Ruffle Sleeve Dress:

Hey guys!  Happy work week (again!) – ugh!  I was pretty sure yesterday was going to kill me. Actually I think those thoughts everyday lately lol. Can this flu season be over already?! I worked 10 hours on my feet yesterday (with a 20 min lunch break) and was literally running all day. I have a feeling my cute skirts and BR sloan pant days are coming to an end for awhile ha – I foresee a few new pairs of Nike sneakers in my life and whatever comfy pants I can find in my closet. 😅 I’ve become a huge fan of sateen denim lately. It feels like pants (not denim), but has the 5 pocket look and fit like a pair of skinny jeans. I have a pair from Old Navy and LOFT and plan on buying more soon! I think they’ll pair really well with sneakers also, because next year I’m going to be prepared! My poor Tory Burch Minnie‘s (best work flats!… unless you’re running…) are getting tore up. 🙁

Anyway, lets lighten this post up with a talk about this pretty little spring dress!  I posted a flatlay blog post about it awhile ago, but wanted to show you it on! It’s just too cute not to share again. And today it’s only $20! A major steal if you live down south in a hot summer state, or certainly if you are planning a spring break trip somewhere warm!

Please excuse the quality of this photo. First of all – I’m not near this tan lol. I haven’t used my tripod and camera in awhile since I stopped doing regular blog photos, and this was the first time I’ve used it in this part of my house — anyway, I definitely needed the flash on, took the photo without it, and had to do some major alterations on the photo just so you could see anything ha!  Anyway, so here we are tan, overly exposed, with a white/yellow wall! 😂

Thankfully the dress still looks cute, so pay attention to those details! I switched the necklace and bag out from the flatlay. I felt like when I tried the dress on for a blog photo that the necklace was a little bulky for such a lightweight dress. The dainty Kendra Scott necklace worked out much better. I added a pair of fun earrings instead. I really wanted to pair the dress with a woven or straw bag, but the bag shown in the only one I own. I wish it had some blue colors in the design, so I highly recommend taking a look at this one or this one (both affordable from Penney’s!) My dress also comes in a super cute gingham print.

Statement Sweatshirt + #ootd

#ootd:

Old Navy scarf, Bobeau ruffle cold shoulder top, Old Navy denim, Sam Edelman boots

ruffle top (old – Bobeau) – similar, similar, similar | scarf (mine is from last year)

denim | booties (old – Sam Edelman) – similar, similar, similar | earrings (old – Baublebar) – similar

 

Statement sweatshirts are one of my favorites for the spring season. You can still stay warm, layer if needed, but the bright colors add a little to the otherwise boring top. And what’s better than staying comfy and warm and feeling bright and colorful? You can see my statement sweatshirt from last year here with the same bag from last year!

I have a love/hate relationship with Old Navy, and lately it’s been a major crush. I know last year the GAP brand basically made an announcement that they were going to concentrate more on Old Navy & Athleta, and in turn start to close down GAP and Banana stores. GAP is eh for me, a lot of misses with a rare find, but Banana is my go-to work work!  Thankfully my local store has stayed open, but other than the coveted Sloan pant that I wear all the time (new favorite here), I haven’t found a lot of “I NEED that” items.

However, Old Navy has been a major “I NEED that” lol! This sweatshirt (check stores for exact print; also comes in plain) is soft and cozy, I’m in love with their new small bags (here and here) and check out this printed sweater that comes in various prints (that bird print!). Guys I think I just have all the obsession with bright colors and prints. When I’m 75 I’m going to be that granny! 🙈

Happy Friday all! I’m sooo ready for the weekend to get here! I only worked 4 days this week, but the last 3 have been rough. I’m writing this post Thursday night, so hopefully Friday while you read this I’m not drowning at work. 😟 So much craziness in the land of pharmacy this time of year, especially since we live in a travel destination area. All I gotta say is – be nice to your pharmacist – they probably hasn’t eaten, peed, or sat in likely 8+ hours.  ☺️

And this sweater rounds up some of my favorite items on sale after the holidays! I’m excited to hopefully share some new spring items this week. I haven’t had any out of this world finds, but definitely watching and waiting for new items to roll out!
