EASTER.

Happy Easter to those who celebrated! Did you all have a nice day! We did! We started off with an easter egg hunt for the kids at my parents clubhouse in their neighborhood. Blaire loved it and Everett just wanted to crawl and eat the plastic eggs since the poor guy is getting his first tooth. After that we took some pictures (for the blog of course!) and made our way back to my parent’s house for tons of food and fun with my cousins, aunts and uncles.

I love this guy. We used the self timer for these shots HA! This dress from Urban Outfitters is so cute. I was able to wear it all day running around with the kids and be comfortable. It is the perfect length to wear with flat sandals too once it starts getting hotter out.

SHOP IT // STYLE IT

It’s Friday and I am excited for this week’s Shop It // Style It because I am shopping for a purpose. Usually these posts are things I am lusting over and things that I have discovered and cannot wait to share with you. This week is of course the same but my very beautiful cousin is getting married and has tasked me to send her some outfit options for her engagement party. So I thought while I am at it I might as well look for options for myself! With wedding season approaching I am sure people are heading to engagement parties so this post should find you well!

REVOLVE

Brides dressed in white are always so beautiful and showstopping whether it is for a shower, wedding or engagement party and a jumpsuit is so sleek and a more modern approach to the “bride in white.” I love this criss cross back one, this shorts playsuit and this beige wide legged version.

I love the cut out edge of this pump. It comes in 2 colors but with these jumpsuits I am liking the light pink suede.

Rose gold and white is so gorgeous together and I think these drops would be stunning.

ZARA

I am eyeing up this dress for myself. I do not want to be too overdressed but I cannot stop looking at it.

These d’orsay pumps are a fun update to a basic black pump.

I love love love these twisted silver earrings.

This black animal print clutch is perfect and adds some edge to this sheer dress.

NORDSTROM

This flutter cape romper is so cute and a little more casual but could be dressed up with jewels and heels.

Oh these suede tassle lace ups are phenomenal. They can be worn now with this romper and then later for date night with skinnies and a cute top. They also come in 3 colors!

Ear crawlers are so fun and I am obsessing over these.

This classic envelope clutch is 40% and would be perfect with this outfit and every other outfit!

THE PERECT TEE

I am so excited that I found it. The perfect tee. I think a tee shirt is a closet staple that everyone needs in their wardrobe. But to find the perfect one is sometimes hard. The fabric is too thin or too cheap, the fit isn’t right, it doesn’t come in the color you need. But this tee from Fabrizio Gianni really is the best tee I have had my hands on. It is super soft, lightweight and drapey and is $45.

The fit on this tee is absolutely a boyfriend fit. Since I am 5 ‘1 and petite I wore it with tight distressed skinnies and heels to balance out the fit of my top. These jeans have the best released raw hem which I am loving on my denim recently.  I played around with it half tucked in the front and also untucked to show you how versatile it is. I can’t wait to wear it with cutoffs and sandals too.

I chose the heather grey but I might have to get the black and white too. I am telling you this tee is so soft! I love how a basic tee shirt can be worn in such a chic way when paired with white cat eye sunglasses and an insanely gorgeous statement necklace. I bought mine in the store at Forever 21 and they do not have the exact one online but I linked other options below!

I LOVE this blush pink bag. It isn’t too big where it feels bulky but big enough to fit everything I need! It comes with a long strap too to make it cross body but I wanted to keep this look lady like and simple.

I finished it off with my nude stacked heel ankle straps. I have already worn them twice and just got them a week ago. I posted them on Instagram last week and was so excited to wear them with the tee and skinnies. They are currently being price matched at Nordstrom and are $75!
