Friday Finds: 20% off Jeans + More Spring Faves

This Friday is a crazy one. You see, today I'm moving out of my apartment that I've lived in for two years here in Michigan. Who knew you could acquire so much stuff in just two years?! I've been throwing out junk, organizing, and packing for almost 3 weeks now. I can't wait to move into my new apartment in a few weeks, but for now I'm living with my future mother-in-law (the new lease didn't quite line up, so that's why there's a bit of a gap in the timing!) The move couldn't have come at a worse time, as I leave on Sunday for Bloom Bash Florida, but it all got done nonetheless.

Anyways, on to our Friday Finds!

1. Anthropologie: 25% additional off sale + 20% off full price jeans. A good pair of jeans is the best investment, in my opinion. I've had a few pairs of jeans since my first year of college and they're still going strong! Here are my favorite styles:

Don't forget to check out tops under $50 on the sale rack, because you also get the additional 25% off!

2. LOFT: 40% off on spring arrivals! This is one of my very favorite places to shop. Cute, simple and affordable! I love all their basic tees and tanks. I also just bought this black romper (in a XS petite) and I ADORE it!

That's all for this week :) Happy Weekend!

Favorite Mother's Day Cards

one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine

I'm a huge gift lover-- whether giving or receiving, I absolutely LOVE picking out cards and gifts. Are you familiar with the 5 Love Languages? If so, you'll realize mine is "gifts" ;) My mom always loved me really well in this area. When I was younger and would go to camp, she would pack my bag full of notes, cards and little gifts I got to open throughout my week away (I hated camp! ha!) My first year of college, she had all my friends and family write me a card and wrap a small gift for me to open each day for the first few MONTHS of school. It was such a blessing!

Because of this, I always have the best time picking out Mother's Day cards (and the actual present, too!) I rounded up a few of the prettiest cards I could find. Chalkboard backgrounds, lots of florals, rose gold calligraphy-- there's something for everyone. Most of these cards I think are beautiful enough to frame! Don't forget to check my Mother's Day Gift Ideas right here.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Wedding Bliss: Bridal Hair Ideas

SOURCESblonde bun / half up twist / brunette curls chignon / flower / blonde chignon / down with veil / braid bun / braid crown / loose half up / twisted half up

Putting together my wedding day look is one of my favorite things to day dream about! It always ends with me smiling and thinking "holy cow! This is really happening!" :)

Because of the dress I chose (my mom and I had the best day saying yes to the dress back in December!) I will have my hair up for the ceremony. This isn't my favorite way to wear my hair, but I know it will look best with my dress. After the ceremony, I will have my hair transitioned into a half-down twisted / braided look. I'm really excited about having pictures both ways! Above are some of my inspiration pictures for my looks. The top biggest image (with blonde hair and the low bun) is probably what I will end up copying, more or less. It's just so simple, pulled together and elegant!

How did you wear your hair for your big day?

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

DETAILSrobe / tote / necklace / tray / heart necklace / scarf (under $40) / water bottle / trinket tray / monogram compact 

Mother's Day is coming up (May 8th!) so it's time to start thinking about something sweet to gift our mamas. I picked out what I'll be giving my mom (but I can't say, because she reads my blog!) so I rounded up a few favorite gift ideas. Jewelry and watches, PJs, candles, framed pictures, a pretty shirt, or a beautiful bouquet of flowers are also great choices, in addition to the things above.

I love what Farmgirl Flowers are all about! Send your mom a giant bouquet of peonies!! 

Or get your mom a sweet, curated gift box. I love Box + Bow's Mother's Day Box!

What's the best gift you've ever given your mom?
