Shopbop Big Event Sale

What a better way to welcome March than with the amazing Shopbop sale. I have been patiently waiting for the sale to snag a few spring items. I’m so happy this sale came in earlier rather than later as I’ve also been wanting a few new things for our trip coming up later this month. I have my eye on this classic Equipment silk blouse, these sunglasses or these, a pair of leather espadrilles, this Tibi peplum top, the Madewell tote, this cosmetic pouch, these classic nude heels, and a new pair of sandals for summer. Take advantage of the sale with code BIGEVENT15. You save 15% with purchase over $250, 20% with purchase over $500, and 25% with purchase over $1000. The sale is valid from Tuesday, March 3, 2015 to Sunday, March 8, 2015 4:00AM Eastern Time (New York time zone).

On my wish list:

Dreams Are Made of Pink

The other day as I was planning what I’m packing for DC I realized that I don’t own more than one or two pink pieces. And as the weather is still expected to be chilly when we visit I ordered a pink coat followed by this beautiful pink cashmere sweater {on major sale}. I’m also eyeing these pink plates from Williams Sonoma for Easter and weekend brunches at home. As much as I like a simple neutral outfit, I’m craving to add pink in small doses. Hurry up spring!

Weekend Memo

First, I want to extend my gratitude for helping me live my dream. As cliché as it sounds, I couldn’t do it without your support. You’ve been part of the reason I have achieved my recent small victories and I’m so thankful. Thank you for following along, for the recent notes of love coming in my email, for your lovely comments, and for finding this part of the web inspiring. You truly are what motivates me to create inspiring content. I’m beyond grateful and feel so blessed to have the loveliest of readers. So I’m virtually sending you a thank you and a big hug!

Second, I can’t believe that March is just a couple of days away. It always seems to sneak up on me as I tend to forget that February is a short month. I’m excited however to enter a new month and warmer weather. I’m hoping that my local market starts bringing in some ranunculus and if I’m lucky some peonies. I’m ready to trade my tulips and roses for some pink beauties. I’m also looking forward to traveling at the end of next month to DC and hopefully see the cherry blossoms in bloom {I’m keeping my fingers crossed}. I was kind of counting on seeing them bloom as we will be there during the Cherry Blossom Festival, but as some readers pointed out, they can be in bloom for just a couple of days or last two weeks. Hopefully, it all works out because I’m hoping to snap some photos of the beautiful cherry blossoms and share them with you.
