old navy finds

now that warm weather is here to stay, i've been doing quite a bit of shopping lately. i recently did a good closet clean-out (ahh, a clean closet is just the best) and started browsing for new spring and summer things.

each season, i save up to splurge on a few items that are somewhat expensive, but i try to be a bit more mindful with all of my other purchases. i feel like i recently hit the jackpot at old navy and wanted to share some of my finds with you! this swing dress is SO flattering. i already know i'm going to be reaching for it all the time. and although i already have a dozen chambray tops, i couldn't resist this chambray peplum tank top! the top is made from a lightweight cotton material and i love it. i'm all about breathable fabrics when it gets hot outside.

have a great weekend!

michelle adams' bathroom

michelle adams recently shared these photos of her newly renovated bathroom on her blog. i immediately pinned one of the photos, but really, this bathroom is so good that it should be shared here as well.

i feel like this is pretty close to my dream bathroom: lots of natural light, white subway tile, hex tiled floor... everything down to the blue and white striped turkish towel :)

things i'm loving right now

hello! hello! i'm sorry about the lack of posts lately. it's like one week i'm here and the next–poof!–i'm gone. definitely not ideal. it's been a combination of things: i've been occupied with other things, i've been feeling a little uninspired when it comes to blogging, and i just haven't had the time to put together a quality post.

the good news is that i really like this post! even though i haven't been posting as often, plenty of things still catch my eye on a daily basis. here are a few of them!

ONE: katie's new apartment! i've been living vicariously through katie's european adventures since she moved to denmark with her husband a few months ago. she shared a few snaps of their new apartment on her blog, and i can't get over how gorgeous and perfect those french doors are!

TWO: i love my ray-ban sunglasses. i've featured my clubmasters on here a handful of times, and i've had a pair of wayfarers for years. however, these clear cat eye frames are so much fun. plus, they're relatively inexpensive at just $20. they also come in a bunch of other colors.

THREE: i just bought my first pair of soludos, and now i'm already itching for a second. espadrilles are my go-to flats during the spring and summer and i love how sleek these leather espadrilles look!

FOUR: the more glowy i look, the happier i feel. i always swipe a little iridescent highlighter onto my cheekbones, but i really want to give this bronze-colored highlighter a try.

FIVE: i live for pretty cotton and linen tops when the weather gets hot. how cute is this embroidered linen top from j.crew?!

SIX: you might disagree with me, but i think these metallic birkenstocks are totally cool.

SEVEN: i received this face mask for christmas and maybe used it once or twice. it's not that i didn't like it, but i prefer detoxifying masks more. BUT... i recently discovered that this mask can be used as on overnight treatment and now i'm in love with it. it hydrates your skin as well as brightens it, and my skin looks and feels great when i wake up each morning!

recent instagrams

i hope you had a great week! after taking a break from posting on instagram for a few months, i've just started sharing again. when it comes to social media and blogging, i'm all about sharing content that you're proud of, that you love, and that makes you happy. this is a relatively new mindset for me (a little more than a year), but it's had such a positive impact on my life. granted, my following outside of pinterest isn't very big, but i never feel like i have to force myself to post something because it's been X amount of days since the last time i tweeted or instagrammed. it's a very freeing and refreshing experience. one i would definitely recommend if you have the chance!

whatever you're up to this weekend, i hope it's good! shopping details for these snaps are listed below.

domino and porter magazines / glossier stretch concealer and generation g lipstick / pottery barn faux fur pillow (the softest thing everrrr)

mansur gavriel bucket bag / chloe lauren scalloped flats / j.crew boyfriend jeans (old... these are my new favorites) / madewell sweater / everlane swing trench coat
