Spring date night stripes

A few weeks ago, thanks to a woman very close to my heart, the man and I got away for the first time since 3PbabyB arrived for a little date night.  The weather was warm, the dinner spot was hoppin,' and I was so happy to throw on a dress and heels for the occasion.  My necklace made it's debut appearance that night and oh-how-I-love the green spikes!

Heels: Nine West
Clutch: old; similar

7 denim shortalls under $100

One spring trend that is popping up everywhere?  Short denim overalls, or shortalls, if you will.  I am not 100% sold on this fashion fad recurrence (who else owned these and Birkenstocks in 4th-6th grade?), but sometimes these casual cool overalls entice this fashionista.  This post was actually inspired by a sweet friend's desire to find some cute overalls, so whether its you that is looking for a pair or if one of your friends is the one is search of some short overalls, here are 7 on-trend denim shortalls under $100.

3PbabyB yellow and gray nursery

To continue on the Mother's Day theme here on the blog this week, I am happy to share our 3P Baby B's nursery.  This room came together in a snap after a few months of planning, and I could not be happier with this space.  Most of the furniture in this room was kindly gifted by friends and family, but are great bargain investments from Target.  I nixed the idea of a changing table in favor of a dresser, which can be used by our daughter after she outgrows the nursery.  The gallery wall is one of everyone's favorite designs, and the DIY mobile I fashioned above he changing pad is one of 3P Baby B's favorite things to look at!  Yellow, white and silver were the color inspirations for this room, and that inspiration produced some dreamy results!  So if you are looking for a little yellow and gray nursery design inspiration, look no further!
This glider is perfection- the back is tall enough to rest your head against, and the armrests are the perfect height for holding my little baby as I rock her to sleep.

Love these DIY shelves my man built and installed in our baby's room.  Love talking to her about dreams and laughter everyday when I point out those decorations- I had these on hand and spray painted them silver, but you can find something similar here or here.

Totally love how this nursery gallery wall came together!

I made this little mobile with some leftover decorations from a 3PbabyB baby shower.

Everyone loves this adorable clock from my childhood room- find a similar one here.
