My Spring Picks


Spring has sprung for most brands and over the weekend I saw so many awesome spring trends. It's all about pastels, flower prints, neutrals and fun accessories. I thought I would share with you my early spring picks. 

1. Kendra Scott recently released their spring collection and everything is just so gorgeous. I really love the Hallie Statement Earrings that were gifted to me. The details in the wire braiding are so fun and eye-catching. These make a great statement, but are so light and airy. 

2. I love a good t-shirt dress. They are so comfortable and make an easy go-to outfit. Throw on a light cardigan or denim jacket and pair it with sandals or some white sneaker for an effortless look. I really love this dress in green, but it comes in several colors too. 


3. If you need a shoe to go with everything this spring and summer season, you'll need to snag these sandals. They are comfortable with a nice block heel and they will be for sure be a repeat offender in your wardrobe. 

4. You will need a classic chambray top in your spring wardrobe. Just like the sandals I mentioned above, a chambray top will also go with anything your wear. I love the ruffle detail on the sleeves and it just so cute! 

5. It's not surprising that I would gravitate toward blush when I saw this dress. It's light and airy and so flirty. It comes in several colors too. This dress in white would be so fun too! 


6. I love my cognac Madewell tote I wear every day but mixing in a rattan handbag for spring is so fun and will instantly give your look some flair. How cute is this bag? 


7. White sneakers are one of the biggest spring trends right now and I found the perfect pair. The eyelet and scallops gave me instant heart eyes. It's another great pair to add to your closet. 


8. I snagged this floral tee over the weekend and I love it. I have seen it a lot recently when I scroll through Instagram and I've already been inspired to wear it so many different ways. Would y'all want to see how I mix it up? I think that would be a fun post! 



So, what are your favorite picks?

4 Fun Ways To Celebrate Valentine's Day With Your Family + DIY Valentine Dessert Charcuterie Board



Valentine's Day has become more about showing my family love than it is a romantic holiday for us. Ever since I had the kids I have had so much fun celebrating with them. Since it's the start of Valentine's Day week I wanted to share some fun ways to celebrate this week of love with your family.

1. Festive Family Dinner - On this week's menu I thought it would be fun for us to make our own heart-shaped personalized pizzas. The kids always have a blast customizing their pizzas and it's a great way for everyone to get involved and spend time together over a yummy meal. I'll be sharing how our pizzas turn out later in the week on my Instagram Stories so if you aren't following me, make sure you do so you don't miss out on our adventures (@gitterandjuls)

2. Love Notes - I usually get small candy treats for the kids and last year I included handmade valentine cards. As part of kids' valentines this year, I am including love notes that lists 14 reasons why I love each of one of them. I can't wait for the kids to read them and I hope they feel extra-loved!

3 - Acts of Love & Kindness - I am challenging everyone to reach out to someone in an act of kindness each day this week. For every act of kindness they get a Hershey kiss. I  think it's important to spread kindness every day and this is just a fun way to positively reinforce it!

4- Friday Night In - This year, Valentine's Day is on a Friday. A fun way to celebrate that doesn't cost much for a family of 6 is to order take-out and snuggle up for a good old fashion movie night! I took a stab at creating my very first Valentine dessert charcuterie board. I thought it would be a fun treat for us to have while we watch a movie together. I did some Pinterest-ing for inspiration and I wrote down a few treats to pick up that I know everyone in my family loves like strawberries, Twizzler's, gummies, popcorn, pretzels and chocolates. You can create your own DIY dessert charcuterie board with your own family's favorites! Simply assemble everything on a big platter or board and utilizing any little bowls you own. Just have fun as there is no right or wrong way to create your own charcuterie board! Friday is a still a few days away so you still have time to create your own! Here is a closer look at my first attempt my own charcuterie board and I can't wait to recreate it again on Friday!




How do you plan to spend your Valentine's Day? However you spend your day/night I hope you're surrounded by love!!
