Today’s fun highlights:

  • Can you believe that I was thisclose to sending this skirt back? What was past Katie thinking? This skirt is obviously a winner…and has pockets…duh! ;)
  • The Husband bought me this beautiful gray purse for our third anniversary this month (leather is the traditional 3rd anniversary gift). His extensive research was…stalking this blog. And he nailed it, because I absolutely love it! It’s a keeper, and he’s a keeper!
  • And if you’ve been eyeing this purse (and my other two ones just like it in red and yellow)…I can’t recommend it enough! Perfect size, soft leather, and no logos. And did I mention it is 30% off today? Go go go!
  • This weekend, I’m driving up north to have lunch with my mom (hopefully my car decides to make it this time) and getting packed and geared up (aka buying all the magazines) for our trip to Ireland in one week! CANNOT. WAIT!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Today’s fun highlights:

  • All I can say folks…is TGIF!
  • No other words of wisdom from me today…I mean, do I ever really have words of wisdom for you? Dad jokes, yes, of course! But words of wisdom? Nahhhhh.
  • And also I am newly addicted to House of Cards again and need to keep watching. Did you guys know that I am the SLOWEST TV binge watcher ever? I’m only on the second season, because I tend to get distracted by….ooooh everything else in life! So no spoilers please! :)

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. A perfectly priced tassel scarf for this spring and summer!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Loving this layered striped look from Jillian. So perfect for spring!
  3. These striped slide sandals are classic and perfect for slipping on and heading into summer. Oh, and the price is great too!
  4. I am the worst at responding to emails (and blog comments for that matter), so of course I thought this New Yorker article on delayed email responses was HILARIOUS!
  5. The cutest little tie skirt ever (in a pretty yellow and an everyday black)!
  6. Loving this sherbert colored stripe tee (and so affordable!) for summer, especially with a white midi skirt or denim shorts!
  7. This commercial might be two years old at this point, but The Husband shared it with me this week, and the message is timeless, apparently, so I’m sharing it with you too. I can’t tell you too much without ruining it, but funny how we’re all in this together, right?
  8. How cute and special is this striped tassel throw? Perfect for a pop of color in your living room or bedroom!
  9. Can you go a whole week of only wearing dresses? I mean, I probably could…especially if they were all from J.Crew (or Target)! ;)
  10. A denim jacket in every color imaginable (seriously, there are 12 different colors/prints)? Yes, please!

What do you do when your mother nicely hems a dress for you? You promptly manage to not featured it on the blog foooorrrr…I don’t know…maybe 8 months? #whoops

But look Mom, I’m wearing it now! ;)

This beautiful olive green dress used to be this maxi dress (last seen here). Though I loved the way it looked as a maxi dress (so Grecian, right?), I knew I would wear it much, much more once it was safely above my knees.

Because while these giraffe legs are great and all, they make lots of things difficult. Like walking (in general), but specifically walking while constricted by the fabric length of a beautiful maxi dress.

So Mom, olive you a lot for hemming this dress and saving me from myself/legs. Oh, and for about a billion other more important reasons and things.  <3

ps. These Old Navy d’orsay pumps look like a million bucks and are super affordable (they do run big though, as a warning)!

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I can almost guarantee that these beautiful Gap printed espadrilles will sell out…because they’re affordable and gorgeous!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Jessica from Here & Now is back to blogging, and I’m so happy she’s back. Love this double stripe combo look, because the only thing better than stripes…is more stripes!
  3. These baby blue suede loafers are the prettiest things ever (and yes, Elvis probably sung that song about them).
  4. Victoria Beckham’s collection is coming to Target in April (April 9 to be exact), and the lookbook (here) was released last week! I’m actually pretty meh about the collection in general, though of course, I loved this bee print shirt, because I’m a sucker for an graphic animal print. What are your thoughts on the styles? Let me know in the comments!
  5. This purse was made for me…too bad I’m on a self-imposed purse-buying-ban. Le sigh.
  6. All the heart-eye emojis for this blue/white gingham dress. So classic and pretty!
  7. Trying the best brunch in every state? Yes, I’d like to make that my new bucket list! Check out the full list here, and see if you agree with their pick for your state! I’ve only been to the Indiana one once (though I have also tried and loved the Kentucky pick), and it was forever ago, so I guess I need to make another trip soon!
  8. I love the embroidered saying graphic tee trend and just might have to scoop up this navy tee!
  9. J.Crew created its own holiday for March 31…National Stripes Day! And you better bet your bottom dollar that I’ll be celebrating!
  10. Target has so many great new watches out there! I love this marble face one, this pretty floral print one, and this colorful striped one! And they’re so affordable that you could buy all three…you know if you have time on your hands! ;) #dadjoke
