Pretty Pastels

Happy Easter Weekend!

I hope you have a fun weekend planned! The bird and I are hosting my family in Ireland this week and this weekend we are off to... Barcelona, Spain!

And today, I am linking up with Long Distance Loving for some pretty pastels:

I am loving that blazer!

I will leave you with some fun weekly links I spotted recently. Xo

Egg decorator app by Stella McCartney (think a fashionable virtual potato head)

• Target's 15 must-haves for Spring, including this mint bag and these cute flats!

Jetsetting to Barcelona

The bird and I are so lucky to have another set of visitors coming to town! My family comes in on Friday for their 1st visit to Dublin!

This weekend we are headed off to Barcelona for 4 days! I am so excited to visit Spain for the first time!

Happy Easter Week!

Every year Easter always sneaks up on me. Either its because its right after my birthday or because it seems like it lands earlier and earlier every year.

Nonetheless, I have some lovely little Easter links to share with you today:
Easter goodie bags

Cutest egg cake pops

If you've been following along here or Instagram, you know we just had friends in town.
Our first visitors!

And this week, my family comes to visit us here in Ireland!
Such an amazing week of friends, family and fun jetsetting!

That being said, I have lots to share with you about our recent travels.
On the blog soon!

Spring or not

So I hear Spring is around the corner... I know some of us are a little behind with the weather.

But I can pretend and dream, so wish away I will:
one :: two :: three :: four :: five :: six :: seven :: eight

Florals, flamingos and stripes in shades of pinks, whites & mint.
One of each please.

Head over to Long Distance Loving for all the other Spring wishlists.

Chambray + Lace

I have been inspired by my new chambray shirts and keep trying to figure what to tie them with, like here. I need to be more brave and creative.

So I'll start with a little outfit inspiration on the blog to see where that gets me :)

I am loving the nude and chambray color together. And need to get some trendy white polish on my nails!

My friends, the bird and I are off to Edinburgh, Scotland today for a weekend adventure!

Any last minute suggestions?

Green Friday

St Paddy's weekend is upon us... more importantly my birthday weekend! And this year, I am blessed to be able to celebrate my St Patrick's Day birthday in Dublin, Ireland! Should be fairly mellow ;)

Utility Wear

I don't know if its because Dublin is always cold and jackets are definitely a must whenever leaving the house, but we have an array of great options here at every store.

Back at home in California, you could really only buy a jacket a couple months out of the year. After that, they are replaced with swimwear and flip flops.
one // two // three

The utility coat (what I like to call the Hunger Games jacket) is a trend I am quickly falling in love with. I love the Zara one and almost purchased it the other day! And the Ted Baker one also come in a pale pink, found here.

I am also partial to the ankle bootie these days and love these utility looking boots to match the jacket:
four // five // six (similar here)

Gearing up for the birthday weekend and St Patrick's Day! Xo

Its my birthday week this week! My birthday is on Sunday, the 17th, aka St. Paddy's Day! It should be a fun time here in Dublin for my birthday this year! ;)

Plus, I have one of my best friends coming into town for the festivities! Beyond excited!

And today, I have some of my favorite pins of the week for you:

lovely kitchen of white, dark floors and pop of stripes

White on White

A favorite new trend popping up this spring is white and white on white and more white. And even if you follow the white wearing rules of labor day & memorial day, that's just around the corner!

Here are some fabulous looks in white I am drooling over:
white on white via

white nail polish via

white blazer & top via

shades of white via

 white sweater & brown belt via

And for good measure... loving this white framed wall:

I don't think I'm clean enough for this wall and maybe not even the all white look,
but they're both so gorgeous!

Shoe shine

It is actually a lovely little "spring" day here in Dublin, Ireland. The sun is out and the high today is 48! Things are looking up! There may be rain the forecast the rest of the week... but who's counting!

The sunny weather has me thinking about spring... and what better way to dream than with a bit of shoe shine!
Ankle straps: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4
Shiny Flats: 5 // 6 // 7 // 8

Loving these gorgeous metallics this spring!
Which is your favorite?
