Happy Friday! I wanted to give a big plug to the Whole Foods’ tulip selection. They were on sale this weekend and I picked up a couple of bunches on a whim. They didn’t look that special in the store, honestly, but they have been blooming in the most beautiful way!! The picture below was a couple of days in and now they’re doing that fun twisty, curvy thing tulip stems do to find the light. I can’t begin to tell you how much joy they have sparked throughout the week. They’re typically not my first choice when I am picking out flowers, but now I think they may just be my favorite.
ON MY RADAR 3.12.21
Here’s what has been on my radar this week. (More retail links than usual. I haven’t done as much of my usual scrolling and I’ve clearly done more online spring-excitement induced shopping!)
ONE // The CUTEST Tennis Skirt
I want to try to play tennis this spring/summer. I think it’ll be a great way to stay active and get outside. Even though I probably won’t be super competitive, I’d love to go out and hit the ball around with a friend. I will be limited in what I can wear, but if you have tennis on your schedule… you need this skirt. The french blue piping is absolutely perfect.
I found this Etsy shop through Luella and June! Anyway, I was obsessed with everything. I must have sent links to six friends knowing they’d love certain products too. This little camel napkin basically stole my heart. Isn’t he (she?) darling?
THREE // A Knit Polo
Okay…. this polo shirt is one of the best shirts I’ve purchased in a while. My friend Elsa recommended it and she did not disappoint!!! It’s chic but also incredibly comfortable. Initially I bought it in a couple of colors, and I’m almost embarrassed to admit how many colors I ended up buying it in. Once I tried it on, I knew it was going to be a staple for me throughout my pregnancy. (But don’t worry, this is a great shirt bump or not.) Expect to see it quite a bit in my weekly outfit roundups!
FOUR // “Adjusting to Motherhood”
One of my dear internet friends has an incredible podcast. I’m so proud of her for doing this. Creating a podcast nowadays can be so intimidating, but she is knocking it out of the park!!!! The podcast is all about relationships and I really think no matter what stage of life you’re in, there’s at least one episode that will resonate with you. When I found out I was pregnant, I made a note to go back and listen to her parenting-related episodes. I really loved this one called “Adjusting to Motherhood.” I found it very reassuring as I am about to enter this new chapter of my life.
FIVE // Decorative Carrots
I’ve never decorated for “spring” (i.e. Easter) besides just seasonal flowers. But…. I saw these woven carrots at Target. Oh and now that I’m looking at them again online, I noticed you can get a WREATH with the carrots. Cheesy?? Maybe a tiny bit, but it seems so cute too! Oh, and some woven eggs!
