Embrace Imperfection

Confession time: I have a perfectionist streak. I can get really caught up in details and I tend to take on more than I should because I know that I will get things done the “right way” (aka way I want them done). Anyone else feel me? I can’t say that I hate it all of time (I mean I feel like it’s helped me accomplish some cool things), but it can be a bit exhausting.

Perfect Spring Wedge

It’s no secret that I’m a flats girl, and most of the time that applies for Spring and Summer shoes too, unless we’re talking wedges. I love a good wedge because they’re so versatile: they function as a casual shoe and a dressier shoe. They pair with shorts, dresses, and everything in between! And maybe my most favorite? They are so comfortable and easy to walk in (even when carrying a baby)!

Knotted Button Down

Another Monday upon us, and this time I can truly say it came too soon. On Saturday we had a pretty laid-back day at a local festival, but Sunday wiped me out completely. I was one of the crazies that set an alarm for midnight to shop the Lilly for Target Collection. Between the site crashes and updates, I ended up staying up until 4 am. Layla woke up promptly at 6, leaving me feeling fully exhausted. And because I hadn’t had enough crazy, I went to my local Target around 7:45 (not expecting much of a crowd). Boy I was wrong. I walked in with the line right around 8 am, and all of the racks were cleared by 8:02. I never stood a chance. At least I was able to get a couple orders through in the middle of the night. (I’m sure the Target loves seeing multiple orders from one customer with just one item, but a girl has got to do….)

You may recognize this J.Crew floral top that I picked up when I was newly pregnant. It’s too big to wear untucked now, but it’s a perfect fit knotted!

Spring Break in NorCal

Neither Layla or I are technically in school, but we can still have a Spring break, right?! Well, we did. Technically we were celebrating my little sister’s Spring break when we made the trek to Northern California. It wasn’t quite as warm as we had originally thought it would be, but we still did manage to sneak in two pool trips and enjoy some time outdoors!
