Happy mid-week to you:)
How about that gorgeous photo of Jackie Kennedy? It inspired the rest of the post.
I have an inbox piled high, but I am one sleep deprived mama today who is going to catch up on some snoozes before I turn into a zombie.
P.S. Hunger Games countdown….the first time EVER for a movie I feel the need to dress up in character for the premier. WHAT?! Must find a bow and arrow….
Anyone else going opening night?!

My baby girl is well on her way to her 1 yr. birthday. It has completely blindsided me!
Definately the fastest year of my life to date…
Gabe and I love watching her personality unfold. We call her a silent ninja…always climbing and crawling and attempting daring things without a peep escaping from her. Quite funny.
She loves to chase after Gabriel and get into whatever he is playing. Luckily he has lots of patience for her. She is standing on her own but in no rush to walk. She is a speedster on the floor so she feels confident that it will be her means of transportation for a while….as well as mama’s arms;) One of our favorite things is to watch Gabriel try to make her laugh. He loves being an entertainer, and she loves to be entertained, so its a great match. She laughs at him constantly.
I can’t seem to stop buying her little shoes (as you may have noticed on instagram). Also adding one too many bathing suits to her closet. Having a girl to dress up is way too much fun:) I hope and pray I can remember these sweet moments forever so I can tell her about them one day, and remind her how much joy she brings to our lives.
I guess its time to plan a first birthday party!

{Blouse: J. Crew, Old Navy (similar), Pants: Gap, Necklaces: Vintage, F21, Bracelets: DIY here, c/o Poshlocket, Stella&Dot, Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters

So the plan was to catch up with many of you readers this weekend.
But then the sun showed its beautiful face all weekend long and we lived outside. Nothing got done, but I did soak up some QT with my family, enjoy a St. Patrick’s Day date with my hubz, watch UK win two NCAA tourney games (holla!!), and finish with Coldstone ice cream last night. A good recipe for a weekend, no? How was yours?? I think the whole nation got a warm spell!

Style Word: Mixing prints take 2 above. I used two shirts of the same color family to mix up a casual look and add some more color and fun to the mix. I challenge you to look at your closet with a new pair of eyes, and see what you can mix up with what you already have! 😉
Also, going to be hosting the True Beauty Files link up posts once a month, so it gives you all time to prepare:) If you have one ready from the past few weeks, link up below, and please refer back to this original post via button or text link! (Email me if you need a different size! 
The True Beauty Files:
A lookbook for the modern modeste.
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
