My Latest Snag: Spring Top.
I treated myself this week to this fun $80 spring top, which brings to mind Love Shack Fancy in a major way and will brighten my wardrobe as we head into spring. A few other spring tops I love at the moment, many under $100:

Weekend Musings: I Have My Way of Praying.
I love this excerpt from Mary Oliver’s “How I Go to the Woods”:
Ordinarily, I go to the woods alone, with not a single
friend, for they are all smilers and talkers and therefore
I don’t really want to be witnessed talking to the catbirds
or hugging the old black oak tree. I have my way of
praying, as you no doubt have yours.
A nudge to cultivate the self-awareness to know what you need.
P.S. More on prayer here.
+I just restocked our stationery shelf with personalized stationery for mini, simple bordered cards with my name and my husband’s name at the top (in black, with black border), and gift enclosure cards.
+The chicest black trousers.
+Obsessed with this colorblocked, sporty spring jacket.
+Love this tiered shirtdress in both colorways…
+Micro’s outfit for mini’s birthday party arrived and j’adore: this cashmere sweater with these pull-on seersucker pants. I don’t know if other boy moms have difficulty getting the right fit in pants — sometimes they are SO balloony and other times they are way too narrow and I can hardly button them. These pants are perfection: they are pull-on but on the slimmer side. I also bought him these shorts in case it turns out to be warmer that day.
+I shared a ton of cute children’s shoes here but wanted to also mention this Cienta-inspired pair for under $20, which come in great colors. A perfect shoe for something like the outfit above — a tad bit dressier than a sneaker, but not so formal that it feels like Sunday best.
+I have these floating bath toy sets in my cart: this for mini, this for micro. I find long afternoon baths are a great way to hit the re-set button if the kids are getting wild or antsy or angsty. A Magpie reader once wrote: “put a fish in water…” with regards to children, and it’s so true. Water is a cure-all. New water toys are even better.
+This ASOS score is in my cart ATM. I just LOVE it. So dramatic and so fun. I am contemplating it for my 12 year anniversary this August!
+Summer brides REJOICE. This little number is absolute perfection, and under $200.
+I found some toddler GG sneaks on sale here! By a total stroke of good fortune, I found a pristine pair on TheRealReal for mini to wear with her birthday dress and I know a few of you have been hunting, too.
+This Mirth top is fabulous.
+Love the texture of this pendant — on super duper sale, too!
+I’ve mentioned these before, but these bowls are the best for little ones. A perfect size and depth, plus microwavable and dishwasher safe. The handles come in…handy (ha!), too.
+I love this mirror.
+Spring pink Vejas!
+Perfect everyday summer dress.
