Hip hip hooray we made it to Friday!  It was really nice to be home this week, and I loved soaking up some extra time with Hudson after spending our first week away from him last week.  I even kept him all to myself on Monday, despite the work I needed to do.  I won’t deny, waking up on my own time with no baby monitor was some kind of refreshing.  However did I talk about Hudson all day long, watch videos of him and watch him sleep and wake up from the Miku monitor every day of vacation?  Yes.

I am excited to go to Scott’s Antique Markets for the first time this weekend with my sister and sister-in-law.  I don’t think any of us have ever been, and it’s going to be an experience.  I have only heard amazing things.  I can’t wait to see what it’s like.  My SIL advised us to arrive with list of items you’re on the hunt for because she’s been told it can get overwhelming.  GREAT advice, and so far I have… one thing on my list.  We’ll see how many coffees we need throughout the day!

In my most exciting news, this is our last week with our current front doors.  We are getting long awaited front doors next week, and I am so excited!  I knew when we bought this house that there were a few updates we would need to do, one being our master bathroom (reveal coming Monday – finally!) and another being replacing our existing front door for both functionality and appearance.  So I will be sharing before and afters for both.  I think it’s going to be pretty significant, and I can’t wait to see these door knobs installed.  I love a good before and after!

I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend and Mother’s Day!  Thank you so much for reading – XO –

Gigi Hadid’s Spicy Vodka Pasta

I know you’ve probably heard about this pasta before, but I have been eating this probably a little too often lately, and I wanted to share how I make it! Apparently supermodel Gigi Hadid shared her recipe for spicy vodka pasta on Instagram Stories last year, and it’s been all over the internet since.  And it is crazy easy and wildly delicious.  You could add a protein or a green side salad, but we usually just toast some garlic bread and call it a weekday dinner. I usually double the…

I always feel like a piece of jewelry like this bracelet, these “queen bee” earrings (adorable) or this $14 designer-inspired ring is always a winning choice.  Along with something elevated for the kitchen like my favorite pan (on sale! more about it here and here) or this super chic wine and champagne chiller, which are little moments of glam in the home.  I’ve also had my eye…

Blue Wrap Dress Under $50

When I saw this dress on Amazon, I had to know if it was as cute and comfortable as it looked online. And an update: it is.  It comes in two colors, it’s under $45 and super soft.  I actually plan  on buying the camel as well now that I know that it’s such a great grab!  I paired it with this croissant bag and these earrings, also conveniently from Amazon. The reviews enticed me to order a size down from my usual size, and I would agree that’s the…

Sheer Mesh Heels

Let me just show you one of the prettiest pairs of pumps in my closet.  These Sarah Flint Parker 85 sheer mesh heels make a statement on their own, but I have some fun facts to back up their fabulousness. They are a 3.3″ heel which feels sassy but still comfortable for several hours of wear.  Like all Sarah Flint heels and pumps, they come with anatomical arch support and 6mm of extra footbed padding.  You’ve gotta love womens shoes designed by a woman, am I right?  They’re handcrafted in…

Pearl-Embellished Sandals and Sneakers

This isn’t the first time I have told you guys that my go-to shoe preference has really changed over the past year and a half.  If I’m really being honest, it probably started in San Francisco with all of the hills and walking everywhere.  Followed by having an itty-bitty baby and of course covid flipping all of our worlds upside down.  All of this leading to prioritizing stylish flats over heels.  And much to my delight, I discovered that there are some seriously beautiful options out there, especially at Neiman…

Ivory Lace Flutter Sleeve Dress

This dress definitely has some similar vibes to this dress, but I feel like this feels more suited for work, church or business meetings.  It has some stronger boss lady energy! I love pairing linen blazers with denim or white pants, but they can also be a great layering piece with dresses.  If you have a corporate job, they can also make a feminine dress feel more business appropriate. You can see other ways I paired blazers with dresses here, here and here. dress + blazer, rented from The Lauren…
