This post is sponsored by buybuy BABY. All opinions are my own. 

Having a baby is a wonderful, beautiful experience. But in real life, preparing for said experience isn't the easiest. There's the months of morning sickness, aches, sleepless nights and some of the strangest symptoms you've ever imagined. To top off all of that, you have to figure out what your baby actually needs ahead of time and put it all on the registry for friends and family. Yeah, it's overwhelming.

4 Reasons Why Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa Might Be For You

 Ah, Mexico. You were a dream. After a few days back in the city I'm ready to book my next trip and revisit our few days in the sun.

In Tulum with Miraclesuit

Growing up in Florida, you better believe that I lived in bathing suits. As a kid, it wasn't an outfit until a bathing suit was included in my look. It's true, I lived in those things. If I couldn't wear a bathing suit under my outfit it wasn't happening. Believe me when I say my mom and I threw down many a time about my swimsuit additions - Yes, I believed that a red striped bathing suit was acceptable birthday party attire. That said, you could say that I love swimwear, even as I enter my 30's with three kids in tow.

Two Ways To Wear Midi Dresses for Spring

I'm back from Tulum and I brought a ton of color with me! Stay tuned I have some festive posts heading your way, so keep an eye out for those. 

As for today's post with my favorite, Jackie, we're talking midi lengths. I love a good midi length, it works on all shapes and sizes and contrary to some beliefs it can actually make us shorter gals look a little bit taller! So no, it's not just for the ladies with length it actually works great on us petite gals. I personally like to show a little more skin on top when it comes to styling longer skirts, for instance this dress has an off the shoulder neckline. As for footwear, I totally love them with sneakers but I do love a good heel to give me a few more inches - plus it looks great with a tiny ankle popping out from the skirt. This dress is giving me all sorts of happy thoughts especially with Mexico still in mind. How fabulous are those sleeves and the ruffled hemline - summer perfection. Did I mention it's under $40? Another Target win! It also comes in red gingham. 

As for Jackie, she decided to make a brilliant statement with this vibrant hue of pink and leather accessories. I love the classic shape paired with that huge pop of color. It looks great with or without the jacket...

Head over and check out Jackie's post, she's also rounding up her favorite Midi dresses under $50...

Spring Staple under $100: Slip-On Mules

You might remember my day of apple picking with Koolaburra this past fall, here. Well, it's spring and I'm swapping my cozy boots in favor of something a little lighter. Meet the Raychel slip-on Mule. I mean, can you even with this blush hue and perforation detail? Me either. The second I saw them on the site "I was like what other options"? Kidding. I love the updated nod to this throwback style - the super soft suede, cushy sole and chunky heel is giving me all sorts of life right now - especially with spring weather starting to bloom. Squee. 

For under $80, they're the perfect staple for adding a little pep in your step as you transition your wardrobe from the gross winter to the cheerful spring without breaking the bank. Did I mention that blush hue? It also comes in black and tan so there are some other neutral options.

As far a styling goes, I'm loving the mule trend with cropped jeans. It's just enough skin to elongate without going 'full sandal'. They also look great with shorts, dresses and skirts. Stay tuned for other styling options because they're going to be getting a lot of wear as the season moves along. Hint: I'm wearing them EVERYWHERE. 

I wanted to play with colors that helped the blush tone pop and this dress did just that with the muted pinks, yellow and blues. I couldn't resist layering my dress over light-wash distressed cropped jeans- because it's currently one of my favorite ways to go when the temperatures are under 65˚degrees. They're just long short enough to showcase my ankle and let the blush mules that adorn my feet make a statement.

For accessories I stayed in theme with this season's must-haves and brought my ring handle bag out. It adds a little something extra without stealing the thunder from my mules.

Two Creative Ways To Layer For Spring

Ok, layering isn't a new thing especially in these parts but let's be real we're constantly doing it regardless of the weather. It's only natural, so for this week's post with Jackie, we're talking creative ways to layer our look to get the most out of you spring wardrobe.

Wear Your Favorite Dress Over Jeans

Ok, it's been raining like crazy and the only sensible thing to do is embrace it with the right footwear. I AM OBSESSED with these BOOTS. I was weary of the color at first but after wearing them a few times with a few pieces I was sold on them. Good luck getting them off my feet on rainy (and even not-so-rainy) days. My most recent pairing might just be my favorite. We already know I'm currently loving dresses over jeans and I think the layering looks even better with the addition of a suede coat and my Melissa rain boots. I wore this exact variation of this outfit twice last week before shooting it and I might just add a couple more wears before moving on to the next outfit of the moment. 

Spring Style: Shades of Blue

Ok, it's not a huge secret as to what color I'm currently favoring so this week Jackie and I decided to dedicate this week's post to my current color crush, blue. It's the perfect color to perk up your spring wardrobe without going too bright. I personally love to use it across the board - bright royal maxis, navy rompers and of course, the never fail, denim. 

For this week's post I went with a navy floral kimono sleeved mini dress with my Aerosoles navy boots. I'm all about stacking colors for (nearly) monochromatic looks. I added the green ring handled bag to add some contrast and some white fringe earrings to make the white details in the dress pop This dress would be great with gladiator sandals once it's weather appropriate. 

Jackie went a different but equally amazing route, I mean can we please talk about the sleeves on that top. SWOON. That paired with her light denim mom jeans and pink tassel earrings we have a serious match. I might be copying this in the near future...

Note: We're also showing a lot of love for another spring trend, fringe. My belt, tassel earring and tassel detailed boots + Jackie's earrings are super fun and easy ways to play with fringe this season...
