Look What I Got: A Floral Top

Target Floral Top (here), H&M Capris (similar), Target Wedges (here), Michael Kors Watch (similar), and Gold & Red Chain Bracelets made by me:)

I'm a big fan of Target, so whenever I need to go to purchase something, I always stop by the Women's clearance racks because I never know what goodies I might find hanging there.  On this particular trip to Target, I spotted this colorful floral print top, originally it was $19.99, but I purchased it on sale for $13.98.  SCORE!  So, of course I bought it:)

Assateague Island

While my boys were on Spring Break, we flew to Maryland to spend time with my husband, and go sightseeing in Salisbury.  One particular day, my husband drove us to Assateague Island, located off the eastern coast of Demarva.  This particular island is best known for its herds of feral horses, pristine beaches, and the Assateague Lighthouse.

This week will be our last full week living here in Indiana, and it's so hard to believe my family and I moved here eight years ago.  My how time flies, however, soon we will begin the next chapter of our lives in Maryland, and my boys and I can't wait.  Although, we'll miss Indiana, we're anxiously waiting our move to Maryland:)  Until then, I'll be getting our things together and packing for our new move.  Maryland, here we come!

Mani Monday

Unfortunately, I had to cancel my nail appointment again, but I really wanted my nails done professionally, so I decided I would go ahead and go to another nail salon.  While there, I decided to go ahead and add a pedicure too:)  Since I'm a huge fan of the red nail polish, I went ahead and had my nails painted red and I loved how they turned out:)

Look What I Got: Floral Pants

H&M Top (similar), H&M Pants (similar), Nordstrom Flats (here), Chanel Handbag (here), ILY Couture Bracelet (here), and Michael Kors Watch (similar).

Recently, I've decided to step out of my comfort zone by buying a pair of floral pants.  Although, I purchased them last November, I never got a chance to wear them because it was to cold to wear them in Indiana at that time.  So, when I saw them hanging in my closet, I quickly dusted them off and put them on:)  Oh I forgot, they were only $25 at H&M too.

My Striped Tee

J Crew Tee (here), Old Navy Jeans (here), Nordstrom Toms (here), Louis Vuitton Handbag (here), and Michael Kors Watch (here).

Is it really spring yet?  I don't believe so in Indiana, because it's been mighty chilly in the mornings and the evenings.  Summer please come soon:)  Anyway, for today's outfit I decided to wear a striped tee I purchased at a J Crew Outfit several weeks ago, on sale.  YEAH!  So, I added a pair of skinny jeans, red Toms, my Louis Vuitton handbag and my Michael Kors watch.


Look What I Got: J Crew Outlet Haul

Last month I got a chance to visit the Rehoboth Outlets in Delaware, while there my husband and I visited the J Crew Outlet store.  Everything in store was discounted, plus we received an additional 50% off our total bill at check out.  SCORE!  So, I was able to pick up a blue maxi dress, a striped maxi skirt, a hot pink skirt, two striped tops, a wallet and two I Phone cases.  Also, my husband picked up several pairs of shorts, and a couple of shirts and our bill was only a little over $300, not bad for a J Crew Outlet visit:)

I'm so glad today is Wednesday, it means I have only two more days to wake up at the crack of dawn to get my boys ready and off to school in the morning:)  Guys, I miss the bus so bad, but my house sold so that's all that matters, right?  Anyway, I'm glad I was able to shoot some decent photos today, because it rained really bad.  Summer please come quickly, because the weather here is to unpredictable.
