Do you already have plans for Mother's Day? I'm so grateful to be this little girl's mama, and on Mother's Day all I want to do is spend time marveling at how amazing she is. I know her Mother's Day gift is going to be something she makes herself, which is so precious. I'm already tearing up thinking of the day when she goes from making me a gift to buying me one. Because that will mean she's not so little anymore. And I want her to always, always stay my little baby.

FLORAL MIDI DRESS: DEMURE FRONT, FLIRTY BACK

Spring Dress Floral Midi

DRESS: TOPSHOP | MULES: SAM EDELMAN old, similar HERE | SUNGLASSES: ILLESTEVA, exact dupe HERE | EARRINGS: J.CREW sold out, similar HERE

Last Fall we were looking for castles in New England and found the Crane Mansion, an enormous and beautiful estate that overlooks the Atlantic ocean and sits on acres of rolling green hills as far as the eye can see. We only made it through a small part of the estate last year so we decided to go back. My four year old, who shares my love of castles and expansive open areas, had so much fun exploring. I thought this floral midi dress with blooms in orange, yellow and turquoise set against pink was perfect for this backdrop. If you're curious about what I wore last Fall (hint, it's another floral number) you can see it in this post - which outfit do you like better? 

COLORFUL STRIPES: A-LINE MIDI DRESS

Colorful Stripes for Spring

I find myself heading to the park often on warm days and I think everyone else in Boston had the same idea this week! This colorful dress is the perfect outfit for any of my favorite things to do in the city - brunch at the Taj, strolling through the park, a little window shopping and a stop for a cappucino at Tatte, which is only a 5 minute walk from the Beacon Hill end of the park. All outfit details are linked at the bottom of the post!

FLOUNCY SKIRT AND KNOTTED TEE

 Flounce and Eyelet Midi Skirt


Full disclosure, I haven't brushed my hair and it's windy. Bad combination! If you can look past that, I am in love with this tiered flouncy skirt, which also comes in two other colors. It's so cute for Spring/Summer and black is the ultimate neutral so you can wear it over and over again. It's fully lined, doesn't really need to be ironed and the eyelet is so pretty. It also has pockets and is currently on sale for 25% off with code HOPTOIT. So hop to it! Outfit details are linked at the botto of the post.

PAISLEY MAXI DRESS & WHAT TO SHOP FROM THE BR SALE

Silky Paisley Maxi Dress

DRESS: BANANA REPUBLIC  | BAG: YOOX, also love the CLUTCH version | SANDALS: NORDSTROM | HAT: BANANA REPUBLIC | NECKLACE: J.CREW FACTORY

As you probably saw from my last two posts, I've been on a BR tear. I love their petite dresses, particularly their Spring/Summer selection. This paisley maxi is both pretty and supremely comfortable at the same time. The fit is really forgiving around the belly and lower body, really helpful since I have a few winter pounds to lose - I bought it in Petite XXS. There were a few pieces I waited to buy and I'm happy I did because right now everything on the site is 40% off - no exclusions, so it's time to shop!

I'm in a blue mood! Just a short post today to share my favorite blue things this month. This blue dot midi-skirt is so cute and a great piece for transitioning into Spring. I'm a total fan of midis and this one has everything I like in midi skirts - great fit for petites, lining, pockets, and of course, it's rich in color and texture. It also comes in an amazing ivory that I'm drooling over and you can grab either one (or both!) for under $80 with code LOTSTOSHOP.

Happy Spring! I'm so delighted that the sun finally came out this weekend. In last week's post I shared my perfect work dress and two won't-break-the-bank spring accessories to welcome the season. Now my head is in total vacation mode so I'm buy things that I can not only wear right now but also on spring vacation. This trench dress is one of my favorite finds for the month and it's now on sale for under $100. It also comes in the prettiest light pink, which I am totally drooling over.
