Bring On The Brights

31 March 2011

 How does this yellow not brighten up your day? It's the perfect match for spring and blended well with my red lips and coral nails (and neutral ensemble). 

Who else is loving brights?

Wedged In

30 March 2011

I can't stay out of my Jovovich-Hawk for Target dresses for too long, I mean they're just so perfect for spring, pregnancy and comfort (though the polyester and I have some heat issues, if only it were as easy as turning the oven down a bit). Though over the weekend I realized the Polka Dot version is a little shorter than the poppies, leaving me to hang it up until this enormous 'easter egg' hatches. None the less, the poppies are in the now and I paired them with the $7 wedges I mentioned a couple weeks  ago, that I ended up giving to my mom instead of keeping them (which I borrowed for today's look).

To The Watering Hole

29 March 2011

After returning home from the beach yesterday we discovered our water heater happened to kick the bucket, leaving us well, without hot water. Which is fine and dandy because (it's 80-something degrees here and)  I use cold water for just about everything anyways, with the exception of showers, of course. Forcing us to go back out to the beach house for another night and take advantage of the 'water' there. So on the way out the door I threw this dress in a bag for breakfast with the in-laws and went out to take another relaxing day.

It seems this dress/bump combo resembles an easter egg! ;)

Golden Sun

28 March 2011

Over the weekend my husband and I got to take a mini break on the beach to relax and have some time to ourselves before baby no. 2 makes his way out (which should be any day now..eek!). Luckily the weather was perfect, the food was comforting and the view was gorgeous. As we were leaving this am I decided to take a few snaps of one of the dresses I lived in while we weren't on the beach, which you may remember from this post. And after taking your advice, I kept it and added a little color with a turquoise necklace I put together right before leaving for the weekend.

Spot The Steal - Steve Madden 'Snobbie'

27 March 2011

Last night while browsing GoJane.com for fabulous statement necklaces I noticed a vastly familiar glittered shoe that I recently spotted on a friend of mine, for a lot less. The shoe in question is a very good, cheaper alternative to the Steve Madden 'Snobbie' which runs for about $110. However, the GoJane version clocks in for under $30 making it a fabulous steal for the ladies on a budget.

Work In Progress

26 March 2011

 Being in mover's limbo is probably one of the most irritating situations one can be in, add pregnancy to that situation and it makes it much worse because pregnant women like to plan ahead. And since we had to halt our move until post pregnancy, I put off refurbishing some amazing vintage pieces until now. Here's a sneak peek at what I've been working on, and note it's still a work in progress...
The lamp still needs a fabulous lampshade and the hardware hasn't been put on the furniture yet, but I will say the chair and the mirror are my favorite pieces. I based the entire design on the print, that happened to be a vintage scarf. 
 Misc. candlesticks and a seemingly crooked "D" for David, I can't seem to find my "M"...
And a fabulous vintage toy box we re-painted (still needs the hardware and a base for the cushion) and added a fabulous cushion that matches the stripes on the chair perfectly! 
What do you think?

Have a fabulous weekend, XO

Carnivale

25 March 2011

 I can't remember the last time I attended a carnival, it seems like ages ago that I rode the rides, played the unbeatable games and of course, took part in the greasy, yet delicious food. Luckily I didn't have to wait much longer since I made my way to the carnival yesterday only to cruise the petting zoos and indulge in some ridiculously good elephant ears while people watching.

Flutterflies

 Since jeans have been missing all week due to my obsessions with skirts and dresses, I thought I'd bring them in with a print drop waist tunic and some heels, of course (which turned out to be a little small for 9 mos. pregnant me...oops). The pastel butterflies just get me even more in the mood for spring, though it's starting to feel a little more like summer now - or it could just be me since I'm experiencing hot flashes every 5 seconds. The 37 week mark hit early this week, so anytime now - and when I say anytime I'm hoping sooner than later...

Turquoise Braids

Being petite sometimes comes with its benefits, like checking out the 'girl's department' every now and then for age appropriate pieces like this amazing cotton dress. I'm especially fond of the braid detail on the neckline and the fact that the empire waist line is perfect for my 'baby bump'. Add some golden accents, a colorful bag, a neutral trench and we're ready for spring. 

Tell me, have you ever shopped the "Girl's Department"?

Spotted Boheme

22 March 2011

 With 70's fever in full swing, it's got me itching for a little more bohemia in my life and this Jovovich-Hawk for Target dress is the perfect fit. Adding a little fringe and a slouchy knit vest really brings the look to the table, though next time around I'll pass on the shoe choice being that their not so flattering on my 'larger' figure. Good thing I just snagged some DV wedges for Target on BOGO the other day! 

Which Jovovich-Hawk Dress are you a bigger fan of the Polka Dots or the Poppies?
