Man this week flew by! I hate that everything moves in hyper speed as you get older. I mean we're already almost in MARCH. How crazy is that?? If we could just press pause for a second that would be awesome. k thx!

Read more below about what made my week great!

ONE / The Perfect Summer Hat
So I love straw hats in the summer and one on my favorite all time hats is back in stock(!!) It's also only $44 and really is a total steal. This hat sold out sooo quickly last summer so be sure to get it while you can. Totally worth it!
See it styled here and here.

TWO / The Challenge
So if you know me you know I love, love, love MTV's The Challenge. I've been watching it since it first came out (27 seasons ago) and I'm even in the process of re-watching old seasons on Hulu. It's an addicting show and there are also a good amount of people at work who are into it too. 
So we decided to make a fake office challenge and I'm secretly pretty hyped. We drew names out of a hat and I'm in the process of thinking of fun games to play. Think Minute to Win It type of challenges. Let's hope this goes well! So random to tell you guys, but that's totally where my mind was all day yesterday so I thought it would be fun to include!

THREE / Steve Madden Carson Heel
I've been totally obsessing over these Steve Madden heels. I don't know what it is about them but they are just so good looking! I was debating between the blue and the sand but after seeing these I think I've made up my mind :) How can you say no?

FOUR / New Lilly Pulitzer
I have a couple warm weather trips coming up and I'm starting to shop around for new clothes! I of course head to Lilly first because they never let me down. I currently have this fringe sweater in my cart just waiting to pull the trigger. Thoughts? I'm thinking it's the perfect spring/summer item . You can wear it with shorts or pants and you're good to go!

FIVE / Blogging Better Series
I just started a new series this week called Blogging Better and I would love to hear some topics you want covered over the next few weeks! This series is 100% for you guys so any input is greatly welcomed :) Feel free to comment below or email me!


Weekend Plans: Tonight, Andrew and I are out celebrating his birthday at one of our favorite restaurants in the city, Mercato. It's this amazing little hole-in-the-wall place that is super authentic and so, so yummy. Other than that, it's Oscar Sunday! SO excited. Every year I see all the Best Picture nominees (which is so fun) and I think The Revenant is going to take home the win!

Favorite Blogs: I love this look from Jess!! Oh how I want and n-e-e-d this red and gingham jacket!

Recent Purchases: Snagged the most comfortable and best fitting chambray shirt yesterday from J. Crew and I'm pretty obsessed with it. I've had a ton of chambray tops over the years but this is by far and away going to be my favorite one. Also waiting for this pretty gingham dress to arrive at my door! It's so so cute!!
