Happy Monday!

I hope you had a blast this past weekend. On my end, I spent Saturday at a Bridal Shower in beautiful and sunshine-filled Newport, CA. Newport is one of my favorite cities because of the weather, the ocean views, and the shopping. It was a glorious day filled with family and celebration. I spent Sunday at church and celebrating a friend's birthday at one of my favorite restaurants. It was definitely a fun weekend, but I'm heading into Monday feeling like I need a break from my weekend (Oops!).

Now onto the outfit . . . there is no doubt that floral print is the quintessential pattern for springtime. Personally, I like wearing floral throughout the duration of the year, but I especially LOVE wearing it when I have flowers blooming around me. The rosebuds and cherry blossom trees are starting to bloom around our city, and I can't help but feel a rush of joy every time I see a beautiful bloom in the distance. This floral patterned blouse is definitely a top that will get you into the springtime spirt. I'm planning on swapping the jeans out with a cute pencil skirt so that I can wear it to work!

Denim is definitely making a comeback. Of course, denim jeans never left, but overalls and dresses have been a fun twist to the trend these past few years. Overalls have definitely been the more prominent of the two, but denim dresses have been sprinkling there way into the denim scene. This under $30 denim dress was a fun find! It lets you try out the trend without breaking the bank. 

In other news, we are in crunch-time right now in the teaching career. I'm heading back to teaching today after our weeklong Spring Break. We have state testing to conduct and Open House to prepare for. To be honest, I'm quite stressed about it! There are so many things to get done, and the school days are dwindling! Whew, wish me luck!

If you follow me on instagram, you saw that I mentioned a few days ago that life hit our household *hard* last week. I wasn't planning on sharing what exactly happened. In fact, it felt too raw, too hurt-filled, and just not "blog worthy." 

After sharing our trials and tribulations with some family and friends over these past couple of days, I realized that we all need to be open and honest with each other. This blog has been my little community for 4+ years, and I felt as if I would be doing you all a disservice if I only shared the bright and shiny moments with you--because that isn't life. Sure, I love cute clothes and creating content, but I would never want someone to look at my blog and social media and feel as if I have it all together and am living the perfect life. 

 Also, after opening up about our situation, I realized just how many people had been through the same thing in the past . . . and they just never shared it. If this blog post could serve any purpose, I would want it to let people that they aren't the only one going through this. That in fact, most people have . . . they just haven't shared it. 

My husband got laid-off from his job. 

I know there are 10,000 things worse in the world than losing a job, but it is still definitely something that stings, hurts, and feels down right horrible. Not only was it so unexpected, but it just felt *cruel.* And honestly, these past few weeks have been scary, emotional, and full of tears. We're still not 100% where his path is going to be lead. Right now, that is just one big TBD. 

Life is definitely rough y'all, but I am grateful for people and family that help me get through it. If you are currently going through something similar, just know you are not in this alone.

Happy Spring!

We are welcoming the official first day of Spring with a rainy and cold day. Oh, the irony! If you exclude the arrival of allergies, springtime is my favorite season. I love the arrival of bright colors, blooming flowers, and sunshine filled days. 

I spent the last few days of winter curled up on my couch recovering from a nasty virus. This year has been ROUGH with keeping my immunity up. My students have been getting sick left and right, and I've been catching so many of their bugs and germs lately. If you have any tips on staying healthy, please help a girl out! 

Speaking of work, I love outfit planning when it comes to springtime. As I mentioned above, fun colors is one of my favorite parts of this season. It is no secret that one of my favorite colors to mix into my wardrobe is blush. This lovely polka dot blush and white blouse is beyond cute for work. I paired it with a navy pencil skirt but it would look just as adorable with slacks or jeans--depending on your usual work attire!
