TGIF! Hope you’ve been well and enjoying the warm May weather (finally, it’s been a cool spring this year).

Here are a couple of recent outfits. The first outfit shows my love for camo. The lighter weight sweater is perfect for those days when there’s a slight chill in the air. I’ve shown a close-up of my personalized necklace with my daughter’s name. I love the script style and the fact that it comes in rose gold (or in white or yellow gold if that’s your preference). I plan on giving this necklace to my daughter as a gift for a future special occasion.

The second outfit was from Mother’s Day, my first as a mom! It’s been a lifetime dream come true and my baby girl is so sweet and lovely. My heart is overflowing with my love for her. I’m wearing my new J.Crew eyelet dress (I also have it in green) and my sandals matched the aquamarine and diamond earrings I received as a Mother’s Day gift. Aquamarine is my daughter’s birthstone.

Enjoy your Friday! xo

review of new goodies

Embroidered top in eyelet white (there’s also a black version of this top) & pull-on shorts in foliage green.

An overdue follow-up review of this post and I’m pleased to report that I loved the embroidered top and pull-on shorts. I ordered two sizes of each item, sizes XS and S. I kept the size Small because the XS was tight across the chest in the top and tight across my hips for the shorts. I wouldn’t say they are true to size because my postpartum size is in flux. The embroidered detail is well done and so colorful. The shorts are a joy to wear with the elastic waist but the material easily reads dressy. I highly recommend both. I also purchased the shorts in almost black.

Here’s a picture of my two latest shoe acquisitions. The dramatic flair slides are on trend for this spring and summer. Comfortable and true to size for both pairs.

Eyelet dress in warm clover and white.

Another follow-up review of this post. I had originally ordered my usual size 0 in the dress, but I could not button the buttons from the waist up. I returned the dress at my local J.Crew store and I spied the green dress in a size 2. Tried it on and I love this eyelet dress so much that I bought it in white as well (also size 2).

The full lining is sewn in, which makes for great dress construction because it helps prevents wrinkling and gives a nice shape to the skirt portion. The white color is not sheer at all. It has deep side pockets. The best part is that it’s nursing friendly. An astute comment made on my Instagram said this dress style was easy to dress up or dress down. I agree wholeheartedly, as you can see it looks casual with my slip-on sneakers (while trying on dresses at J.Crew, but I’ll be sure to wear them together at home) and it reads dressy with my wedge sandals below. By the way, how great is this shade of kelly green? So fresh for spring.
