Finding comfortable shoes is one of the THE HARDEST things for me! These cognac lace up flats are so amazing!  I was shocked at how soft and comfortable they were the very first time I wore them.  They are faux leather which explains the affordable price (under $60).  I find that faux leather can sometimes be stiff and cut into your feet but these feel buttery soft.  Sizing does run on the smaller side so I'd recommend sizing up.  I took my normal size 5 and they fit perfectly which usually means that the shoe runs small.  It comes in 3 different colors and you can buy it HERE.  Would highly recommend!

This is still one of my all time favorite dress (and so affordable) and will be perfect for Spring and Summer.  I took these photos before announcing my pregnancy last Summer.  Every time I see this dress, it makes me smile because I was trying so hard to conceal my baby bump. :)  I love that this dress is available in petites (I'm wearing XSP) and is available in a skirt version HERE. You can buy the dress HERE.

I'm loving this candy pink knit sweater!  Small sizes see to be sold out right now but they usually re-stock based on demand.  Sizing runs big but I like the over sized fit.  It's currently on sale and would recommend!

Stripes and flamingos?  Yes please!  If you're looking for a flamingo scarf, THIS ONE is a good option for under $20!  Also, if you love my striped shirt, I found THIS ONE that is very similar.

I never reviewed the Ivanka Trump lace up flats but clearly I love them. They aren't as comfortable as the cognac ones however I would still recommend them.  Sizing runs small so I'd recommend going up at least 1/2 a size!  Obviously they are amazing otherwise I wouldn't have bought there colors. lol
You can buy them HERE.  Another good option that won't break the bank are these HERE.
CeCe by Cynthia Steffe Bow Front Shift Dress, Chanel WOC, Charles David Pact polka dot pumpsBow front shift dress (buy HERE) // Polka dot pumps (buy HERE) // Chanel Woc (cheaper HERE)

Remember my black bow shift dress HERE? Now it's available in this gorgeous hot pink color!  My black dress came in petites but the pink one is regular sizes only.  I compared the 0 Petite and the regular 0 and there is a slight difference in the width and length.  In full disclosure, I haven't officially tried on the pink dress - baby has been keeping me very busy!  This is a great dress because it's very forgiving.  The shift style leaves you a lot of room to breathe and no sucking in needed. :)  It's a great option for expecting mothers and can be worn post partum while your body bounces back.

It's hard to see in this photo but I found a similar dupe to my pink ring HERE.   I also found THIS ONE if your size is sold out.

This gold lip dish is so cute!  It's supposed to be a wine coaster but I'll be using it as a jewelry dish.  It measures 5 1/4" in diameter which is great to put rings, brooches and earrings in.  Would definitely recommend.  You can buy it HERE.

If you love cardigans, this one is so cute and very cozy!  The neutral color is so easy to wear and it'll transition nicely into Spring.  Even though there's only one size, this one fits just fine on me and I'm 5' tall and typically wear size XS.   I would say this would fit anyone that is usually an XS to a size medium. The length in the back is shorter but still covers your butt if you want to wear it with leggings.  The front length is longer than I would prefer but I kind of like the oversized look.  This cardigan drapes nicely and you can see another pic at the end of the post.  I can see this looking super cute with white jeans and ankle booties.  I would recommend it!  You can buy it HERE.
