1. Chelsea28 Cold Shoulder Shift Dress
Ruffles and bows and stripes are everything I want in an outfit and this year it’s right on trend. This cute striped shift dress is screaming spring and summer and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the clothing world has in store for us this season. This dress is actually fairly classic in shape, but with the added arm detail, it takes it up a notch. This would make a great Easter dress (because shockingly that’s right around the corner!) or would be equally as cute as a date night dress with wedges and some bangles. In any case I love the simplicity of it and with that comes a variety of ways to wear it making it your next go-to dress in your closet.
I follow Wink Wink Studio on Instagram and I absolutely love her work. Her paintings are fun splashes of color that would brighten up or give an added dimension to any room. One of my favorites on her site right now is the one above. I’m a sucker for anything that has a deep, rich green hue and the way Suzy (the artist) pairs it with navy and a light pink is pretty much everything. If you follow her on Instagram she also posts pieces that you can buy right then and there! This piece will run ya right at $500 and is 24×24, but she has a variety of price points on her site and on Insta that appeal to the masses. Check her out and get some inspiration in your day!
Since I’ve gotten into baking I’ve noticed there is a pan for everything. It’s amazing what kind of pull that has on you when you’re a baker. I was in Michaels yesterday and saw one of those pans where you can make cookie cups. Um, awesome. Totally need, scratch that, want, scratch that definitely don’t need that, ha! But his mini angel food cake pan (which I didn’t know existed until recently) might be a pan that I want to buy. One of my favorite all-time desserts is angel food cake. I love it with strawberries and whipped cream, but honestly I’ll eat it just as is and be the happiest person ever. With Easter, Memorial Day and 4th of July right around the corner making little mini versions sounds like such a fun idea for an outdoor barbecue or get together. Because as I’ve mentioned before, mini anything is such a great idea.
