WANTED -Shopbop via la la lovely

I’m curious.  When it comes to clothes do you change colors schemes when seasons change?  I’m beginning to notice that my style is somewhat skipping seasons.  It moves along and morphs from boots to sandals, from long heavy sweaters to swinging flowy dresses, from ripped up jeans to their shorter variety, and so on.  However, the colors I’m continually drawn to seem be on repeat each season.  I kind of dig it because it lets me crossover seaons items and mix and match.

Shopbop is having a major sale (25% off code below), so I’ve been setting sights on a few pieces I’m loving for spring and summer.  This is where and when I like to purchase a pair of sandals.  I’m especially loving mules and wedges, at the moment.  Here are a few of my faves.

And how about these accessories?  I said I’d NEVER wear a Fanny Pack, but here I am suggesting one to you.  I guess because I’m wanting one too.  Hey the 90’s called and they said Fanny Packs are cool again.

 

And, a few clothing stapes for summer.  Yes, I’ve included a sweater.  Because where I live we still pull out sweaters and long sleeves when the sunlight leaves for the day or when we are indoors under all that air conditioning.  Do you too?

 

What is on your wish list for spring and summer?

You can get 25% off your order at SHOPBOP by using code: SPRING25 when you checkout through April 9 at 11:59 p.m.

Would you agree?  I carry way more than I should and then try to cast my cares.

pretty cake.  Because when cake is this pretty it’s almost sweeter to look at then eat.  Maybe?  This gorgeous photo is by Linda Lomelino who takes stunning photos of food.

I’ve longed loved this photo of what I thought was a photo of a flying circus tent or something.  Come to find out it is a whole photo series by Laurent Chéhére called Flying Houses.  I’m always taken with anything magical and surreal.  But, the fact that it is about houses, totally makes me swoon….la la love!  These are  are just a few of my favorites, but there are so many more stunning ones, here.

So the weekend is upon us, once again.  Fridays feel so full of anticipation.  I’d like to get my Mondays to feel that way, too.  Sometimes they do, but they are mixed with a large does of expectation, anticipation and a little anxiousness at the thought of will I get it all done?  I guess that is just a sign of still needing to work on taking one day at time.

But, for now I’m looking forward to this weekend…spending time with an out of town bestie.  A soul sister, really.

Beyond that, I’m thinking spring break and Easter.  Do you have any big plans for Easter?  Any lovely traditions?  I need to start making more holiday traditions.  I didn’t have a ton growing up, but the little things we seemed to repeat each year are things I find myself trying repeat with my kids now.

Speaking of Easter, I shared the easiest Easter eggs ever this week, if you are going to be dipping, dying or coloring.

Happy weekend, lovelies!

FEW OF MY FAVES  THIS WEEK +

01 / Do people really not notice the weather when they are happy?  What do you think?

02 / Kids love to play with shaving cream, but how about create with it?

Easy Easter Eggs via La La Lovely

I am all for easy when it comes to eggs, Easter, and everything and anything crafty and holiday, really.  For as long as I can remember Easter eggs have been synonymous with PAAS.  Dipping and dying was where it was at – – since I was a kid.  And, don’t get me wrong, I love a good color dunked egg, but I also love the idea of doing things a little different….especially when different entails endless design possibilities, and a promise of way less mess.

Enter the idea of . . .
