Happy Tuesday, friends!! Now that Valentine's Day is over, I am in full on spring mode! The weather may be crazy right now, but I'm ready to say bye to cold weather. Yesterday it was 75 degrees and sunny here...so amazing and a fabulous touch of spring! Today, however, it's 45 degrees and rainy...not sure how it can go from such a drastic change haha. But I'm officially prepping my closet for all things spring. That includes maxi dresses, easy shifts, cute swimwear, sandals, statement earrings and more! I can't wait to start sharing all of this with you.

Since the weather was so nice yesterday, we went out and shop two spring inspired posts that I'll be sharing this week. But I thought I'd kick the week off by sharing some of my favorite new arrivals for spring. Let's get started, shall we?!

I'll start with the shoes. I purchased every pair I've included in today's post. Obsessed would be an understatement haha! I actually shot #8 for an outfit post yesterday. I fell in love with this pair. #8 is the prettiest scallop wedge sandal! It also comes in black and a leopard print (which is SO cute). They do run a tad large, so go down half a size! I also could not resist #12 and #13...the prettiest little scalloped sandal! I got them in both white and pink, but they come in a handful of colors. I was so excited to find #7, because they remind me of a much more expensive designer pair that was a HUGE hit last year! They're absolutely too cute!

I also own this yellow eyelet wrap top! It's the cutest thing!!! It will also be coming to Something Delightful this week :) It comes in black as well. These jeans are also a new purchase for spring. They're amazing! I love the distressed detail at the ankles. I'm 5'2 and purchased the size 26Wx30L, and they fit perfectly! I also want to mention this color block maxi dress. It's absolutely darling! It runs TTS. I can't wait to wear it once it officially warms up.

Well that's about it for today! What are you most excited to start wearing once the weather gets warmer?! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great Tuesday, y'all!

Delightfully Yours,

Valentine's Day 2019 + My Thoughts on Valentine's Day

Hello Friends and Happy Valentine's Day!! Of course on Love Day, we're wearing our favorite pom pom heart cardigans. Madeline always says reminds me that "hearts mean I love you!" So that is just another reason why I love them so much :) We have these cardigans in four colors, and we are usually matching in them. But this time, I decided to alternate colors with our looks, and I just love the way it turned out! I have the pale pink cardigan with lavender underneath. And Madeline has her lavender cardigan with pink underneath. Speaking of lavender, trust me when I say y'all need this this top! It's more than amazing and comes in five colors. It's longer in the front and in the back, and cuts up on the sides. The material is on the thinner side, so you can easily knot it in the front as I have here, or front-tuck it. It's just the best top ever and a great one to get you into spring. 

...

I also wanted to share a little message with y'all on valentine's Day. Basically, it's my take on this holiday, if you will haha. This morning, I asked Madeline why we celebrated today. She said, "Because it's a day to let everyone know how much I love them!". I thought her answer was so sweet. And so true! 

I feel like a lot people have hard feelings torward February 14th. And it is usually because of feelings from not having a significant other or a date planned tonight. When you look at the commercial view of the holiday, it is so easy to think that! Or maybe it goes much deeper than that for you, as the hurt comes from loosing someone very special to you that you would usually spend this holiday with. I'll be honest, I went through a period where I felt the same feelings on this holiday too. But being a mama has taught me to much more to this!

As many of y'all know, I'm a single mom. I don't really have anything planned for tonight, but goodness I wouldn't have it any other way!!! Madeline is my valentine, forever and always, so a chill night with her sounds absolutely amazing to me! 

Here's what I'm getting at. I want YOU to know today that you are SO loved!!! Don't ever let anyone make you feel otherwise. If this holiday makes you feel left out of the loop, don't let it! Think of all those around you that fill your heart and life with so much joy. Let them know just how much you love them today. Then, think of all those that truly love you. You are a jewel! There is absolutely no one else like you. You are unique and beautiful. Embrace that! Embrace yourself. Let your confidence shine through and be proud of who you are in Christ. That leads me to one more idea of love to celebrate today. And more importantly, this is one that is absolutely 100% worth celebrating every day! Yes, this is God's love for YOU! Someone who would give His only son to die for you! Someone who longs for your attention. Someone who will hold your hand through every single walk of life. Someone who cares about every little details in your life and is knitting your life into a beautiful picture that is unique for you. A life story that belongs entirely to You! And although it may be difficult to see at times, it is built on His indescribable love for you. So, so much to celebrate, friends!

You may be in a season right now where things just seem...slow! It may feel like everyone else has it all together and you're just sitting in the back seat waiting. Well, you just wait! Never underestimate what God can do in your life. But goodness does He love YOU so. very. much. Don't let the (silliness, to be honest) of this, what is portrayed to be, a "romantic" holiday fool you. There's so much more to it than chocolates, roses, a hot dates, etc. Think of all those who you have to love. Think of all those who love you. Embrace and love yourself, be proud of who you are in Christ! And most importantly, rejoice in His love for you! 

