so much j.crew.

this is the j.crew-iest of j.crew outfits i could put together i think. and tip toeing on the side of preppy for me, but i don’t hate it.

this dress is from a few years ago and the BEST. i actually had it in three colors at one point: navy, white, and a neon orangey/pink. i got rid of the neon one in an attempt to pare down my wardrobe (ha!) and i regret it so much. its such an easy dress to dress up or down (or wear as a beach cover up), and its so roomy and comfortable that a kid once asked me if i was pregnant while wearing it.

i need space.

i walked by this shirt in nordstrom a few years ago and i immediately bought it, no questions asked. if you know me, you know i’m not touchy feely and i literally need my space. also, i teach a class of stage five clinger 3 year olds, the shirt speaks for itself really.

easter dress shopping.


(easter circa 1991 with my mom and my mimi)

maybe (most likely) its just a southern thing, but picking out my easter dress has pretty much always been a big deal. obviously when i was younger, my mom got to pick. but as i got older, choosing the perfect dress was a very important task (gotta look your best for jesus’ big day you know).

growing up, i was always on a budget for my easter look, and that idea has definitely stuck through adulthood (i just ordered this dress and this dress for this year). below, i’m rounding up some budget friendly options for y’all ($50 and under), in case you’re in need for some easter outfit planning inspo!
