Current Crush: Zebras

Zebra Mode
Thanks to Modocat.com I’ve been obsessing over zebras lately. I just adore the Zebra Print Top shown above and have yet to decide if I need it in white or black. (any suggestions would be truly helpful lol) Add to that my oldest daughter has decided the theme for school shopping this year is animal prints and well you get the picture. We’ve both been having a lot of fun window shopping online for cool looks and as of now anything with a zebra print is topping our lists. While black and white is a bit of a staple concerning such I have to admit that seeing blasts of pink and turquoise in the mix is fun too!

Got a favorite animal or print? Do share 🙂

Wordless Wednesday: ScottCakes

Hmm I’m really not good at the ‘wordless’ part but my girls just LOVED the pink cupcakes… I mean ‘scottcakes’ they had while in Provincetown last week. They tried the iced mini cakes and then went back for seconds to enjoy a soft and dreamy regular one. YUM! 🙂 If you visit the town and you find yourself on Commercial street and you wonder how dare they put up a poster touting THE BEST cupcake… so much so that they find no need to offer any additional flavors? Well try one and then you too will be in the know. lol

 

Treasures From The Bay

We just got back from Cape Cod this past weekend and it was honestly the best family vacation we’ve had thus far! (and yes we’ve done Disney lol) The weather could not have been more perfect, sunny or beautiful. The water was deliciously warm and I am so delighted that we are making this a yearly family tradition. As big animal lovers, visiting the seals and whales in their natural environment was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Spending the day in Provincetown was another highlight thanks to some unique shops and galleries. One of my favorite spots was Wild Rice… a boutique housing vintage jewelry as well as gorgeously vibrant prints shown in the picture above. I bought a convertible skirt with a navy blue polka dot print on one side and purple flowers on the other. Love it!!! I can’t wait to see what other pieces the store holds for me next Summer.

What do you find yourself looking/shopping for while on vacation?

Current Crush Thursday

Yay! I am so honored to be co-hosting this week’s Current Crush Thursday!  (thanks DanielleAs usual I’m finding myself drawn to nature quite a bit. I’ve already professed my love for leaves and trees and now my eye has turned towards butterflies. They are fluttering all over the community and the lake… my kids and I can’t help but be in awe of their colors, gracefulness and beauty. As with most things in nature, butterflies translate rather well on just about anything… dresses, sandals, bags and even jewelry!

Enjoying Simple Treasures

Enjoying Simple Treasures

Truth be told I am quite a tree hugger. I just love their form in nature, art and even jewelry. This week has been full of gorgeous sunny days and I’m loving the sway of the trees near the lake when playing with the little ones. I invite all to take a minute and enjoy something simple like a tree, the breeze, a smile, perhaps a photo… your pick!

If you pin then feel free to click the tree to view images I considered ‘A Thing of Beauty’ and go ahead and follow/repin/link etc. 🙂 I’m always happy to do the same.

Have a beautiful day!

Beach Bum Planning

This week is all about planning, packing, sorting, listing, cooking and more for our trip to Cape Cod. The kids are so excited and all I can think is how this is starting to feel like a full time job. Truth is I am really excited for this trip!  Nothing spells out fun quite like quality time in the sun for me and I do believe this will be a very memorable family trip for the kiddos.

When my husband was younger trips to Cape Cod were tradition for a few years and so he decided to try and set such in motion for our own family. Along for the ride will be our 3 kids (ages 9,4,2) as well as my Mother-in-Law. She has already called and given me her list of items that she will be bringing along plus recommendations for what I should pack. 😉 We both are old school and plan our lives on sticky notes, index cards and other forms of paper. I’ve come to realize that as wonderful as an iPhone may be with scheduling apps and calendars etc. I truly love writing things down. Recently I was introduced to an amazing collection of life planners, stationary sets, recipe cards, calendars and more! Consider me smitten and also kicking myself for having not ordered my planner before now lol! Go check out her awesome goodies:

Do you have any Summer travel traditions?

Current Crush Thursdays

This week I am so excited to share my crush! I’m not sure how it happened… all of a sudden my pinterest account absolutely adores stairwells. Are stairs a crazy thing to crush on? Perhaps. I have to admit it was a bit of a shock to be so engaged by them.  However, you have to agree that there is something magical about where they could lead…no?
