Build your Ark, the flood is coming!

O.M.G....It is never going to stop raining here in good ol' Kentucky! I am pretty sure I should start looking for wood and collecting my animals because I may need to start building an Ark if this rain keeps on. I would love to see the sun shine, wear my fairly new RL sunglasses, and to not have to carry around my broken umbrella (thank you 30 mph wind for destroying my J.Crew really, I appreciated that!).

On a brighter, less rainy and miserable note, I have gotten some really cute pieces from The Limited over the past week and wanted to share! As I was pulling the pictures I had to stop and laugh-out-loud because majority of what I picked up is either white or cream. Oh could I be more boring? I just can't help it...I love neutrals!

First is this OBR (Outback Red, a casual Limited line) Blazer. I have already worn it three times over the past 8 days. Look awesome with my skinny 917 jeans and the cream lace tank (that you will see below), the white skirt, and with the cream lace skirt (all also seen below).

This lace tank is so beautiful on! It's is great alternative to a plain tank...because well it is still plain but oh-so dainty and detailed with the lace flowers.

Now THE lace skirt! Va-va-Voom is how I feel when I have this on. It's a little shorter than a regular pencil, but I am okay with showing a little leg (wink, wink).

I really like to wear the cream lace tank tucked into the lace pencil skirt. It almost appears to be a cream lace dress when paired together. Would've made an awesome Keeneland outfit, but I didn't make it out there this spring. The perfect topper is this mauve colored cardi.

I have a new found obsession with pencil if one light colored pencil skirt wasn't enough...I went and got this white sateen pencil skirt which can be worn with just about anything. I really hate wearing pants in the summer so I usually opt for a dress or a skirt. The heavy sateen is perfect for concealing your "delicates" but not to heavy for those warm 90 degree days that will (fingers crossed) be here before we know it.

FYI: Macys is having their infamous friends and family right now (25% off everything! Eek! Run now and buy some stuff!) so I could not leave the store without these now could I?

I knew you would agree! Happy Easter Everyone! I hope you took advantage of some great holiday sales this weekend.

Hello There!

Wow what a crazy four weeks it has been! I have started a new job, turned 30 (eek! can't believe I just said that out loud....I kid, it really doesn't bother me all that much), spent my birthday on the beautiful beach of Fort Lauderdale and it all seems like a blur. Life is good, I cannot complain. Other than the fact that the weather has been a bit of a downer as it is so up and down. Can a girl just get some warm spring weather? I have cute new things I need to wear!

One of my favorite stores, The Limited ran an awesome 40% off the whole store sale this past weekend and I snatched up some great sales pieces! Including this Trench featured in their national ads for $29.99! Say What?!
And this incredible lace skirt for $17.99!

I am also slightly obsessed with shoes from Aldo at the moment. I have to say that in years past I have hated their shoes and sometimes I still really have a hard time fitting into their sizes (come on Aldo can we just get a half can't be that difficult? All other brands out there do it) but now I could pick out at least 5 shoes that I think I cannot live without. These sandals I got a few weeks back started my addiction. They are AWESOME and worth every penny! I can stand 9 hours and my feet do not feel like they are going to fall off my body by the end of the day.

Awilda $70.00

I recently ordered these two new Aldo shoes and I am patiently awaiting the arrival of:


I really do love spring and spring shopping. Everything is light and airy, the fabrics are colorful and bright, it is just such a relief from the drag, blah winter blues. Keep a look out as it is Macy's friends and family starting next Wednesday! I hope to snatch up a new watch (like I did last year) with a little gold in it. You can also almost guarantee there will be awesome sales for Good Friday and Easter...then hold tight as Memorial Day is just around the corner. Ahhh Summer. How I can't wait for you to arrive!
