Five Favorites: Spring Wardrobe

It has been such a long cold winter this year for many of us, I know I am not alone when I say...Bring on the Sunshine! The trees and flowers are beginning to bud and bloom and the warmer temperatures have made a brief appearance.
Its time to reorganize the closets and put away the heavy sweaters.  I am anxious to wear brighter colors and sandals to show off a pedicure. Here are five things that I am adding to my Spring wardrobe.

Hunter Wellies.  My wellies need replacing.  These are on the list!
J.Crew Chambray button up.  Love the heart shaped pocket.
Quicksilver Tunic.  First spotted on Sara Jane's blog.  Such a versatile piece.
EmersonMade. Trench.  I will take one of everything from this fabulous line!  Made in the U.S.A.
Leather Wedge.  These will get plenty of wear.  Now I need that pedicure.

Happy Monday.

Happy St. Patrick's Day


This really sums up my mornings. 
It started as a rare indulgence of an iced frothy coffee-like creation and over the past few years (and more likely, two tiny ones) I have become addicted to a large latte.  Nearly every morning I think I need one.  I'm sure it is a little trick my mind plays one me, but it works.  I feel that I am magically refreshed and ready for the day, even if I've had very little sleep!  We visit the same local coffee house and they know our names.  They knew our kids names first and they love it there. 
We love it there.  Maybe a little too much. 

Have a Happy and Safe St. Patrick's Day.

Seeing the chevron rug in sweet baby Vivi Charles' nursery inspired me. 
Here are some fun ways to bring chevron into your day. 
There are so many great finds out there right now.

Sweet Nursery

This nursery is just perfection.  The colors. That rug.  And I love her daughters name. Love it all.
Joni does a fabulous job of creating amazing style boards for baby and kids rooms.
Go ahead, take a look but be prepared to stay for a while!

The devastation in Japan is unimaginable.   Let us keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

Birthday Breakfast

We have a little tradition in our house for birthdays.  Donuts for breakfast...mmmmm.
The kids think this is fantastic and I have to agree.
We buy the tiny ones.
Stack them on a plate.
Add candles.
And enjoy.
This morning was one of those mornings! Yay.

Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband and thank you for sharing your donut cake.

Mellow Yellow

Yellow makes me smile.  I think it may be the happiest of the colors.  Is it because the smiley face is yellow? who knows. I hope this makes you smile today. 

Lovely french doors say Welcome.

 It's a garden party. This is what I want my table setting to look like.


At bedtime I will walk up these stairs.

And sleep in this glorious bedroom.

crewcuts - cheerful and bright

This is such a fun collection.  J.Crew does a fabulous job of bringing their classic styles to the smaller set.  Bright colors and fun accessories for tots as young as 2.  My son already has several crewcuts pieces in his closet and I can't wait to add some to my daughter's.  With styling like this, how can I resist?
