Two words come to mind as I wake up this Friday morning: thank goodness! What a week! Adjusting to the time change, weird random surprise snow storms, preparing for our trip to Charlotte this weekend then having to cancel it at the last minute...I've been all over the place!
I took Harlow to her first movie on Wednesday bc school was cancelled due to that strange snow and I was like 'welp I'm out of crafts and indoor activities after this long, cold-ass winter full of flu. We're going to the dang movies!' She did SO good! We saw Peter Rabbit and we both enjoyed it.
As fun as it was, I'm ready to get outside and enjoy some warm weather and sunshine! Even though March Madness makes me want to keep an eye on the TV; I do love opening weekend of the NCAA tournament! It's just in my blood, a Carolina girl who grew up in ACC country. Suffice it to say it should be a lovely weekend all around!
I'm really excited for this week's edition of Weekend Things especially the pretty eyelet clothes (and shoes) I scouted out. I HAVE to have that pink flutter sleeve dress and those sneakers...and at least one of the tops ;D
Random snow storms be damned, I'm in a spring state of mind and there's nothing this drunk southern weather can do about it! (*shakes fist at the sky*) Right now I'm gravitating towards romantic, feminine pieces in soft fabrics, colorful prints, and easy silhouettes. Translation: give me florals, eyelet, straw bags, and flowy skirts and dresses.
If you've ever wanted to wear a dogwood bloom behind your ear, or well, in your ear, this is your year! Oversized floral earrings are a major jewelry trend this spring. I've seen them run anywhere between $500 (seriously) and $30, and these are definitely way down on the affordable end of the spectrum. Personally I'm loving the navy but gold goes with everything...
GOLD FLORAL EARRINGS ($36)
NAVY RESIN FLORAL EARRINGS ($36)
WHITE FLORAL EARRING ($36)
I'm extra extra into eyelet this year! I think maybe it's because I used to always think of it as a dressier fabric for Easter or church or a bridal shower dress or something, but that's totally changed! I love an eyelet top dressed down with jeans or with overalls (just bought THIS pair of overalls I'm suuuper excited about!), or an eyelet dress with white sneakers.
Love the ruffle on the shoulder and it's currently 40% off!
EYELET RUFFLE TRIM TOP
These flutter sleeves are so dreamy, and I love the vintage pink color.
EYELET FLUTTER SLEEVE DRESS
I like the work-to-weekend versatility of this top almost as much as the $59 price tag!
RUFFLE COTTON EYELET TOP
The midi length of this dress makes wearing it on daytime kid duty very doable. I also love the navy color that makes the eyelet detail pop.
RUFFLE TRIM EYELET MIDI DRESS
This dress is just downright adorable. You could totally wear it for Easter and dress it down afterwards with sandals or sneakers.
CROCHETED LACE RUFFLE DRESS
I see this with jean shorts on warm spring Saturdays. The mixed fabrics give it a more casual vibe.
EYELET TRIM LONG SLEEVE TEE
You can just go ahead and put these in my shopping cart. I LOVE these to wear with t-shirt dresses or cropped pants.
What's easier than a blousy button-up to wear with jeans and shorts? this also comes in NAVY and would look cute knotted to the side.
EYELET PEASANT TOP
I love a sweet eyelet tank to wear with colorful pants and skirts, and of course with distressed denim.

Going to Charleston for Spring Break or summer vacation? Photographer, mama, and all-around cutie Gray Benko shared HER LIST of favorite places to eat, shop, and play with the family in the Holy City. I always love knowing where other mamas recommend taking their kiddos in other cities. I want to do something like this for Asheville!
