I am brimming over in anticipation of the upcoming, and much needed, girls weekend.  We are all dear friends from our college days and each with busy chaotic lives.  As we grow older and our families and responsibilities grow bigger, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get together.  So, this weekend we will rejuvenate those friendships, poolside, with a drink in each hand!  Always in favor of adding a theme to any party, I will be channelling these lovely ladies and might be sporting one {or more} of these fiesta inspired goodies.

Entertain Me

Gardens in May burst with magnificent color.  Why not take advantage of Mother Nature's handiwork and host a garden party this Memorial Day weekend.  Take a break from the traditional, yet always fun, pool party and dazzle your friends and family with a whimsical backyard soiree.  Create a menu using fresh produce from your local farmer's market for a dinner as beautiful as your surroundings.

Pin of the Week

Although we are transitioning from nursery to big girl room with Vivi and have no plans to decorate another nursery anytime soon, I could not help but swoon over the design of this room.  Talk about the modern traditionalist.  Shelli, from a la mode maven, curated the perfect balance through the use of graphic fabrics and timeless silhouettes.  I love how elegant the baby clothes look in the gold leaf frames, darling!  See more of this room at Baby Lifestyles.

Twin Beds

A childhood friend of mine had two twin beds in her room when we were growing up and I always loved the look and functionality of it.  When my husband's aunt asked if we were interested in the twin beds she was no longer using I had to jump at her offer.  And when I saw them in person I was head over heals.  Today, we had those very beds installed in Vivi's room and her baby bed removed.  Sleeping arrangements around here are about to get interesting.

Fab Find Friday

I am dying to incorporate a little mint into my summer wardrobe with this Viscid watch from Anthropologie.  At $58 how can you resist?!


Pin of the Week

I stumbled upon this street style image, originally blogged by whippedStyle, while browsing through Pinterest this week and cannot get her casual cool summer vibe off my mind.  The juxtaposition of the eyelet dress and the rough denim vest works so well!  You better believe I will be adding these items to my summer wish list, especially those sunnies!  And I couldn't resist throwing in that darling Juicy eyelet dress for the littlest fashionista too.
