Where: to a kiddo’s birthday party
Why: I really like these shorts. They’re flowy. They’re high waisted. That combination makes my legs look great even if I’m wearing flats. And they’re covered in a cute polka dot pattern. What’s not to love? When I got them I knew I wanted to pair them with another bright color — and this shirt is so neon my camera can’t figure out what to do with it. It was just the combination I needed for a kid’s birthday party!
This past weekend Ross and I met his parents in Elkhart Lake to celebrate Mother’s Day. It’s the first time we’ve been there since we got married there in October and it was nice to visit and spend some time together. I recently tried painting my matte top coat over my favorite nude polish and oh do I love it — I don’t want to ever take it off.New buds on a tree are popping up every where by our apartment and I love it so. Thankful for the visual reminder that winter has come and gone.
What are you thankful for this week?

This time of year it’s basically necessary to have an umbrella in my car because you never know when a little rain shower is going to pick up. And no one likes to have to run into the store awkwardly only to freeze because they’re wet in the air conditioning. Also, if it happens to pour on a perfect photo opportunity like your wedding day, you might want an option other than your husband’s “Ohio Optometric Association” umbrella. Like that insanely cool clear one up there. And that floral one would make a rainy day so much cheerier!
Rachael Ruddick’s East West Shopper is a beautiful tan tote made of gorgeous calfskin — but it’s $422.00 price tag is a little hefty for me when it comes to a tote bag. I don’t use them that often, and when I do, it’s to lug heavy things or go to the beach — not the kind of stress I want to put on such an investment piece. Enter H&M’s bag. Same color, same shape, much cheaper — the kind of bag I wouldn’t feel bad about getting a little wet by the pool!

Where: on my day off
Why: There’s that time, where it’s not really warm and it’s not really cold and you don’t really know what to put on your body when you get up in the morning. This was my solution for that — I was sick of my jeans so I grabbed these shorts and decided to get one more wear out of this sweater before it goes away for the summer. It kept me exactly as warm as I needed to be while running errands!
