Currently Loving .226


Happy Friday! I hope you're having a great week! This has probably been the busiest week of 2021 so far for me. I have been wrapping up NASA STEM Challenge that I've been working on with two groups of students, attending an online afterschool conference, and working as usual. I'm definitely ready for some rest and fun this weekend!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! We had a brief flashback to cold weather last week but I think spring/summer temperatures are here to stay in North Carolina. My closet has been switched over and I definitely want to add in a few new pieces. I really didn't buy much last year during this season because well, we really weren't going anywhere or doing anything!

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

1. T A N K | I am such a big fan of sweater tanks! I am loving the button up detail on this new one. It would be so cute paired with high waisted shorts or jeans!

2. H A T | Puerto Rico is less than two months away so I am already starting to prepare for our trip. When we went last time, I lived in swimsuits and a hat is also definitely a must have. Especially during the summertime in PR! I am loving the cute leopard detail on this hat.

3. D R E S S | I'm currently loving dresses! This one is so cute and super budget friendly. It would also be such a great dress for a nursing momma!

4. T E E | Speaking of moms, how cute is this tee?! It would make such a great gift for a new mom or your mom! Any mom would absolutely love this. Mother's Day will be here soon!

5. S H O R T S | These shorts are another budget friendly find. They are under $20! I personally like an inseam of somewhere between 4-5 inches and these shorts definitely meet my needs. If you are in the market for a cute pair of high waisted denim shorts for a great price, I would try these!

6. S W I M S U I T | I have been doing some swimsuit shopping for our upcoming trip and I wanted a new two piece black suit. This one is less than $13 and has good reviews! I think I am going to give it a try. I always love high waisted swimsuits!

7. H E E L S | All of the heart eyes for these heels! I absolutely love the style and I'm definitely adding them to my personal wish list. I'm hoping they go on sale soon!

8. B A G | This bag is another wish list item. The beaded detail on this tote bag is just so pretty. I also love the color because it would go with everything!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Currently Loving .225



Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! In the last couple of weeks, I started a little side gig of selling my vintage and thrift store finds over at With Style Treasures on Instagram. It's been something that I've wanted to do for awhile but I kept putting it off. I absolutely love finding treasures, especially at thrift stores. It's like a grown up treasure hunt for me! I also love giving old things new life. I always spot items that I love but don't personally have a use for but now, I can offer them to other people. It's already been so much fun and I'm just getting started by offering items for local pickup. In the future, I plan to offer shipping within the United States. I'm excited for this little adventure!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! I am currently loving dresses with fun patterns as you will see below. Dresses make you instantly feel put together! They are my absolute favorite thing to wear during the spring and summertime.

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

1. S W E A T  S U I T | Y'all, I am here for this sweat suit trend that's going on. Yes to comfy! All day, everyday. I have been wanting one but they are usually pricey for both pieces, especially when they are sold separately. This cute set comes together and it's only $30! I already ordered mine and I can't wait to get it. I have a feeling I will absolutely love it!

2. S N E A K E R S | I already own and love these sneakers! I've shared them here before but I wanted to follow up and share them again. I personally sized down a half size for the best fit. They are so incredibly comfortable! They also look super cute with everything: dresses, skirts, jeans, and shorts!

3. F L O R A L  D R E S S | This dress is so gorgeous! I just want to be wearing it down the streets of a beautiful European town. I don't own anything like this but I am pretty sure that I need to!

4. P O L K A  D O T  D R E S S | And... another gorgeous dress! If you know me then you know I have always been a big fan of polka dots my whole life. The only thing better than polka dots is rose pink polka dots! I need this dress in my closet, too. It's perfect!

5. T O T E  B A G | A straw tote bag is an essential for me! So perfect to carry everyday, to the beach, to the pool, or to the farmers' market. Bonus: it goes with everything!

6. J A C K E T | My very favorite denim jacket of all time is currently on sale for 25%! This jacket is pricey but remember cost per wear. Mine was basically free at this point considering how much I have worn it! The fabric just gets better and better with time. The fit is true to size.

7. B R A C E L E T S | I always start buying new bracelets and necklaces again as soon as the weather warms up. During the winter, my skin is basically covered up so you can't see my jewelry as much so when it's warm, I want all of the jewels! This cute set of bracelets is currently on sale, too.

8. T E E | Every lady needs a good basic white tee in her wardrobe. It's a staple! These eight dollar tees at Target are my very favorite. They fit well, aren't see through, and hold up great. I'm a fan! They also fit true to size.

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

Currently Loving .224


Happy Friday! I hope y'all have had a great week! I don't think I've shared this here on but we are officially headed back to Puerto Rico in June! We went back in 2019 and had such an incredible trip. We are doing are first Airbnb experience and I just cannot wait to be back on my favorite beach!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! I already have a few of this items in my cart. I know I say this every spring and summer but shopping this time of year is my absolute favorite! I didn't buy much during the wintertime but I am definitely making up for it now. Give me all of the shorts, sandals, and sweater tanks!

