OOTD: Stripes and Pink

I had my first riding lesson in 3 years yesterday and it was amazing! My new instructor is great and I remembered a lot more than I thought I would. I am very sore today, but I am very happy with my lesson!

Today I am wearing one of my favorite combos: navy blue, white, and pink. This is probably the color combo that I wear the most during the summer, and I am always looking for more pieces to add to my wardrobe!

I’m also wearing some of my favorite bracelets from Alex and Ani! I got my Cincinnati Reds bracelet a few years back once I actually started watching baseball (and enjoying it). After my horse, Lucky, died my parents got me this four leaf clover bracelet to remind me of all my happy times with him. My favorite one though is my “Sisters Forever” bracelet that I got from my little sister (although she’s not so little anymore!). It’s probably one of the sweetest things I have ever gotten and every time I wear it, I smile and think about how lucky I am to have such sweet siblings!

Finds of the Week: 4/21/16

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope everyone is having a great week. I’ve been busy studying for my last two exams of the semester before finals and trying to enjoy the beautiful weather! Here are some of my favorite finds/ articles of the week:

1.New 20 Dollar Bills. Most of you have probably already heard about this, but new $20 bills are being made with Harriet Tubman’s face on them. In addition, other bills will have pictures of women as well. I think this is very cool! Check out this article to learn more.

2.Monogrammed Linens. This Etsy shop has the most beautiful monogrammed linens. From pillow shams to cocktail napkins, they have it all!

3.  Face Masks. I just read this article from College Fashion about the best face masks for all types of skin. I have dry skin and face masks tend to dry my face out even more, so I can’t wait to try out the masks that they recommend for dry skin!

4. Robotic Horse Lift. Researchers in Saskatchewan are working on developing a robotic lift to help horses recover after fracturing limbs. Many horses can’t make it through recovery since they are so large and often develop secondary problems, so this has the potential to save many lives. Read more about this innovation here.

5. Here is a cute foal to make your Thursday a little brighter!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday, everyone! I am already loving today because it is finally warm in Ohio! I spent my weekend outside volunteering at a local park to clear honeysuckle and playing football, badminton, and baseball outside with Thomas (Check out his new blog here) ! To celebrate the warm weather, I’m wearing my newest Crown & Ivy find. Their new spring/ summer collection is flawless, I want to buy it all!

Here are some of my other favorite Crown & Ivy finds:

Dreaming of Warmer Days

With all the cold and snow, I’ve found that looking forward to the warm weather keeps me happy. All my favorite brands are putting out their spring lines, spring break is a short month away, and the weather might be warming up (it is supposed to be 60 degrees here on Friday, but we’ll see)! Now is the time to snatch up all of those cute outfits you plan on wearing over spring break (I’ve already started). I have put together some of my favorite finds so far:

I love the color of this J. Crew dress, it is perfect for spring (and it also comes in a fabulous green)!

It’s no secret that I love colored shorts, and these Crown & Ivy shorts come in the brightest variety of colors (I’m in love).

I love the scallops on this bikini top (and it’s less than $30!).

These BCBG sandals come in a range of colors (this one is my favorite), and would be a great addition to any shoe addicts collection!

And if you can’t tell that I love scallops, here is the perfect monogrammed bag for spring break from Marley Lilly (plus if you buy it now, you can get a free baseball cap).

I’ve been meaning to get a pair of Kate Spade Keds, but I haven’t been able to find a pattern that I really love. Well this has changed, I love these floral ones!

Spring will be here before we know it (at least I hope so)!

Stay Fabulous,

Julia
