Spring Cleaning and Ruffles

Is it spring yet? I know I know... I live in Florida, and it's actually been gorgeous out lately. But we have another cold front moving through soon, and I'm kind of ready for those groundbreaking florals Miranda Priestly was talking about. 

I'm also ready for some bold brights again, and fell in love with the sweet peplum ruffles on this dress. It was a total impulse buy while submitting my recent Target Drive-Up order, and I'm not upset about it. At all. I mean it was only $15. We've had some warmer days recently, but with the temps dipping back down again soon I decided to also style it with a denim jacket when it's chillier.

We had a quiet weekend, and tackled some "spring cleaning". We painted the downstairs bathroom a shade of light blue called Seaside to bring some fun colors back into the house (is anyone else over all the white and gray everything?), and I even cleaned the microwave - the microwave guys! Maybe it was the leftover buffalo chicken dip from the Super Bowl that exploded in there or maybe it was because I was "spring cleaning". Either way - it's clean and I'm proud of myself. 

I also made heart shaped pancakes for Valentine's Day breakfast, and Lil' Miss and I baked a heart shaped cake for dessert that evening. Strawberry with extra sprinkles of course!

  7. Ugh, I need to clean the microwave. I am the only one in the house that understands the need for a paper towel or plate cover! I love that dress, I have the short sleeve version from last year and I am obsessed. I hope they bring it back too!

  9. Heart pancakes are the best and so proud of you for tackling the microwave. I can see why you feel relieved. I know I do too every time I get ours cleaned. Simple wins, right? I love the ruffle hem on your dress. It is absolutely a fun detail and let's not forget about the color. Very beautiful and it has me itching for spring!

  13. Wearing my denim jacket right now (I have a few and just bought a mustard one-fingers crossed it fits)and looking forward to lighter layers. It actually is not bad here in Georgia but it drives me nuts that the temps keep going up and down. Sandals! Looking forward to those!

  14. Such a cute drop waist dress! I really like the pastel colour, so good for spring and it's nice with the denim jacket :)
