New Year New Obsessions

After the New Year I always start craving the Sun and a vacation. Matt and I are actually in the midst of planning a tropical getaway in the next few months,  so many of my obsessions this week are beach related!  We are looking to travel somewhere in the BVI or US Virgin Islands (thinking maybe all inclusive) and would welcome any recs of places to stay!  

I love this straw purse, perfect for a beach getaway.  Under $100!

These shoes are perfection and under $200 although they look like a million bucks!  
I think these would look equally great with jeans and dresses.

The color of this dress is just stunning!  You could wear it now with booties and then in the Summer with cute flats.

I just love this pattern on these shorts.  I even love the matching top paired with the shorts.

I am so tempted to order this romper to try,  It is only $60 and I love the color.   Plus it looks like a classic and not too revealing fit.
Such a fab cover up, also comes in white.  I really like the cut-out detail at the bottom and shoulders.

I have mentioned this blouse before but it is on major sale plus additional 40% off with code STYLE2015.  It comes to only $30 after the discount. I love the white or blue for summer paired with cut-offs.

 I own the black and white- it runs on the large side, I am wearing a size 2.

This is quite possibly the perfect nude lipstick.  I am hooked on mine, it goes on smoothly and provides the perfect hint of color.

I love both these Lemlem tunics on sale plus additonal 40% off and Lemlem is rarely on sale.  I actually ordered the shorter version to try out.
also in the longer version.
Obsessing over the colors and pattern on this bag.  Perfect for a weekend getaway!
This is one of my picks from the Lily sale.  I fell in love with this hot pink leopard when I saw it in the store.  It is now only $39, today is the last day to shop the sale.

I also love the Elsa blouse in this fun pattern, reminds me of Palm Beach in the 70s. The colors are so vibrant.  Now 50% off!

I am loving these flats in all 4 colors and designs they come in!

Really digging this white blouse, the bottom detail is gorgeous.

This is not clothes related but Matt and I are obsessed with this Coconut Water, like it is the best coconut water we have had.  I like that it comes in cans to keep it really cold plus I love the bits of pulp in it.  I keep ordering it by the caseload.

The First Days of 2015

I hope everyone had a great New Years and start to 2015.  Matt and I decided to have some alone time on New Years Eve and go to dinner just the two of us.  And you know what I stuck with one of my resolutions and didn't take any pictures and left my phone in my purse the whole dinner.  I am trying to be fully engaged in moments like that and not always on my phone!  We had a lovely time and then came home to two sick kids:(

Both Sterling and Frances have been sick for days.  This was what our New Years Day looked like.  Pretty sad.  Frances ended up having RSV and Sterling had some sort of a virus.

Matt and I decided we needed an adult beverage to unwind after taking care of the sick babies and we made the most delish Bloody Marys.  Apparently New Years Day is national Bloody Mary Day- so fitting, right??

Then we of course had to eat our collard greens and black eyed peas.
This is our standard New Years Day meal, we don't love pork so we do fried chicken instead. 
and confession I was super lazy this year and picked this whole meal up at Publix, the only thing I cooked was the cornbread.  It all was delicious and made for a stress free New Years.

Since I wasn't on my A game at Christmas I decided to make some healthy New Years treats for our neighbors.   I made Energy Balls and Coconut Carrot Zucchini Muffins.

The muffins are a great healthy breakfast and the kids love them.

My after Christmas sale purchase arrived and I love it.
Available in the black/navy combo on sale and in the pink top version
Both are extra 30% off with code WINTER30.

One of Matt's friends passed along this adorable Carolina dress for Frances. 
 She is still loving her piano, her favorite Christmas gift.

On Saturday night we made some amazing nachos and paired them with George Clooney's tequila which was actually very good!

My first Chatbook arrived in the mail and I love it!!  It is such a great way to print and save your instagram photos!  If you use code SNOOP762 you can get your first book free!

On Sunday the kids were finally well enough to venture to Target.  I have never been so excited to get dressed and out of the house. I am wearing a small in the blouse, it runs TTS and is currently on sale.  I think it will be great in the Spring too because it is lightly sheer, will look awesome with white jeans.

I also sat down and got organized for the New Year while the kids napped. This is my second year using a Gigi New York Planner, they are my favorite.  The planners are not on sale but you must check out their Winter Sale I mentioned yesterday!    The sale opens to the public tomorrow but you can shop early HERE!!

And for all you Lily Pulitzer fans, the big New Years sale starts today at 8:00am!  Lily is not totally my style but I do love her blouses and the little girl clothes and they will be on sale,  so of course I will be checking them out!  You can shop HERE! 


Happy First Monday of 2015!

I have had my eye on this cross body forever and might just need to make it mine!

 It also comes in all black which I equally love!

The Teddie Tote is one of my favorite everyday purses.  It is on sale in several colors.

Another favorite of mine is the Elle Crossbody.  
I love the Stone color, the perfect neutral.

I also love the Uber Clutch.  It is big enough to fit all your stuff for a night out!

The smaller all in one clutch is also on sale.  I am smitten with this gorgeous emerald green color.  Would be so pretty for the spring paired with pink or white!
