Nordstrom try on session

Hey there and Happy Valentine’s Day week and Happy Monday! That’s a whole lot of  happy. How was your weekend? Mine went by much too quickly.

I could use another 3 day weekend. I think the winter doldrums really hit hard after New Years. From September on there’s at least one day of celebration in each month and now during the months following the holidays we have a long stint with no notable holidays. There’s Easter and spring break for people with kids, but the next big day off for everyone is Memorial Day. So now we’re in a little holiday slump.

Are you a big Olympic fan? We aren’t, but we do have it on from time to time. I think you are either obsessed or pretty indifferent. #iguesswereindifferent

I ran in Nordstrom the other day and tried on a few spring things. I must have been feeling the beach because I was drawn to “beachy” feeling clothes this day. I kinda hate to say this because I know so many of you are still in the dead of winter, but last week it was in the mid 70’s here almost everyday and it.was.heaven!

So here’s what I’m seeing in a big way for spring. The color coral (which I love) looks like it’s going to be prevalent along with what I’d call bright pastels. Think aqua, periwinkle and yellow. Bows and peplums along with bell sleeves are popular and as much as some people are ready to be done with off the shoulder and cold shoulder, I think we’re still going to be seeing them a fair amount.

bow back sweater

This sweater is a cute example of bows. I think you could say it falls into the same category as a mullet…LOL Business in the front, party in the back.


camo cardi

I almost forgot to try this fun sweater on so I had to throw it on over my sweater. I love the camo with pink in it. Fun and girly all at the same time. This one runs large (even over a sweater) though and I should have tried on the x-small.

tunic sweater / jeans
Yep, I might have a love affair with coral this spring. How cute is this tunic sweater? It looks cute with these embroidered jeans or my dark distressed jeans I was wearing and would be darling with white jeans. It’s begging to be worn out for an evening of mini golf and ice cream on a trip to the beach.

tee / jeans

If you are in need of a cute tee with a little more personality, this one will fit the bill. I think it has the sweetest sleeves and a little more generous cut around the bottom that makes it hang well.


And in an effort to get you dreaming about your summer vacation here are a couple more sweaters  that will be perfect for a trip to the beach or island.

sweater  / jeans

This one is super versatile. You can wear it off the shoulder, as a cowl or if you’re feeling a little sassy just let one shoulder say peek-a-boo. Paired with the white embroidered jeans from one of my favorite makers, Wit and Wisdom, you are set!

ribbed cardi

Okay friends. Not gonna’ lie. ⬆️This one is GOOD! ⬆️It’s super soft. I’m talking like never want to take it off soft. I had a hard time not walking out with it on and I can’t promise it won’t eventually come to my house to live. If you don’t have a ⬇️long gray cardi ⬇️yet, this is the one you want.

striped cardi

And before we quit thinking about cardigans {which are obviously bringing their A-game} take a look at this striped version. This one is a linen feel and light enough to wear into summer. I’ve seen so many bloggers and girls on Instagram wearing similar sweaters and they are so cute. I’m always drawn to them.

pleated peplum sweater

Y’all know I really think something is cute when I take it into the dressing room in two colors. It means I’m feeling conflicted and sharing the love. The sweet little pleated peplum on this sweater could be paired with almost anything. A pencil skirt, jeans, white jeans, or shorts.

Whew! There you have it. What do you think? Now are you ready to head someplace warm and relax? I am. How about a girls weekend? Let’s go.

I’ll let y’all in on a secret. I tried on some dresses for my “mother of groom” role coming up. I need to get down to business and start really thinking about this. We FaceTimed with the love birds last night and they are just the cutest. What an exciting time!

Happy Monday friends and here’s to a great week!!!
