Good morning all!

We are in scramble mode over here as we pack for our trip home on Friday! After 5 months of Dublin, we are off for our first visit back home! :)

I thought I would take a quick (& happy) break from cleaning and packing to share my favorite pins of the week! What a fabulous excuse for some Pinterest time!
outfit inspiration: summer whites

braided top knot

pretty typography: get it girl

inspirational quote: far better things ahead

This quote is such a good reminder for me at this time in my life. 

Keep smiling and looking forward to all that lies ahead! Xo

Blog date in Dublin

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. And you are enjoying your Memorial Day today!

I had the lovely opportunity to meet up with Laura from Styled by Laura this weekend. Turns out she's from Dublin... who knew?!

It was a very exciting revelation and it was so lovely to meet up with her. She's a doll!
We had such a fun night on the town! We had a delicious dinner and a few drinks consisting of champagne & strawberries!
Like these little pretties. How crafty are these 'watermelon' jello toppers?!

So happy to find a new friend in Dublin and looking forward to our next girl date!

Pinsday + Oklahoma

Happy Wednesday!

I wanted to join in with my favorite pins today and link up with The Vintage Apple.

So here are a few from the week:
chambray blue + white jeans + nude heels

chic + industrial entry

do what you can | inspiration

Which brings me to the second part of this post...

I have had a heavy heart this week for Oklahoma and the mass destruction the tornado has caused. Even all the way over here in Ireland, its been on the news constantly.

So I wanted to share this sweet post Lemon & Lavender put together on all the ways to help, near + far.
Prayers for Oklahoma

Please visit her post and know that every little bit from each of us helps. Xo

Travel in style

I had to share this recent purchase with you. Its only been sitting in my shopping cart for about a month+!

But thanks to its new sale price and a little encouragement from my lovely friend Jacin, I finally pulled the trigger on the pale pink one!
(on sale!)

Is this not the perfect pleated maxi dress you ever did see?! The emerald and coral colors are gorgeous too.

Oh, and I will most certainly be wearing this on the trip to ITALY we just booked! Beyond excited!!! This is a trip this girl never thought she would get to do.

Any suggestions or recommendations??? Pretty please!

Overalls: hit or miss

Ok... big debate over here today. Here are my arguments:

1. Part of me wants to run... skip to the nearest store and jump into a pair of these because I have been waiting my whole adult life for these bad boys to return!

2. The other part remembers how unflattering they used to be... and well, they just reminds me of the terrible fashion in the early 90s.

cuffed // skinny + white (unknown) // dark washed // floral

But with their modern spin and the fact that fashion always comes full circle, what do you think: hit or miss?

I have to say, doing the research for this post kinda has me sold. How cute are these outfits?!

Mother's Day gifts

Mother's Day is just around the corner: May 12th. Actually, in Ireland, Mother's Day was March 10th. But the weird thing is, Father's Day is the same for the US and Ireland (June 16th).

Anywho... I put together some lovely gifts to help you celebrate your Mother's Day.

It is still early enough to pick up these pretty picks.
And it wouldn't hurt to snag some florals on the way! Tulips are my mom's fav!

And to the mom's reading, Happy (early) Mother's Day to you!
Treat yourself. You deserve it! :)
