Fresh Floral

Dress: Rebecca Taylor (similar), Jacket: via Stitch Fix, Necklace: c/o Everyday Icing, Bracelets: c/o Everyday Icing
Nails: Butter London 'Kerfuffle', Shoes: Tieks by Gavrieli

I think one of the easiest and most comfortable things to wear is a maxi dress. They can be dressed up or down in a flash and always look put-together.  Every spring I get so excited to see all the beautiful colors and prints of the new maxi dresses for the season. I'm currently coveting this one and this one.

I am also borderline obsessed with ballet flats. They are my go-to comfy shoes for running around the mall or grocery store. I recently saw the Tieks by Gavrieli on Oprah's favorite list and I was intrigued. What caught my attention at first was the stunning blue soles. I decided to give them a try, because quite frankly a girl can never have enough pairs of comfortable shoes. They came packaged in the cutest blue box topped with a big pink bow (which my daughter decided was a hairbow and wore it to school the next day). And once they slid on my feet, I knew it was love. So soft and comfortable and the leather is like butter. I totally adore them. Now for the big question, what color to get next?

Everyday

Top: c/o LAmade Clothing (20% off purchase w/code HEARTS20), Under Cami: Splendid, Cardigan: Free People, Jeans: AG Stilt, Frye (on sale!) 
Necklace: c/o Style Lately, Belt: c/o Forest & Culver, Clutch: c/o ever+mi.crush

As much as I love getting dolled up and wearing dresses and heels, in my everyday life I do sport jeans and t-shirts quite often. Many days are spent running errands, walking the dogs, and volunteering at the kids school. I'd say this outfit represents me in my day-to-day life perfectly. Jeans, cardigan, boots and a ponytail. Yep, that's me.

Hint of Mint

Dress: Taylor, Shoes: Aldo, Purse: JJ Winters, Bracelet: Kate Spade, Toe Nails: Butter London 'Fiver', Finger Nails: Butter London 'Slapper'

As far as I'm concerned, a girl can never go wrong with a black and white polka dot dress. I love how sweet and feminine this dress is, and the exposed back zipper gives it a modern feel. And I love the idea of mixing touches of a pretty pastel color, like mint, to soften the black and white print. As you can see, I'm so ready for spring! We've been very lucky in Southern California because we've been having some beautiful weather lately. I'm loving being about to go out in a sundress and sandals. As much as I love throwing on cozy sweaters and jeans, I feel my best in dresses and skirts. I hope the warmer weather is here to stay. XO.

Winter Green

Sweater: c/o LAmade Clothing (20% off purchase w/code HEARTS20), Jacket: Boden USA (similar), Jeans: AG, Boots: Hunter

The family and I went on a little getaway to the mountains. It's been so long since we've been to the snow, and we wanted to make sure to see it before winter is over. I almost forgot how absolutely beautiful it is! We need to make a point to visit the snow more often. As much as I can't wait for spring to arrive, it's nice to enjoy the splendor and beauty of winter just a little bit longer. XO.

Bloom

Blouse: Ace Delivery, Skirt: Collective Concepts, Earrings: c/o Nashelle, Tights: Commando, Shoes: Rachel Comey,  Handbag: c/o August Wrinkle, Sunglasses: Prada, Nails: Butter London 'Sweetie Shop' in Jasper, Kerfuffle, Fiver, Molly Coddled & Cuppa, Rings: Stella & Dot

It feels like Spring has sprung early this year. Walking around my yard, I noticed all of the fruit trees are already blooming and the birds are already happily chirping. I can't wait to bid farewell to the dark and dreary days of Winter, and wish a warm welcome to the bright and cheerful days of Spring.

Minted

Dress: Greylin, Shoes: Anthropologie (also worn here), Belt: c/o Forest & Culver, Clutch: c/o GiGi New York (also worn here), Necklace: c/o Rock of Eden 

If you're thinking that I was being rained on while taking these pictures, you are correct. Yes, I'm crazy enough to go outside in the rain in a sundress, bare legs and sandals. In my defense, it wasn't raining when I planned out this outfit. And, at least it was a warm California rain.  :)  Have a beautiful day friends! XO.

Today is my husband's birthday. My heart fills with warmth when I think about what a wonderful man he is, and what an incredible journey we have shared. We've spent the last 15 years together. We've been through our share of hardships, fires, and struggles. But much more importantly, we've experienced amazing adventures, traveled across the world together, had two incredible children, built our dream house together, and through it all, our love continues to flourish each and every day. I can't imagine my life without him in it. He inspires me every day to challenge myself, love myself and to see the simple beauty in the world. I feel blessed to get to share my life with my best friend and soul mate. And I hope he has the most amazing birthday ever! 

Happy birthday to the love of my life! xoxo.

Dress: Rachel Pally, Blazer: Nanette Lepore, Clutch: c/o GiGi New York (Winter Sale HERE), Shoes: Anthropologie
Earrings: Alexis Bittar (similar), Necklace: c/o Brooklyn Designs

I wore this outfit last weekend on a date with my honey. I recreated it today because I was so in love with it! It's one of those outfits that just feels good. We went to a concert in LA and I thought it was the perfect look for our date. I love the vibrant colors in the dress, which also is perfect for dancing in because the movement of the skirt is amazing! My husband said the blazer was too "businessy", but what he doesn't understand is how hard it is for a girl to get dressed up pretty and still be warm. I think it did just the trick. I know I'll be living in this dress when warmer weather hits, and he can rest assured, I won't be wearing the blazer. XO.
