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

  1. This striped raincoat is the perfect piece for my spring wardrobe. Want want want!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Can’t stop, won’t stop loving red, white, and blue outfits…or Daphne’s outfits for that matter. Especially loving this winter-to-spring transition outfit!
  3. This floral print fit-and-flare dress will be perfect for all those spring and summer weddings that are sure to be on your upcoming social calendar!
  4. My new favorite Instagram account is this one (here) featuring comics about about a girl and her boyfriend and ALL the adorable “real” things they do. The one where she steals all her boyfriend’s clothes…is basically a biography of my life! ;)
  5. Another statement necklace never hurt anyone…like this wooden bead option which will literally go with EVERYTHING!
  6. This combination of stripes and crochet overlay is very classic-with-a-twist…and totally belongs in my closet.
  7. One night last week, I was looking for a quick, single serving chocolate chip cookie recipe that wouldn’t leave me with a dozen or more cookies to eat, and this one was easy and so tasty. Perfect for if you just want one cookie (or two or three…it actually makes way more than one)!
  8. I just want to look as classy and pulled together as the model in the first picture looks. Is that TOO much to ask for? ;)
  9. And just in case you DO indulge in that chocolate chip cookie recipe above (and you should), here are 10 healthy dinners that actually look really delicious to balance it out!
  10. And lastly, a pretty polka dot skirt to get you ready for spring!

24 Things From Loft I Wish Were Hanging in My Closet Right Now

loft spring 2017

I’d like to give a special shoutout to the 55+ degree days that we had this weekend in the Midwest, since it was perfect for peaceful protests, puppy walks, and parties! Which leads me to believe that spring is coming. Spring is coming. Spring is coming!

And it is bringing with it a fresh batch of new arrivals that are perfectly perfect for my closet. Especially the new pieces from Loft! The Spring 2017 collection features a whole lot of red, white, and various shades of blues, which is always a-okay in my book!

So, magic closet fairies…feel free to leave some of the below pieces in my closet. Thanks in advance! ;)

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Yes, those are bugs on my coat. That I put there intentionally….and I love them! It’s the easiest way to spruce up your winter wool coat, when you’ve worn it for the 1,000th time!
  • It’s Friday. It might hit 60 degrees here today…in January. I’m getting my hair cut this afternoon. And I’m trying to convince The Husband that we need burgers again tonight. Positive thoughts today, people…and hugs all around.
  • And even though I said last week that La La Land was only pretty good...that hasn’t stopped me from listening to the soundtrack on Spotify (here) on super repeat. Love the original songs!
    • And for those of you wondering what “super repeat” is, it’s when you play something over and over and over again until you drive your husband crazy. It’s definitely that.
  • This weekend, we’re celebrating our niece’s second birthday! It’s hard to believe that she is already two, and I can’t wait to celebrate with her, Curious George, and The Husband’s family. Happy Birthday, S!

So many good puns for this coat….so little time.

You come for the clothes, stay for the dad jokes…am I right? ;)

p.s. Raise your hand if you think I look like a mature, grown-up Spinelli from Recess…yes, the cartoon character from the cartoon show that ran in the late-90s. Okay, so everyone…excellent! That’s basically all I could think about as I edited these photos. I’m the coolest.

Today’s fun highlights:

  • It’s finally Friday! This was the first week in a long time that I’ve actually worked 5 whole workdays (woe is me), and boy let me tell you, it felt like it!
  • We finally saw La La Land this week, which I had apparently hyped up in my head to be the greatest movie ever. And let me tell you, I liked it…a lot, but it wasn’t the best movie in the history of time (that’s Princess Bride for those of you keeping track at home). Emma Stone is flawless though, the music is great and catchy,…and 2 hours of Ryan Gosling never hurt anyone. ;)
  • Tonight we’re going out for burgers and drinks with my best friend and her husband to celebrate his birthday, and then this weekend we’re staying in and catching up on some TV (2 solid days of football games, y’all) and chores. It’s one of our last free weekends for a while…and it’s suppose to be fairly cold….so my couch plus my puppy sounds pretty great!
