Vince tees are my favorite.  This gray tee would be a staple in any closet.   You could layer it for winter or it is lightweight enough for Summer.   Love the pintuck detail.

Am I the only one ready for warmer temps and summer dressing?  I love this maxi from Greylin.  It would be perfect now with a leather jacket  or sweater as seen below and then alone for summer.

I have lusted after these beautiful plates forever.  They are finally on sale (still expensive though) but I think they would be something you would use all the time when entertaining.  And how gorgeous would the green be at Christmas??  An investment but just think I have had the same dishes for almost 7 years now, you would get your moneys worth for sure.


While I patiently wait and save to buy my Nepresso, I have been using my Aerolatte Frother.  I had forgotten I had bought this because I didn’t drink much coffee while I was pregnant but I busted it out this weekend and I have been enjoying the perfect Cappuccino every morning.  It honestly makes getting up so early not so bad to know I can have a tasty cappuccino.  This little handheld device is only $16 totally worth it!


I am a sucker for stripped dresses and tee shirt dresses.  This fits the bill plus I love the T by Alexander Wang line. It also comes in a Mintblack color combo that I really love.

I just got my first Chaser tee and I am obsessed with it.  You know those super soft worn in feeling tee shirts?  Well that is just want these feel like.  They are a looser fit and not clingy which I love.  I have a solid color one but really want this Baseball Tee for the Summer.

There is nothing I love more than a good white blouse.  It can go with anything and always looks classy.  This is the perfect Spring/Summer blouse.

I have really been into cute napkins lately, they make entertaining and setting the table so much more fun.   These are currently on sale 50% off and I love them.  Great for a Summer Outdoor Party!

I have been seeing alot of Tortoise in the spring/summer trends forecast.  I love these earrings and the price ($34) even better.   They would go with everything.  The tortoise bracelets are already sold out so snag these earrings before they do too!

I love this Summer spin on the D’Orsay flats.  These come in camel and black and would go with everything!  I am partial to the camel color it would look so good paired with white skinny jeans or white shorts!

  1. It's hard to even think about maxi dresses with it being 21 degrees right now! I love that striped dress. I'm a sucker for anything stripes. Those flats are such a cute alternative to typical sandals.

  2. Great list! I like the baseball tee and it's on sale! The maxi dress is beautiful! I like how they layered the long sleeve on top of it.

    Frothers are the best! They make my at-home cup of joe so much better. I'm also obsessed with that T by Alexander Wang striped dress!

    Love the maxi and the white blouse, leaning more boho chic for spring summer it seems…i just recently rediscoveed my frother too! Makes such the difference! Hope you and the two kiddos are getting into a nice routine!

    OK as much as I enjoy following the blog, I say this meant as politely as possible- something that has stripes on it is Striped….not stripped, as that means that something has had everything taken off.

    Great list! I secretly want a Nespresso as well. And I love that maxi dress. Darn you!:) Now I want to head over to Piperlime and treat myself.

  13. Lexi says:

    What nespresso are you wanting? I want one too but haven't studied them enough to know which one is the best. I'm the only one who drinks coffee in my house so my husband really doesn't understand the need for such an appliance…. I'm working hard to convince him though!

  15. Oh those malachite places…amazing! I need them to go on SALE even more before I can afford them! haha and I love those tortoise earrings!

  16. I don't think I'm quite ready for warmer weather, BUT, that fab maxi has me reconsidering things…

    Love the ikat napkins too!
