AJ Wears :: A springy peplum

I always remember Easter as being the "official" start of spring. When I was a little girl, I'd get a new dress and shoes and sometimes even a hat for church and egg hunting on Easter Sunday. 75% of the time, it was so cold and rainy I couldn't enjoy my new spring outfit. But every now and then, Easter would hit on a sunny, warm Sunday and I'd wear my white shoes with pride.

 This year, things started off rainy and it didn't look good, but by the afternoon it was sunny and 70. Feels like spring, finally! People were out walking, biking, and playing ball. I love that! We've got to do everything we can outside before the heat and humidity take over.

From my little family to yours, Happy Easter and Happy Spring. May we never put on a jacket again...until October.

AJ Wears :: A denim jacket

A denim jacket is one of those things I think you should never get rid of. If you find one you love, in a classic style, that thing will always come back. I bought this one at Gap during college and wore it at least once a week back then. When denim went the way of those shirts that grew three sizes when you put them on (seriously, what was up with that?), I put it in the back of my closet and waited.

And here we are today. I sometimes wish that I'd gotten one that was a little less stiff and a little more classic and casual, but I love the unique shape of this one and how easily it goes over a cute printed dress.

I've also been excited to pull these bracelets out again. I love them. They were a handmade wedding gift from the artist, but I recently found out she's selling them on Anthro's website now!

Okay, enough useful talk, now here's a story about these shoes. They were a hot topic tonight! I never know what makes a pair worth discussing, but these got a lot of attention. One of the girls at the Apple store suggested we make a trade, but didn't have any iPad minis to barter with so they went home with me. It's all for the best. I kind of like these shoes, regardless of how ridiculous my husband might think they are.

What I Wore :: Bachelorette Brunch

As you may have noticed if you've been reading this blog for a while, my friends and I love some brunch. There is nothing more wonderful than a patio, some wonderful weather, and some eggs benedict (I'm a little bit of a self-professed eggs benny expert).

Sunday Morning brunch attire can be dressy or casual, but it must always be fabulous. I chose these red Zara skinnies and a peplum top because we'd be traveling later. The jeans are stretchy in the most delightful way and the top is made of t-shirt material so it's all very comfortable while still looking sharp. Sneaky, right?

I also got the chance to wear these delicate sandals from Sole Society (I've been ordering a LOT from them lately! I got addicted!). They're actually quite comfortable and I can't wait to wear them over and over again.

Filet Mignon Eggs Benedict! Are you kidding me?? These were amazing!

The gals (Taryn manning the camera, thanks boo). Everyone was required to take a shot any time someone talked about how amazing the weather. Just kidding, we would have died. It was a perfect day and a wonderful end to a wonderful weekend.
