Hey there!  Three more days until the unofficial start of summer...Memorial Day weekend!  I love Memorial Day weekend as it's not too hot here yet, but warm enough for all the fun outdoor summertime activities.  And if it ever stops raining here, we have plans to head down to the coast for the weekend.

Anyways, I pulled together this fun outfit.  I've actually just ordered the sandals and now own the tote.  And I must say that the tote is much cuter in person then Target's lovely online picture :)  I think the sandals are going to be so great for so many different outfits this summer.  I'm 5'5" and love a little bit of height with my shoes, but still like to be comfortable and not wear a huge, clunky wedge.  Can't wait to get them!  You can find more of my favorite fashion picks under my "SHOP" tab.

And one more detail before I sign off...Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale kicks off May 20 - May 31!  There are soooo many of my favorites 40%.  It's definitely worth checking out!

Have a good one!

Hip, Hip Hooray it's Friday!  Another crazy week behind us.  But I'm starting to wonder if maybe crazy weeks are just becoming our norm?  Anyways, did you see some of the one room challenge reveals last week?  Wow!  So, so amazing!  Today I'm sharing three of my favorites from three ladies that I have worked with on other blogging projects and are not only extremely talented in design, but genuinely sweet individuals.  They all happen to do a bedroom makeover and I'm totally blown away by their final reveals.  You can click the link below each picture for a full post packed with gorgeous inspiration, before and afters, and a complete source list.  I really hope to link up in the Fall and knock out my guest room or dining room.  Maybe joining will give me the push I need to get those rooms done!

Have the most wonderful weekend!

A Table For Mom

And just like that we are almost a week into May and getting ready to celebrate Mother's Day this weekend.  Much like most other holidays, food and gathering together as a family is such an important part of our holiday tradition.  I really enjoy setting tables and adding little special touches that make those food gatherings that much more lovely.

To set this table I used this pink polka dot wrapping paper from the Target dollar bin.  I pick up rolls all the time from there and I've used them in so many different ways.  The chargers and coral napkins are from World Market and the gray and white striped towels are from Homegoods.  They all pair so well with my favorite white plates are from Target.

To finish off the table I added colorful fruit and paired it with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.  Loving the pink, orange and yellow color combination.

I've found that it really doesn't take much, but the little details really make the celebration feel so much more special.  Gathering around a pretty table puts everyone in a happy place.

Wishing all the moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day!
