I just love this dress.  The color, the neckline, the style,  it is the perfect effortless summer dress.  Love it so much it will be arriving at my doorstep tomorrow.


I like to treat myself to one new pair of Tory Burch shoes each year and this is my pick for the summer.  The black is so classic but I am really leaning towards the yellow.


I am smitten with pink for Summer and this necklace is the perfect shade.  It would go with everything!  Best part it is only $36!


I bought a case of this wine for Sterling’s birthday party that we never got to use because the stomach bug hit us hard.  Anyways lucky for us, because Matt and I have been enjoying it, every night the past week.  It is a great wine and only $6.99 at Total Wine.  Go buy some today, I promise you won’t regret it!  I am actually off today to stock up on more!



This blouse comes in 3 fabulous colors and I can’t decide which I love more.  It is such a great price, only $59 plus you can get additional 10% off with code TUESDAYS today.


I am  pretty sure I am going to order this shower curtain for our hall bathroom.  Let me tell you cute shower curtains are hard to come by.  I have looked a million places and this is the forerunner so far.   I love the look.


I have wanted a set of cheese markers forever.  I love a cheese tray and entertain with one often.  These are so cute and would be a really great hostess gift as well!


I found this Nest Candle at TJMaxx last week and greedily snatched her up.  I could not believe my luck.  It smells amazing, so amazing that I want to order several more to have on hand.  I light a candle almost everyday in our house.  I think they make stellar gifts too.  This one smells really fresh.

    The Cloud Break Chardonnay is also really yummy! Just tried it from Total Wine! I will have to try the Sav Blanc.

    is that the wine I downed last week at your house? obviously i thought it was delish!! Now I want that blouse, and can not believe you found a Nest at TjMaxx….which one?

  3. Those shower curtains are gorgeous. And the yellow sandals are fab, I bet they would almost act as neutral with summer clothes.

  4. i can't believe your TJ has Nest. I just got the Nest Bamboo candle last week at NM and paid 32 dollars!!!! I've also heard of someone finding Diptyque candles at their TJ. I am going to have to dig and search at mine this week.

  5. That shower curtain is amazing. I might need that as well! Great round up my friend!

  6. Ok I am in love with everything here. The blouses, the shower curtains. And who doesn't need another white wine to add to the list?

  7. Natalie- Our taste is SO similar. If you lived in this area we would definitely be shopping buddies and friends! : ) The dress is adorable for summer. I was going to order the TB Selma sandals in navy, but may reconsider for those yellow beauties! That blouse is perfection, and the price even better. Loving soft pink pops in jewelry right now, too. Go for the shower curtain-the color and subtle pattern are winners. May have to make the cheese marker set mine, as well. They would be great for entertaining.

  8. I saw that dress too and loved so much. It'll be gorgeous on you.

  9. I'ev been stalking that dress. Its adorable!

  10. I love the blush color for spring. So purty! I've been dying for wine markers too. Those are good ones. Sometimes they have weird cheeses that I would never serve. Loving that shower curtain too!

    Cheese is my favorite! Haha..Those servers are adorable…Now you just need that blouse, that wine, those cheese servers and you are ready for an awesome wine and cheese party. šŸ™‚

    Total score on the candle. I have had some success with shower curtains at Urban.

  13. The shower curtain is perfect!! I want one. And i loved the piped blouse, so cute with white pants and wedges this Spring!

    You always find the best things at TJMaxx! Question regarding the Tinley Road blouse – how the heck do you get those type of sleeves to stay rolled up?!? It really irks me when they fall down every 10 minutes!

  15. Love the cheese markers! too cute!

  16. Love everything! Definitely have to try the wine and going to check out Serena and Lily for the shower curtain now!

  17. Love the dress and blouse! And you really DO find the best stuff at TJMaxx. We got one late last year and they NEVER have great stuff like what you find! Wah wahh!

  18. That dress definitely says summer. I'm so ready for warm days to be here already to wear breezy dresses like that!

  19. I wish those curtains came in more colors, love them!

    that tinley road top is amazing – it is literally calling my name…. taylor.


  21. Great picks! I love the TB sandals and can't believe you found a Nest candle at TJMaxx. They literally are the best candles!

  22. I'm REALLY hoping to add my first pair of Tory shoes to my wardrobe this summer!


  23. Well, the 3-minute miracle and suave Moroccan oil are new faves of mine…so I guess I'll buy whatever you tell me to now!

  24. Lili says:

    wow – Nest candles in TJ MAxx? lucky girl!

  25. I just scrowled through this post five times because I kept forgetting which one was my favorite. That blouse, those cheese tags, must try that wine, love the dress – everything. xoxo

  26. that dress is pretty much perfection. i love a blouse in every way and this one is a must have.
    my cetaphil moisturizer came in and i love it! it is, well, so moisturizing! so thanks for saving me $50.
    i got an awesome shower curtain at Urban, originally $90 and marked down to $10!

  27. Oooh, I love that silk blouse..especially the black and cream one!
