Sale: BOGO Target Dresses


As Mary pointed out yesterday, dresses are a fantastic perk to warm weather dressing. 

Target is having a great buy-one-get-one half off sale on their dresses this week. Here are my favorite options:




I'm a sucker for 1 & 6 because they are nursing friendly. Which is your favorite?

A Picture Is Worth (No. 8}


By fashion contributor Mary.

There comes a point in springtime when the weather is warm and I start to think, "enough with the layers already!" I'm ready to put away my jackets and cardigans, and I start to look for tops that don't need a tank underneath to make them to be modest. I just want to wear one layer, because I can, because it's warm, and because fighting through multiple layers when my babe needs to nurse is an inconvenience.


Enter this week's inspiration image, which features a breezy and elegant shirt dress. Dresses are kind of the ultimate in one-layer outfits (there's not even a top/bottom overlap!), and are incredibly easy to wear. Just pair with neutral accessories, a classic red lip, and go.

Inspired: Braided {No. 3}


There is something about warmer weather that gets me itching to twist and braid my hair away from my face. Here are a few lovely images for inspiration:

I am sure I'll be pulling out the double twist (and single twist) gibson tuck soon.

A Picture Is Worth {No. 7}



By fashion contributor Mary.

This week's image is one of my favorites. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to recreate an outfit, only to be stopped in my tracks when I can't find items that look enough alike. Gorgeous pieces are sometimes too unique to duplicate on a budget.



Luckily, I found a floral jacket so similar to the original above that I've spent several minutes trying to figure out if they're actually the same jacket. They're definitely not from the same store, and I think they're not the same? Question mark? But if you told me one way or the other with any conviction, I'd believe you. It's a tough call.



jacket, $38.99 || t-shirt, $8.80 || pants, $24.99 || heels, $41.99 || bag, $39.99 || bangles, $7.80

Must Have: One Piece Swimsuits {No. 2}


One of the things I miss most about living near the beach is having a good excuse for owning 10 swimsuits. Not having an excuse to buy a new swimsuit in no way keeps me from looking for one.

I posted some great one pieces a few weeks ago, and was excited to find a bunch more good ones. Here are (more of) my favorite swimsuits under $50:



I think #1 is my favorite, but I kind of love them all.
