My New Favorite *Yellow* Tote

Hey guys! I am so excited about my newest tote. (I have a problem. And it may involve hoarding handbags.) I have been in love with this $1,400 Goyard handbag (here) for years!!! Seriously, years. I have specifically wanted this yellow handbag but it's so pricey. I was randomly shopping on Amazon one night (surprise, surprise) and found an amazing copy of the Goyard bag (here)! You guys, it's so close to the designer bag!! I thought I would order it (it's only $50! A steal compared to the designer bag) and see if it was worth my money. If I was disappointed, I would just return it. But it honestly is great. I have used it every single day since I got it in the mail and it holds more than you'd think! I carry toys, diapers, wipes, sunscreen... everything I need fits no problem. It comes in so many colors! Shop more colors here.

This check chambray top is a fun way to mix up a basic chambray. It is loose and thin. Perfect for spring and I will totally throw this over dresses and tank in the summer, too! It's so cute! I paired it with my favorite black jeans (seriously can't get enough of them and they're only $70) and black sandals that I love. And they are on sale! Yahoo! They also come in a neutral color, which I have always wanted.

This look is simple and easy, my kinda look! You could always dress this down even more by throwing on some flip flops (these are my favorite). I am loving the weather right now! Spring is totally my jam. The kids and I play outside on the driveway with bubbles and sidewalk chalk every night and it's my absolute favorite. Fresh air is always a good idea! PS It was so windy when we were taking these pics... Couldn't keep my hair out of my face to save my soul!

Ruffle Sleeve Sweater + Must-Have Nude Sandals for $30!

Happy Tuesday! We've had a rough start back into our regular routine since celebrating Easter with the kids. Lots of toddler tantrums over here! I guess the lack of sleep and too much sugar was a bad combo! Yikes. 

Anywho, this ruffle sleeve sweater from BooHoo is the cutest! It looks thick, but it's actually light weight and I'm wearing a white tank underneath. It's perfect for this spring weather when it's sunny and beautiful out but still has a bit of a chill in the air. It's also on sale for $22! Yippee! I seriously can't get enough of the color and the ruffles. So much fun. 

These white jeans are from a couple years ago, but I will link similar ones below. And of course I paired this soft, neutral outfit with my go-to nude sandals! These are a favorite of mine and are $30 from Target! They really are so feminine and go with everything. 

My clutch and statement necklace are both old, but will link similar styles I am currently digging below! :) (PS loving this statement necklace and this clutch sooo much!) My Nixon watch is currently sold out, but I am loving this watch. Swooning over this thing!!! Isn't it so pretty??

Styling my Kids + My Fav Shops

I finally got some pictures with TJ in them! Most of the time when I get pictures taken it is during the day on a school day. Which is why Tooth and TJ are rarely in my pics. Ha! Oh, and also my hubby hates it... So there's that. Anywho, I was excited when TJ was able to join us!

TJ is truly the best big brother any kid could ever ask for. He is the sweetest and loves these babies so much. I'm so glad our kids all have each other. I pray that they remain close throughout life and have this special bond forever. 

Blakely was teething during this little shoot so she wasn't thrilled about it. Poor thing. Molars suck!! :( I love styling these little kiddies of mine and the fact that TJ is into it too, that's just icing on the cake! People are always asking me if I dress him and NOPE. He truly has an eye for putting things together. Sometimes we go on dates together and go shopping. I love it! His go-to place to shop is Tilly's. And I love the price point!

I will link everything (or similar items) below. My jacket is from Francesca's from a few years ago. I love the sequin detail! I'm always so sad when I have to tell people it's sold out! Ryder is wearing mostly H&M, Blakely is in mostly Old Navy (her darling bow is from Loopty Loo Bows). Again, love the price points! Especially for growing kids who outgrow their clothes faster than I'd like sometimes. 

Pinch me. Is this real life. LOVE these three!!!
These two are best buddies!!! Ryder thinks TJ is the coolest.
This pretty much sums our relationship up. ;) Love him!
Always trying to teach me how to Snapchat. For some reason I just can't figure it out. Plus, I don't really get the point of Snapchat?!
LOVE this top! And I love this Kendra Scott ring!

Floral Printed Chiffon Dress

Another amazing find from Pink Blush comin' at ya! How fun is this dress? The colors are perfect for spring and I love shift dresses like this because they are looser, comfortable and realistic to wear with kids in tow. It's so soft and feminine. I get so many compliments when I wear this thing. 

You can't beat the prices at Pink Blush. It's guilt-free shopping! I paired this little number with neutral sandals (current fav for spring and summer!) and Rebecca Minkoff handbag (similar here and here). I wanted the dress to be the focus. But if you wanted a bit more of a pop to bring out the beautiful bright pink in this dress, you could pair it with these sandals. So fun! 

I originally discovered Pink Blush when I was pregnant because of their maternity line (you can shop that here) which I loved. In fact, I may or may not still wear a couple maternity tops from Pink Blush that I just can't stop wearing! 

Pretty sure there is nothing better than feeling put together but feeling so comfortable and taking two seconds to get dressed in the morning. You can see my other two looks from Pink Blush that I've recently blogged about here and here
