans and a cardigan til summer hits and then I will wear it with shorts.

It looks cute with my workout pants, right?

It also comes in a black version that is equally as cute.

    Oh my gosh I love all your obsessions! I think I might have to get that Banana top too. Very cute and would go perfectly with your neon nails.

  2. Always love your obsessions. I definitely think you need that ring! I love the headboard and wallpaper combination too, its perfect.

  3. I feel the same way about regular Toms…and am very excited to try the ballet flats. I think I want one in every color/pattern!

    LOVE the black version…may have to go get that today. I tried to comment the other day, but check out Love and Logic books on parenting – they are working wonders for my 4 year old. And I also like having a "plan" of how I am going to handle the situation – otherwise I slack off and then he doesn't get a consistent message.

    I love all your obsessions- especially the tufted headboards+pretty wall papers plus that beautiful ring! Dying!



  6. The ballet flat Toms are too cute! I need a pair asap! I also love that ring and shirt. Oh and the headboards are gorg too… So I guess Im just in love with it all!

  7. Girl I didn't know you are only 2 inches shorter than me. I thought you were itty bitty. I wear heels all the time! I love being a giant I guess? lol

  8. Loving those TOMS!!! Cannot wait for them to come out!

  9. I think I am going to get some Toms this spring. I think I want the org. Love those tops and the pink polish!!!!

  10. now those are some toms I maybe could think about buying…maybe! I also love that BR shirt. Haven't been in there in years, literally. Might need to stop in soon!

  11. I feel the same way about Tom's! I always love them on my friends, but feel like a nurse when they are on my feet…ballet flats are much more up my alley

  12. Taylor says:

    I love the wallpaper in the first picture! And I agree about Tom's – have never thought they were cute, but those flats are surprisingly adorable?! Great picks!

  13. Those rings are just gorgeous! I want one!

  14. megan says:

    I definitely think you would get more wear out of the nude ring..just pair it with your bright pink Essie nails! šŸ™‚

  15. Virginia says:

    I love all of your "obsessions", as always! I especially love that ring, in pink!! Gorgeous!

  16. Sara Mueller says:

    I am loving the Toms ballet flats.

  17. Jill says:

    I have that print of Toms but in the wedge. Guess Banana is finally putting out something cute!!

  18. I'm excited about the Toms ballet flats too! The regular look awful on me as well. I like them on Lilly b/c they tay on her feet, but they're ridic on me.

  19. Val says:

    I need to be wearing that nail polish and have those rings as well.

  20. I'm so excited about the new TOMS, I have a pair of the regular black ones and they are pretty comfortable. Matthew has a pair too, they are so cute!

  21. I love that ring in the pink!! I also love the third tufted headboard with that aqua and gold-ish wallpaer–gorgeous!

  22. As a frequent flats wearer myself, I can't wait for the Toms ballet flats to be released! I keep asking our local boutique who carries them about the release date and can't get an answer out of them. I think I want a pink pair, but the leopard is darling too!
