Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!

Ok, so it has been raining here for LITERALLY a week straight! Monday most of my town was flooded and it took me an hour to get home, when my drive is usually 15 minutes! Roads were closed, streets were knee deep with water, and I literally thought I wouldn't make it home. We are still experiencing rain today, but tomorrow and Friday look sunny and dry!! YAY! Below are some things that have been my essentials this week. Thank goodness I bought rain boots a couple of years ago, they have been lifesavers this past week.

Golf Umbrella
These are significantly larger than your average umbrella. My dad has so many of these, I swiped one a couple of years ago and its been the best umbrella.

Hunter Rain Boots
I don't have this color, but think these would go with everything! I love these!

Banana Republic Trench Coat
Love the classic look of this trench coat.

Purchases of the Week

Happy Friday Y'all! I hope everyone has a great weekend. My parents and sister are coming up to stay with me this weekend and I can't wait! We are going to do some much needed cleaning and rearranging and I am so looking forward to it. Here are some things I bought this week. I have been looking for some reasonable, mid heel, solid black wedges for months. And I found some on Piperlime that I thought I would try out. I also ordered a lighter pair of "bell bottom" style jeans. I have a couple pairs from previous years, but they are dark wash, and I have been wanting some lighter ones to try out. Now all I need is a new summer bag and some fun dresses and shirts, and I will be ready for the season.

Coach Lovelies

I was perusing Coach's website yesterday and came across several things that I want for Spring. Don't worry, I have added them to my ever growing wish list, and hope to purchase some of them really soon. I did pick up a new planner. My previous one bit the dust this weekend. She literally split in two! And those of you who know me well, know that I am a planner, and am organized to the point of mild insanity, so I had to get a new one ASAP! And my new addition is gorgeous. She is shiny and red, and I can't wait to get her! Below are some of my favorite things on Coach's website right now. Go take a look at all the fun Spring/Summer lovelies. Happy Hump Day!!

Time Piece

I have currently been searching for a new watch to add to my collection. I received the Michael Kors Horn Jet Set watch last year for my birthday. And it's lovely, but I have really gotten into Rose Gold lately and there are a few options that I can't stop thinking about. I am going to purchase one in the near (near) future, I just can't decide which one to get. . . Anyone have a Rose Gold watch and have an suggestions for me? Here are the ones I am contemplating.

Today is my Friday!! I am going to my parents for the weekend for my sisters baby shower and the Arkansas Derby. So I will see ya'll back here Monday! Remember, I am on twitter and usually post once a day, so you can keep up with me there.  .

There is something about his print that I have been drawn to lately. You probably couldn't tell from my wardrobe, but I LOVE color, prints, and patterns. I love bright and cheery clothes, and this pattern encompasses that. It's fun, bright, and has this summer feel to it. It makes me want to pack my bags and go to a island and just get away for a while. This print was seen in some fall fashions, but it is now everywhere for spring and summer. Next time you are out shopping, look for this pattern or a tribal pattern. It will instantly bring you into summer and add some fun to your wardrobe. Here are a few of my favorite ikat finds.

The Short of it

The weather this weekend was fabulous! I even got a little sunburned sitting outside having lunch with some friends. I can't tell you how excited I am that warmer weather is here. I love being able to meet friends after work and sit on a patio and enjoy the weather and their company.
About two summers ago, the only thing you would find me in would be jeans and a tank top. I wasn't much of a dress girl, nor did I like shorts. And yes, I was miserably hot and that's probably why I never really liked getting out. But I have slowly turned my spring/summer wardrobe into only dresses, skirts, and shorts. And I am so happy I did. Don't get me wrong, I do occasionally wear jeans out in the evenings if it's on the cooler side. But for the most part, I live in dresses and shorts. Last year I happened across a brand of jeans at a local boutique that I adore. I really should have bought two pair. I literally lived in them all summer. And I plan to do the same again this year. Although I am going to add a couple of new pairs to my wardrobe, so I don't wear out my faves. Shorts are mostly seen as casual, but you can also make them a little dressier. Below are a few of my favorites.

These are the shorts I bought last year, and love!

White Hot!

I am the first to admit that I am not a fan of wearing white. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing white on other people, I just don't like it on me. When I have ventured to wear white, I am notorious for spilling something or bumping into something dirty and ruining my outfit within 10 minutes of putting it on. I am seeing so many really cute and trendy fashions this season with white coordinated into them, that it is making me want to give white another try. We will see if I actually take the plunge. With these great outfits below, there is a good chance I probably will.
