Springtime Sales

April showers bring May flowers…I hope. This rain is seriously killing me today. After a gorgeous week spent inside the office, I was so looking forward to getting outside this weekend. Instead, I’m testing out the new photo swap Snapchat filter to entertain myself. First world pains. The good news is that there are tons of sales this weekends as brands try to get you pumped for spring. Check out the best below:

Delight of the Day 3/7

It’s no secret that I adore Lauren James. I have multiple dresses and their seersucker bow shorts, and I wear them as much as possible once Easter arrives. Their newest dress, The Landry, is at the top of my wish list for spring. I love the girly scalloped edges combined with pastel seersucker – so sweet! And how cute is this video of the dress?

Valentine’s Day Ideas

Valentines

I seriously cannot believe that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It feels like I just put my Christmas tree away. (Well, maybe I was a little behind!) Yikes. Well, whether you’re trying to drop some hints for your boyfriend or buying a gift for your friend’s anti-Valentine’s Day party, my pretty in pink gift guide has you covered. Is it just me, or does all this snow have you hoping for extra chocolate this year?

New Year’s Resolution: Work Out More

workout

I always struggle with New Year’s Resolutions. I like a clean slate as much as the next girl, but I don’t see why January 1 has to be the new beginning. Plus, I typically keep indulging in Christmas cookies until mid-January (then start again once Girl Scout Cookies arrive in March), so it’s slightly hypocritical for me to pledge to work out more and eat better at the beginning of the year. However, being the planner that I am, I’ve been ordering cute workout gear in preparation. It also serves as motivation. What are your workout essentials?

Winter Getaway

1535512_10152400347346949_2564902976211978200_nAfter an amazing Christmas (and entirely too many carbs!), I’m feeling slightly spoiled that I also get to go on vacation, but good things come to good people, right? The Boy and I went to the Riviera Maya last year for Thanksgiving (obviously loved it), and we’re headed there again! It couldn’t come at a more perfect time now that our second summer seems to be passing and the forecast is in the 40s. Brr!

While I should have been busy packing, instead, I have been looking through our pictures from last year and making plans for our latest adventure. Oops! So, one day away from the trip, I’m frantically searching for all my bikinis and hoping two-day shipping pans out.10460414_10152400348706949_2365394065801061898_n Browse through below to see my winter getaway must-haves!

Delight of the Day 11/16

Anthropologie mug

Last year, I swear every Basic in the world had this Limited Edition Monogram Mug from Anthropologie. I searched everywhere, but they were sold out instantly. Cue devastation. Thankfully, the people at Anthro knew what a gem they had on their hands, so they’re selling it again this year! At only $10, you can buy one for you and for each of your besties as gifts. Can’t wait to see this on everyone’s Instragram!
