Nautical & A Few of My Favorite Things

Today in addition to an outfit, I am going to share a peak into a few of my favorite things and a glance into my life!
I hope everyone had an amazing Easter! I know I sure did! God sure has blessed me and my little family! I actually wore this outfit to Church yesterday. It wasn’t the outfit I had wanted to wear, but it was raining pretty hard so I decided to do a quick change so I could incorporate boots (which would be a must for the Easter egg hunt later if the rain stopped. I had about 15 minutes to get ready so I thought I would stick with a classic nautical style that I could throw together quick and still look put together. A simple stripped dress looks instantly more polished when combined with a red belt and a navy blazer. What is your go to style when you are short on time, but want to looked polished?

This bracelet is just adorable! I found it recently while browsing through Impulse- a local boutique here in town!

Now for a sneak peak at a few of my favorite things!

Pearls – Need I say more?? What girl doesn’t love a set off pearls? These are a three strand set that I wear constantly (browse through my archives for pictures of them worn with various outfits). This picture frame was a gift from my sweet niece after the birth of my son. I absolutely love it!  
This is a close up of the necklace hanging on the picture frame. This was also a gift from my niece. Behind the birthstone gem is two little feet. I have picture of Peyton’s feet from an ultrasound done early in our pregnancy and ever since then I have been completely in love with those ten little toes!
Saw these bracelets and watch the other day at a local boutique and instantly fell in love. The band of the watch is mint so it is perfect for this season! Best of all – all of them where under $40!
Words can’t describe how much I love this little rascal. I was trying to cook breakfast Sunday morning before Church but little man just wanted Mommy. So of course I obliged and held him while proceeding to scramble eggs! This is me all natural. I do try to wear something that makes me feel pretty because to be honest it makes me feel better. If I wear something crappy I tend to feel crappy so what better way to put yourself in a good mood than by wearing a bright pink! I haven’t brushed my hair (or teeth for that matter) and have on ZERO makeup so brace yourself before the next photo!
My world in a 34 pound package :)
Love this face! Guah Mom... another picture... LOL.. Love him!!
I hope you all enjoyed this sneak peak into a few of my favorite things and into my home!!  
XOXO Misty
