Hope your Easter weekend is off to a good start!  We enjoyed a beautiful spring day finally so we had a picnic at the park.  Since I am almost always showing my work OOTD's on the blog, it's fun to show a casual outfit once in a while.  This chambray dot shirt sold out pretty quickly...but one random one in my size recently showed up on the sales rack at my local J.Crew...I really did not need it at all but love it already.  I think I may even be able to make it work for corporate wear with a blazer and pencil skirt. 

I have been wanting a denim jacket for a while but did not want to invest much money in one, as I won't wear it very often. This one from Old Navy is perfect, in shape and price.  I bought a small because I wanted it to fit really snug...if denim jackets are even slightly boxy, they just look too 80's to me!  But if you don't want it really snug you may want to size runs a bit small.  During the same visit these cords were on the sale rack for $9.99...I love the springy green color so they came home with me too.  They're really comfy but have a bit more of a "jegging" shape than I'm used to!

How cute is my littlest boy?  He just recently became potty-trained now so we are all finished with diapers in our house.  It's a bittersweet victory, as we've had diapers around for 7 years and now that we're finished it means all my babies are growing up. 

Thanks for reading!
