The trend of styling a dress over jeans is perfect for days when you just can’t seem to figure out what to wear to be comfortable in the in-between spring temperatures.  I’m always cold and wearing basic skinny jeans under this printed off-the-shoulder dress proved just about perfect to keep me warm while out and about.

Loving Lace-Up

I say, all lace-up everything!  I just added this long-sleeve ribbed dress to my rotation and I really appreciate that it’s such a classic piece. The ribbing creates a very flattering fit and I absolutely love the lace-up neckline with gold grommets.  It’s so on trend yet classic, and perfect for summer and the months leading up to it.

I’ve been a little M.I.A. recently and all for good reason… our baby boy surprised us by coming almost three weeks early!  We’re so happy that he’s here and have been adjusting to life with a newborn – days spent nursing, napping and snuggling on repeat!  More on the sweet addition to our family later but in the meantime you can see a snap of Carter Price here.

Although my hair routine tends to be pretty basic, i.e. straightened, beach waves or these days air-dryed, it’s nice to break the mold once in a while.  Enter these Jen Atkin Hair accessories from Chloe + Isabel that I came across and with which am now obsessed!

The sun was shining in Denver this weekend and it really was such a beautiful couple of days.  On Sunday, Scott and I had our own little date day which was so nice to just have a laid back day to ourselves.  We took the dog to the park, had lunch on a patio (followed by a stop at Dairy Queen… I mean come on, 70 degrees in April calls for a DQ Blizzard), played cornhole in our yard just the two of us (to really take advantage of the warm weather), made dinner and watched a movie.  It was a perfect day!  And now that we have a little one on the way, I’m really trying to cherish the one-on-one time with my husband.

Gingham for Easter

We celebrated Easter with lunch and High Tea at The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa.  This was my first time experiencing High Tea and I absolutely loved every minute of it.  High Tea is held in the lobby of the hotel and includes a vast selection of exotic teas accompanied by delicious mini desserts, scones, tea sandwiches and live music.  And if you’re not abstaining from champagne like I currently am, you can add in bubbly!  We really didn’t need to eat lunch before since there was so much food served, but since we were all tea-time beginners and didn’t know any better we ate beforehand.  The Brown Palace is one of my go-to’s for special occasions, like the Champagne Cascade to kick off the holiday season as seen in this post.

I’ve been experimenting with how to dress my growing baby bump and found the perfect Easter outfit as seen in this Instagram post.

NYC Packing List

Scott and I are headed to The Big Apple!  We have a ton of great activities planned including a viewing of The Jimmy Fallon Show, hanging with one of my best friends from college and lots of culinary delights.  And while it may seem like Spring in Denver, NYC is a bit colder and the forecast is even predicting some snow flurries while we’re there.  See my selections for everything you need to pack for a long winter weekend in the city!
