With spring officially here, I have been wanting to refresh my workout wear a bit and add a few more brightly colored, warm weather pieces. I recently grabbed this green set at Fabletics and have been looking for a few more cute spring/summer workout outfits. Here’s a few fun options I’ve found…
One | I’m always looking for a good dupe for Skinceuticals Vitamin C Serum, and I recently came across this great alternative. It contains all of the same active ingredients and I’ve really been loving this serum.
Two | I bought some of this years ago, and just bought another jar of this affordable, hydrating eye cream.
Three | I recently got this moisturizer and I really love it. The smell is a little strange, but it is so moisturizing and works so well for my skin.
Four | Slippers are getting more wear than actual shoes these days, and I recently bought this pair. These come in so many color options and really are the perfect house shoe.
Five | I love that this cardigan looks like a structured jacket, but with a comfortable knit fabric. It’s perfect for just throwing on with jeans and a tee and instantly look polished.
Six | I just grabbed this sweet summery dress while on sale, and ended up wearing it for Easter as we had an unexpectedly warm day. I will be wearing this one all summer long.
Seven | I just grabbed this necklace in a different color way (which is no longer available), but I love this blue color. A great way to dress up the most simple of outfits.
Eight | I’ve been wanting a leopard suit and this affordable one is going to get a ton of wear this summer.
Nine | I finally caved to the hype and bought the Truff Hot Sauce. It really does live up to all the hype.
Ten | This is a really nice hair mask and it has a lovely scent.
Even though we will be staying home for another quarantine Easter this year, I really love the idea of dressing up and celebrating big. Last year at this time, my son Evan was in the pediatric intensive care unit fighting for his life. And while Easter has always been a special time of year, it now holds extra special significance for us. On Easter Sunday last year Evan had finally stabilized and improved after six weeks of intensive care, and was able to be transferred to the regular pediatric unit as he began his recovery. Spring is truly a time of hope, rebirth, and renewal. And Easter is a reminder of God’s never ending grace. He still performs miracles today.
I’ve been on the hunt for a few options for Easter dresses and settled on these two. I’ll probably wear the longer sleeve option as the spring weather here in Boise is still cool, but I love this other dress so much I’m keeping it as well. Today I wanted to share some of the prettiest spring and Easter dresses I’ve come across in my search.
The days are starting to become sunnier and warmer, and there’s definitely a feel of spring in the air. That said, spring in Idaho can be 60 degrees one day and 30 degrees the next day (or the next hour for that matter), so a mid weight jacket is a must have clothing item this time of year. I tend to gravitate towards lighter colors to give my outfit a more “spring” look and feel, and a water resistant jacket is another wonderful wardrobe addition for those rainy spring days. The “shacket” trend is still going strong, and in lighter fabrics and colors, they make for another stylish and fun option for a spring jacket. My absolute favorite jacket for spring is my classic Burberry trench coat which I’ve had for about 10 years. It is definitely one of those pieces that is worth splurging on as it will never go out of style, and is such a versatile piece.
One | I love the sweater material of this shacket
Two | A classic trench in a plaid print
Three | This pretty pink raincoat also comes in a few other colors
Four | This green color is so unique, but this classic raincoat comes in a few other colors as well
Five | This classic silhouette but in a sweater material makes for a comfortable layering piece
Six | Such a pretty blush colored shacket
Seven | This classic neutral colored moto jacket is on major sale
Eight | A classic denim jacket is pretty much a must have spring wardrobe piece
Nine | This tweed knit blazer is so unique and could be dressed up or down
Ten | This oversize plaid shacket comes in a few other great spring colors too
Eleven | This under $50 trench looks so much more expensive than it is. I love this blush but it comes in a really pretty white option too
Twelve | Such a versatile jacket that will go with anything
Thirteen | A fun updated twist on a tweed jacket
Fourteen | This light blue moto jacket feels so fresh
Fifteen | A more casual trench coat option
Sixteen | This classic blazer can be dressed up or down
The end of February has finally arrived, and today I thought it would be fun to share a quick post of some of my favorite buys over the past month.
One | I’ve loved this skincare line for a long time, but just recently bought this lip balm to try for the first time. It is amazing for moisturizing lips, and I love each of the 3 scents so much that I’m so happy I purchased the trio.
Two | This candle blends two of my favorite scents – lavender and lemon. It has been bringing a little feeling of spring into my home and it’s also very affordable.
Three | I’ve been hearing good things about this brand, so I recently picked up this sleeping mask. I absolutely love the texture and scent, and it really does make my skin soft and glowy.
Four | I’m someone who is very sensitive to scents, and in looking for a new perfume to try I came across really great reviews for this one. It has a light, fresh scent that isn’t overly strong for someone sensitive like myself and I have really been loving this.
Five | I really love the look of Bottega Venetta’s pouch clutch, but I simply cannot justify $2800 for a clutch that will only get used a few times a year. This $40 option is a fantastic substitute and really looks very high quality.
Six | I recently bought this delicate wash for washing my washable silk items (like my pillowcase), and I absolutely love the light, fresh scent. It also keeps my silk items in pristine condition and they wash up beautifully with this.
Seven | I have been stalking the Nordstrom Rack site for ages hoping to score one of these blankets on sale, and I finally got one! They don’t currently have any available (they tend to go fast!), but they pop up from time to time so definitely keep your eye out. This blanket is by far the softest one we own and our entire family is always fighting over it.
Eight | Evan saw a commercial for these and begged for one for literally a month. I decided to surprise him with one as part of his Valentine’s Day gift and he absolutely loves it. The lights really are calming and relaxing and it helps him fall asleep much faster.
Nine | When I apply my skincare products, I always apply the extra from applying to my face to the back of my hands to improve the appearance of aging on my hands as well. I was looking for something I could add specifically for my hands to my routine and came across this cream. I’ve just started using it and already see an improvement in my skin’s appearance.
Ten | Covid has really made me want to up my sterilization game and sterilize everything. This phone sanitizer is great for sanitizing your phone as well as keys or any other small items. It has an aromatherapy port where you can add a little scented oil to make your items smell nice too.
We’ve definitely entered that point of a weird in between season here in Boise. One moment it’s sunny and mild out, the next moment we are having a literal blizzard and waking up to snow on the ground. While I’m definitely ready for spring, I’m not feeling quite ready to burst out the pastel florals. I’ve been feeling really drawn to dark, wintery florals lately which I feel are a great transitional piece for this in-between winter and spring season.
Even though I am a stay at home mom, Zoom meetings have become a super important part of my son Evan’s ongoing care management for his brain injury recovery. And like many people, Zoom has been a way to stay connected with our friends and family this past year as well. It can be so easy to get stuck in a style and beauty rut spending so much time at home, but I do find that taking some time to make myself feel a little more glam always improves my mood. And it definitely makes me feel a little more confident when I have to see my face plastered on a large screen on Zoom meetings. A pretty feminine sweater, a pop of bold lip color, and some pretty earrings are a simple way to make me feel pulled together and a bit more fancy. Today I wanted to share a few pretty zoom look combos that I’m loving.
