Color! Color! Color!

Summer is right around the corner, and I am loving all of this color!

Being a mom, it is crazy hard to find time to shop. This was literally 15 very quick minutes in the dressing room to grab a few pieces. (And my husband was doing a little spring refresher, too!) BUT I wanted to make sure I shared my favorites!! And all of these new arrivals are 40% off online, and everything else is up to 60% off! I love a good sale!

And don’t forget this darling striped number that has been blowing up my Instagram! This colorful dress is crazy soft and would be perfect with wedges and a statement cuff! It is screaming for a patio with a jalapeno margarita!!

Speaking of a jalapeno margarita! Here is one of my favorite recipes from Tim Love’s Lonesome Dove restaurant in Fort Worth, TX.

Tim Love’s Jalapeno Cucumber Margarita
