Loving Lately

Five Things I'm Loving This Week
One.  
Yesterday the weather was warm enough in Alabama to give us just a taste of Spring, so naturally I had to pull out the colorful maxi dress to wear to work. I wore this dress all the time last spring/summer, but it was almost too tight through the mid section. I put this dress on yesterday morning, however, and it was actually loose in areas that were too tight before. I spent the entire day smiling ear to ear as I strutted around the office in my loose fitting dress.

Two. 
While we are on the subject of clothes, I snagged this fabulous scarf from Fifth & Mae's flash sale a couple of weeks ago and it has quickly become my new go to accessory. I had actually been looking for an American Flag scarf for several months, so when I saw this one on sale I had to have it. It came in the mail last Saturday and I think I've already worn it four times...

Three. 
Our wedding date is fast approaching (50 days to be exact!!), so we've started getting pretty little packages like this one in the mail. My poor delivery man is going to really hate us by the time April comes around. I, on the other hand, am reminded just how blessed with are with amazing family and precious friends. Oh, and because I'm a bit OCD all of our wedding presents are currently displayed in our guest bedroom, where they will stay until we get home from the honeymoon and can unpack them all at one time.

Four.
Speaking of the honeymoon, Yesterday Hallie posted this off the shoulder sweater and now I'm obsessed. I get that most people will roll their eyes at the word "wifey," but I absolutely love it! Something like this would make for a perfect travel outfit to Jamaica! Don't you think? I need it and I don't care one bit about how cheesy I will look wearing it!

Five.
And this week ends with a massive case of Spring Fever. After a brutally cold winter (by Alabama standards) and the tease of warm weather we had this week, I am officially ready for spring. So long boot season. So long massive layers. Bring on the flip flops and spring dresses!! The weather may barely reach 60 degrees today, but that didn't stop me from pulling out the famous purple pants. Fingers crossed for a warm weekend!

 Linking up for Five on Friday.
