Happy March Madness friends!
The next couple days are some of my favorite of the year. Full days of basketball watching, what could be better? (Okay, I’m sure lots of things but I love it so much.) Obviously I’ll be cheering for my Kentucky Wildcats (and picking them in all my brackets) but the best part of the day is those last minute upsets. I was watching one of the play-in games on Tuesday and found myself fully invested in a random Ole Miss vs. BYU game.
Even though I know a lot of people are probably rooting against the #1 seed Cats, I’ll be rocking blue today. So I thought I’d round up some of my favorite big blue looks to get ready for tip-off at 9:45 pm.
p.s. – I’m doing a Ladies Only Bracket Challenge that you need to get in on. $10 a bracket/2 bracket max. All the details are there once you sign up. So head over here, sign up (password: pink) and pick your favorites.

Today is my favorite day of the year. Yup, it’s my birthday. My St. Patrick’s Day, March Madness birthday and honestly, I just don’t feel much like doing a regular old post. And since it’s my bday, I’m gonna do what I want, which will most likely be eating my weight in sweets and filling out as many brackets as I can get my hands on.
I hope you’re wearing some green and make time later to have a celebratory cocktail (on a Tuesday). And if you’re also in the mood to fill out some brackets, I’m doing a Ladies Only Bracket Challenge that you need to get in on. $10 a bracket/2 bracket max. All the details are there once you sign up. So head over here, sign up (password: pink) and pick your favorites.

The snow is melting, our clocks have sprung forward and the mad dash around here that starts with the NCAA Tournament and ends with the Kentucky Derby has begun. It may seem crazy to be talking about Derby already but it’s officially time to start planning.
Over the weekend, I rounded up some good friends, bright dresses and fabulous hats to shoot my, now annual, Derby inspiration posts. This year, we got the crazy talented Jaclyn Journey in on the action to create some floral backdrops for the dresses. I can’t wait for you all to see all of Whitney Neal’s pictures. (heck, I can’t wait to see them all too!)
It will be at least another week or so until the Derby Dresses of the Day start flowing so until then I thought I’d share a little look at what we got in to this weekend. Once they do start though, it will be one a day until we’re off to the races!
Couldn’t have done it all without an amazing group of friends to model and the talents of Whitney and Jaclyn. Big thanks to Headcandi, Kenzie Kapp and Maureen’s Creations for sending over some amazing hats and fascinators; Dress & Dwell, Clodhoppers, Circe and Leona for all the spring dresses and Dandelion for a great selection of accessories. Really excited to share it all. It’s going to be a bright April!
p.s. – This is what your middle console looks like after a morning with Jaclyn. By far the best this part of my car has ever looked!
