The excitement

As far as I'm concerned, there is no better time, then a time when I can wear the first little white dress of the season. Mixing one up with a black leather jacket has been on my 'to-wear' list for a long time, and to really de-emphasise the girlyness of a white dress I threw on the studded pumps and studded bag.

Although, if we are being honest, a tiny bag more for looks than function and a pointy toe pump could not be any more girly.

Yesterday the Lilly Pulitzer for Target line launched, I got up bright and early and was in the store by ten after eight. All of the clothes were wiped out. I know that most of them are going to end up on eBay with prices twice the list. This makes me furious. I know Target will restock, and it's highly likely I will get that adorable flamingo print dress, and hopefully even the beach chairs, but still, I got up early on a Sunday and I feel like those greedy people deprived me of my precious sleep.

At least I didn't leave completely empty handed - there was one pineapple serving bowl left.

Signs of spring

Things are finally starting to look and feel like spring. The sunny days are peppered with rainy ones, but this week has felt like a huge turning point in the weather. No longer are we trending below average!

While I can be a bit a wimp when it comes to taking photos in the rain, it was barely misting, and the center of New Canaan, CT is too pretty to not take photos in, rain or shine.

Camel blazer

I don't think I fully realized how much I distanced myself from all my favorite work staples last year during my unemployment.

All my usual pencil skirts and blazers that were previously on constant repeat sat dormant. Since I'm linking this post up with Happiness at Mid-Life's Throw Back Thursday, I looked up the last time I wore this camel blazer, and it was November 2013!

It seems like it was long over due for a wear, and hopefully many more in the near future.

Never miss a chance to save with Shopular

If there is one thing I like to be certain of when I shop, it's that I'm getting the best possible deal. When it comes to shopping online, it's easy to quickly search for a coupon code before placing my order, but what about when I'm shopping in a store? Even when I do receive mailers from my frequently shopped favorites, I never remember what the sale dates are, or to bring the coupons with me.

Now with the effortlessly simple app Shopular, I never have to worry about that again. Shopular is linked up with hundreds of stores and has a constantly updated database of all the active coupons, as well as the weekly flyers and deals. By allowing the app to use my location, it will even send me a push notification of a deal when I enter a store.

One I downloaded Shopular, I added all the places I love to shop to my favorites list - everything from Banana Republic to Starbucks, and then I could view a feed of all the active coupons.

I went into Kohl's but forgot my mailer - no problem - I opened Shopular and had a coupon with barcode that could be scanned at the register.

Did you know that Starbucks was offering a BOGO deal on their Chai Tea Lattés? I did, because Shopular let me know!

The app is a free download, so why not give it a try? You've got nothing to lose and only savings to gain!

Windchill

Getting these photos was no easy task - it was one of the windiest days we've had and about 90% of the photos taken (and discarded) were with my hair in my face, a billowing mess of curls.

Thankfully there were a few keepers, and while March didn't get the memo that it was supposed to go out like a lamb, hopefully April will?
