a week of yellow. chartreuse.

a week of yellow continues with chartreuse...a color that falls between yellow and green. its shades range from dull to shockingly bright which gives you many options depending on your comfort level with color. some people with fair skin feel like they can't wear yellow because it washes them out. chartreuse is a great alternative; because of its green tinge, it provides more contrast from the skin.

do you like brights? have you worn chartreuse?

a week of yellow. breezy top.

lately, spring has been creeping into my closet in the form of yellow. from pale shades to shocking chartreuse, you can't help but smile when wearing this cheery color. this week is all about this fun spring color, and i'm kicking it off with this easy breezy gauzy top from Patty's Closet.

what color are you sporting this spring?

a week of spring dressing. print mixing.

with mini-he's birthday festivities last week, i didn't have a chance to post this for a week of spring dressing. we always see tons of print mixing for spring. instead of the usual stripes and florals, i opted for polka dots and camouflage.

what print combos have you been rocking this spring?

a week of spring dressing. dark florals.

who says spring has to be all about the brights? if you tend to shy away from bright florals, take on spring with neutrals. remember, it's more important to feel comfortable and confident in what you're wearing, so go on and rock black this spring! i'm all about spring lips, tho...wearing creamy lip pencils 'toots' with a bit of 'shambolic' from LAQA & Co. if you prefer more shine, they just released four new lip lubes which have a high-gloss and lightly pigmented formula...perfect for summer when we tend to lighten up our makeup.

today is mini-he's birthday. of course, i was up all night making friggen cupcakes for his class, but i think they turned out alright despite the color printer malfunction. he's all about that minecraft, so these are supposed to be dirt/grass blocks in case ya didn't know. yeah, yeah, they're supposed to be dirt on the bottom, grass on the top, but this mama ain't got time for green frosting!

how do you feel about wearing black this spring?

a week of spring dressing. bright florals.

it's a week of spring dressing...brights, print mixing, and, of course, florals. it just wouldn't be right to let spring pass without rocking a bright spring dress. and even though i feel a little out of my element in it, i'm hoping these little black details help tone it down a bit.

we recently got our first anthropologie store, and while i was only passing thru this time, i want to go back and get evvvrything in their home sections. do you have an anthropologie near you?

what trends do you associate with spring fashion?

messy hair.

this tee states the story of my life lately. i'm totally embracing the messy hair. i haven't had the time or energy to do my hair, thus the trusty top knot. i think mini-she agreed because she didn't hesitate to buy me this shirt. good news? it's friday!

what are you embracing these days?


the layered tank.

hope everyone enjoyed their easter weekend. it was non-stop eating and drinking for me. i spent some QT with the minis at the beach, caught up with friends over drinks, and ate and ate with the family on easter. i finally picked up another piece of my home office - the desk. geez, it's been over a year since i bought the rug! it's progress. next up...the chair. 

i also managed to stop by Patty's Closet this weekend. they are stocked with fun spring pieces. this patterned black and white layered tank goes perfectly with denim. dress it up with a blazer or keep it casual with a utility jacket like i did here.

good wine with good friends.
dinner date with mini-he at genki sushi. he's a cheap date...only two plates + dessert for him. salmon for me.
acai bowls + shave ice.
refreshing big wave golden ale from kona brewing company after a day at the beach.
first time making broken glass jello (eggs). i only had one 6-egg mold, so the rest went into a pan, but props to anyone who makes this. it is hard work. mine isn't the prettiest, but it still tasted good!
super cute easter donuts from regal bakery.

anatomy of an easter outfit.

nothing screams spring more than florals and lace. throw them together, add cute sandals + a pop of pastel on your lips, and you have a cheery easter outfit.
