I have been obsessing with the upcoming Spring season for several reasons:
Spring break -yeahhhh!! moms gone wild (haha, I wish!) and yummy green beer for St. Patrick’s day!
Wedding bells for my sister and that is going to be such an intimate and beautiful celebrating in ONE cabin with my family (16 adults and 13 children)- this is going to be so much fun and so crowded, lol!
The meaning behind Pieces of Emerald! May’s birthstone is Emerald. In May, we celebrate mine, Ryland’s and Rori’s birthday- this is a busy and special month for our family. Through my Instagram and my blog, I enjoy being creative and giving you all a piece of our life and that is how Pieces of Emerald was born!
Spring Must Haves
Let’s get to it! I have been obsessing over round bags, straw totes, and bamboo bags lately! I seriously can’t even handle how happy these bags are making me! These bags are perfect for the beach, jeans paired with wedges, or even a floral fun maxi dress! They basically go with EVERYTHING!
Wedges are always a good idea when it comes to spring and summer! Wedges are so easy to dress up any look and for the most part, comfortable! Wedges can be worn with just about anything you currently own in your closet! I also love Birkenstocks because as a mama, I need a quick get ready fix (it’s actually quite funny because I used to hate these shoes 2 years ago and now I own way too many than i’d like to admit).
I am a sucker for anything with tassels and fringe, they are just so much fun and really sets the tone to any outfit! Statement earrings can dress up the most basic outfit!
I loveee being tan, but I don’t want to do tanning beds! so I either get a professional spray tan or I use St Tropez self tanner. Also, let’s not forget sunscreen! I recently tried supergoop! and so far I am a fan! I use it all over my body and it is gentle enough for Ryland and Rori.
As the weather gets warmer don’t forget to use a chapstick with SPF! I personally use Lypsyl primarily, but when I am going to sunbathe I like to switch out my everyday chaptstick for something with SPF. I prefer this chapstick from Sugar because it is tinted with some color!
