The Perfect Summer Cardigan

Summer Cardigan

Spring has finally arrived here in New England, which means it's time put away the winter jackets, and pull out the sundresses!  Since it's not quite warm enough to run out the door sans sleeves, little sweaters and lightweight jackets have become a staple in my wardrobe, and this wrap knit cardigan is the perfect addition.  Not only is the lightweight material ideal for a spring day, but I love the eyelet detailing and wrap style.  It adds a feminine touch to my jeans and tank, plus it's a great sweater for throwing over sleeveless dresses.  Although I'm loving the crispness of the white, it also comes in a beautiful mint color.

Amazon gift guide for women

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11

Mother's Day is this Sunday!  Anyone else a last minute shopper and still have gifts to buy? All I can say is thank goodness for Amazon Prime! If you're in same the boat as I am, don't worry, I've got you covered.  I've rounded up some cute gift ideas for that special lady in your life, plus they can all be delivered in two days!

1. Bath Bombs.  When I think of Mother's Day, I think of pampering that special woman, and nothing screams pampering more than a relaxing bath.  Not only are these bath bombs beautiful, but they're 100% natural and have gotten a ton of great reviews!

2. Initial Necklace.  As a mom, I love wearing my kids initials or names around my neck!  These make the perfect gift as they're sentimental and have a personal touch.  Plus, they layer perfectly with other necklaces.

3. Drop Earrings.  Not only are statement earrings on trend this season, but they're perfect for summer since many women love wearing their hair up on a hot day.  These earrings are great for all ages, and come in a variety of shapes and colors, 40 colors to be exact!  

4. Bathrobe.  Anyone else love cozying up in a bathrobe after a long day?  Summer and winter, it's the first thing that I put on in the morning to drink my coffee, and the last thing I wear before bed, to drink my wine! This one looks ultra plush, and comes in a variety of colors.

5. Rose Quartz Roller.  I haven't tried using a jade or rose quartz roller yet, but I've heard great things about them, and will be getting this one for myself.  They are said to help with circulation, decrease puffiness and dark circles, and help lift the face. This one has great reviews, as does this option here.

6. Succulents.  I love this succulent collection! They make a great alternative to flowers, yet still add a little cheer to any room.

7. Travel Coffee Mug.  I don't know about you, but I'm always running out the door with coffee and kids in tow.  I'm sure most moms with school age children can relate!  This travel mug is super cute, and comes in a few colors/phrases.

8. Rattan Bag.  Every woman loves a new bag, and this one is perfect for summer! It also comes in a white which is super cute!

9. Floral Scarf.  Scarfs have always been one of my go-to items for giving.  Almost every woman wears them, and you can never go wrong in size.  I'm loving the colors and floral print of this one for summer.  It can be worn around the neck, as a hair accessory, and as a swim cover up!  Plus it's also available in 12 other colors!

10. Silk Pillow Case.  Do you sleep with a silk pillowcase yet? Not only do they help prevent wrinkles, but also help to keep your hair smooth, and not tangled at night.  I love these ones as they are affordable, yet feel super luxurious! They're also available in multiple colors.

11. Sunglasses.  In my opinion, a woman can never have too many pairs of sunglasses, and with summer fast approaching, now is the perfect time for a new pair!  I recently added this pair to my wardrobe and love them.  They also come with other lens colors and in a tortoiseshell frame.

And if these ideas don't work, you can never go wrong with a gift card to her favorite store, flowers, or a framed photo of her kids/grandkids!

Black Jumpsuit

*This post contains affiliate links.

Hi friends!  Anyone else loving jumpsuits as much as I am this season?  I'm so happy that they're in style, not only because they are fun to wear, but I love that you don't have to put any effort into getting dressed when wearing one.  You just jump into it, and are ready to head out the door!

I recently added this black number to my wardrobe and have been wearing it non-stop.  I love that it can be worn both on the shoulders, or off, and the cotton/polyester blend gives it a cozy feel.  The best part is the price.  It's under $25!!  It's perfect to throw on for a casual Sunday afternoon, or dress it up with heels for drinks with the girls.

Note:  Although I find this jumpsuit comfortable, I was hoping it would be a tad bit softer.  For the price though, I think it's a great purchase, and it is soft enough that I've been wearing it constantly. Also, because of my larger chest, I don't love how the material falls when I pull it off one shoulder.  I'm thinking if I sized up, it would fall better.  I am wearing a size small.
