Currently Obsessing Over... {v. 59}


This week has been a really great one! I think part of it has been the happiness of a great baby shower last weekend with all my favorite girls, and part is the anticipation of a great weekend this weekend with some more of my favorite girls- but whatever it is I've been enjoying every minute! 

Here's what I've got on the brain this week...

"Our Greatest Adventure Begins..."


This past weekend my besties and I got to shower one of our own, Alison, who is welcoming her first child (a sweet baby boy!) in March. It was such an amazing weekend, filled with love, laughter, memories, and the cutest baby clothes! We were all marveling over the fact that we have now been friends for 8 years (we all meet in college Freshman year) and since that time we have been through so many adventures together- but I will say that helping these girls welcome babies has to be one of the most special ones!

We decided on an "adventure" theme for Alison's shower since her hubby is a seaplane pilot and they spent several months in Alaska for his work. I figured this big 'ol fur fit right in ;) Alison & Ben are such a fun and loving couple and are seriously going to make the best parents to little Rhett Charles! We can't wait to meet him y'all!

Ahoy Mateys!


Happy hump day y'all! I'm super excited about today's outfit and photos because they coincide with  Gasparilla this weekend- which, if you don't know, is a "pirate invasion" in Tampa, Florida. Think Mardi Gras but with pirate ships... so fun, right?! I actually haven't been since college (oy vey those memories...) so I'm super excited to pop-fizz-clink the weekend away while yelling "ahoy matey" and stacking up those beads! Plus, one of my favorite gal pals is coming back into town for the weekend! Best weekend ever!

Nice and Neutral


Happy Tuesday y'all! For all my northern friends- I hope y'all are surviving the deep freeze up there! It's actually been chilly down here in Florida- So I'm finally getting to pull out all my favorite sweaters and "winter" wear- and I'm loving' it! Quite surprisingly I'm totally into the neutrals in this look (shock of all shocks!) and I'm loving that they aren't boring at all. You may recognize this vest from this post, and after a more sophisticated look, I had a blast transforming it today into something much more casual. What have y'all been doing to keep warm this week??

My Favorite Running Gear + Playlist

I have never been a runner. My whole life I've looked in envy and awe at the powerful ladies I would see running with their strollers on Saturday morning, or the gentlemen I would see completing half-marathons & marathons with grace. For the longest time I didn't think I had a chance at that being me. About half-way through 2015 I decided that I wanted to become the very thing I was not sure I could do... be a runner! Although I'm by no means a marathon-er (maybe one day!) I've seen my running "game" grow by leaps and bounds and am so proud to see the distances I can now travel on my own two feet :) 

So for any of my other runners, or girls who are trying to start too, I thought it would be great to kick off the week with a round-up my favorite sports gear + some of my favorite running songs. If you have any recommendations for additional gear or great jams send 'em my way!

NY Trip Day 2: Work Style

 

For my second day in NYC for work I needed to "work with what I had" a little bit. Since I only had a carry-on to travel with I couldn't let my chronic overpacking tendencies come out to play and had to streamline my outfits. I decided to keep with the same boots/tights look from the day before (new pair of tights though!!) and add on a new sweater and skirt combo. Easy peasy and perfect for meetings and more travel back home!

How to Wear the Pantone Colors of Spring 2016



I think by now we all know that Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue are the Pantone colors of the year, but did you know there are some gorgeous "runner's up" (as I like to call them!) to round out the spring color pallet! Not only are there pastels, there are vibrant hues and lovely brights- so much to love! Today I thought it would be fun to share several of my favorite combinations in hopes that inspires you to mix and match your closet and gets you as pumped for spring as I am!

Make it Your Own with CaseApp


Happy Monday y'all! I hope that you (like me) are getting today off of work and are having some fun relaxing! I actually plan on cleaning the house from top to bottom- I've been so busy this is the first chance I've had to deep clean and I let's just say she needs it! :)

Sunday Scripture + Thoughts


I'm still working my way through Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets Them Free, and we just finished a phenomenal chapter on "Lies Women Believe: About Sin" so this verse is near and dear to my heart right now. This chapter was all about not only understanding what sin is (and what is  "qualified" as a sin) but also on understanding the depth of God's grace for us. That he wouldn't leave us in a barren and lonely place to suffer in sin alone, but instead send Jesus to take on our sins and wipe our slate clean. Y'all I'm still working on wrapping my head around just how deeply we are loved. I hope on this Sunday you let that truth really sink into your heart and you recognize how dearly loved you are by God. Praying for you sisters! XO

Woah nelly! This week was sure a crazy one- I guess traveling in the middle of the workweek will do that to you! It took me a little longer than I thought to get back into the swing of things, so needless to say a huge TGIF is in order! #YesWayRose I hope y'all have some fun plans on your radar, and if you need any inspiration then keep on reading ;)

First Work Trip!


Today I'm headed to New York for my first trip in my new role as an associate jewelry buyer! It's market week so in the next 36 hours I will be meeting with 4 of my vendors to pick out product- so much to do! I'm so excited to get to the city, but things will be quiet around here until I'm back on Thursday :) have a fabulous few days and can't wait to tell y'all about my trip! (In the meantime you can keep up with my adventures on Instagram)!

Celebrations in Celebration


Happy Monday y'all! I know that Monday's aren't normally a cause for celebration (more like a reason to #SaveWaterDrinkWine) but I love adding cheer to my everyday and today seemed like the perfect day to do so! :) 

Recently, my family and I went to Celebration, FL to (what else?) celebrate my Grandma's birthday. She was born December 26, so it's always fun to keep our Christmas cheer & family time going during her birthday celebrations! We love having dinner at the Columbia restaurant there- I literally dream about their 1905 salad- the best!! And they start your meal by bringing you our a hot-out-of-the-oven cuban bread portion... it's the most amazing dinner! Eek- now I'm hungry!! :)

I have been itching to put this post together because I have SO much to share with you!! These last two weeks have been a whirlwind with Christmas and celebrating 2016 (seriously... how is it a new year?!) and I've come across so many good finds that I bookmarked to share with y'all! Today's round-up may have a little more than normal but that's just 'cause I didn't want to withold any goodness from you!

Camo Vest & LBD


Hey y'all! Happy Thursday! Sorry for the radio silence yesterday on all fronts, this week has been- in one word: insane. I'm taking my first work trip to New York next week (cue the excitement) but the preparation has me in a tailspin and I've been working non-stop to get all my reports ready. On top of that I had a Junior League board meeting and Buddy has a foot infection... real life is sure glamorous right ;)

New Year's Resolutions!


I'm so excited today to share my New Year's Resolutions with y'all! I didn't make very specific ones last year (you can check them out here) and I have to be honest, it was hard to keep them because there was nothing to quantify. So this year I want to be more intentional with my goals, narrow them down, and have a few to strive to keep. So without further ado here are my 2016 resolutions...

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale + Recent Instagram Looks

Happy Happy Monday y'all! I can't help but be extra happy today since it's the Lilly Pulitzer After-Party sale!! If you haven't checked out the sale yet, or aren't sure what to get, I thought I would share a few of my recent favorites with sizing information to help ya' out! I'm not 100% sure what will be in the sale yet (it's usually summer and some early fall with a few "extras" thrown in- but I will try to update today as I have time)! :)

This might be my most favorite dress in recent history- the Linden dress! It is an A-line t-shirt dress so it fits like a dream (and doesn't cling to my curves). For size reference I'm a M and I sized up to a L due to my curvy booty & hips!
