Crushing on Coral

Happy Friday dolls and congrats to Mike T. who won a pair of tickets to Rock the Catwalk on May 1st! Don't forget, you can still get your tickets here

Your comments on what color you're most looking forward to breaking out this spring really got me thinking. From pastels to greens to white with pops of color, I can tell that I'm not the only one itching for this weather to break. I wholeheartedly agree with Rachel who commented that navy is the new black (!!) and Jen who mentioned my absolute favorite combination--pairing it with coral. Needless to say, I've got those navy basics down pat so I'm on the hunt to add some coral to my life.

Catching Up

{Just a few more days to enter my Rock the Catwalk giveaway!! A winner will be picked on Friday}

Hello there! I can't believe it's already the end of March. I gotta tell you, so far, this year has flown by. I swear it was just Christmas. There's been quite a bit going on in the SMITTEN household and I'm really looking forward to enjoying spring and summer at a much slower pace. Does it ever really happen? We'll see....

Between the craziness that was planning Jump Back Ball, applying for - and getting - a promotion and negotiating a new contract, I have been completely overwhelmed and going non-stop since November. Whew! I also made the decision to leave my wonderful colleagues in Westlake to take a position at our Public Square location. Working across the street from Noodlecat while finally getting to live and work in Cleveland proper won over the convenience to working across from Trader Joe's and Nordstrom Rack. I hope my credit card will thank me. It's also quite fitting that my first day at PSQ just so happens to be my birthday. 

I did manage to take the first week of March to jet off to Florida to enjoy a bit of sunshine with my two nephews, Penton and Tanner. But we all know what happens when you finally stop to catch your breath. I woke up on Tuesday of a week-long vacay, sick. But I must say, if you're going to have bronchitis you might as well be in sunny, 80 degree weather, looking at palm trees. #justsayin

What's been going on with you? What are you loving for spring? There are so many inspiring trends for the season that I can't wait to wear once this weather breaks. 

Also.....Mad Men is almost back!!!!!!!!! And we all know what that means.

Sunny Skies Ahead - 10 Resort Essentials

While I'm girl who thoroughly enjoys all four seasons (especially winter) there is something to be said about escaping everything in your life to holiday somewhere tropical. Leaving all the stresses of work behind and immersing myself in a good book, pile of magazines and a few cocktails is just what the doctor ordered.
