back in action

{eShakti dress; Elle denim jacket (love this classic Gap style!); Tom Ford sunnies; Daniel Wellington watch}



I took an unintended “spring break” from the blog last week.

While I was out, I:

– Ate my weight in Peeps and jelly beans, originally purchased to make lots of cute Pinterest-inspired Easter arrangements like this one.

– Caught up on all the shows in my DVR; including several episodes of The Rachel Zoe Project that made me want to lock myself in the bathroom and cut bangs into my hair with manicure scissors. I promised my stylist I would never do that [again].

– Received a big shipment of gorgeous pink peonies at the shop, and fought the urge to bring them all home for myself. 

– Gave my growing laundry piles the side-eye, and wore the same polka dot skinnies so many times I had to watch my back for the fashion police.

– Developed an addiction to chocolate banana protein shakes.

– Celebrated a lovely Easter with family, complete with some of our adorable nieces and nephews, a neighborhood egg hunt, a funfetti cake trimmed in (more!!) Peeps, and traditional holiday Jell-O shots for the grown-ups. 

A special thanks to our friend and downtown neighbor, Mike, of Potthast Studios for snapping these shots on the fly this afternoon!
