Happy Friday! One thing I absolutely love it s good wrap dress. I don't wear them as much as I would like to (possibly because it is so difficult to come across a great one). But y'all, this one right here is it! It is also quite possibly the most flattering dress I own. With the feminine flutter sleeves to the tie at the waist with the ruffle details cascading down, every inch of this dress is pure perfection. It is also a great piece for all of  you breastfeeding mamas out there. As far as the fit goes, stick to your regular size for this one. In this particular brand, I usually go up a size since it is European, but I had to re-order this dress in my regular size after finding out that it does run large (wearing a US 2 for reference). And of course I have to mention that it is under $100 :)

Something else I'm wearing in this post that I feel deserves some attention are these cognac leather + chambray wedges! They were one of my purchases from the big Shopbop sale last week, and I have already gotten more wear out of them than I ever imagined I would. They have somehow gone with just about everything I've worn this week! And they're extra comfy too. The size options are limited right now since the sale just occurred, but I feel certain they will be restocked! I'll be sure to let y'all know when/if they are.

I hope y'all are gearing up for a great weekend! Do y'all have anything fun planned?

Thanks for stopping by!
Delightfully Yours,

Happy Wednesday, Y'all! I just typed Tuesday and had to correct myself to Wednesday (clearly not quite with it this morning haha). Today's look features the most gorgeous cold shoulder top I've ever seen. I mean how lovely is the floral detail around the open shoulders?! It's amazing just how intricate the floral detail is. It is probably one of the prettiest designs I've ever seen on a piece of clothing. Something else that I love about it is that it's basically wrinkled proof. A pet peeve of mine is being wrinkled. It didn't start to bother my up until about a year ago, but I get so paranoid when I look like a wrinkled mess. Clearly that's something I need to get over haha. I'm always steaming my clothes, but it's something with getting Madeline and myself out the door and into the car that just makes me wrinkled and wondering why I even steamed my outfit. Anyways, this top takes care of that! As I said, it keeps a wrinkled, effortless type look in the fabric so it's great if you're a Mama chasing after a little one all day. It is so gorgeous, under $100 and also comes in white. I love the way it looks paired with a white skirt and also denim shorts.

I hope y'all are having a great week! I'm so excited that this week and next week are my final two weeks of school. There's SO much due between now and next Sunday, so I'm stressing a bit, but I simply can't wait for a break from it all. It will put me half way through my program, and I will finally be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel with the first year being behind me. 

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Delightfully Yours,

P.S. There's yet another great sale to mention this week. Tory Burch has started a huge spring event! Save up to 30% off depending on how much you spend by using the code SPRINGEVENT at checkout. I'll be sharing more of my favorites tomorrow :)

Madeline: Dress (Local boutique) // Ruffle flats

Happy Tuesday, y'all! I hope y'all had a happy Easter and are having a great week so far! Today I'm sharing a few snaps from our Easter. My Mama and I found this gorgeous dress for Madeline at a local children's boutique. I immediately knew that I wanted her to wear it in her two year pictures and again on Easter. It really is the sweetest little dress! I then found this gorgeous ivory lace dress for myself that I'm more than obsessed with! I knew that it would coordinate with Madeline nicely, as well :) This dress is so flattering and such a great fit! I absolutely love the dainty lace flutter sleeves and the ruffle detail in the front. It was the perfect dress for Easter, and I know I'll be wearing it more throughout the spring and summer. How gorgeous is it for a bride-to-be?! It would make the perfect bridal shower dress! I purchased these gold tassel pumps to finish off my look, and they are quite possibly my favorite pair of pumps that I've ever owned. I love how the tassel detail hangs down the back, covering the zipper. They come in four other colors as well.

We had such a fun Easter! We began the day at church, celebrating our risen Savior. Later on that evening, we went over to my grandparents house for an Easter dinner, but first, we had to have an egg hunt. Madeline had been talking about an egg hunt all week and was more than thrilled! She found the golden egg, and got a fun surprise for it. She had the best time!

I hope y'all have a great Tuesday!

Delightfully Yours,

His light shines in our hearts...


