Wallflower Dress: PB&J Boutique (few sizes left) | Beaded Necklace: Maeson Ford | Necklace: Etsy | Pumps: Nine West (I can’t stop wearing these) | Watch: Michael Kors

I wore this to our Easter shenanigans and got tons of  compliments. The lace detail looks like wallflower to me and it is so lovely (I believe the actual brand is called Wallflower too) Oh and this dress is 50% off! I added this white beaded necklace for a white on white look that has all the craze about this season. I am loving it! For you brides to be, I think these white dresses are perfect for you! I will try to d o a crushing on series for those on the hunt for more white dresses. I have four weddings coming up this summer so I know for a fact there are brides everywhere on a hunt.
I hope you all are enjoying your week. I am so excited for our weekend plans. Today is packing day and getting my ducks in a row. Plus I have a shopping date with my blogger babes and a floral open house tonight. Thanks for stopping by babes!

Black Overalls: Topshop | Eyelet Top: Forever 21 | Shoes: Steve Madden | Watch: Michael Kors | Lip: Nars 

I was a little skeptical about the overall trend but this one sold me. I especially love that these overalls don’t look like your average denim overalls from high school but are BLACK! I wanted to pair these overalls with something different so I went with an eyelet boxy top that I wear non stop. The truth about this top is that it won’t last more than a few washes, typical Forever 21 quality, but I don’t care. This top was only $18 and I am sure I have gotten my moneys worth already. I went with these Steve Madden Tallness that I think go perfect with black. I basically color blocked with the black overalls, white top, and brown shoes. I believe I rocked the overall trend in a different way and loved it. I am wanting to try some short overalls next like these.  Let me know what you all think about overalls? I would love for you to tag me in any of your overall put togethers. 

Happy hump day lovelies! Only a couple of more days to prepare for my birthday trip. Excited for where hubby is taking me this year! I have been a couple of times before but its always special going with hubs. Especially since it is his first time! Be sure to follow along on snap chat (dederaad) & Instagram.

So lately, I have been very picky about the comfort of my sleep. A little weird, I know, but PJ sets play a big comfort in my nightly routine. I think of Pajamas like I do when heading to the gym, a cute outfit always makes me feel better. Now that spring has approached us, it is time for me to put up my winter pjs and bring out the short cool sets! I have been crushing on pj sets lately and my I think I have fallen most in love with this chiffon piece. I kept all the spring options below $70 and that seem the most comfortable.

I am pretty sure I have sleep on my mind since we just redid the bedroom with new sheets and duvet (Belgian Flax Linens). It took some Ted some convincing because of the price but after a night in of him sleeping in these sheets, I haven’t heard a complaint since. I am pretty sure he is loving the new set as much as I do. New sheets and a new pj set just give a feeling of a fresh start and its perfect for this time of year!

Tee: Brick Street Co. | Blazer: Mural (similar) | Pants: Vince Camuto | Shoes: Charles David (on sale)

We all have those favorite soft tees that we love. The tees that we can’t wait to throw on when we come home from work or to wear on the weekends, but why not wear them to work? Throw on a blazer (very reasonable priced) and some trousers to dress up your weekend wear to an office look. Add some pumps, I went with black to match the writing, and you are set to wear your tee to the office! I especially think this tee by Brick Street Co is appropriate for you working women who love coffee, because in reality, coffee comes first. ESPECIALLY on a Monday after a holiday weekend. I maybe starting my second cup.

I hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend with your loved ones. Easter came so early but I actually loved it! It was like a spring kick off, my favorite time of year as you know! A season full of spring dresses, bright colors, events full of love, and happiness all around. I hope you all enjoy your Monday getting back into the swing of things and grab an extra cup of coffee for me 🙂