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

1. D E N I M  S H O R T S | High rise denim shorts are my absolute favorite! I own three pairs of Madewell shorts and I love the fit. I stick with the same size as my Madewell jeans or I size up one size if I want a more relaxed kind of fit.

2. E A R R I N G S | I recently purchased a pair of medium size hoop earrings and they are the perfect size for everyday wear. I am really loving the added details on this pair!

3. H E A D B A N D | I don't wear a ton of color but I do love colorful accessories! I am currently on a floral kick and I think I have to have this headband in my collection. Isn't it pretty?! It would take a basic neutral outfit to a whole new level. I love it!

4. T A N K | I am such a big fan of sweater tanks! A regular tank top sometimes feels just too casual but a sweater tank makes me feel a little more put together. I love the dainty tie detail on the back of the straps of this one! I will definitely be adding it to my cart.

5. T O P | I bought this top last spring in a super similar and it's even prettier in person! Great quality and darling details. The fit is true to size and also comes in other colors as well!

6. S A N D A L S | I never thought I would be a Birkenstocks fan but here we are with my second pair sitting in my online shopping cart. I bought this pair back in March and I have been living in them! They are so comfortable and so supportive. Just what I need!

7. R U N N I N G  S H O R T S | Activewear with a five inch inseam?! Yes, please! I often find that running shorts are just way too short, especially for my day to day life. I bought these shorts in gray last summer and I wear them several times a week. They are the perfect length if you like a little more coverage but don't want to wear really long shorts. I just ordered a second pair because they will be perfect for work this summer!

8. B A N D A N A | Bandanas are such a fun way to add a little color or pop of pattern to your outfit. I personally love to tie a bandana to my straw bag. It will make your bag feel brand new for under $8!

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

Currently Loving .223

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! Last week, we had spring break so we have been getting back into a routine this week. Plus, Julianna went back to school in person for the first time in three weeks and she's going four days a week now (she was only going two days a week). She said Monday really felt like the first day of school... but in April! What a crazy year it's been.

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! I think spring is really here in North Carolina... well, actually it's felt like summertime the past few days. Hello, eighty degree temperatures! I have been switching my wardrobe (and the girls') over to spring and summer this week because I had some extra time on Monday and Wednesday while I was off from work. I found that I definitely need to add more dresses to my warm weather wardrobe!

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

1. B I K E  S H O R T S | I am still currently (and for the foreseeable future) working on in my garage so I really haven't bought many workout clothes in awhile. But, as our weather turned extra warm this week, I realized I needed a few things and the first item I decided to grab was some new bike shorts. I do a lot of cycling and barre workouts so bike shorts totally work for me. I got this pair in the mail and they are so soft! I haven't worked out in them yet but I'll definitely report back over on my Instagram stories about how they hold up for a workout. I love the fit, though!

2. S A N D A L S | How cute are these sandals?! Y'all know that I absolutely love animal print and I love when I can bring it into the spring and summer. I just really love everything about these sandals and they are definitely on my sandal wish list!

3. B L A C K  D R E S S | Like I mentioned above, my closet is in serious need of some dresses. I feel like dresses are a great wardrobe hack because it's so easy to feel put together. Throw on a dress and a cute pair of sandals. Instant outfit! This little black dress is a great affordable option and fits true to size.

4. F L O R A L  D R E S S | And... another dress! I have been on quite the hunt for a floral dress this past week. My husband was tired of hearing about it, lol. Everything I found was too expensive or just not quite what I was looking for. I found this little swing dress option on Amazon so I ordered it to give it a try. I love the daisy print! I'll keep y'all posted on how I like it once it arrives.

5. B A G | I am loving this darling little woven bag from Madewell! It's such a great, everyday bag. It also comes in black but this cognac color is definitely my favorite.

6. D E N I M  S H O R T S | Ok, these shorts are pricey. I bought a pair from this brand last spring and I lived in them all spring/summer long. The quality is amazing and I love the fit. They are a true denim so they just get better and better with time!

7. N E C K L A C E S | I have currently been loving layered necklaces. I go through phases with this but I always tend to start layering my necklaces again every spring. I guess it's because my wardrobe changes up and you can actually see my neckline because it isn't covered by a giant sweater anymore. If you love the layered look, this set is a great option to get you started!

8. S K I R T | I posted this skirt in my last roundup up well but I am sharing it again because honestly, I forgot I shared it two weeks ago (haha) and because it's currently on sale! I personally think a leopard skirt is a closet staple. They are so fun to dress up or down!

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