Happy Easter weekend, Y'all! This is a time of year that I love for so many reasons. First off, it occurs during my very favorite season. Madeline was only four days old on her first Easter two years ago, so it brings so many sweet memories to mind for me in that perspective. I also love the weather this time of the year. I love how colorful everything is getting. I love the gorgeous blooms everywhere. Everything feels to show of newness, and can't that seem like just what we need after coming through the winter season? I know it is always a fresh feeling that brings a sense to beginning again. This brings me to my absolute favorite part of Easter: Jesus Christ my Savior who died and rose again. A love so great and unimaginable that I find myself saying, Lord, how could you love me this much?! That is my favorite part of Easter that carries on with me throughout the entire year, not only this weekend and on Sunday. 

I decided that this weekend would be a good one to share this post I have been thinking of for quite some time now. There are some things that I read in Scripture, and I become drawn in to the awesomeness of what I'm reading. All I can think of is just how long ago this was written, but goodness is it ever so prevalent in our lives today. This passage gets better and better for me each time I read it. The passage is 2 Corinthians 4. I think about Paul writing this as he kept his faith and trust in the Lord, knowing that his God was bigger than everything going on in his life. I'm just going to share a few verses from this passage with y'all and how I've thought through them. I hope they touch you in a way as they have touched me. 

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ.

I think about this light. The very one who created the universe and spoke light into existence is the same one who fills my heart with light...just enough of it to show me the light I need for the step of life I'm currently on. Light always overcomes darkness. Think about it! When light shines into a dark room, the light will always overcome the darkness therein (John 1:5). When I allow God's light into my life, I instantly feel a beacon of hope and guidance take the place of any dark and uncertain area. I am so thankful for the his light that shines in my heart, the light of the one who died for me. 

2 Corinthians 4:7

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

I absolutely love this verse. I think of the little things that happen in my life. Little things that happen here and there as they bring me encouragement, and I know they were sent from God. They are always reminders to me that God is bigger than everything going on in my life. These little instances that occur are more like God whispering to me "Everything will work out and is in my hands. You just wait." I think back on this time when I was about half-way through my pregnancy. I remember dealing with some personal things that had me so torn and all I wanted to do was sleep as I felt so hopeless. I remember sitting there in Madeline's nursery, crying out to the Lord. It was at that moment that the most beautiful sun light I have ever seen flooded her room and shone on her crib. I felt a sense of hope and knew that everything would be okay.  I think back on it, and it still brings me comfort today. That is just an example of the power of God working in my life that I have hidden away in my heart. I have stored it in "jars of clay" as it always tells me of the power of God.

As I was reading this, I was curious as to why Paul spoke of clay. I decided to do a little bit of research myself, and what I found out is so interesting. I was reading about it as it is used for pottery and found out that it can be stored for long periods of time. It never goes bad! I read that long ago Chinese potters used to store clay in jars for their next generations to use. With just a little water added, the clay is good to go again! How true is that to our lives?! I can be feeling so down and with just a little water (i.e. praying, reading Scripture, etc.) I will feel renewed. And as far as storing "treasures" in "jars of clay"? I will hold on to these instances in my life for years and years to come.

2 Corinthians 4:10

We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus. so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.

This just makes me continue to think about how grateful I am for my Savior. He died for me, so that I may have the gift of eternal life. I strive to show the life of Jesus through my life. He is alive and he is right here with us, working in our lives for our good and his glory. We may not always understand what he is doing but it is such a comfort to know that he lives...he is my light and my salvation and the stronghold of my life (Psalm 27:1). I want to always carry around his death in my heart, knowing that I'm saved through the blood of Jesus Christ yet show that he lives and is just as powerful now as he was in Paul's life years ago. 

 2 Corinthians 4:15

All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

I think about things happening in my life. I will pray for specific things, situations or people. I will see them being answered in the littles ways and can't help but give all the thanks and glory to God. I am constantly reminded that God cares about every little thing in our lives. Nothing is too big and nothing is too small for him. I have several close people in my life who I know I can trust and always depend on to pray about things with me. When I see them answered, even in the smallest ways, I can't help but tell those praying with me as well. This is just an example of how the grace of God can reach more and more people, ultimately giving him all the glory.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 

Wow! That's all I can say when I read this and the power of the message these verses give. I can only imagine the day when I get to see Jesus in heaven, face to face. Our eternal glory with him will far outweigh so much that goes on in our lives here on earth. Though he died for us, he lives! We may not be able to see him physically, but we must fix our eyes on him (what is unseen) and remember that he is the stronghold of our lives. 

