With warmer weather approaching – although not soon enough if you ask me – I’m thinking of ways to look great while still protecting my skin… something sadly, I waited to do until I was in my 30’s.
So when I ran across this totally cute sunhat with the big navy bow, I was smitten.
Not only is this ideal for sunny days at the park and the pool, it just so happens that it would look absolutely fabulous with my H&M striped dress daily covet from yesterday!
Happy Friday bloggy friends!
I’m running late today… well, maybe this entire week.
But never fear, I’m back with my next daily covet. No surprise, it’s from one of my absolute favorite destinations for shopping – H&M!
This adorable blue and white striped frock is my newest obsession. The pleating provides some wonderful waist cinching and the cute, short shape is ideal for my short shape!
I’d love to pair this cute dress with hot pink satin bow flats or neutral sandals for my Easter dress. But who are we kidding? This could just as well be worn for date night with some peep-toe pumps or strappy sandals and a sleek clutch.
The possibilities are positively endless!
Here is the perfect bag for spring. The bucket bag has made a comeback and it seems I’m not the only one that would like to get my hands on this totally GORGE bag.
The Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag is wait listed. Imagine! Like it’s Hermès or something.
Well, it’s true and to be honest, I’d rather have this coated leather bucket bag than a Birken any day.
Both the black and tan versions have detachable wallets, which is obviously so convenient.
And both the black and tan versions have completely covetable interiors. I’m not sure if they are the same color, but it looks like one might be crimson while the other is more of a raspberry color.
It’s a good thing these are wait listed. It would take me a long time to figure out which one I want more!
A friend of mine manages a small and chic boutique here in Middle America.
This past weekend, I visited just in time to take a gander at the latest shipment they got in. And boy am I glad I did!
I have my eye on this amazing LBD from Trina Turk with cool cutouts and POCKETS! I’ve purged my closet of a few old or unwearable LBDs, so I’m thinking that this dress is just the number I should add.
As you all know, the only thing I like better than little black sweats are little black dresses.
You know I love all things turquoise.
So when I stumbled upon these Tibi ankle-wrap sandals, I was instantly smitten. They just scream summer to me.
Pair them with a slim pants, a cute sundress or even a body-con sheath for a night out. No matter what you wear them with, they will be the show stoppers for sure.
If there’s one thing that will be everywhere this summer, it’s crochet.
Crocheted bikinis, cover ups, shorts and tops are out in full swing.
And this adorable TOPSHOP crocheted shell is ideal for wear with jeans, shorts and skirts alike.
The fit is a little swing-like and the bottom hemline is “scalloped” along the natural lace line. I suppose if you’re tall enough, which I am not, you’d even be able to show a little bit of tummy – just enough to be sexy without being trashy.
It’s only early March, but I’m already thinking about the summer I’m going to spend by the pool with my three boys.
Why would I subject myself to this before spring even hits? Why would I subject myself to this at all?
You see, I’m on a major quest to look
somewhat decent fabulous in a new suit. And the new bathing suit is my motivator. I’ve promised myself a sleek new bathing suit, if I can reach my goals by the time pool days roll around again.
Oddly, searching out the best option to reward myself with has also been a huge motivator. It gives me a visual every day when I am scouring the Internet for the perfect suit.
So far, these two suits from Huit have been my faves. No surprise they are both blue too.
The tops are very structured, which I need because this mom of three boys rarely gets to just sit and lounge by a pool. Instead I’m getting in and out of the “deep end” and reapplying sunscreen and digging for snacks and whatever else my brood needs during the day.
So while the strapless versions of these suits are really adorable, you can bet I’ll not be removing the removable straps. Between the two (here and here), I prefer the boy shorts. In the past, this hasn’t been the best style for me because of my pair shape and short legs. While I can’t do anything about my short legs, I am hoping to eat, sweat and lift my way to smaller hips so that I can finally wear boy shorts with confidence.
We’ve got approximately three weeks until summer rolls around and I’m just one week into my 12-week plan to build more lean muscle and shed some baby-induced (ok everything-induced) pudge.
Wish me luck!
