Happy April ~ Letter From The Editor

Friday, April 1, 2016
April is off to a gloomy start. It's a gray, rainy day here in New Jersey. April is one of those strange transitional months where it's not quite warm or cold. It's not quite sunny or rainy. You never know how to dress because the weather is never reliable. I am looking forward to warmer days even if they are scattered among torrential downpours.

I am excited about the longer days and warmer weather for a chance to get out and about more often. I have a growing list of local places to feature on the blog, and I haven't had a chance to get out to explore with the short, winter days. Look for some fun recommendations this month on the blog.

I am also doing a Mother's Day fashion collaboration with Carly and Corine this month. We are being outfitted by Unpredictable Juno, a boutique located in Oakhurst, NJ. Unpredictable Juno features a gorgeous selection of apparel and accessories for any budget and taste. Just wait until you see our outfits!

I'll be sharing some spring wardrobe essentials and few fun spring fashion finds for the little girls too. There are so many cute things trending for spring from shoes to purses to tops and jeans. I'm already in the process of weeding out the chunky, bulky knits from my closet to make way for lighter, brighter pieces.

Many of you have been asking about the jewelry I wear. I'll be doing a post about my favorite pieces of jewelry, why they are special to me, and how I store them. Last month, I mentioned that I am working on a Q&A post. It is still in progress as I've been getting emails from readers up until now. I am going to cutoff the email submissions and go with what I have. If you're looking to learn a bit more about me, keep checking back for that post this month.

Don't forget to check out my SHOP MY FAVES page for all my current favorite items. I update the page daily, so there's always something new to discover!
