Currently Loving .215

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! I took a break from this post last week because life has been so busy. I'm sure so many of you can relate but this is such a crazy season. Every week our schedule for school and my work has been different! It's so hard to keep up some days. I look forward to the weekends even more right now. Saturdays and Sundays are the best!

Today, I'm back at it and sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! I have purchased much less this season but I do have a few things on my wish list, especially now that Madewell released their "spring" new arrivals! Over half of my picks are new items that just arrived from there!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. T O P | How pretty is this top?! The details are just gorgeous and feel fancy but it's still super casual. This would be so cute now paired with jeans but I could also see it working with shorts once the weather warms up. Such a fun piece!

2. B A G | This is one of the Madewell new arrivals that I am absolutely loving! I most certainly do not need a new Madewell bag. Last year I shared my Madewell Bag Collection in this post and it definitely needs to be updated with my new additions. I just can't get enough! The style of this bag is just perfect and I'm loving the strap.

3. S H I R T | I used to wear a chambray/denim shirt on repeat in the past but I got paint on my favorite one and never replaced it. I have been looking for a relaxed/semi-oversized one to add to my closet and I'm loving the style of this one! I'm loving the denim on denim shown here but it would also be so cute with white or black denim. A classic piece!

4. E A R R I N G S | I have a thing for heart shaped jewelry! It's just so feminine and whimsical. I feel like these earrings have my name written all over them. Love love love!

5. S N E A K E R S | I'm all about the sneaker life right now. I have been living in sneakers! Comfort is key to keeping up with a crazy schedule. I ordered a similar pair that are a little more bold (hello, animal print) than these but I am loving this neutral pair. They would go with everything!

6. J A C K E T | Insert heart eye emojis for this jacket! How cute is this?! Cozy AND leopard print?! Sign me up for that. It would make cold days much more fun!

7. H E A D B A N D | Do I need another headband? Absolutely not. Will I probably buy another headband? Absolutely. My collection is getting out of control but I do share it with two little girls so I feel better about it. I'm loving this animal print!

8. T U N I C | Oversized tops that work with leggings are my current favorite right now, for obvious reasons. I want to be comfortable! This cute tunic is current half price and it has the same name as my oldest daughter... which I why it originally caught my eye. You can't go wrong with a top like this!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Currently Loving .214

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! I finished up my work week yesterday and we are almost done with virtual learning for the week. Woo hoo! We don't have any big plans this weekend but I do know that I want tacos from my favorite local spot and a trip to the thrift store. Two of my favorite things: tacos and thrifting!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! Like I mentioned last week, I have currently filling in some wardrobe gaps now that I have gotten rid of some clothes and reassessed what I need. I fulfilled two of those needs this week with a cream colored sweater and pajamas. Both of these purchases are also included in today's roundup!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. S H I R T  J A C K E T | Who else is loving the shirt jacket trend?! I am all about a multifunctional piece of clothing and I love that this shirt jacket is also leggings friendly! I can't wait to style it! Use my code EMILY15 to save 15% off of your order at!

2. B R A C E L E T S | I love dainty gold bracelets! Most of my jewelry is from Madewell and everything holds up so well. I think I need to add this set to my collection!

3. S N E A K E R S | I don't want to sound dramatic but these are by far the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever worn! Really, they are! I originally just bought them to wear to Disney back in 2019 then they became my go-to pair of shoes, all year round. They are perfect with shorts, skirts, jeans, dresses, and leggings! The fit is true to size.

4. H E A D B A N D | I feel like I'm a headband connoisseur at this point and these turban style headbands from J. Crew are the very best. I can't wear one all day long and totally forget that it's even on my head. I own and love this leopard print one!

5. J E A N S | Perfect vintage jeans are by far my favorite style at Madewell and I'm always on the lookout for new washes. I am loving this distressed pair! If you've never purchased Madewell denim, I would recommend sizing down one size from your non-Madewell denim size for the best fit.

6. T U N I C | I shared this tunic in a different color last week and after I finished my post, I wanted to purchase it for myself. This led me to finding it on same at a different retailer! Yay! It runs oversized and so cozy. Mine came in the mail yesterday and the quality is amazing!

7.  P A J A M A S | I recently treated myself to a new pair of pajamas and y'all, they are wonderful! I have never really owned anything other than Target pajamas but I have been wanting a nicer pair that would hold up longer. I got these in this week and I want to live in them! They fit so nicely and the fabric incredibly soft. I would highly recommend them!

8. S W E A T E R | I am loving the color of this sweater! It's definitely a color that is missing from my closet. I also really love the fit of this sweater! It would be so cute paired with skinny jeans and anklke boots. Use my code EMILY15 to save 15% off of your order at!

Currently Loving .213


Happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season! We enjoyed a lot of relaxation and slower paced days, which was just what I needed to end the year. Our little family took a quick trip to South Carolina to visit Josh's dad. The day we arrived, a baby goat was born and then the next evening, five more baby goats were born! This was such a cool experience for all of us, especially the girls. If 2020 taught me anything, it was to treasure the simple moments with my family!

Today, I'm back to sharing my weekly picks of what I'm Currently Loving! I actually haven't really done any shopping at all the past month, mostly because I really didn't need anything. I've cleaned out my closet and there are a few items that I am currently looking for. I already have one of the items from this week's picks in my shopping cart!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. D R E S S | I have always been a big fan of polka dots! I've shared this before but when Josh and I were dating, he got a plate for the front of my car made that said "Polka Dot Princess" and I proudly drove around town with that plate on my car for a long time! Lol... polka dots are still one of the prints that I gravitate towards the most. This polka dot dress is so fun and feminine! I can't wait to style it with tall boots.

2. E A R R I N G S | I got these cute earrings in my stocking for Christmas and I have been wearing them daily every since. I have super sensitive ears and these earrings don't bother me at all! They are just a really great simple statement earring. Also, they are currently on super sale!

3. S W E A T E R | I have been looking for a sweater like this for awhile and this is what is currently in my shopping cart! I really wanted a great quality sweater that would work with leggings or jeans. But, which color do I choose?! I'm trying to decide between this camel color and white.

4. J O G G E R S | I have been living in all things comfortable lately, especially since we have been spending a lot of time at home. Even when I'm comfy at all, I still like to feel somewhat put together. These joggers give me those casual chic vibes that I love!

5. B A G | I also got this bag for myself for Christmas and I have carried it every single time I have left the house since. I had it on my wish list for a long time but I am so glad that I waited because I got it for a steal. It's also still on sale right now! I totally recommend it and it actually does hold quite a bit. I currently have my small wallet, car key, perfume roller, lip gloss, lotion, snack bar, Air Pods in it and I could also fit my phone inside as well. 

6. B E A N I E | I didn't really ask my husband for much for Christmas because I really didn't have to have anything but I did ask for a Carhartt beanie. He wasn't sure which color to get me so I ended up with not one, not two, not three, but four beanies for Christmas! I didn't get this black and white combo but I also really love this one too.

7. S N E A K E R S | I have already ordered these sneakers and I can't wait for them to arrive! They are way different than any other sneakers that I currently own. I love the mix of neutrals and leopard!

8. C A R D I G A N | I am still currently loving cardigans as tops and this one is no exception. It looks so cute with high waisted denim! I love that it's versatile and you can also wear it open as well. You can use my code EMILY15 to save 15% off of your order at BohoBlu!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great weekend!
