mimosas and rainboots












Shorts:  Gap  |  Sweater:  Gap  |  Wellies:  Nordstrom  |  Sunnies:  ASOS  
|  Bag:  MK

With the warm weather, comes unexpected storms!  I'm always try and be prepared with my umbrella and wellies!  Plus I love that they add a pop to any outfit - oh and today they matched my mimosa!  They are a definite must have in your wardrobe - I wish I had more colors!  It was a chill (and chilly) weekend of boating, a brunch or two and puppy sitting so not much on my end here.  I'm just hoping that it'll be nice again this weekend for a repeat! :)


Patio ping pong!


Lauren, John, Valerie and Nick (not pictured, Andrew - he wasn't wearing a salmon hue)


I loved the orange with the white print table on below.

Dress:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Scarf:  Sole Society  |  Hat:  Gap (similar here)  |  Bag:  MK  |  Watch:  KS  | Bracelets:  1/2/3  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban  |  Earrings:  BR  |  Sandals:  TJ Maxx (similar here)

Memorial Day is just around the corner.  It should be a great weekend weather wise to spend with friends and family and remember all those who have served or are serving.  I'll be puppy sitting {watch out IG followers!} and I'm super excited!!!!  I'm trying to figure out my plans {hopefully a BBQ or two - or even a boat day} as John will be on midnight shift (sleeping the days away - thumbs down).

P.S.  There will be sales, Sales, SALES!  I've already seen a couple good ones - Nordstrom, Kate Spade and I'm sure many more to follow.  I'm hoping to check out Gap, Loft and some other fun sites!  I'll definitely try and keep you in the loop - SHOP away!

John and I in front of Pimlico Racecourse - not as grand of an entrance as Saratoga!



Turf Race






Dirt Track




We thoroughly loved visiting Pimlico Racecourse and even more so enjoyed watching American Pharoah win the Preakness!!  Their race cocktail was the Black-Eyed Susan - it was light and refreshing - definitely a crowd pleaser.  I will say, that we're very fortunate to have the Saratoga Racecourse though.  It is more open (allowing air throughout the seats/walkways), it's not expensive to purchase a ticket, you can bring in all sorts of food and drinks (no glass though!), not to mention the concessions are 10X better and offer a variety of options.  Pimlico has something that Saratoga does not, THE INFIELD.  It was pretty crazy with concerts and private tents (where I'm sure celebrities hung out in).  I think I'd be too old for than and especially right after it rained during the Preakness race (MUDDY)!!  Since this was the first time I've been to Pimlico, I would definitely give it another shot since I now know what I know, however I'm looking forward to seeing the Belmont in June and have a Triple Crown winner! :)

button back blouse















Jacket:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Blouse:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Jeans:  Banana Republic  |  Espadrilles:  Target (similar style this year)  |  Bag:  Kate Spade  |  Earrings:  Frivolous (similar here)  |  Watch:  Kate Spade  |  Bracelet:  1/2

It cooled down this week a bit, but it's sure to warm back up.  Here's a peek at a spring look with or without the jacket!  I love having the bold colors and prints for this spring season - it's so great to mix and match!  My weekend is starting early as I'm headed to DC tonight - can't wait to share with you my visit! :)