Well, that's my take on this Valentine's Day :) If y'all have anything else you'd like to add, I'd love to hear it! Just remember, you are a jewel, more precious than rubies (Proverbs 3:15)!

I hope y'all have a great Thursday!
Delightfully Yours,

Hello and friends and happy Tuesday! I hope y'all are having a great start to the new week. We had such a busy weekend, and I took yesterday to try and recover some. We drove back from Nashville on Sunday, and the drive was extra tiring! But we had such a good time! Myself, my mom and Madeline had so much fun exploring and basically eating our way through Nashville haha. We ate some of the BEST meals ever! I had also planned my sister's bachelorette weekend in Nashville, so I kind of flip flopped back and forth between my mom and Madeline and my sister and her friends to spend some time celebrating the Bride! :)  

Anyways, I'm SO excited to be sharing the most perfect Valentine's Day look with you all today. I basically look like a walking Valentine haha, but I'm not complaining one bit :) I absolutely love all things Valentines...pink and red, hearts and all things feminine and fun! There's so much to love about this look. 

Let me first start off with THIS DRESS! I mean, if it doesn't match the definition of perfection, I don't know what does. It is just the prettiest thing EVER! I adore this sweet shade of pink and the red bow is just the perfect touch! What's great about this dress is that the red bow is removable. So, after Valentine's Day, you can remove the bow and have a gorgeous pink dress. This dress runs TTS, but is on the longer side. I had it shortened about an inch and a half (I'm 5'2, for reference). But if you're not a pink girl, no worries because this perfect dress also comes in the prettiest blue with a navy bow and this gorgeous mint green with a white bow!

I have it paired with my favorite nude pumps and these adorable earrings that have my HEART (see what I did there, haha?). I also have these pretty earrings in pink. I absolutely love Kristina, the shop owner and designer of these earrings. They come in both clips and posts. I'll definitely be wearing these cuties after Valentine's Day :)

I hope y'all enjoyed this post! Do you have a special outfit picked out for Valentine's Day?

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Tuesday!

Hello friends and happy Thursday! I hope y'all are having a great day so far. We arrived in Nashville last night! I'm excited to do some exploring. This is my first time visiting Nashville, and I've heard so many things about how cute it is. I'm so excited! 

Today I wanted to share what is probably one of my last wintery look with y'all :) I actually shot this look a few weeks ago and decided I had to share it mainly because of this sweater. If you're looking for a lighter colored sweater that is SO versatile and will get you through the remainder of the winter, this one is it! I purchased it about two months ago and have gotten SO much wear out of it. I love how it is longer in length. I'm 5'2 and love that I can wear it as a sweater dress. It is actually even a little long for me to wear it as a dress, so I decide to belt it. I just love the way it looks! If you're on the taller side, it would look amazing paired with jeans or wear it as a tunic over leggings. There are so many options for wearing this sweater, and it's under $50.

I decided to pair it with the gorgeous scarf, that's on sale for $22. I brought out the pink in it by adding in these hot pink tassel earrings. These are the best things, and they come in four colors!

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends! I hope y'all have an amazing Thursday!

Hey friends and happy Tuesday! Today I'm excited to bring a little hint of spring to y'all :) I don't know about y'all, but I'm over winter! I'm ready to say goodbye to the cold and hello to all things warmer weather. We've actually had a nice touch of spring the past few days (highs in the mid 70s!!) but I know it's not here to stay. However, Punxsutawney Phil's prediction for an early spring has me excited haha! Here's to hoping the warmer weather will be here soon!

In the mean time, I'm planning on wearing lighter colors to add a hint of spring, while still keeping warm. One of my current favorite colors is lavender!!! I'm seeing it everywhere and simply cannot get enough of it. I think it's going to be one of the most popular colors for spring. I also believe it is one of those colors that looks good on everyone. 

I came across this darling fringe hem sweater and knew it would be the perfect pre-spring piece. The lavender and white stripes are just gorgeous! Of course I adore the fringe hem. It's under $80 and runs TTS :) I then found these gorgeous flower earrings to match my sweater. They're only $12 and come in three colors. They're light weight as well. I also am still so tickled over the fact that Madeline picked out these jeans all by herself. We were on a Target run, and I wouldn't have even noticed them. She ran over the table and grabbed these in both lavender and pink saying, "Mama I don't have pink or purple jeans" haha. I think they're the cutest things. I also shared Madeline's vest on my Instagram stories the other week and got SO many questions on it! It's the perfect amount of warmth, especially to get you into spring. I couldn't find the exact one she's wearing, but I did find this very similar one that's by the same brand :)

I hope y'all have a great Tuesday! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Delightfully Yours,
