Celebrating in Polka Dots & Floral


Today my post is a bit early in celebration of my blogger friend Ada's, from Elegance and Mommyhood, birthday!  Ada is a mommy to a darling little 5 year old girl, who she often twins with over on  her blog.  Ada was one of the very first bloggers to really show me support and encouragement.  I know that my girl Ada is going to have a fairly different version of her birthday this year, as are all people whose birthdays will land at this COVID-19 crisis, so I wanted to have a little drink and cupcake in her honor.  






These days we aren't having many events to dress up for, but lately I've been really craving the need to look and feel pretty again.  Maybe its the fact that the weather has finally warmed up, and I am dreaming of patio drinks with friends.  Or maybe it's the fact that it's been months since the last time my husband and I had a date night.  Or the fact that I can be totally dress casually for working from home.  Or all of the above.  Regardless of the reasons why, lately I am dressing up just for the sake of dressing up even if it's only for a few hours.  For example, sometimes I just dress up for work to recreate that sense of normalcy.  Or I put some heels on to go to the grocery store.  Or I might dress up just to meet up with my girlfriends over video chat.  Whatever the reason, I know that I am going to be dressing up in this little outfit again for Mother's Day dinner (which I may even order in, instead of cooking it myself).  I am hoping as things begin to lift and slowly we try to return to some version of normal in June and over the summer months,  I get to wear this out for a brunch or a real date night in a restaurant, with good wine, and no children.  I love them so much but I won't lie, I am looking forward to an evening with just my husband, without bickering and chattering.   We may even just sit in silence.  LOL!  


This darling top is on mega sale now, so check out the link below, and your can also see it styled here and it pairs so well with jeans and heels.  It's a top that just about works with everything and I adore the girly vibe it throws off.  


What are you missing right now?  





Come back on Friday to read a Mommy Diaries post.  This is going to be an honest and raw post, discussing how parenting is full of tough decisions and how to navigate through disappointments.  Also, I would love for you to follow me on IG!

    1. Thank you so much. It felt good to pull out those pumps, even for a short while, but I enjoyed it and sat on the deck and enjoyed the sunshine on my face. I'll take these small gifts of time.

  6. Bo, this outfit is so fabulous! I love the mix of tiny dots and bold florals and this color combination is one of my favorites ever! I have been trying to get a little more dressed up lately as well, but it is still so cold here that all I want to wear is leggings and oversized sweaters! Thanks for linking up with me!

    1. The cold returned! Argh. Seriously over the up and down of emotions lately. Hahaha. Today I spent all day in workout gear and I just leaned into it. Some days I have all the pep in need and other days it's comfort all the way.

  7. What a fabulous look. I am all about pattern mixing but kind of shy when it comes to doing it myself. This is right up my alley with the tiny dots and floral mixed. Love the bows on the shoulders of that darling top. Great outfit. And check out your legs, girl!!

  10. Such a fun print mix and that is a beautiful skirt! :) I like the cupcake too, yum! We have our final isolation birthday part next month for my son - we have celebrated 4 in home isolation so far, it's been hard! But with them lifting the restrictions we may be able to have a small gathering (up to 10 people) at the park for that so fingers crossed we stay on track and all the restrictions are lifted as they plan!

    Hope you had a good weekend! It was a big day here, first day back at school for my son today after 6 weeks - it was closed because of the virus!

    Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! The new link up is live on my blog now, I'd love you to join again.

    1. Oh man, 4 birthdays!!!! Yikes! I do hope it works out for you to gather outdoors in celebration. It's nice to start seeing people, even though we are all still social distancing, we are at least re-connecting. Fingers crossed everyone can move towards regaining some normalcy one baby step at a time.
