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 🙂

Current Crush Thursday

Yay! I am so honored to be co-hosting this week’s Current Crush Thursday!  (thanks Danielle) As 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!

Weekly Wonders: Summer Dresses

I suppose it was bound to happen… a pin board devoted to dresses that is. Summer is a mere 19 days away if we are going to be precise about it and yet the warmth of such is already here.  Therefore I have been given more than the permission I need to frolic around in beautiful, floral fabrics right?

Creation of a new board started when I was having a bit of fun over at Polyvore and came across the above VIVIENNE WESTWOOD ANGLOMANIA short dress. Immediately I was in love with the bright colors and simple design that made this dress seem like a staple for my Summer wardrobe.  However at $580 I’m going to have to put it to rest for the time being and search out similar floral designs that are more within my $$ range. Thankfully I found OASIS:

Floral Belted Dress $90

Vintage Rose Dress $145

Blue Floral Sundress $36

Placement Floral Dress $90

Oasis Paisley Dress $85

Aren’t these dresses charming? I can’t help but adore the splash of flowers and colors on each and how affordable they are too. For a limited time it appears that you can save even more with the following code:

How cool is that?  Have fun shopping!

Weekly Wonders

*Shoetopia & Urban Crochet* 

Well this week went by in a flash but I’m not complaining. Rain makes for a moody Sassy and with the sun peeking out today and promise of no rain for my Lion Run tomorrow I’m feeling pretty darn excited.

Throughout the week I have been dreaming about Summer and all clothes relating to such. With all the bright colors and prints that made their debut this Spring I’ve been hoping for an even bigger splash of color to trend for Summer sandals. You won’t see me disappointed by what is popping up and so I’m sharing my faves:

Tomorrow morning we book our first trip to Cape Cod and all are excited! This place holds some wonderful memories for my husband when he was a child. He seems quite eager to share this experience with our 3 kids and see if we collectively agree that this should be adopted as a yearly tradition. I for one am excited for some real beach fun in the sun, instagram shares and whale watching of course!

Do you have a traveling tradition of your own?
