The Dresses You Need for Spring with Ann Taylor

Ann Taylor Gingham DressToday I am so excited to be partnering with Ann Taylor to share some of my favorite dresses from their new spring arrivals.  I don’t know about you, but when it comes to styling outfits for Spring, dresses are always my go-to.  It’s essentially one piece you can easily throw on, add a few accessories and you are out the door…and you don’t have to worry about pants! #winning  I typically don’t have much time to get dressed these days with two little ones, so I’ve gotten to where I am always reaching for easy every day dresses.  Ann Taylor is one of my favorite places for affordable everyday wear that still allows me to be pulled together and polished, yet comfortable enough to run around with the kids.

Sephora Beauty Insider Sale

I don’t condone hiding anything from your spouse…but when it comes to the number of points you have at Sephora, I make an exception.  Yesterday was the start of the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale for beauty addicts Rouge members.  If you aren’t familiar with the sale, let me fill you in.  It runs from April 13-16 for Rouge members, and then from April 20-23 for all Beauty Insiders and allows for 15% off of your purchase for Rouge and VIB Members and 10% off for Beauty Insiders. To qualify for a Rouge membership, you must spend $1000 per calendar year and to be a VIB, you must spend $350 per calendar year.  You can also sign up just to be a Beauty Insider, which is free and will grant you access to the sale.

It’s a great membership to sign up for as you can earn a point for each dollar you spend, and then redeem those points for travel/sample size products.  If you aren’t a part of the membership, it’s time to get with the program (literally!).  You can sign up here. (Go to ‘Register’ in the top righthand corner) The Beauty Insider Sale is a great time to stock up on those items that you frequently use, or any items that you’ve been wanting to try.  Yesterday I stopped by to pick up a few things and thought I would share what I got!

Art Tour

Life on LaderaIt has been a year and a half since we have moved into our house.  We doubled in size from our last house and essentially started from scratch on our furniture.  This was the first house that was truly “ours” together, so I wanted it to resemble more of my our style. 😉 One thing I knew we desperately needed was art as this house has a lot of walls!  There are definitely a few spaces that I am still working on, but today I thought it would be fun to take you on a little art tour to showcase some of the pieces that we have collected over the last 18 months.

Spring Styles with Ann Taylor

Tie Waist Wrap Maxi SkirtToday I’m so excited to be partnering with Ann Taylor to share some of their new styles for Spring!  I worked in the corporate world for a few years before I became a mom, and Ann Taylor was always one of my favorite places to shop for workwear.  While I mostly work from home now, I still have occasional meetings throughout Fort Worth where I want to be a little more dressed up.  I want to feel polished and pulled together, yet still be comfortable at the end of the day when I have a 2 and 3-year-old all over me. 😉 I love finding pieces that have multiple uses and allow me to take my look from weekday to weekend, and I love how Ann Taylor always seems to achieve that goal.

Something Sweet with Maggy London

Maggy London Hazel I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…Spring is definitely my favorite season.  Not only because of the warmer weather, but also because of all of the events that seem to fill up our calendars.  From birthday parties, to showers, to dedications and even to Mother’s Day brunch, there are so many events that call for a special occasion dress.  And anytime that I can find a dress that will work for multiple occasions, it’s always a bonus!

EMD Skincare Review

EMD Skincare EMD SkincareOne of my favorite aspects about blogging is getting to test beauty products, and if you know me, you probably know that I’m obsessed with skincare.  I have done a few skincare line reviews on the blog already and typically when testing out a new line, I like to wait 30 days before deciding if I’m going to do a review. However, within the first few days of using these products, I was hooked and had already made up my mind.Read More

Off-the-shoulder Top Under $50

There are few things finer in life than a top under $50… and when that top resembles a very similar style to one of your favorite designers, it’s pure gold!
I was recently scrolling through the Nordstrom website and came across this top.  The off-the-shoulder design and detail down the front totally remind me of my favorite dress ever.  When I got this top in the mail, I was really impressed by the fit and quality, so #sorryimnotsorry if  when you see this top on repeat all season long. It is such a steal, and currently it is 40% off!
