Happy Friday everyone! We made it! I’m not going to lie. I feel like I’m limping across the finish line right about now. What a week! It has been non stop around here and I’m ready to come up for air. I feel like we are way over scheduled this year, but I don’t know how to under schedule us. A topic for another day! As soon as I can pause long enough to write about it. ;) Aren’t these flowers gorgeous!? I snapped a picture of them at a stop light. It was a long one. :) Wild flowers are popping up all over San Diego right now and everything is absolutely beautiful. So colorful and green because of all the rain we’ve had. Nothing like Spring!

On to a little fashion to end our week! Did you all know that Nordstrom carries J Crew? Such a happy discovery for me! I do most of my shopping on-line these days and Nordstrom makes it so easy with their free shipping/returns that I’ll admit I get lazy and don’t look around at a lot of other stores. I love that they carry so many brands and right now they have so many cute J Crew items! This Metallic Linen Tee has quickly become a favorite go to for me. You all know how much I love a good tee. :) This top is comfy like a regular tee, but the metallic gold dresses it up a bit.
This picture doesn’t do it justice! Such a cute tee. My J Crew purse was a birthday present from a close friend – love it Katy :) – and it looks so cute with this top. (This tee comes in silver too and the purse also comes in a bright green and pink!) My favorite necklace looks really good with it too and is on sale right now!
Another favorite J Crew find is this beautiful Fringe Dot skirt. I love it with the metallic gold tee. This neutral look was really speaking to me! I can’t find the cream skirt on-line so it must have sold out! I’ll add the link if it comes back in stock. This skirt also comes in navy. SO cute! Wearing it with these shoes but in the summer this will look cute and casual with flip flops. I love clothes I can easily dress up or down!
J Crew also has a great tee with longer short sleeves. It’s fitted but not tight and comes in so many colors. Love the mint! And the green.. and the navy.. and maybe the charcoal. ;) I’m a bit tee obsessed because I live in them – especially in the summer. You know the story of the Ant and the Grasshopper? How the Ants work hard all summer to store food for the winter? That’s me in the Spring stocking up and storing all of the cute tees for the upcoming summer. Kenny should be so proud of me for thinking ahead like that. ;)
If you ever shop at J Crew you know that this Chambray denim shirt is one of their staples. I’ve had it for a while and love it. It has a really flattering fit and is so comfortable! It runs big so size down! I love how it’s fitted, but doesn’t pull in the chest like some button up shirts do. Sometimes I wear it tucked into a skirt.. sometimes tied at the bottom. I wore it last week with jeans and my new wedges.
The last time I was in Nordstrom I saw this darling outfit on the mannequin. I was so excited because I already had the shirt!
And the purse! (So cute in green too, right!?)
So really I had no choice but to get the skirt to complete the outfit. :) This berry print skirt is darling! So fun for this time of year! It fits true to size but is a little long on me and I wish it came in petite for us shorties. Those of you who have long legs will look amazing in this! I’m keeping it anyway because I love the print so much. Being 5″3 and a half (don’t forget the half) is rough sometimes. ;)
Two other J Crew finds. I tried on this lace bib pullover and loved it in the navy. It came home with me. I tried it on in the white and didn’t like it as much. For some reason the lace in the front looks better in the navy. I also tried on these J Crew cargo pants and really liked them! They didn’t come home with me though because I didn’t like them in the back. Totally not the fault of the cargo pants.. more my fault for eating too much junk over the past month. Ha! Such a disappointment because they were cute in the front – a perfect length and so comfy. I tried a bigger size but they were too big everywhere else. This face is my “shoot.. time to get serious again and work off the bootie weight” face. Baby Got Back was playing in my head. You can tell I’m not impressed with myself. ;) #toomuchbirthdaycake
Here is a pic I took a few days later when I wore the lace bib pullover.
The lace detail in the front is darling! Plus it’s light weight and perfect for this time of year. I’m so happy Nordstrom is carrying J Crew! They honestly have so many cute things in right now for Spring. (I got this skirt too and love it!) Huge thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post! With their great customer service, easy on-line ordering and wide range of brands and options they make it easy to love them. (Too easy my husband will tell you.) ;)
I’ll leave you all with a few favorite pictures from this week. Kole’s favorite part in Moana is when the crab sings “Shiny.” Moms.. have you all seen this movie over 1,000 times too? :) He has made up his own “crab dance” and it is seriously hilarious! After school if he gets all of his work/homework done he can turn on “Shiny.” Then he does his crab dance while the music plays.
Highlight of my week.
