Today's post is coming to you later than normal because one of my best friends finally had her baby on Wednesday & I spent the greater part of last night staring at him and not thinking anything about this! Lately real life has just been taking over and I'm not mad about it!

As for this look, Piol Dress contacted me again about designing another custom dress with them and I couldn't refuse! I know florals for Spring is hardly groundbreaking or out of the box...but a custom made for my measurements & coloring floral skater dress is never something to turn down! I didn't think anything could top my first custom Piol Dress, but this one takes the cake!

In other news I'm doing a complete closet overhaul this weekend. I think receiving this perfectly fitting dress in the mail just made be realize how many ill fitting things I'm holding onto for ridiculous reasons!

What's Spring without flowers?
Whether they're in your garden, in a vase or on fabric in your home decor there are endless possibilities...

Don't have a garden? That shouldn't stop you from planting flowers. A potted garden like this works on patios, decks, balconies, anywhere!

Now THIS is a Spring Awakening! I know it's not for everyone, but whatever style you prefer floral drapes always work!! A pop of color on the chair pulled from one of the shades in the drapes really makes this look come to life.

If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw me share a mirror pic of this outfit last week, but I loved it too much to not share it here too! I've had this (faux) leather skirt in my closet since last September & sadly this is only the second time I've worn it (see the first time here!)! I almost forgot I had it & it's partly because it was hiding in the bottom of my "dress drawer" that I barely opened during the cold months of Winter. I'm happy to say it has now found a home at the top of the pile & I hope I can wear it a couple more times before it gets too hot! So far both times I've worn it have been with silky blouses, but I'm searching for the perfect crop top to pair it with next!!

Have any high-waisted skirt styling ideas? Leave me a comment!!

On Friday I showed you some of the nail polishes Aerie sent over from their new Beauty for Real Collection & now I'm sharing a few of the makeup products!! Anything called a Glowstick is definitely something I want to give a try, especially since my skin is in some desperate need of a healthy glow after this long winter! This super easy-to-use bronzing & luminizing cream is great to achieve that rosy cheeked look now and even more perfect for when I want that shimmering "I spent the day by the pool" glow once the Summer starts!

  2. Apply aerie Glowstick in South Peach (c/o) to apples of cheeks and blend with fingers. Using bareMinerals California Bronze Palette (c/o) apply The Ocean View to hollows of cheeks and around hair line. Set makeup with Bare Minerals Mineral Veil (c/o).

Pale pink, almost sheer, nails are not something you see very often around here, but when this polish from Aerie showed up I couldn't get it on my nails fast enough. I wore it alone for a few nails (& loved it) then I decided to step it up with a little bit of pink & green geometric nail art!

My Lilly Pulitzer for Target Picks

Never did I ever think I'd be including Lilly Pulitzer in a post, let alone doing an entire post about her! That is until I saw the Lilly Pulitzer for Target Collaboration Lookbook & I nearly died. It is SO good. Not going to lie, the number one thing that probably turned me off about Lilly Pulitzer was the outrageous price tag so now that I can pick up a couple of her signature bold prints at a fraction of the cost I'm a happy camper! The collection hits the stores (& online!) on Sunday April 19th, but I thought I'd share my favorites with you today!

I'll link all these items once they become available on Sunday, but in the meantime check out the entire collection here so you can make your own wishlist!
