ON MY RADAR

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. 

TWO // Monogrammed Camel Linen Napkins

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!

I already know I will be purchasing this Tuckernuck top in multiple colors, too! I have a similar top from Tuckernuck that looks a lot like style, but it’s much thicker and I love it. I think it’s called the Jojo top? Highly recommend to everyone!

Happy Friday to you! On the topic of active wear that you can wear during your pregnancy: I bought a suit from Youswim two years ago and absolutely love it. They’re one size fits most but you can’t tell just by looking; they hug curves perfectly and have the cutest neckline! I have the Aplomb one piece and can’t recommend it enough. Some of the colors are kind of out there but they have a great classic black and red. Might be just the thing to get you through this summer and beyond!

Bradley of Luella & June posted an item from that Etsy shop earlier this week.

The tulips are gorgeous! Try dropping a penny (from 1981 or older) into your vase to perk them up when they start to droop. I learned this on TikTok and it works shockingly well.

I like the carrots and the tulips. Children enjoy it when you decorate for every season / holiday. We already are in Easter mood with chocolate eggs but I might some woven carrots 🥕 and bunnies 🐰

Love Tory Burch sportswear, only if I was sporty enough! LOL Also, your maternity style will be such a nice change from the disasters I wore with my first. I love decorating for holidays, Easter included. I still have not put anything out. Still getting out of the Covid blues. I found very cute similar carrots at Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby has great decor for great prices. They even have a whole new display of a collab with Southern Marsh. I bought another set of pillows that remind me of VV.
