wednesday wants - madewell

It is worth noting that Madewell is one of my favorite stores!

It can get a little expensive for my price range, but when I get an opportunity to treat myself, I love to indulge!

For this week's Wednesday Wants, here are the five items I'm dying to get off of Madewell's shelves and into my closet.

I would love to have a white blazer for a professional look going into the warmer months. I think this one is the perfect choice for the job.

There's nothing like a light and breezy sweater for transitioning into spring days. And I just love to add neon to my look.

Put those together and you have this fantastic sweater!

I'd love to add some lace looks to my collection, and my boyfriend likes to remind me of how much he enjoys when I wear yellow. So I feel like this is a piece that we BOTH can enjoy!

Polka dots are popping up everywhere this season, and I've been dying for a fun patterned pair of jeans. This pair seems like the perfect choice.


I'm loving the eyelet dresses that can be found in stores everywhere, but this eyelet skirt is just adorable. 

Basically, I have to have one!

Now what do you think about Madewell? Are you craving any items from their latest arrivals?

wednesday wants

As I had mentioned in my first post, I'm really into making lists. I've decided that every Wednesday I'm going to make a list of the 5 things I really want right now!

{Frock Candy}
I'm always looking for fun colored pants, and I'm loving floral for spring.


Boyfriend jeans are the perfect relaxed choice for any spring weekend. I'm picturing this with a nice big sweater and a collared shirt underneath with my comfy Toms!

{Urban Outfitters}
 In addition to the fact I'm adoring the style of this dress, I'm really excited to rock some coral for spring.
I have to admit, ever since The Hills (I wasn't into Laguna Beach nearly as much!) I've been bitten by the Lauren Conrad bug. While Kohl's isn't normally my first choice for shopping, I'm LOVING her spring collection. Particularly this dress (which LC herself can be seen wearing in the April issue of Redbook)
{Michael Kors}
I never said Wednesday Wants needed to be practical. I already have a silver MK watch. But in a fantasy world where I'm rich, I have a second one in gold.

All of this writing as gotten me bitten by the shopping bug. Where's the nearest mall!? What are YOU wanting this Wednesday?

mint + mustaches

Sometimes, when the hectic daily grind can seem to be a lot, there's nothing like a relaxing weekend of not much that can make things feel just right. After a great night on Friday out with my friends Saturday and Sunday were much more low key. Saturday was spent relaxing in with my boyfriend and we (he) created the greatest little dinner time treat. We called them Buffalo Chicken Pockets.

There is something so simple and delicious about the combination of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, chicken, hot sause, and a fun array of cheese. It was really the perfect dinner for a Saturday night in.

Sunday was spent with my family as a celebration of my mother's birthday. Since I was just starting this blog, I wanted to show off my brand new Old Navy sweater. It's sporting polka dot and mint, both of which I'm very into right now. While hoping I would get the perfect "trendy" angle for a picture to feature my new frock, the best shot of the day is this:

Sometimes there's no better definition of "Sunday Funday" then an afternoon (into evening, my family likes to spend a lot of time together!) just spending some quality time with your loved ones. A number of things today have reminded me of how special and scared the bond of love is and while it may sound cheesy, John Lennon really did say it best.

All you need is love.
