Wow, you know you haven’t blogged in a long time when you still aren’t logged into WordPress 🙂 It’s been a while, but life has been busy and I’ve enjoyed spending so much time with my family – and of course the occasional shopping trip!

One of my great friends loves vests. I mean loves them…we call it part of her uniform. And she’s started rubbing off on me. They are so great to have when it’s not too cold enough to have a coat but not quite warm enough just to have a shirt on. I snatched up this Loft Puffer Vest a few weeks ago when they were having 70% off online. Uh, yes please! Couldn’t resist the soft pink color. Typically I size down at the Loft, but I ordered a medium to make sure it was roomy enough to have a shirt or sweater underneath. It fits great – and is the softest fabric. Highly recommend.

I’ve also started quite the collection of fashionable sneakers. I follow Loverly Grey on Instagram. She’s the cutest thing and a native Atlanta suburb girl. She had these adidas Edge Luxe shoe on and was raving about them, so I decided to give them a try. SO glad I did. They really are super comfortable. And can we talk about the laces for a second? Too cute. When I wore them to work, I think I got about 10 compliments on them. (Can I mention I love an office where I can wear this cute outfit?!)

Antropologie Novela Maxi Dress and Tiffany Locket

Now, I own a lot of summer maxi dresses, BUT I have not found any long sleeve maxis that I loved. Until I saw this beauty at Anthropologie. The Novela maxi dress by Maeve. I saw it in the store last month and resisted trying it on. I didn’t want to spend $150. While I was in the Chicago store off of Michigan Ave. (who has THE best sales area of any Anthros), I saw it. For almost 1/2 off. You bet I snatched that up and headed to the dressing room.

It is so comfortable! So comfy it’s like wearing a nightgown. And I love the ruching underneath the bust. It makes me feel like I have such a tiny waist. And what woman doesn’t want to look like she has a small waist?!

Oh…and pockets! I’m so glad designers started putting pockets in dresses. They are always one of my favorite details!

Last year, I got this beautiful Tiffany & Co. locket for my birthday. One reason I love it…it has my gorgeous babies inside. It’s a way I always have them with me. They have my heart.
