jumpsuits a plenty

Jumpsuits. So hot right now. Or are they? Well, they're all over sale racks online and in stores and I was a bit of a skeptic for a while (and can only fake laugh at so many, "but ... how do you go to the bathroom?!" queries) but now I'm sold. Julia's even jumped on the bandwagon and anything that Julia does - Phoebe is on board almost immediately (much to Julia's delight). Anyway, I thought I'd done a decent job of bookmarking a variety of styles but I obviously stick to jumpsuits with sleeves (although there are lots of cute ones tank styles) and wide legs (again - lots of cute slimmer cuts too!). So, let the party begin.

1. Blue V-neck - There's a reason I put this at number one - because it's my favorite. Hands down.

2. Printed Smock - another favorite. I've noticed smocked styles slowly creeping their way back into the trends and I'm all about it.

3. Short Sleeve Wrap Striped - I own this one and love it. It's comfortable, lightweight, and the pants don't drag on the ground which is a plus.

4. Tie Front - I saw this in the flesh and had Abe not been at the tail end of his Target rope - I would've tried it on. I'm loving the tied front trend and this is a fun way to incorporate it without worrying that you tied it too tight and suddenly your shirt's creeped up to a crop top. Not that I've ever done that.

5. Basic B- This has lots of great reviews and love how easy breezy it looks.

6/7 Ruched Sleeve // Green Version - I'm looking for a fancier jumpsuit to wear to a nicer dinner party in a few weeks and this might be just the ticket ... with heels? Yes. Tick-et.

8. Nordstrom Rack Jumpsuit - I was pleasantly surprised by the number of fully stocked and super discounted jumpsuits over at Nordstrom Rack. It was hard to narrow down a favorite but this was in the top few.

9. Ruffled Jumpsuit - If this wasn't so pricey - I might've moved it up to numero uno but Anthropologie isn't known for it's steals. But, it's pretty dang cute, right? Right.

Honorable mention to this fancy pants jumpsuit and dishonorable mention to this atrocity.

Also, upon writing this post I think I figured out that this is a romper (shorts!) and jumpsuits involve pants. I think.

Anyway, any other favorites? I was sitting next to a gal wearing the cutest blue floral number at the kids school play last night and it took everything in me not to ask her where she found it and I'm regretting my prudence big time.

Hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend involving glorious weather and steering mostly clear of the internet. This post included.

1. tgif, folks. We partied by having lunch at 11:08 in the am followed by a round of Dum Dums on the porch. Shots of milk after naps? We'll see.

2. B. Fike is back on the e-scene. Commence jigs and shots of notmilk because she's the best.

3. This is such a cool story about The Boston Marathon!

4. Simon and I started watching The Resident this week but I don't know how much longer Simon will be able to stomach it which is odd because he's mostly okay with the unrealistic shenanigans on Grey's Anatomy. The Resident is a little darker? grittier? something-er than Grey's Anatomy and I like it but can see where Simon's coming from on the, "this is a littttttle much" front.

5. Look at Target go -- stepping up their diaper bag game. I don't think I would've guessed that it came from my favorite bullseye.

6. I'm not a podcast connoisseur but if you enjoy a bit of celebrity news and pop culture - I'm a big fan of Jam Session. It only comes out every 2 weeks though which is borderline unacceptable - says she who runs no podcasts of her own. Also - language alert :)

7. The whole thing will probably be sold out by the time I publish this here post but if you like to e-window shop -- the entire Gal Meets Glam collection is worth the click. This is my favorite, I think. It's tough to choose just one!

Alright, Phoebe's got a birthday just around the river bend and I've done approximately no present/cake/anything prep so off I trot to look for a magic mirror - her easy breezy request.

Happy Weekend!!!

the usual

1. Another double instadip, another list of blips. As titled: the usual.

2. I'm going to admit that I woke up kind of excited to check out Target's latest collaboration (online) but the delay on the tall boots paired with the fact that the other boots (my personal favorite - even if they are marketed as mens) can only be purchased in store has me ... disappointed at worst. I'll survive and forget about it in three minutes - max. I do wonder if the stores will get cleaned out immediately? Probably. Target is killing it on the sandal front - Julia has and loves these and I convinced Phoebe that these are pretty much the same thing

3. About every other week I find myself in a dinner rut. We have our go-tos (I'm super guilty of falling back on breakfast for dinner at least once a week) but it'd be nice to spice things up a bit and I need to just keep Katie's website open all the time because she's full of great ideas - kid-friendly too.  

4. I read If You Only Knew this week and it was cute - a good one for the pool or the beach or the backyard perched next to the baby pool. I'm impatiently waiting on a whole lot of library holds including An American Marriage

5. Simon was gone for a couple nights this week and I plowed through all six episodes of Music City. I can't recommend it but I obviously binged it without complaint. If you need something mindless and reminiscent of The Hills etc ... this fits the bill beautifully.

6.  Just when I thought my undying love for clogs might be waning every SO slightly ... these pretty puppies had to come on the scene. Not in my size, sadly but how perfect are they? Very.

Alright, off to make donut muffins at Theo's request. Have a nice weekend :)

spring break

1. I hope no one tells my kids that other people actually travel and do fun things during spring break because we've done a whole lotta nada this week and it's been just fine. I've got the, "remember our Disney trip?" all ready to go in my back pocket if any of the kids ask (they won't, I don't think) and the weather has been wonderful and the pollen has finally floated up north so ... staycation or bust.

2. As mentioned before, my mom always finds the best toys for the kids and these are no exception. I'm proud of us for keeping them in their assigned container for well over a year which is pathetic but also ... miraculous.

3. I read and loved two books recently! I feel like I get to about the 76% point (thank you Kindle app) of a lot of books when I just can't bear another paragraph but I finished The Queen of Hearts and Now That You Mention It this week and if you're looking for mostly vapid beach ready bookage - you might like them too!

4. I've been up a lot with sick kids (the mercifully swift 24 hour bug that has to hit everyone on a completely different day) and have had some extra late night scroll time on my hands in between wash after wash and happened upon what looks suspiciously like a knockoff of Article's Sven couch? Right? I (whispers) don't hate it. One bit.

5. Long overdue! But, I had to thank you for all of your sweet comments + emails about my grandma. Her funeral was sad but a great celebration of her life and I appreciated all of your kind and thoughtful messages.

6. I've been reading and seeing how much my favorite fashion bloggers (although I believe the term these days is influencer) love these high waisted jeans and this is the first I'm seeing them on sale PLUS an additional 30% off. I'm tempted to try them on although I think I'm the last person in the world to hop on the high rise train. And I don't think they're trendy but I love finding t-shirts with slightly longer short sleeves (Everlane makes a good one!) and LOVE this one. I'm sure they won't but I'd love if they came out with a whole potpourri of colors to choose from.

7. Alright, we've got a fun weekend ahead hanging with Simon's college friends who are in town and rented a house with a pool along with breathing a sigh of relief that we finally finished the last of the house projects before we list said house (we'll worry about someone actually buying it -- on a later date). Yee haw.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter and are enjoying the Easter season!!
