Pop of Color: Bright Cardigan with Neutral Base

Pop of Color: Bright Cardigan with Neutral Base

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? When 2018 began I had every intention of writing two posts a week and had even made a tentative editorial calendar with all my thoughts and ideas for the year. It took a lot of effort and I was really excited to bring you more content throughout the year. If you read this post, then you know I started a new job in a slightly familiar department. Being on this new team has been wonderful and also a lot of work. My focus has been on learning my new position, getting to know my teammates, and determining the best way to move forward with the tasks I have been given. I love it! I love my team! It just leaves very little time for you all here on the blog. I’ve been posting some on social media, but for the most part it’s been pretty quiet. Sorry for that. This is still a place I like to come to share inspiration and I hope it will continue to be a place you enjoy visiting as well. I want to work harder at posting regularly, but no promises! Thank you for the continued support. Now let’s get to the post…

During the dreary winter months, it’s hard not to get stuck in a rut when it comes to fashion. Who falls into the cycle of black, gray, and navy on repeat, but can’t wait to add a pop of color for spring/summer?! I certainly do! As the seasons transition (and year round) you can always add a pop of color with a bright cardigan or blazer. No need to wait until it’s warm enough to wear tank tops, skirts, and flirty summer dresses.

I wore this outfit yesterday and got a ton of compliments on it. The cardigan is from Old Navy, but is no longer available in this bright color so I shared a few bright options below. The black and white shell, that’s from Loft (years ago), but is a classic black and white basic that will never go out of style. Beyond work this would be cute for a date night or girls night. Pair it with heels, flats, or boots (if it’s still cold where you are location)! Shop the items below to recreate a similar look.

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Easter Weekend Recap

Lexi & Lady Easter 2018 Zoey and Lexi Easter 2018 Easter Tablescape

It is hard to believe how quickly the year goes by. Yesterday was April 1 and Easter Sunday! I spent a lovely weekend with the hub’s family (he had to work). On Sunday we went to church at Houston’s First Baptist Church. My older sister-in-law is in the choir and we like the pastor and enjoy the message there. After church we had a delicious late lunch and relaxed until I headed home to see the hubs for a few minutes before his shift. My mother-in-law had planned on making Joanna’s Strawberry Shortcake for dessert, but there were no strawberries to be found! Guess everyone had planned on serving something with strawberries 🙂 I can’t wait to try it out when there isn’t a strawberry shortage haha

Lexi loved every minute of the weekend and is currently snoring as I write this post. My in-laws moved to a new house last summer and it sits on beautiful, wooded acreage so the pups run around enjoying the outdoor. Not only does Lexi come home exhausted, but she is usually a filthy mess and therefore gets a bath. Her least favorite thing to do!

While I was in the area I went to Old Navy to see if I could find anything fun for spring. I don’t typically think of Old Navy as a place to go, but I have gift cards to the Gap Brand stores. For some reason all the bright colors and floral patterns drew me in and I bought some great stuff that really puts me in the mood for spring! Plus they had store wide sales. I mean…I got these flip flops in silver for $1.99! Best part is, the majority of the items I purchased can be worn for work and on the weekends. Double win! I also picked up these shorts in pink and think they are going to get a lot of use this summer. A couple of my purchases are no longer available online, but if you don’t normally shop at Old Navy you may want to give it a try for spring/summer.
