DRESS: Ted Baker // CARDIGAN: Halogen (color: ‘heather oatmeal’) // FLATS: Valentino // BAG: Chloe (color: ‘cement pink’)  // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker // LIPSTICK: MAC ‘Divine Divine’

I have been obsessively stalking the cherry blossoms blooming around the city! They are so dreamy and these were taken at Sakura Park uptown – they are in peak bloom right now and so pretty! I wore this Ted Baker dress from Nordstrom that I absolutely love. This Halogen cardigan I want in every color because it goes so great over tank dresses for spring. Nordstrom has soo much cute stuff for spring right now – I went a little wild and ended up getting Rosie some shoes in anticipation for a vacation we have this November haha! So far away but how amazing are these gellies?!?!?? The popsicle melting?! I mean come on. Above are some more spring pieces from Nordstrom that I love!

  8. Well hon, thanks for introducing me to this great new cardigan. I love the dress but dresses always fit odd on me so I always have to try on ????

    1. Thank you!! And yes! I know what you mean, it’s an adjustment for me too 🙂

  11. I know this question is completely unrelated to the post but I was wondering where could I buy the moroccan oil shampoo and conditioner in the bonus size as they do not have them on their website? I am hesitant to get them from other sites.

    1. Oh no worries!! Have you checked Amazon? That’s usually my go-to 🙂

  12. The cherry blossoms are undoubtedly the most gorgeous sign of spring! So is your gorgeous outfit! <3

    First of all: I absolutely love your blog. It simply radiates happiness and I can’t help but hope that my future family will be just like yours. You always look stunning and of course you deserve endless credit for looking like that despite having two children!

    On your Snapchat I just saw that you’ll be going to Amsterdam. I am German but am moving to Amsterdam in just a few days actually. Will you be doing a Meetup in the Netherlands? It would be the most awesome thing.

    Either way, please keep sharing all those beautiful moments.

And those shoes for Rosie are adorable! Even though November is so far away, you really had to get those now because they’ll probably sell out before November…just in case you needed help justifying the purchase 😉 Lol
