PATTERN MIXING

Since gingham is a must this Spring & Summer, I decided to mix it with some polka dots for a little pattern pop! I absolutely love this shirt and it's on sale right now from J Crew Factory for less than $30. These jeans are from 7 for all mankind, but they also have these same ones in plain white right now for 30% off. Also, my shoes are from last year, but Gilt has them here on sale for $75. PS.. check out this gorgeous druzy necklace I layered with my Kendra Scott necklace. If you use code MEC33VAW you can get 15% off all of her products (great quality and also perfect for layering!).

BLUSH & BREEZY DRESS

So I wore this dress for my birthday and I'm completely obsessed!! I received it from Blush & Breezy Boutique. If you haven't checked out her instagram yet, you totally should! She has the cutest stuff!! Back to the dress--it screams classy, with a little sassy (if you check out the pictures of the back, you will see what I mean). I paired the dress with leopard heels, this gorgeous blue Starletta designs necklace, these bright pink Kendra Scott earrings, and this adorable bracelet that the hubs surprised me with when I got home from work :) Hope y'all are having a great week so far and thanks for reading!

ANNIVERSARY IDEAS

My husband and I are celebrating our 2nd year anniversary today! I can't believe it's been 2 years already. It feels like yesterday when we said "I do," and each and every day I fall even more in love with him (Okay, I promise not to be mushy for the remainder of this post, but sometimes I just can't help it haha). Anyways, I wanted to share some DIY ideas that can utilized for any special occasion. Most of these gift ideas were from our one year wedding anniversary, which was paper themed. I don't know about y'all, but I always have the hardest time buying gifts for the hubs. Anytime I ask him what he wants, he always says "I don't need anything." That being said, I decided I had to be creative with my gift giving, and decided on making these "Open When" letters.

GIFT IDEA # 1: I made this box of "Open When" letters, which is basically an old shoe box covered in fun scrapbook paper, with different themed letters inside. I posted some of the different letters I made below. As you can see, I might have gone a little overboard at Michael's on craft supplies lol, but how can you not want to buy everything when you're making fun DIY projects?! Some of the items I purchased to complete this project were: paper envelopes, scrapbook paper, twine, washi tape, silver paint pen, and a stencil for the lettering.

GIFT IDEA # 2: My husband made me this personalized framed letter which included random pictures of us. How sweet is that?! Literally, this was my favorite gift he's ever given me and it definitely had me tearing up.

GIFT IDEA #3: This was not from our anniversary, but I made this for the hubs when he was in school and had away rotations. We would write sweet letters to each other and leave it for one another to read while the other one was away. You can find this same one here.

GIFT IDEA #4: How cute is this "Happy love day" shutterfly book? and YES... I am THAT wife that has a few of these along with  scrapbooks haha. PS.. if you use groupons, you can totally end up getting this type of book for under $20!

I know off the shoulder tops are trending this Spring, but how cute is this cold shoulder top?  I purchased this from Target a few weeks ago, and I love it! It's no longer listed online, but I linked some similar options below that are under $20. I paired this top with boyfriend jeans, bold statement earrings, and this dainty "I love you more" necklace. PS.. if you're looking for comfortable jeans, look no more -- these are AMAZINGGGG!

Time to talk about my favorite white jeans ever..!! I scored these beauties when 7 for all mankind was having their 40% off sale. These ripped boyfriend jeans are so cute for dressing up or down. For size reference, I sized 2 sizes down. I usually wear a 25 in jeans, but bought these in a size 23. Trust me, they're worth the splurge. I wear them all of the time! PS..my sandals are super comfy and less then $30 :)