I thought this weekend would be a great one to share my thoughts on this passage that I have enjoyed so much. To wrap things up, I just want to say how a relationship with my living Savior has changed my life. Though he is unseen, I know he is there and I fix my eyes on him. The little things he does throughout my life that I "store in jars of clay" continue to bring me comfort today, tomorrow and for the years to come. He lights my path with just enough light for the current step I'm on. I give thanks to him for the many ways he is working things out for me and Madeline. Even through I may not fully understand at times, I trust in him as I know he is working things out for our good and his glory. I am so thankful for my living Savior. He is risen!

Happy Easter, Y'all!

Delightfully Yours,

Happy Thursday, friends! I don't think I have ever been so in love with a dress. I purchased this gorgeous eyelet, ruffle hem piece to take to the beach with me this summer, but I simply couldn't wait until then to share it with y'all. I mean how gorgeous is it?! From the eyelet design to the asymmetric ruffle hem, it is just complete and total perfection. I also love this gorgeous shade of royal blue. Being 5'2, it is not always easy finding longer dresses to fit me. What's so great about this one, however is that the sleeves tie! As you can see, they're very forgiving, so the dress can be tied up for petite gals, or tied longer to accommodate the taller gals. It's under $100 and one dress you need to have in your closet! It runs true to size (wearing a US 0 for reference). I think it is the perfect piece for going out to dinner, a tropical getaway a spring or summer wedding...the options are endless! Oh and it twirls pretty nicely as well :) 

I hope y'all are having a great week so far and are getting ready for Easter weekend! I always love this weekend for so many reasons (check tomorrow's post to see more of why). Until then, don't forget to check out yesterday's post to learn about the huge sale currently going on! It's so good, and you don't want to miss it. 20-25% off lots of amazing designer pieces. 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Happy Wednesday! Today's post is featuring one of my all time favorite outfits, along with the details on a HUGE sale event! Scroll down to find out the details on the sale + see my favorite sale picks (there's some amazing things on sale!). But first off I have to spill the details on this gorgeous white lace peplum. Can y'all believe it is under $60?! I absolutely love how feminine and gorgeous it is. You simply can't go wrong with white lace. I chose to wear a white bandeau underneath for added coverage, but it can easily be worn with a white cami underneath for total coverage. It's one of those tops that can be paired with so much! I also see it being a great top to go with countless pairs of shorts. I added one of my favorite accessories to the mix...this statement necklace. It's under $40 and such a great statement piece. 

Now for some details on the huge sale:

Shopbop is having an unbelievable sale...the event of the season! This sale beats the sale from a few months ago by far, because you can save on any amount that you spend, unlike the last sale where you had to spend a certain amount to save. Some amazing designers like Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Loeffler Randall and so much more are all included in this sale. Remember this favorite dress of mine from Monday's post? Yep, it's on sale as well :)

So here are the details: The sale runs from today through April 14th. Hurry hurry if you've been eyeing a certain item you want, because sizes are selling out fast as this will most likely bee the last "big" Shopbop sale of the season. Enter the code EVENT17 at checkout to save 20% off of orders under $500 and 25% off of purchases over $500. So as I said before, you save no matter what you spend! I'm listing a few of my favorites below, and a list below that of some staples in my closet that y'all have seen me wear on here recently that are all on sale. 

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5
6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11
12 // 13 // 14 // 15 // 16

What I've worn that's on sale:

Lace Hem Tee (now available in a dress version!!)

I'll share an update of what I purchased as soon as I shop the sale! What's your favorite? 

*Shopping update: There are sooo many cute things! As promised, here are the things I grabbed up in the sale. These brown + Chambray wedges (OBSESSED!), this gingham dress, this navy dress, this top and this tee shirt dress (just like the shirt version I have been loving since last year).

Delightfully Yours,
