What I'm Loving in April 2015


April seems to be the month for taking trips. In 2013, I went to Florida and Jamaica, and in 2014, I enjoyed the Florida beach life again. So it's no surprise that I'll be taking a short trip back to Florida again in a week to visit family. But we're also adding a little excursion to Costa Rica for #thehubs' 30th birthday. So these are all the fab things I'm loving this month -- you might sense a beachy theme.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Espadrilles - Later this week I'll share all my top picks from the Lilly + Target collaboration, but one item I can't wait to get my hands on will be these Upstream Espadrilles for $24! They're only available online so hopefully they will ship fast so I can wear them while strolling the Costa Rican beaches.

Shopbop Fine Prints - There's just something about spring that says fine prints! I simply can't wait to rock more colorful pieces this month like the fine prints on Shopbop. Don't get me wrong, I'm still totally into monochromes and black and white (you should see my house), but a fun print outfit never hurt nobody. And these Clover Canyon pieces totally scream rain forest paradise. Don't get me started on the spring and summer sandals too!

Hayden-Harnett Passport Case - Remember that time my dog ate my passport? Well, fortunately, I was able to get a new one in time for my trip. And I've secured it in this cute, multipurpose passport case that's also ideal for holding boarding passes and my other go-to cards. What's not to love?

Home Decor Cheers Tray - So the two biggest things on my mind in April are home decor and traveling. And as you might have guessed from this DIY post, I'm really into coffee table trays right now. I have the one seen there in the living room and I have two of these "cheers" lacquer trays -- one for holding mail and another in my office. This is from Cathy's Concepts, which has a ton of other great monogrammed kitchen decor items.

Crate & Barrel French Press - #thehubs has officially ruined my life by picking up this French Press from Crate and Barrel. I usually don't own things like waffle makers and coffee makers at home because I believe having those things so easily accessible makes it way too difficult not to use them. And I was completely right. Come on over if you want some coffee. We're brewing like every day.

Game of Thrones Season 5 - After waiting an entire year, which is ridiculous by the way, Game of Thrones is finally back! The fifth season aired April 12 so you already know my Sunday nights are stacked. If you're a fan of the show, take a look at this Game of Thrones Valar Morghulis infographic for a bit of fun.

What are you loving this month?
