I cannot believe April is almost over! It is getting so hot in the afternoons. I am NOT looking forward to the rising temperatures. I am, however, looking forward to taking Andi swimming. I know she is going to love it. The other day, she spotted a fountain and was ready to jump in! I’ll post pictures of that on my Instagram tomorrow. 🙂
I am really into spring bell sleeves right now. I have been wearing this top a lot lately. See how I first wore it here. I was excited to see that it pairs perfectly with my daisy skirt from Rachel Parcell, and it is under $50!
I am decked out in ruffles and bows today with this Spring ready top that I picked up from Zara last week! I love it with white skinny jeans! It even looks great with red or dark pink pants. The best part, it is under $36!! Grab one before they’re gone! Also, I am obsessed withthis lipstick lately. It stays on all day and comes in some beautiful colors.
I bought this Rachel Parcell spring seersucker dress a few weeks ago and I am obsessed! It is so cool and lightweight that I can wear it into the summer. I love the lace detail and the bell sleeves are so trendy right now. You can pop it with so many different color shoes, jewelry and bags.
Happy Wednesday! Last week I went to Target to check out the Victoria Beckham for Target collection. I loved just about everything! Thisgingham peplum topwas one of my favorite pieces. It sold out pretty quickly, so I found this one that is almost identical. I have also linked a few really cute gingham tops below in my “Shop The Post” section. Scroll down to see more!
I hope you all had an amazing Easter! We spent the day with friends and family. The weather was perfect!
We have been looking forward to giving Andi her Easter basket and helping her hunt for eggs all week. This was her first year participating and she caught on pretty quickly. At first, she would find an egg and open it immediately to see what was inside. She finally realized she should find them all as quickly as possible, and THEN open them up. Her basket was stuffed with all of her favorite things: M&M’s, Hershey Kisses, chapsticks with Disney Princesses on them, shoes, dresses, princess dolls and some Elena of Avalor goodies. It was almost like Christmas! She spent the day playing with her cousins and her Pappou. By the time we got home she was exhausted. I gave her a bath and put her to bed. It was a full day for everyone. 🙂
Happy Good Friday! Easter is just a few short days away and I have been running around like crazy getting last minute things for Sunday. We were lucky enough to get invited to our new Sprouts Farmers Market for a private tour before they officially opened. It was perfect, because I needed to get things for a new meal plan that I am starting this week. To say it is our new favorite grocery store, is an understatement. They have fresh, natural and organic groceries at amazingly affordable prices. Eating healthy doesn’t have to break the bank if you shop at Sprouts. They carry everything from cage free eggs, refrigerated breads, grass-fed beef, and even an in house butcher, who can custom cut, season, and even provide cooking suggestions. Sprouts stores contain around 18,000 products, 90 percent of which are natural or organic.
The store itself felt comfortable and easy to navigate. I hate going to grocery stores that feel intimidating and are hard to find what you are looking for. That wasn’t the case at Sprouts Farmers Market. Like it’s name, Sprouts felt like a southern, old time farmers market. From it’s decor down to it’s prices.
Anthony and I were blown away in the produce section. Everything looked colorful and delicious. They even offer to cut anything open for samples if you want to try before you buy. Produce can be found in the center of the store. Sprouts’ produce prices are on average 20 to 25 percent below other supermarkets.
We learned that Wednesday is one of their best days to save money and get more bang for your buck. They call it “Double Ad Wednesday”. Their weekly ad runs from Wednesday to Wednesday, which means if you happen to go on Wednesday, you can double your saving when the ads overlap.
The new mobile coupon app makes it even easier to save on Sprouts’ already low prices! Simply download the Sprouts app for iPhone or Android, create an account, digitally clip your coupons and then scan the barcode at checkout.

I can’t wait to go back and pick up some new things to try. I could have spent hours there the other night.
Can you believe we have less than a week until Easter?! I made a stop at Target yesterday to get everything for all the Easter goodies. I am extremely anxious to pass them out. There were so many cute things, especially the baskets! How cute is this one that I found for Andi? She is going to explode when she sees what’s inside.
Check back this week for more Spring style inspiration!
The weather this week has been absolutely beautiful! On Monday, we took Andi to a local botanical garden to take some pictures. It was so nice to let her run around and get some fresh air. As we were exploring, one of the volunteers came out to release some butterflies and asked if Andi would like to help. She was excited to see them up close, but not so excited to see them leave when we unzipped the net. She was sniffling and calling after them, as if they would just come back. Even though it wasn’t the outcome Andi had anticipated, it was a great thing for her to experience. She is so curious and wants to know how everything works. We love watching her examine everything; especially animals!

Happy Wednesday! I am so excited that this set was restocked! It sold when it was first released last summer. I love that it is a top and a skirt, so it can be worn together or separate! It would make a great Easter outfit. I am thinking of wearing it this weekend for Palm Sunday. Thanks for stopping by!
