Loving This Week... Hello, Spring!

Happy Spring! Well, Happy Spring a few days late - I was planning on sharing this post on Sunday but I couldn't follow through with it while we were getting snow flurries on the first day of spring.  It should be a semi-warm Easter in these parts (mid 60's) and sunny so I'm thankful for that.  Now, if it could just stay warm and sunny I'd love it.  Sharing an array of spring favorites below.

We have a lower deck which we rarely use (and I'd like to change that this summer) and I'm seriously considering two of these monogram chair swings if we can figure out how to hang them.  I've said it before but I'm having a very hard time staying away from anything floral, off the shoulder and tassel this year (see tops, bracelets, tote and dresses/romper below) and I'm also in need of some new beach gear - a straw hat and straw tote (I love this one even though it doesn't have a shoulder strap).  I think traveling for most people picks up in the warmer months and I'm always looking for anyway to keep my suitcase organized - these  little pouches are perfect for that.

*Check back around the start of summer for my favorite summer picks!

+ Bloomingdales: 20% off $250+, $25 off $500+, 30% off $1,000+ *on most regular price items.  Loyalists get a $50 reward card for every $200 spent (if you're not a loyalist, it takes seconds to sign up!)

{Perfect time to pre order this tote and matching clutch - you basically get the clutch for about $10 with the discount!  Your card won't be charged until item is shipped}

Other Happenings:
+ I shared this recipe for Caesar Salad Bites earlier this week.  On the salad note, we are also huge greek salad fan - we've got a great little local restaurant that makes the most delicious version (we picked them up for lunch the other day!) and I'm trying to recreate it at home.  If anyone has any good greek salad recipes, please share with me below!

+ Dancing with the Stars was playing in the background on Monday (it's usually hit or miss for me depending on the season) and there are a few that I like but I am so Team Zee.  Ginger looked like she was having the best time out there.

+ Our Easter Eve menu was ever changed until yesterday when I needed to make the grocery list.  Holidays are the best to plan for and if you're still planning, you can find my inspiration and recipe ideas here.

+ If you missed reading up on my newest sponsor, Kelsey, you can do so here and today is also the last day for a chance to win her Lilly Pulitzer wine glass giveaway.  They are the perfect summer wine glass so don't miss out!

Happy Good Friday to all! Enjoy your celebrating this weekend and a very Happy Easter! xx
