A few items I've been loving lately:

I love all things black and white.  Hence, my wedding invitations (Ok.  Black, white and pink... that's the combination I *really* love).  When I spotted this $6 tray organizer at TJMaxx recently, I knew how it could be used:

I'm a hot mess.  Did I really just post this disaster online?  But the tray did help me get my organize on and it turned out nicely (& much more blog appropriate):


Yet another Jackie Cardi in laquer yellow.  The color in person is much more bright & beautiful.  I have really been craving color lately.  Better that than cake, eh?

My sister gifted me the Too Faced Pink Leopard bronzer & UD's All-Nighter setting spray for my birthday back in March.  The setting spray has turned into a must after I apply makeup.  It helps my makeup appear fresh all. day.  The bronzer is very pretty and light which is good for a pale girl like myself as it would take a lot of this to look like a clown.  Finally, Smashbox Photo Finish Luminizing Primer helps give my skin a little glow in addtion to making foundation application more even.  

Nathan & I are hopping into the golf cart in a few to catch a Journey cover band at the Country Club tonight.  I always love nights out at the CC because we can both drink and not worry about one of us staying sober- and usually the sober person is me.  So yay for getting to enjoy a few drinks tonight!  I hope you all have a wonderful & safe holiday weekend.  Do you have any big plans, I'd love to hear about them!  :)

Well, hello there!

Hi everyone!  Today when I opened my mailbox it smelled like roses, so lovely!  Inside was the gift from Ella Pretty's recent 100 follower giveaway.  Thank you so much, Ella.  I will really enjoy these items!

I've been loving my Alex espadrilles recently.  They are pretty high and definitely get a lot of attention.

This is how the height of the Alex compares to my Michael Kors espadrilles that I wore the heck out of last summer.  I have to be careful to not break my ankles in the new shoes... but they are so fabulous!!  :)  Nathan said they were "sexy shoes."  Duh, husband! ;-)

I love, love, love this top from Ann Taylor.  It was a recent purchase during their 40% off F&F sale.  It looks good both casual & more dressed up and the color is beautiful, unlike anything I have in my closet.

Leopard print... need I say more?  Bought this during the same sale citing no snow leopard in my wardrobe.  ;-)

These two skirts are on my current lust list, both from J.Crew.  I need more professional clothing since I will be doing two days a week at an OB/GYN office this summer as I work toward my FNP.

Love the eyelet detail of this one.

And how gorgeous is this peacock color?  I may need to stop by J.Crew after work this week!

I'm a little nervous about working two days at the OB/GYN for clinicals, hanging onto my FT gig and all of the paperwork for school... but I know when summer is through I will be so thankful to be that much closer to graduating next spring!  What are yall looking forward to this summer?
