We’ve had a pretty mild winter here in Denver but there’s just something about full-on Spring! I’m really enjoying the warm weather, longer days and love that everything is so beautiful in bloom this time of year. Driving by these blossoming trees in my neighborhood puts a smile on my face each day! Pink is one of my favorite colors in any shade and I’m so happy that it’s everywhere this season in nature and in fashion.
We have two really fun events coming up this week: The Kentucky Derby and Mother’s Day. I’ve teamed up with Mary of Love of Character to bring you some serious hosting inspo! When hosting such special occasions, it’s nice to keep things simple and easy… with quick cleanup – key for after party sanity!
We had a nice relaxing weekend and headed to brunch in uptown on Sunday. Brunch is seriously one of my favorite things to do, it’s such a fun social activity and I love trying out new restaurants! I’ve seriously been craving lemon ricotta pancakes ever since I saw a sign for them outside of a restaurant during our recent trip to NYC. So I tracked some down at Humboldt thanks to Yelp .
Now that we’ve (hopefully) seen the last snow fall in Colorado and turned the corner to consistently warmer weather, I wanted to share my Spring 2016 Shoe Wish List! Since my baby bump is ever-growing, I’ve been focusing my attention on accessories that I will be able to use even after our baby boy is here! I always love a good neutral sandal and lean towards all things metallic or animal print. See my selections for everything you need to put your best foot forward through Spring.
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.
