the friday five

the friday five with pink ray-ban aviators, ysl rouge volupte lipstick, j.crew floral photo tee, j.crew laser-cut midi skirt and chloe drew bag in cement pink M Loves M @marmar


After my PINK AS A NEUTRAL POST today, I thought today's Friday Five would be a great way to show off some of my favorite blush-colored items! First of all, I can't remember if I've talked to you about the CHLOE DREW LEATHER CROSSBODY but I've been wanting it for soo long. When I saw it came in the cement pink color I basically was sold. I have a little bit of convincing to do, but it might be the perfect post-taxes splurge/anniversary present/early birthday gift! I really really love it!

I saw someone wearing these PINK AVIATORS in LA the other week and they looked so chic! I feel like they'd go with everything and look super cool in an all-white outfit. What do you think?

A midi skirt is always a good choice in my book, and this LASER-CUT CIRCLE MIDI SKIRT is super pretty. The laser-cut details adds some edge to an otherwise feminine style.

I've been looking ofr some tops that aren't button-ups, and aren't too basic, and this FLORAL PHOTO TEE is really fun! It's a great casual piece but can totally be dressed up with a skirt.

One of my co-workers and I can talk non-stop about lipsticks and bags, my two favorite things! She was telling me about this YSL LIPSTICK IN CORIAL JALOUSE and I can't wait to check it out in person!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

pale pink as a neutral

soft pink sweater with distressed james jeans M Loves M @marmar
I feel like I've been accumulating so much pink in my wardrobe these days. First, it started with this dress, and then I got this blouse, and now this sweater. This sweater has been such a comfy piece during the transition of seasons {I actually wore it before here and here}. I love that pink can often be a great neutral- it's soft, feminine and yet not too girly. Pink goes with dark colors, just as easily as light ones. I paired this sweater with these DISTRESSED JEANS and the SNAKESKIN SANDALS I can't live without. I know I love a pair of shoes when I have to switch around some posts because I'm over-featuring them!

This weekend Matthew and I are kind of laying low. We have a joint baby shower on Saturday. It's actually the first I've ever been to, so that should be fun! Sunday I'm planning on getting things done for the week so it's not too crazy. I feel like I've been so behind since my Austin trip. Working on the weekend sounds like the worst thing ever but sometimes you just gotta do it! Please tell me you guys have some fun plans! I'll live vicariously though you!

dresses for Easter

March 26, 2015

printed dresses: one . two . three
textured dresses: one . two . three
maxi dresses: one . two . three

other favorites:


Can you believe it's almost April? That means Easter is right around the corner. Every year, for as long as I can remember, I would always get a dress for Easter. For the majority of those years my mom picked the dress out for me, and then with me, but now that I'm an adult {gosh sometimes I hate saying that!}, I love picking the dress out myself. It's a nice tradition, though, because 1. Easter is probably the most important holiday in my church so it's important {to me at least!} to look your best and 2. It's a dress you can wear all season long! This year I'm torn between getting a pretty and feminine printed dress, a versatile textured piece, or a flowy maxi. I love all of these ones above, especially this blue floral number!  I think it would be great  for a May wedding we're attending. Do you have a favorite of the ones above?
